“A wonderful time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Recently had a wonderful time on Maui at Aston Kaanapali Shores. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The unit that we stayed in was immaculate and had a spectacular ocean view. There were many activities and wonderful restaurants near by. The shopping was great also. Would highly recommend this property as a destination resort.

We spent a week at the Kaanapali Shores to celebrate our 40th anniversary and it was perfect. The hotel staff made sure that our every need was met and the location was perfect. Our room had a beautiful view of the ocean and was clean, comfortable and equipt with a full kitchen. There was a copy of the local newspaper on our doorstep each morning. The grounds and beach area were well tended and landscaped and there were plenty of lounges for everyone. Meals at the Beach Club were delicious and the wait-staff were cheerful and made us feel like they enjoyed serving us. A free photo opportunity was offered and we took advantage of this to have our anniversary picture taken at sunset. Ian was a great photographer and did a wonderful job of taking many shots until he got one that we just loved. We would definitely stay here again and will make an effort to reccomend it to friends who head for Maui.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view if available We stayed on the 8th floor and could see right over to the island...

Although it is one of the original hotels built in Kaanapali it is very well maintained.
The Gardens were beautiful and as many of the rooms are privately owned we were lucky
enough to get a beautifully renovated Oceanside room.
There is a nice little beach side cafe at the front of the resort which serves great food, has friendly happy staff and a great little bar to hang out at.
The beach and water were wonderful with a spectacular view of Molokai.
The only downfalls the hotel seemed to posses were that the cool little bar closed
at 9pm, probably due to the elderly residents and the reception was under staffed.

Room Tip: Room. No 176 its the best! Beautiful Interior and right next to the beach.

The Aston Kaanapali Shores was a great choice and and a good location.We stayed five days and we had a one bedroom facing the ocean.The hotel is about 45 min drive from the airport so you should use the shuttle which is about $32 one way a person or rent a car if you like driving on mountain roads which I don't,Hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly but the only thing I didn't like was our bedroom was a little smokey but other than that it was great.Two pools and two hot tubs,club house type restaurant by the pool with free entertainment at night.The good thing about this hotel is that their is a strip malls across the street from the hotel with a Subway,Pizza place,Mexican restaurant and the best of all a hug grocery store which we stocked our kitchen with a few things when we didn't got out to eat.Tours to take is Road to Hana,Helicopter tour,Sunset dinner tour and the Sub tour all cost $85 and up but well worth the price.You will spend some money on this trip but for the wonderful time you will have I wouldn't have it any other way.

Mahalo Maui.

Room Tip: Room facing the ocean is what you want.

We stayed 10 nights at Kaanapali Shores and we were very pleased. Neither my husband or I had ever been to Hawaii, and this resort was exactly what we had always imagined Hawaii would be like. It's right on the beach (the beach directly in front of the hotel is fairly small but you can easily walk a few hundred feet to a roomier area). We had reserved one of the less expensive rooms, but upon check-in they gave us a free upgrade to an oceanview suite. The room was very nice with a full kitchen and spacious living area, plus laundry facilities in the suite. The view from the lanai was spectacular! Everything was clean and the lobby and grounds are beautiful. There is a grocery store right across the street. The parking lot was sometimes rather full and the resort is located on the far north end of the Kaanapali area, so you have to drive a ways to downtown Lahaina where many of the activities are located (shopping, restaurants, Old Lahaina Luau, etc.). If not for the location, I would have rated it even higher.

Room Tip: Pay extra for an oceanview room....it's worth it.

People have shared some horror stories of this place. I have no idea where their room was, but ours was on the 9th floor/penthouse and we had no problems whatsoever. We had a kitchenette one bedroom suite. It overlooked the courtyard and the ocean. There was not one bug in the room ever! The room was always cleaned. We got new towels every day. The bed needed some updating. It was a king size with two twin mattresses as the top mattress. That sucked, not gonna lie. But other than that there was no problems with noise, dirtiness, or bugs. I was very, very happy with our room. Believe me I have an eye for bugs and dirt and there was none of that. I was pleasantly happy with the hotel. Would definitely stay here again. I'm guessing the lower the floor, the more bugs there will be considering it's an island and there are bound to be bugs, just sayin!

Room Tip: Get a room as high up a floor as possible. Get an Oceanside or oceanview. You will get beautiful su...

Christmas in Hawaii was just heavenly here, compared to the snowy Midwest. The 2 bedroom unit was ideal for the family, allowing for privacy. The bathrooms were nice and clean. This was the perfect, relaxing vacation.
