We were there in mid December. Booked the property on the property website, not with an owner because we wanted to have housekeeping and the like while there. We booked a "premium" studio condo because we heard that the non-premium rooms were out-dated and not as nice. We definitely loved our room. See pictures below. The view from the Lanai...

We stayed in room 856. It was clean, quiet and very well equipped. The view of the ocean and sunrise/sunset was beautiful. The Whaler Village is going thru construction so we heard little noise from that. Grounds are beautiful, very well manicured and the staff was always friendly and extremely courteous. Many koi fish in the pond which you can...

Our go-to in Maui. Usually rent privately thru vrbo but have booked thru hotel as well. Great location on Kaanapali Beach with awesome beach out the door. Pool area small and intimate. Right next door to Whalers Village shopping and the restaurants of Hula Grill and Leilanis. Centrally located.

The resort had chairs that were comfortable or some days we rented a cabana which was extremely comfortable. The room size was nice ( we had a premium studio), it came with a small...

Our family (2 adults and 3 teenagers) rented a 2BR/2BA condo in the Whaler just after the New Year's holiday in January 2017. The Whaler is a fairly nice hotel - two towers built probably in the 1980's perched on the edge of a big, gorgeous beach with phenomenal views of the ocean and the majestic peaks of Lanai and...

We booked this hotel based on location, amenities, and it was the only hotel on the side of Maui that had a full sized kitchen. There was construction on the front desk when we stayed here but it didn't cause any problems. The sounds of the construction site occurred during normal hours of the day, but we were not in...

Stayed at the Whaler Resort for 9 wonderful days. Having a fully equipped condo was wonderful and a private Lanai overlooking beautiful Kaanapali beach was beautiful. Amenities were very close by with Whalers Village next door. Best grocery store we found was a short drive away in Lahaina....Foodland. Tip....rent condo from North Tower if possible.

My wife and I love Maui! We have been spending at least 2 weeks on the Island every year, for many years now.
