The Royal Hawaiian has a lot of great things about it - a perfect location, historical charm, fantastic beach accessibility, beautiful landscaping, luxurious accommodations, great service and excellent dining options. There are special touches throughout the resort - but my favorite was the fresh homemade banana bread and dragon eyes that were waiting in my room when I arrived. The...

If you are wanting something special with an old world feel, this is it. Being right on the beach doesn't help either. You just walk straight through reception onto the grass and then onto the sand. We stayed in the historic wing on the second floor and loved it!

The place is almost 100 yrs old....keep that in mind. Rooms are of the old design and bathrooms were small back then. The bathrooms have been updated but ize is still small. We loved the old, antique feel. More than once we commented, "If these walls could talk". The garden and beach are so close (mere steps away) and not...

This was a wonderful experience to stay three nights in the historic wing with great garden views. The rooms were quiet and peaceful.

The 'pink palace' is in itself a worthy experience; so don't even think of going for the new tower rooms. They are nice, in fact a carbon copy of the Westin Maui's new tower rooms, which are also very nice. But if you have a soul, you'll want to nourish it with the 100 year character of the original building....
