Aston Mahana at Kaanapali
Ranked #5 of 31 Hotels in Lahaina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We had a room on the 7th floor - in the building that had no construction at the time. Our first room was a studio. It was dirty and not comfortable for the 10 nights we were there for. After our first night we paid to upgrade to a one bedroom. Best decision ever. Beautiful room, lanai, kitchen, laundry was awesome and comfortable living room. You can not get a better view. Sure, you can pay for ocean front or view, but why, when you can pay for a too based on its size and be guaranteed to get ocean front, like 50 feet from the ocean. We watched movies late at night after we came back to the room from a full day of exploring. We loved that. Greg at the front desk was great!! We will be back!

Room Tip: High floor is best

Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali, we realize there are many fine properties on the beautiful island of Maui however agree that our spot just steps from the quieter end of northern Kaanapali beach is truly fabulour. Due to our location every single unit here, studio, one or two bedroom, offers spectacular oceanfront views and also the convenience of fully equipped kitchens and washer/dryer.
We're thrilled to hear that Greg and the rest of our staff was able to help you to get the unit you wanted and exceed all of your expectations.

We appreciate your comments which help us to improve everyday and all of us here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali hope you can join us again soon.

Mahalo, Brian

This hotel was our last stop and it was amazing!! We decided to spend a little bit more on accommodation and we were not disappointed!! No better way to end the day than to spend it on the balcony watching the world and many sunsets go by! Would definitely recommend to others!

We stayed here July 1-15,2014.It was my 4th trip to Maui,first time here. We will definitely stay here again! The pool is small but ocean front. We only used the pool once, the ocean is right there and much more fun. The staff is very helpful,the grounds well maintained. The location is fantastic. You are walking distance to a few restaurants,grocery stores and Dukes for happy hour. A great beach,snorkeling just a 3 min walk from the resort. You can't snorkel,swim immediately in front due to shallow water and rocks but it truly is just a 2-3 min walk to swim/snorkel area. All units are ocean front. Palm trees are planted in front so if you can be on floors 7 or higher you will have the best views.The bus stops at the end of the driveway;we took it to Whaler's Village on several occasions. You will truly enjoy staying here.

Room Tip: Stay on floor 7 or higher for best views.

Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali and we're thrilled to hear that our helpful staff and fantastic location steps from the beach enabled you to have a great vacation. We're also happy to hear that you chose us on your fourth visit to Maui and very much hope when you return you will come back to see us again.
The reef in front of our property is one of the reason our guests are treated to views of marine life, including the sea turtles daily and seasonally the humpback whales, in addition to of course the spectacular oceanfront views of beautiful sunsets and the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai.
Mahalo for the recommendation to the visitors here at Trip Advisor and all of us here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali look forward to showing you the Aloha Spirit on your fifth visit to Maui.

We stayed here (family of 5) June 2014. We enjoyed the two bedroom condo. One bedroom with a king size beds in one bedroom, the other bedroom had 2 twin beds. One of the kids slept on the pull out in the living room. Up to date kitchen with granite counter tops, fully equipped kitchen. Each day we were given a coffee package to the coffee pot in the kitchen. Some soap for the washing machine also. This was a nice touch. The ceiling to floor windows were beautiful! There isn't swimming in front of the condos, but a short walk the beach was perfect, and not crowded. There was painting going while we were there. scaffolding was a bit distracting. I would go back here in a heart beat!

Aloha and mahalo for your comments on your recent stay at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali. We're very happy to hear that your family enjoyed their vacation and that you will be returning to see us again. Rest assured, although we do have a exterior building enhancement project going on we are making every effort to keep our guests as far away as possible so that they can enjoy themselves and relax as you did.
Every unit here, studio, one or two bedroom, has a fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer for convenience and of course the same spectacular oceanfront views due to our second to none locations steps from the quieter end of northern Kaanapali beach.
We're thrilled to hear that we were able to exceed your expectations here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali and look forward to showing you the Aloha Spirit again soon when you come to see us again.

Just got back
Absolutely loved it . The views are amazing . Watched the Sunset everyday . Service was friendly.
Though the Beach is rocky but walk either side for 2- 3 minutes and you hit a great beach.

We loved the condo and would recommend it highly.
Note: the Pool is slightly small so if that is your considerations then please weigh that in. Though for the views , the service and great number of grills , it does more than cover up for anything.
WE were on the 4th floor , did have a few trees but that didnt take away from the view. Infact enhanced it .

Room Tip: All rooms are " OCEAN FRONT " , great views !!!!

If you want to get away from it all and enjoy peace & quiet - amazing snorkeling and peaceful beaches - this resort is PERFECT!! If you want the hustle & bustle of a busy resort this is NOT for you! Best to just watch the sunsets from the Lanai. We saw a school of dolphins on several occasions and during the winter, it was the best place to whale-watch! Absolutely, the best. Also near-by is Okazuya Deli - former exec. chef of Mama's Fish House -- and if you're looking for excellent takeaway to bring back to the condo & enjoy your own, this place has it all. I wish I invested in one of these condos 10 yrs ago!

The owners condo (booked via vrbo) was fully stocked -- had everything we could think of....

The pool is small - and the beach right outside is not good for sitting out. However - the coral and reefs are just as good as Molokini Crater... we swam with a sea turtle 2 days in a row!!

Aloha and mahalo for visiting the Mahana at Kaanapali all the way from the United Kingdom. We're very happy to hear that the peace and quiet provided by our second to none location steps from the northern end of Kaanapali beach enabled you to have a relaxing vacation. The oceanfront views provided from every unit here at the Mahana are spectacular as you described with the beautiful sunsets, various marine life and neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai seen from the floor to ceiling windows and private lanai.

Mahalo again for choosing the Mahana and for taking the time to provide your comments.

My husband and I just stayed here (July 14-19, 2014) with our 14 year old daughter and her friend. We stayed in unit #215 (via VRBO.com, listing # 320513) and had a blast! This unit was perfect for us. The buildings are a bit older and there were some renovations going on during my stay, but over all the unit, view, amenities and location made the renovations such a minor detail, it was not an issue. We were blown away by the views not only in our unit but by the pool and BBQ area. They were AMAZING!! This resort doesn't have any of the frills you may be used to at the bigger resorts, it's really more of a chill, laid back vibe. It's a short 10 minute drive to the Whalers Village restaurants and shopping area as well as Black Rock Beach (at the Sheraton). We stopped at COSTCO after landing and we able to BBQ and cook almost every night. There is also a "Times" supermarket across the street although it's very expensive. If you can, drive over to "Safeway" over by Whaler's Village. Saves on food costs and you are able to have some cocktails at the pool without breaking the bank. Also, if you are looking for a nice dinner out, you can walk over to the Honua Kai Resort & Spa (5 minute walk) and have a nice dinner or cocktails. If you go across the street from the Aston Mahana there is a breakfast place called SlappyCakes. This is fun to go to if you have kids. It's a "make your own pancakes" place.
Overall, we had a great time and hope to be back to the Mahana!

Room Tip: Unit 215 is beautiful!
