My two kids husband and myself had an amazing night in one of the bungalows. The staff was super nice. We also rented two kayaks and the staff was very helpful. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
This was my very first time staying at the Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui and by far the most memorable vacation that I will never forget! I was immediately welcomed when I arrived in their beautiful lobby by their friendly staff who made me feel at home. The resort is just steps away from the beach where you can watch humpback whales and go for a swim. The resort offers activities the traditional Hiu Wai which is a Hawaiian Cleansing Ceremony at sunrise. This is a must-do! My room was very clean and the balcony views of the ocean were breathtaking. The thing that I most appreciated about this resort was that it made us feel like family! Every employee on property greeted us with a smile and warm hello or farewell. I highly recommend this amazing property. Will definitely be back.…
We were multi generational family traveling so had 3 rooms. 1 fantastic room and 2 horrible. Royal Lahaina, saying you are renovating does not bring comfort to those who have to stay in rooms that are old, moldy, and have paper thin walls (literally heard someone cutting their nails) and it is without conscience that you would offer those out. For a lot of people Maui is the trip of a life time and if you are stuck with a poor room you will have a bad sleep and possibly worse from the mold. Unforgivable business practice Royal Lahaina. If you are lucky enough to get a decent room (as we had one out of the three ) it will make all the difference. Kim at the front desk deserves a raise and a promotion. I can't imagine some of what she has to deal with on a daily basis due to the uneven experience guests have due to decent rooms versus decrepit rooms. We didn't have our room cleaned for three days (garbage attracted cockroaches, no toilet paper) and Kim saved us. Also thanks to caretaker Willy who literally had to drive us to hotel garbage site to rid of overflowing garbage cans. Prepare yourself for the size of Maui cockroaches. Shout out to Stephanie at the front desk for her lovely disposition. Still not sure what we paid resort fee for. Are we funding the renos? Again, management you should really check your policy of letting out the horrible rooms. The decent thing to do would be to close them until they are habitable. What the poor practice of the management/owner at the resort took from us Maui gave back. Mahalo to the beautiful people of Maui. Thank you for sharing your beauty with us. A few tips - the towel hut has free sunscreen and after sun care at the side, not visible right away. The shops at Fairway are cheaper and just a few blocks away. Round Table pizza is close by and good (thanks again for the tip Kim!) And take the trolley to the Hyatt to see the penguins - the landscaping is spectacular and you will see parrots, flamingos, and swans for free. Mahalo to the kind people at the resort. See Eleanor in the gift store and Helena will take care of your tours. Both so kind and lovely. The manager Ford at the restaurant is very nice and truly cares. Reyhall at front entrance great at sharing tips for island. So happy we were able to take once in a lifetime trip but would not go back. Aloha. …
Room ac unit was too loud while in use, had to turn off at night to be able to sleep. Requested Coffee&Sugar to be deliver to room, waited over 90min still did not get it. Overall pay over $500+ that include parking & resort fees was not a good value at all.
This resort has friendly staff. However, for the price, there are some typical amenities missing. The resort charges $75 per day to use a beach umbrella. There is no shade apparatus provided by the resort. There is only one dining facility that is typically overpriced with a limited menu. There is a coffee bar and ice cream shop on the property as well as a beautiful general store. The bungalows are sparsely appointed. Not all bungalows have a view of the ocean or outside areas to enjoy the sun/view. The hot tub doesn’t work. I think it would be worth your while to explore other options. The resort is mediocre at best.
To make a long story short, here are some of the reasons you shouldn’t go here: Hidden fees (careful they’re hefty) Expensive parking Expedia lists what is included with the fees but hotel does not agree Huge disconnect between Expedia and Hotel Fiasco at check out due to hidden fees, manager slams door on guests Manager refuses to speak to anyone Hotel is pretty boring No water in room, not even for the first night, so if you get there late and you’re thirsty well you’re screwed Room is old and dusty/rusty showers No chairs nor umbrellas nor anything on beach so you go there for the beach but you can’t enjoy it?! So many little but important points like this.. Don’t get me wrong, Maui is beautiful but not at this place, stay near the harbour or another hotel where there’s a little more ambiance and respect especially after paying so much money for staying.. …
Staff and amenities were great. Location was perfect. I really do not have much constructive criticism to offer. If i had to be picky, I would say that the A/C in the rooms was a bit spotty at times making the nights slightly inconsistent, but I am the only one in my family who noticed. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we will be staying there again.
Excellent resort. Had an initial issue with my bungalow on arrival and Gretchen and Kim handled it promptly and made the issue right. Gretchen was very sweet to make sure I was happy with the fixed situation and handled the issue with kindness and professionalism.
Gretchen and Ken at desk, superstars. Friendly service all around. Rooms were clean, house ladies in the hall always smiling. Perfect place for a “Hawaii” Vacation. A home away from home…but more relaxing.
We stayed at RH and wasn’t sure what to expect do to it being less cost than a Westin and older. Highly recommend. All the Maui feel of a big resort but smaller and more intimate. Beech feels like it’s private because it’s north of the hustle of main black rock but a nice cove to snorkel if you want to walk 100 yards. Defiantly staying there again. We did the tower ocean view and it was great but next time would do the bungalow. The convenience we saw of walking to and from room to nap or regroup either for pool or beech day would have been awesome. They were actively renovating/updating areas but they try to not have it interfere with guests.
