I stayed here 10 years ago and came back for sentimental reasons for my 10 year anniversary While the hotel itself has not changed much it has definitely worked to upgrade it decor and rooms or at least some of them, with opportunity to add the cottages too! what I love about this hotel is it's location, the warm feel,...

My husband and I love west Maui but can't afford places like the Westin or Sheraton without points, so we tried the Royal Lahaina Resort and were pleasantly surprised. Almost every room in the tower has a great view (we were on the 4th floor and it would have been better to be up another 2+ floors) -- we could... More

I purchased a great deal through Costco, so if I was reviewing it based on that deal it would be a 4. The hotel itself is fine. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure on the top floor was good and the staff was friendly. I know this will sound corny, but I loved that they changed the mats in... More

I really liked this hotel. It stands in a compex of hotels but this one is right on the beach. Note that in Hawaii, beaches are all public property but this hotel is as close as it could get. It is in a quiet location, some other hotels are near a very manic tourist shopping mall called Whaler's Village. The... More

the rooms are nice, the lobby is plain but functional ( if you want the free Wi-Fi you pretty much have to be in the lobby, so they have lots of chairs and couches for people ) ... one restaurant is good ( over priced but so it is everywhere ) ....the beach is long and nice, but they have... More

Stayed one night through a package Orbitz deal - normally we do not stay in big resorts for the usual reasons. Check-in and out takes a long time, but they get you there in the end. When we got to our room I was pleasantly surprised by the size, decor and view (especially the view). We could see the ocean... More

First I want to let you know that my company chose this hotel. Second, I want to give it 3 stars, but, what I don't like about the hotel.....does not seem fair to knock the hotel...... Let me explain. If you like package vacations, this place is awesome! If you want to go on vacation and be entertained with golf,... More

Gave them an extra star for being super nice and clean. This is not the newest or fanciest place but they kept surprising us with good service and value. There are fancier resorts all along Kaanapali but this place has a nice charming aspect to it. We stayed in a one bedroom Ocean View Cottage. There are 4 of these... More

I guess you can't expect much for the cheapest price we could find. The bed was nice but the cottage was very outdated. Whoever did the paint and finish work should be fired. The bathroom looked 1972 original. The air condition was a $150 window unit. No microwave, and the mini fridge was in the bathroom. Super awkward. However the... More
