We booked this place and were very happy with the whole experience. The only real drawback was that it was almost an hour's drive from the airport, but that didn't play much of a significant role for us. The people around there are a mixture of owners and people like us, just staying for a few days. Great amenities for... More

I just read a review written by someone after their stay at the Papakea, to which a manager of the Aston responded. Essentially stating the review was inaccurate, the managers response is tooled to make the problems had at the resort simply a matter of misunderstanding or worse, false claims. I too, stayed at the Papakea and I feel compelled... More

We stayed at Papakea unit B205 and loved it. Features we appreciated about this specific unit are 1) it had carpet in the living room and bedroom. I'm not a fan of total tile, it's just not cozy. 2) We always appreciate the in room washer/dryer. 3) I like the mini tub bottom to the shower, vs. a walk in... More

We've stayed here 3 times and enjoy it more every time! We love the location as it's close to some of our favorite beaches: Ka'anapali, Napili and Kapalua. In the winter we see whales right from the resort. Although it doesn't have a sandy beach right in front, you can walk right across to the next door resorts where miles... More

We recently visited Papakea for the 5th time in 10 years. We love the amenities at the resort. The grounds, the putting greens, the pools and hot tubs are wonderful. We've never been there when at least one of the pools or hot tubs has not been broken. It seems to be an ongoing issue at the resort. According to... More

We arrived late at night in early November. Got a free upgrade and did not realize that we now had a gorgeous 2 bedroom condo with a balcony and a spectacular view of Molokai on the left and the West Maui Mountains on the right. The property was kept in excellent condition by the friendly staff. When we noticed that... More

Aston Papakea [aka Vacation International - Papakea] will not book a specific unit for you so it is the luck of the draw as to what you get. If you request a ground floor because of a wheelchair accessibility issue, or because you have a "chase-me" child, they will not even discuss the situation with you. If you go through... More

We reserved a one-bedroom ocean front condo at the Papakea based on the rave reviews I saw here on TripAdvisor. Overall it was OK, but ultimately I felt like I did not get what was advertised on their website. Be warned that many of the condos look NOTHING like the photos on the Aston website.
