This is the second time we have stayed at the RLR. The last time was 13 years ago. The hotel itself is in great shape, the staff if very friendly and accommodating. This time my daughter and here 3 kids were with us along with our 9 year old grandson, they loved the beach area.

We loved having such easy access to the beach! It’s not one of those resorts that shows great beach pictures and you get there to find it far away and full of rocks. It has a beautiful sandy beach just steps from the pool!

I'm so grateful for our stay at the Royal Lahaina, and my husband and I can't wait to book another trip in a few years time! Read less

This was our third stay at the RLR, but the first time we stayed in the cottages. Our previous two stays were in the tower, which were both fantastic. This time, our first room was not large enough to accommodate two double beds, so the person sleeping on the wall side of the bed had to climb down to the foot of the bed to get out. Also, the wall AC unit was leaking condensation into the room, soaking the carpet, and causing what looked like mold. I appreciate Stephanie at the front desk, who moved us to a different cottage room after the first night, explaining that this was the earliest she had availability. The new room had updated carpet and a nicer restroom, though the room was still outdated. All in all, the cottages need work. The restroom mirror was old and spotted, and the bathroom tile was seriously outdated. Thankfully, we were only in our rooms in the evening. The staff at the restaurant is especially friendly. We are grateful to Rosie, Christy, and Marissa, who made us feel at home. My kids enjoyed the buffet breakfast, and having it included in our room made things easy. The RLR is located perfectly— excellent beach, close to Whaler’s Village (plus the Trolley is a bonus), but far enough to feel a bit more private. We had a great time! We hope to return to Maui again, but we may be looking for a different hotel if the RLR doesn’t update the cottages! Read less

Very friendly staff. Nice beach and pools. Bathroom were little dated. But clean rooms and bathroom. Kids had lot of fun. Did not have microwave in the room . the restaurant was kind enough to warm some kids food. Great for visitors with kids
