“Exceptional Value and Best Views on Kaanapali!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

My wife and I originally stayed here for our honeymoon 4 years ago. We overwhelmed by the beauty of the location and the quality of the staff at that time and are glad to report nothing has changed!! Whether you stay in a simple efficiency or one of the 2 bedroom units the views are all ocean, all the time. The floor to ceiling windows along the ocean front simply bring views right to every part of the condos. The amenities in the units we have stayed in are top notch and as nice as we have in our own home. This property has been around a long time so if you are looking for large, spacious grounds with resort folks running around it is probably not for you. If you want quiet, accessible, direct beach front with few crowds and unencumbered views of the ocean and sister islands Moloka'i and Lanai on a spacious lanai then this is the place for you. We like smaller more private properties that offer good amenities without those amenities intruding on our private time or ability to enjoy property. The Mahana is surrounded by large resorts with 200 meter walks to the beach past multiple pools and all the folks that go with that. Here you are literally 20 feet off the beach and it is rarely if ever crowded. Perfect couples retreat with great walks along the beach front trail to Whaler's Village and good snorkeling right out your door. Relax and enjoy!!

Room Tip: Upper floors and the 2 room units offer 180 degree views with larger lanais because the sit on the c...

We stayed in unit 914. It was beautifully decorated and, on the 9th floor, had amazing views of the other islands. The sunrise/sunsets were to die for! The furnishings were very comfortable and had evey amenity imaginable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the onsite Expedia concierge made planning excursions a breeze and saved us money. We had a wonderful time and would strongly recommend this facility and particularly this unit.

We had a great time and the room accomodations were great. Full kitchen with granite counter, etc. Very spacious and great view with ocean front room. Staff were helpful although we didn't get our room on a lower floor as requested.
The problem with the hotel is in the design. Durng our visit in September, sun rose directly behind the building and set directly in front. Sounds great right? As soon as the sun got to front windows, living room began to heat up. Even with curtains closed and a/c on, room was 80+ degrees. Had to keep curtains closed all afternoon and evening until sun set, meaning there was no view during those timesl

The hotel was in a pretty good location. At the end of the beachwalk. 2 miles from Whaler's Village and close to Kaanapali Beach. Kaanapali beach has rough waters, end up with sand in your swim suit/trunks you cannot seem to get out. We had an ocean view room with balcony. We saw a good size turtle one morning from the sixth floor. Room outdated. Carpets old and dirty. Room dusty. Never unpacked my suitcase since I never felt comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Everything on Maui is expensive so not sure how well this hotel compares to others. We stayed hear because we did not have to pay for parking, internet, etc. Lots of hotels will charge you for anything they can find to. I would recommend staying near Kapalua Beach. More residential. Great beach for snorkeling and swimming. Water is much calmer.

Just stayed 8 evenings at the Aston Mahana. I travel for business and really get claustrophobic in a typical hotel room. But the Aston Mahana is 1 and 2 bedroom condo units so it feels more like home with full kitchens, living rooms, and appliances. Every room has a full view of the ocean and all of the sister islands. It doesn't have the glitz of the bigger resorts with shops and restaurants, etc. but if you want to feel like you are at home while vacationing then I highly recommend this hotel. Rooms were quiet and we rarely heard anyone else. Grocery stores and restaurants are all walking distance. You definitely need a rental car to explore the island from here. Would definitely return here if given the opportunity.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the ocean.

Just back and already thinking about our return next year. What a place. Were fortunate to have our request for a lower floor (2,3 or 4) not only arranged, but that the very unit we inquired about was available and reserved for us (# 206). The owners have done a wonderful job with decorating and upgrades. Fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, granite kitchen island, superb use of mirrors so practically any direction you face you see the ocean...something you can't escape seeing anyway since you are essentially only steps away. Relaxing lenai, comforable king bed, large bathroom with a classy turtle included in the tile...likely in honor of the big resident turtle that we actually got to see close up during a swim about 100 yards north of our unit,

Boardwalk starts just steps away and within 100 yards to the south is Duke's Restaurant a great dining spot. Several more restaurants also 100 yards away to the north. Farther down the boardwalk are other great eating locations Westin, Castaway, etc. If you are up to it you can walk to Wahler villiage in about 45 minutes, or turnaround at "Black Rock" (also reachable walking the beach, though a little longer because you are slowed by the sand and the gentle wave action). We walked on average 3-4 miles per day...a most pleasant walk and we easly shared the boardwalk with joggers, parents with children in strollers etc.

All staff are most courteous and helpful...they can't do enough for you. Great ammenities....industrial B'Bques for grilling, although we learned that a rare tenderloin only needs about 3 1/2 minutes per side as the heating is very efficient. Most meals were restaurants, although we did greatly enjoy two meals of our own making on our Lenai thus creating our own little restaurant. Breakfast was generally lengthy as we lingered over our coffee, fruit and cerial enjoing the view and the sound of the ocean. Very modern and convenient grocery store ("Times") a short walk (5 minutes) or drive if your grocery list is a long one in 2 minutes (just across the street).

Easy WIFI / Internet connection.

A little easier to find on the second trip as we were lookinig for the "Pink Hotel" that was our landmark. Best to consult your map carefully or call the Aston desk who are most helpful with the cross streets and the correct left hand turn to take off of Highway 30 that gets you to the entrance to the shared driveway to the Aston.

Bottom line is that this is an absolutely superb hotal on Maui.

This is a beautiful property. The view from our lanai was stunning. We stayed in a studio apt. It had everything we need, kitchen, washer and dryer, soaps. The $15 resort fee was worth every penny with good wifi and free parking.

bmc11, General Manager at Aston Mahana at Kaanapali, responded to this review, 4 November 2013
Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali for your time on the best island in the world, Maui. The stunning views you described are available from every single unit here at the Mahana, whether it be studio, one or two bedroom and also every unit features a fully equipped kitchen and washer'/dryer for the convenience of our guests.
You are correct that there is no charge for both parking and the wi-fi in all of our units and with the amenity fee we also include complimentary use of the in room safe, daily replenishment of coffee/tea and laundry soap plus the normal hotel room amenities in addition to daily newspaper and the unlimited use of the DVD Now kiosk in the lobby for movies and games.
Our second to none location steps from the quieter end of northern Kaanapali beach is what allows us to offer such stunning oceanfront views of various marinelife, much of which is attracted to the reef fronting our property, colorful rainbows and the beautiful sunsets which appear right between the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai across the way.

We very much look forward to your next visit and hope it will be soon.

Mahalo, Brian
