Spent our wedding anniversary in Maui, stayed for 3 nights there was a problem in the bathroom with the first apartment,so we were upgraded to a beautiful apartment in the main building. Staff were lovely the manager sent us wine/ chocolates to our apartment. We hired beach chairs so didn't use the pool but it did look nice surrounded by beautiful gardens . We enjoyed our trip to Kihei ,Maui and will never forget it thankyou for making it memorable.

This hotel is comprised of individually owned condo units centrally managed by Aston. There is a separate hotel, the Maui Banyan, in the front, closest to the street/beach, then a separately managed condo structure, followed by the four Aston managed condo structures at the rear, furthest from the street/beach. The furthest condo, latest in the alpha, would be 400 meters from the street.
Massive parking structure, lower levels are reserved for permanent residents, thus usually need to go to the rooftop.
Each condo unit comes equipped with a full kitchen. The unit, sofa, carpet, and blankets had a stale smell. Being aligned vertically toward the ocean, ocean views were partial. Otherwise, it was functional and close enough to a nice wide white sand beach.
Service was nonchalant. Front desk was rigid with a 4PM check-in and 11AM check-out. Rules stated to empty trash upon check-out, a bit away being next to the parking structure. We were miffed when searching for the trash bin, asked a custodian in a cart, who verbalized the directions, then ended up seeing him there ... why didn't he offer to take our one bag of rubbish in his nearly empty cart???
Many similar choices along the Kihei/Wailea coastline. Would only stay here again if the price is right.
