Upon arrival at the aston at papakea in lahaina, we were informed that an extra surprise $10 a day fee would be added to our bill so they could deliver newspapers to us, we could do movie rentals from machines behind the lobby, activities on the property, etc. It was not an optional fee and this was NOT disclosed to...

Aloha, I am responding as this guest just missed it when Orbitz confirms the $10 a day resort fee and the guest confirms it. We have the lowest resort fee in west maui many resorts are $35 and you do not get daily paper, coffee everyday, access to unlimited DVD's and more for the $10. All resorts do bug spraying...

This was our first visit to Maui, and what a great decision we made to stay in Papakea. I started hunting around the resorts in Kaanapali. The obvious choice based on reviews were to go for Kaanapali shores or Beach club, but luckily the booking deals for these didn’t went through and then we went for Papakea as suggested by...

I'm sitting on my lanai, listening to the birds and watching the ocean. Out of curiousity I started reading reviews and for the life of me I can't figure out the reason for that last bunch of negative reviews! We booked our trip through Priceline and I based my decision largely on the mostly positive reviews I had read in...

We stayed 3 nights in a beautifully decorated, 3rd-floor, ocean-front unit over the Memorial Day weekend. (I think it was E301.) It was a corner unit that had windows facing the pool area, a sliding-glass door facing the ocean and a wrap-around lanai. We booked directly with Aston, although the condo is privately owned. The daily maid service included replacement...

I recently stayed here with my 19 year old granddaughter for a week. We both had a great time. I chose Papakea because I had stayed here many years ago. It was great then too. I'm pretty sure it was called by some people, Peaceful Papakea, at that time. I chose it because I wanted to come and go as...

Let's start by noting what IS okay with Papakea! The views are terrific, we needed to upgrade to a different room as ours had some "plumbing" issues, so the new room faced the ocean. The grounds are well maintained and the putting greens are lovely (even though you need to pay $$ for the putter and ball which is puzzling...

Aloha, I read and respond to negative reviews so I know what the general traveling public feels and thinks so we can manage more affectively.
