If you’re looking for a beachfront condominium style resort where you can pursue your passion for active living, then you can’t do better than the Aston at Papakea Resort. Situated on 13 beautifully manicured acres overlooking the Kaanapali Coast, the resort offers two swimming pools and jet spas, lighted tennis courts, two 12-hole putting greens, picnic areas with barbecue grills and poolside cabanas for lounging.
The resort personnel are a LOT more interested in what you are not allowed to do than they are seeing that you have a great time there. We called to ask that the table top be attached to the base, (2 screws that had come loose) but they couldn't do anything about that. They said "call the owner" but didn't have contact info for the owner. Likewise the undersink cabinet door that had come off (another screw loose). But they were johnny on the spot if we put a pool floatie on the balcony to dry, if we were playing cards IN THE UNIT with the balcony door open after lockdown hours, or if we were even playing in the pool with our granddaughters. If you're old, go to bed a 8:00, and don't mind unit maintenance not done, then this is the place for you. If you're interested in a whole family vacation from grandkids to grandparents, then I suggest looking elsewhere. Friendliness factor pretty much nonexistent.
Aston Condo Papakea Unit A305 Ocean Front
Great property and highly recommend this resort.
I have stayed here several times, this is the first time through the Aston themselves versus an individual owner. We loved Unit A-305 - oceanfront. Great unit, updated.
The bathroom has a walk in tiled shower - nice! Granite counter tops, single sink. It had very nice storage if needed.
Bedroom - had AC unit. Closer with sliding glass doors. Bed itself was comfortable and a king size bed - only comment is needed more lighting. Ceiling fan.
Kitchen is good sized. Granite counter tops, dishwasher, electric stove, microwave. Everything needed to cook if you wanted to do so. Nice wrap around sit counter.
Living room was open to kitchen and dining area. Flat screen TV. Rattan furniture - maybe a bit worn, but not bad. AC in living area as well.
Balcony - had an awesome view of the ocean out front. Loved it. Table and 4 chairs on the balcony.
Could hear the ocean at night - waves - nice and relaxing. Elevators in the building and we had free parking. Wifi worked great. Quiet, did not hear the neighbors.
2 pools on the property and hot tubs. Access to the beach out front (sea wall), but mostly sandy with a couple of reefs. We got in no problem.
Couple of tennis courts = need reservations.
Area - great - walking distance (easy) to shops, food, bar, etc. Food truck court right next door for dinner which was great. Easy walk to the Kanaapali walk way.
Staff was great and responsive.
Would stay here again no worries.

The air conditioning units are on timers. A bit of a pain but better than no ac. We had a 3rd floor ocean facing unit. Beautiful view. Some noise from neighbors but the ocean waves and ac noise drowned out some of it. Very nice updated kitchen and bath. 2 hot tubs in common areas that we used each night. Just had to check both to see which was the quietest. Most of the other residents were friendly/helpful. Saw a monk seal out front one day, awesome experience. Best place to eat was the food truck parking lot down the road. Best walking path was the public access/parking for the beach just past the food truck parking lot. Quietest beach was Oneloa, a 15 minute drive north.
Beautiful and convenient location in West Maui.
Resort complex has multiple one and two bedroom units in 4-storey buildings.
Two large swimming pools and on the waterfront.
Parking seems plentiful and resort is easily accessible to the highway to the rest of the island.
Stores and groceries are very near.
There are no restaurant or bars on the property but surrounded by resorts with such facilities.

Beautiful views of Lanai and Kahoolawe right off you Lanai.
Quiet, Relaxing. *if you have a kitchen in your unit. watch out for cockroaches.
Other than that we enjoyed our stay.
