Stayed 9 nights in a tower suite, facing the ocean and the West Maui Mountains. Able to catch sunrise over the mountains AND sunset over the island of Lanai from the corner wall of windows in the master bedroom. We turned off the ac and left the sliding doors open all day and night to the air and sound of...

Wow Maui is really a paradise! My wife and I made our first trip to Maui this Christmas and stayed at the Royal Lahaina Resort. Friends of ours who have made the trip to Hawaii three times recommended the hotel and even though they were not as bleak about the cottages as many reviewers are we elected to stay on...

Stayed in the main building. Nice room although slightly outdated. Parking is a real problem Eventhogh you paid for parking you can find yourself driving around for a long while to locate a vacant spot. Evenings are the most difficult. The staff is the most sour faced unsmiling bunch I ever encountered at hotels. Had problem with bedside lamp that...

Our Lahaina Kai Tower is a beautiful 12 story tower that was renovated in 2005. Furnishing are a beautiful dark wood and a very modern feel. We are located right on the Kaanapali beach. Whale season has arrived and our friends are seen daily. We do pride ourself on our associates and their ablility to make our guest feel like...

We got there a bit early and they offered to give us a "free upgrade" from our ocean front rooms to a cottage. Little did we know that it was actually a downgrade, it wasn't what they made it seem. The rooms are old and poorly maintained, the outdoor facilities were ok. Way over priced for the type of hotel.

We checked into ocean front cottage - imagined walking out to the beach. Yeah. You can do that - except the cottage is absolutely uninhabitable. Shabby. Old. Ants. We upgraded to the tower - which the front receptionist women were not very helpful about - actually kinda nasty. (When checking out, they made us to return beach towels to the...

We are currently in the process of giving our cottages a facelift. New fixtures, carpet, more privacy on the lanai's and a new look. Stay tuned and you will be pleasantly surprised on your next visit. Cottages are very popular and sold out the majority of the year as we are the only ones to in Kaanapali to have these...

We didn't have the best view -- kind of at the far end of the building, away from the ocean. But great view from our patio -- ocean on one side, mountain on the other; and in front the golf course. Beautiful all the time. They have a wonderful bar singer -- Josh Sumibcay -- who plays in the lounge...

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your Hawaiian vacation with us.

(I find reviews can be influenced by good or bad experiences and might not always be the fault of the hotel, I would take an average from the good and bad reviews and look for similar groups to yours?)

Wished we could have stayed longer. After a 10 1/2 hour flight we landed and drive approximately 1 hour or so in the dark to the hotel. I had booked a room in a "tower" versus the cottages, as most reviews for cottages weren't stellar. Although the grounds surrounding cottages are quite nice, next to the golf course. Our room...
