This was our sixth stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort. We love the staff as well as the location on Kaanapali Beach. Upon check in we were upgraded to a top floor ocean view room. Seems as if most guests were on the upper floors. Good for RLR to give upgrades and keep us coming back! The room was very nice and had a great view of the beach and ocean. My husband, the "birthday boy", was thrilled with the view and immediately saw whales breaching. This was the purpose of his birthday trip. I should note that we were not told at check in that they would not be cleaning the room. This was fine but when we are at the beach we use a lot of towels and also needed our garbage removed. We just had to ask and it was taken care of but maybe make sure it is noted at check in. A few things to note. Royal Scoop (coffee/ice cream/sandwhich shop) is still not open and the Terrace and Beach Bar have a limited menu. Its a good choice but after 3 nights we grew a little tired of the choices. We visited for the day in Nov. and were hoping that there would be a little more choices as far as food by now. The burgers are very good and huge so easy to share. The resort is very clean and the new decor, (ceiling tiles, wall decor, room carpet and paint, and pool resurface) all look great. It would be nice if they offered a daily Kama'aina rate. Use of the facilities, parking and a towel for a small charge but returned as a credit if food/drink are ordered. Maybe this would help to be able to offer more food options or to open Scoops? We checked a few other resorts along the beach and no one offers this. There is ample parking and plenty of beach chairs and space available. Just a suggestion to help keep things running during this time.…
The Royal Lahaina met and exceeded all of our expectations! The service was outstanding, the location and views from the ocean view room were amazing, and the beach was beautiful. I highly recommend and hope to return again!
We initially used the Alaska air miles to book ocean facing rooms in Kaanapali Ocean Inn. During check in we were upgraded to the Royal Lahaina resort ocean view rooms. Oh man! What rooms they have. The rooms have awesome views of Kaanapali beach. The hotel has a very attractive luau which we enjoyed very much. The beach is walking distance and they provide the cabanas on rent. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful Definitely one of the best places we lived
Really appreciate all the Resort team workers do you keep welcome us and show us a great time, even through the over stick Covid lockdown rules put in place. It was a super wonderful stay. Get out and visit this Resort. Great getaway.
We had a fantastic experience at the Royal Lahaina. My wife and I visited for our 30th anniversary and could not have been more impressed with the facility, the cleanliness of our room, the friendly and helpful staff, and the shear beauty that is Maui. We are already planning our trip for next January and can't wait to go back.
