I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel/ resort having read the very negative comments on trip adviser. Sure, it is an old structure, but the room was light and airy, the bed comfortable, and it was spotlessly clean- what more do you want? The reception/ bell staff were really helpful. Food at the Royal Ocean Terrace was good and...

First of all, this is an old motel type property. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel, then this isn't for you but there is a reason why it is cheaper than other properties on Kaanapali. We arrived in our rental car, found the road for Royal Lahaina off Highway 30 easily and then just followed the signs to...

Check-in clerk was rude because I booked online instead of direct. Couldn't find hotel (on a huge property with other hotels) so I asked bellhop and he sensed there was no big tip coming from me so he gave vague directions knowing all too well that I would get lost again. Found hotel- old 3 story building with no elevators....

This is de deal about the hotel: It's the old-non renovated building of a nice resort. So you get to enjoy the stay at a resort by paying a small portion by sleeping on a crapy room, which we didn't care since we spent most of the day out, we paid 100 dlls per night, compared to other hotels in...

We jumped at the opportunity to book a trip to Maui on the cheap. Thanks to an offer that dropped into our inbox from Groupon advertising a 5-night stay for $725 + 13.417% tax (paid directly to Royal Lahaina resort). All in all it was about $155/night to stay right on Kaanapali Beach! Once you take into account all that...

After flying or being in an Airport for 12 hours, I needed a shower. I checked in on a Friday late afternoon, I didn't check for towels before my shower. After taking my shower all I could find were two hand towels, which I used. After drying, I called housekeeping, and in an hour I was given two bath towels....

This "hotel" should be torn down. The 2 story building is literally falling apart, full of mold, bugs and filth. I walked in and walked out when I saw the bugs on the bathroom counters, the walls in the bathroom pealing off exposing black mold. I would rather sleep on the street than stay in this dump. I ended up...

This is definately not your dream vacation hideaway, but if you are desperate to get to Maui/Kaanapali and stay on the beach, then this may just fit the bill. A friend and I were looking for a cheap getaway and this was the only affordable option for us. The room was very small and smelled musty. Not a lot of...

My husband and I stayed here for our one year anniversary in August 2010. This is definitely not the most luxurious resort in all of Hawaii - but it was great for us. The rooms were not that spectacular but it was in a great location. We went to the luau on the property which was very entertaining and the...

This is not the ideal place to stay, but it's what one tries to accept if you are on a very tight budget & need to stay in Lahaina.
