“Noise, noise, noise!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Stayed on 1st floor (108).
The noise was so much and varied that it was almost comical!
It certainly drove us out of the condo every day.

At 7am the loud garbage truck would awaken us every morning.
Shortly after the construction noises would start; tile saws whining to make you hair stand on end, then then our favorite nail gun sounds.
Throughout the day there were landscapers mowing and weed-whacking working out back, and leaf blowing out front.

Condo itself and location was fine (apart from the ants).

If you want a relaxing vacation, don't bother with this place. Glad to head home for some peace and quiet!

Room Tip: Avoid first floor and center of building.

I chose this place because relatives had stayed here before and I knew the unit would be clean and I love the beach here. However, I did not know how loud it would be. Every morning a garbage truck comes, there's constant noise from landscapers, plus street noise as well. I haven't been able to sleep past 6:00 once! Next time in Maui I will definitely be staying someplace else.

Stayed here June '13. The best part of the unit is the view - perfect ending to busy Maui days takes place on your lanai, watching the sun set over the ocean. Spectacular.

Condo is in nice location, placed between Kam I and II and convenient to many nice restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Complex has nice oceanfront lawn, nice small oceanfront pool, and cool rooftop deck for grilling and sunsets with fellow guests.

Unit 506 is nice, with two AC units that keep master bedroom and living area cool, although second bedroom doesn't get much air from these units. Some wear and tear is showing in unit (slat on blinds in master bedroom broken, stains on carpets, molding to lanai carpet hanging off balcony edge), but these are fairly easily overlooked. Unit is also home to "Maui ants," but this is apparently a problem everywhere on the island. They're hardly visible, but if you leave crumbs on the counter you'll see them for sure.

Overall we had a teriffic stay, and would return in a heartbeat. Not perfect like staying in a high-end resort - more like staying in a friend's beach house that has been in the family for years and is well lived in...

Room Tip: Do your homework, as unit's are individually owned and vary significantly from each other!!

We stayed for 14 days and will definitely rent this unit again. Everything has been upgraded and you couldn't ask for any more. The unit is immaculate and everything you will need is provided. This is certainly a quiet type building so if you plan on partying do not stay here as you will not be welcome. We enjoyed the quiet environment as you get up early to enjoy the ocean before the trade winds pick up around noon. The unit is equipped with AC which is nice because not all units have it. For those writing negative reviews about other units or the front desk staff... You are renting a privately owned property in most cases. This is not a hotel so expect to possibly buy some of your own toilet paper or garbage bags. I'm not sure why anyone would need to talk with the front desk staff anyway, we never once spoke with them as we were simply having a great time for two weeks. I think we paid around 275 per night for this unit. You might be able to find a less expensive unit but be prepared to lower your expectations as well. I would recommend this unit to everyone!

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!

This is our second year in unit 209 at the Royal Mauian thru VBRO. The one bedroom suite is exactly as shown in the pictures. Master bedroom with window to the ocean is a fabulous site to wake up to in the morning. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need - fridge (ice maker), stove, microwave, dishwasher - you can cook every meal in if you so wish. You can also BBQ up on the rooftop for some fantastic sunset views at supper. The lanai is a great place to unwind for the day or breakfast in the morning. You have in suite laundry so you can travel light on clothes. The common area is meticulously cared for and the management staff very helpful.

The location is between Kamaole Beach 2 and 3 - you are steps away from the beach and the lava outcrop in front of the hotel is an excellent place to snorkel in the mornings - many sea turtles!

We will definitely be back.

I stayed here with my family for 11 days in February. Its right on the ocean, 1 minute walk to the beach. We had a ground floor unit so it was easy walk in, walk out. Like every where else in Maui you probably want a car if you're going to go out and do/see things. It definitely could have had more towels and we weren't given enough toilet paper or garbage bags to make it through the 10 days, other than that it was a good experience and we would stay here again.
