    Wonderful anniversary in Maui

    This condo hotel is wonderful. It was just made for us. It is not crowded, not noisy, mostly couples, in a good location, with easy parking. We booked just before we fly there and we had a wonderful condo. Reception has Aloha sprit staff with smiley faces. We enjoyed the peace and wonderful views from the condo, we even watch the whales many times which was wonderful. The condo was very clean, we had everything we need in the kitchen, housekeepers was cleaning well everyday. Just next the hotel, there is a shopping center and restaurant. You won’t even need a car. Mahalo from Italy Whalers :-) Aloha!

    Marvelous location, views and service

    Spent five nights in Oceanfront unit 402 North and everything was wonderful. Gigantic balcony gives sweeping views to Lanai and Molokai/Black Rock with fabulous sunsets. Underground parking below building was tight but super convenient. All staff was helpful and friendly with our special needs as my 85 yr old mother needed help with scooter, washroom aids, etc. Beds were comfy and furniture good, TV controls a bit finicky and hard to work though. Overall a great and memorable experience, easy stroll to Whalers Village shops and restaurants. Pricey but worth it.

    Great Location and an Enjoyable Stay

    I researched various accommodation options and found The Whaler to be one of the better priced. Accommodation is expensive and this was at our 'middle of the road' price point. Knowing what we could be paying at the high end, meant my expectations were managed. I knew the quality of our condo such as the fit out and amenities were really at the mercy of the owner. I'd read that the pool area was small and it wouldn't be like one of the bigger resorts with restaurants, swim up bars etc. All that was true but turns out we didn't miss any of that. The grounds are well maintained. The pool area was busy but we always found two loungers. I noticed that staff would patrol and remove towels from unattended loungers so lounger hoggers were well managed. It was off season so not too many kids which is what we prefer not being parents. Our condo was in Tower 1 with an ocean view which was beautiful. The decor was more practical than luxurious but the bed was comfy and we had lots of space. Air con was good. Laundry facilities were very welcome although there isn't really anywhere for a clothes line and you aren't allowed to put clothing out on the balcony to dry in the sunshine. We managed by hanging items in the walk in wardrobe and shower curtain rail. I had done some online shopping prior to our visit and all items were there ready for me to collect. Staff were friendly although we didn't really need much help. Beautiful location right on the beach. Proximity to Whaler Village meant there were lots of food and drink options. We also drove to Times Supermarket so dined in a few times. We didn't cook as such but had salads and 'pre prepped' food from the supermarket. I'd recommend staying here. I'm sure it's kid friendly but there isn't much for kids although the beach is probably enough!

    HAWAII at its best

    The Aston Whaler is a wonderful facility. Location, amenities, and the ocean. What else can you say. We have been there 9 times over the years and are never disappointed. We recommend this to anyone who is planning a trip to Maui.

    Smack dab in the middle of the best part of Hawaii

    What a wonderful place to stay. Fantastic value for being center stage in best part of the Utopic Islands. We booked a 2 bath one Bed condo, one back from the front on the outer Village side, 4 floors up. The place was extremely well set-up for all our needs.The decorations were dated, but the so was the nightly price, we felt it was by far the best "value" we've gotten on a vrbo in years. We love to cook local fare and the condo kitchen was perfect and well stocked, the facilities grills are next to the beach & were well cared for, clean and convenient. The Whaler staff was phenomenal. The Ocean views mesmerizing...Spectacular sunsets from our own deck, the roll of the surf was the perfect music to lull us to sleep each night and wake us each morning. We will be back.
