The Whaler was excellent. Our condo was gorgeous and very well maintained. We were more than pleased. The staff has great attention to detail and cleanliness. The grills were cleaned daily. When a few kids started to throw a ball across the pool to eachother staff appeared and asked them to stop so they wouldn't disturb or hit others by accident. They complied. The undertow at the beach is treacherous. There was a drowning at Black Rock Beach while we were there. Their are red flags posted with warnings. All and all we had a delightful time!

I indicated poor for the items that were N/A. Beautiful grounds. Prior to arriving I was told renovations had been completed. However, some parts of the lawn were w/o grass and most planter boxes were without plants. Very friendly staff. Beautiful part of the beach. Studio garden view room still had great view of the ocean. Bathroom ceiling had an open space for dust to escape. Also requested 6 wash cloths daily b/c we showered often. We were only given 4 washcloths each time and it was never explained why we were not given 6. Wonderful stay. No regrets. By the way, the kitchen was well equipped, laundry facility on our floor was so helpful and LOVED only paying for parking, no resort fee. We would love to return.

The pictures you see of Aston at The Whaler don’t do this property justice. The gardens are beautifully manicured and the overall feeling is one of ‘Zen’. We stayed on level 3, in tower two, and used the stairs rather than the lift (elevator). In doing so, we were no more than twenty steps away from the white sands of Kaanapali Beach. We were welcomed with shell necklaces, and really appreciated the delivery of a complimentary pre-sliced pineapple to our condo. Thank you so much! Our apartment was very roomy and light, the kitchen well equipped, and the over-sized shower a God-send. The deck (lanai) was a good size, with two small tables and a lounger. We had a glorious view of the ocean front action, and also of the passing parade of holiday makers wandering into Whalers Village. It was easy to lose hours just soaking it all up. Housekeeping did a great job and replenished supplies daily. The $20 resort fee covers the cost of parking, which I thought represented good value for money. The pool area wasn’t as expansive or flashy as those in some of the other properties, but with crystal clear swimming in the ocean only steps from your door, why you’d choose to swim in chlorinated water is a mystery to me. Thank you so much to all the staff who made our stay so amazing. Aloha!

I had originally reserved a studio, but once I got there I asked to see a couple different types of rooms...a definite difference! Some are renovated (“premium”) and some have not-not to mention not all ocean views are equal. I opted/upgraded to a beautiful premium one bedroom and huge lanai with a full view of the beach, black rock and Molokai (tower 2, room 356). Lovely! Decorated beautifully, clean, renovated, very pleased! The people at the Whaler are very friendly and helpful as well. The pool area was pretty crowded, not large compared to other Kaanapali properties, but doable.

We hit the jackpot with the location as the Aston Whaler is located on Kaanapali Beach right next to Whaler's Village. We arrived early, but we weren't able to check-in yet. The front desk, however, stowed our luggage while we went food shopping. When we arrived back at the Whaler, it wasn't quite check-in time. Our room was ready, so they let us check in anyway. The bellman brought our luggage to our car to unload groceries and escorted my wife and daughter to the room. During our stay, most of the hotel staff were helpful. There was one occasion, however, when it wasn't the case. I wasn't familiar with the towel policy, so I took my used towel to the front desk. The male front desk clerk motioned me to go around the corner without saying a word. I did as he asked and just stood there because I didn't really know what I was supposed to do. I could tell he was annoyed. He stopped doing "nothing" and showed me where to put the towels and handed me a towel card. I was put off by that experience. Other than that, everyone else was super helpful. Our room number as 1016. It's a studio and was the perfect size for me, wife, and 10 yr old daughter. We were in the north tower (tower 1) and our room was facing black rock. The view was fantastic. I read on travel adviser to request a room in tower 1 above the 7th floor. The Aston Whaler was only too kind to accommodate. The pool area looks small, but it accommodated all the guests who were there. There were plenty of chairs, and there was never a time I couldn't find seating. I love that they have cold water and ice tea available for all. In the morning, they even have coffee poolside. I thought it was a very nice touch. The food on Maui is very expensive. For this reason, we stayed at the Whaler as every room has a full kitchen. We ate mainly breakfast there, but we also had lots of snacks: chips, ramen, fresh poke ready for our consumption. Overall, a wonderful experience. We'll definitely be back!

Fun, relaxing, and I forgot what else to say.

It is relaxing place with many fun things to do. From the beach to the spa. To the coy feeding and pool. It is a good place for the family. Though it can rain, and spa not as hot. Have a good time at The Whaler

Depends on what you like...

Here’s the thing about the Aston at the Whaler: the room was nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. So there’s nothing wrong with the hotel, per se; my issue is with the endless droves of tourists that fill the very small beach, the innumerable children running around the (tiny) pool like insects, the lack of drink or food service poolside or anywhere else on the property, and the commercialized feel that pervades the tourist trap that is Kaanapali. By all means, if you traveled to Hawaii just to feel like you are in a Florida resort with name brand store shopping then go ahead - you will be very happy here. But if you want some semblance of an authentic Hawaii experience, then STAY AWAY at all costs. Kaanapali is a hellhole which we will never return to - we spent our entire time escaping to Lahaina, and we couldn’t be happier that we discovered such a cute beach town filled with many locals and great food.
