  • No problems

    "Spent 3 weeks at the condo. Manager was nice. Units are older but clean. Enjoyed the pool, swam daily. Chlorine level seemed fine. Closet has mats, boogie boards, noodles, beach chairs. Our two teens could fit on the pull out couch. The king bed was awesome. The neighbor tenant was friendly. We LOVED Charley Young beach. Also walkable to several restaurants and grocery stores. Just wished they had recycling on the property. Other condos we stayed at had recycling. Great for a budget traveler."

  • Rough start but no complaints

    "The most important information you need to know is that the owner is very good to work with. There were some issues we found on arrival and they were dealt with immediately and we were grateful. We spoke with the owner who lives on the mainland. He relies on his contacts in Maui, and that can cause some issues for him at times. He does his best tho, and we were satisfied in the end. This resort is one of the oldest in Kihei and it can show it in the units. This unit has no direct view of the water, but a sideways look off the lanai gives you a nice glance. The water sounds and breeze at night are perfect, and no one has direct view into this unit for nice privacy. The stairs right outside the door are so convenient, but the elevator is not a far walk either. Having a washer and dryer in the unit is helpful. Beach towels, linens, a full (but small) kitchen make living easy. We also used the boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella. While the unit is small (850 sf) it is laid out well and having windows on 3 sides make for a comfortable stay. There is no A/C but none is needed with the ceiling fans running. A TV in each bedroom and the living room let everyone have what they want. The location is so convenient, and while you will hear traffic and people throughout the day, the noise is gone by 10:00pm and only the birds will wake you in the morning. Parking is easy, the location perfect for every direction and the access to the water and snorkeling right outside your door. Grab a glass of wine, and pull up a lawn chair to watch the turtles feed every late afternoon while the sunset relaxes you completely. We enjoyed our first stay in Kihei, and are grateful for the easy communication with the owner. But, remember this is not a hotel. You will not get cleaning service during your stay, and the main office is closed after 4:00 pm and all weekend. If you need help you must contact the emergency number, which didn't initially answer when we called. You will get only basic paper goods, but once you run out you buy your own. Bring your own shampoo/conditioner/soap because you only get one tiny bottle of each. One use and you need to get your own. This unit is not handicap (wheelchair) accessible due to at least 2 steps in any direction to the front door. But there is a lift in the pool and walkers and cane users are not going to have trouble. Thank you Dennis for your hospitality. We enjoyed our stay."

  • Wonderful location on the best beach on Maui

    "My wife and I have been visiting Maui regularly for over 40 years and have been fond of the Kihei area and Kameole beaches over those years. This year we brought along my cousin and his wife for their 1st ever visit to Hawaii. The first 3 days were spent in Honolulu so we could all visit Pearl Harbor, but then down to Maui for a week of relaxation and the real Hawaii experience. We love Kam 1 beach and have stayed at the Royal Mauian once before; we chose it because of its unbeatable proximity to the ocean...about 50 feet! Since we had first timers along this time we did some typically tourist-like things such as the Old Lahaina Luau (expensive but quite good food and entertainment), Haleakala Crater, Mama's Fish House (also expensive but SO worth it!). We also took them to our favorite Maui entertainer Willie K at Mulligan's on the Blue in Wailai; never disappointing. Alii Resorts was wonderful with their communications throughout the booking process; we called them upon our early arrival in Kahului and they gave us an estimated time to meet them at the condo and advised that they would call us on our cell phone. This worked out very well for us as we had a bite to eat and did a bit of shopping and exploring. We met the Alii Resorts representative at the unit and she explained everything to us before leaving. The unit was well equipped with starter supplies which actually got us through the week (TP, soap, laundry and dishwasher detergent, trash bags, etc.). The view from the lanai was wonderful along with the convenient access to the beach. The 2 bedroom unit had 3 TV's all of which had balky remotes, the front door was a bit hard to close but these are really just nits...it's Hawaii and we did not need the TV to entertain us! The Royal Mauian is the best location to enjoy an oceanside experience in Hawaii and we certainly did."
