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.
Policies and fees

The hotel will undergo exterior renovations from 2 Sept to 2 Nov 2014, which will include installing new roofing on the Dolphin and Emerald Buildings and a spalling project on the Aloha Tower.

First time to Maui

The room we had smelled bad when we opened the door - probably due to the carpet. Mosquitoes and gnats were bad - also had some roaches. The fee for parking and amenities was something we never have to pay at other places we have stayed in Hawaii.

Xmas Vacation To Paradise

We have stayed at this resort before and once again it was GREAT!!! Location is perfect. The snorkeling right outside the resort was crystal clear. No need to book a separate trip or go anywhere else. The Castaway café has great food at a fair price. The rooms was nicely updated and the staff friendly as always.. We will not stay anywhere but MKV.. See ya next year.....

Great for family getaway

The hotel location was excellent. I was a bit dissapointed in that the room had dust, as if it had not been used for a while and it was not cleaned prior to my arrival, but since I got a deal, I overlooked that. The beaches around here were fabolous for kids. I drove around other parts of the island and was pleased with my selection.

satisfied with a few minor issues

PRO: It's a suite with all kitchen utensils, microwave oven, frig, etc... queen beds. half ocean view, half garden view. Value is OK for the price. CON: there is a slight odor in entrance on the first day. The desk has exposed nails and cut our legs.

Nice Hawaiian Vacation

Room was nice, but pullout bed was non-functional, replaced with air mattress which had a hole in it. Also, issues with ants... Staff was very friendly especially daily cleaner. We were there during tropical depression Flossie - a lot of water came in, window walls need to be sealed/caulked.
