My husband and I are both originally from Hawaii (Oahu) and haven't been back to the Islands in over 20 years, never together, and never to Maui. This was our 20th wedding anniversary treat to ourselves. We booked through Costo based on photo's we saw and felt that this would be a beautiful place to stay. We upgraded to an... More

We had read some negative reviews about the Royal Kahana. Our experience was anything but the opposite. Our partial O/V room #304 was perfect. It was updated, (appliances, TV, and bath). The units are air conditioned, have daily maid service, and the management by Outrigger. There are many nearby restrauants and a markets. There are several high end restrauants ,... More

We were very pleased with our stay at the Royal Kahana. My husband & I had never been to Hawaii, and after travelling all over Maui the week we were there, we were so happy to be in Kahana at the Outrigger Royal Kahana. The property is just perfect for people who like to keep it simple. We enjoyed that... More

Booked on-line not knowing anything about the property or this part of Maui. Stayed in Room 1120 - absolutely great! Although the property is older our apartment was refurbished and had every amenity we needed. The pool area was well maintained as were all common areas. A short walk to a general store, Macdonalds, restaurants etc although I would recommend... More

We booked our arrangements through a travel agent and told her that we definitely wanted to spend the additional money for an oceanfront room. In her info, it offered a 1 bedroom oceanfront suite. So we booked that. Interesting that I see in another review someone had room 708 as an ocean view and we in 308 was called oceanfront???... More

We booked a Costco package for 2 adults and 2 children. When we arrived at the hotel, we were offered a terrible bedroom with 1 queen bed and one twin. Imagine a motel bedroom with a little kitchen against the wall that it shares with a stinky bathroom. But more importantly, how were we supposed to fit there? So we... More

8 months ago the Royal Kahana was highly recommended by a mutual friend. We looked into staying there. It's a great location and at that time considerably less expensive than where we usually stay - so we made reservations - 2 units / ocean front. At time of reservation we requested same condo recommended by the mutual friend plus to... More

Found this location and booked through Costco travel. It was perfect - right on the beach, beautiful and roomy 1 bedroom condo with all the amenities. Location was good for activities out of Lahaina or Maalea - not a huge beach but decent. Expedia desk in lobby was very helpful and saved us $ on activities. It also had free... More

This was our second trip to Maui and we specifically asked Kay Ryan, our travel agent at --, to reserve us a condo at the Royal Kahana. Kay suggested we reserve a one bedroom with an ocean view for the extra space and view of the ocean. We agreed, when we checked in were given room 708. What a pick,... More

I've read some of the other reviews criticizing the service and the property and I was prepared to disappointed. The facts are: 1. The property is aged, likely built in the '70s. 2. The staff was not overwhelming with smiles; they were not tripping over themselves to impress us. 3. The decor was not best I've seen. HOWEVER, I wasn't... More
