Aston Mahana at Kaanapali
Ranked #5 of 31 Hotels in Lahaina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We loved the access to nice beach, hot tub and comfortable, spacious condo we had - 2 bedroom. It was very nice to have daily maid service. Beautiful views from the lanai on 9th floor - enjoyed wonderful meals there. Kitchen could have had more utensils/glasses.
What we didn't like was all the up-sell from the concierge and welcome meeting. We asked for local recommendations that were not nearly as good as she presented.
Front desk was not very friendly.
Lots to do in this area.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean front views which is awesome!

I visited this hotel in April with my husband to attend a friend's wedding. The room wasn't the most modern of hotels, but it felt like home and I was properly relaxed whilst staying there. The little kitchen was perfect to make meals and there was all the utensils and such provided that we could need. To be honest, we didn't use the pool area as our friends were next door in the Honua Kai and we were cheeky and sat with them most days (as that pool area is incredible). Or we were down at the beach. You can't swim directly in front of the hotel, but you can walk about 100 yards in either direction. Might annoy you if you are lazy, but it's not a big deal at all. I loved the DVD machine that was available in the lobby. Loads of new films and they kept us occupied after the sun went down (when we weren't out drinking). It was lovely to sleep with the door open to hear the waves all night long. Being so close the ocean is a real perk of this hotel and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! Amazing trip!

Room Tip: Every room is good as they all have beautiful views of the ocean.

Aloha and mahalo for recommending the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali to all of the readers of Trip Advisor and for joining us for your amazing trip all the way from England. We're happy to hear that the fully equipped kitchen allowed you to feel like you were at home and then the spectacular oceanfront views available from every unit here of beautiful sunsets and the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai reminded you that you were on the stunning island of Maui.
All of us here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali are waiting to show you the Aloha Spirit again on your next visit.

Mahalo, Brian

This was our fourth time here in 16 years and each time has been great. This is not a hotel and we have never used the restaurant next door so we can't comment on it. The pool is not a resort style pool and will disappoint you if that is what you are looking for.

This place is for people who want an unsurpassed view of the neighboring islands, and the whales and dolphins and turtles from your room. A great long beach right in front where you can swim, snorkel, paddleboard, kayak, sunbathe (although it is usually windier and a little cooler than Lahaina). A short drive from Lahaina where you can eat, drink or embark on an adventure (Lanai trip, Molokini cruise or a sunset cruise).

We ate dinner out one time on this trip and we ate great. The poolside barbeque allowed us to grill steak, fish and chicken. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast, lunch and dinner. The patio was perfect to eat or drink while you watch the sun go down.

We drove all the way around the road to Hana (The road is passable but narrow, very narrow at parts), the stretch past Hana is amazing. We drove to the blowhole about 30 minutes north of here-worth seeing.

One warning-we have always booked through Costco travel. The management company requires the rooms they rent to maintain a certain standard. There are vacation rental by owner units here which are hit and miss and that is where some horror stories come from. They are not decorated well and do not share the same housekeeping. Know what you are booking and make sure you don't get a VRBO.

Stayed there last week. Rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious, location is great. Beach is right out front and pool is very nice. Susan at Expedia took great care of us and did a wonderful job helping us plan out activities for the week including for our next stop of Oahu - highly suggest you talk to her to plan your excursions.

We booked the studio + kitchen and got upgraded to the premium and it fit two people very nicely. The kitchen fridge and microwave came in handy when we had leftovers, fruits, and water. The murphy bed was surprisingly comfortable. The studio was very clean. The ocean view was beautiful and we woke up and slept to the sounds of the waves. The resort fee was only $18/day which is a good deal compared to $40/day at other hotels. It came with free parking and free wifi. We saved so much money. The check in and check out was fast and easy and the staff were always very friendly and were very knowledgeable when asked about stuff on the island. Great snorkeling spot if you walk a little way to kaanapalli beach. Beautiful corals and colorful fish. Will definitely stay here again on our next Maui trip. Front street was only a couple minute drive away. There is a supermarket right around the corner which closes at 12 am or 2 am...I forget. Great location.
