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.
2 adult pools and a children's pool
Restaurants: Including Castaway Cafe
Wi-Fi (fees may apply)
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.

This was my second stay at the Aston Maui. It was more amazing than the first. The staff is great and they remebered me from my last stay and upgraded my room to an ocean view. This is a great place if you want the resort feel but a condo with
a kitchen. Best beach in Maui and nicest people towards tourists are on the west side.

Short walk from hotel
I go to Maui for the vegtation. Go to the fruit stands and try some pinapple and coconut water, it will change your life.
The unit was quite spacious which we enjoyed, and it was clean. The bath was oversized and easy for two people to work within. This was a rather laid-back resort which we liked and we appreciated the wireless network although it was very, very
slow. We had difficulty in locating our unit since we arrived late at night. If you arrive at night ask the night clerk to be more specific as to the unit location within the building. It was conveniently located to area points of interest. There was only one small beach cafe on site, and we would have appreciated perhaps another restaurant. Overall, we felt it was a pretty good buy. We based our selection on comments from former guests.

Short drive from hotel
The Whalers Village is a great place to shop and dine.
We arrived late and checked out early, but there was always someone at the front desk ready to take care of us. The first time we stayed there they even gave us a box of chocolates and some bottled water. Although they didn't offer that the
second time, we still enjoyed the great service, clean room, great location, and even the restaurant was good.
The hotel is located right on the beach in a great location. It was very close to Lahaina and walking distance to Whalers Village. The amenities were very poor. The cafe was open from 7:30am to 7:00pm and was actually closed on Friday evening for
a private event. Additionally, there is no health club.
Arrangements made through cheap tickets. Somehow reservation at the Aston was not received at the time of arrival. Staff was not very courteous. When following up the next day on reservations, again staff not courteous. Will not make
reservations there again.
