From the moment we arrived we were greeted by rude staff. They gave us a key to a room that would not open. We went back to front desk 4 times, each of which they wanted us to wait in a long line of other dissatisfied people. When we went to the front of the line the fourth time, we... More

It's only our first day on the property, but we are in love with this place. Just perfect, friendly staff, amazing service and exquisite facility. Complimentary trolley service, and very affordable shuttle service to nearby towns. Everything you need is on site. One "constructive comment" regarding the room, the mirror set up in the bathroom facility is a bit awkward.... More

My wonderful experience at the Royal Lahaina started the moment we walked into the lobby. My husband and I had a long flight from Dallas and were just looking to get into our room and sleep. Stephanie at the front desk hooked us up with an amazing upgraded room that was one of the best rooms I've ever stayed in.... More

Connection to Internet was very difficult in rooms,guest were in the lobby trying to get onto Internet in all 7 day stay. Parking cost $10.00 a day or $15.00 for valet parking. It was very hard to get parking, and when we did it was far away with no lights for safety for guest walking back. Breakfast was average, rooms... More

We stayed at the Royal Lahaina for our 30th anniversary. Our room was very nice and clean. We were upgraded to a partial ocean view which gave us a beautiful view. The beach was beautiful, but currents were strong. Also liked being able to walk to shops and restaurants nearby. The ice cream shop on the property was great for... More

What we loved most about this resort was it was not too crowded and the beachfront location was amazing. Snorkeling was great to the north and south and the water crystal clear. The hotel provided good service and the beds were very comfy. Others in our group had to change rooms as they were initially put in a cottage under... More

We had booked this vacation through United Vacations. It was my husband, myself and 14 year old daughter. Had requested a room with two queen beds and upon arrival was told we had one king bed. How they expected three of us to sleep in one bed I am not sure. They apparently cannot guarantee bed requests. They could however... More

The Royal Lahania was remodeled within the past 5 years. It is a wonderful place to stay. You have everything you want. Good food and wonderful accommodations. It is nestled next to a golf course and is at the end of a road which makes it very quiet and quaint. You have a large variety of different rooms. The view... More

Just returned from Maui. We booked our last 2 nights for the Royal Lahaina. Asked to upgrade to an ocean view, but that was going to cost an additional $100 per night, so we passed on it. We were on the 4th floor with a lovely (snicker) view of the lobby's rooftop. The balcony was very small; hardly enough room... More

We picked this hotel almost as a last minute resource because we waited till the last minute to make our bookings.. it turned out the price was reasonable, the hotel is conveniently located on the beach: beautiful blue, crystal waters.. a little deep though so make sure you can swim and if you have kids do not leave them unatended...
