Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

To get the negatives out of the way first: 1.) The property is showing its age. Could use some updates, which management does seem to be implementing. Slowly but surely perhaps. 2.) No beach access due to 2016 storm/erosion damage. On the plus side, the Royal Kahana does offer a comfortable stay. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Quiet. For the price,...

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We are staying in 513 and love it This is a nice quiet building and good for those who desire this. The concierge is also very helpful. If one is looking for peace and quiet and simplicity this is great. I did not notice many small children here.

We appreciate your review and like to view our resort as being away from the crowds, but close enough that you can just get in your car and be in the middle of it all within 10 minutes. It's a nice escape, a place to quietly enjoy the sunset from your private lanai or down by our pool. We hope...

Our room was to the side facing the next door complex but we still had a small view over the sea where we could see whales blowing in the distance. The morning after we arrived we attended the free meet and great breakfast put on by the concierge - although designed to sell you tours it's still very informative about...

We arrived in Maui during a big rainstorm. We had heard that the beach was gone and things may not be perfect at the Royal Kahana. The complex is very clean, the pool area was enjoyable with plenty of chairs and nice bbqs. The condo was great and the owners were excellent to work with. We never had trouble finding...

My mother, auntie and I arrived in Maui on March 11th and departed March 18th, 2017. We loved the heated pool area, as well as the BBQ area. It was kept very clean. Our room was a little dated but was clean. We stayed in room# 406, could use a new mattress but the views were amazing. Since we went...

We were upgraded on arrival to a beautiful one bedroom condo. The views of the ocean and sunsets are amazing. The kitchen was great and having an in unit washer and dryer is nice. The beach is still a work in progress following a bad storm season but you still have access close by.

Wow! Ocean as far as you can see! Our travel agent put us in a 2 bed 2 1/2 bath condo. 2nd floor, right on the ocean. Due to recent weather, the beach had washed out but I am not a beach person. The room had a double Lenai and from it we watch whales every morning. The parking is...

Our family stayed for one week in this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath oceanfront condo (unit 210). Posted pictures accurately represent this unit. Both bedrooms are well-sized and the living/dining space is extremely spacious. The kitchen, while small, has all basic items needed for a short stay. The standout is the large balcony and ample outdoor dining/seating space. Yes, the furniture/décor...

We had some challenges with our room when we checked in, but they were taken care of. There is not any beach access at the place, due to recent storms. The one bedroom room with an ocean view was clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching whales.

Great condo in an ocean front location. Everything you need with spacious bathroom and ample kitchen. Balcony for relaxing - make sure you get an ocean view so you can watch the whales. Quieter location but within a 10 minute drive from the busier Lahaina Only downside is there's no beach access with this property as it has eroded away....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Make yourself at home in Kahana. This beachfront community is the calm cousin to West Maui's high-profile destinations of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort. You won't find the typical string of Maui hotels, dazzling storefronts, and streams of shoppers and diners - although that's only a few minutes away if the mood strikes. Breathe in the breeze that sweeps across the ocean view from your high-rise lanai. Marvel at humpback whales slapping and rolling so close to shore! ... more   less
