Recently visited Maui for a mini vacation. We booked about two weeks in advance with the Aston Maui Lu, primarily for the lower price and the package offer that included a car. The normal rental car prices for this time of year are outrageous and the offer we had was fair. The hotel sits on a huge piece of beachfront property. However a busy two lane highway separates the beach front rooms from the rest of the hotel. We were not warned the hotel has no restaurant, snack bar, snack machines on the premises nor is there an ice machine. You can get ice from coolers at the front desk - but it is highly inconvenient for most guests. The rooms are old-fashioned, you an actual key that you have to pay a deposit for (refund is not for 7 days after) a newspaper delivered to the door and the rooms are very large, although dark. There is a noisy above head air conditioner, the furniture dated. The bed was great for a hotel king, no sag. The worst part of our stay was the internet connection was very poor . Do not come here if you want to connect on line and catch up on any news. It is an older resort in need of repair. They have leased part of the property to a church/college. One of the buildings is uninhabitable. Otherwise, the grounds are clean, the pool large and the staff unremarkable...they did there job without noticing guests.
We truly enjoyed the beach setting and would recommend you spend the extra $ and go for the beachfront. Get the ice at check-in and load up at the grocery store in town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- South Maui's best beachfront value. Guests can stroll Maui's oldest coconut grove on the hotel's 28 lush acres. This property's rustic feel and secluded beach coves (not to mention a pool in the shape of Maui) add up to a charming experience and a great vacation value. ... more less
