Great place to stay on the beach
This is specific to room 519 at the Royal Mauian. What a great place to stay during a trip to Maui. Room was very clean and well stocked. Location was great. Walk out the back door to a great beach. Very private and upscale location with plenty to do and see. Would highly recommend.
You cannot ask for a better, more in-the-zone spot on Maui. A family of five, no worries about cars because everything was walking distance. Sup board (stand up paddle boards) rentals directly across the street. Restaurants all around and the very best beach directly in front (Kam I).
I would rent this unit over and over. Alii Resorts is super easy to deal with and great customer service. The condo is fine. Not glamorous. Just fine. You are here for the location. They have in room laundry and a/C. Two things that are fairly difficult to find on Maui.
We thought it was great. Loved it.
Great location, steps to beach, comfortable and responsive mana
Stayed here for a week. Loved it. Great snorkeling (and turtles) right out front door. Convenient location. The condo is well maintained and very comfortable!
This is our second stay at the Royal Mauian and our first in unit #519. We love this space for its size and the ease of access to the wonders of Maui. It has been renovated and has all ameneties necessary to feel at home. We did entertain a fair bit in our unit and one missing piece is wine glasses, could have used a few more.
Couldn't have been happier!
We spent a week in this unit and we were very pleased with all the unit had to offer. This was our first time not staying ocean front but it didn't bother us one bit. The unit was completed updated, clean and very comfortable for our family of four and we still had a view from the lanai so we had nothing to complain about. The rental company was also exceptionally helpful and accomodating from start to finish which was a nice treat. Much easier than dealing with an individual living thousands of miles away! I'd recommend this place to anyone.
Great condo , great balcony , very good air conditioning , and awesome location. Will definitely stay there again.
We booked based on the cost as it was listed as a ''partial view'' unit, and we e to do things on Maui, not for the view. The room was clean and contained all the amenities we needed with three teen-agers: kitchen, laundry and proximity to stores and restaurants. The ali"i resort people were very easy to work with thru the entire process.
The service was very good, someone always available by phone if I had a question or concern. The suite was nice, had everything we needed and the location was superb. We liked being central (in Kehei) as well as being on the same side of the road as the beach. The roof top deck is amazing and we had wonderful sunset dinners on the roof deck. Also liked falling asleep under the stars in the lawn chairs near our building. It would have been useful to have more items at our disposal like beach toys, boogie boards, etc. A family we met on the beach gave us these items to use when they left and we left them for the next guests in suite 519! Hope they came in handy like they did for us. As well, the beds are very comfortable. Only complaint: the suite needs a new cooler. The current cooler was very dirty and we had to wash it out and it is quite torn (and was like that when we started using it). Otherwise, everything was great!
Very comfy condo & great rooftop patio for watching sunsets
Overall we enjoyed staying in #519. The resort personnel were very welcoming and helpful. The condo was in a great location, within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. And Kihei is a central spot for travelling elsewhere on the island. #519 was well kept up and having 3 a/cs in the condo was great. The rooftop patio was beautiful. We had a few concerns though. The couch was very uncomfortable, definitely needs replacing. The living room rug was very stained. The showers' edges and grout could have been cleaned a little bit better. And the kitchen was very poorly stocked with any food products, cooking spices etc. There were only a couple of little jars of bbq spices. There wasn't any sugar, salt or pepper -the basics. Got expensive having to buy all of these items. We had heard of others that rented elsewhere having a fully stocked kitchen, so we were surprised to see this one was not stocked at all. But overall, we really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go again.
Spectacular roof top sunsets!
Had a wonderful stay in unit 519. we went knowing the we didn't have a ocean front unit, and it really wasn't much of a concern. We were either on the beach or on the roof cooking and eating. The roof top patio was an amazing place to watch the sunsets and visit with other guests. We would definitely go back!
The condo was in a terrific location for sun, sand and snorkelling.
Kihei is a great central location for travelling to the rest of the island.
The unit itself was updated, extremely clean and well stocked. Also, all bedrooms had a/C units (which is very rare for this complex.) The lanai was the only disappointment- as it is very loud and hot with the air-conditoning fan running. We would definitely recommend to friends?family and we would stay again!
Loved the location, not so much the view...
So this is the thing... the vast majority of units at the Royal Maui have ocean facing views that are spectacular, but 519 (and all the 19s) are not in that majority. Instead, they mostly face the parking lot, and the building adjacent to it, with just a sliver of ocean view if you are on the rail of the lanai. So that was pretty hard to take, given the premium price, and our intentions of relaxing at sunset on our lanai with elderly guests. Also, the noise from dumpster trucks and leaf blowers every morning seemed excessive and too early for a vacation destination. Upsides were: lots of space in the renovated 2 bdrm. Great location on first class beaches with food & shopping steps away,modern appliances with w/d and dishwasher, beautiful rooftop BBQ patio, great front counter staff, prompt service response to missing fry pan, ample parking. In truth I've no regret but the missing sunset from the lanai, which was for me, more important this time around than it need be for other visits. I might stay there again...
Have stayed at the Royal Mauiian in the past but not for 10 years. It was still as great as I had remembered. Best location in Kihei and the property is very well maintained.Had both my son and daughter with their chilren over the 2 weeks and everyone had a greay time.
we love the royal mauian and the beautiful beach 25th visit!
The service was great #519 was very nice - clean and
nicely decorated - great kitchen - best location - best beaches ! Always have the best vacations in Maui! Alii
Resorts were very helpful in every way - would highly recommend to anyone! Have been coming to Maui for over twenty five years - stay at least two months at a time
sometimes up to four months! Love Maui !!!
Fantastic time , comfy and like a second home away
Unit 519 was a great choice for our vacation. We spent a fair bit of time in the room due to poor weather, but did not feel like we were cramped. Loved the tropical decorations and lay out, and really hope to return soon.Perfect location to shops and the beaches. Barbeque deck was fantastic!
This condo was an excellent location for us, we loved everything about it and would love to go back sometime in the near future. Would probably try oceanview next time but everything about this condo and the bldg. was great !!!
Can't wait to do it again!!!
It was like staying home away from home, very cozy and relaxing and close to everything.
This is a great location for a great price.
We thought everything about this condo was as advertised. However, we did have some miscommunication with ali'i Resort management and had to pay for an extra day, which we thought should have been waived.
Great location, nice suite
We had a wonderful vacation at the Mauian. Our family, including 2 teenagers, found the accomodations excellent. Located right on the ocean, with a good view from the balcony (not direct but still nice). The suite was very clean. Full kitchen plus washer and drier - very handy for longer stays. Intenet connection so kids could keep in contact with their friends on facebook. Located between 2 beautiful beaches. You can rent surf boards near by. Excellent snorkling right on the beach - saw fish and turtles.
Lots to do within reasonable drive. Shopping within walking distance as well as lots of good restaurants. 20-30 minute drive to Lahaina which has shopping, dining and a great Luau. My husband did lots of golfing. There are excellent snorkling, whale watching and dolphin watching tours that leave close to the condo.
Airport is 20 minutes away. Also there is a walmart and costco close to the airport - great for groceries.
Overall, a great place to go as a couple or family. We are going back again this year.
Great weather and nice condo,awesome location tothe best beach.
The condo was great and when we had a couple of problems upper condo leaking into ours the aLI staff was quick to get on the issue. The view from the side deck was ok if you were at the edge rails and if you ran the a/C it was way to hot and noisy to sit on the lanaii. So view not good but cond location is good and the beach is great Kamaole#1 I think. Pool was very clean. We should have used the top floor barbecue area more it was very nice.
The place was nice and met all our needs. My family owns a condo next door so I missed staying there, especially for free. The place was clean, updated, nice style, everything the photos showed. No surpirses thankfully!! Welcome gift basket was nice touch. Fyi, drain in the bathroom nearest kitchen needs to be cleaned. Water backed up fairly quickly while showering. Not gross or anything, just for your info.
Our stay in unit 519 at the Royal Mauian couldn't have been better. The condo seemed to be recently renovated, was very clean with new appliances and comfortable furniture. Our host did a great job welcoming us, showing us the amenities of the condo and providing recommendations for places to eat in the area. We look forward to staying here again in the near future!
