Rooms: I had read on previour reviews that the nonupdated cottages were not that great. Of course, that is what our travel agent had booked for us. We did call ahead and requested an updated cottage. When we checked in, we were told they only had a king bed in an older room or 2 doubles in an updated cottage.... More

This was my first time to Maui so I did not know the lay of the land. If I had the info I have now I would NOT choose the Royal Lahaina ! It is hard to go to one of the most beautiful places on earth and have negative thoughts about your choice of hotel, but this was the... More

We stayed at RLR for a week for our daughters wedding Jan 11-18 Check in was very easy and smooth , whisked off to our renovated beach front cottage( still could smell the paint ). The room was very adequate and the bed super comfortable. We didn't eat a lot of meals at the hotel but the early morning breakfast... More

Can't beat the location, the staff is helpful and friendly, good food and the best Luau around. Located a few miles from Lahina, there is a free tram to the shopping and resteraunts area, and an inexpensive shuttle into town. The beach is beautiful, quiet and you can walk for a couple miles. Snorkeling around black rock is right out... More

The resort itself is beautiful BUT after paying $400 per night for a room with a view, we got NO VIEW :-( We tried to go on a balcony twice but noise from huge commercial air conditioning unit and ugly dish kept us out. ALSO, hotel had NO WIFI at all in our room for 3 days, which made my... More

I stayed here to celebrate my 30th birthday. Honestly, I was expecting way more from this hotel. While we were there, the main pool was being fixed, also they were doing some work in the building and it was impossible to take a nap. I usually don't complain about this things, but I called the help desk and they did... More

Stayed at the Royal Lahaina for a week during my first visit to Maui. The room offered an Ocean View which was pretty stunning with Molokai visible in the background. The bed was huge and the general quality of everything within the room was very good. The pool was a bit small, but there wasn't any real need to use... More

This older hotel shows a bit of age but there is really nothing wrong with it. It just doesn't stand out except in one regard: We needed a light, not expensive dinner the day we arrived and that' s not easy to find in Maui. But through restaurant here had something that fit the bill perfectly--curry. We split one and,... More

We stayed here for one night. We were pleasantly surprised to get an ocean front room. The view was breathtaking, and the beach pristine. The pool was nothing special, and the hotel restaurant was overpriced and not very good for dinner. The bed was very comfortable, but overall, the room was not comfortable. There was hardly any room to put... More

Stayed here with family in 2 cottage rooms and 1 cottage suite Christmas 2014. Amazing location - right on the beachfront. Had read that cottage rooms and suites were dated etc, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We were in beachfront rooms/suite, all in the same building, and felt like we were at home. Service excellent, nothing too much trouble... More
