As others have said, this is a great property in a great location. But, check out the location of your condo. We were in the building that faces the mall and its garbage units. It was noisy and though we had an "ocean view" as paid for if, you looked to the right, the view was largely unappealing and disappointing.

I don't want the condo we rented to get out there, we want to keep it to ourselves it was so absolutely gorgeous. We rented through a rental company not directly through the Whaler so we knew exactly what we were getting. It exceeded anything we had ever expected. We were on the top floor of Tower 2. The sunsets...

We stayed at the whaler for 9 days as part of our 2 weeks honeymoon. We payed a little extra to get upgraded to a fully renovated condo on the 5th floor, which was totally worth it. The condo was really spacious and we enjoyed the full kitchen to be able to prepare a few meals, mostly breakfast and and...

Second time staying at The Whaler and again a great trip. The location is really what draws us to this place. But I also have to say that the staff are just as great! We rented unit #1056 and were very pleased. The view from the master bedroom in particular was the top of my list. To wake up every...

All the wait staff at the Aston At The Whaler were outstanding. When returning your rental car fill up the car with gas before driving on to the airport property because there are no service station on the airport property (I learned that the hard way). There is a Costco near the airport. Airport to to the Aston Whaler is...

What an amazing surprise - beautiful property and pool, right on beach while watching whales from your balcony. Full kitchen, free laundry, valet, towels and chair service on beach, easy access to multiple restaurants.

We were really impressed by this hotel and would definitely come back. We stayed in a studio suite which was spacious and nicely decorated. It had a full kitchen, large bathroom, large sleeping area and furniture and a great lanai (balcony). Our unit was on the third floor facing North, which gave us a view of the gardens and onto...

This was the ideal spot for our family vacation! The condo itself was lovely, updated, and exactly as described. “Premium” studio for 2 adults and a 10 year old had plenty of room. We used the kitchen for some meals and enjoyed using the outdoor grills on the property. Amazing location with snorkeling right out front or a short walk...
