"Excellent value for the cost, location, and amenit"
We loved the Papakea! My wife and I were looking for a good compromise between cost, location, and amenities, and we certainly found it! The Papakea is located on a quiet, cozy recessed drive away from the main highway. Most of the occupants were families with kids or older couples. The cost of the room included free wi-fi and free parking, which was […] great since most other hotels/resorts in the area charged separate fees for each of those amenities. Our room was clean and comfortable, and was only serviced when we requested it. The kitchen is GREAT because we didn't want to have to eat out for every meal (especially breakfast), and it was fuly stocked with tableware, silverware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The room also included a few used books, games, and puzzles, which were nice ways to wind down the evenings. The Papakea doesn't open up to a beach of its own, but the neighboring hotels did, and it wasn't a very far walk to get to the open sand and ocean. It's a short drive from the Papakea to other destinations, such as Lahaina. The Papakea is also within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants, a post office, and rental shops (for snorkeling gear, boards, etc). GLUTEN-FREE: My wife must eat a gluten-free diet, and the Papakea is a short walk from a great natural foods store (the Farmers Market), and is right across the street from an italian restaurant (Pizza Paradiso) that has excellent GF pizza crust and other GF menu options.

"We love Papakea"
Very nice condo. The only problem was some maintenance issues, like the showers gave us problems with the amount of hot water available, and one shower had a broken handle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful resort and would recommend it to anyone who ask.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We love the Aston Papakea!!"
This is our 4th time staying at the Papkea. We love the location and its so beautiful there. You can walk right to the beach next door and its a great beach for everyone. Your in walking distance to a little grocery store and a convenience store and shops. And there's about a 10 minute walk to a playground. We will stay there again. Plus they don't […] charge for parking and each group of buildings has a pool, hot tub, and like 6 BBQ's all with an ocean view. We love it and our daughter loves staying there also.

"quiet and wonderful"
The grounds are kept well, the staff are like worker bees. Constantly moving and doing things around the property to keep it looking it's best. The room we had was renovated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Housekeeping was friendly and accomodating. Our room was ocean front and great, we saw whales and sea turtles from our balcony. […] I like the location of the resort, it was close to everything but stll had the feeling of being secluded.

Just a suggestion, the bathroom could be upgraded just a little bit, other than that, everything was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"first trip to Maui"
We found the condo to be very comfortable and nicely decorated. our bed was made everyday. but the sheets were never changed, we were there for 8 days and seven nights. We love your best kept secret, only one heated pool. discovered this on our last day of our stay. I also thought that each condo would have the basics comdiments. or give us a list of […] things that we would need. We plan to return next year, we will be better prepared to know what to bring. this was our first visit to aston resort. over all we loved our vacation. and will stay at aston resort.

"Greart Value-great location-clean and comfortable"
We would book again- simply put. For the high season on Maui, rates were reasonable. The place is a little older and therefore a few things were pretty 80s like the wallpapered rooms and slightly worn cabinets but that is the only even slightly negative and it is hardly worth the mention. The place was spacious, well equipped, nicely furnished, very […] clean (matters much more to me than retro wallpaper) and very comfortable. For a 1 bedroom, full living and dining area and full kitchen, you won't find a better deal on Maui in February. I took a chance via a hotels web site and was very pleased. Don't let the lack of 5 stars fool you. It was great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel for the Price"
I have stayed in other Aston resorts, but this was my first stay at the Papakea. I would stay again. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had an ocean view room which was awesome! The location of the hotel is convenient, within minutes of Lahaina. You have to pay an amenity fee regardless of whether you use the extra amenities such as the safe, […] dvds, games etc, so in my opinion, that's a drawback. However, you do not have to pay daily parking which is an advantage. The last comment I would make is we made the effort to collect trash off of Ka'anapali Beach through a volunteer program. We got back after dark, so we left that bag of trash on our lanai overnight because we were to count the pieces and type of trash. We were "greeted" the next morning by an Aston Papakea Security person who was quite unfriendly who simply said "you have a blue bag on your lanai. You need to remove it immediately. You cannot have anything stored on your lanai." I apologized and did remove it. When I check the rules they hand you when you check in, this rule is buried under the title "No signal flags". I felt his reaction was a little unjustified and very unfriendly. I think he could have been a little more diplomatic about it. I had spent part of my vacation time volunteering for a good cause only to be "scolded" for leaving a bag on the lanai. I thought that was very poor customer relations.

"close to lots"
The Aston Papakea is a nice, if a bit aging, property. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room (individually owned condo) needed a bit of repair, but nothing that detracted from a great stay. I would say the biggest surprise was that a property this large does not have a restaurant or bar, although you can walk next door to a sister property. […] It is close (walkable) to the market and a nice park. Although we had a great view of the ocean, you have to walk a ways for beach access (sea wall in front of property). Overall, very nice stay and we saw a ton of whales from our lanai. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel for the price!"
The Aston at Papakea Resort is an awesome resort if you are on a budget. The staff cleaned your room every day, even did the dishes for you. They have a movie rental kiosk where you can watch the latest releases with the family. The grounds were up-kept very well, pool and spa area very relaxing. Overall a very positive experience for our 2 week st […] ay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Couples or families are welcome here!"
We have stayed at Papakea resort three times in the past few years and have had a wonderful time each trip. The rooms are clean, the service is excellent, the grounds are well kept and beautiful. The pools are clean and the staff is always friendly. I would recommend this resort to anyone. We have stayed as a family, 7 of us in a two bedroom/loft unit […] and stayed as a couple in a 1 one bedroom. All rooms were great! Thank you Papakea for providing a wonderful resort and making our trip to Maui that much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great resort for a family!!"
We traveled to Maui as a family of six, and spent 8 wonderful nights at the Aston at Papakea Resort. We were absolutely thrilled with our accommodations. We had a 2bd ocean front unit with an updated and fully equipped kitchen. Breath taking view of Moloki and Lanai our room. The location is great as well. Close to beautiful beaches and snorkeling. […] Within walking distance to resorts with restaurants and outdoor happy hour bars. Well manicured grounds with shuffle board, putt putt, and tennis courts. Two pool/spa areas with nice clean BBQs for guest use. Would recommend this resort to all those looking for a nice and affordable place in the best part of Maui. Also close to the Hyatt who had an awesome Luau with yummy food and great entertainment. Can't wait to go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Like my home away from home"

"Do not recommend this hotel to anyone."
The hotel facility is nice overall, other than no beach access. They teach me what the difference between beach view vs. beach access. The front desk is not helpful at tall. Internet in the room is not working and the front desk even do not let me use phone to make a local call for the internet issue. Also, be aware there is front desk people available […] from 2am - 6am. I am amazed the hotel can be in business wiht this kind of service in a tourist town. The beach towers were not replaced everyday. Not sure why. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fourth time visitor...."
I love this property, my fourth time here! Great location, landscaping is awesome, staff and our housekeeper "Judy" was through and friendly. Having a full kitchen was great and saved us some cash as well. Only drawback is the beach, it's filled with rocks for miles up and down the beach. We had to drive in order to get to a nice sandy beach. There […] was a pool and spa available to us which was always clean and well maintained. The air conditioning unit was very loud and the ceiling fans help cool the rooms but there wasn't much circulation of the cool air. We had to keep bedroom doors open and balcony door open as well. We had to turn up the TV extra loud when the air came on and down when the air went off. One disappointment was that our ocean view room was blocked by a big tree. We had to stand at a corner of the balcony in order to view the ocean. This visit was with mom, brother and sister-in-law. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Obnoxious security officer!!!"
Except for an incident with the day security officer who was insolent, obnoxious and nosey, everyone else was very good to deal with and, for the most part, helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Average service resort"
I asked for luggage stand. They told me only owners can have it. Luggage stand is very common which most 2 stars and up resorts should have it for each room as standard. The resort should change all the TV stands. It blocks the left and right sides.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad hotel for honeymoon"
We booked an oceanfront studio. We walk into out dated decor. The room had a murphy bed with sheets that weren't changed our entire three days. The checkin staff was not friendly. The shampoos and products were not restocked. The condo had a cooler which we took to drive up the Road to Hana. We wanted to dry it out for the next guest so we put it on […] the porch to dry and security yelled at us but not all the smokers. You have to sign a waiver saying you will not smoke on the property and there were smokers everywhere. Even on the beach, which by the way, is nonexistant. They have the entrances blocked. You have to walk to neighboring hotels to get in and there is only about 6 feet of sand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel But Terrible Dollar Car Rental."
Hotel was excellent value. Great vacation experience BUT Dollar CAR RENTAL WAS A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. IT WAS THE WORST RENTAL EXPERIENCE I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED. I tried out 4 pieces of Junk so I could get out of Maui airport. Then had to change again at the resort. The front wheels sounded like they might fall off or they burned oil and blew it […] thru the A/C. Etc. Absolutely Terrible and Unbelievable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice location peaceful"
I got an amazing room upgrade which was so nice. I was right on the ocean. The property is nice, clean, well maintained. I wanted to check in 1.5 hours early as I had all kinds of meltables in the car and was greeted by a somewhat snarky front desk person. To be fair she was much more pleasant upon check out. I also requested an hour late check out […] and was denied this. I don't get the impression they are very flexible. They were doing cable updates on the building I was in and I was hoping for some privacy and to not deal with a two day open schedule for the workers to stop by. There was also no flexibility with this. Dealing with cable workers sounds like stress I have to deal with at home not on vacation. In fact I don't deal with this at home, who can sit around and wait all day? They didn't inform me of this until after I checked in. Anyway other than that a great stay. My room was amazing and well equipped to cook. I think most of the units vary however since they are condos that are privately owned. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great West Maui location."
We loved it, and plan to come back. Having free DVD and PlayStation 2 game rentals meant my husband was never bored. The pool and hot tub are clean, and the location is right next to the beach. Nothing beats soaking in a hot tub while listening to the sound of waves crashing behind you. Location wise, it is perfectly situated within walking distance […] of a supermarket, coffee shop, a fruit stand and a few small restaurants. It's right next to the main highway and getting anywhere was a breeze. Plus, it's within 10-15 minute driving distance of some fabulous restaurants. There are five or six grills next to the pool, meaning you can do a little cooking and grilling if you'd like. Best of all, there was free parking. FREE parking for your car (2nd car is charged $5.00/day which is still less than other hotels). Getting towels changed was a challenge, but having a washer/dryer in the unit was helpful.

"Good Hotel, but somewhat of a gamble"
When we checked in the next lady over from us was complaining about how her room was in disrepair and unacceptable. The service representative informed the lady that each unit is privately owned, and that there was nothing they could do about it. Keep that in mind when booking at this location. That being said, our room was great. It overlooked the […] ocean, was very clean and quite comfortable. My only gripe is that we had booked a room with a queen bed and instead got a murphy bed. "Honey, did you see a bed anywhere in here?" The bed turned out to be very comfortable, but it was still a little disappointing after our expectation of a "real" bed.

"Nice oceanfront, good snorkeling just south"
I've stayed at Papakea 4 times and each time has been great. The only negative thing was this time they charged us a $10 per day "resort fee" which bought us nothing, just another way to gouge the tourists.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Maui - Papakea, None Better!"

"Our Wonderful 40th Anniversary & Friend's Wedding"
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We were so comfortable and being on the ground floor was perfect for walking over to the pool or putt putt golf. We had brought a collapsible putter and it saved us a bit of $ since they rent putters for $3 an hour! It was a home away from home. The grounds are very well kept and spotless. We've told […] all our friends that we will definitely go back there. Another selling point is being within walking distance to the ABC store. If we needed anything, it was only a few minute walk through the back gate. We fell in love with the Pineapple Vodka and POG juice. Great island drink ;-) Very friendly staff. We did the submarine tour (we were disappointed) Hana tour, zip lining, helicopter tour, and sunset cruise and they were all worth the $. They were presented at the Sunday morning orientation with Sandy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Corporate Managed Privately Owned Condos"
Wonderful soft bed, stone tiled floors, washer/dryer, and fully equipped kitchen. Ocean view from patio, 50 yards from beach.

The Aston Papakea Resort was comfort from the start. When we got there the staff was wonderful making sure that everything was taken care of. There was not a bad view of the ocean and surrounding Islands at all. The property was clean and ground crew paid special attention to making sure that it was well kept. The surrounding area was inviting as well. […] We have already made a decision that when we go back it will be at the Papakea Resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location for the perfgect vacation in Maui"
My family and I had a great stay at the Aston resort. It is worth paying a few extra dollars to reserve the ocean front property. The calming effect oif the ocean early in the morning and late at night so close to one's room is worth the extra money. The small kitchen allowed us to make our own breakfast while eating out for the main course (restaurants […] are great but not cheap in Maui). The washer dryer in the room was a Godsend with two small children in our party. In all a great hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a beautiful place right on the ocean. But the pool was just average and ocean came right up to the wall so there was no sandy beach. just a ledge that would be dangerous to kids. The rooms where good and clean but there is no radio.Genuine Expedia guest review
