Aloha Mary, First of all, we are very sorry to hear of your loss and wish you and yours the comfort of family and friends at this difficult time. While I am not in a position to assist those whose financial transactions are with individual owners of condos, I am the person who generally replies to all reviews that have to do with this resort. As such, I will be sure to share your comments regarding your experience with those you have referenced in your review. Again, very sorry to hear of your loss. Kind regards, Scott

We have been staying at the Whaler (look up Whaler1224.com) for 4 weeks every November for years. When you read the negative reviews you wonder where these people were! It does occur to me that units overlooking Whaler’s Village are probably less attractive, but overall the compl

Aloha 4Travellers1, Happy Holidays and thank you for your review of 1224. Delighted to hear you have found a slice of paradise that keeps you coming back each year. Sorry we can't silence the delivery trucks, though I think perhaps if they replaced the reverse beeping with Don Ho's "Tiny Bubbles" it would be a great change. Anyway, we are happy to have you as a repeat guest to The Whaler and look forward to being of service next year! Best Regards, Scott

We have had the fortune of being able to visit Maui now 4 times! It is heaven on earth! This our first visit to the Aston Whaler, right by the ocean! The location is perfect being by the ocean with an excellent view and a short walk to the boardwalk and the nearby village square.

I reserved a premium ocean view studio. But now looking at floor plans I don’t even see a bed? There will just be 2 of us but I want a king sized bed. What’s the best room size to get?
Call the Whaler and speak to the front desk they are very helpful.

Is there a daily resort fee? Thanks!
Yes there is, I think $20 day. Includes parking at the resort, beach towels, chairs, and laundry facilities.

Hi, is construction work still being done at Whalers Village? I am concerned about noise on that side of Tower II. Thank you. I also heard that work is being done on the roof of both towers, so that high floors are noisy?
All the construction work on both buildings and the ground is complete. Owners of some condo units are going through remodelling so that their units can claim "De Luxe" status, and hence, charge higher room rates by the Aston Hotel reservation. So, the construction noise coming from an individual room renovation is still on-going, but it is at the room level, not the building or the ground. Cheers! When are you going to the Whalers?

What does the resort fee include & is it worth it without a car?
Not sure what resort fee includes. Call the front desk and they can tell you. It is a lovely place to stay and staff is friendly. We had a rental car but there were many things we walked to. There is a bus stop at Whalers Village and there are shuttles which you can ask the staff about. They will be able to give you details. It depends on how long you are staying. More than a few days a car would be nice.
