Aston Kaanapali Shores
- What's Included
Aston Kaanapali Shores offered a nice variety of amenities from tennis to shuffleboard, bags, beautiful pools, free movie rentals and beautifully updated rooms. The Ocean Front views are remarkable. Great view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. The beach is easily accessible and offers great views. An upgraded view is definitely the way to go to enhance your experience. Staff and management were extremely helpful and willing to assist with the stay.
We have just returned from Maui, lovely big rooms, decor is slightly dated however does not detract from the wonderful view of the garden and beach. The rooms are spacious with a kitchen that has everything you need. A supermarket is across the road so easy enough to go and do shopping. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and always willing to help.
After deciding to extend my trip by one day (night of July 13th 2017), I decided to stay at Aston Kaanapali Shores due to Royal Lahaina (where I was the previous five nights) being too expensive. The resort is a short drive from Royal Lahaina, further up Kaanapali beach. After parking and walking into the lobby, was pleasantly surprised. They seem to have more going on for guests than Royal Lahaina. Lei-making classes on Friday mornings, a craft fair in the Lobby on Thursdays, free Scuba lessons for guests, etc. I arrived at the hotel in the morning (around 11am on day of check-in) fully expecting to check my bags until check-in time of 3 PM. To my pleasant surprise, they had a room ready and the woman checking me in said I was upgraded! SCORE!!I immediately went to my room and was stunned by the sheer size. I had a living room, a dining room table. A nice kitchen with granite counter-tops. A long hallway leading to a separate bedroom. Large size!! The sofa is a pull-out bed. I am thinking, wow what a deal. Would be a great place for a small family. I was here this night by myself so I could not fully appreciate the nice size. I dropped my stuff off, changed and went to rent snorkel gear from the pool stand.The woman who works at the pool stand is incredibly nice. However, I would not recommend renting snorkel gear from the hotel. Go RIGHT across the street to Snorkel Bob's and be properly fitted for top-notch equipment. I rented a snorkel, goggles, and fin I drove down the road to Honolua Bay and was sad to discover the extreme low-quality of the goggles. I immediately wished I would have gone across the street to Snorkel Bob's. The prices are even cheaper there! The hotel charged $14.99 for the day. Snorkel Bob's is about $10 and its better equipment!! Anyway, I spent my entire day out about, snorkeling, exploring, etc. I came back and ate dinner at the hotel restaurant. I enjoyed a beautiful view of the sunset over the water from the restaurant. The food was not that great. I will write a separate review of the restaurant. However, ambiance was nice with the man singing and playing guitar during the meal.After, I used the DVDNow card the hotel supplied to me to rent a movie. I watched it in the living room and then stumbled to sleep. Upon waking in the morning, I went back to the pool stand and was able to substitute my mask and snorkel for one that was slightly better. I went back to Honolua Bay and had an incredible morning.After, I headed back to the hotel to prepare for check-out. It was then that I discovered that the maid had not cleaned the sheets between the previous guest and myself. I *thankfully* slept on the left side of the bed. On the right side were remnants of disgusting chinese food remnants. A piece of chicken and some sort of sticky sauce. This is absolutely unacceptable and disgusting. For all of the redeeming qualities of this property, this one error constitutes that no one should visit. I find it completely unacceptable to not change the sheets. I would rather stay in a small box of a room with no amenities not on the beach then somewhere that does not change sheets in between visitors. This is extremely unhygienic and GROSS. I notified the front desk upon check-out and they were so kind as to waive my $20 resort fee. Thanks? As a result, I will never recommend this place to anyone. I feel extremely grossed out that the maids were so extremely lazy to not even change visibly dirty sheets. I will add that this was not my food, I ate some chips and a yogurt in the living room. I barely spent anytime in the bedroom, only to sleep. Please see attached pictures for the food on the bed.;TLDR This property is disgusting and does not meet basic standards of cleanliness. Your money is best spent anywhere else that properly works on training maid staff.
We booked an ocean view suite and everyone in our group loved it. The location of the resort is absolutely great and we woke up hearing the waves every morning. Overall the amenities of the resort were nice so one can enjoy the pools or the beaches.
My wife and I loved this place. We had a studio with a kitchen. I was a little worried that it may be a very small room when we booked it; however, it was a very big room. There is a grocery store right across the street and you can stock your refrigerator within 30 minutes of checking in. The rooms are a little dated, but it was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had a beautiful view of the garden area around the first pool. We would go back to this place again.
