. Only downside: they clean every 3 days but the floor would have required more frequent vacuuming (sand, etc). Overall an excellent experience. Very comfortable room with nice decoration and furniture. Incredible view of the sea (from my unit).Excellent place to stay Near the most beautiful beaches in Maui.

.Wailea Grand Champions The best vacation in my life.

. They have BBQ grills but you need match-lite charcoal. Travelers tip on saving a few bucks Load up at Costco when you get your rental car and you are set for the week. We cooked fresh fish every night and saved tons of money. It was quite a hike up from the shopping center but good exercise for the heart. The unit had a deck overlooking the golf course with the ocean and the island of Lanai in the background. The condo was spacious, clean and it was quiet and private.Great alternative to hotels It was a very pleasant stay in Maui.

Get souvenirs at Costco before going home -. Go to Costco before checking to condo to pick-up water and other groceries for the week-- if have room in the rental car. NO need to bring beach towels as the condo provides the towels and washer/dryer available-- takes up too much space in the suitcase- August is warm and humid so best time to go to the beach or play tennis is before 10:00am-- the tradewinds pick up after 12 noon so the waves get rougher. We would go back again , if we have the chance. We requested a later check-out but the water was still off after 3:00pm. We had maid service daily and the only problem was since the adjoining condo needed work, the water was shut off 4 hours one day(9-1) and after 9am on our last day which the main reservation desk was not aware of. It was the perfect getaway vacation for our family of 5 adults.Great location This condo was very convenient-had great ocean views- quiet and within walking distance to the beach.

. And while the place is a bit pricy (although not as much as a resort in the major resort areas) you can also save money by cooking as many of your own meals in the kitchen as you want. As I said, not for everyone, as some people on vacation don’t want to be bothered by anything. Or you can pay an extra daily fee to have the hotel’s staff clean the room. You’re responsible for your own cleaning in the condo (but the necessities are supplied for this). The vacationer gets a fully furnished, fully equipped condo. Basically condo owners lease their condos back to the hotel, when they’re not using them.A Wonderful Value While not for everyone, the Wailea Ekolu Village is a perfect setting for those willing to do it themselves on some matters.

. Travelers tip on shopping Shopping steps away, as well as dinning. Walking distance to shopping center and the beach. Our had a magnificent view. Good place for someone who wants to relax in quiet place. Nicely kept grounds. Have last minute accomodation request which was honored.Left with good memories Responsive management.

. Travelers tip on shopping Stock up at Costco on your way out of the airport for some good deals for the family. Highly recommended and would return there on my next trip. This resort is set back about 1 mile from the beaches in Wailea and therefore the location is ideal if you are looking for a very quiet and relaxing time. Should you encounter any of the staff they are super friendly. The condos that are offered are very nice and clean inside as well as very comfortable.Quiet and relaxing location We stayed at this resort for just under a week and it was a very enjoyable place to be located.

Had a great time Nice Condo.

. The walking convenience to shops, tennis, hotels, and beach is a major plus. Gorgeous view of ocean and golf course. Starting to show some age but my wife and I have very high standards and were not disappointed.Extremely Pleasant Very nice condos as advertised.

They often have excellent food at reasonable prices--plus, if you are staying in a condo with a stove and fridge, you can cook many of your own meals and save money for recreation rather than eating!. Food can be very expensive at the restaurants, but I recommend checking out the local grocery stores. Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay Wailea/Makena has beautiful beaches and spectacular snorkeling, you just need to be prepared to walk a good distance to them or rent a car and drive. The view was beautiful and the overall location was very quiet. The A/C worked well. The rooms were clean, the housekeeping came to change the towels and sheets daily.Good and clean The hotel was good and clean.

.Panoramic ocean views at Wailea, Maui, HA Spectacular view, spacious with top of the line TVs and appliances.

Highly recommended, especially for families!. Nicely equipped kitchen.Wailea Ekolu Stayed 4 nights, very happy with the room (2 bed/2 bath), beautiful view.

. The ground floor may be the best location since the balconies are not as high- but still completely contained and may still have a view. Be very specific in your needs, since all of the condos are different. We were completely happy! Tip for families with small children- some of the condos have only showers and no bathtubs. The resort was quiet with very nice swimming pools. We had bananas growing right outside our balcony.Beautiful Resort Our condo was beautiful with an ocean view.

Big Beach is unspoilt and big enough that it was never crowded (about 3-4 miles south of the resort). Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay Beaches that are ’parks’ have public parking. Swimming with Turtles & diving at Molokini memorable. Weather was great. You have to drive to the beaches - which are spectacular - and you need to find out where to park; although all beaches on Maui are public, some of the hotels are built to restrict access to them by not allowing parking. Kitchen was well equiped and more functional than our own. Mostly decorated in Pier1 / Asian style - very nice.Grand Champions Resort - nice room The room had a 42" plasma, and a shower about 6feet square with 2 shower heads.

. If you arrive before the 3:00 pm check-in (not flexible) stop for some lunch and then do your first grocery shopping. Travelers tip on shopping The largest Safeway in the state is in the Kihei area, on your right as you drive down from the airport in Kahului. The baby’s soles were filthy from walking on the carpet. The custom of removing shoes actually leaves carpet dirtier if you don’t wear socks. One complaint--the carpet needed cleaning. We never had trouble parking our two cars. There was a warning in the unit about an ant invasion in Maui, but we never saw a single one. We had our own grill on our lanai, which was handy, and DVR. The layout lent itself well to our group, or two couples traveling together, since each bedroom had its own full bath. Our unit was very quiet and air conditioned.Worked well for us We were a three-generation group--me, my 24 year old daughter, my oldest daughter, her husband, and 18 month old.

. The grocery stores usually run competitive ads and pricing and if you shop the specials, your foodbill is not much more than what you would pay back in the mainland. Overall, the restaurants in Maui are spendy and the food,at best, is okay. A condo with a complete kitchen is a great option to managing your food budget. Would go back for another stay. The quite setting made for a peaceful stay. The location regarding proximity to beaches, shopping, and restaurants was good. Only one complaint, the dishwasher did not work.Great value and a great place to stay if your looking for a more quiet experience.

. Shops at Wailea are where you check in and offer high end shopping like Louis Vuitton, Tommy Bahama, etc. Supermarkets in Kehei. Lots of exceptional sushi near the hotel. Travelers tip on saving a few bucks Drive into Kehei for meals that won’t break your budget. The unit had no deadbolt which was my only safety concern as a realtor entered unit while I was in the unit and preparing to take a shower before going out on a Friday evening at 6:30 PM. Assess to very basic pool facilities but no hot tub. The views were SPECTACULAR with views of golf course, ocean sunsets and Molokini. Very nicely decorated with 2 bathrooms.Exceptional Views This condo had all the amenities of home.

. The Feast at Le Le in Lahaina was woth the trip alone! A true Hawaiian experience. Should have drove ourselves and saves $400. The trip to Hanna was a 11 hours in a van. Tropical fish swimming everywhere, coral and sea turtles! The ATV trip was awesome. Don’t pay anyone to snorkel! Go to Lahaina ,rent gear for 5 bucks and snorkel on black rock beach. We are already planning to go back and stay here again! Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay There are brochures everywhere on what and where to do. Its also like 1/2 mile from a beautiful outdoor mall. The pictures online, do it no justice. The view out our window was to die for. Room service was fast and never intrusive. Ours had two full baths, a full kitchen with stainless fridge, every pot, pan and whatever you would need to cook bake and entertain. These are condos worth nearly a million dollars. When we arrived I was flat out stunned. At the last minute I almost changed it to a hotel for more money.Way more than we expected!!! My wife and I booked this package online and I selected this location solely based on other reviews and of course price.

. You can also clearly see Molokini. We had breakfast every morning on our large balcony watching whales. Stock up on water and food. Travelers tip on saving a few bucks There’s a Costco near the Airport. Condo has everything you need. After staying there I can see why.Better than a Hotel any day I rely on the reviews when selecting a hotel/condo and this was the only one that was a 5.

. Get Cupon from Concierge. Travelers tip on dining The general store at Hailemaile (excuse the spelling) hands down the best dining on Maui and a suprise of a deal as well. This place is a steal of a deal. Definitely a pleasant suprise as to what was expected, but we didn’t have the liberty of all the new reviews. Had a few problems with a toilet but staff was extremely prompt, helpful and courteous.Upscale without the Upsell!!!!!! A very nice facility.

. Sunrise atop Haleakala is beautiful, but told sunset is better. Don’t miss the Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour, Old Lahaina Luau, Pacific Whale Foundation Molokini snorkel cruise, Nakalele blowhole, Olivine Pools, Road to Hana, & Makena Beach. Stella Blue’s in Kehei is delicious. Worth the drive! The PuPu Lounge in Kehei is awesome! Prices are great, food is delicious. Great spot for whalewatching. We would love to go back! Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay The Gazebo restaurant (bkfst/lunch only) in Kapalua has great prices, great food, & huge portions. Since the community was so quiet, this wasn’t an issue for us. The shutters allow for privacy, but don’t block a lot of noise. There were window AC units, but we never needed them. The only improvement they could have made was putting glass in the windows--in true Hawaiian style, they did not have windows, but had wooden shutters with screens. If you want a quiet, relaxing place to stay--this is it. The community was very quiet and the grounds were immaculate! We were a short drive from spectacular beaches, shopping, golf, and restaurants. There were two electric grills on the lanai along with a table and chairs where we enjoyed our am coffee and a few evening meals. There was also a TV with DVD/VCR in the bedroom. The condo was spacious with a large bedroom, two full bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, a dining area and spacious family room with a large TV, DVD/VCR and cable. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our private lanai and secluded garden walkout. We were there for 10 days in November and had a great experience.Honeymoon in paradise My husband and I loved our condo (unit 1703) and recommend it highly.
