If high rolling is your MO then this place is not for you. However, if you are looking for value and location/proximity at Kaanapali Beach, then this is one you may like. A good vacation is not determined by fanciness of the property alone. In all fairness though take a look at my pics and judge for yourself. I think...

We stayed at the Papakea end October, beginning of November and we loved it! The resort has beautiful landscaping and is very well kept. The staff is very nice and friendly and Dave who is the hotel manager is very helpful with any concerns you may have during your stay. They also have a travel expert right in the reception...

We got this place for a very reasonable price, especially for a beachfront condo on the famous Kaanapali beach, at least that's what I thought. Not sure but either it's located in Northern Kaanapali or another area called Honokowai. Either way the famous part of Kaanapali beach is a couple of miles South. So you're wondering what's the difference? My...

Aloha, I am the Manager of the Aston at Papakea Resort and I like to respond to guests that are not happy whether they booked with Aston or not. The beach here as in many places is full of reefs which are sharp. Most of west Maui is that way and the beach in front of Papakea goes for miles...

Stayed here last in March 2011, 30 year old couple with no kids. Found the resort to be average, rooms were clean, staff was moderately friendly. Parking got expensive. View was nice, easy beach access. Parents and kids crowd. Groceries were convenient across the street. In the end I'd it was clean and quiet, but a little to expensive for...

Aloha, I manage the Aston units at Papakea and I will admit we are a quite property with stunning views. I am perplexed at the guest comment about the parking is expensive as we are one of very few properties that parking is free. Mahalo, Dave Schneider General Manager Aston at the Papakea Resort

I think my husband and I looked at reviews for every place to stay in Maui before we decided on this place. We originally wanted to stay in Kihei so it would be more central but we opted for wanting the ocean front view that seemed so much better at the Papakea. We were thrilled beyond believe when we arrived...

Stayed here in September 2011. I booked a few nights here, a few nights next door, and a few nights in Kihei. Booked through Hotwire so I didn't know what I was getting myself into... After all, it was fantastic! As a couple in our 30s, the first night was funny because this place is full of families and retirees....

We stayed at the Aston Papakea last Spring. We were a little disappointed to get stuck with a second floor room when we had specifically called a few times several months in advance to request a ground floor with easy access to the beach.

The rooms weren't bad. Counters and cabinets have been updated but the walls and carpet are either outdated or dirty not sure.

The resort was beautiful but the condo we stayed in was really outdated The pull-out bed was all springs and both beds had dirty sheets. Who wants to clean all bedding your first day in Maui.
