I made this trip as a solo traveler who just needed some time to relax and lay about. For this type of trip I prefer a place where I can spend time in my room and have it be a home base if I need it to be. I tend to go to bed earlier and sleep later than when... More

We loved the Royal Lahaina! It provided absolutely everything we desired for our home base while exploring the island of Maui. I recommend it and would definitely stay here again! We had a partial ocean view room in the main tower, and it was in excellent condition with a beautiful view of the beach, ocean, and resort grounds. At night... More

We stayed here on our visit to Maui. It was part of a package deal that our travel agent put together for us. Was a nice place to stay and the room was good. The breakfast buffet was included in our deal, and it was very good. The only other time we ate at the restaurant was when we first... More

I would have have given a higher score to this resort if I was staying in a different portion of the hotel. The hotel was obviously undergoing renovations as it was easy to see that the other garden rooms were undergoing renovations. My room was on a late 80's early 90's timetable. Looked like I had a Walmart bought air... More

Very nice and clean hotel with beautiful grounds. Very close to downtown Lahaina any shopping. The beach is stunningly beautiful. Very friendly staff and great service. Parking is only $10 a day and they don't charge resort fees!!! Luau is highly recommended. I would stay there again. 10/10!

Aloha Rafal. Thank you for the positive review. Glad to read that you were very pleased with your experience. As you mention, unlike most of the resorts in the Kaanapali Beach area, the Royal Lahaina does not charge resort fees. We highly recommend that visitors check on these fees, which can run from $20 - $35 per day, when selecting... More

Superior room, nicely appointed, very clean, balcony facing the ocean and Molokai. We also faced the nightly luau, and at first we were concerned about the loud music, but it all... More

My wife and I have visited the Royal Lahaina Resort on several vacations.
