My group of 4 girlfriends stayed here for a weeklong golf and pickleball vacation in early December. This is an amazing rental unit as it is spotless and so tastefully updated. The carpets are brand new and the furnishings in great condition. The hosts have furnished the unit with all the comforts of home and you will want to spend all your time enjoying the wonderful views from the spacious lanai. Beach access pool, hot tub, gym and tennis/ pickleball courts are just steps away . Stunning golf courses are abundant in the local area. Check in and check out was seamless and hosts and management staff were all extremely helpful. Our stay in Makena Surf F-206 was a dream! We will definitely look forward to staying in F-206 again.

Smelly furniture, old kitchen appliances, rock-hard mattress- but the best view on Maui. Price has tripled in the 9 years we've stayed there, but they do not invest the money, they just keep taking, while the service goes down. Resort fee, 10% service fee, but only 2 cleanings in 9 days. Some people there still welcome with Aloha, but the Hyatt brand has stolen any hospitality this place used to have.

Our 3 bedroom unit was great for our family of 6 plus a 1 year old. The unit was very comfortable and clean/quiet. Amazing location on the ocean with beautiful views - never need to leave. Sunsets on our lanai was spectacular. The pool was close by and convenient - the hot tub was excellently warm. There are two beaches a couple minutes walk away. The area of ocean right outside the unit is an excellent snorkeling spot - we saw many swarms of fish and turtles during our week here. Kitchen was well stocked. I wish Hyatt could provide Pack n Play or Cribs to borrow while here - none were in unit. The folding sofa bed was very difficult to fold - we needed to call the staff to come in and fold it.

If you’re looking for p&q, this location is for you! Very few people on the beach, breathtaking views… nice & quiet - except for the construction being done on the pool. I completely understand renovation, but I wish I was informed beforehand, so that I could make an informed decision as to whether to select this property, or even hold off for another week or so. Again, the property was wonderful, staff was wonderful & it is an amazing location!

Unit F104 is in a fabulous location, this is what you pay for. It’s quiet and away from people with 2 beaches. Unit could use some updating, especially the Master Bath which has very poor lighting and 90ish shower and vanity. My family of 6 had a great vacation in this remote, quiet unit. We rarely saw other people. Good area for snorkeling and turtle sightings. Thus could be a fabulous condo with the proper updates.

Excellent unit with superb views of the islands and ocean. The unit was very clean and well equipped. I really enjoyed the sliding glass doors that opened fully to the outside. the complex is well laid out and very peaceful. I highly recommend staying at Makena Surf.

You simply can't beat the views from your quiet, secluded lanai at Makena Surf. They are stunning, and the lanais are large & comfortable. as are the condos themselves. Unfortunately, the property needs maintenance. The exteriors of the buildings, including handrails on the stairways, were consistently dirty. There were ants in the master bathroom & after ant traps were placed by the staff, they seemed to multiply -- I discovered a couple of ants in my bed (gross!), as well as in the living & dining rooms. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom did not work. The Samsung television in the living room was a smart TV, but only a remote control for the cable box was provided. The TV remote control was not provided, nor were any directions for accessing streaming services. The mattress in the master bedroom is worn out & lumpy, and needs to be replaced. I woke up with a sore back every morning. Be warned that there are NO elevators on this property, so if you select a second or third floor condo, you will have to carry your suitcases, groceries, etc. up the stairs. Moreover, I was not informed until after I made the nonrefundable payment in full that one of the pools would not be operational during our stay. It turned out to be the pool on the far side of the property which was NOT within walking distance from our condo. Worse, there are no restroom facilities near the pools!! (Having stayed in a number of resorts on Maui, I can attest that it is normal to find restroom facilities in the pool areas.) Guests are expected to return to their condos and use the restrooms there! That would be workable if your condo is near the pool area. But having to drive back to the other side of the property and climb up to the third floor? That eliminated one of the most important reasons I travel to Maui at least three times per year: long, leisurely afternoons by the pool reading great books & soaking up the sun. What a major disappointment!! And although the staff promised to get back to me to let me know how the situation would be resolved and an accommodation provided . . . they NEVER did.

Great location with wonderful views. Our particular unit was about tired and in much need of a refresh but overall we enjoyed our stay. Hopefully, next time the pool construction will be complete and we can get some pool time :)

Great location on the beach. This particular condo (B-106) was in need of a major makeover. The bed was so sold and decrepit it had a downward slant. I woke up every morning with a back ache. Even the outdoor furniture was somewhat shabby. Great location in the complex, but not worth the price under the circumstances. The cleaning service was substandard.

Disliked · I booked an oceanfront condo but we were set back from the ocean and other buildings were closer and in front of us. The unit under us was being worked on. We dealt with banging noises, saws and sanders. We had painters on our actual balcony and looking inside our condo and windows. Plastic over our master bathroom window. The pictures shown on booking are not of the unit we stayed in. The units shown showed the 2nd bedroom as 2 queens or 4 bunk beds. This unit was no where in the booking pictures. We were told by the staff they had no other units available for us.
