I had reserved a 1 bedroom garden cottage for our trip to Maui to accomodate my husband and I, son and grandson - wanted a 1 bedroom with 2 baths - not too many hotels in Maui offer these types of accomodations - you can find one bedroom and one bath but not two baths. When we arrived at the...

Aloha! Mahalo for the positive review. For families desiring large rooms and cooking facilities our one and two bedroom cottage suites are a great option. We also have luxurious fully renovated Oceanfront One & Two Bedroom Suites (no kitchens) available in our Lahaina Kai Tower. Full descriptions of all of these these units can be found online. Mahalo.

We just spent 10 days at the Royal Lahaina Resort. The hotel is centrally located and by far has the BEST beach front of any resort on the island. There is a free "trolley" really cute (and clean) that takes you to Whalers Village or other hotels, etc. Super convenient and FREE!! The kids loved it! There is a boardwalk...

Thank you so much for the great review and all of the positive feedback and information. As you mention, our stretch of Kaanapali beachfront is spectacular and was recently named as the #1 beach in America in TripAdvisor's Travelers Choice Awards. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back (for more than 10 days) on your next visit!...

Me and my wife stayed here as part of our honeymoon, back in October last year. Everything about the hotel was perfect, the rooms, the staff, the food, the facilities and the beach. It was our stay here that really made our honeymoon very, very special. We had a hire car for our stay in Maui and I can't recommend...

The Royal Lahaina is in a fabulous spot on Kaanapali beach but is lacking in a few areas. The tower rooms were recently renovated and are clean and attractive. When we asked about a possibility of an upgrade we were given a coouple of options but our friends were given completely different prices. Very strange. If you need to stay...

Thank you for the feedback on your visit. Very similar to the review "Beautiful Location" from March 30th, so perhaps you were traveling together. Upgrade pricing is primarily based upon availability, but can vary for several reasons (ex. pricing will vary based upon what room type was originally booked by each guest, whereas a guest who reserved a Garden View...

This was my first visit to the Royal Lahaina and unfortunately, probably the last. The hotel is in a beautiful place, just north of Black Rock, the beach is beautiful and is in a great location in Ka'anapali. We stayed in an ocean view tower room and the view was fabulous. Besides that, the hotel, depsite recent renovations/improvements remains an...

Our travel agent booked us into the garden cottages. These rooms are a disgrace, old tired and dirty. They are well overdue a complete refurbishment. This combined with staff that seemed uninformed and disinterested lead to a far from satisfactory stay. The hotel setting is delightful but it would seem the operators have have failed to keep up with the...
