stayed in the cottage of Royal Lahaina..i thought it'd be cool because it's something different from regular hotel rooms. And by the website it looked pretty neat! and it's just a few steps away from the beach. Thinking that each cottage is to ourselves..we were wrong..each cottage has 4 separate rooms. I kinda feel like i'm living in an apartment.... More

Nearly all of our cottages are two story structures in which there are four individual guestrooms (set up like a regular hotel room) on the ground level, each with large ground level patios,...

We stayed four nights at the end of June in a deluxe ocean view room. RLR was exactly what I was hoping it would be -- a beautiful, comfortable room with a breathtaking view of the beach and ocean. I had stayed here 16 years ago, and the public areas were pretty much what I remember: it looks like old-school... More

We stayed in a lovely tower room with an ocean view for 5 nights on a family vacation and had a wonderful experience. The room was comfortable and clean with fantastic ocean views with great access to the lovely pool area, great bar, and an awesome beach. I liked the little touches, like the fresh pineapple scented ice water in... More

Thank you for the positive feedback! One note regarding the high-speed internet service - all guestrooms in our Lahaina Kai Tower also have a hard-wire connection on the desk lamp for high speed internet service should there be any difficulty with the wi-fi reception. Mahalo. More

Everything was perfect about this resort to me and my boyfriend. Location was beautiful and perfect for snorkeling. Grounds were well-kept. Accomodations were great. Onsite restaurant was well-priced and the food was great (I had the ahi-club), and the live entertainment was enjoyable and made it a memorable experience. The Luau here was great and very entertaining! The ony drawback... More

The Pool areas were ok - could look better (needs modernising). Some palm trees, swim up bar, umbrellas. Staff were fantastic and friendly. Its about 15min... More

We spent 4 days on the Maui. For starters, the Kahului airport is busy. Plan on 1.5 hrs to get through security and ticketing, unlike the usual 1 hr at most US airports. We stayed at the Royal Lahaina Resort. It was a very nice hotel that is located right beside the beach. We rented a 12 passenger van (6... More
