So so as far as maui hotel / condos go. Older and in need of updates. The main tower was under renovation while we were there. The villas are a nice change of pace but some are not as nice as others. See if you can chose which one you get. The Beach is nice, pools soso. But the tennis... More

This place is beautiful. We had a beach view which was spectacular. The staff were excellent. The food was great, both breakfast and dinner. It is the perfect place to go for a relaxing holiday. We were there 4 days and this is probably enough. We didn't hire a car, but that would have made the 4 days perfect to... More

We travel quite a bit each year, but this was our first trip to Maui and our stay at the Royal Lahaina was simply great. We originally booked a cottage but after we viewed it and listened to the noisy wall unit air conditioner we were given the option in staying in the main hotel (central air conditioner) without any...

Nearing the end of a fantastic 6 night stay. Location of the hotel is just great, on the beach and walking distance to the Whalers Village shops. Some really good value eating places again in walking distance, that's not to take anything away from the food at the resort. Nothing is too much for the staff, we think this resort... More

We stayed in one of the renovated cottages in early September. We had contacted the resort prior to our stay and they were happy to accommodate us in the renovated cottage. The room was nicely appointed with pleasant decor and really comfortable beds. The kitchen was basic but functional. The gardens were beautiful and we loved the cottage setting -... More

The hotel is being upgraded VERY nicely. The tower rooms are beautiful! Cottage rooms aren't upgraded but are very charming and clean. The location is right next to the beach (which is perfect!) and right along the beach walk path, which is great. Booking an event here was a breeze and the sales/convention staff rocks. Had our wedding here and... More

Everybody working at this place are very friendly and with a smile on their face. It's not as huge an unpersonal as the Las Vegas-like hotels south of Black Rock. The beach is calm and good for snorkeling. The beds are comfortable but loud. Nice and comfy rooms, but choose one with ocean view. 3 miles from charming and quite... More

Large comfortable bed, with a sea view. Airconditioning good. The room safe does display the access code when locking/unlocking (which is useful if you make a mistake). There was only 1 chair in the room. Shower had a fixed head, nicely hot in a dedicated shower cubicle rather than a bath tub but with a trickle rate of flow. The... More

The first time I visited the Royal Lahaina I was there working as a travel agent to view the property. This time we took all our family & friends to Maui so we could get married! The property grounds are amazing, the staff so accommodating in every aspect. My one recommendation is to make sure you stay in the Tower... More
