Great overall - very responsive and very polite staff. Love the location, grounds are well maintained and everyone is really nice. Having stayed there 7 times (and plan to keep coming back), can say that some units are better than others, but every unit has been nice and the oceanfront units have amazing views - in the winter months, it's like being on a dawn till dusk whale watching cruise. We prefer a firm mattress, but the unit in our most recent stay was a bit soft for us.

This resort is immaculate. The grounds are beautiful, the pool and hot tub are clean and well-maintained, the grills are clean and well-maintained the staff friendly. Our particular unit was a little outdated, but you forget about it because the rest of the place is so gorgeous. Would definitely recommend this resort and would come back again.
Maui Still a Jewel

We went on our annual anniversary trip to Maui and found it as beautiful and relaxing as ever. It was difficult to see some of the ruins from the fire it's our hope that all will be restored for the people. The weather was perfect and the ocean was slightly warm, wonderful for early evening toe-dipping walks. The Aston Papakea is a very relaxing, beachfront condo facility. It's very clean and the rooms are spacious.
Great place to stay

Have stayed at the Papakea yearly over the past 10 years. Well kept grounds and amenities that suit us. We are a senior couple and don’t require a lot of entertainment other than to be away from the snow and cold. Resort has two swimming pools and two hot tubs that are well kept. One thing that we enjoy is that there is no beach! There is lawn to a sea wall and the resort provides chaise lounges where we sit/lay and read and watch the whales. We usually go for 6 weeks, late Jan to Early Mar. There are two large bbq areas for tenants with several gas bbqs each. Close to shopping including groceries, farmer’s market and a 10 min walk to car rental. We plan on returning and have a booking for the next two years.

Our party of four stayed in unit G302. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony and master bedroom. The unit was very clean and very roomy. It was easy to get to and from it and our car in the parking lot. Very well situated in Lahaina, within walking distance of several places to eat and shop. In fact, the back gate of the property leads to an ABC store, which came in very handy. The resort had some nice activities for families, e.g., Lei making and Mai Tai night. We enjoyed ourselves.
