This independent resort is in a fabulous location on the beach, provided us great service and the rooms were nice and clean. This is not a premium up-scale resort but they know who they are and provide a great stay. We would come back in a heart beat. Our Ocean View west facing room had a balcony providing a gorgeous...

Aloha Charlie. Thank you for the positive review. As you indicate, we are not your typical big brand resort hotel. Set on the best and most exclusive location on Kaanapali Beach, we try to set ourselves apart by offering our guests traditional Hawaiian ambiance and a friendly Aloha Spirit. We hope you will return. Mahalo. More

We actually booked this hotel through Costco travel so i wasn't completely sure what to expect. It turned out to be a great hotel with very helpful staff. The hotel is right on the water so it is no trouble at all to get to the beach. A complimentary trolley can take you from your hotel to Whaler's Village and... More

Great resort to stay while in Maui. This place was amazing. Great service and the room was outstanding. Really nice bathroom and decent sized balcony viewing the ocean. Had a microwave, fridge, and small safe in room. Pools were great as well. Will definitely be going back to this place while in Maui.

Maui was found to be our favorite island for vacation. My wife and I found the Royal Lahaina a great place to stay. Having the perfect location, best beach we saw, and was treated with great respect and service by all of the hotel's staff. The hotel was full for the weekend, but we still felt like there was no...

We have visited Maui before but found The Royal Lahaina Resort to be the best place we have stayed in. We thought it was very reasonable, the location was wonderful, the view spectacular. We had an ocean view room which is on the side of the building. Our view was the cottages below, the mountain behind the hotel with the... More

Aloha Linda. Thank you for the positive review. Great to read that you have been to Maui previously and have now found our hotel and enjoyed it. With regard to parking, it is common practice within the Kaanapali Resort and on Maui for parking charges to be separated from the room charges. Many of the hotels in this area include... More

I don't know where to start! This was our first trip to Hawaii, and this place was everything we imagined while planning our trip. The staff was fantastic, we were not only directed to our room, but he (sorry I forgot your name!) showed us where everything was in the room and explained what was available at and around the...

My husband and I went here for a week as part of our honeymoon. We were there May 2014, and got an ocean facing room. It was beautiful, comfortable and large, and the balcony was quite nice. The bed was very comfortable (this is not always the case), perhaps a bit firmer then I'm used to but not nearly as... More

The Royal Lahaina Resort has a breath taking beachfront location. We had requested a King room with a partial ocean view but were told there were no more rooms available in this group when we arrived at 6pm. We were offered a full ocean front room for an additional $50 per night. The hotel does not guarantee requests for King... More
