    Currently staying in unit # 1119, a 1-bedroom premium ocean view. Based on reviews we were somewhat nervous about what the condition of the room would be. This unit is just great for our purposes! It’s large, airy & has a decent amount of storage even though a significant number of drawers & closets are locked off for the owner. The unit is somewhat updated with granite counters in the kitchen & bath, decent appliances & sufficient pots, pans, & utensils for most cooking purposes. On the other hand, the living room furniture is old style tropical rattan and not very comfortable. I’m also not a big fan of the carpet in the living room & bedroom, even though it seems clean. Although this isn’t a 5-star unit, everything is clean, and the bed is comfortable. The OUTSTANDING part of our stay has been the staff. A few things here and there have needed repair & all it took to resolve each issue was a quick call to the front desk. Unbelievably great, TIMELY service. Some of the other things I like are the attention to security, how immaculate the grounds are, & the quick access to the beach & beachwalk. We are glad we rented through Aston rather than directly from an owner, as we appreciate the daily housekeeping & that toilet paper, paper towels, & hand, dish & dishwasher soap are provided (unlike most condos we’ve rented.)

    Beautiful, large, airy condominium with excellent view. Every amenity you can think of in the unit. Ever changing view each day of the ocean and Black Rock point, and mountain view provided beautiful rainbows during short, misty showers. Enjoyed our stay and will return.

    The Aston was very nice- great beach access with a really nice partial view of the ocean from a small balcony! Each unit is privately owned so the decor probably differs from room to room. Towel service at the pool was really nice! We would stay here again, though I think it’s a little less fancy then some of the neighboring hotels. It was great to have our own small kitchen!

    DO NOT RENT EITHER OF THESE UNITS. I rented both of these units for a week, for my wife and I and for my son and his girlfriend. One of the primary reasons for staying at a beach front condo/hotel is that we like to leave our balcony door open at all times to hear the ocean waves and feel the ocean breezes. Needless to say, it is also very enjoyable to sit on the balcony and enjoy this experience. However, this side of the condo building abuts up against “The Whaler Village”, which includes a number of restaurants and retail shops directly below. Though we were well above the outdoor mall (9th floor – Units 963 and 965), we could not hear the ocean, at all, because of the constant (24/7) din of the ventilation systems from the businesses below. It was lovely hearing birds chirping at 6:15am but they were interrupted almost every morning by trucks, backing up to make their deliveries to the businesses below. We have stayed in the Whaler Resort, three or four times previously, including a stay several floors directly these two units. (We’ve always loved The Whaler). We have never experienced this. Upon checking out, I was asked by a front desk staff member about our stay. I explained how awful the sound was and that we had never encountered that before at the Whaler. The staff member explained that a number of trees, between our condo building and the restaurants/shops next door had been removed, because they blocked some of the view for the lower units. However, now, there is nothing muffling the noise from the ventilation systems below. The only remedy is to stay on the north side of Tower 2 or either side of Tower 1. This noise factor should be disclosed to potential guests staying in units on the south side of Tower 2 and the unit should be heavily discounted because of it. Otherwise, you will be paying a premium amount of money for a far less than satisfactory experience. Note: I should mention that aside from the noise issue on the south side of Tower 2, I would give the Whaler an excellent rating.

    Stunning location - those Hawaiian sunsets are truly something else. Rooms are ridiculously well equipped, made for an enjoyable stay being able to prepare meals in the room as the restaurants on offer int he area all sold the same food. The hotel also has a BBQ area, which was fabulous. The pool is right next the beach - best of both worlds. Staff could not have been more accommodating. Would definitely recommend a stay if you're heading to Maui.
