The Whaler is #18 out of 30 hotels/condos in North Maui.
The Whaler’s 360 condos, were built in 1976 at the start of the crazy building spree on Maui. Each condo is individually owned or is owned by one of several timeshare organizations that bought up condos when the building boom of the mid 70′s died out. Each owner can remodel their condo anyway they want and when you rent a Whaler you get pot luck as to how old the furnishings are and how good the taste of the owner is.
The ONLY things going for the Whaler are cheap prices and being next door to Whaler’s Village – beyond that this tired old condo complex looks sad and the pool area is a practical joke. There are many old-timers, especially folks from Canada, that love this resort and come back year after year – well until they stumble on the Honua Kai and then they happily abandon the old place.
I found a bunch of pictures of the resort and inside that follow – you compare what you see to the #1 resort on Maui, The Honua Kai, and see if the small amount of money you save at The Whaler is really worth it.
(There is renovation taking place at The Whaler – construction crews busy renovating so prices are lower than ever)
The following price quotes contain EVERYTHING – resort fees and all taxes except Transient Accommodations Tax which you pay as you check out – applies only to timeshares.
