My friend and I stayed here 3 nights, and a hostel for three more nights. We started our trip here, but quickly realized we should have done the reverse, so we could have ended our stay in comfy beds! My friend and I shared a one bedroom standard suite. There was a grocery store across the street, which helped us in stocking our kitchen for breakfast and for snacks for our daily excursions. The unit had a washer and dryer. They did not supply us with enough detergent, but we just asked the front desk staff for more when we ran out after the first load. The couch in the living room converted to a bed, so I slept here while my friend slept in the bedroom. We really didn't have the best view (we basically saw the parking lot and a bit of water) but I can't complain too much. The beach was only a short walk away.
We organized a view activities through the concierge. Everyone was really helpful in helping us choose activities, particularly when it came to renting a car. Apparently we should have done that in advance of our trip, but the concierge called around each of the different car rental companies for us to see what was available.
We met some fun people in the Jacuzzi some of the nights. There were lots of people in town for a weddings, but we met one couple who lived at Aston Kaanapali, which was cool.Recommended for:

Kaanapali Shores had some unique art and common spaces that really piqued my interest. So did the eclectic mix of convention-goers milling around the lobby. They were taking the hotel by storm! We investigated the pool-side and noticed things like green spaces for kids to run around, a decent café, a quick walk to the beach, and what appeared to be a very hot, hot-tub (to be indulged another time). The room itself was pretty blasé, with dull brown carpeting that needed replacement. The bedroom was decorated with quilts and felt cozy but dark. Then we saw the bathroom, which needed some serious TLC! Fluorescent lighting is not my thing – especially in a hotel that initially came off as being higher end. A gym, fine dining, tennis courts, and close access to other tasty local eats are right in the neighborhood.Recommended for:

Sometimes it feels like "Aston" owns the entire west side of Maui. Well they should, because they know how to own and operate a hotel! - and the Aston Kaanapali Shores does not disappoint. This medium sized hotel feels a lot bigger because it's jam-packed into such a small area and well, it should be because space is obviously going to be a premium on one of the world's most beautiful islands. This condo-style property pretty much has it all - excellent views, completely appointed rooms, tennis courts, a fitness center, a beach-side swimming pool, restaurants and the famous, year round kiddie camp, 'Camp Kaanapali'. So drop your kids off, grab a mai tai (or two) and head for da beach! - cuz that's probably why you came to Maui in the first place, no?Recommended for:
