A combination of Maui's Palm history, great views, rest, excitement and comfort at Aston Maui Lu Oct 16, 2012
The Aston Maui Lu hotel resort is named after a sailing boat "Maui Lu" a boat used by the Canadian millionaire timber Baron James Gordon Gibson. "Lu", by the way, was derived from his first wife's name (Louise). In the 1970s Gibson ran a hotel together with his second wife on a historic coconut grove on the South Shore of Maui. At that time the hotel was the only hotel on the south shore.

In the meantime many nice but mostly horrible hotels have come to the south shore. The coconut grove is still there, with waving palm trees, beautiful flowers, and impeccable manicured lawns. In between all of this spacious are the comfortable units of the Aston Maui Lu hotel situated.

The hotel offers a lot: free parking, tennis courts, a Maui Shaped (!!!) swimming pool, an own tour bureau (that provides a free introduction session with free breakfast the first morning). The hotel has garden units (on the grove) as well as a smaller ocean unit just a few meters from the two (private) beach coves.

The clean rooms come with a personal terrace or balcony, a refrigerator, good beds, a somewhat old fashioned TV (upgrades are on the way), a free local newspaper, a safe (to small to fit a laptop in), an in-room PlayStation®2 console to play DVD movies and games from unlimited access DVDNow kiosk located in the lobby area, free (and fast) WiFi, free local calls, a free discount card for the Foodland Super Markets.

There is however a catch. You will be charged a 10-dollar daily resort fee for all these "free" services. I find it a pity that such a good hotel has to sink as low as using "airline tricks" to beef up revenue.

The fee and an abandoned, spooky decaying ghost wing at the far end of the venue were the only minor points of my very pleasant stay. I can strongly recommend this hotel and I hope to come back here myself some day.

Great Place Oct 02, 2006
I loved our beach access and our friendly neighborhood geckos. They kept the bugs out of our room even with the door open. Other pros include the closeness to the shopping centers and bus routs. The friendly service and the private beach are great perks. The only thing I would put as a con is the lack of wifi in the rooms.

The WiFi has been fixed now. It is free, stable, and pretty fast! The only charge a silly mandatory resort fee that also covers the free WiFi.
