Aston at the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach
- What's Included
As others have said, this is a great property in a great location. But, check out the location of your condo. We were in the building that faces the mall and its garbage units. It was noisy and though we had an "ocean view" as paid for if, you looked to the right, the view was largely unappealing and disappointing.
We stayed at the whaler for 9 days as part of our 2 weeks honeymoon. We payed a little extra to get upgraded to a fully renovated condo on the 5th floor, which was totally worth it. The condo was really spacious and we enjoyed the full kitchen to be able to prepare a few meals, mostly breakfast and and a few dinners thanks to the common BBQs. The hotel is ideally located, next to the whaler's village. We enjoyed being able to walk there and shop around, tried the neighbouring restaurants ( especially Leilani's ) and be able to take the bus to Lahaina and Kapalua. The hotel is right on the Kaanapali beach, and you an walk up the beach to several other resorts. We had a very nice ocean view, enjoyed the hot tub and pool. Rooms were very cleaned and staff very friendly. We would definitely go back and recommend.
I'll just dot point the feedback as overall I'd come back to stay for sure. *check-in 4pm, a little earlier would be better as we landed at 8am. 2pm is normal in Australia, what is normal here?* lovely grounds with tennis courts and pool.* free parking* free wifi* friendly staff!* good location to restaurants and about a 5-8 minutes drive to lahania where there are lots of restaurants on front street.* has awesome little kitchen so you can make your own food!!! A huge for us with breakfast on the balcony. * great view of the ocean from both towers.* easy to go from the pool to the beach and back to the pool. * decent pool and hot tub. * rooms very spacious so didn't feel cramped. King bed, a sofa and a table with 4 chairs to eat at, plus a table with 2 chairs on the balcony. * Nathan who helped with the bags was both helpful and lovely! Had to mentioned him :) I liked the hotel. If you want more upmarket The Western and Hilton are close by with grounds/pools that look right onto the water but really I couldn't fault this hotel. And Hawaii is expensive enough as it is and I thought this was good value for money!!!
This a great property in a fantastic location. They have done allot to improve their image in the past 5 or 6 years. Built in the 1970's this was the first Condo complex on Kaanapali Beach. I just stayed in unit 524 I was booked for 12 days but left after 6 nights. My unit was spacious but lacked any decent furniture. It had a hide a bed sofa that was sat out in the Living room. That was it! No chairs for us to sit in to read or relax when the wind and rain hit all day Sunday. The dining room chairs, all 4 of them had screws that poked up into you. They too were old and outdated. My wife asked to move and she looked at 5 other units. They were also tired looking with poor furnishings. So instead of staying we checked out and paid more elsewhere. Well worth it in my book.
Second time staying at The Whaler and again a great trip. The location is really what draws us to this place. But I also have to say that the staff are just as great! We rented unit #1056 and were very pleased. The view from the master bedroom in particular was the top of my list. To wake up every morning with the view of the ocean, beach and Black Rock... ahhhh. Thank you again Whaler!
