We stayed at The Royal Lahaina Resort. The first room they assign us was so nasty. Terrible smell and paint peeling in the bathroom ceiling. We had to pay extra to move to another room. This hotel is very old and need major upgrade. I will not stay here again.

This was the most wonderful experience. I will most certainly return to stay at this place. Everyone was wonderful. The place was beautiful and clean. The staff went out of their way to help and make sure you were having a great time. I would recommend this place to everyone that wants to come and visit.
