Every unit is oceanfront, staff is friendly, close to market and parking is free!

I liked the room and the ocean view. Continental breakfast could have been a plus that we missed.

Amazing service. Lady who checked us in( Sorry I forgot your name) was very friendly and helpful.

Great resort. Rooms were spacious with great view of the ocean. Kitchen was nice and we were able to stock our room with groceries and make a lot of our own meals. Staff was polite and always answered any questions we had.

Liked having full kitchen and washer/dryer. No other properties will be this close to the beach

The bed was HARD as a rock. The pool is too small & the resort has limited activities! Front desk wasn't too helpful & employees wasn't pleasant! There're much better resorts around with more activities & better price. This property should be a Hotel not a resort! This Hotel is old and needs a major upgrade.

Rooms, view, proximity to beach just as good as the more expensive bigger resort condos...plus it's quieter and more relaxing here...will stay here again...loved it

The Aston Mahana at Kaanapali was an overall all good experience. The lobby, pool area, beach access, parking lot, and hotel grounds were all well kept and the views were stunning. The hotel staff and the Expedia Expert Concierge in the lobby was a great addition... Don't skip the first morning after you check in "Island Orientation", I won a $150 road to Hana tour in the raffle! The orientation was just a lay of the land and explanations of recommended activities but the Expedia rep was fun and informative. Our stay of 10 nights was dampened only by the quality of the room itself (which was rectified after 2 nights). We were slightly dissatisfied at the upkeep of the room itself. Certain things were showing a state of wear that I was not expecting or used to in a hotel. I learned from an "owner" just what the Aston part of the name meant in that the room I was staying in and any room rented out through larger sites like Orbitz and such are owned by a person and that Aston rents out the rooms and "services" them (replaces linens and towels, cleaning, toiletries etc.) This means the rooms can very GREATLY based on the amount of effort put into them by the actual owner of the room. There are 3 classes of room and we apparently booked a C class room which got us a near original state room. We expressed our concern to the desk and were upgraded to a class B room which met our expectations with its renovated interior and better presentation. Other than that it was a great stay.

The hotel is very nice. Had grills to use with tables to eat at outside. The bed was extremely comfortable and our balcony was the closest I have ever stayed to the beach waves. Room had all the necessities and was great. Parking was never an issue even coming back late at night. Pool wasn't over crowded like I would imagine at the larger hotels. There was construction outside the building but it was never an issue because they would start when we would explore the island so we rarely saw the workers. Was a very pleasant vacation.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The hotel is in a very good location, it was convenient to buy grocery from the nearby Times market and cook in the kitchen. The ocean view was unbeatable. Strongly recommend!

Not everything perfect but the patio view to ocean makes up all, very serene view to pacific from living room & bed room. Full size kitchen makes stay it like home.

My first time in Maui and this hotel is my top choice. Clean room, update kitchen and absolutely breathtaking view.

excellent stay, bed and pillows could be little better,just a suggestion otherwise no complain

It had an amazing view and was extremely clean. The staff was attentive and courteous. I would stay there again and recommend this Hotel to my friends.

staff was nice ,hotel fine, needs to reactive coffee bar in lobby ( no snacks/ food available w/o driving to store.)Smokers are forced into tiny clostrophobic area - even cars in their lot can belch exhast.. but can't smoke in open air parking lot. political correctness gone crazy.

Not so easy to find, but once we found it were very pleased with everything the hotel offered. Nice rooms, full sized stove and refrigerator, comfy bed and awesome views. We slept with the lanai door open (screen door closed) and were lulled to sleep by the gentle waves. Lovely. Well located with restaurants close by, and only a few minutes from Lahaina.

Coming into the hotel we were in the middle of a storm. We were wet and tired. There was no advice on what to do in Maui when it rains when we asked the front desk. The front desk neglected to mention that there was a supermarket 400 meters away, where we could get umbrellas, especially since they had none to offer. The room was big and had the full kitchen we booked, and a washer and dryer. The fold out couch had a thin 3 inch spring mattress that had no support. We thought of sleeping on the floor, but it was covered in really smelly shag carpet. Beyond that there was a small pool, coral covered beach that my son couldnt swim into without getting cut up. There were no amenities to offer, no restaurant, not even a little trinket table. The view of the ocean was great and a big tease since we would have to wake up and drive to a swimable beach everyday. There were anouncements that pest control is an ongoing battle, so we hustled to clean up every crumb after ourselves to keep away the critters. And two days into our stay the power went out. There was no hot water, no air conditioner, no lights or anything. We had to move our food to the staff fridge so it wouldn't spoil and were forced to eat out for the next 24 hrs. There were no appologies or extended curtosies. Perhaps if they offered coffee and fruit in the morning as a gesture, that would have gone a long way. We did get two glow sticks for light, that my son loved to play with. Telling our 5 year old that he had to wait until we drove somewhere to get food was not a great way to spend our vacation. The power did come back on after two days and one night, and after some heavy handed arm twisting from my husband the hotel agreed to refund one night. I would not stay in this hotel again, my family and I need a full kitchen, air conditioning, and a swimable beach. We found that the Royal Lahana had great amenities, the best beach, and super helpful staff. That's where we spent most of our time in the end with our friends. And IF we go back, the Aston will not be our accommodations.

Aloha and mahalo for your comments, the Mahana is a beautiful property just steps from the beach where we offer 100 % oceanfront views from every unit as well as the home away from home convenience of fully equipped kitchens. Our pool deck, with jet spa and complimentary grills, is great for relaxing and taking in those views. While we don't have a restaurant and the hustle bustle of larger resorts, we are a short walk or drive from many dining and shopping options should you be able to tear yourself away from the views. Mahalo.
