Our 3rd year at the Whaler

Our previous stays here were great. As we checked out year 2 we said we would be back. We were given the reservations managers name and told to contact him and he would take care of us. It was great speaking with him and we were given a choice of 5 ocean front units that Aston worked with. Our friends then reserved 5 other units near us in the same building who wanted to come and celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with us. When we arrived they downgraded our reservation and put us in the other building from all our family and friends. The front desk staff were rude and unfriendly after two years of wonderful experiences. We had a ground floor in front of the bbq's. Just a warning.

I'm not sure how you could do better than this!

Where to start? Pulled up and the valet was dancing and laughing and we immediately felt at home. She was enjoying life and turned out to be extraordinarily helpful, which I found was a common theme with every one of the staff members we encountered. Down to a person they were helpful, courteous, and professional. This is a condo complex and many of the units are individually owned. We talked for a bit with one of the owners in the lobby and even she was awesome! We ended up in an Ocean View Premium Studio room. Updated stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and stone tile floors and shower. This unit had a full service kitchen with drawers full of utensils that you'd need to prepare almost any meal. We walked out onto the private Lanai and BAM!, there's the island of Molokai off in the distance. Gorgeous! The complex is extraordinarily (I'll be using this word a lot) clean and quiet. I can't say for sure but it seems to cater to older couples? It's perfectly positioned in relation to both the ocean and nearby restaurants and shops. It's situated right next to The Whaler's Mall which has every conceivable thing you could imagine from GoPro cameras to sunscreen. Need a Rolex? You can get one here. Hop in your car and you're a 2 mile drive from grocery stores, gas stations, more restaurants etc... And the housekeepers? Alice from The Brady Bunch would be jealous! We came in one afternoon and found a handwritten note from the housekeeper wishing us a good day! (Thanks Veronica) They were all very attentive and extraordinarily (there it is again) professional. This complex is on the south end of Ka'anapali Beach which puts you in a great overall location for the backside drive and the Road to Hana. We're already booking a longer stay in November at this very location and hopefully the same unit will be available. IMHO, you can't go wrong with this place :) Mahalo!

  • Martin H :

The resort location is fabulous how ever that’s as far as it goes; our condo unit old and definitely not a four star plus unit, main living area is ok but old, however toilet and patio furniture is awful, patio table is dirty has cigarette burns and glass is cracked, imagine being in Kaanapali and not being able to sit or eat on your patio very poor, report to front desk four time and very little response Will not recommend this condo building at allMartin Higgins

Wonderful stay

This is a top notch place to stay. Kitchenette, big bathroom area, comfortable beds and the view of Kaanapali Beach is breathtaking. Very clean, staff very accommodating and beach walk is right by the pool. Will come back here when in Maui.

Amazing Employees/Great room

We have just returned from a 10 stay at the Whaler on Maui.It was Great! I say this because the Aston is made up of privately owned and hotel rental condos. I had booked a private 2 bedroom condo (902) through a 3rd party vacation rental company but as it turned out we arrived to find out that the rental was a scam. Jason was on duty at the front desk and he was sympathetic and helpful.Keeping in mind that the island was 96% booked up for the Christmas holidays, he was able to find a room on site for our family of 4. It was only a 1 bedroom but he informed me that he would keep an eye out for a 2 bedroom. Within 2 days Jason's associate was able to find us a 2 bedroom. The condo was wonderful with breathtaking sunsets. all rooms were well appointed.Thank you again Whaler Employees!
