I have stayed here before, many years ago. I was expecting the same excellent room as last time. Lobby, grounds, pool are still excellent. I think my room was overpriced for its present condition.
Aston Kaanapali Shores was perfectly located to beaches, snorkeling, stores, golf and charter activities! Comfy bed and really nice staff! It was the perfect place to spend our 25 year anniversary!
We stayed here in February 2015 & loved it. This year 2017 we went back & the beech was no longer there?? We loved the hotel itself but we like to sit on the beech not at a pool. So we had to travel to get to one.
The facilities were nice, very friendly staff, restaurant was awesome. The bed ruined the vacation. It's was old, sagging, and very hard.
We had nice time just walking around. Staff are very friendly, the hotel is very clean.
WE Arrived late, and there was no one to help us with our bags. They would not lend us a hotel luggage cart. T they just gave us an airport style luggage cart.. It could not fit golf bag on it. We had to make 2 trips. The room smelled of Bug Spray or something chemical. There were very loud noises outside. tAll the appliances were old and noisy.
My wife and I came to Maui for our 40th anniversary and were loolooking to make our trip memorable. Aston Kaanapali Shores did not dissapoint. Couldn't ask for friendlier stafO and it was very affordable. Our room was always clean and well stocked. Only downfall was that there isn't much of a Beach. Other than that our stay was great.
The room was spacious and clean. Our view wasn't the best (overlooking the parking lot), but we still could see the mountain. The bed was not that comfortable, I kept on sinking down while sleeping. The tile was cracked in our room. There was loud construction noise every morning near our room, so that was annoying when you'll trying to sleep in. The pool area was nice though.
There is NO beach at this property. It is also impossible to walk either North or South for any distance on the beach without cutting through or going around (by street) other properties. Hurricanes in the 80's claimed what beach this property had. One cannot safely swim in the ocean from this property. We drove to a park South of the property & walked the beach from there to Black Rock & beyond. Property is directly across the street from Snorkel Bob's, grocery store, & other shopping. ABC store, fish market & farmer's market are also within walking distance. Restaurant food was good although happy hour nachos use "cheese sauce" like what you see at movie theaters rather than real cheese which is a bit odd. The entertainment was excellent: one night was a hula show another was a singer/guitarist in the restaurant. There are 2 hot tubs and 2 pools. We could see whales from our lanai & from the pool deck. Yoga class is offered MWF mornings. Lei making and hula classes are also offered. Carpet in the room felt weird, almost sticky like old Tupperware, one lampshade had holes in it, the ice dispenser jammed regularly and dumped ice all over the floor, appliances all had minor issues otherwise the room was fine. Staff were all helpful and pleasant. The parking ticket machine was broken for the first few days & I never did understand why we were required to take a ticket even though we had a parking pass taped to the windshield. Not recommended for those who love to walk beach.
Beautiful grounds, Amazing views from the balconies. Usually you get offered a garden view room or a pool view or an ocean view we got all three!!!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
Really nice 1 bedroom condo with a great view to watch the pool and garden. Easy access to our room from parking and great staff taking care of you. Really enjoyed ourselves.
This Hotel offers beautiful grounds and very clean and comfortable rooms. We had a wonderful "garden view which also had a view of the ocean. Wonderful vegetation, waterfall, and other water features. Two pools and hot tubs, one for the adults only. We had a one bedroom suite with full kitchen. It was absolutely wonderful. The staff is very attentive and friendly. There is also a very nice restaurant open for all three meals and reasonably priced for the area. We loved it and would definitely stay there again.
This hotel was great and worked for our vacation. The reason that I couldn't rate the facilities higher is due to the beach erosion. We expected to have a nice beach for our kids to play based on the photos. We were disappointed to find it almost completely gone and very close to the hotel wall.
If you're from outside the 808, this hotel is more in keeping with island life than a huge mega box hotel. This hotel has simple yet pleasing grounds, ample lounge chairs, an adult centric pool, and a nice clean, fun family pool. It has one restaurant and the food is again, simple and good. It's close to great golf, is right on the beach, has a check out booth for all beach fun stuff including great towels. There's shuffle board, which whether you play by the rules or make up your own..fun. The room is great, clean and the bed is cozy. It would be nice if the bar was open past nine but, again, there's a store right across the street and you can easily get your own evening beverage bling. Inside the 808, this is a cozy get away that allows you to enjoy why you live in Hawai'i.
When I booked it, I did read reviews of how dated this hotel was and unfortunately it was all true. When we originally checked into our room, we were not happy at ALL. We didn't know we would be facing a parking lot not to mention that the room we stayed in was cold, dreary and very dated. We definitely didn't feel like we were in Hawaii. This was such a disappointment that my husband and I decided to change rooms. Definitely not what was pictured when I booked it. When we requested to change, you would have thought that maybe it would be an even exchange to change rooms but we ended up paying $200 extra. Very disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the location was great, close to everything but to be honest, this hotel is really dated. The hotel is well maintained, clean and the staff is ok but we were not impressed at all. Also be aware that there may be times where the beach is gone....yes gone!
We were just staying overnight after a wedding in the area so didn't have much time to enjoy the accommodations beyond our studio room. The property seemed well maintained. I was surprised to find additional charges added to our bill at check-out. I don't recall seeing anything mentioned when I made and paid for the reservation through Orbitz, but I do see on the receipt that it was a "deposit". In any case, it was a brief but nice stay. I would consider staying a this property again. Sincerely, Ronald Kobata
We've stayed here twice before and enjoy the facilities. Conveniently located and friendly staff.
Relaxed and at peace. Enjoyed hula dancers and breakfast at restaurant.
Excellent Hotel Have rooms with washer dryer, kitchen Great place Only downside is the beach is small and rocky
The hotel was very clean and the staff was super friendly. They also had presentations every morning for tourists on the area and nearby attractions. They also held a raffle for guests. One of the best places we've ever stayed at. Loved it!
