This building is the beachy cottage compared to a normal hotel suite people may be used to staying at. Was very clean, had everything you would need and located right next to the...

My husband booked this place for our 2 & 1/2 week Honeymoon, he did plenty of research before booking and looked at plenty of places. We both read the reviews on this place, and in the end we decided to go with it because of the reviews about recent renovations and the location; the price was good too. When we...

Hard to beat this place for the price. You wake up and walk on to Kaanapali Beach. Visitors also have access to the pool and facilities of the Royal Lahaina Hotel. Our room had a nice view of the ocean and Molokai. We had a busy, action-packed four day/ four night stay in Maui and were sad to leave this...

I read a few reviews of this place beforehand and wasn't all that sure of what I would find, but this is the place to stay on the west side of the island and possibly on the entire island. It is a small two story building off to the side of the larger Royal Kona Resort. We had a beautiful...

I stayed there a couple of nights. Beautiful and spacious room, beautiful green garden, great onsite store and espresso bar. Amazing beach. It's close to other well known properties in Kaanapali and close to the town of Lahaina for great shops and food. I think it is great value and experience.

Cute little beach bungalow just off the beach. We originally stayed at the main hotel of Royal Lahaina 2 1/2 years ago for our honeymoon. And actually enjoyed the view from this room better. Here's a picture of the super moon 2016
