This is a great place to stay as long as you do your homework and know what to expect. First off these are private owned condos, not a resort hotel. Each condo is different and depending on how much the owner has put into it they can range from very dated to extremely elegant. Also because of the location, the...

Aloha Shon D, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are glad you decided to return. I will pass your compliment on to Afu. You were very lucky to have been upgraded to an oceanfront unit and we are happy you enjoyed it. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Reviewed 23 March 2017

We arrived in Maui during a big rainstorm. We had heard that the beach was gone and things may not be perfect at the Royal Kahana. The complex is very clean, the pool area was enjoyable with plenty of chairs and nice bbqs. The condo was great and the owners were excellent to work with. We never had trouble finding...

Just got back from a six day stay at the Royal Kahana. Overall, I was pleased with our condo. However, the pool and fitness centre open TOO LATE in the day! The pool doesn't open until 9 AM and the fitness centre opens at 7 AM. If you have ever been to Hawaii before or have booked any excursions in...

Aloha Maddy, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to put your thought down. As with most vacation places, there is always a balance trying to make everyone happy. We have not had the exercise room open 24 hours because there is no one at the front desk until 7:00 am and it is a matter of...

Nice view. Accommodations were comfortable and clean. Pool and grill area were enjoyable, Main disappointment was no direct beach access due to erosion mainly because we were not aware of it when booking trip and found out on arrival. When we questioned , we were told it has been like this over a year and known (I viewed the web...

Aloha Gherbert, Thank you for the time to express your feeling about the property. We have had a direct beach access open behind the cabana for a few weeks. With Maui tides we can have 20 feet of beach one day and none the next. It is always tough to be totally up to date but we are trying. I...

We stayed in a two bedroom suit with our three children and really enjoyed our stay! No, this isn't a high end resort but if your somewhat self sufficient this is a comfortable stay. Having the washer/dryer and full kitchen was awesome. Pool area was smaller but clean and the complimentary bbq's were great for grilling.

This block of condos is very well maintained, there is some damage from recent storms but you can see where they are working hard to repair this. It is an older block but it is very clean, on an early morning walk you can see staff cleaning the pool and bbq's and the guys mentioned when they cooked a bbq...

Our second stay here. Price is really good and beach is beautiful. They keep grounds very clean. Beach is eroding but still really nice. Rooms need fresh paint and loving touch to update!! Bathroom needs some beach on tile but not too bad, everything you need!

We (family of 4 including 2 teens) recently stayed 5 nights at this property. 2 BR, 2.5 bath unit. For us, the extra space was worth the sacrifice of not staying in a more luxurious resort on Kaanapali Beach. Based on other TA reviews and reports, we knew there was no beach directly in front of the condo. There was...

NO Beach Access!! Limited parking with very narrow parking spaces! Noisy at night. Unfriendly staff. The place is really showing its age. The condo I stayed in needed better lighting, but the accommodations were updated and comfortable. The price was high considering the lack of beach access and parking issues.

Aloha H20adventure, Thank you for writing bout your stay. Maui and Hawaii is very limited in parking as you probably found. I always tell people to rent the small car when you go. We have enough parking spots for every unit to have one spot and try and stripe them to get the most room. I will forward this to...

We stayed in Unit 706. It is well furnished with upscale decorations. The view is outstanding. It had everything we wanted, somewhat expensive but this is Hawaii. We were close enough to dining and entertainment. The staff was helpful. We spent quite a few hours lounging around the nice pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Make yourself at home in Kahana. This beachfront community is the calm cousin to West Maui's high-profile destinations of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort. You won't find the typical string of Maui hotels, dazzling storefronts, and streams of shoppers and diners - although that's only a few minutes away if the mood strikes. Breathe in the breeze that sweeps across the ocean view from your high-rise lanai. Marvel at humpback whales slapping and rolling so close to shore! ... more   less

“If you get a room with a 9 or 10 in the number you face straight out to the ocean, the side away from the pool has most privacy.”

“Parking can be a struggle and the spaces are tiny. Ocean-view rooms do offer actual ocean views.”
