Our problem with Aston started just when we reached there.After a long flight we were tired but the only thing that kept us going was thet we will finally get our 1 bedroom OCEAN FRONT suite.To our dismay,the girl at the reception said that an Ocean Front was not avialable n we will have to stay in an ocean view...

Aloha, It is unfortunate that given our best efforts we had to place this guest into an ocean view room for one night. We did however adjust the rate and had our staff move their belongings for them. Mistakes do happen and my philosophy is how do we do our best to take care of the guest when a mistake...

We stay here for 1 night, the place is a little far away to the airport, but the place is so quiet and the beach is very beatiful. It look like a family hotel, everything is perfect. They have washing machine in the room, even books and swimming things. We can even cook at room. We are at the first...

Beautiful place with ocean front apts but the pools are to cold. They are always empty because they aren't heated. The ocean is freezing also, the lies of it being warm all the time really makes me angry. My idea of an Hawaii vacation is swimming, snorkeling, etc. Only people from the cold North dare go in. We are from...

Aloha, I am dissapointed that this guest feels our 77 degree constant ocean temerature is cold. I will also inform you all that one pool at Papakea is heated and the other is not in an effort to make everyone happy. Thousands go snorkeling every day here and I am sad that this guest felt the waters to cold. Having...

Me and my husband (25 years old) stayed at Aston Papakea in October, 2011. Till this day I can't forget this place. We booked garden view studio, but when we came, we been upgraded to oceanfront studio, which was simply amazing! They have whatever you need in a modern, fully equipped kitchen. Our studio was at first floor, so we...

My husband and I stayed at the Papakea the last week of February. We chose it for the oceanfront studio location they offered and we weren't disappointed. Our room was 20 yards from the ocean. We got a ground level room so we could walk right out of the room to the beach (not that there was much beach.) The...

We stayed in unit G404 for several days and found it to be a wonderful, comfortable and well-equipped unit. The Papakea was immaculately maintained just as it was on our last visit in 2007. The kitchen had all of the tools we needed even including barbecue tools, dishwasher soap, microwave popcorn, coffee, and filters. Our unit was privately-managed (many others...

We stayed in this unit for a week in February and loved it. The owners have done an amazing overhaul on the unit and it is high quality top to bottom yet tasteful and comfortable. They are also very organized and strict with the cleaning which we really appreciated. Everything in the kitchen was classy and they didn't miss a...

Rented K401, 1 BR w/ Loft from a private party. The unit was nice and came fully equipped. Even had a couple of boogie boards and snorkel packages available for your use. The views are beautiful and you can lounge beachside and watch the whales. Although the beach is unusable (coral reef) it is still great to sip a POG...

My sister and I went to Maui from 01/25/12 to 02/05/12 and had booked a flight, car, and hotel package through Expedia.ca. While I'd viewed the virtual tour on the Aston website, I had no idea how it would relate in person. It was better than I could have ever imagined! We were in an Oceanfront studio unit F203. When...
