Booked a garden cottage for our first Maui/Hawaiian trip ever. The location is beautiful and paradise-like. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Access to the beach is only a few feet away. They rent out chairs and umbrellas to lay out on the beach which made our experience that much nicer. The beach was never crowded. Great for relaxing... More

Arriving at royal lah I was presently surprised with a warm welcome and some pineapple ice cold water. The hotel lobby is open and specious. I asked what side can we see the sunset at and was given a room to accommodate that. However, we were unable to see the sunset from our room. Not a problem as we saw... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Lahaina from April 9-16th as this was the host hotel for a tennis tournament we were participating in and many in our group elected to stay here for convenience. The hotel is certainly older but it has been updated. We stayed in a 9th floor tower room with a nice view of... More

We stayed during our honeymoon in maui at the royal lahaina for 6 nights. Rooms are big, clean, comfortable. Excellent. Location is superb, as well as the restaurant on the beach front. Take note that the reception is not at all what you expect and needs some refurbishing. Would definitely come back to maui and the royal lahaina.

Aloha Funes. Thank you for having selected the Royal Lahaina for your honeymoon on Maui, all the way from the Czech Republic! Glad to read that you had a perfect experience. I am also happy to advise that we have recently refurbished our lobby/reception area in a new "Beach Boutique" theme that is contemporary, inviting and comfortable. Mahalo. More

Despite the construction and utter lack of parking with very tight parking stalls, the resort itself is beautiful. We got one of the cabins and at first glance we looked at each other and said, "Wow, this is really nice!" Upon closer inspection, it looked like construction was a little rushed. The switch plate cover in the bathroom was missing... More

Aloha. Thank you very much for the 5-Star rating and positive review. As you mention, the Royal Lahaina is renowned for its traditional Hawaiian ambiance, friendly aloha-spirited service and for being positioned on the best and most exclusive stretch of beautiful Kaanapali Beach. We are definitely not a big box brand type hotel and believe that the uniquely Hawaiian experience... More

We've stayed at the Royal Lahaina several times over the years and it remains one of our favorites. We stay in the tower, in rooms facing south, which overlook the golf course and the beach, this is the prettiest view other than the ocean front rooms. They also have cabana type rooms that we find old and run down. They... More
