Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff is what makes this hotel shine. Friendly, so helpful and nice. Did not meet an unhappy person the entire 2 weeks. They went out of their way to anticipate our needs. Property does not have a bar or restaurant but there are lots within walking distance along with shops and activities. You can snorkle right from the beach of the hotel as well as at Black Rock!

Very large floor plan. Walk right on to one of the best beaches in the world. The property is meticulously groomed and cleaned. The staff is very attentive.

Nice condo suite with full kitchen, daily service but no restaurants.

A security pool man made my whole vacation to the point of me having minor seizures. The guard started talking about his religion and how Abortions are bad and should not happen. He said there would be a child kicking and moving and how could you do that. Wouldn't stop. Told the management. Security chief wrote a report that I have a brain tumor and a headache. I told him I have a brain injury and stress causes me Seizures. When told about the seizures he wanted to talk to my wife. Took her in by herself to question her. Friends at the pool every summer calls him a cop. The front hotel management lied to me. Didn't use your company for the report. Asked for the room to be comped since our vacation was horrible. The management stated that we needed to notify you, so we are following through. From the stress of the pool person telling me his opinion about abortion, my brain overworked itself to the point of my passing out on the steps going in from the pool to the hotel. I have loose wiring that malfunctions due to stress and my medications assist me, but because the incident caused me excessive stress, my body gave out. My wife found me on the stairs. The hotel does not appear to have an accurate description of the incident, even though we were both interviewed. We are asking for you to contact the hotel, so reimbursement arrangement can be made to use asap.

Great location. Staff was amazing. Definitely will go back.

The Whaler did an excellent job of accommodations on a beautiful beach. We walked to snorkeling, walked to dinners, sunsets and shopping. Plenty of transport available for excursions or other parts of the island.

Definitely visit again in coupe of years. Nice location, friendly crew and very clean place.

This was the perfect place for our family of 3. We loved the kitchen and the location on the beach. The fact that the cleaning staff cleans the kitchen every day--Amazing! Great, convenient parking. Great snorkeling right out the door. And the views were incredible.

This was a pre-planned Vacation for my wife and I. My wife passed before the date of the vacation. I went because I believed she would have wanted me to. This is a lovely place and very peaceful. As much as I missed my wife, I was able to relax and think about how much she would have enjoyed this Resort. Everything about it would have made her so happy. Beautiful view of the beach, the ocean, the surrounding landscape and mountains just gave me the opportunity to relax and think about of the good times we shared together in places like this.

Fabulous location right on the beach. Room had a good view and didn't smell moldy. It would have been good to know when we checked in that the room we had was on the same side that they were doing major construction and that it started at 7:00 AM. Also couldn't keep the sliding door open because the kitchen exhaust gases from the barbecue at the restaurant next door kept coming into the room.

Great location! Place was under construction but overall was ok otherwise. Noise is 9-5 M-F but otherwise not too disruptive. Would stay again.

We stayed for a week in a studio with a king bed and a pull-out sofa bed. There is a full kitchen which is very convenient and also a balcony. We could see the ocean from the balcony. The apartment is beautifully decorated. Bed is comfortable. Pull-out sofa bed is not very good, but my kids are OK with it. Everything is clean. The hotel is right on Kaanapali beach and next door to the Whalers Village mall. There are stores, restaurants, a coffee shop, ice cream shop etc. in the mall. Great place for a family vacation. We saw sea turtles at the Black Rock!

Great hotel!..our room was a suite with a partial-ocean view, we were pleasantly surprised that it was pretty much a full ocean view (from the 6th floor). The suite had a small but fully functional kitchen (full size refrigerator, dishwasher, range, microwave) and had silverware and plates, bowls. It also had a walk-in closet attached to the bathroom. All these bonuses made it feel much more like we were staying in our own little home vs a hotel room. We really enjoyed our stay here, and will likely make this our hotel of choice while in Maui!

Walk beach, good food and shopping !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect location. So many shops and restaurants that you can walk to. Hotel and staff were great. Rooms were very well equipped. A little tricky with ocean view studios the view really varies. Request an inner courtyard room. Outer courtyard in building two faces the mall construction.

Great place to stay and close to lots of activities

The best place to get a peaceful and relaxing vacation. You have activities or you can just lounge around at the beach front property. The one thing you must do is the Haleakala sunrise enough said you cant go wrong with Hawaii.

Simply- just perfect ! First trip to Maui and can't wait to return. Great hotel/condo perfect location was just beautiful, the entire island!

Our second time at the Whaler, a great location with all the amenities needed for a condo, we will stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. we traveled with kids, so the full-kitchen was extremely useful. We had our breakfast, lunches ready in our studio which saved us a lot of time and money. The location is excellent, because it's right next to the Whaler's Village where there are a lot of food and ice-cream options. We went there most of the nights. The hotel is on a very nice sandy beach and just 10 minutes walk to the Black Rock which is a very famous snorkeling spot. The hotel is 10 minutes by car to Lahaina where there are numerous restaurants and supermarkets (Safeway, CVS, etc) The only downside of the hotel is that the pool is very small. Some days it got very tight with space in the pool. And There is no kids pool
