What Past Guests Are Saying
traveled with family
Wonderful week in paradise!
The staff at ali'i Resorts is fantastic and helped us to plan fun adventures for our family throughout our stay. The housekeeping staff was attentitive and worked hard each day to help make our stay great. The property and condo were both very well maintained and beautiful- with spectacular views throughout. One of our favorite features was the patio and the amazing view that we enjoyed while dining outdoors. The beach access was convenient, just a short walk down a paved path to the beach that offered kid friendly boogie boarding waves and rock outcropings for snorkeling. We have stayed in a few of the luxury hotels in Wailea and prefer the relaxed environment of Makena Surf.
Great location; wonderful view with convenient access to everyth
Service from ali'i Resorts was wonderful; both housekeeping and maintenance. The staff were attentive to details and very responsive to any need. The condo was beautiful - the pictures were very accurate. We used the beach and the pool/jacuzzi each day and they were wonderful. My only comment on the improvement side is that the WiFi was not reliable throughout the unit, but if you stayed in the living area it worked.
This was our fourth time staying in C103. We loved the fantastic view of the ocean and the beach; the well-equippe kitchen; furniture (beds, sofa, dining table) in good condition; responsiveness of ali'i Resorts (the rental company) to any requests or issues. However, we were very disappointed in the cleanliness of the condo with this visit. The were rings around both toilet bowls and mildew in the shower stalls. We had the daily maid service, but the actual cleaning was very hasty and inconsistent. The area rug in the living area was sticky and appeared to need cleaning. On a better note, when we identified these issues to ali'i, they were extremely apologetic and proactive in improving things during the remainder of our stay. Despite our disappointment with the cleanliness of the condo, we still had a wonderful stay and have already booked for 2013.
The views from the main area are unreal
The service was fabulous. From the mgmt company to the daily linen service. The condo itself is unreal.. The location the views have the "holy" and "wow" factor. The ocean views areincredible..when they say ocean view they mean it. It is right in front of you! Was there a negative not really but you do need a vehicle as it is somewhat isolated from restaurents.
Beautiful condo! Just as pictured. Easy walk to beach. Perfect location in Maui by excellent snorkeling. Do bring a few citronella candles for the patio and some bug spray.
too expensive for that what you get
This older appartment has a nice seaview and is well maintained by alii Resort - the daily housekeeping is convenient - but it is just too expensive for that what you get - the appartment is old (what we knew), but the carpets in the rooms are as old as the appartment, you feel it would be better not to go without shoes, the water in the shower didnÂ´t get as hot as it should (we complained about that, but it did not change) and what was just a no-go: even in a first floor appartment the owner denied using the safe for guests!! There was a safe, yes - but only for the owner. We felt like "charge as much as possible - offer as less as possible". We would not recommend it. It was the most expensive and less comfortable place we stayed on Hawaii!
Response from Ali'i Resorts, LLC - 09/13/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We feel that we should mention that the condo had a complete gut and remodel in 2007 and was furbished with top of the line materials and furnishings. Our maintenance staff investigated the hot water during your stay, per your request, and found the heater functioning. However, we have decided to move forward and replace the hot water heater in an effort to maintain the condo as a first class resort destination. We hope that we have the opportunity to serve you and your family in the future.
The definition of paradise.
We thoroughly enjoyed this property. It is first rate in every way. The view of the beach and ocean is absolutely spectacular. Everything in the unit is in excellent condition and up to date. Bedding was very comfortable. Top-notch kitchen appliances. The unit is further from the beach than other buildings, so there is a short walk (less than 5 mins) down a hill to get to the beach (and back up the hill to return). You can hear vehicles driving on the road from the Master Bedroom starting around 7:00 am, but it was not an annoyance. The sound was muted, otherwise extremely quiet. I will add that we were completely impressed with ali'i Resorts, and they exceeded our expectations. Check-in was awesome, maid service, toiletries, etc. were excellent. We loved it and hope to return.
We stayed in Makena Surf for 12 days and loved it! The unit was beautifully upgraded and was great for us and our 3 children. The views were all that we hoped for, we swam with sea turtles in the water right in front of our condo. We saw numerous whales from our lanai and amazing sunsets. We will be back for sure!
We enjoyed 2 glorious weeks in Maui with our stay exclusively at condo C-103 at the Makena Surf Resort. The view is incredible from the lanai and living room/dining room area. Every morning we ate our breakfast on the lanai, with binoculars on hand for spotting whales. The resort is secluded enough to have privacy but close in proximity to many restaurants, shops and activities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to this condo. The condo is beautiful and well kept by ali'i Resorts. Ali'i was there to greet us when we arrived in the evening and were very attentive to any of our needs. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Top notch condo on the best beach!
We were met by a representative from ali'i Resorts. She was friendly and helpful. The place was immaculate. We loved the master suite and gorgeous kitchen. Having laundry facilities was very handy. The best part about this unit is it's location. We could see whales from our lanai. This is the nicest beach I've been to.
Moreland Hills, Ohio
We have stayed in almost all the buildings at Makena Surf within the last 10 years and C-103 is by far our favorite. December 2011 was our 4th time in C-103 and we already have booked for 2012! The interior of the unit is high end and reminds us of the Ritz in Kapalua and the Orchid on the Big Island. We also like that the second bed room has two full beds vs two twins or one king-much more flexible for adults and older children. The kitchen is very well stocked. The view from the lanai is just as nice as the beachfront units in other buildings. We also like the floor plan in buildings C and a, where the bedrooms are away from the entrance.
Alii Resorts - true Customer Service
Alii Resorts is by far one of the best managment companies in the business. I would not waste your time with a travel agent when it deals with Maui. Alii Resorts team was simply amazing and made our beautiful location/accomadations even better!!!
We really loved Makena. It was very beautiful. We have been to several places on the island and really liked this resort. I did feel the condo was a little to business decorated and it didn't feel warm. It had a spectacular view however and was right next to the beach. The bed also made my back hurt! I think it needs a new mattress. Also, a Hawaiian decorator so it can feel inside like you are in Hawaii and not New York. Besides that, I loved it. Very clean and the kitchen was wonderful. The booking resort was wonderful too. Very very friendly and welcoming.
