  • 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."

  • Totally Impressed!

    "This was the first time that our family had booked through VRBO and we were a little nervous about selecting a condo without any knowledge of its condition, location etc. I have to say that we were more than pleased with the whole experience. From the ease of booking the condo through the management company (Paradise Vacations) to the comforts and conveniences of this beautiful condo, our Vacation was fantastic! The unit was very nicely decorated and stocked with almost everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The updated kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the beach accessories that were provided and we even donated a couple more boogie boards for the next guests to enjoy! The grounds were impeccably maintained and we made good use of the bbq's, tennis courts and swimming pools. Each morning my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the lanai with our coffee's listening to the birds sing and the views of the Cove where our teenage kids learned to surf.The location of the condo couldn't have been better. Charlie Young beach right across the street was one of our favorite beaches. There were plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance and our kids found it easy to get a gelato or shaved ice. Best place we found for snorkeling was at Makena Beach (kids loved the turtles). We rented snorkel equipment from one of the many Snorkel Bob's found in the Kihei area. We took the Trilogy Whale watch on a catamaran and even though the ocean was rough that day we had a great time, were well treated and saw some whales. The road to Hana was just as we had heard. Lots of curves! Make sure if you decide to drive it that you have lots of time, some gravol and be sure to stop at some the beach areas along the way. We really enjoyed the black sands at Waianapanapa State Park and the huge waves at Ho’okipa Beach Park and Homoa Beach. Although it's only been a month since we were there (Feb 2016) we are already talking about returning again one day. I would definitely stay here again if its available!"

  • Loved it!

    "We stayed at this condo for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was in a very nice, conveniently located condo complex with a nice pool and communal BBQ. The kitchen was perfect for cooking, and the balcony very nice for dinner. We did not have time to test the TV - too busy with other adventures! We also liked that it was within walking distance of the beach, good restaurants and a corner store. All in all, we had a great time and the owner was very helpful in setting it all up."
