Again, we visited Maui and again, we stayed at the the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach. It was even better than the time before and it was it awesome at that time. The staff is great. The room was amazing. It felt like we were in an upscale, 5+ star hotel, with all of most up to date, high tech amenities.... More

Enjoyed a week in Maui at The Whaler. Upon arrival was pleased to learn we had been upgraded. Everyone was very friendly and most helpful. Loved Fred at Bell services and Jennifer at the beach. Have nothing negative to say about our stay. Minor hiccup with the hot tub for an evening or two but staff was on it and... More

Friendly, helpful staff, well-appointed clean rooms, easy access to beach activities, dining and shopping. Kitchen space is such a bonus for us not only as a cost savings but just better eating habits. But best of all was the relaxing atmosphere. Listening to the ocean waves every night, waking up to sunrise on the balcony and returning for sunset. Can... More

My husband and I have just spent five nights in a one bedroom condo. The room was great, spacious and sunny for most of the day. The location was excellent and the staff friendly although we really didn't see much of them - just at check-in and check-out. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Just spent five nights here in a one bedroom condo, although it had a third bed too. Lovely room (219) with an amazing view. Having just spent three nights at the Aston at the Waikiki Banyan in Honolulu, this was so lovely in comparison. Our room was ready when we arrived at midday, unlike the Banyan, so we didn't have...

Our family of 4 ( Parents plus 2 early 20's sons) stayed at the Whaler for 5 nights in a two bedroom premium apartment. Only way to describe this apartment was beautiful. Very spacious throughout and very well appointed in both the kitchen and furnishings. Our apartment was at the back of the building but had wrap around veranda's so... More

We stayed at the Whaler for 7 nights in October and the location was perfect if you don't want to use your car very much. Beautiful sunsets, warm days and beach/pool a few steps away. We stayed in a private rental and I wouldn't do that again, I would stay with the Aston. As the private rental had way too... More

The one word to describe the owners of this vacation condo is "CLASS" The condo is "luxurious " with excellent positioning over the Beach. Just got here so will evaluate the building's staff and service throughout our stay later

We stayed at the Whaler for 23 days until November 19. The reason we chose this facility was because of the excellent treatment we had received during our 10-day stay in March at an Aston condo in Honolulu. At check out at the Whaler we were presented with a bill of over $1,200. When we asked the receptionist by the... More

We stayed at this location for 8 nights and the location and facility was outstanding. We had a first floor one bedroom garden view. I think that it was the best room the building could offer. We ate breakfast on the patio every morning with a great view of the ocean. It was about 40 yards to the beach itself.... More
