Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

Attentive, attentive, attentive. Get the picture? This resort was one of the best for us. We were on the club floor. The room was great and the bathroom was roomy, bright, and beautiful. We had a great view of the beautiful gardens, pools and the ocean. The club accommodations however were not up to par with other fine hotels and resorts we have stayed at, but the staff was great and did anything we asked. Not much choice for food, but lots of fruit.
We loved the 'Serenity Pool' and the staff there was excellent. They were very friendly and attentive to everything we needed. They also anticipated your needs and were quick to satisfy. We spent several days at that pool (no one under 21 allowed - so no unruly children around) and fully enjoyed the quiet reading time and service attention.
The restaurants on site were great. Duo is a quality steak house with a great seafood selection. Ferraro's was an excellent Italian restaurant between the pool and ocean with a fantastic view at sunset - then a clear star-studded sky at night. Romantic and relaxing with easy live music playing in the background.
There is a walking path that's about 1.5 miles and we used it every morning along the shoreline. Great views of the ocean and other islands.
Lots' of other restaurants in other resorts within walking distance along with other local restaurants within a short taxi ride.
We had a great 7 days of relaxation and celebration of our anniversary. We highly recommend the FS.

Sometimes it is annoying to read a less than "exceeding expectations" review of this spectacular property. In fact, if one doesn't find this paradise perfect, they will never. My husband and I have just returned from our fifth visit to the Four Seasons. We first came here because we were celebrating anniversaries, later it was birthdays, then we came to celebrate life. Now we come to renew and regenerate our bodies. Before our vacation was over, we began to plan our next trip. I asked my husband how the Four Seasons could ever top what we had experienced over the years. He said they don't have to, they just need to keep doing what they are doing. I agree.

Ill share a couple of experiences so you can get a sense of how absolutely committed this very special resort and its staff are to providing each guest a unique and beautiful memory of time spent there.

Every evening in the lobby lounge there is Hawaiian music and hula. It is one of the reasons we come back. We noticed our favorite celebratory champagne was listed on the lounge menu but not available through room service. We talked to our server, Candace, who in a matter of moments arranged to have a bottle delivered to our room.

In each area of the resort, from valets, pool attendants, recreation and beach setup, to servers in the lobby lounge, Ferraros, Duo and Spago, we were greeted by name. How do they do that?

Some people have complained about the need to get in line early to find a chair at the serenity pool. What could be more fair, if you get in line early, you get a chair. It isn't about who you are or how much money you have.

Food throughout the resort was excellent. Ferraros was a favorite for us and we were there almost every day of our 12 day stay. The fish perfectly prepared and with a glass of wine and the sun going down......well.... perfect. Of note were servers Robin, Lisa, and Rafeal at Ferraros, Candace in the lobby lounge, and most especially, Gilbert at Spagos who was a poet in his service to us. Douglas and the paddle board guys were very attentive, the beach set up staff accommodating.

The spa is worth the time and money. The facial Holly provided proved amazing. My husband noted my skin looked beautiful and he could see my cheek bones again!!! Thanks Holly!

I could go on and on, housekeeping, room service, valet, front desk staff, etc. A true piece of paradise.

The staff offer first class service, the hotel is amazingly beautiful, the rooms are large and very comfortable. The location was great, loved the beach and the pool. I would recommend Four Seasons to those with and without kids, they are accommodating for all. The beach side massage was heaven, a must do.

My husband and I took a quick trip post Thansksgiving to this resort as a belated anniversary celebration. We had read many good things, so, we were very much looking forward to our visit. While the grounds are absolutely lovely, and much of the staff was pleasant, we were quite disappointed with our room, and some of the front desk staff.

- We booked a Partial Ocean View with king bed and were given room 447. Upon entering the room there was a very strong, musty smell. We decided not to ask for different room, but, the next day when I awakened with a headache, my husband decided to ask the from desk if they had a different room, in our same category, available. They said that they did not have one in our room category, but, we could pay (a few hundred dollars more) to upgrade. What???
- There were a few other minor details that were disappointing about the room/housekeeping, but, not a huge deal, just not up to Four Seasons standards (FS Sharm El Sheikh setting the gold standard followed closely by FS Peninsula Papagayo): nealry half of the radio channel were not working in the in room/bathroom stereo system, dust on shelves in the closet, and film/dirt on the windows throughout Duo restaurant (which they were cleaning on the day of our departure).
- Also, it is worth noting that the clientele was different from that which I encountered at other Four Seasons...seemingly less polite and courteous, i.e. people were regularlly taking loudly on their cell phones at the adult quiet pool despite the staff reminding them that talking on cell phones were not permitted and inattentive parents allowing their children to run free at breakfast and the main pool.
*This is not the fault of the hotel and perhaps it was just an anomoly; however, it was enough to cause me to think twice beofore returning.

- Wonderful service
* A special thanks to Monu who drove us back from dinner at Matteo's, Angela at the Lobby Lounge, and Josephine at Duo.
- Beautiful grounds and facilities including the buildings and the pools
- Great amenities including complementary shuttle service around Wailea, a game room and sun screen at the pools and beach
- Georgous adult pool, with outstanding views
*Everyone seemed to want to be at this pool and the demand was there...there were lines to get in each morning and a wait list to get a chaise if you do not arrive early enough. This was an obvious sign to me that many other adults/couples were feeling the need to escape the chaos throughout the rest of the resort.

All in all, this resort seemed more suited for families or groups/couples that want to party loudly. I would not recomend it for couples looking for quiet, relaxing vacations, for romance, or for honeymoons (unless you want more of a party vibe). It is for this reason that I have booked my next visit to Hawaii at the new Four Seasons that is opening in Ko Olina (Oahu). I am hoping to have better luck there, as I love The Four Seasons.

Room Tip: Don't book Room 447-Partial Ocean View with king bed. There was a strong, musty smell in the roo...

What a wonderful surprise this hotel and resort was! Our garden room was very nice and very comfortable. Everyone on the staff was cheerful and helpful. Another great perk was that right off the beach there is a small reef for great snorkeling. We saw two large turtles and lots of colorful fish. Equipment is free for an hour and a small fee thereafter.

Room Tip: Room 383 has a beautiful view of the gardens. It was very quiet. Had a lush large bathroom.
