Good place to stay

Very good location. Right on great beach. Lot of options to walk around specially during evening. We liked the kitchen. Rooms were clean. We got our room at 4.15. Check-in time is 4PM. We reached there before 3 and finally got our room at 4.15 only. The view is amazing from some rooms, but was just ok from our 6th floor studio. It really depends on floor and the side you are staying. Also, it would be great to have a sofa bed in studio.

Great Property On Ka'anapali Beach

Our experience at The Aston At The Whaler On Ka'anapali Beach was excellent. Our family group booked 4 units at 3 different times. 2 - 1 bedroom 2 bath ocean view units and 2 - Studio garden view units. All were as advertised and well appointed and equipped. Each with full kitchens and lots of room to move around. The full kitchens allowed our group to cook our own breakfast, prepare our lunches for our outings, and dinners on the nights we were not dining out. This saved many $s. The Aston At The Whaler On Ka'anapali Beach also has several BBQs that were in great working order. On 3 of the nights our group of 9 BBQed steak and enjoyed the sunset at Ka'anapali Beach while we ate. Spectacular! The location of The Aston At The Whaler On Ka'anapali Beach is simply wonderful. World class beach, beautiful walkway along the beach, and walking access to excellent shopping and dining nearby. Also, just a short walk to Black Rock where we enjoyed the sunset torch lighting, great snorkeling, and jumping off into the ocean. We saw many, many fish and swam with turtles on several days! We requested that our 4 units be in the same building and on the same floor. A significant request considering we booked at three different times and our stay was over Christmas. The Staff made sure we were all in the same building and on the same floor. This enhanced our stay greatly. The Staff was extremely courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful every time we had contact. We will stay at The Aston At The Whaler On Ka'anapali Beach on future trips to Maui and would reccomend The Aston At The Whaler On Ka'anapali Beach to all!

Not getting better

We've been staying at the Whaler on a regular basis for 30 years. That history hasn't provided any benefits. We ask for certain considerations relative to our room. Those requests are never granted. The location of the hotel is near perfect. But the quality of the rooms varies. This year, the overall room was dated and state of repair was marginal. In short, they don't appear to be able to enforce any standard with the individual owners. Front desk staff was not particularly friendly. Not sure if I'll return.

Fabulous beach experience.

Despite a rocky start (room not ready), it was quite comfortable & location was great. Staff seemed helpful. Would return.

Wonderful Location on Popular Beach

Overall, our stay at The Whaler was wonderful. We have stayed here before and again we appreciated its central location and quiet rooms. we stayed in a Studio Garden View room and, to our surprise, we still had a great view of the ocean. My only complaints about the room were that the bed was extremely hard and bouncey, the DVD player did not work properly with the television, and the hair dryer was burned out. Besides these minor glitches, we had a very pleasant stay. Checking in and out was a breeze, parking is convenient, and our room was cleaned daily which was a nice plus.

great location, nice place

location is one of best on island. just next to whaler village. condos are very nice and clean. paid an upgrade for an ocean view but got stock on 6 floor with view of big trees (blocking ocean view) and whaler village air conditioning system. it was loud and disappointing. after complaining for 3 days they finally moved us to a great room and the rest of the trip was a dream! i would come back again but i would be care to ensure i have a room with a nice view.

family girls' trip

We had 4 female family members staying in an ocean view one bedroom suite. The size was very spacious and the balcony was perfect. We did go grocery shopping at the nearby safeway, but you do need a car or use the public transportation to get around - it's a couple of miles away. I was disappointed that there werent any eating or drinking establishments onsite, and had to seek out a bar at the next resort over. Each staff member I interacted with was friendly and helpful.

Great location

This is a great place to visit. I do wish the rooms had wifi! But other then that is was clean, quiet and had great lanai which we really enjoyed. I would recommend to others and will probably return as well.
