Aston at the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach
- What's Included
Great location on Ka"anapali Beach right next to Whaler's Village with great shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Just a short drive to Lahaina and Front street. Rooms are well appointed with full kitchens and are clean and well appointed. I would stay here again.
Beautiful property with beautiful gardens, just a short walk from shops and bars and other accomodation. Room was a bit dated but the view from the balcony to the gorgeous garden made up for it. Beach towels provided as many times as needed each day. Located right next to the beach and near a popular snorkelling spot where we saw a turtle. Had a great stay here.
We have stayed here many times. It isn't the poshest of resorts, but it is conveniently located next to Whalers Village and near Lahaina. This time we stayed in a 1 bedroom, 2 bath condo. While it was dated in the decor, it was clean, had a wrap around lanai, and an ocean view. The property has finished remodel of the main check in area which is lovely. We stayed in building 2 (south tower, north side).
We had five nights at The Whaler last month and had a great time! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room on the sixth floor of tower 2 had a view of the ocean and looked over Whaler's Village. Our room was very clean and tidy and had great facilities. The proximity of the hotel to Whaler's Village, restaurants and the bus stop outside the village was great. We didn't hire a car so having the bus stop close by was very convenient. $2 per bus ride was a great way to get to Lahaina for shopping and dining and we also went to Kapalua. We would thoroughly recommend The Whaler and hope to be back some day :)
The Whaler is a beautiful property, wonderfully located directly on Kaanapali beach. The staff is friendly and accommodating to the extent that they can be. We have stayed here at least 4 or 5 times, having a terrific experience each time. We always pay extra for a premium unit with an ocean view and request a high floor as well. We have always been happy. This trip, however, was different. We were given a lovely premium unit (upgraded furniture/kitchen/bathroom). The unit itself was gorgeous. While we never expect perfection, there were several issues that substantially interfered with our enjoyment. (1) No hot water. In order to get hot water into our unit it was necessary to turn on all of the hot water in the all of the sinks, showers and tubs and let them run for about 5 minutes. After several minutes the water would warm up and eventually become hot enough to take a shower or to wash our hands. Whaler maintenance and management explained that the problem was not fixable. It was due to the way the plumbing in the building was installed. (2) Construction noise. We had been warned that there might be some construction noise emanating from work being done at nearby Whaler's Village. That noise turned out to be non-existent. Instead, they neglected to tell us that there was substantial construction being done on the 10th and 11th floors in our building, or that there was a construction project underway DIRECTLY ABOVE OUR UNIT. We endured drill hammering, banging and sawing noise throughout our stay. When we complained and asked to be moved to another comparable unit, we were told that would not be possible.(3) Ocean view. Yes there was a sliver of an ocean view if you went out onto the lanai. But the "ocean view" aspect was a major overstatement and a bit of a disappointment, especially considering that we paid extra for an ocean view unit. There wasn't really an ocean view from anywhere inside the one bedroom condominium unless you were directly against the glass slider in the living room. Calling this an "ocean view" unit worth more money is just plain dishonest. Of course, notwithstanding all of the above, we had an incredible vacation in Hawaii anyway because it is impossible not to do so in this paradise.
