The Mai Tai Bar has Great Mai Tai's and Pina Coladas! We've had both at a number of restaurants and bars throughout Hawaii and I must say these were the best! Wishing I could have one now!

As part of our expedition to find the best Mai tai in Hawaii we stopped here for the drinks and pu pus. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat with incredible views of the beach as well as Diamonhead. The service was good. There were three different Mai tais. The Classic was very good as was the Maui and the royal.... More

Enjoyed a daily mai tai at this bar while staying at the RH last week. They cannot be beat and do not skimp on the alcohol. I can see why they won awards for their mai tais in the past......

We spent a week at the fabulous six star Royal Hawaiian Hotel where we enjoyed restful days at the pool reading and just plain relaxing. The Mai Tai Grill serves poolside and we were very fortunate to have Byron as our waiter for 6 of the 7 days. He is what all young people should emulate. Not only was he... More

Spectacular location and tasty cocktails. Sip a Mai Tai while admiring the ocean and Diamond Head. A must visit place in Honolulu.

The views are unbeatable of Diamond Head! The staff is really friendly, the drinks are expensive but this is a luxury hotel - and drinks are expensive almost everywhere in Waikiki!

Had the best evening here, the cocktails were outstanding, and the food although it took a little while to arrive was worth every bite! The Mai Tai is right on the beach in the Royal Hawaiian hotel in Waikiki, so was more pricey than some other places we ate and drank but really with such a great setting we were... More

The Royal Hawaiian is a grand old building that is beautifully maintained and right on the beach. The Mai Tai bar is next to the beach as well. We were hoping that it would be inside the old colonial style building giving it that E&O or Raffles kind of feel if you know what I mean. The drinks aren't cheap... More

The most expensive and largest hot dog ever, but it was worth every bite...absolutely delicious!!! It came with melted cheese, Maui onions, and sweet potato fries. On top of all that, Byron Chong has been superb in taking care of us at the Royal Hawaiian pool in the past 3 days :)

Went for a pre dinner drink to enjoy the setting sun and the views of Diamond Head. Busy! But live music, and a really good (not crazy sweet) Mai Tai (being not so much a sugary drinks fan). Forget the wine list from the bar itself (if you are up for wine ask for the wine list from the Royal... More
