July-August 2014. The hotel and location is nice enough. But Yvette Kitagawa, Director of Rooms was horrible and very unapologetic for my situation. I planned this trip for my family of 14 people (6 kids) and 5 rooms, 10 months in advance. My travel agent requested the same floor, adjoining rooms, deluxe ocean view, with double beds and refrigerators. Once... More

We had our wedding at the Royal Lahaina in July. From the first day we started planning to the day of the wedding the entire staff of the Royal Lahaina was amazing. The wedding staff of Amy Johnston and Geraldine Quesada answered all emails and questions extremely quickly and always with very detailed and helpful answers. Jennifer Carvalho is the... More

Found the staff not overly friendly. We were made to wait until 3 pm on the dot to get our room. Did not explain anything about resort. No information in room on services etc. House cleaning were noisy early if you wanted to sleep in. No courtesy coach to Lahaina as the Westin have. $2 each way on a outlet... More

We were really disappointed when we had our first night in a beach cottage. It was only a bedroom and a bathroom! It looked like it had been modified to accommodate a wheelchair but was very worn and tired looking. The furnishing was soiled and the locks were weak and rickety ; the noisy old air-conditioning unit was leaking water... More

Just stayed here for 5 nights. Great spot on Kaanapali beach just north of Lahaina township. Beautiful gardens and you walk straight into the water on safe beach with little swell. 2 pools if you prefer. Staff were courteous & helpful. We had a rental car.... $10 per day to park right next to hotel....no need for valet parking. Had... More

This hotel was recommended to us from a friend. All in all it was a very nice hotel. Everyday, there was pineapple water in the lobby which was very refreshing. Pools were nice. We opted on renting a cabana as I can't sit in the sun for long. It was a nice luxury. $40 for a full day $20 for... More

We just returned from a stay in late July/early August and we had a great time! We are used to staying in a bed and breakfast but since our last visit we had a child and alas, the B&B doesn't do kids. Luckily, the Royal Lahaina does cater to kids. With three pools and a really wonderful beach that isn't... More

We stayed for a week in a ocean view room on the 11th floor. The room was clean and had a beautiful view from the balcony! Room service was fast and the price was not marked up as other hotels. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and steps from the beach. They clean and maintain the beach daily. The... More

Great place to escape screaming kids on the beach and other gathering areas, this place is unique on Kaanapali Beach for its high concentration of adult couples. Hotels on each side are more attractive for families with kids. Our tower room, 3022 (partial ocean view from the room balcony was lovely), was comfortable and well-appointed with wooden highlights and a... More

We stayed in an ocean view cottage and it was fantastic! We are a family of 5 and it's hard to find a room big enough for all of us. We had more than enough room with a private bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. We had the most amazing views of the ocean out of the front windows and... More
