My family, extended family and friends were at Royal Lahaina Resort for my sons wedding to his beautiful Californian fiance during January 2016. What a wedding, on the grass overlooking the beach and water, Hawaiian celebrant, sunset, whales in the distance and chilled. Reception on the grass, dance floor and Maui sunset. It was perfect. The staff, wedding planer and... More

The hotel was warm and inviting and the staff was very friendly, mostly. the rooms were updated, fairly spacious, and comfortable. in fact the only issue we had was being snapped at by the restaurant manager for leaving crumbs near our table, because apparently the birds were an issue. to be fair, the birds were flying around the outdoor area....

Resort is very Hawaii. Extremely friendly staff. Every time you pass an employee you get greeted with an aloha. I did book an Ocean Front room. When I got to the room it was definitely a partial ocean view. I was giving an option for a different room with ocean view, but it had 2 beds instead of a king.... More

Location is great. Close to shopping areas and good restaurants. Nice and friendly staff. Very clean rooms. Being so close to the beach was fantastic. The restaurant is good too. Reasonable prices compared to most restaurants here. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the parking. I tried parking the car by myself and the... More

We absolutely loved this resort. It's not only very nice - at the same time it's very comfortable in every way. Everything you need is here! Food, drinks, shopping, ice cream parlor, pool, activities desks, beach is just steps away. A Beautiful view from our 8th floor "beach view" room. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's great for... More

We stayed 7 nights at the Royal Lahaina Resort in January. I made the reservations through United Vacations and had no trouble on our arrival. We were offered an oceanfront upgrade which we accepted. It is worth it to hear the waves and have the pool view. This hotel has a nice central location with a beautiful beach. I am... More

Wonderful resort with fantastic staff - everyone treated us like royalty. Breakfast buffet was awesome - so much to choose from. The grounds and beach area are kept immaculate - it was like staying in a garden! Our "partial ocean-view" room gave us beautiful views of the beach, Lanai, and Molokai to the west, and great views of mountains to... More

Rm 8156 in Bldg 4. Clean good room servicing. Close to the beach a bit of a walk especially from parking. Parking is difficult as spaces are always taken close to the main hotel. There are axillary places available. Wish they had at least a microwave to go with the refrig. No Tv guide. A value for Kannipali. Though for... More

There aren't enough good words to say about the Royal Lahaina! From the moment we arrived, we were treated so wonderfully. The hotel, as our travel agent told us, had a feel of "Old Hawaii" and nostalgia. Our cottage was recently renovated and so nice. The beach was right outside our cottage and just beautiful. The resort had everything we... More

We stayed 1/4-12/16. Our room was fantastic with spectacular views of both the mountains and the ocean. The grounds were maintained beautifully. Customer service was exemplary with smiling faces and everyone eager to please. While we did not particularly like the dinner menu in the restaurant, the room service menu certainly met our needs. The ice cream shop has wonderful... More
