At The Maui Banyan, you don’t have to compromise. With two pools, a tennis court, a swimming beach across the street, and a range of unit types (rooms and condos), you can have
everything you need on vacation, including the satisfaction that you are getting a great value. Our condos come equipped with kitchens and laundry or take a true break from it all and stay in a hotel room. You may never want to leave the property, but if you do be sure to enjoy nearby golf courses, great restaurants and shops in neighboring Kihei and Wailea.
Decent stay. The location was awesome. Probably the best part of staying here all together. We were able to walk to most places to eat and drive about 5-10 minutes to other places. The beach was right across.
I love that they have a covered parking area, we didn’t have to put the top of our Jeep on until we got there late one night and had to park on the top floor of the garage. That only happened once though.
Housekeeping was okay. They barely made it to our room, they came at such odd hours. Would show up at 2/3 when normally we would be back at the room to rest.
Front desk was very helpful and welcoming.
It was a nice place, great location.
Good Location and Safe
(Lees Summit Missouri)
Good: covered parking is an option; Studio condo apartment was clean; Had a mini-fridge with mini freezer, microwave, dishes. Lots of channels on tv. Good views. Short walk to restaurants, beach. It is set back from the road so its quiet at night.
Not so good: Water pressure in shower was DISMAL--as was the temperature (we had to run the shower for about 5 minutes to get it to be something other than icewater). The AC unit was on its last legs as it took a good 40 min to get where we wanted the temperature at our first arrival. WE booked this through VRBO and dealt directly with the owner, so no problems checking in. However, when we went to the front desk, the personnel were extremely unhelpful, so I was glad our owner gave us all the check-in information ahead.of time.
Overall, it was a good centrally-located place to stay without the expense of Lahaina.
Pay attention to the office hours
My wife, my teenager and me arrived one Friday night a few minutes past eleven. Sadly reception closes at that hour. Even if two guys were inside, nobody looked at us. Nobody gave us any direction and stayed outside to call our tour operator...
In a metter of 10 minutes a security man on charge told us to take the phone outside to talk at a call center. And we did, the lady made us open a safe and found inside an envelope. Inside direction to go to our suite. “Well done” I said, but then he keys didn’t work... So I went back to the phone. Another lady answered, controlled and told me the room was not 203 but 205. Back again to my family hoping this time is the right one: no, the 205 room doesn’t exist. Now I’m upset. I called the call center once again, explained to another girl what happened. She said she would check what happened and call me back. It was 1 am. I called again and again. Nothing happened. I told my family to prepare to sleep in the car. But when our hope was about to vanish, something came true.
The security man finally had his boss’ ok to let us enter the room 203. At 2 am!!!
The room was comfortable but old fashioned. Bathroom little but the suite was large. Noisy air conditioning directly from the ‘70 (conditioning was on all day long and turned off at night but we used fan to sleep).
At this moment you probably asked yourself what was ok... well directly in front of the resort you find Kamaole beach II, one of the best in Kihei. Let’s think about this.
Nevertheless Maui was a great holiday. We didn’t let Aston ruin our vacation.
Please consider to arrive before 11pm if you choose Aston Maui Banyan.
If you like condos then a reasonable option
We do not like Condos, but in Maui, in Kihei they are about your only real option unless you stay in a splurge hotel. The room we had (310a) was small, but tastefully decorated in an albeit bland way. We were a little surprised because we thought we had a room with a kitchenette, but that is locked away in the rest of room 310. Check that if you are counting on such. Car parking is onsite (but you only get to use unreserved spots on a first come first served basis), as are good swimming pools. Wifi worked well, but a noisy through the wall old style AC unit was obnoxious to the point we turned it off - but without a ceiling fan it got a bit clammy overnight. The beach is right over the road as there are good restaurants a short walk or drive away. This part of Kihei has lots of life (unlike nearby walled off Wailea), and that is Kihei's saving grace - despite the bland condos...
We stayed here for 10 days in the middle of June. We had a one bedroom condo with two bathrooms. The room was spacious and clean. We had a kitchenette which was a great way to save money and take a break from eating out. The grounds were maintained and the location was amazing. You are walking distance to many restaurants and beaches. The staff were friendly. I recommend booking excursions with the Expedia rep in the lobby, he was super nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning to visit Maui.
