We had a cottage room and it was pretty nice. It's close to Lahaina town but far enough away to be relaxing. I think everything at the hotel is great. The only "complaint" I would have is that the parking lot spaces are way too close together. Other than that, the place is sweet.

I stayed at the Royal Lahania for a week and was pleased with my experience. The location on the west coast was very convenient. The room was large, clean and had a lovely view of the ocean, especially during sunset as the sun descends between Lanai and Molokai. The bathroom and mirror arranagement was odd because the toilet and shower... More

My daughter and I spent a week at swellwomen surf camp. The home of the camp is the Royal Lahaina Resort and participants have their accomodations at the resort. The tower is a wonderful place to stay. We shared a suite which was spacious with two balconies, two rooms and a large hall with the bathroom between the two rooms.... More

We visited this resort as part of our honeymoon tour. We were really excited to be in Maui as the first part of our trip involved a lot of travelling and staying in large cities. On our arrival as we were checking the receptionist told us that we were booked into one of the cottages. She described our room as... More

Everything was great about the Royal Lahaina - the location, the ambiance, the employees. The beach is literally 50 yards from the hotel, and It's the best beach we've ever been to (we live in SoCal so we've been to a lot of beaches). Since it was our honeymoon, they upgraded us to a partial-ocean view at no extra charge.... More

After reading some reviews of this hotel I was a little scared to book the cottages but found them to be a very pleasant surprise. They were clean and in good shape. We had absolutely no problems but sure enjoyed our stay. The walking paths around the property gave us great opportunity to be outside enjoying the beautiful grounds. The... More

My family and I were booked in the cottages. I was happy with the cottage because I did not have to wait for an elevator. Our room was large with a smaller room with closets and a bathroom. We had a coffee maker, fridge but no microwave. There was a safe but the hotel charged you for using it. There... More

The Royal Lahaina Resort is on the north end of Kaanapali Beach, just north of the Sheraton. I thought this part of Kaanapali Beach was the most beautiful and I highly recommend it. The hotel is low key and geared more towards groups, but my partner and I found it to be a great location, nicely decorated, comfortable rooms and... More

We first stayed at the Royal Lahaina in 2011 and had a great time. The room was clean, view was awesome, and location was great. We liked it so much that we stayed there again in April this year but didn't quite have as positive an experience. Our room had a funny smell, and the shower was dirty. We had... More

Stayed at the resort the end of May, 2012. We had a good time, the Lahaina area is full of great restaurants, great beaches, excellent road trips and is great location on the island. The resort was OK, the rooms were nice and beach can't be beat but the overall feeling was a bit impersonal. Everything cost money...I asked at... More
