Our family of 6 just returned from 5 days at the RLR. It was a fantastic experience. The location is superb, right on the beach. We could see a sea turtle from our balcony and the kids ran down to the beach and caught up with it in the water! Our room was beautiful and spacious. We loved the authentic... More

We stayed at this hotel last week. It is old, has been updated but it is still old. There were not enough chairs at the 2 small pools. Trying to get a towel took forever and the lady there was too busy trying to sell lotion to hand out towels. There were no chairs on the beach not even to... More

Very clean friendly staff overall would recommend it to anyone. Great beach views. Weird that no one else seemed to want to swim at the beach so me and my friend practically had it to ourselves. Great stuff to do around in Lahaina and the luau attached to the resort. We had a great time.

We loved the location, right on Kaanapali Beach, not far from Lahaina, Whalers Village and Napali Coast. Pretty disappointed we only got a king room when we specially asked for 2 double beds well in advance. Would not have stayed here otherwise. The room was extremely cramped to fit 3 people and roll out bed was very uncomfortable. We weren't... More

Oahu We just returned from a weekend at the RLR. Just perfect! The staff is just the best. Everyone truly showed so much Aloha! Makana at the front desk was just so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so very much that we decided not to leave the resort and had the breakfast buffet. We were a little disappointed.... More

We just returned home from a stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort for spring break. You never know what you are going to get when you book online and I have to say I was very happy with our choice. We originally booked a package that was a cottage room, but we were upgraded to the tower upon arrival....I was... More

We have never been to Maui before and reserved here as part of a airline package. It turned out to be a very good choice! The rooms were clean and bright and roomy. We had booked a partial ocean view and got exactly that - a beautiful view of the mountain, the golf course and the ocean. The beach outside... More

We had such a wonderful stay at this hotel. It's hard to know from reviews what to expect from a hotel but it exceeded our expectations.

What a wonderful time we had at the Royal Lahaina. Memorable. The front desk people were very nice and helpful. While swimming in the ocean I stepped on a sea urchin, the hotel security personal came to our room and very gently removed the painful spines from my foot.

It is so beautiful here. We booked thru Orbitz and had a cottage. The room is average at best. Some mold in the shower. We are on the ground floor, with a unit above us. We can hear people very easily. The shower has great water pressure. The location is nice too. The drinks at the bar are the worst.... More
