Disappointed

We booked an one bedroom "ocean view" and was assigned unit C303 that has a building view and a glimpse of the ocean if standing and peering out the balcony. Don't be mislead by "ocean view", we were informed at check-in that "ocean view" means second level or higher and that units at Aston are graded 1 - 3 and ours is graded as "1" - meaning the "best". If it was the "best", I dreaded to know what "3" - the worst looks like." Unit C303 bedroom was located almost beside the garbage cans area, parking lot and elevator which was very noisy early in the morning and made our stay not very relaxing. The mattress was lumpy and sagging and the kitchen was ill equipped, with very poor quality kitchen knives and utensils, pots and pans. The overall feel of this unit was dusty, cluttered with faked plants, pictures, and outdated. The garden and overall appearance of the buildings are well-maintained. Good location to shopping and tours if those are your interest but far from any kind of good hiking trails. The weather and people in Maui are great! We will definitely return to Maui but not too sure about returning to Papakea and certainly not to unit C303!

If going for a Luau, choose a sit-down type of Luau instead a buffet-style; cost more but worth it. We went to one on Front Street, believe it was called "Feast on LeiLei". Also, go to Maui during the Whale Season! and go on a Whale Watch Tour - a great experience!

great vacation

This is or 3rd time at the Papakea. It's a condo style place but its quiet and relaxing. Rooms are clean and there are 2 pools, No fighting for lounge chairs. Shopping center across street for all your needs. Lahina is about 6 miles down the road. We watched the whales from the property. We will definitely return.
