The Aston name is known for island hospitality across Hawaii, and the Aston Villas Hotel in Maui certainly fits the bill. The hotel's low-rise blocks overlook wooden walkways across seemingly infinite pools, fringed by the palm-laden shore of Kaanapali Beach. Suites and studios come equipped with a full kitchen and a private outdoor balcony. Down by the ocean, guests can sink their teeth into prime rib and sample the impressive wine list at the aptly-named Castaway Cafe, while enjoying the sunsets over Lanai and Molokai. Parents can play shuffleboard while the kids take ukulele lessons and learn how to make a lei at the Camp Kaanapali children's program (at nearby Aston Kaanapali  Shores). Guests visiting from November to April should bring their best binoculars for whale-watching season.

Neighborhood
Located among 11 acres of bright tropical greenery, the Aston Villas hotel sits on Kaanapali Beach in Lahaina, a former favorite of Hawaiian royalty and the heart of the lively West Maui region. Watersports, shops and restaurants are all located here, easily accessible from a tourist-friendly walkway running alongside the oceanfront resorts. Snorkel at northern Napili Bay, try kayaking and parasailing, or opt for the safe voyeurism of watching the graceful cliff divers at Puu Kekaa. Spend an afternoon wandering the old fishing port of Lahaina, five minutes away - stay until evening and you might see a more riotous side, plus copious amounts of feasting and entertainment at the Old Lahaina Luau on Front Street.
Hints and tips
  • Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas is best enjoyed as a quiet slice of paradise, but when you're yearning for adventure, use the resort's complimentary shuttle to pick up souvenirs at the open-air Whalers Village shopping center.
  • The athletically-inclined can enjoy eighteen holes at one of the nearby championship golf courses, or limber up on one of the Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch's 11 courts.

Very nice and taken care well!

Resort Quest was very nice. The desk folks were very welcomeing. When we told them it was our 53 anniversary they gave us a bottle of champagne. The room was great, had a small kitchen,bedroom area and at the end by the slider was a sofa, chair and table with 4 chairs. Slider went out on to a patio. The bathroom was good size with a double sliding doors cloest. Very roomy! I did not answer about dining cause I don't think there was any.

Loved, Loved, Loved It

The room/kitchen was beautifully decorated and outfitted. The grounds are stunning. On Site cafe with ocean view is moderately priced for breakfast and lunch and has a decent bar. Wait staff treated us like regulars after our first visit. The concierge we worked with has been doing this for 20+ years, great local knowledge of tours, restaurants, etc. Very helpful, knowledgeable and fun. WARNING: They do not guarantee ADA rooms booked through this site. We happened to call them to ask about facilities, found this out, and negotiated for an accessible room. The units are individually owned, so cannot normally be preassigned.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Check out the Kehei Cafe in Kehei--serve breakfast and lunch only. Local color, folks and food. Funky, fun and delicous. Also, Kamo Beach 1 in Kehei has a beach/ocean wheelchair for public use. I was able to go in the ocean for the first time in years.

Wonderful stay!

This was our second stay at the Kaanapali Villas. The grounds are kept beautifully, accommodations were perfect! Can't beat being right on the beach! The staff is very friendly and the site provides for relaxation. Will definitely return again on our next trip!

Hight quality but comfortable like home

Even though this was a condo, housekeeping still came and cleaned, changed the towels and made the beds. The employees were very nice and helpful. We had trouble with the air conditioner making a noise and the employees quickly fixed it. The beach walk was nice and the beach access was great. We felt like we had a little bit of luxury without paying the price.

Extremely Happy Couple

My husband and I got very lucky when we chose this hotel by the affordable price. We we arrived we were upgraded to a better room, which suprised us. Not only was the staff extremely pleasant but also very helpful when we asked for advise on activities and dining. And location could not have been more perfect. We will definitely stay here again when we come back.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Whether you want to save money dining or want to experience a high class romantic meal, the consierge at the hotel can reccommend more than what you can find on the internet. Everything the consierge helped us with, as well as his advice was spot on.

Can't wait to go back!

The grounds are beautifully maintained. The room was large and had a full kitchen - even a blender! There are 2 really nice pools with shallow areas for the kids. The beach in front of the hotel is perfect. There was ample free parking. We would definitely stay here again!
