The Makena Beach and Golf Resort is a awesome property, my favorite on the south side and a great value for your dollar. The staff is very friendly nice. The grounds are beautiful, full of greenery and very well maintained. The beach is pretty and roomy enough not to feel crowded. Try to get a room with a view it's well worth the money."
