We stayed at the Royal Mauian #505 the end of June. Having never been to this condo, or the Kihei area, we weren't sure what to expect. We have stayed in the Lahaina and Kaanapali area in the past, but hadn't traveled over to Kihei. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our daughter and her best friend were celebrating their graduation, so we wanted everything to be perfect. We knew we didn't sign up for a 5-star resort, that was on purpose, we wanted our own private condo where we could just relax and unwind and enjoy the island. After doing a lot of research this looked like the place for us. Upon arrival we were happy to find shops and restaurants across the street, entering the condo we had a gorgeous water view from both the kitchen/living room as well as the master bedroom, and plenty of room for the four of us in this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo, and the multiple shower options in the master bathroom were a nice touch! Also available for our use were beach chairs, a cooler, snorkel gear (and other beach toys if you have younger kids). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. There were plenty of bath towels as well as beach towels, and having a washer/dryer in the unit was great! We enjoyed meals on the lanai, and were up early every morning having our coffee and reading and enjoying the ocean waves, we even snorkeled right out in front of the condo a few times. You can see a side view of the road from the lanai, but the traffic noise didn't really bother us as it was covered up by the sound of the waves. It also was a bit windy during the afternoons, but that didn't bother us at all, enjoyed opening the windows and letting the tropical breeze come through. We thought we'd enjoy the pool, but we didn't go to the pool once, we had two great beaches on either side of us. As for our island activities, we drove out past Kapalua to snorkel Honolua Bay, up to the top of Haleakala, out to Makena Beach, we were up and down the entire side the island, we also enjoyed a luau, ziplining and the Maui Magic snorkel cruise. Fabulous vacation had by all of us, we can't wait to get back!
