We stayed at the Royal Kahana for 2 wks while in Maui, in March 2010. We had a studio with an ocean view... and WHAT a view it was! We could watch whales from our lanai and also saw turtles on the beach. The beach in front of the condo was not great for swimming, but just a 2 minute... More

We just got back from another wonderful trip to Maui. This time we took our 18 year old daughter along. We stayed at the Royal Kahana 9 wonderful nights.

Aloha akangel40: Thank you for staying with us at the Outrigger Royal Kahana. Thank you also for posting this review here. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay; even from the first floor some units have ocean views and you can hear the waves from almost all the units, especially at night. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

We didn't check in until 9:30 p.m. (on a Saturday) after flying all day to get to Maui. We were given a choice of rooms on the second or the seventh floor; we opted for the one on the seventh floor because we really enjoy watching the whales from our lanai (we've stayed at the Outrigger Royal Kahana the past...

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Maui and we enjoyed it. I had done extensive research for our trip but because of the dates we could travel we could not get into the hotel that I had picked so at the last minute Westjet suggested the Royal Kahana.

My husband and I recently stayed here for 9 nights on our fabulous trip to Maui. We originally booked a Garden View room, but were delighted to find that they had upgraded our room when we went to check in. From our lanai, we had a gorgeous view of the ocean & Moloka'i. We had a studio room, and it... More

The rooms were dated but clean. Housekeeping in our room was excellent. The washer and dryer were extremely noisy. Front desk staff were rude. Felt like I was imposing on them if I asked any questions. The bathroom was really small and the door came within 2" of the toilet. The TV in our room (516) had horrible sound and... More
