With 40 acres of grounds, including a Japanese garden and eight bars and restaurants, along with five neighboring golf courses, the Grand Wailea is indeed "very large and expansive." Rooms are "equally spacious, with excellent bath amenities" and Polynesian decor. A massive pool complex and private beach facilities keep families busy, though there is also a 20,000-square-foot kids' club, where youngsters can take ukulele lessons. Order Californian fare at Bistro Molokini, tropical drinks at the poolside Grotto Bar.
