Which is better, the Aston Kaanapali Shores? Mahana?

Our condo is changing rates for the better, but I don't know if we can take advantage of them because we already booked.

But We can get better rates at a next door Aston Property that is all oceanfront. (Mahana) That one would be less expensive than the one we have currently. It would be considered an upgrade, though in the Costco Travel Section, it's a lesser hotel.

(Moderate plus, versus Moderate)

I am very conrfused. If they won't honor their current rate, should I move to the Mahana to get a better rate?

THey say there is some construction next door to the Mahana, but it is an all ocean front condo. Is it terrible?

Aloha!

BOTH properties are nice.

Kaanapali Shores has an on-site restaurant and more extensive, pretty grounds. They also have little shops and a prettier lobby.

Mahana offers you some of the best oceanfront views on the island. So, if a breathtaking view is what you want, you should go with the Mahana. If you want the ability to go down to the lobby and eat at a restaurant, then Kaanapali Shores is for you.

I agree that the Mahana is a great property. And to answer your unasked question, go ahead and see if you can get the lower rates. I did the same for my condo this month and the owner said "No problem".

I have to wait til Tuesday to get an answer. If they will not let us change an existiing reservation, I will "upgrade to two bedrooms, ocean view" which would be a "new" order, and as seniors, we get an upgrade to a better view, which are ocean front. THey don't have ocean front one bedrooms. comes out even less than a one bedroom.
