    Getting remarried at this stage in life is no easy decision. We won't get any award for longest marriage, but we will be returning to Maui for future celebrations and vacations. Plenty to do and a lot more to see.

    Relatively good value for a dated property

    Our group of 9, 8 adults and 1 child, took a family vacation this year in January. We booked 2, 2 bedroom units. They were able to get our rooms right next to each other which was great. The in room washer and dryer is a nice bonus. The location of the property is fine. Just a few minutes drive from Lahaina Town, which is a lot of fun. Also a few minutes from Kapalua which has some nice beaches. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were always met with friendly aloha smiles and greetings. The reason for a 3 rating is the Aston Kaanapali Shores is a dated property. The carpets in our bedrooms were very stained and needed to be replaced. The units needed paint, new trim and caulking. The grounds are well kept but older. Pools are ok but small for a place of this size. The lawn area is a waste. It would be good to expand the main pool and eliminate the grass area. The restaurant staff was very nice but the food not so much. There are no servers that make their way around the pool area to help you as in other higher end resorts. The shops are ok but an ABC store is right outside the gate and much cheaper. Food trucks next door were fun. There is no beach, it's rocks, but you can walk a few yards and get a small strip of sand. Better to drive to one of the other beaches nearby. Bottom line is the team does their very best to make your stay pleasant at a property that needs to be upgraded. You will want to sleep here but spend most of your time at other places and restaurants which kind of defeats the purpose for a resort experience.

    First time staying at this property and will be returning! Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, rooms were well appointed with a nice kitchen and washer/dryer. The 2 pools and sun lawn are lovely and quiet places to kick back and relax, especially with happy hour!

    We have returned to this wonderful spot a few times and always find the property to be well run with super friendly staff. The gardens are beautifully landscaped including the pool areas. We always feel comfortable and look forward to visiting again.

    Wife and I decided to visit Maui and we stayed at the Aston Kaanapali Shores. What a great decision that was. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and throughout our stay. Every staff that we encountered greeted us with Aloha. Our one bedroom suite was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Full kitchen came in handy for drinks and allowed us to bring back our leftovers from dinner. Warmed it up in our microwave for a midnight snack. It's a great convenience. You can't do that in a typical hotel room. Walking around the ground was also relaxing. Beautifully manicured and clean. Even the groundskeeper were friendly. We had a couple of meals at their Beach Club restaurant and found their prices very reasonable and the food was great. Restaurant staff were also very friendly & helpful with recommendations and they thanked us for dining with them as we walked out. We will definitely return to the Aston Kaanapali Shores when we visit Maui again. It's our home away from home. Mahalo!
