Beautiful place!

We loved this resort! The restaurant was just average but the front desk staff were wonderful! Housekeeping was slow to clean rooms each day & denied me clean towels when I asked a staff memeber directly. When I called housekeeping they broggught towels 45 minutes later so I just used a beach towel so we could make it to our dinner reservation on time. Other than that minor inconvenience it was fabulous & all of the other staff were helpful & very kind. Our room was BEAUTIFUL! It had views of the beautiful pool area as well as the ocean beyond the palm trees & we could even see the island of Molokai. We were pretty busy out & about during our trip but the evenings we spent at the resort were very relaxing! We would love to go back!

Good hotel

No beach access on site. Restaurant was good. Room was crowded with bed , kitchen, couch in same room. No closet space for luggage. Pools were great. Concierge was very helpful.

Clean Friendly Great location Beautiful Beaches

Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, price
Location: Long walks on the beach, restaurants, shopping, great snorkeling directly in front of resort
Great place for older couples. Away from the busy downtown but within walking distance to great shopping and restaurants. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. This was our second visit to this resort and we loved it both times.

Very nice property

Pros: Not as crowded as the other big resorts (ie Westin/Sheraton).
Cons: It's all self parking, no valet. Would have been nice if there was a valet option.
Location: Go to the Longs and Safeway closer to Lahaina for supplies. Also came with one free ticket to the Maui Ocean Center.
We just got back from Kaanapali Shores. Stayed seven days but spent most of our vacation exploring Maui. The time we spent at the condo was great. We upgraded to a two bedroom ocean view. Expensive upgrade but worth it all in the end. Only negative was a small ant problem in the kitchen area and one of the bathrooms. I told front desk and they had someone come up and spray the areas while we were out. Overall a very pleasant place to stay for vacation. The beach next to the property is just ok. There are nicer beaches near Kaanapali so try to visit those spots as well. One beach next to the Westin and Kapalua Bay were our favorite locations. The Shores does have two decent swimming pools that we enjoyed. Rented a cabana and the pool staff was excellent. Rented a paddle board and chairs from them and they were very helpful and friendly. Overall very high on the Aloha spirit.

Aloha. Our parking fee is only $9 per night, which is one of the more reasonable fee levels in the resort area. The parking charge would not have been $172. Mahalo.

First time to Maui

It was our first time to Hawaii and we had a great time. The only down falls about the Aston Kaanapoli Shores was their towel service is really weird, they don't have any waitresses or waiters coming out to you at the pool like the hotel next door does. The last negative thing was the room service came really late in the day so we were always back in the room getting ready for dinner. The Concierge desk was amazing and really helpful. I would wait until you check in before booking any activities and do it through the hotel. The landscape was great there as well.

Great Condo

This is a very nice place to stay. We stayed in a two bedroom unit and it was large and very clean. Everything in the room appeared to be new or newer. We will stay here again on our next visit to Maui.

Amazing atmosphere! Friendly people! Definitely worth a try!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, spacious, playstation & dvd's included, beach towels
Cons: amenity fees for services not used, additional parking fee, additional fee for gym usage, beach area small and rocky, more knowledge needed of propane grills available
This was my family's first trip to Maui, booked through a website. Looks can be deceiving, I was skeptical. After arriving, I was completely in disbelief that we were staying at such a beautiful place. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo (staying with 2 teenagers), so the full kitchen and washer/dryer was very appreciated. I do wish the propane grills available for use were more advertised, as we did not know about them until later in our stay. The sights were amazing and staff was very friendly. I would, however, recommend a ocean or garden view. Don't let the few cons below sway your decision not to stay. You will not be disappointed. I have raved about the amazing grounds. Looking forward to staying again in 2015!!

This hotel has everything you need!

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: $25 day resort fee for towels & movies, $9 day parking
This was our 4th time staying at Kaanapali Shores. We will always stay here for the convenience, location, well kept grounds and great staff. With the grocery store, ABC Store, bars and restaurants within walking distance, you wouldn't need to venture far. One drawback is the beach. Although it is usable, there is limited lounging area and the water out in front of the resort is extremely rocky and very hard to enjoy (water shoes required). There is a small sandy area next to the neighboring property to swim. The staff, especially Ross at the front desk, are all very accommodating. Laundry in room is super convenient for long stays. Overall, another great stay on Maui. I can't wait to return.
