It was better than expected, the room was wonderful and location perfect
It's our first condo stay and we really enjoyed the fully-equipped kitchen and lots of extra space of a studio unit. They're all decorated differently; ours had clean and simple Hawaiian decor. The lanai was wide and the wide double doors completely slid open for a lot of fresh air and outside, in. They had a large walk-in closet, ironing stuff, and books. The housekeeper did occasional lite kitchen tidy-up. Just a basic pool, but we did our swimming in the ocean. A beach hut out front can rent you all the stuff you need, plus show you how the crushed leaves of a plant right there works best to keep your snorkel mask unfogged. They did put coffee out by the pool in the morning. Black Rock and its great snorkeling were only a short walk down the beach. We were right in between 3 large hotels which had the nice drinking and dining facilities you want, and basic shopping needs are met by Whalers Village next door. Parking garage is downstairs; expensive but convenient; we preferred the outdoors overflow (employees') lot. To relax in the evening, I really liked the seats scattered around the casual grounds of the Kaanapali Beach Hotel right next door. (For a Kaanapali Beach regular hotel, that would have been my top choice.) Wish I could have been on a shadier side of the building, but we didn't ask for a change. We were in Room 961 in Tower 2, on the outside facing south-ish and, since we stayed during the winter holidays (which really upped the room rates) our lanai was in sun from sunrise to sunset. (Probably a plus for most folks, though, and it did let us dry our water gear more discreetly.) That said, the view was fantastic, from mountains to the east and out to sea and the island of Lana'i, unblocked by nearby buildings. Even though we overlooked Whalers Village, being on the 9th floor the only sound was a tolerable humming during the night from some of their equipment, blending with the sounds of the surf.
A great beach in front , and a nice town Lahaina only 10 minutes drive away. The condo is well equipped.
Bed is a bit too soft. Cleaning ladies a bit lax.
We were very pleased with the view and location being right next to Whaler's Village and also were very pleasantly surprised by the condition and overall quality of the room. I don't know if all of the units are as nice as ours, but we had no complaints. Our room was booked as an Ocean View room and we had a fabulous view from the living room, bedrooms and balcony. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, bringing family next time.
The stunning beach right in front of the property Very prompt attention to faulty safe
The check in should say the parking is not included in the tariff
Our Oceanside view was amazing. Very clean, daily cleaning service, complimentary fresh pineapple plate, bottled water and shopping bag delivered to our room, close to Whaler's Village and nice restaurants. The paved walkway by the ocean was really beautiful to walk day or evening. We loved the consierre Povi(not sure of spelling). She was wonderful with great advise about excursions and activities. We rented a car(at the advise of friends back home) but didn't need it. We took the bus to Lahaina for dinner and site seeing. Lovely town. It was a great place to stay. Highly recommend it for your stay in Maui.
Nothing really. We had to pay daily parking of our car.
Before you check in they will make you agree to paying an extra $30/night for “amenities.“ If we had known this we would have chosen a different hotel.
Pool, room was large and very comfortable, beautiful views from lanai.
Had some small ants in my cereal. Had to put box in fridge.
Did not realize that we were booking an apartment type set up, was marketed as Hotel, which it is not.
We got put in a rear room even tho we booked ocean view. The next day went to reception and they were happy to move as to a deluxe room at an extra $90 a day, we did it but then later checked the booking.com website and it was only an extra $20 to stay in deluxe room for the period we were there and got told we should of changed it through booking.com not direct. Wrote to manager Richard, but never got a response.
Given choice, Tower2 is better than Tower1 re western sun.
Located right next to Whalers Shopping Village and on the beach path forvheaps of restaurants. $2 shuttle bus stops at Village and goes to Lahaina and Marina. Awesome kitchen in unit if you want to self cater.
Bed was a little soft and woke up with sore backs but others may prefer that.
Our room had amazing personal touches and quirky styling of a old sailing ship. Port and starboard lights beside the bed. A sextant style lamp. Dinning area shaped like a galley. It was a great place to relax.
Only two aspects that were not so good; the construction going on beside the hotel for a new car park. The Spa is to be avoided! This is not part of the Aston management and it shows. It may be ok for the blue rinse brigade but definitely not anybody else. They describe themselves as being rated "best massage on Maui" - nothing could be further from the truth. I asked for a hard massage, what I got a a cold, dry handed massage that barely did anything except eventually send me to sleep. They offer a "special deal" to entice you but even that is rubbish. To thoroughly enjoy your stay avoid the spa.
I have already recommended this place to two friends who are going to Hawaii in the coming months. The location is amazing. Right on the beach and very close to restaurants, shops and lots of places to walk / run. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly with everything from luggage to zip lining places to the best time to be in the ocean. Would highly recommend a room on the courtyard side as you get a view of the ocean, courtyard and mountains.
We paid for an ocean view room and were initially given a room overlooking construction. The hotel was very accommodating and changed our room (so overall a very positive experience). The rooms were cleaned every day but not the cleanest rooms ever. Definitely nothing that would keep me from staying there again.
We thought we'd splash out on a great hotel for this leg of our trip and we were not disappointed. This place was amazing! Spacious rooms with a big balcony, spotlessly clean, amazing views. Very quiet and comfortable. Close to shops and easy to drive from here to other locations on the island. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
Fantastic accommodation, the best accommodation we had in all of Hawaii. Great pool and bbq facilities, the room was great and very spacious, well equipped kitchen. The most relaxing environment, gorgeous gardens, exceptionally clean, huge balconies, friendly staff. We will definitely be returning, a premium property. 100% satisfied.
Nothing. It was all great.
No electric jug
'The Whaler' is next to the whaler village and Kaanapali Beach. A swimming pool is available, and room is clean and comfortable. Kitchen is excellent.
No store in the hotel though ABC store is available in the whaler village (5 min walk). Transportation is relatively uncomfortable, as many Maui hotels do. So you may need to rent a car.
great location and facilities
Small thing but daily room service, very varied from first thing in the morning to late afternoon. For sleep-in or afternoon rest
Just returned from my trip to Maui. Accommodations at the Whaler were awesome! The condo was very clean and offered modern, up to date amenities. although it was a studio, it was very spacious with full dinning, living and kitchen area. I can't say enough about how clean and well kept it was! The proximity of the property to the beach and surrounding shops/restaurants made this an ideal place to stay-home away from home. The staff were also very friendly and attentive. My husband and I plan to visit again.
Cleaning crew checked in daily to ask if we needed clean towels or any toiletries. Staff was very friendly and always helpful. We were attended to every day by polite staff.
Wish the swimming pool had more lights in it for the late pool use. The pool has a few lights and needing more.
Great location, grounds and close to so much to do and see, could not have asked for anything better.
The only bad thing was parking at night you had to park below but trust me it is beautiful so it did not matter.
Hard to beat them
I loved the location right next door to Whaler's Village. It made a quick bite to eat very convenient. The rooms are very nice with great views of the sunset. Good wifi and the unit had 2 TVs allowing the kids to watch something different than us.
As the condos are individually owned, we were met with major construction being done directly above our room. I spoke with the manager and they gave me another room (with a worse view but within the same category). Unfortunately, it was next to the elevator so we heard the elevator at all hours. That could happen anywhere though. I also wish the pool had access to a bar and was nicer but the grounds are beautiful. Parking underground was full 2 nights of our stay so we had to park in overflow parking.
