                        The location is fantastic, rigth on the beach and there is a cement walk which links various different proporties on the beach, specialy the shoping center The Whalers Village with everything you need to cook your own brekfast, lunch or dinner in your apartment. Besides there are at least four restaurants if you don't feel like doing anything. If you want to enjoy a boat/ sailing trip to whale watch or snorkling they are available rigth on the beach, you don't need to use a car. In fact you probably will be using very litle if ever a car, which is wonderful.

                        The Whailers is not a hotel. It has apartments to rent. So don't expect a hotel service. The south side of the tower 2 is very noisy because of the shoping center just out of your window. Ask for another location if noise is something that bothers you as it does me. Besides the Village noise there was a construction on the building. The general manager Hal transferd us to a central garden apartment which was excelent.

                        Location is perfect. Right close to Whaler's village, so no deficit of restaurants and right on Kaanapali beach. If you want one of the best snorkeling with sea turtles on Maui - Black Rock is just 300m to the North from hotel.

                        To be honest I didn't get why it has 5 stars - didn't see anything outstanding compared to other 4 star resorts nearby. Not saying that it's bad - but just don't expect to see extra star. Pool is also a bit small.

                        Well run facility. Great place to relax. Enjoyed having kitchen a dining table in the room. It's quiet and most people go to bed early and get up early. Great hot tub and pool. We used it most nights and were the only ones around. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants some R & R.

                        I had to call the IT provider to get I Pad connected to the Internet. It should have been easier. That was the only negative. Everything else exceeded expectations.

                        Best Hi rise hotel/condo location on Kanapalli beach next to Black Rock. Parking undergrond a plus.Very knowledgable concerige.

                        Fridge had to be replaced during our stay. No ice maker. staff did accomadate and provide ice when needed. Last day of our trip water was turned off due to and emergency which caused us to have a late check out.

                        It was one of the cheapest options, yet it was an excellent room in a great location. Incredible beach, and a large room with a full kitchen that came with blender, coffee maker, pots and pans, full fridge etc. There is also a great balcony with an amazing view of the ocean.

                        Loved the location; convenient for shops, local busses, wonderful restaurants, fantastic beach just ssteps away and could enjoy tge vuew if the ocean from the condo also.. Only drawback is that it was a bit expensive for me since I stayed alone, but for two people it is a good value! And you could also sleep a small child in same room, if necessary.

                        It's location was great and the room was well maintained.

                        Did not like that there were no restaruants for bars on site. Plus my living room only had chairs and no couches.

                        Extremely well maintained property with friendly staff. We chose a studio room but should have paid more for a one bedroom room based on previous experience.

                        I thought the room has Great and a full kitchen with new appliances would make a long stay perfect. The room was spacious even though mass construction was going on but when it is all completed it's a good place for the price.

                        The construction did get a little annoying.
