Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

I was here for a conference that was next door. I thought because it was less expensive I was getting a less than 4 star hotel- but it was more than I could have asked for. Ocean view, full kitchen, walk in closet, immediate beach access and away from the hustle and bustle- but close enough to shops and the conference area I was never hungry or late! There was immediate access to the water that was perfect for snorkeling in the morning before the conference. If I am ever back in Kaanapali area I will definantly stay here.

This is a clean resort with a great location on the beach. The pool can be a little crowded and it'd be nice if you weren't nickel and dimed for everything around the pool area, but the beach cannot be beat. Also very close to the Black Rock snorkel area, which is vivid and full of underwater life. Everyone was friendly on the staff. I would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed in room 1214 in Tower 1 and enjoyed it very much. The room had an upgraded kitchen and the view from the Lanai was perfect. We could see Black Rock and several golf courses. The view of Molaki was awesome. The room was furnished very well with a sleeper sofa, a swivel rocker, a very nice dining area and a nice little desk. The king bed was comfortable. The maid servise was great. Room was always cleaned when we returned from our daily trips around Maui.

Our first trip to Hawaii for our family. Went for our daughters Wedding. We loved the Whaler and would stay there again in a heart beat. We had the 1BR 2 bath and it was perfect for the four of us. Great view and even thou we were over the Whalers Village we didn't mind. In fact we enjoyed the activity and we had no noise issues. Our condo was serviced everyday and we had everything we needed. Beautiful place and great location. Can walk to shopping and restaurants just next door. We all can not wait to go back !!!

There are places to riding boards with very nice waves, there are places of still water to swim, and really great snorkeling near the Black Rock

The Aston at the Whaler is an excellent hotel with condos that have fully equipped kitchens. Restaurants are nearby and Kaanapali beach is the place to visit in Maui. Black Rock is only a five minute walk down the beach and you can easily find turtles, rays, and a variety of reef fish when scuba diving. We've stayed at a larger and nicer resort on Kaanapali before and the The Whaler is an excellent value for your money.

Great location on the beach between the Whaler Village and Black Rock. Garden view worked well for as we could see the ocean easily. Loved the beach towel cards - never had to worry about drying our towels or lugging them around. You don't have to bring your own towels unless you need extras. Prompt service received from front desk. Internet worked well the majority of the time. Loved having a kitchen. They even granted access to the facilities for the remainder of the day following checkout since we had a really late flight and even stored our bags for us after checkout. Overall great value.
