Our family of six stayed here 7 nights and were pleased. The unit had top end finishes and appliances. Daily touch up housekeeping was included. The concierge was terrific as was the shuttle service with an Uber type app. We also found the onsite pool to be good with two hot tubs. For late departures they have a shower and changing room. The GW facilities were fully available. A good spot for families.

Property's Favourite Review
Just returned from 6 days here and can't wait to go back! We were traveling with 2 adult children, and really debated between the main hotel and the villas. SO glad we went with the villas. Everything felt huge, spacious, and was very clean. We had a deluxe ocean view and the view never got old. The kitchen was equipped with first class dishes, pots and pans, and so much more. We were more than impressed. Bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and spacious. Silly thing, but they even provided laundry detergent which was nice to not have to buy. Walked or drove to the main hotel and sat at the adult pool daily. Easy walk, or can valet the car too. Walked the path to neighboring hotels for some variety. Pool food, drinks and service was really good. Sparkle our favorite server and so sweet! Sat at the beach too, no charge for chairs. Had a great dinner at HumuHumu...pricey but delicious, the sunset was worth it. Had a late flight the last day, so were able to use showers at Hoolei pool area before we left. They were nice and clean too. And the staff was amazing! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed at three villas during our trip around the island. Ho’olei is not the most expensive, not the closest to the ocean front, but the staff service would make us come back again and again. The hard product is still a well deserving 5 star resort, but the service is well beyond expected. Staff will send personalized text messages days prior to arrival to arrange for our children’s birthdays, our nanny’s accommodations, and dinner reservations. On arrival, staff addressed my children in surnames and treated them with the upmost respect. Property offers designated pool for villa guests, shuttle services to the main resort/pool/luau. The front office even delivered printouts to my teenager working on his homework when the villa printer ran out of paper. This is the case where service speaks for its brand, and makes up for the “slightly” further away location, being about 10min walk to the oceanfront.

We rented 24-3 from PMI vacation rentals. This is a very nice 3 bed, 3 1/2 bath unit with nice furnishings. The lanai is huge with a bbq, dining and patio furniture, BUT it is directly above the main road so the noise level is high at times. No ocean view due to trees, but lovely if you can handle the traffic noise. Once inside with doors closed, it’s very peaceful. Please note that if you rent from any source other than the Grand Wailea, you may not be welcome to use the GW pools, gym, towels, etc.. They are happy to take your money at the restaurants and bars, but don’t get close to the pools, as they will sternly tell you to get away. Although you’re staying at “The Ho’olei AT the Grand Wailea” not “The Ho’olei BEHIND the Grand Wailea” the GW does NOT consider you a guest. While we were there, two of the GW pools were closed anyway and we found the pool at the Ho’olei to be beautiful, quiet and perfectly adequate.

We had an incredible week in Maui staying at the Ho'olei aligned with the Grand Wailea resort. We had #87-6, the 3BR, 3.5 BA with 3 Kings two level villa. Awesome views from the large lanai. Loved that you could open all the doors on two joining sides of the large family room area, although we never really sat as a family very long in the family room since we were on the go. The concierge and staff that supported us during the week were exceptional, a shout out to Tanya for engaging with us before our visit and during our visit to ensure a terrific week for my wife and i and our 3 adult children. Having a shuttle service using an app to go to local stores and restaurants was a terrific added bonus. Especially if we wanted a late night run down to Botero or just to walk around the GW and beach. While we only used the pool at the Villas a couple of times, they were largely empty of other folks and really nice. Having access to the GW was expected, and the GW was terrific with great staff service at the restaurants, shops, bell desk, and across the board. We love the GW's pools and beach location, not to mention the various hot tubs and slides. Did i mention the awesome Grotto Bar - nothing like taking slides with a drink in hand. We love the Wailea laid back vibe, location to the beach, access to great restaurants and bars, and above all the views of the Pacific.

We stayed at the Hoolei ,December 2022 ,we have stayed at the Hoolei 6 times prior since 2014 ,this last trip was a real disappointment the villa we had was not cleaned to usual Hoolei standards in the past ,the area rug in living room was so dirty the bottom of our feet were black from walking across the rug gross ! Our ensuite bathroom toilet run for minutes after using it making horrid noises ,the shower in the main ensuite need repairs in the handles ,which my husband did ,and the dryer only worked one 1 setting and you needed to reset that setting for 3 cycles to get a dry load. The shuttle service was down to 2 drivers great guys ,but they were so busy the waits were long at times ,not due to their trying though. The Hoolei pool was not cleaned regularly as we swam with dead bees and leaves and debris,small kids had thrown handfuls of gravel into the bottom of the pool that you stepped on when you were walking in the pool ,from what we enjoyed many times before ,was now a real disappointment,and for 4200.00 a nite ,such a let down ,we will return to Maui ,but we will not be returning to the Hoolei, it’s completely lost it’s sparkle ,it’s getting old and tired looking .

We booked a villa through the Grand Wailea. So we paid the premium price that included access to hotel amenities, housekeeping and the free shuttle. I expected luxury and that’s really not what we got. Let’s start with the villas themselves. I believe they are each individually owned. Which means you really have no idea what you’re getting into as far as decor and whether furnishings are decades old or updated. We went with family, so there were a total of 4 villas in our party. They were all extremely different. Ours had newer carpet, but the others’ were stained and lumpy. The toilet seat finishes were worn and bubbled up. Our villa had the worst smell that hit you as soon as you walked in. It smelled like cat urine, cigarettes and rotten fruit. I didn’t tell the front desk because I didn’t want them crawling all over the house while we were trying to relax on vacation. Besides, I couldn’t find the source myself and I have the nose of a bloodhound. The hotel is a Cat Sanctuary, so I’m guessing that part of the problem is that a cat got in at some point previously. I found a cigarette butt in the dryer, which probably should have been found by housekeeping before we checked in. Speaking of housekeeping; The villa was not cleaned well upon check-in. Every handle in the kitchen has sticky. I wiped down all the bathroom counters and they were pretty gross. There was a mound of caked-on soap that had been there for who knows how long. The towels and washcloths had big dark stains on them half of the time, and those are from the hotel as far as I know. One nice thing about housekeeping is that they were good about getting to us early in the day. They even did our dishes and vacuumed the entire house. The Shuttle Service is hit or miss. The drivers themselves are AMAZING. But it can take a while for them to get to you. It’s not the drivers fault. I believe they only have 2 shuttles. I think the holdup comes from entitled people who call for the shuttle and then make the drivers wait. I waited 15-20 minutes twice, 5 minutes at other times. The Grand Wailea Resort itself is beautiful! Great places to eat, lots of pools and slides, and even some lovely shops. There is a lot of remodeling going on right now, so I’m sad that I didn’t get to see it in all it’s glory. Our villa was at the very top of the hill, so it was quite a walk to get to the hotel, about 10 minutes or so. Moral of the story? If I went back to Maui, I would stay at the Grand Wailea, but not in a villa at Ho’olei. While it’s nice to have a huge house, it’s not worth the price. It should be clean and updated for $4000 at night.

This villa was amazing! We stayed in 17-6. This three story villa, was beautifully decorated with a ton of space for our family of five. It is an end unit that overlooks the ocean across the street with the golf course on the other side. The kitchen is huge and fully stocked with anything you may need. We enjoyed fixing a quick breakfast here most mornings before we went out to explore the island. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. Having a washer and dryer was a huge plus. Our favorite part was being able to open up the glass wall of doors on the second story patio. The patio was fully furnished, complete with a Weber grill. It was the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night. Staying here you have complete access to the hotel across the street and they provide a shuttle if you don’t want to walk or drive. While we did enjoy the hotel, sometimes we preferred to stay at the pool at the villas instead. It was less crowded and we even had the pool to ourselves at times.

We stayed at a 3 bedroom villa in this compound and it was really beautiful. Rooms were spacious and the lanai/ balcony had some really nice views. In addition to a gym and outdoor pool in the gated compound, we could also use the facilities at the Grand Wailea (gym, pools) free of charge.

I cannot recommend booking with Ho'olei enough. We had four adults (two married couples) and one infant and the experience was fantastic. First off, the Ho'olei team was extremely communicative weeks before our trip even started. We had texts and emails with the concierge regularly As a parent of an infant, the included high chair, crib, and baby proofing of the unit was extremely helpful. It was all set up when we arrived. Additionally, as we had a full kitchen and grill, they have a grocery service that will pick up groceries before you get there. We arrived at 2AM our time (8PM Hawaii time) and all of our groceries were put away in the fridge and on the counter ready for us to use. It was a very nice thing after 14+ hours of travel. Check in was very smooth with clear instructions of how to use the property. We had a Deluxe Ocean View which meant we were in the last row. The views of the ocean were incredible with multiple whale sightings per day. The only downfall of this is that the walk down to the pool or the hotel was a little longer. However, if you do want to go to the hotel, free valet was included in our stay which was a huge bonus. Additionally, when you don't want to drive, there is a daily shuttle service you just text to get picked up that runs until 8PM (however the valets take over after 8PM) Our concierge helped us book 99% of our activities. We also had a reservation as Mama's fish house, which you have to book months in advance. At the last minute we had another guest wanting to join us for dinner and the concierge was able to contact the restaurant and add the additional guest. This was a fantastic trip and if you have any questions I am more than happy to answer it!!
