Best scuba class

I recently took a scuba class at the Aston Kaanapali shores resort with Jim Brown and had an amazing time. I’m not the strongest swimmer and was a wee bit nervous. Jim was very hands on and patient. We had about an hour class then got in the pool for another hour. Jim went through the class material in the pool, everything we needed to know for our first dive. You can go out in ocean right after class but I chose to dive next because I had something to do that day. I would recommend you do everything in one day so class is fresh in your mind.It was awesome experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Took me out to a reef offshore. I saw many of the reefs inhabitants including a sea turtle. Best time ever thanks to Jim Brown

Not a 5 star for same reason as many others have stated here. Rooms vary depending on the owner, a bit dated, but that doesn't bother me usually. Location is nice, food truck park right behind hotel which is fun for dinner(s). Lots of stores next to it as well. The pools are nice but nothing special. The beach there is essentially washed out, but the views are great. Again the price makes you think you will be getting a little more, but the central location to everything is why I chose this place, so in general no complaints.

Stayed in an oceanview 2-bedroom. Furnishings were a bit dated but kitchen and bath were recently renovated. I understand these are owner-furnished so they may vary by room. The first night our air conditioning stopped working but someone came by to fix it very quickly. There is one restaurant on property. The food was okay, but service was good. Bar drinks were very watered down. The location is very central with grocery and lots of hotels and restaurants nearby. Two pools and beach on property and the whole area was very tropical, clean and well-kept. We only went to the oceanview pool but I really wish they reserved one of the pools for adults only as there were are a lot of kids in summer in both.
Good place just near the beach
We received a studio with kitchen that was very spacious with all the right utilities. The kitchen is fully equipped. The rooms are clean, however the cleaning crew could run late. The pools area and the beach access is just perfect.

We traveled with our 3 adult children in August for a family getaway. The property grounds were very well maintained and beautiful. The “yard” games, tennis court and shuffle board area were nice to have and we did play. Both pools were clean and beautiful especially at night when they were lit up. The ocean was a bit rocky in the water, recommend wearing water shoes. However the water was nice and you could snorkel and see fish. The beach is self was nice soft sand. We also rented boogie boards from the onsite vendor which was reasonable and easy and fun. There is no shade at the ocean side pool which was disappointing, however the main pool had shaded areas. Towels were always available. We had a 2 bed/2 bath suite with a partial view of the ocean and main view of the ocean side pool. The room is self was large and spacious although it could have been a little cleaner (we did see 2 roaches (to be expected when in a tropical climate). The decor and furniture was dated. Staff at the property were friendly and helpful. Check in and out was easy and smooth. It did cost $9 a day to park. The restaurant on site was a bit pricey, but had very good food and service. We had dinner there our first night and the calamari was excellent. We did Oceanside massages which were nice and the staff friendly, but I’d recommend just getting them done in the spa as the Oceanside tent left something to be desired.
