Aston Maui Hill
- What's Included
When you exchange with RCI as we did, you are booking into a specific unit. You cannot switch units. Our unit was #5, which we were very happy with. First all of Maui Lea is up on a hillside [hence the name @ Maui Hill]. So even though unit #5 is a ‘ground’ floor unit both the entrance and lanai are elevated above ground level. The resort is ‘older’, but in the good sense of that word… back when words like large and spacious had real meaning! Unit #5 was recently refurbished. It had one of the best equipped kitchens of all the condos we’ve stayed in over the year. There were ice cubes in freezer and a bottle of cold water waiting for us in the frig when we arrived. Kitchen furnishings were fantastic. There was even a beach umbrella in the closet for our use. The individual rooms were very spacious. The master bedroom bathroom had been completely redone as a walk-in shower. Great for rinsing off snorkel gear. We got a lot of use on the big lanai — see attached picture. Great for breakfast and late night dinners. We were able to see the ocean as well as Molokini Island. Even though it was already April, we saw a whale off in the distance — see attached picture. The pool was adequate, but we didn't spend any time there given the proximity of Kamaole III Beach just up the road. Great snorkeling on the left side as you look out to the ocean. Maui Lea is within an easy walk of the 5 Palms Restaurant - great happy hour that starts @ 3:00 - half price drinks and appetizers. It is also a great place for a sunset dinner — but make reservations. There is a weekly ‘owners’ happy hour around the pool. Prizes, Maui chips, free drinks, and live entertainment. Next time we stay on Maui, we will definitely try to get back into unit #5!
First: the rooms not very clean on arrival / stove was greasy as were counter tops / floors not very clean. Just felt grimy the whole time and never improved. Constantly had to wipe down areas and counters. We took the place mats out of the drawer to use; they were covert in old food / gross! Second: when we arrived we had two sets of towels each. After the first day we only had one set. So if you wanted to take more than one shower per day you had to dry off the second time with a wet towel. Not cool. Third: they say they have very strict guest rules. We came back from dinner around nine o'clock on Thursday and found cars and people everywhere. No place to park and at least 30 people party-an around the BBQ area, loudly! Woke up the next day there was a broken tree / extra BBQ present stolen from other parts of the grounds along with extra propane tanks. Tire burn out marks and broken glass on the walkway to the beach steps. Called the front desk around 7am and got transferred to housekeeping and was told she would send some men down to take care of it. Nothing was done. On Friday the party started up again about 1:30 am Friday night / lots of cars and yelling. Sat morning was check out for us and nothing had been done to clean up the mess from Thursday or Friday night parties. Not until check out when we let them know what had been happening did they investigate the problem down there. With all those employees buzzing around and not noticing missing Weber BBQ s and propane tanks not to mention a hacked down 10' palm tree and broken bottles on the walk ways??We stayed in condo number six which has been upgraded inside and has spectacular views of West Maui and Molokini and Kahoolawe.This could be a wonderful condo if it was properly cleaned and had adequate security.Use to stay here yearly in the nineties / not sure what happened.Mike Bailey Traveled May 4 – May 13 2017. Two couples.
My husband and I stayed in unit 131 which was a garden view unit. The kitchen was well equipped with all needed appliances and housekeeping promptly delivered a rice cooker upon request. My husband was on dialysis treatment while there so having a comfortable place to land was critical. The chairs in the living room are probably the most comfortable easy chair I've ever sat in. I didn't even realize until our 4th day that the chairs are recliners! I know that there was a Manager's Mai Tai event on Wednesday but it was scheduled the dame time he was in treatment in Wailuku so we were not able to partake.The only criticism I might have is the lighting in the bedroom is very limited. The shaded lamps may look nice but it was a bit on the dark side.The landscape is very established and well maintained. Kamaole Beach is about a 10 minute walk down hill. The current can be a little wild for those who are not experienced swimmers.Overall our stay was very nice. This resort is older and there have been updates but we found it cool that they still use keys and not key cards! Also there is a Foodland tag on the key ring which comes in handy when buying groceries!
We booked the Maui Hill for our honeymoon and on the surface, it is a great spot. The staff are attentive, the location is great and the units appear clean. On the first night I watched a cockroach crawl across the floor and shortly into our stay, we could hear them in the night in the kitchen and bedroom.Being someone who's travelled through the states, central and South America, it's a given that bugs may be present but I wasn't expecting to deal with them on my honeymoon. Every time we washed our dishes in the dishwasher, we'd find several dead in the dishwasher, even after it was brought up to staff and the unit was sprayed, they were still showing up after the in the dishwasher. We had to wash and then re-wash all our dishes by hand and pick out the mushy dead ones in the dishwasher (gross!) after each load. The staff were quick to address the cockroach issue and have the unit sprayed the next day (which was our second last day). If you can deal with the pests then I'd recommend this place. I'd be interested to know what pest control measures are put in place before staying here again.
Our condo was on top of the hill- awesome views of ocean and the mountain ; wishing I was on that lanai right now. We had 3 bdroom, 3 bath, mostly renovated room- bathrooms were great- kitchen also great - with nice supplies left for us (and even beach chairs, umbrella too). The A/C was in bedrooms and main living and worked ok -better than no A/C for sure- but main area hot at times.. but once it got going it was better. The pool and hottub are nice. The service and people are friendly. We will go back because we loved the location in Kihei and found this resort to meet our needs. Its not 5 star- but it has a lot of nice amenities, and family friendly.
