Stayed here 5 years ago and really liked it so decided to return on our holiday this year, was given a unrenovated cottage room, in which I stayed approximately 5 mins in before going back to the reception to ask to be moved, room was dated and bathroom was dirty. The girl at reception was very helpful and moved us... More

This resort is in a great position with a really lovely beachfront, great sunsets, it has a very relaxed atmosphere and about a 20 min walk to Whaler's village. There are buses to take you into the town of Lahaina - which is worth a visit. Wonderful, friendly staff who go out of their way to help. We had booked... More

We had such a wonderful visit to Maui staying here at this family owned hotel. The beach were NOT crowded, as the chain hotels were and the staff were welcoming. I'd come back here in a minute! Be sure to ask for full ocean views!!!

We spent our 20th wedding anniversary at the Royal Lahaina and had a blast! The staff was incredible. Ike, Makana, Jordan and all the staff (especially IKE) made our stay so memorable! The view from our room was spectacular!! Everything was fantastic. We enjoyed everything about our stay; the beach, the valet parking, the pools, & the grounds. We would... More

Facilities at this hotel are good, the staff are excellent polite and they make you feel like you are the only guest. We had a cottage in the grounds with views of the pools/beach and the golf course, the hotel looked good as well. Bar/food was ok not a good selection, the ambiance when eating is amazing the waves breaking... More

This is such a charming and guest friendly hotel in Maui. The atmosphere is very "hang loose" and "aloha" all at once. The location is marveless, right next to the beach with the perfect view of the sunset. We had a cottage garden room close to the beach with out own pattio with chairs, table and a sunbed. The room... More

We were here for the full 8 days of our honeymoon and were pleased all around. The staff were all so friendly, they really made us feel at home. Room was clean and well maintained each day. Bar/restaurant was a little pricey as I expected at a resort. But the food was good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone... More

This is my second time staying there during Maui marathon. First of all, I love this hotel. Clean,quiet, reasonable price, friendly staff,close beach and so on. Of course, there are pros and cons. For instance, the location is slightly far from the Whalers village, a shopping mall. The restaurant is OK and its sunset view is excellent, but I recommend... More

It was a huge disappointment to find out that you cannot book the Luau here through OpenTable (even though we were directed to click on it through The Royal Lahiana's website).

I've been to this hotel numerous times and unfortunately I felt my visit this month wasn't as pleasant as prior visits. I even went so far as to ask the front desk personnel if it had changed ownership (they said it hadn't. . not sure they were being honest). The pool was closed for 3 days of our stay (the... More
