    My opinion and views

    I love the "family owned" resort. The staff are welcoming, friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a great one. Yes, the resort needs some love (but who doesn't) it's family owned not corporate owned, so they have their limits, so get over your righteous self. I've stayed there every year (5 - 6 yrs) that I have traveled to Maui, I do like the smaller resort as I have tried a larger corporate owned resort was truly disappointed (Kaanapali Beach Hotel) had a smoker in the building where I had my room. I have asthma and it wasn't a good stay for me and the front desk didn't really care about my health concerns. So I will always go back to Royal Lahaina for my vacation stays. I am truly grateful to the owners of the Royal Lahaina for having Ohana to their fellow islanders and helping them from the devastating Lahaina fire :( I'm hopeful that when I go on vacation this year that I can stay at the Royal Lahaina (but I understand the reason if I can't because they are housing displaced islanders). Keep up the helpful great support. Mahalo R. Dane

    Wonderful restaurant inside Royal Lahaina Resort, Maui

    My wife and I travelled to Maui frequently. During our recent morning walk along the beach at Kaanapali, we strolled to the Royal Lahaina resort and found the restaurant tucked inside at the end of the lobby. We looked at the menu and decided to come back for some dishes later. When we came back for dinner , we were greeted by the manager named Ford. He toke the time to greet us and gave us the history of the resort and told us the charitable efforts of the owner to accommodate local residents who were displaced by the fire in Lahaina plus the American Red Cross volunteers that helped with the recovery work. We were shown the layout of the restaurant, located right by the beach with breath taking sunset views. My wife had the beet salad, and I had the mixed plate with pulled pork, fish, and Teriyaki chicken. Plus rice and macaroni salad. All nicely done. Will go back again.

    Vacation of a Lifetime

    My family had a wonderful time during our stay. We spent 2 nights in the hotel, and four nights in the beach bungalow. The hotel room was dated, and in need of some TLC. Despite this, it was suitable for our needs. Our favorite experience was sitting on the balcony at sunset, having drinks while and listening to the luau. The bungalow was absolutely stunning. The grounds of the resort were inviting and safe. The beach was beautiful, and we could easily hear the whale mating calls simply by dipping our heads in the water. A personal beach high light was renting a kayak from the hotel, and experiencing the whales up close. A note of caution about the ocean. While my family and I swam in the ocean almost every day of our stay, there were times when the surf became too rough. When the waves became too intense for our liking, we simply relocated to the main pool for swimming and cocktails. The most memorable part of our stay was the staff. We found the staff to be attentive and helpful. I recall one specific conversation I had with a staff member who exuded an absolute passion for hospitality. After nearly 20 years in the service industry, I have come to appreciate how difficult it is to please todays customers. Consequently, I have a real appreciation for individuals who care deeply and sincerely about the art of service.

    Home away from home!

    Well, this is a late review because I’m a procrastinator but, I tell ya, every week since our trip I have said to myself: I got to write that review!! We loved the Royal Lahaina!! So central to everything, sadly, the island has been through so much trauma since we were there. The views are incredible. The beach is right there and there are 2 pools to sit with your family and drink and chill! We especially wanted to say thank you to Ford, who made us feel so cared for!! He was the highlight of our trip and the reason why I remembered to write this review
