Went to the Royal Lahaina on our honeymoon on 11/25. When we arrived I told the receptionist at the front desk that it was our honeymoon and requested an upgrade and we were immediately upgraded to an ocean front cottage for the entire week. We also got a free bottle of champagne with our room which was modern and very clean.
The beach access at this hotel is fantastic. There are very few people using the beach at any given time so it is almost like your own private beach. Also we rented some snorkel equipment from a place in Lahaina and walked a little ways up the beach to a small but pretty reef for snorkeling. Also within walking distance from the Royal Lahaina is Black Rock which is one of the world's foremost snorkeling spots.
The food at the resort restaurant was pretty good and not too expensive for Hawaiian standards. We bought a package which offered free breakfast buffet each morning which I would recommend because the buffet costs $12.50.
There is a daily parking fee at the resort and an extra fee for using the room safe, but this is well advertised by the resort if you do ANY research at all so this was not a surprise and I had no issues paying the fees.
I have stayed at some of the busier south Ka'anapali resorts (Whaler and Ali'i) and I much prefer the slower pace and smaller crowds of the Royal Lahaina Resort. If you like hustle and bustle and fancy hotels with many frills, stay somewhere else, but if you like to get away from most of the crowds on vacation and have a nice play to stay, go to the Royal Lahaina.
One more thing, make sure to splurge a little for a cottage....it's vacation for goodness sake. You won't regret it.
