This Wailea resort lives up to its "Grand" name with 40 acres of beachfront property, eight bars and restaurants, a 50,000-square-foot spa (the largest in Hawaii), and a priceless art collection that includes large bronzes by Fernando Botero and sculptures by Fernand Leger. Ask any kid on Maui where the best pool on the island is and the hands-down winner is also here—the Wailea Canyon Activity Pool, a mini water park that's actually nine pools with slides and an interconnecting river that carries swimmers along at varying speeds. Adults have plenty of options, too, such as exclusive use of the Hibiscus adult pool and access to five neighboring golf courses. The predominantly peach-colored room decor of floral prints and white-painted wood furniture errs a bit on the side of grandmotherly, but the 787 rooms are spacious (640 square feet) and have enormous soaking tubs, lots of closet space, and private balconies—be sure to ask for an ocean-view room for the stunning sunsets over Wailea Beach.—Cathay Che

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
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.
