Royal Lahaina Resort
- What's Included
We booked this hotel for our 20th anniversary for the week of December 5th, 2016. This was our first time to Hawaii and Maui was a good fit for us. Ocean View rooms on a high floor are just as good as ocean front views in our opinion, so you could save a little $. We were on the 10th floor, right side of ocean, and had a great view of the neighboring island of Molokai. Those on the left side of hotel with have a view of Lanai Island. The room was beautiful, the balcony was also. The bathroom was set up great with the sink outside the room with the shower and toilet. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever been in. The elevators worked well, and we thought the decor was great - they were shifting over to holiday decorations while we were there. We ate at the hotel restaurant twice, have to agree with most posters, the food was good, but on the pricey side (though to be fair, everything is expensive in Maui.) They have a great setup with the excursion office right next door and many things are in walking distance, including several eating places and two snorkeling beaches. Driving in and out was easy as well. This hotel was fairly central to everything we wanted to do, excursions left from here or were a short distance away. The Luau was set up on our side (right side of hotel when facing ocean) but we did not find it too intrusive, even though we tended to go to sleep early as we are east coasters. We loved this hotel and would stay again.
I really liked this resort. We didn't have the greatest room. Third floor, standard view, You know, the cheap room.It was still a good room. You can sit out on the balcony. The shutters let the room get really dark. The bathroom/ closet area is roomy and you can shield the light from the main room. The restaurant is good. The breakfast buffet looked really good and they did a great job of have the breakfast menu items be both cheaper than the buffet and not things you could get on the buffet. It look out over the pool and in the evening they have music and hula dancing.Protip - DH tipped the hula dancer a dollar and she followed us and gave me lei she had been making. The lei lasted for days. I don't know if she does this for everyone. But if you see her making leis, its worth tipping her. The hotel beach is fairly quiet, at least when we were there. It has shape and was just lovely to sit on and watch the waves. Over all it was a great place and we had a good time there. Next time we come I will certainly try to stay here again.
My new Husband and I stayed here or 5 nights of our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised when we could check in early, around 10am, and we were then surprised we had our room in one of the "cottages" on the grounds, it was amazing. We had a king bed with a full bathroom and a mini fridge, with a view of the golf course. The food at the restaurant was a little pricey, but very good. The only complaint that we had was a couple days our room was not cleaned. We were given new towels, but our old towels were still hanging there, and our garbage (which was full) had not been taken away. Other than the 2 days that his happened, we had an amazing honeymoon at this resort.
We chose to have our wedding at this resort due to its location and reviews and were not disappointed! The resort is right on a quiet beach and is equipped with plenty of activities including a tennis court, gym, fitness classes, pool, spa, restaurant and a luau - no need to leave ;) The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the tower and the room and view were fantastic. The wedding went so smoothly and we were very happy with the organisation. A wonderful place to stay!
The place itself is stunning, no question asked. The resort is located along the Ka anapali Beach, where you see beautiful sunset, backed with beautiful mountains. It's in the middle of the beach walk among other resorts nearby. We had a partial seaview room with both the view of the beach and the mountain that suited us well. The room was clean and tidy however I'm not a big fan of the open sink/kitchen counter arrangement. There's not sink in the bathroom and it's outside of the bathroom, which itself was rather tiny. You have to turn the mirror on the wall to see yourself from the sink which offers poor lighting. I needed to stand on the other side of the kitchen counter to put on makeup. The room is best suited for couple or less. We came as 3 adults. It made it tough to have privacy as getting change in the small bathroom was a bit of a task. I always believe satisfaction is exceeding expectation. However, our expectation was not managed well this time around. We called early to see if early check-in was available with our booking info before we headed over from the airport. By the time we arrived, we were notified that our room got upgraded to a full ocean view room but only we found out the room was only with a king bed. I can't imagine sharing a big bed with my parents as a working adult. So we waited until 4pm, not a minute earlier to get our room with a partial ocean view which was what we booked for. Also, the full ocean view room upgrade was based on the misinformation of 1 night stay instead of 3 which we fully paid way before our arrival. Teresa from Front Desk was very helpful and apologetic about that and she gave us pool access card while we were waiting for our room to be ready. (We arrived around noon and the room was finally ready at 4pm). There were some construction or maintanence work going on so the room got noisy after 8:30 am. Our flight was not until 5pm on Jan 5 so we asked for late checkout. The front desk on the other end of the phone was showing annoyance from her tone informing us that we won't know if late check out was available until the date of departure. To me, her tone just sounded blunt, not the hospitable tone we expected from any resort hotels around the globe. Of course, late check out was not available and they did offer us a room for shower for 30 minutes, which we declined. We needed to exit the room before 11am. To us, our expectation was not met. It was not the hotel was not good but it's over promised and under delivered in our case.Overall I would recommend the location but I do have mixed feeling toward the service.
