Aston at Papakea Resort
Ranked #26 of 32 Hotels in Lahaina
Reviewed December 16, 2013

We decided to stay somewhere different this time and this place was just the right fit and location. Yea you could pay for the upper class overpriced brand named places but this just feels homey. the staff are polite, friendly and helpful. You can also use other amenities at the Aston Shores next door for the fitness, restaurant and bar. they have great pools and BBQ's set up in the pool area which is nice. Overall this place mellow and relaxing and you meet great people. The value is worth it as you have plenty left over for the other things to do because as you know Maui can be expensive.

Room Tip: They are all good

No complaints but it could use a makeover. They are currently upgrading some of the condos and we definatley got one that could use the upgrade. Not the best beach for swimming, you need to go to the other beaches. The location is pretty good, nearby other beaches and convenient shopping. We are having a great time in Maui and overall our experience here has been 5 stars.

We rented 2 units off of vrbo, one was through the owners directly, the other was through qualm property management, both units were great and dealing with each owner/management was excellent. Nicole from quam properties was exceptional and returned my emails quickly while were there.

Security persons were very anal. Had no common sense, rules seemed to be different for owners as opposed to families. We were very disappointed with the pool rules that they would not use some common sense, 2 year olds were told they couldn't play with balls in the pool.

Our only complaint in this resort was the rules surrounding the pool.

Another lovely stay at Papakea. We stayed for two weeks in an ocean front condo. Not all units at Papakea are the same. Our first night we got a unit we did not care for, but we were able to change units the next day thanks to a very helpful staff. We loved that unit. We appreciate the staff and grounds keepers at Papakea for keeping things so nice.

We bought our plane tickets in Jan. 2013. The next day I started the search on where to stay for my wife and I and our kids ( 12, 14 ). I put a deposit down on L-407 ( found on VRBO ) in Feb. Everyday up until Oct. 4, when we had to have our full payment paid, I looked on an average of an hour a day for a better deal. Could not find it. You know why. I already had it. You will not find a more thrifty traveler than me, I did not say cheap. I want comfort and I want to save money for other things to do on Maui. Papakea meets this criteria.
I have stayed at the Whaler and before that in Wailea, all beautiful. Enjoyed this property just as much, if not more.
This place is pristine, pools clean, spa clean, putting green perfect, everyone and I mean everyone guests and staff alike were kind, just what you want when you go to Maui to chill for two weeks. There are three ocean-facing buildings, L being one of them. Step out the lanai and the ocean is right there. Fall asleep and wake up with the sound of the surf. This place is so relaxing.
You have read what is close by so I won't waste time here.
Do your research but the rate I paid ( $235 a night ) for a 2 bedroom (loft) 1 bath condo with washer/dryer, etc. ...YOU WILL NOT BEAT THIS PRICE FOR THE TIME OF YEAR WITH THIS VIEW.
If you desire luxury disregard my review. That can be found at the other much more populous resorts.
Our worst day was our last day.
We had to board an airplane.
Aloha.

We stayed here for 7 nights in a 1 Bedroom condo which had a bedroom in the back of the unit and nice kitchen/living/dining in front overlooking the ocean. We were with our two boys 14 and 8 years old. We requested and got a ground floor unit which turned out to be a great choice. The kids could just walk out the condo and go to the ocean side whenever they felt like. We were a little worried about privacy on the ground floor but after reading other reviews I had requested a unit in Building A which is the corner building so very little traffic there. The condos are a bit dated but ours was very nicely furnished. There was daily maid-service, internet and cable. We had booked a package through Costco Travel so we only paid a resort fee of $15/day extra at the end as already stated by Costco in the contract. We used the swimming pool and spa almost daily at the end of our day and both were very nice. One of the pool is heated which came handy; it being the month of November. Their security is very particular and they close the pool and spas down at 10 PM sharp which help keeps the resort very quiet at night. I was quiet impressed by the staff and the upkeep of the resort by Aston. The ocean is very very close to the resort and the water comes all the way to the Sea Wall they have built so there isn't much of a beach in front of Building A and F but building L has some beach; also you can just walk a few hundred feet to the left of building L after crossing a tiny bridge and there is plenty of sandy beach there for you to relax and the kids to play. My wife and I loved having our morning tea in the porch everyday listening to the waves.
There is a Times Supermarket a short walk/drive away which remains open till 2 AM. The resort is about 45 minutes drive from the Kahului airport. Right after landing and renting the car I would recommend stopping at Costco which is about 5 minutes from the airport to pick up the supplies for your stay.
All in all we had a great stay and and would recommend this resort.

Room Tip: If you are looking for privacy along with ground floor in an ocean front condo then book a unit in B...

The resort is at a great location with great sea facing condos. There was construction going on which was kind of bummer. But our condo was great! The resort is not very fancy but great price for the money.

Overall we would stay here again.
