First of all the WIFI in my room was terrible, i rate it 3 out of 10. Other rooms it worked perfect. The biggest problem with this hotel is that security sucks the fun right of the place. It all started on the very first day when this guy tells me not to jump in the pool. Its a pool,...

Aloha, This is about the fifth review from the same wedding party and I want you all to know we have about 6 wedding parties a month and never seem to have a problem. Since this group decided to write in bulk I will mention once again. The rules at papakea are the same as every resort on Maui security...

Well, I can't lie… I would never stay here again. I freely admit that I’m a hotel snob and pretty spoiled so take my comments as you wish. There were 40 of us staying at the hotel for a wedding, and between us we had about 12 units. The units are very old, but they are renovating structural pieces slowly...

Aloha, I have responded to many from this group and they all had the same issues. I will comment that as in all resorts housekeepers will not touch personal belongings on the bed. It is a liability issue that any major company will not allow. If you leave your towels on the floor they will be replaced and if you...

The Papakea Resort is a beautiful spot, but most of the rooms do need upgrading. We were with a large group and got to see quite a few of the rooms and most of our group were disappointed with their rooms. There was dishwasher detergent provided, but there was no dishwashing liquid if you wanted to hand wash a few...

It was our first time in Hawaii and had a great time we will definitely be returning. We were in Maui for a Wedding and there were around 40 family and friends staying at Papakea, the Resort needs a lot of upgrading and the majority of the staff were courteous and and helpful. We found the Security Staff were way...

My family and I stayed at Aston at Papkea Resort over the Memorial Day holiday. I have to say it was a very beautiful place. We originally booked a 2 bedroom but was upgraded to a 3 br 3 bath! What a great surprise that was. The view was awesome and the kids, 21 and 16, were thrilled to have...

Lahaina itself is a cute town. However, I would not stay the Aston Papakea Resort again. The rooms were clean, but none were that nice. Being in a large group, I got to see many different rooms. I found the resort to be very outdated. Some rooms have been upgraded, but I still wasn't wowed by any of them. The...

Aloha, I admit Papakea is a quite low key property that is not the Ritz and about a third the price of Wailea condos or more. The fact that the reviewer states there is less wind on the south side of Maui is just plain wrong. The beach at Papakea is small but goes from Papakea all the way to...

We had a large group with us. Consisting of groups of children to teens to adults. Lets begin with how the pictures on the website are somewhat misleading. The rooms shown online are of the TOP rooms in the resort. The rooms are privately owned and are used as a hotel room when the owners are not using them. As...

Aloha, It is true that each condo is individually decorated by each owner and they are all different. Aston has a standard in order to be in our rental pool and these standards are strict. It is possible to rent at Papakea and not rent from Aston and we have no control of those units. Housekeeping will vacume if needed...

We booked a one bedroom through vacation international. Since it was just my husband and myself, we could have done a studio. The unit was very nice, second floor with a good view. The living room as a murphy bed which was perfect for us so we could enjoy the breeze from the lanai. Bedroom was fine but I agree...

I recently visited Lahaina, Maui, HI. Tonae Martin recommended that I check into the Aston at Papakea Resort. Tonae assured me that I would have the most pleasant experience staying in this resort.

50+ locals decended on the pool after renting the lani. They started a BBQ on fire. 12 unattended kids in the jacuzzi. Looked like gangsters all over drinking beer, bottles all over. 15 more kids throwing toys and splashing in the pool. They were not even staying there at the place. Called the desk they did nothing.

Aloha, I read this review with some question as the 2 reviews above it say our security is way to strict and we do not allow any rucus.
