The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is the best value, dollar for dollar, than any other facility on the island of Maui. With no restaurant, no shopping and no other distractions, the staff is allowed the ability to make our stay 100% enjoyable with cleanliness #1, the spirit of Aloha, and fair prices. Wonderful restaurants and excellent shopping within 500 feet...

We have stayed here several times but not for 4 years. Last time we noted that upgrades were needed. This time we came to find out major upgrades have indeed been made. Very convenient location near Whaler's Village and the mile+ walkway that spans the beach front of several hotels and restaurants.

Exceeded our expectations. The new lobby is beautiful and the desk and bell staff were so welcoming. Parking is plentiful and close to the rooms.

The furniture looks like it came from the 1980's and cleanliness varies from room to room, but it's by the water and in a decent location and there are balconies and you can even cook your own overpriced food from Safeway.

Aloha Alzor S, Many thanks for taking the time to write a review and thank you for the chuckle regarding the ability to cook your own "overpriced food from Safeway." For those of us who have lived in Hawaii for a long time I think we get used to the fact that grocery store prices are a bit different than...

Very nice grounds Excellent employees so far it's our second day so there maybe another review at the end. Very helpful staff. The room is nice beachy but 80's so that is hand in hand. It is accommodating with a full kitchen and washer dryer on same level. Large balcony which is awesome. Wide bathroom counter separate from closet and...

Reviewed 4 February 2017

The Whaler does not have the "feel" of a HOTEL in the traditional sense, and that is meant as a compliment. Although there is a very modern and pleasing reception lobby, complete with bellman and concierge services, there are no restaurants and bars and bustling shops. Staying at a unit at the Whaler is very much like staying in your...

I spent two weeks at the Whaler in January. The condo we stayed in was not updated, however, it was large, had a beautiful deck and wonderful view of the beach. We booked with an owner, rather than the website because I made a last minute reservation and could negotiate for a larger place. We also could choose location. The...

Stayed at The Whaler for two weeks in a premium condo. Fully renovated with in-suite laundry was well worth it. Tons of storage. Great kitchen. Nice view of ocean. Quiet, clean, great maid service, friendly staff in lobby. Can buy stamps and mail letters, organize excursions and taxis in lobby. Location right on Kaanapali beach. Close to golfing, shops, restaurants,...

We were there in mid December. Booked the property on the property website, not with an owner because we wanted to have housekeeping and the like while there.
