Big Fans

Overall we were very happy with our stay here.

We stayed for 6 days - two adults and two kids. Our suite was spacious, with an amazing view of the ocean. Rooms aren't brand new but are in good shape - bathrooms are a highlight, large and beautiful. And our beds were comfortable, even the pullout couch wasn't bad.

The resort was full but it never felt overcrowded, we always managed to find a chair for our things around the pool. The pool areas are understated but very nice and relaxing, with a swim up bar and a water slide that my kids rode about 300 times. And the beach was beautiful. The seas were rough some days, and calm others. But it was a fun place to play in the waves, the water is clear and beautiful, the sand brown and soft.

Again, nothing is brand new, in fact some things even show their age in places. But the space is open and airy and really well taken care of, so even with its age, it feels luxurious.

We had a few moments where food service took too long. But there were always apologies and an entire meal was taken off our bill because it came late.

The hotel van/car service took us wherever we wanted to go, they arrived quickly, and every driver we encountered was helpful and fun to talk to.

In fact the service for our entire stay was great. Attentive, friendly and thoughtful.

We would definitely go back. Hopefully we'll get that chance.

Beautiful and relaxing

Our nine nights at the Fairmont were incredible. The suite was spotless and gorgeous, with a huge balcony and luxurious bathroom. Pool and grounds are beautiful and so relaxing. Plenty of room for all guests to find a spot by pool or beach. Outstanding service and very relaxed and friendly. Dinner at Ko was lovely. Food at all restaurants was top notch. Compared to the other resorts in Wailea, the Fairmont is the most private and relaxed. Special shout out to Branson, our concierge who helped us plan our days. He’ll tell you anything you need to know about the island. Will definitely stay here again. Can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Maui. Photo is sunset at the hotel beach.

Beautiful grounds and beach with friendly staff

Solid resort in Maui but not at the level of other Fairmonts we've stayed at. We are by no means snobs, but at this price point we didn't feel like the value matched the (high) price. The grounds are gorgeous, the service was excellent (Tara who checked us in was awesome!) but our rooms were nothing very special. I also got food poisoning at the poolside restaurant on our first day (at the resort/on vacation) so that definitely put a damper on things. Personally, we'll try somewhere else next time.
