We stayed here during our honeymoon, though, so it was a pretty memorable vacation. The pros--the view from our "partial view" room couldn't have been nicer. We saw both the mountains and the water. We also loved that the hotel is towards the end of the line of hotels. It is therefore a little more secluded, and you have fewer... More

I did a tour of the Hawaiin Islands in October and this was by far my favourite hotel of the tour. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable with a side sea view of the beautiful Kaanapali Beach which was an added bonus. The only issue is having to queue for breakfast which I think is very unnecessary but other... More

Great hotel for pure quiet and relaxation as it is away from main resort by about 10 minutes! One restaurant on site with good food and nice entertainment - if staying in Maui recommends hiring a car and driving the road to Hana - amazing!

I purchased a package on Groupon for The Royal Lahaina's other property, Kaanapali Ocean Inn (detached from the main resort) and it was AWFUL! When I complained to the front desk a manager came out to inspect the room and was more than happy to upgrade us to the tower the following night. We were moved to a more livable... More

We initially stayed in an ocean view room, it was a little small but had a decent view. We then upgraded to a corner suite on the 10th floor. This was the most amazing view we have ever seen. You are able to look to the left and see black rock and Lanai then turn to the right and see... More

We liked this hotel as it is so peaceful and set well back from the main road. Our room had a comfy bed and modern fittings whilst the bar looks out onto open seas and knocks up some of the best frozen piña coladas we have ever tasted!

The grounds are beautiful, the tower rooms are nicely updated, and the view from our balcony was amazing. We were greeted well by the staff at the front gate and in front of the hotel. The reason for the 3 stars is for the front desk staff and the fumigation experience. There was no acknowledgement that we were on our... More
