We really enjoyed our stay here at this resort! We ended up in an ocean front room up on the 8th floor and it was beautiful. The lanai was a good size and our glass doors went right over to the one side so it felt like you were on a cruise ship looking out into the ocean. The staff... More

The hotel rooms and view are great, but the restaurant is 3rd rate. The service is weak, they will try to add items to your bill, and the food is fast-food, at best. For being in such a beautiful location with tourists willing to pay the price, the hotel needs to get some better management and get the food service... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week in July 2014. The resort is well laid out, it faces Maui's most beautiful beach with great snorkelling (heaps of fish & turtles a short walk along the beach). The pools seem nice, although we preferred to swim in the ocean. We had a basic studio room but it was great... More

Our stay here was wonderful. The beachfront cottage was only steps away from the pools and the ocean. We had a patio outside of our room to enjoy the ocean sounds and sights on also. Our room was 8103 in Cabin A and I would recommend that room to anyone. We ate at the restaurant several times and the food... More

Awesome location, great beach but very expensive drinks and food. Got to resort hotel at 2:30 a.m. AB time -extremely tired and checked in only to find that the pre-requested crib was not in the room and room only had one bed instead of requested 2...an hour later we got to finally settle in to proper room. : (

Aloha Jacquie. Thank you for the review. Happy to read that you were pleased with our location and the beautiful stretch of Kaanapali Beach that we front. In terms of pricing, when compared to other resorts along Kaanapali Beach most guests find the pricing at our restaurant and bars to be moderately priced. Sorry about the delay with the crib,...

We have really been enjoying our stay here! Accommodations are everything we hoped for and more. We loved the cottage having space and a kitchen. Allowed us to do our own thing as well as prepare some freshly speared fish :)

This hotel is in its own category. It is sandwiched between resorts and timeshares. We have been coming here for 20 years. We love it because of its location and it feels like what Maui used to be. Unlike all the other resorts nearby, you are not part of a sea of people. You can grab a towel and a... More

Have stayed at RL several times. It's not as opulent or modern as many of the neighboring resorts, but it represents a great value in the 'pricy' Kaanapali beach area. RL has an 'old world' charm, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the grounds are well maintained and the white sand beach is fantastic and not too crowded. You... More

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

Aloha. Thank you very much for the positive review. I see that you are at the hotel currently so I will contact you directly regarding the mirror. There is a little design trick and easy fix, that it sounds as if you may not have discovered yet. The mirrors are actually on a hinge, rather than mounted to the wall,... More
