This is our first time in Maui, HI and I would say, I did the right choice picking the Royal Lahaina. My family and I stayed here last June 25 up to the 30th from COSTCO travel package with airfare & transportation. We loved this accommodation. Clean room with protective mattress cover. This is normally the very first thing we do when we get to our hotel room, check the bed & the beddings. This hotel is just a few meters from the beach, the Kaanapali Beach shores to be precise. If you want to have a little exercise early in the morning or want to have a little time by yourself, it's nice, just try it. The Kaanapali shores is a nice 6 miles walk to and back. Another, It has it's own restaurant, an ice cream place, nice two pool side, one from 4 feet to 6 feet and the other from 4 feet to 9 feet, which we always pick because there's not much people and my 2 girls love the 9 feet because they just have it by themselves. They have bungalows too that maybe we'll pick this next time just to check it out. Close to the pool side, they have the bean bag toss game area and the shuffleboard like game next to it. Really a nice place to unwind! Aside from this, it is close to Myths Of Maui Luau, another few meters walk. No parking, no problem. They have a shuttle train, a shuttle bus that looks like a train carriage that will take you to the Whalers Village if you don't feel walking going here to shop around. In conclusion, I gave it only a 4-star because: (1) NO MICROWAVE! This is my number 1. I hate it when this happened. There's no point to buy those food that needs to be reheated. <smh> I guess this place means business really. They didn't put microwaves so that you'll have to use their restaurant downstairs to have your breakfast, which I find it a bit pricey. Smart right? NOT! <smh> (2) The building is kinda old. Even though it has clean beddings, the room is old and their carpets have a bit of stains all over. (3) Not much parking. They share their parking with Kaanapali Ocean Inn (KOI) and the Myths Of Maui Luau. They have more space in their own valet parking that you can't park if you're not doing the valet and you can have a ticket if you park on your own in this spot. <smh> Anyways, the Luau is everyday and it starts at 5pm to 8pm. The thing is, we normally get back around 5 to 6pm from driving around, and getting a parking spot is a headache. On the bright side, this place is really nice for families especially with kids and for adults that are into golf. Their golf course is so nice & big. The hotel's staff are so affable. I highly recommend this place and we'll be back here for sure and will try their bungalows next time. Mahalo!

Hotel's Favourite
This was my very first time staying at the Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui and by far the most memorable vacation that I will never forget! I was immediately welcomed when I arrived in their beautiful lobby by their friendly staff who made me feel at home. The resort is just steps away from the beach where you can watch humpback whales and go for a swim. The resort offers activities the traditional Hiu Wai which is a Hawaiian Cleansing Ceremony at sunrise. This is a must-do! My room was very clean and the balcony views of the ocean were breathtaking. The thing that I most appreciated about this resort was that it made us feel like family! Every employee on property greeted us with a smile and warm hello or farewell. I highly recommend this amazing property. Will definitely be back.

This place is amazing first off! But you are only as strong as your weakest link. The manger is absolutely impossible to get in touch with and when you do she won't help. The bar staff is the strongest link in this place. I travel 6 times a year and I have never meet such nice bartenders. Grant and Jonathan are amazing! And I only say my overall rating is terrible, because of the female manger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful stay! Our room was clean and the views were amazing! The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the girl that checked us in.The location of the hotel could not be better , the beach is beautiful and not crowded . Restaurant was convenient and delicious especially for days we were too tired from snorkeling and swimming to venture to the super cute town of Lahaina nearby. Will definitely be back .

Just updating here as I can’t get anyone to get back to me regarding a detailed bill. I have asked for that to be emailed to me 4 times now and nobody has even responded. Makes me wonder if they have a detailed bill at all? No idea why I was charged what I was charged. Royal Lahaina are you will to get back to me??

Older hotel, no USB plugins, no microwave, pay extra for beach chairs and umbrella (picture of pool on website is NOT accurate) diners overlook the pool so they can watch you swim or sunbathe, small workout room. $30.00 a day to park your car. The beach was nice and the cleaning staff was wonderful. The room was clean and great shower pressure. I am trying to find more positive attributes…….

Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are so sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are an older property however we do out best to provide a fantastic experience to all our our guests with our amenities and activities provided. We do have three pools and so if the restaurant overlooking the main pool was undesirable, we do have two other pools available (as well as the beach) to enjoy. All room amenities and inclusions are listed on our website along with pricing and so we are very sorry to read that you were unaware of the resort fees and that microwaves are not included in some of our room types. We hope that you had a lovely stay otherwise and should you return, we would be happy to review our rooms and inclusions to ensure that you have the best experience possible.

While there’s nothing particularly wrong with this place, it really failed to wow us either. First, you pay a daily parking fee PLUS a resort fee. It’s all just fees to disguise the cost. I wouldn’t mind the parking fee but when there’s a luau going on it’s impossible to find a spot. They should have exclusive parking for guests at that rate or a paid section so those who don’t mind a good hike to their car can do that. We checked in and asked about an upgrade. In all our travels and stays if there’s an upgraded room available it’s given. This hotel however offered us the upgrade by asking us to pay the difference. The room was vacant, you have the choice of wowing a guest who could then share their experience and draw in more guests. Instead, make a quick buck. Finally we get our room. It was an oceanfront and very nice. One thing we noted however is that there are no mirrors accessible for shaving or doing makeup. The vanity sink is separate from the bathroom and faces the open space. If you need to shave or put on makeup you’re awkwardly facing to the side or standing at a full length mirror. This is an easy fix they could address. Also, the door to the adjoining room is a hollow door. We could hear everything clear as day going on next door. Others mentioned it in reviews and I can confirm it was a nuisance! The staff were very friendly. The food and drinks were fine. Honestly nothing worth writing about. This place is all about location and for that it’s worth while. When checkout time came we asked for a late checkout. So instead of 11 we got to stay all the way until noon. Not only was that the only time extension allowed, but the hotel staff were literally standing by our door at about 11:45 until we left. It was uncomfortable and tacky. Oh, there is ZERO shade at the pools. They could put up sun sails or something but instead you’re offered umbrellas, beach cabanas and private cabanas all for pay. For what guests pay here they could and should make some of the minor upgrades I suggest. Still it wasn’t a bad experience, just set your expectations low and it’s a fine enough place to crash in Maui.

Very beautiful. The location is great. It’s not a big property so not that crowded. I feel real resort vibe. If you prefer peaceful vibe, this is the best for you. The beach right in front of the resort is so beautiful. Free shuttle is available to whalers village. Check in process was smooth, front desk Cody was so friendly and made us feel so welcomed. Definitely will stay here again!

My daughter and I visited Maui as part of a island trip and booked a cottage at this place. I had always heard this is the hotel to book. Nope. We were in a cottage straight out of the ‘70s. We were afraid to step down into the shower! I went to speak to the desk clerk who shrugged his shoulders and told me I could check back to see if anything came available the next day. Told me that’s the best they can do. Unbelievable. I even contacted the person in California who had confirmed my reservation in April. She said she was sorry I didn’t like it. Me, too. I gave it two stars because the valet and other staff were very helpful and friendly. Otherwise, I would give it a big zero.

We are so very sorry to read that you were unhappy with your cottage room. We would have been happy to move your room however as our front desk agent mentioned we did not have the room availability to do so. We want every guest to be happy and comfortable with their accommodations. We hope that you had a lovely time in Maui otherwise and should you return, we would be happy to advise you as to which rooms are fully renovated at this time.
