Aston Kaanapali Shores

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful place, the rooms do need to be remodeled, the rooms have a smokey smell? We loved the ocean view and the kids lived the pool! very close to some really nice beaches where we spent most of our time.

Property is dated & the beach is non-existent. The staff is not empowered to make any decisions or resolve any issues. Orbitz lists the room with a "view" (listing has now been changed) when the only view was of a parking lot. Had to pay an additional $20/day (originally $30/day) to get the room expected. Must also pay an additional $20/day for an amenity fee whether you use any amenities or not. Wifi is part of the amenity fee despite being listed as "free". Add another $9 per day for parking. We could've stayed at a much nicer hotel at the price paid once the additional charges were added on. We will avoid all Aston hotels for all travels in the future.

We really liked the location, free towels and free DVD rental system. The Maui Jim scuba lesson offering was incredible and the best deal in Maui! The hotel itself was clean and the jungle pool was awesome. Our room (344) was pretty poor quality with dumpy appliances (super noisy dishwasher & and ice maker). It was a nice perk having W & D! The popcorn ceilings and Spectrum cable setup pretty poor quality. The fixes and details in bathroom were also pretty poor. The front desk did offer to upgrade our room based on our complaints, but unfortunately we didn't get message until day 5 of a 7-day trip. Not worth almost $300/night!

Beautiful ...nicer than expected. Wasn' t aware of daily resort fee ($20) and daily pkg fee ($9)

Beautiful spot....wasn't aware of daily resort and pkg fees

We absolutely loved our view from our room! The two bedroom was very comfortable and spacious.

The pool was a lot of fun for my kids. There were fountains and waterfalls. It was lighter decoratively at night. The garden area around the pool was so pretty with lots of greenery and koi pond. The beach here is not a swimming beach which was kind of disappointing. Very little sand and LOTS of rocks.

The staff were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. Having a full kitchen was great. Nice and clean, but definitely dated.

The service people were very polite and on the ball. Activities and things to do all the time. Well manicured property. One of the best vacations I've ever had.

Excellent location... Price right... Staff were A1.

Amazing people excellent facilities. In house Expedia sight seeing guides. Pools and ocean views amazing.

It took quite awhile for them to get our room ready for us to check in. We tried getting a room at 4:00 pm. The poolside restaurant service was very slow in the morning - 9:00 am the bathrooms need to be updated.

Great property, lots to do and super nice staff rooms are clean and roomy. This our 4th time here and we will be back next year.

difficult to turn shower on bcz of the knob. walls are too thin-can hear neighbors talking through walls. I killed a cockroach in the kitchen. I'm assuming upgraded rooms dont have these problems.

Very pleasant staff. A friendly relaxed environment. Good value for the price .

Aloha, The beach fronting our resort, like all beaches in an island/shore-line environment, is subject to change by way of changing ocean swell and weather conditions. The reality is that we simply cannot control the events of nature. The beaches in other resort areas on the island have experienced similar effects, with sand having been washed away quite severely at times. While this natural phenomenon does occur from time to time, what is also true is that the sand does wash back in as well…and at different times every year. We do have very swimmable beach located immediately adjacent to us and the snorkeling directly in front of our resort is some of the best on the island. Also, while admittedly slightly less convenient, there is a wide expanse of white sand beach a 5-minute drive (2 miles) from us in the south Ka’anapali Resort area. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your honest feedback and hope that you allow us the opportunity to welcome you home again in the future. Mahalo and warmest aloha
