Our 1st trip to Hawaii was made even better by our stay at the Aston Papakea. It is a great condominium resort and lived up to all the comments, pictures, etc. listed on the website. We had a 2br/2ba condo ocean view unit. Being the skeptic that I am, I assumed that our 'ocean view' might mean a glimpse of the ocean from the bathroom but I was wrong. We had a full view of the ocean from our private lanai. Buildings are situated on the property at an angle and most units provide a great view. Also a view of the well-manicured/landscaped grounds including pool, jacuzzi, putting green and lush koi ponds. The unit was clean, spacious and housekeeping service was reliable. No problem with check in/out. The only thing was that it was a little noisy early in the morning for the room that backed up to the walkway. But I think travellers get up earlier because most of them are on 'mainland time'. Nice shopping center across the street, islands shops down the street. Beach in front is small, but you have access to beaches next door. The only other thing that I wasn't expecting is that while the property address is Lahaina, we were actually above Ka'anapali, about 5 miles north of Lahaina. Not a big deal but it was difficult to find that first night. When I go back to Maui next time, I would definetly consider staying at this resort again!
