We stayed here at the Papakea for 9 nights, the room was cleaned and spacious had to fix a few things when we arrived, don't run the drier to much as it vents into the condo. Really close to a shopping center (extremely expensive), are travel rep Debbie was great and responsive. The reason for the 3 is the a/c... More

The place was nice, landscape was kept up and looked great. Aston Papakea was in a good location, restaurants, grocery and shopping all in close proximity. Good snorkeling off the coast. The negatives, AC was noisy and did not get cool air to the bed room. The room was dated and needs updating. The property needs a beach, very rocky.... More

On the infamous kaanapali beach but not the best part of it. Pretty small. Close to everything though. Very nice grounds and excellent hot tub. Use of BBQ . Our particular unit was old and dated. Others were nicer. Unit was clean.

The Papakea resort grounds are great, and was a quite experience. There are multiple property management companies at Papakea. I feel the Aston management does not care about you and will take amenities away and never tell you about it and still charge you for those amenities. Tried contacting them twice by phone and never received a call back and... More

Beautiful setting, near to many activities and sites to see. Concierge staff (Expedia employees) were REALLY great -- skilled, knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Accommodations are standard timeshare, condo-like. It was a little inconvenient that there are multiple management companies managing the different units, and it is all separate from the front desk, so the desk cannot answer common questions. Resort... More

Me and my family stayed at the Aston Papakea. My son fell, due to a faulty stair coming from the loft. They brought him an incident report to fill out and 5 days later, we turned it in when we left. 3 days of our stay, he had to go to the doctor and constantly call someone to see what... More

I took my chance and booked it through Hotwire site and I am paying for it I guess. We just checked in and room stinks, Ac does not work, you have to drag your luggage in a building. I have never expected something like this in Maui. Beware. Spend little more and book somewhere else. Called the front desk and... More

Every cloud has a silver lining, I suppose. So there are some good at this hotel, to balance out the bad. Or vice versa...The location is great, north end of Kaanapali Beach, near a grocery and Slappy Cakes. On the other hand, there is no beach here. The entire property is fronted by a retaining/breaker wall, so if you want... More

This resort is a great place to stay if you have a family of 4 or more. I was on Maui for a baseball tournament for my son. My family decided to "bunk" together with another family to cut down cost. I got this resort on Hotwire for $112 a night for a 2 bedroom condo. I was taking a... More

Stayed at the Papakea Resort 7/2-9 with my teenage daughter. Great location in Kaanapali. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: Easy to get to, great location which is across from the store and some really great quick restaurants and shave ice. ABC store is on other side of parking lot. Walking distance to the farmers market and park. Beautiful... More
