    Good price. Best Brunch I have ever had with an amazing spread of food and great price! Overall experience was very good. Room was very nice except for the tiny bathroom, small bath towels, and some old decor in need of maintenance. Swimming pool was dirty. View from ocean view room was good and just as advertised. Service and hotel staff were very good. Their response to the covid-19 situation was great and very transparent.

    This was a memorial trip 4 years in planning and even with the coronavirus scare we weren’t canceling. We had a promise to keep to visit where we spread my sisters ashes. Due to early flight arrival and time zone differences we requested early check in if it was available so we could nap. Thankfully they could accommodate and placed us in a lovely cottage overlooking the golf course. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious as was the last time we visited. Our cottage was spotless. At night while resting on the patio, frogs came to visit which would scare most but I found it quiet humorous as I’ve never seen them so big. This explained why I saw so few insects in the area. A few days after arrival, the restaurant started practicing social distancing however the staff never failed to disappoint. All remained friendly and professional during these trying times. We chose to check out a day early as all our planned events had been canceled and early check out was made simple. We had an amazing time despite the crisis and will return in the future.

    Aloha spirit alive at Royal Lahaina

    My wife and I have been coming to Maui for 40+ years. We have stayed at most all of the Kaanapali Beach resorts throughout the years. For the last 10 years, the Royal Lahaina has become our home in Maui. Throughout the years, the Hawaii spirit has disappeared from most big box hotels here, but not the RL. FREE live Hawaiian music, torch lighting ceremony and hula dancing every night! The staff makes you feel like Ohana (family) even when just passing from place to place. And the best kept secret is the amazing, wide and long stretch of beach that fronts this property. Unlike the places on the south side of the black rock, beachgoers are not piled on top of each other and you can stroll the beach without feeling like you need to dodge others along the way. If you just want a beach, go to Florida. If you want to go to a beach with real Hawaiian vibes, go to the Royal Lahaina.

    We originally booked a patial ocean view and ended up looking at the roof of another building, so we paid to upgrade to the true ocean view and it was stunning. I didn't realize the price to upgrade until we got the final bill. We saw lots of whales due to timeframe and enjoyed the resort. We ate our meals on the patio/bar area and enjoyed it. We took an Uber into downtown Lahaina since the complimentary shuttle didn't go that far. I would give it a 5 star if it wasn't sooo expensive.

    I would have given a 5 star recommendation, however cottages that we stayed in were a little dated. We absolutely loved this property because of the great beach access and closeness to both Lahaina and Kapalua. This was our very first trip to Maui, and we will definitely stay here again.
