The pictures do not do this place justice. The grounds are beautiful. Upon arrival we were offered an upgrade from an oceanview to an oceanfront condo. It was breathtaking. We couldn't have had a nicer stay. The Whaler has rules about noise and smoking that you have to sign which gave us peace of mind about the care they provide...

What an amazing surprise - beautiful property and pool, right on beach while watching whales from your balcony. Full kitchen, free laundry, valet, towels and chair service on beach, easy access to multiple restaurants.

The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach in Maui, is one of our favorite places to stay. We have been there over 10 times and always want to return. While this is considered a hotel, it really is a 4 star condo development with a full kitchen, dining room, 2 baths in the one bedroom units , and fantastic ocean view from...

My husband and I stayed at the Aston Whaler right on Kaanapali Beach. We rented this unit from the owner on vrbo. We were in unit 514 for 10 days 4/23 to 5/3 and it was even nicer than the pictures if that is possible! This was a studio completely modern , very clean, comfortable bed, beautiful shower and bath...

My husband and I are staying here for 4 nights before heading back to a New Zealand winter. We had originally booked a garden view studio, but were pleasantly surprised on check-in to be offered free upgrade to garden and ocean view (after we declined to pay upgrade.) Our upgrade is a one bedroom, two bathroom very spacious apartment with...

Best place to stay in Kaanapali. Short walk to snorkeling at Black Rock. First class exercise room with new equipment and weights. Close to restaurants and Whaler Village shops. Excellent view of the beach. Nice pool, lounge chairs and towel service. Only negative is that the unit's furniture is old; but, not a worry for us since we spent most...

We stayed in a studio ocean view in the tower closest to Whalers Village. It had everything we expected with kitchen and a decent view from our balcony of ocean and mountains. Whilst we would have loved even better views to capture those amazing sunsets and the majesty of the mountains behind us, we didn't really want to be sitting...

The location of this hotel was the best. Steps to one of the best beaches in Maui. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Only downside was that the cliental was a little bit older. Me and my wife are in our 30s and I don't think we saw another couple that was younger than 55. Otherwise would...

Normally, service is pretty much the same everyone we have been but The Whaler has gone above and beyond! From the sliced fresh pineapple waiting for us in the room, to the complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates sent up for our special occasion. They have done just a little more to make this trip wonderful for us. Shout out...

As others have said, this is a great property in a great location. But, check out the location of your condo. We were in the building that faces the mall and its garbage units. It was noisy and though we had an "ocean view" as paid for if, you looked to the right, the view was largely unappealing and disappointing.
