"Great value overall"
We were in an oceanfront 1st floor suite during our 10 nights stay and have to admit it was overall a great location. 10minutes drive into Lahaina. Onos taco shop was walking distance and had great street tacos. The only thing was that the smoking area was in the parking lot near our room and we could smell the cigs if we had the windows open at night. […] Plus we were at an end unit which was nice L101 to be specific, and found a popular smoking spot was between our hotel property and the sister property on the beach on the seawall, which we could smell if the breeze was in the our unit's direction. Our unit was all updated which was appealing. The oceanfront units had a nice grassy area, which was a plus if you have young children with lots of energy. We found ourselves have our morning coffee, reading the paper and watching our 4yr old running around. It's also very nice to have a full size kitchen with dishware. We ended up having breakfast and lunch at the unit and dinner out. Some of the amenities could have been better. They have a restaurant their sister resort next door, but dinner prices were too pricey and not worth it. We also found Aloha Mixed plate restaurant to be our favorite restaurant with a great atmosphere, service, food, and affordable drinks! We also found D.T. Fleming beach just 10mins north of the resort very nice and found ourselves going there quite a bit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and views!"
Excellent location and views. Friendly staff. I would stay here again. Only negative is the carpet was a little worn, but I went to see the outside area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our trip to Maui"
The condo we stayed in at Aston Papakea exceeded our expectations. It had been updated and was clean and very comfortable. The balcony overlooked the ocean where we had seen sea turtles , beautiful sunsets and enjoyed the ocean breeze. The Condos were conveniently located to restaurants and numerous activities. I would stay here again and recommend […] this place to my family and friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely resort on the water"
Stayed a week in Kahana Beach (Aug 23 - 29, 2013) and extended until September 1 spending the additional days at Papakea. We wished we'd booked with them from the start! Our room was PERFECT; 1 bedroom unit on the water with fully appointed kitchen, beautifully remodeled bathroom, comfortable mattress (and couch!), lanai looking out over Molokai with […] stunning sunset views! We relaxed and enjoyed the lush grounds using both pools and hot tubs, the cabanas near the pools and even took advantage of the discounted meals at the sister property next door. There is some great snorkeling literally steps from the room and if you're paying attention, you can even see the sea turtles from the shore on occasion. The staff were kind, and attentive and went out of their way to help or offer assistance. We are already planning a return trip to Maui and will definitely be staying at Papakea!

hotel is hard to find, once found it is fairly rundown (exterior), but once on the grounds the landscape is beautiful, putting green was in good condition and the pool was small but very relaxing at the right hour. the room was surprisingly well laid out and the decor was old but soothing. we had an ocean view facing Lanai which was wonderful to wake […] up to. overall the hotel would be higher rated if they spent the same amount of effort in the "first impression" of the hotel.

"1st Time - Overall a wonderful stay"
Great stay but a couple of small changes. First we booked 2 Queen beds and got a King and 2 Twins?? Not the most convenient. Second the dishware was old and the coffee pot took forever to make coffee. Most rooms have more than one guest and it would be nice to have coffee and cups that could be filled less frequently. Other than that great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice ocean front hotel"
Very roomy hotel with full kitchen and three bedrooms. Bathrooms were a little older but overall nice place. Beach was better than some we visited. Loved listening to the ocean when sitting on the porch.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything west side of Maui"
Staff was great to us the entire stay. Had small issue with tiny ants in the bathroom. Pools were rather small and crowded. Had nice grills to use they were very clean. Location was great and on middle of everything. Beach access not the best, but walking distance to bigger beach to the south.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place,ocean view"
The hotel is nice,with great view from the 3rd floor were I stayed,with ocean view. The rooms are very comfortable,with fully equiped kitchen ,living ,really great. Free parking during the stay. Too expensive the hotel fee for coffee,newspaper (that was not delivered every day)and free dvd rental(the dvd did not work until the last day) The hotel staff […] was really disappointing,not kind at all with us amd the room cleaning was poor. The place is so nice and the ocean view so great thay I had a really great time though. Poor wifi signal at room Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Blame it on that they didn't care :)"
45 delay in check in, unapologetic/ uncourteous staff; phone in room/ to front desk didn't work, DVD rental has damaged discs, dvd player is semi-functioning PS2; shower didn't drain, sugar ants in kitchen, but hey. It's Hawaii.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was traveling with my wife and one year old and was originally offered a 2nd floor one bedroom which apparently qualified for the "ocean view" I had reserved but really we would only have been able to see the pond and grounds in front of our building. Also, as this building was closest to the front of the complex, it bordered the parking lot. As would […] our bedroom had we stayed there. Instead, I asked if there was something closer to the water. In fact there was, though I was told it hadn't been remodeled, like the other unit. I checked them both out and it was no contest. We didn't need a remodeled unit when the other one was a 3rd floor corner unit right above the pool and with a great view of the ocean. Clearly, they were trying to fill the less desirable rooms first - so if you're not happy, definitely ask for an upgrade. Chances are good you'll get one. They also provided a crib (as per our reservation) and we had a really nice stay overall. Main drawback is no beach on the property but with a one year old the pool was our main focus. And it's less than 10 min to Lahaina, Kaanapali, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an ocean view but had a sea wall in front of our room so to lay on beach we had to walk along sea wall. The bed was a pull down out of the wall and wasnt comfortable. Will go back but will ask to see room first.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bad place for everybody."
Internet didn't work. TV didn't work. No beach. Air conditioner is really loud. Loud creaking bed and mattress, even if the roll from one side to the other. Neighbors were really noisy even off hours, security reacts in an hour or so. I will never stay there again. Sure, none of my friends too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"10 ********** Star"
Perfect all around. The staff was great. the room was wonderful. Had great views of the ocean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome resort @ affordable price"
Very clean,quiet relaxing hotel right on the water. The Expedia concierge helped us get awesome seats @ the Drums of the Pacific luau. Which was the best luau I've been to. We would stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
We got upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom, which was nice. The room was clean. Only thing is the air conditioner was in the living room and the bedroom was on the other end. We had to blast the air conditioner to cool the bedroom. Otherwise, I am thinking of bringing my family there for a getway since there is a fully equipped kitchen and the market […] is across the street. It was peaceful.

"Nice Hotel on Ocean"
Nice condo complex on the ocean but there is no beach behind this complex. The landscaping outside of this complex is immaculate. The unit that we stayed in had a nice view of the ocean. On the clear days there is a nice view of the mountains. The blue ocean water is very clear. They also have a pool and hot tub by the ocean. They have lounge chairs […] on the property for the guests to use.The one bedroom condo that we stayed in was decent size but had too much furniture in it which made it look a little small. This condo is a little older but was in good shape. The bedroom was a little warm because there is only one wall air conditioner in the living room which is opposite the bedroom. There is ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room. The kitchen is nice and well equipped. The unit also had a small washer & dryer. There is a shopping center across the street with a supermarket in it which is very convenient. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"poor quality hotel"
poor quality serive staff and dirty rooms we got to the hotel and we had to stay outside 1 hour because the key didint work and itnwas 100 degree hot and the air condition was broken and when they fix it after next day still was the same is just not whorth it save a couple hundred box for this cheap hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
Off the main strip, but nice hotel otherwise. Enjoyed our stay...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"Great Honeymoon Stay in Papakea"

"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.

"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.

"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 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

"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.
