My husband and I eloped to Maui but with a limited budget, Royal Lahaina was perfect for us. I read some of the reviews on this site that advised to only get a cottage as the rooms were not great. We stayed in the oceanfront cottage to the right of the 'royal suite' cottage, it was literally 10 feet from the beach!! I couldn't imagine anyone writing a bad review of this beautiful place until I went to get a replacement key for our cottage and an unhappy guest was at the front desk, waiting on the manager. She told me that the Hale wing was right next to where the luau is held every night and that it is impossible to hear anything but banging drums and people shouting. She and her family hadn't slept for two nights and was UPSET. A few nights later, we attended the luau and sure enough, the Hale wing is overlooking the dining area of the luau. And it was loud! I can't imagine having a room right next to this event! What poor planning! Luckily, our cottage was on the far end of the property, where it was VERY dark and VERY quiet. But we wouldn't have known any better if we hadn't done a bit of research. Do not stay in the Hale wing!!!
The grounds around the cottages are very well kept, the service is friendly, and the breakfast buffet every morning was outstanding!! Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh flowers left on the pillows. The bathroom was spacious with a big closet for luggage and a nice deep tub perfect for soaking. Probably our favorite part of the whole trip was being so close to the beach. The southern part of Kaanapali is packed compared to the north part. We actually got married on the beach about 50 feet from our cottage, at sunset and there was maybe 10 people on the entire beach besides us!!
If you like moonlight strolls, the Sheraton at Black Rock is within walking distance (you follow the golf course path) where there are a couple of really excellent restaurants. We never ate at the Royal Lahaina other than for breakfast.
Overall, we would definately stay here again and again, as it was close enough to other resorts to enjoy the 'touristy' stuff, but secluded enough to feel like you're truly in paradise.
