We loved this hotel, the service was amazing, our room and view was beautiful!! The maid was sweet and chatted with us daily as we would come back to our room. I felt as though the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Perfect beach location, we would watch the sunset and listen to the luau... More

For the price i am paying I except a top notch hotel and service, so I will only mention the items that I am not happy with. 1) The hotel is well over 25 years old and the internet may be dial up speed and spotty. 2) The jacuzzi is over 150 yards from the pool area and is smaller... More

Hosted a destination wedding for my daughter and her sweetheart at the Royal Lahaina Resort last week. It was the most amazing location - gorgeous beach, beautiful rooms, excellent service, onsite workout classes free to guests, great restaurants both in the resort, and more walking distance close - just a walk down the beach. Having a wedding here was stress... More

Our second time there and what great Hotel and location it is -- so much to do within walking distance. Area was not crowded and the restaurant was great along with the service. Beach was very clean and you can snorkel and see a lot of different types fish.

Close proximity to Whalers village and there is a free shuttle which is convenient. Good restaurant on-site. Two pools with one beach bar (pretty pricey). Good location for snorkelling, right on the other side of Black Rock! Rooms are okay, many have partial view of the ocean.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Needs renovating. I do believe they are slowly doing up rooms. Restaurant food was excellent. Was a fair walk to any other places to eat. Loved sitting at pool bar. Would recommend more for couples than families. My kids were bored.

My partner and I decided to get married in Maui (January 2013), since we are not legally able to in our home state of Texas. We are avid researchers when planning a trip because we want to make sure we pick the right hotel for us! And we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than the Royal Lahaina... More

I really liked it here, a lot more than Waikiki as it's more relaxed and natural setting. Beach is nice for swimming once you're past the shore break. We stayed in the ocean view tower which is a lot nicer than the cottages, but they have the ground floor terraces which are nice. Bar has decent happy hour and sport... More

What a perfect place to go if you want to walk through lush floral grounds,the beach is perfect,no crowd's to speak of. The food and beverages are great. Within a ten minute drive to Lahiana. We stayed in a small bungalow,a little older style,but very clean,quite,and private. We will be going again next year.

I stayed at this resort for two nights, only because as a travel agent I'm always on the go looking at the different hotel options. This hotel was spectacular in its own way. It's a nice size resort, but small enough you feel as if it's your own. What I really loved was the beach, it hardly had more then... More
