On the beach in the middle of several resorts and next to the Whaler Village. Most rooms have good views of the ocean,avoid the lower... More

My husband and I found Unit 818 listed on VRBO and were able to negotiate a price that was a lot better than booking directly with the property on Expedia. Our condo has amazing views of the ocean and Black Rock (famous for snorkeling), and the property itself has all the amenities you need for a long-term stay. What we... More

We had a great time in Maui and at the Aston. The building is old and the condo we were in was a bit dated but overall, it was a comfy stay. We stayed in Unit 713, garden view studio and it was great in the sense that we thought we were only going to get a garden view, but... More

My husband and I just stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and it was just amazing!! We had an upgraded suite with a great view! There's a full kitchen which saved us money because eating out in Maui is not cheap. Definitely worth it to get an upgraded room unless you like the older Hawaiian feel in terms... More

My wife and I are currently staying in condo 411 at The Whaler. Our view from the north tower building looks south and tothe island of Lanai, the grounds between the towers, and all the beach activity. 411 is the third unit back, a perspective I really like. You still have a beautiful full view of the ocean from the... More

My husband I spent a wonderful week at the Aston at the Whaler. We stayed in a lovely one bedroom, two bath condo on the 10th floor. The condo was well maintained and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Even though it was Easter week, we never felt like there were people everywhere. The location is great... More

We stayed in a ocean side room during Spring Break. This unit looks directly at the ocean and sidewalk that connects all the hotels. I could literally throw a Frisbee from our room into the ocean. There was not a single hotel/condo on the beach that was closer to the ocean than our room! The grounds at the Whaler are... More

We stayed a week in a two bedroom unit. Pretty view From the deck but the inside was old and tired. Needs Updated and general maintenance. The grounds and beach were nice. They do charge for chairs, umbrellas Ect on the beach.

You will have less noise. Excellent housekeeping and the grounds are always maintained. The rooms we've stayed in are very clean with updated kitchens and air conditioning. A perfect place to walk and enjoy the Ocean, black rock and Whales. Don't forget to visit black rock at sunset to see the cliff divers. More kids this year than last. We... More

The studio condo units are far better and less expensive than conventional hotels. Ours had a phenom view of the beach and courtyard as well access to the beach, pool, hot tub, BBQ grills, etc. Black Rock is a stone's throw away to enjoy great snorkeling. Pretty much nightly you can experience a free outdoor show in the Sheraton's courtyard... More
