Nice oceanfront room for the price
Posted Nov 23, 2016
This was our second time staying at the Royal Kahana while on Maui. We stayed in a 1 bedroom oceanfront room this time (last time partial ocean view studio) and we were very pleased with the room! We had a great view from the living room and bedroom. The Lanai was also spacious so we sat out there many mornings and enjoyed coffee. They provided dish soap and one laundry detergent packet but if you need more, you can ask the front desk (which we did). The kitchen and bathroom were also modern and had all of the basic utensils and appliances (stove, microwave, sink, dish washer, oven).
Now on to the less pleasing things...their beach is gone so you need to either walk over to the Sands of Kahana (not too far) or get in your car and drive. Since the best beaches for snorkeling aren't in the immediate area, this wasn't a terrible problem for us because we would have driven to a different beach anyway but I'm sure this could affect some people's decision. The pool is also average. Nothing too special about it so we didn't spend time there.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel looks a little dated but it's clean and affordable.
