Stayed at Aston Whaler on Kaanapali Beach in April 2013. Staff were exceptionally nice to us from the moment we drove on to facility grounds to the time we left. Our daughter and her husband stayed nearby and were so impressed with the entire Aston Whaler experience, they spent most of their vacation visiting us. Cleaning staff paid close "attention...

We had a studio ocean view room on the sixth floor and were pleasantly surprised by the extent of our view and the facilities in our room. Being next door to the whalers village was also very convenient would definitely stay there again

This review will be like a blog, the rating as of today is Excellent based on our upgraded Studio (the size, clean, granite, SS appliances, large balcony, etc) with a great ocean view, the grounds are well groomed, the pool looks fantastic (haven't tried it) lots of chairs and loungers, we are on day 2 of our vacation.

I guess I expect better service. Here is my story. We checked in on a Sat., after completing a 7 day cruise around the Islands. Sunday morning we wanted to do the laundry so we went to the coin operated machine on our floor. The cost of $1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry was OK, So we put our...

Aloha, In basic terms, we failed to provide service to you. You are absolutely right – small details matter. On behalf of my team, I apologize. We are better than this and it saddens me to know we did not handle your concern well. I expect to improve and perhaps one day we might get a chance to show you...

Booked online directly with hotel and Stayed here with my brother August 2013 - I expected more I guess! Booked a 1bdrm/2 bath but they gave us 1 bdrm/1 bath with a big roach on kitchen counter (saw it on 5th day). Was the roach from next door? However, it is a quiet room with partial ocean view!

Aloha, I believe your concerns are absolutely valid and your first trip to Maui should have been better. Pest control is a priority for us and every good hotel in Hawaii has a program like ours to reduce the chance of seeing pests. I hope you find your ideal accommodations in the future and I apologize for any inconvenience you...

We arrived in HI and when we reached our hotel, the bellboy was extremely friendly and had a huge smile on his face. We went down to the beach, later, and it was sandy, but with no shells or snorkeling. Overall, this is a great resort with some activities, but it is better to go elsewhere to have fun.

My wife and I stayed here recently when we visited Hawaii. It was an excellent hotel. Excellent customer service. Nice views over looking Kaanapali beach. Near whaler village.

Aloha, I appreciate your kind words and recognition of our efforts. I have asked the front desk team to focus on providing all information about guest charges so our guests know what to expect.

I really shouldn't say anything nice about the Whaler because it's getting harder and harder to reserve rooms there, even nine months in advance. Don't go there! It has everything you need, so where's the challenge! Seriously though, against my better judgement, I love that place and wouldn't stay anywhere else. I love the fact that it's a condo which...

I really don't think the location can be improved upon by even 1 inch. I've been to Maui roughly 20 times in my life for work and pleasure. I have stayed at the Whaler on 6 of those occasions. This is the only property I have stayed at more than once. Sometimes I really enjoy the luxury, and the really...

Stayed at the Whaler for a few nights on Maui and it was lovely. It is a great spot to relax and the little shopping complex was very handy.
