Daughter's Wedding Trip

The best thing was the view, we had an Ocean view room. The bed was so hard we slept on the sofa our entire trip. The room is not air conditioned, it has a swamp cooler. We needed a fan and the room was still hot and humid. The ceiling in the shower/ tub was flaking off. If you are short, the bathroom sink will be a challenge for you. It was for me and I'm 5'3. There is no restaurant and the beach had heavy equipment on it due to erosion from weather. I will never stay there again. The maintanence man was very helpful and quick.

This is NOT a HOTEL

This is not a hotel it is a CONDO. There is NO Housekeeping, you have to wash your own towels and toilet. There are no places to eat at the hotel. There is no staff except one person a desk who says NO to all your questions. It is WAY FAR AWAY FROM EVERYTHING! We kept driving to find it and had to ask 3 times where it was, it was so far away from the main tourist areas. ALL the PHOTOS on the website are at least 30 years old. It does not look like this, maybe it did but now it is old and outdated. The beach is 15 feet long and you cannot take chairs on the beach it is prohibited. You can not park anywhere because everywhere is reserved. The parking areas are super small and inconvenient. The only good thing was the pool was heated that is it. It needs to be sold as a a condo not a hotel. I stayed at the Sheraton in Waikiki and that is a hotel this is like staying at a youth hostel. You will be very disappointed if you stay here and expect a Hotel experience. Wish I knew this before I bought it.

Excellent stay in a very convenient condo

I was on vacation on Maui with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed the Royal Kahana (we both are in early 30s). We traveled in February 2013 for 9 days and were in condo #903. If you plan on staying the whole time on the resort pool & beach, this may not be a good place for you though. But if you have a car and are planning exploring the island and its different beaches, like we did, this is definitely a really good base point. We didn't spend much of our day-time on the resort, there is plenty of nice beaches and things to do on Maui and everything is accessible on day trips from the hotel. Many nice beaches are only 5-10 minutes drive from the hotel. Upsides: - very convenient and fully equipped (all the amenities were available and the kitchen was very well equipped) - everything was clean and we had a mid-stay cleaning service (included in our package), which was quite sufficient for us, towels and sheets were changed then - we were welcome with a starter kit (coffee, soap for the washing machine, ...) which was nice after a long flight - bed was comfortable and everything was in perfect condition in the bathroom - staff was very helpful and nice - supermarkets and convenient stores are close (2 min walks for the general store) Downsides: - no beach on the resort, there is a pool and you can see the ocean (with whales and turtles), but you can't swim or lay on the beach there - hotel services were a little early for us (we're not early people...): cleaning service @ 9AM on 2 occasions, call from the tour-booking staff @ 8AM on our first morning, ... - we booked ocean view, but the view was actually more on the resort close-by. not a big deal, we could see the ocean and enjoyed the lanai, but we expected more a kind of wide-opened ocean view Our overall experience there was very positive and I would highly recommend this place. It's a very nice place to live/cook/sleep, but I wouldn't recommend it for people that want to spend 90% of their stay on the resort.

The Hula Grill, in Whalers Village, was very good. Expect a 1-hour wait if you go there for dinner, but food was very worth it.

great getaway

Hubby and wife vacay. Hotel staff was very nice. At the moment of check-in, we were automatically upgraded to an ocean front room at no extra charge! The view was awesome; whales, dolphins every morning and sea turtles in late afternoon. One aft there was about 15 of them. Hotel rooms themselves, do need a little updating; but in reality you are only there to shower, sleep and eat (sometimes). Did love the idea of having a fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer in the room. We made breakfast every morning and was able to pack alot lighter having the laundry in room. They do supply laundry soap for one load, but we brought our own soap and dryer sheets. Be sure to rent a car, drive the whole island. Do the tour of The Road to Hana, (with the Mecerdes Benz van, less people and more comfy) well worth the long 11-12 hr day.

It was great!

We stayed at royal kahana for 5 days, It was at great location. We had a oceanview room with wonderful view outside patio. Hotel is right on the beach, which was great. It is also closer to most of the places within few mins of drive. Kanapali beach is closest. We enjoyed every bit of it. We booked all are activities via hotel concierge. Rebekah was very helpful to sign up for all our activities.

Go to nearby beaches and save on parking. You can rent snorkel gears from stores nearby and do snorkeling right off the beach outside hotel.

Good place for family get away

Nice beach in front of the hotel. Great for a family stay but it's an okay place for honeymooners. Staff was very friendly. The whole time we stayed the towels weren't changed at all and we stayed for 5 nights and four days.

Hilo Hattie on 900 Front street is a great shop for a one stop shop for souvenirs if you don't have time. Reasonably price.

Affordable West Side Location

The hotel was clean and the staff was nice. We were mainly out and about during the day and only used the hotel as a place to sleep. Close to Maui Brewing Company and could easily walk to and from.
