    Satisfying Stay

    Got upgraded to beachfront room.

    Good room, just enough to retire at the end of the day, that is if you are planning to go out the rest of the day. Plenty of parking space.

    On your dull moment, count the number of coconut trees in the plantation, that is if you will have dull moments in Maui.

    I would not mind staying here again.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Aston Maui Lu Resort Kihei

    Very disappointed


    Our stay at the Maui Lu was very disappointing. After hearing about how great the island of Maui was and if you go to Hawaii you definitely have to go to Maui,let me warn not stay at the Maui Lu resort. It was very run down and not well kept at all. I was totally disgusted with the stained carpet and curtains. Even after taking a shower( which always flooded) I never felt clean. There was always an odor of some sort in the room. I couldn't wait to come home to wash all my clothes just to get that odor out. That's pretty bad when you go all that way for a vacation and can't wait to get home because your hotel was disgusting. Unfortunately, we had already paid in full months before.

    Post card view


    We were upgraded to an ocean view with a loft. We were approximately 40 ft from the bay. The view was incredible. The loft window was very large and allowed us to a 180 degree view. The only downside was that room service was slower than normal. I had to get towels for both my wife and myself on two of our days. The hotel was a short driving distance to most of the major attractions, stores, and restaurants.

    Wish we were here in 1973


    We got a great deal on the trip, otherwise we would be upset. We are currently here at the Maui Lu on our honeymoon, and can tell this place WAS awesome 25 to 30 years ago. Now it is a run-down place in desperate need of a serious facelift. If you can get a great deal, take your chances and book it. The staff is very friendly, and our room is clean, and the bed is not too bad. Our bathroom fills with water every time the room upstairs runs the shower. We just call the front desk, and they come and clean up the mess without fixing the leak.????!!! Maui is awesome!!

    Very disappointing


    Be forewarned that this is a very old property, and management has made no attempt to upgrade it. We found it to be very run-down. Only 3 rooms actually had king sized beds (and that's if you upgrade), rooms were extremely dark (our "garden view" looked out to the back of the front office), and the beach was terrible compared to what you will find just a few miles away. Don't waste your $$! We cancelled our reservation and moved to the Maui Coast Hotel - for just $40 more per night, we felt like we went from Motel 6 to the Ritz!!

    Nothing to Write Home About


    We upgraded to an oceanfront suite for $40 per night extra. The room had a small ant problem and my wife had a bracelet stolen (99% sure from our room). The room certainly wasn't anything special but offered very nice sunset views in October. The other couple with us had a garden view room, more like a lawn view. The property is run down and has seen better days. I would stay here again only if it is a great the way, don't swim on the Hotel's beach, a waste water treatment plant empties into the water just south of there, the current moves north.

    Great Time


    The grounds were peaceful. The pool was cool. Our room was on the ocean. There was a small area for sunning on the beach. You could walk for lng distances along the beach right out your door. Our room was clean. We did not have bugs. The staff was helpful and friendly. The place was not new and activities were limited. (No night life). Parking by the beachfront rooms was very limited. It looked like a nice family hotel. There were games and a things available for families. We enjoyed doing our laundry with the chameleons (spelling?). We would stay there again.

    Nothing too special...


    I recently stayed at the Aston Maui Lu hotel, and when I return to Maui, I will think twice about staying there again. When we drove up the enterance way to the hotel, one side was a nice grassy area, however the other side looked like time forgot it. There were a bunch of old, run down buildings that looked as if they once belonged to the Maui lu since they were on their property. The guy who checked us in was great, very friendly ... and another staff member met us at our car once we parked to carry our bags up the stairs to our room... I have to say the staff were very friendly. The garden area was not much of a garden, it was just a grassy area w/some walk pathways leading to the popl, laundry facility and the main lodge. The pool was very simple, and very cold. The main lodge was no longer a "lodge" , it looked as though one time, long ago, they had a resteraunt, hair salon and gift shop. The laundry facility was hot, and dirty, and not something i would use ... and the bungalos looked as though they were ready to fall down, they were old and looked as though no one has bothered to update them or pain them since the property opened. I found the rooms to be quite large for Hawaii, but nothing special. They were not as clean as I would have liked, the Lanai was quite large but overrun by bugs and spiders, and the couch and chairs were stained and not clean. I personally would not pay to stay here again and am hesitant about other Aston properties.

    Buyer beware!!!


    When my husband and I drove up the drive to the Maui Lu Resort, we could see how wonderful the resort was-30 years ago! The main lodge that used to be the restaurant was closed and falling apart along with bungalos that surrounded the property. For the money my husband and I spent we knew we were not going to be staying in a 5 star resort. We did however expect a clean room. The only positive note about our beach front room was the spectacular view. For 7 days and six nights we struggled with ants, beetles, and earwigs. The resort claimed that the whole island was struggling with a beetle problem, but when we demanded that they spray the room, they miraculously disappeared. When I found earwigs in my bed on the second night I no longer had a good nights sleep for the rest of the stay. (Other vacationers we spoke with had no idea there was a beetle problem since their resorts dealt with such problems before guests could see them.) And you don't want to know the size of the bugs I found in the laundry room! When we came back each day from gorgeous beaches we just wanted to relax in our rooms which was difficult to do when the couch looked like a dog had eaten it, the curtains and carpet had stains which looked similar to blood and were all around filthy, dust everywhere, the shower curtain was yellowed with age and torn-come on Aston how much is a shower curtain?-$5? There was lizard poop on the windows and light fixtures and dead lizards in the air conditioner. And the resorts so called two private beaches-one beach was covered with rocks (I only saw a dog try and wade out among them) and the other was only big enough for 3 or 4 lounge chairs that were usually covered by the tide and sand for about 20 hours of the day. The only solace we found is when we left the hotel right after dawn, spent our days at the most beautiful beaches we've ever witnessed, ate at wonderful restaurants, and drove around the island to visit Hana, went horseback riding, went snorkeling and tried snuba, then went ba ... (which is hard when bugs are dive bombing your head in the middle of the night). The time we spent getting ready each day to leave the resort was trying-the plumbing did not work, when they came to fix our toilet, we used the bathroom of a empty room a few doors down only to realize that toilet did not work either. If we had the equipment we would have camped out on the beach like so many smart beach bums did. Hey Aston, after reading other reviews of other Aston resorts why are you still in business? Because people like us are tricked into to good to be true deals, by wonderful looking pictures and false advertisements. Buyer beware, don't be as dumb as we were to think that you could save some money on the trip of a lifetime. Talk to other people that have stayed at the islands, talk to travel agents and don't believe advertisements even by the websites that claim the resorts are fabulous. We are still waiting for an apology from Expedia--we won't hold our breath, they already have our money.

    I liked it


    It doesn't have too many frills, but is a nice place to stay. It's pretty much on the ocean and is a nice green property. It's mellow and laid back. I preffer it over huge hotels that have thousands of people stay in them.

    A Bed and a Room


    The Maui Lu was not bad, but not a superb hotel either. Pros: Nice property, quiet, not too over crowded. Cons: Staff not overly eager to help (even pushy at times), some rooms are pretty far from the parking area, no entertainment, poor beach, bedding lacks comfort.

    Day 19: Ziplining at Kaa'anapli

    A travel blog entry by karenlhorne on Aug 22, 2015

    Although this is our rest place, it is a good location to try zip lining. This involves going along a course of nearly horizontal zip wires, some typically 250 - 500 m long. They are all over Hawaii but Maui has some of the longest. We go for Skyline Ecotours. There are eight lines on the course. We check in near our hotel and then go in a van up a dusty and bumpy track (suddenly it makes sense why they asked us to put on our hard hats before we set off!). After about 20 mins ...

    ... darker and where the majority of local Hawaiians live. What remaims of the real Hawaii feels lodged in the dogeared small towns of the unpopular east coast. I think I prefer it over here.

    We sail out of Honalulu at around 6PM and then loop around top of the cleverly named 'Big Island' before docking in a small town called Hilo on the east coast. Immediately you feel you are in a greener, wilder and more agricultural place, far removed from the glitzy malls of downtown ...

    We found couple of new gardens that we didn't know about before. First up was Maui Nui in Kahului. Their focus is growing plants that are native. We had a tour by Kaoni (John). We learned how Ti leaves are used for healing, Anapanapa is used as a soap, Noni as a general tonic, and more. Very unique. Then we went to The Sacred Garden. It was different as well. Very Zen. Lots ...
