Stayed at this hotel and absolutely loved it. Great food and service at the restaurant (request Carolyn I believe that was her name or Jeff for breakfast!). The Expedia activity desk with heather behind it was very helpful not once did I feel pressured to book something other than what I was looking for. The little cafe in the mornings... More

The staff was very friendly. Please, please, please try the breakfast buffet!!!! You will not be disappointed. The Eggs Benedict were heavenly and there were so many different choices of food. Skip the breakfast menu, because the buffet is exceptional. You'll also enjoy the lovely ocean view and see the other islands, Molokai and Lanai while eating. I can also... More

We loved our stay at the Royal Lahaina!!! The rooms are spacious and clean! The pools were awesome, and the beaches are second to none. There were places where you felt like you could get away and other places where large groups could gather. The cabanas were nice

I never write negative reviews, I contacted the hotel to give them a chance to rectify whilst we were there but no good, hence the negative review. Despite numerous complaints on here about the awful bungalows, RLR thought it fine to place a honeymoon couple in there. We travelled around 7000miles from the UK to be placed in a worn... More

We Loved the location of the hotel on the sunny side of Maui but the color 0f the pool lining put me off. It was Dark instead of sky blue so the water did not appear to be clean. It certainly was though once you got in it. We took a tumble in the ocean right off the sand beach... More

Absolutely LOVED this place! We had a room on the top floor on the left hand side which had amazing panoramic views of the ocean and the island! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the food at the restaurant was amazing and the service was incredible. The pool and the grounds of the hotel were beautiful and right on... More

What can I say, The Royal Lahaina thought of everything, but it was Amy in the romance center who was MY everything. She handled everything with ease. What a joy to work with. I can't rave enough about how attentive she was to every detail. Her email responses were always very timely. The resort accommodated most of my 70 guest... More

We spend a week on this very lovely resort. Everything was perfect. Nice and clean rooms (and not small), breakfast with everything you need, service in top and very polite personal. We will absolutely come back👍 .... and the beach was nice to.

We stayed at the Royal Lahaina for our honeymoon and it was perfect! Right on Kaanapali beach which is the best beach in Maui - just walk right out and take a swim or enjoy the sunset. You can rent chairs/cabanas but we never needed them. Free towels, just grab a couple and lie out on the beach. Hotel staff... More

The hotel is Beautiful, the beds are WONDERFUL, personnel is extremely helpful and friendly. You must try the pineapple infused ice cold water in the lobby. Their concierge is extremely helpful and they offer great tours. Their luau is very good and you can enjoy the beautiful Maui sunset from their terrace or pool. Bring your camera.
