We were looking for a place on Kaanapali Beach and we chose the Aston at the Whaler. It was a perfect choice for our family of four. The unit was spacious, remodeled and a corner unit with two bathrooms. If you need the extra space and two bathrooms I would highly recommend these units. The grounds are immaculate and the facilities were fine. We split our Maui trip up with half our stay here and the other half in Wailea at a resort. We wanted to experience both ends of the island and this fit the bill for our stay on Kaanapali. The only thing I would caution is the beach right in front of the buildings are eroding, so you cannot use the beach right in front. Not a problem for us as we used the complimentary beach chairs and moved our location down towards black rock. The beach chairs are complimentary but the loungers are for rent. The fitness facilities were perfect, small area but had all the right equipment. Highly recommend these units if you need the space, plan to perhaps cook yourself, or just don’t need the big resort feel. We had no issues getting seats at the pool unlike like some resorts. Just don’t expect much other then a pool and lounge chairs. Oh and we had a great view of the beach from our unit in building two.
We stayed in a one bedroom ocean view unit. It was clean and comfy and the kitchen facilities were great. The Staff was friendly and the daily housekeeping was very good. My only complaint was that there is insufficient underground parking, especially in the evening so one has to go back and park in the parking lot which is not that close to the entrance.
I will stay there again
We are staying in room Whaler 1119. It is the perfect room for us. It is quiet, and the view is great. It is very roomy for just the two of us. The traffic is very moderate at this facility. It is much different than the crowd in Lahaina. It's awesome when a vacation is peaceful. Aston provided a daily housekeeping service. The staff did a great job. It was much appreciated.
Staff so friendly! Amazing location
1 bedroom ocean view is amazing. It's nice to have a full-size fridge/microwave, toaster, coffee pot, etc so you can pick up a few groceries & eat in the room for at least one meal a day. Next time I would book one facing the courtyard or the tower closest to black rock. The tower adjacent to the whalers shopping has smoke blowing toward the tower beginning about 2pm (Hula Grill & Leilani's). For me I mostly spent mornings on the lanai and doors shut for A/C, so smoke didn't bother me much. The noise didn't bother me on the 9th floor, but I imagine lower floors the air conditioning noises, etc. from the restaurants/mall would be a bit bothersome. Staff here is super friendly and helpful. Grounds are very well maintained.
We have stayed here twice before and were pleasantly surprised that it had been renovated since our last stay. Our room this time had an amazing view of the ocean and the courtyard. It was wonderful sleeping with the doors open listening to the waves. The grounds are immaculate. the accommodations were very neat and clean. The staff were extremely friendly. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and the hotel gave us a bottle of wine and fresh fruit. They really went above and beyond.
