    Just got back yesterday! We stayed for one week in early March as a family of 3 and stayed in room 856. The kitchen was fully stocked, room was clean and spacious, bed was large and amazing! We originally booked a studio but upgraded to a one bedroom and bath which was so worth it with a baby. The unit faces onto the courtyard and you can see the ocean towards black rock and the mountains which was so nice. The lanai was also large and spacious with dining chairs as well as comfy lounge chairs. We didnt have great weather so spent a lot of time there. One thing to note is that in the tower 2 you dont get a lot of sunshine like tower 1 does. The whaler also provided us a clean pack and play for our little baby which we appreciated. The only room for improvement would be the shower which seemed to need a little updating (took awhile to get hot water and sometimes shower and bath would run together so we would get wet when trying to bathe our baby) and the coffee provided but no big deal it didn't affect our stay. There are no restaurants or bars on site so loved that the hotel was so close to whalers village next door with good restaurant options. Lots of parking and staff very friendly. Pool is a little on the cold side and not as lively as other hotels but not a big deal. We didnt spend much time there. I would recommend the whaler to anyone trying to decide. We were contemplating between 2 other hotels but very happy chose this one. Thank you Aston Whaler!

    The resort is conveniently located near Whalers Village. We stayed in Unit 315 for three weeks. The positives: This is a very updated unit. The bathroom has been renovated and has a very nice shower. The unit was clean and had a very nice appearance. The kitchen was also well equipped. There were extras like a beach umbrella, cooler and beach chairs, too. The negatives: The location of the unit is third floor and right next to the elevator. The elevator lobby is open to the outdoors. The entrance to the building is located directly below the elevator lobby. Because we were on a low floor, people in the courtyard and the elevator lobby would YELL at each other at all hours - including late evenings. Sitting on the deck was very unpleasant because of the noise. We had poor weather and spent a little more time on the lanai and in the condo then we normallywould do and we found this very unpleasant. The unit itself was very nice. However, we were not able to unpack (no dresser). For longer stays, we always unpack, so we missed having a dresser. The unit is 5 stars, and it's important to note that the issues are not with the owner but with the the inconsiderate behavior of other guests.

    Once when we got here and informed Rod at the front desk what happened at the last resort he made it a point to get us in earlier to take care of us, Rod made sure we were treated like a Royal family , this Hotel is the very best in everything they have such as beach access , stores to go shopping , the cleaning of the rooms and the whole entire staff were friendly . this will for sure be our next home .

    Nice view and great location

    First the good, then the bad to watch out for. Nice views from the balcony and can't beat the location right on the beach with easy access to beach Blackrock snorkeling is great! Restaurants and shops along the nice long beach path walkway. Now the bad... The reason it's not 5 stars is because if your balcony is on the side of the Whaler that overlooks Whalers Village, the air conditioning units and delivery truck noise from down below drowns out any peaceful enjoyment of the view and balcony. I would consider staying here again but I'd make sure to never stay on that side again.

    Great apartment right on beach next to Whalers Village

    We booked a 1 bedroom 2 bathroom premium apartment which was in tower 1 on the 10th floor. The apartment was one apartment back from the beach front facing Black Rock. The apartment itself had reasonable newer appliances a few years old and was very comfortable. Parking after 6pm underground would fill up quickly and you would have to use the outside car parking. As this is an apartment complex there are quite a few owners cars stored underneath in the carpark. The car spaces were quite big as well. Pool ok in size, but sometimes would be hard to get lounges. We would stay here again with it's location right next to Whalers Village being very handy.
