Really cool watch the fish feeding at the pond. I think for my 3 years old daughter that was the best part of vacation. Generally I...

Aloha Alexei, We appreciate your review and that you found our staff to be friendly and helpful. Also happy to hear that your daughter enjoyed the fish feeding.

This place is paradise. My husband and I took our 5 year old son and we all had a lot to do. To beach is connected to the property so you don't have far to walk if you are carrying stuff to enjoy on the beach. The water is warm and lots of sand to play in. About a quarter...

Great condo, everything you need for a great vacation. All cookware and even a blender for frosty drinks. Unit well maintained, comfortable, garden view actually has a Ocean View as well. Great location in the middle of Kannapali Beach, within walking distance of Black Rock. You can watch the locals dive off with torches at sunset. They were doing construction...

After a bad experience with the Marriott Ocean Club we needed a place to stay for the remaining 6 days of our vacation. We lucked out when we found the Aston at The Whaler.

We have stayed here several times but not for 4 years. Last time we noted that upgrades were needed. This time we came to find out major upgrades have indeed been made. Very convenient location near Whaler's Village and the mile+ walkway that spans the beach front of several hotels and restaurants.

The furniture looks like it came from the 1980's and cleanliness varies from room to room, but it's by the water and in a decent location and there are balconies and you can even cook your own overpriced food from Safeway.
