Perfect for a familiy!

Aston at Papakea is a great family resort. It's not complicated to get to, conveniently close to grocery stores and restaurants and wonderfully laid back. The room we were lucky enough to get was ground level, with very easy access to the waterfront, pool and BBQ's. The patio is a touch small, but it's not that big of a deal. The room could use with a bit of updating, as it is a little dated, but that wasn't the end of the world. The kitchen appliances all worked with no issues, as did the washer and dryer. The washer and dryer are a little small, so you'll probably have to do a few more loads of laundry than normal, but can't be too picky. The room fit our family of five without a problem at all and we all had enough space to stretch out without feeling too crowded which was also nice. We'd definitely return given the chance!
Our favorite place to stay
We stayed here for 10 days in an ocean front room. The room and the view was amazing, I love that it had air conditioning as well. This will always be our first choice when booking a trip to Maui. It was perfect!
Papakea is nice

There are many units so I am sure there is a wide spectrum of experiences one may have. The resort grounds are well taken care of. It was a quiet and peaceful location with no obnoxious music or road noise. The games of shuffleboard and putting green were great. What knocked this down? A really poor (painful) mattress in our unit was a big reason. There was also obstructed access to the ocean and no places that were shaded for hours long lounging.. Again depending on the unit you get the mattress may be fine.
Nice resort for the price

We’ve been staying at the Papakea since 2006 and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stays. The resort condos are a bit dated and could use some renovation. But for the price you can’t beat the oceanfront views. The only major downside is their is no beach.
Very nice quiet resort

What we loved the most was that we could walk outside and we were literally on the water. We loved having a kitchen and washer/dryer. We we fell in love with the sound of the waves all through the night
