This hotel and the grounds are just breathtakingly gorgeous! My husband, and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon (4 days), the rooms were clean, I loved the carved wood doors, and decor in and around the resort, constantly mirroring history and beauty through every turn. The food needs to be more accommodating to food allergies, and...

This was our first stop of our honeymoon, which we stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is very nice and although one of the older hotels, still very nice. There is a lot of history about the hotel, which is nice. Arriving was nice as its set back in its own private area away from the Sheraton. The valet greeted...

The Royal Hawaiian was worth every dollar. It's located directly on the beach which was wonderful. As soon as we checked in we received a room upgrade so we got to wake up every morning to a beautiful view of the beach. The rooms are clean and spacious. The only con was the ants on our drink table in the...

First let me say that my husband earned this trip from his company - so we did not have to pay for our room. We went out a few days earlier and stayed at the Hilton Resort nearby. The Royal Hawaiin is a beautiful property. And we enjoyed our stay. However, there was nothing about the hotel or service that...

Stayed here last week for the final 6 nights of my honeymoon and loved it. We were upgraded and given a bottle of (pink!) sparkling champagne. The room (historic oceanview) was gorgeous (as the whole hotel is) but could do with some upgrades - perhaps a smaller closet to make room for a bigger bathroom. There was nowhere in the...

We stayed at the royal in April 2013, and as soon as we arrived (quite early I may add about 8am) the service was amazing, we were greeted like old friends, we asked to leave our bags until check in (2pm) to which we were told our room was ready and waiting for us.

We only had 4 days so wanted to stay where you didn't have to drive all over to see sites and that would be comfortable and relaxing. The Royal Hawaiian exceeded our expectations on all accounts.

MY beautiful bride and I enjoyed staying here for 5 nights during our honeymoon. After being in Maui for a week, we definitely realized that Waikiki was much faster paced than the slow lifestyle we had enjoyed earlier in our trip.

The pink grows on you. I would recommend the tower rooms versus the garden suites which lack a balcony or any outdoor space. The rocking chairs is a nice touch. Convenience to beach and water sport rentals make this a hassle free resort.
