Great Spot

Had a wonderful time with lots of people to please. Great beach and lovely staff. Only thing I can criticize is that the hotel website says they have tennis courts and spa but they are not really part of the hotel and charge extra. But, we were in paradise and didn't care. Can't wait to go again! Great place!!!!!

Hospitality

The rooms were great and the food was great, but the hotel staff was a bit blah. I'm not asking to be treated like a King however they could go the extra mile. The vendors that sell Hawaiian idols in the hall way in the lobby could use some lessons in Hospitality. I purchased my Hawaiian idols and trinkets down town at the water front.

Anniversary Trip

I thought the location was perfect! Close to everything and easy to get around. Beautiful beach and we saw tons of whales right off our balcony. The room was great, very clean and comfortable. Would stay here again for sure. My only complaint would the restaurant, the food was good but the wait staff was incredibly slow. But lots of other places to eat very close by.

“Fantastic beach, good hotel”

Had a good stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort, Ka'anapali beach was stunning and right on our doorstep.. Great snorkelling and swimming and whales This stay was good and bad The good The room was nice, good size and we had a partial sea view, we were in the tower which seems to have been modernised, the tower is 90 degrees to the ocean and so most rooms can see some of the ocean from the balcony, however we never saw the sun as we were on the front side We saw whales from our balcony - fantastic And the bad No wi fi in our room, due to weak signal and in this day and age we shouldn't have to pay extra Almost every evening there was no parking near the hotel but we still have to pay $10 every night for the privilege of a long walk Checkout was very very slow due to all the tour parties who seemed to get preferential check out, due to the long wait we almost missed our flight Overall would recommend mainly for the location, it's very expensive for what you get, but I guess most hotels in this area are

Extra Night in Maui

The hotel didn't have the reservation I had made2.5 months ago. Had to spend an hour on hold with this organization for you guys to find it. In the end you did find it and gave me the name of the manager in case they didn't come through. In the end they found us, but it was very annoying and a waste of precious beach time. Hotel was very ordinary, but the beach itself is beautiful.

Very nice place to stay.

The tower building facing the ocean was awesome. Especially for whale watching. Room was a little small for three people with a roll away.

Great location & great service.

Enjoyed the staff. They were very helpful in helping find our way around the Maui. The food was terrific and we enjoyed the entertainment around the pools. The store next to the entrance was convenient for odds & ends as well as drinks for the room & snacks.
