"This was a family vacation with our daughters and their families. We each had our own condo at the Whaler.
Our condo was perfect for me and my husband. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and had our breakfast on the lanai every morning. The condo was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, etc. The bed was ultra comfortable which is hard to find in a hotel or condo. I liked the Whaler because it was close to shopping at the Whaler's Village and many activities were available. Another plus, you just walk out your condo and you're on the beach. This trip was planned by my daughters for my 75th birthday and 30th wedding anniversary. These memories will be forever cherished!"

"Enjoyed our stay. Very spacious and clean. Loved the incidentals that were mentioned in other reviews. The hot tub failed to stay warm. The weather was significantly wet. Neither of these can be controlled by Fred and Luba. The only other comment is about the beach. So close, and yet so far. Difficult to walk on sand because of the lava reefs and tides. Lovely views, wonderful whale watching."

"In the past five years, this was our fourth visit to Maui, second time staying at the Whaler and the first in Tripta's condo. We consider ourselves very cost conscious vacationers and the value of the view and location to the cost was excellent. The condo is very well kept and worked perfectly for us. Even with only two of us in the condo it was nice to have two bathrooms with showers to get ready in the morning or for dinner. Everything in the condo was in perfect working condition and having Netflix was a nice bonus for us. Also, the washer and dryer was very nice to have. Next time we will pack a little lighter. Booking with Tripta was easy and was nice to be able to use a credit card. We hope to become regulars here for our future trips to Maui.
Recommendations – Check the weather before venturing to Haleakala or going on the road to Hana. This was the first time we took this into consideration and it made the trips very enjoyable. Pay the extra money to enjoy a meal at Mama’s Fish House near Paia. Kimo’s in Lahaina was great, probably our second best meal after Mama’s. Each year we eat at Leilani’s and Hula Grill at Whaler Village and Leilani’s is always is a little better in both food and service. Ate that Duke’s for the first time and the food was good and the walk to the beach afterwards for sunset was amazing. Lahaina Fish Company in Lahaina was average but was wouldn’t go again. For fish taco’s we though Coconuts in Kihei was the best until we tried Maalaea General Store behind the Maui Ocean Center. They had the best fish tacos by far. Coconuts is good fast food and worth the visit. Very friendly people."

"We've been coming to Maui regularly for the past 15 years and this has been our favorite trip so far. The location of the Whaler is absolutely excellent. We loved the superb swimming beach and the proximity to Whaler's Village for great meals at Leilani's and Hula Grill. We also really enjoyed the pool which always had loungers available and was not as noisy as most since the resort doesn't have many young kids about. Please note that the pool is deep -- 4"ft - 6ft which was too deep for our very tall 6yo to stand.
The unit itself was very nice with a beautiful ocean view and all the amenities we needed. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable but the sofa bed would have been very uncomfortable for adults. Our 6 yo didn't seem to mind.
Ashvin was a pleasure to work with. Thanks for a great stay and we look forward to coming back on future trips."
