A great Vacationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The pool area is plain compared to the other resorts in the area but after all, who wants to hang around the pool all day anyway. I'd stay there again and I'd recommend the Aston Kaanapali Shores resort to anyone who is looking for a good place to stay at reasonable rates.
Room Updates Comingfrom davewil3
Virtually every resort in Hawaii charges for local and long distance phone access, or they charge a resort fee. Think that's bad - the Manele Bay Resort on Lanai charges $0.75 to call another ROOM.
Nice, but would probably stay elsewhere next timefrom jimmyndebi
Had a fire alarm one evening about 6:30. It was a strange alarm ringing that we have never heard. We were getting onl elevator when we first heard. Went to our room and heard it in our room. We tried to call front desk and operator, no answer. My family doubted that anything was wrong, or that it was a fire alarm. As we went to stairwell we found lots of people angered trying to find out what was going on. There was a securtiy guard that said he didn't know what was going on except an employee burnt popcorn. After talking to another security guard closer to the front desk area, he confirmed that nothing was wrong and said we could go to our rooms. About an hour later, it was announced that nothing was wrong, sorry for the inconvience. Where were the key employees when this happened?? A lot of people didn't even realize that it was a fire alarm because it sounded so strange. It was also a general feeling that most people would have probably slept through it.
The restaurant was great for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was so-so.
Beach was nice to have, not best swimming beach, but great for family activities.
Generally I think it is a pretty good choice for a condo, but would probably try staying someplace else the next time. We had stayed at another property that is very close and were unable to get a room there this trip.

Charged for everything--local calls, nine dollars a day to park! I'd look elsewhere.

The bathroom needed a lock on the door--its locking plate was held on by one loosely hanging screw, the tub needed its hot water source fixed and a new drain plug--which was never put in while we were there. It was left laying on the corner of the tub--right front edge facing the shower head.Some tiles were chipped or missing and were painted over to try to hide this. Fixtures needed replacing--they were badly tarnished and old looking. The showere head was gross looking--some mold on its holed head. Cleaned this ourselves with bleach.The dishwasher needed replacing--it was badly rusted and corroded inside, also it had broken trim on the lower access panel hanging down.Silverwear provided was in need of replacing also--some rust spots were on its "stainless" surfaces.
When inquiring about upgrading to a better quality room the first day we were there, we were told to check back and/or the front desk would call us after checking with the day manager. No one ever called. We checked back daily. but recieved the runaround for 5 days. They finally had a lady tell us at the front desk that we could upgrade for the last 5 days of our stay for an additional $500.00. We declined.
It seems all the money is being spent on the external amenities--grounds were impeccable, building outside was recently repainted, and a fabulous lobby. Two very nice regular type pools--one near the ocean and one in the middle of the garden area. A hot tub adjoined the pool nearest the ocean.Plentiful sunning chairs and beach towels were supplied at no charge. A beach side activity center was easier to use than the lobby area one.
One big gripe--paying $9.00 per day just to park there. After charging what they charge for the rooms--that was "outrageous"!! Would not recommend staying there. This was our 5th trip to Maui, so we can definitely tell you that there are better deals out there rated at the same 3 stars.
It was O.K.from A TripAdvisor Member
I was disapointed in the place because it has potential, but it is very run down. Some simple updates would add a nicer feeling to the stay there. If you are on a budget, and don't plan to stay in your room that much, I'd say it's fine. If you are used to a nice place, or need to stay in the room while your children are napping etc.. I would strongly recomend staying somewhere else.
I never plan to stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Lahaina
Alii Kula Lavender Gardens Would highly recommend the Lavender Gardens in Upcountry Maui, the Alii Kula Lavender Gardens! Approximately 30 minutes from the Kahului Airport or 40 minutes from Kaanapali area. The Garden Tour is just $10 & well worth it! If time permits, the crater is a couple hours from the Gardens!
Surfing We surfed with Royal Hawaiian...we almost thought we were going to be surfing with a 6 and 7 year old...and were 24. Make sure they put you in you age range. KC was a great instructer.
Kapalua airport is the closest The main airport on Maui, Kahului, is about 50 minute drive away. Ok if you're renting a car, but pricey by taxi. Kapalua Airport, is just a short distance from Kaanapali Shores. So if you're arriving via Honolulu, choose Kapalua. If you have a direct flight from the mainland to Maui, you may have no choice but Kahului.
