The Royal Lahaina Resort is a family-owned complex of traditional tower hotel rooms and plantation-style beach huts beneath swaying coconut palms. Thanks to the lush 27-acre property size, there's nothing to interfere with views of those mesmerizing ocean waves and neighboring island Molokai, as you snooze in a wicker chair by the sea. Golf enthusiasts have access to two 18-hole championship courses at the Kaanapali Golf Resort, while nature-lovers will be thrilled with many whale-watching opportunities. At night, guests can indulge in Hawaiian history by joining in with a traditional "Myths of Maui" luau, and let the sound of Polynesian drums, the dazzle of colored costumes, and the intense fire knife dance initiate them into island life.

Neighborhood
Located on the tip of the renowned Kaanapali Beach, up the coast from Maui resort Lahaina and less than five miles from Kapalua West Maui Airport (JHM), the Royal Lahaina is down-shore from the more rowdy boardwalk scene, but only a 15-minute stroll from the restaurants and shopping of Whaler’s Village. The hotel is also just north of Black Rock, a large lava formation which serves as a local landmark for cliff-diving and snorkeling fans.
Hints and tips
To book the most secluded getaway, choose the Royal Beach House, which provides exclusive beach access, plus a private pool and hot tub.

For active types, fantastic snorkeling is available in Table Reef, near the front of Kahekili Beach Park.

Policies and fees

The property is undergoing exterior painting project until 20 Dec 2015. Some disturbances are expected during this period.

Worth for just the Beach access

We stayed in the partial ocean view rooms in the 8th floor. The beach is wonderful. The view/sunset/walks were just awesome. the pools are good. Wifi was good. Service was just ok. The staff gave us a free photo for our anniversary. The rooms were always clean. Nothing to complain about. But a little over priced rooms considering we need to pay parking.

Do not recommend.

Other than the location, nothing really to speak about. Old cottages with outdated and unpleasant smelly cottages. Not worth to get ocean front cottages as the garden covers direct ocean views. Extremely overpriced. I had to call up front desk multiple times for bulbs not working, brown muddy water from the faucets, no hot water to name few.

Loved this property!

This was a great hotel at a great price. Hard to believe it was the cheapest hotel on that side of the island. The room we had in the tower had a great ocean view, was new and clean, and well decorated, and the staff were awesome. We particularly enjoyed having lunch at the restaurant by the pool, and the manager there was top notch. The view of breaching humpback whales didn't hurt either! I'd love to return on my next trip to Maui!

Great location right on Kaanapali beach

First time to Maui during whale watching season and it was a real treat. We could see whales right from our balcony. The hotel is located perfectly on a quiet section of Kaanapali beach. Great staff, great hotel and the best beach in Hawaii!

If you like resort vacationing, this may be the place for you. They have a fine restaurant, sandwich shop and room service. We were not disappointed with any of our selections. The staff was friendly and took great care of us. We would definitely go back.

Nice Hotel on the Westside of Maui

We found the hotel to be very nice and for Maui a good value. The luau at the hotel is very good and it was nice not having to drive after the open bar. The beach is great and snorkeling at Black rock is outstanding. There is ample parking. The only negative thing was that we were in room 1215 and there was construction being done outside our room (on the roof area) starting at 8:30 every morning. Besides the early wake-up, the room was great with a fantastic view. Just would have been nice if we had been told in advance.

Marginal

Not much to rave about here. Room was adequate but bed was terrible. No towels in room when we arrived. Restaurant food was not good and service was slow.Went elsewhere after one try. Lots of noise from maintenance plus Reno to other units. Only pluses were location and poolside entertainment and bar. Pool was horrible.Will not return or recommend

This hotel was a good buy. Hotel facilities were always clean.. Restaurant on site was decent for breakfast for dinner it was good. Wish it had more dining options but that's what u get when staying at a smaller hotel. Overall it was a great experience, would go back again without a doubt
