Reviewed April 26, 2014

Unit a204. Beachfront. But no beach . Unit is outdated. Could use a new tv . Upgraded bath towels and a new mattress. Not that bad of a location for sleeping and than heading out though. I would not stay here again . Noise next door I guess they are doing Reno. Nice help desk for excursions. 1 pool is heated. Bye he papakea

Room Tip: Try to get a unit that's been updated

We (2 couples) stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. It was a great spot for exploring Maui...the beaches, restaurants and golf courses. The concierge was very helpful with 'local' recommendations and directions. We had a minor issue with one of the washrooms and it was promptly attended to. We could walk to a grocery store, gelato shop, pizzeria and a little blues bar.

We stayed at the Papakea for 10 days and would recommend to someone looking for a clean and quiet place to relax in a good location. The condos have fully equipped kitchens and a washer/dryer. We had a ground floor unit looking towards the pool area which was convenient when using the BBQ grills in the evening.

The resort is well maintained and clean. Just know there is not a swimmable beach on the property - not a deal breaker for us. There is no restaurant on site, so be sure to stop at Costco after the airport.

If you want a spectacular view but don't care about having a beach to swim on, the Aston Papakea is the place for you.
The Aston has two pools, one heated, one not and two hot tubs. Plenty of BBQs around the pools and a lovely view from the oceanfront units. However, we tried to go to the beach to swim, only to find out that there is not a beach in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms have beautiful views. Some of the units have been updated, the one we stayed in ha...

We rented unit A209 for a week through vrbo. The resort itself is well maintained and clean. My kids enjoyed the putting green and shuffleboard. The pool was average and very chlorinated-too much. Staff was friendly. Not real beach in front of resort but a little reef in front for snorkling. Our unit was not a resort owned so if there was an issue, we had to call the property manager. Grocery store with multiple restaurants across the street, as well as an ABC store close. Appears to bean older crowd in general, some families, may have been time of year. Bbqs available at pool, we didn't use but looked nice. Would stay again.

Room Tip: 1st floor units seem to have a lot of foot traffic-looks like not a lot of privacy. We had oceanfron...

We stayed from 12/17 to 01/09 2014, Papakea is great for families, we enjoyed the pool by day and the hot tub by night, Great Place to be when you are not at the beaches or tours. My husband like the BBQ by the pool, grab some fresh fish a cook it outside. It does not get much better then this!!!

We stayed at a 1-bedroom ocean front unit. Unit was smallish for a family of 4, but clean, functional and friendly staff. There is washer, dryer, full kitchen in the unit and plenty of grills by the pool. The daily DVD rental is a life saver for day trips in the car with kids, although it comes with a stiff resort fee.

The location is convenient. There's not much of a beach but the snorkel was very good right in front of the resort...there's a shallow area protected by a barrier as well as a variety of sea life. We tried to go to Kaanapali beach and Napili beach but parking proved too much of a hassle, and we discovered the snorkel was excellent right at our own resort.

There's a really good fresh fish market nearby, where you can get lunch boxes to go for your day trips. Also a really good Chinese food place next door.

In short, not an upscale place, but it has all you need.
