Opened in 2016, Residence Inn by Marriott Maui Wailea is the brand’s first foray in Hawaii. The modern, all-suite property features spacious one- and two-bedroom units that are perfect for families, each one with a fully equipped kitchen and lanai (balcony) overlooking the beach or mountain range in Maui.
Guests of the Maui hotel enjoy complimentary breakfast, complimentary grocery delivery service, an outdoor swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, a fitness center, sports court, guest laundry facility, and a 24/7 onsite market selling snacks and beverages, toiletries and souvenirs. Parents — if you like to golf, there are three courses near the hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights for our 25th wedding anniversary. Starting with the good points, there’s a shuttle that will take you everywhere in Wailea, beaches, shopping area and pick you up and pool towels supplied, complimentary breakfast (ok), nice pool.
The points that grated, $25/day parking fee, $15/day beach chair hire, no restaurant, happy hour for only 3 cocktails and $1 off draft beer (hold on!), no espresso coffee and only drip filtered coffee machine in room, pump shampoo,conditioner and body wash and lastly no special body products to pamper yourself with.
The other resorts, whilst no doubt more expensive as they were in the beach, at least had little pop up bars that sold espressos, sandwiches etc to keep you going through the day. Compared to the Marriott in Honolulu (Beach Resort), that was so much better and more comfortable than this one. The stand out was our Kiwi/US shuttle driver, happy and engaging, unlike some of the other staff.
One of the best Residence Inn’s I’ve seen. Very new, amazing breakfast bar with iced coffee, hot food, fruits, and waffles, plenty of seating-open air layout. Plenty of grill space for dinner- abundant pool chairs. Gym was large and nice- complimentary local shuttle takes you to shopping and beaches. We will return!
