If you're considering renting this condo, let me warn you about what you'll find when you get there. View was great. Check in smooth and staff very nice. However, when you enter the front door you'll be in for a big and not pleasant surprise. This condo would be considered substandard. If you're like me, you read these reviews thinking...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 February 2017 via mobile

We have had the chance to travel to Maui several times over the past few years, usually on corporate incentive trips. We have always stayed at the various 5 star resorts. This was the first trip we have arranged ourselves and we chose the Aston as our place to stay. We could not have been happier. At the 5 star...

My wife and I had a fabulous time at the Whaler, and Maui in general. A family member highly recommended the Whaler and we were so excited about our trip. Although we were a bit disappointed about the first room we got, the next day we received a room with a great ocean view (which we had booked) and the...

We have stayed at The Whaler many times. Have always gone through a travel agent and requested Tower 1 1 bedroom/2 bath ocean view floors 9 and above (gets you over the building next door) When we arrive it was a hassle to find a condo with these requirements as you don't get to reserve a specific condo. Booked direct...

We absolutely loved this place. Condo #561 is well maintained by the owners and staff. We had a perfect view of the ocean along with privacy so we could sit on the lanai day or night. The location was our 1st choice and continued to be throughout out time there. The #1 beach in Maui is right there! Along with...

We stayed in Tower 2, Condo 459. Wonderful! Everything was clean, nicely furnished, beautiful beach and pool. Close to restaurants. Great walking/jogging path goes right in front of the building. Self parking is close. Would definitely return to this condo!

We stayed here for one week and were super impressed. Our room and the lobby were beautiful, amazing, spacious and kept spotless. Probably the nicest room we've ever stayed in, anywhere. Terrific location – we walked to our snorkel outing at the Kaanapali cove, and were within 5-10 minutes’ drive of the shops on Front Street. We slept with only...

The Whaler is on the nicest beach that I've seen on Maui (or anywhere in the world for that matter). The sand is clean and the water clear, and there's plenty of room to spread out. The surf is usually great for body surfing, and my kids will play in it for hours-on-end. The hotel is located only a few...
