Price and upgade
Our one bedroom unit worked well. We ate in or out as suited us. Nice 3.5 mile beach trail starts in a park just south of the property; good for running and walking, but could be contested in spots. we had full access to the timeshare immediately south, and frequented the happy hour at their beach/pool bar and their lounge chairs. Grounds were lush and attractive. Beach was nice to look at, but not very useable, as it was small and the surf was high. Too small even for lounging. Next door was better.
The view and the pools are very nice and I was impressed with them. The food and drinks were just average. I understand that more people cook themselves in this type of property and not to expect a five star experience. The service was weak and inattentive in the restaurant, enough to get you your meal, but mostly feeling in different.
Huge room. Gorgeous views. Huge tub. Beautiful tile work. Big kitchen. Washer and dryer The beds were just awful. They were rock hard and not comfy at all. The pillows were small. Had a very hard time sleeping. No coffee maker!!!
It was on the ocean. Grounds were clean. The room we initially were assigned to had not been cleaned. Beds were torn apart and toiletries were sitting on the vanity. Our subsequent room had ants.
The location was wonderful and the pools and grounds were very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our roof leaked when it rained. We had to move one of the beds over because it was dripping on the bed. The television was old and hard to figure out the stations.
We actually never stayed at the Ka'anapali Ocean Inn...when we checked in, they were over-booked so they put us up in 1st floor, oceanfront cottage room at the Royal Lahaina...it was great. Just a few steps to the beach, a few more steps to the pool and a wonderful view out the sliding glass doors. Every member of the staff, from checking in, to taking us to our room, to the breakfast buffet, to checking out...everyone was great. We live on Oahu and came over for 1 night for our son's birthday...we would stay here again. There was a damp, moldy smell, but we wrote it off as being close to the ocean and the cottages being older. However, as we were leaving, we noticed in the closet, that the wall between the shower and the closet was moldy, the carpet there was wet and the base board was starting to disintegrate.
It was quiet and the staff accomodated us when we asked for a different room. It is an older hotel and even though the hallways are covered, they are still accessible from the outside so anyone walking by could enter and come to your room door. The original ocean front unit was right next door to a luau and with the west exposure, the air conditioner could not keep up with the sun shining in and it got quite warm. Free internet is in the lobby only of the larger hotel several doors down but not in the room. There is a $10 self parking charge and the room has a shower only, no bathtub. There is also no elevator.
I had a wonderful time with absolutely no complaints. Nothing.
The design of the resort: the pools, the waterfalls, the wildlife lawns, etc. The staff are consistently nice and patient, the shuttle service within Ka'anapoli area, the size of the rooms. Compares to other resorts in the area such as Marriott and Westin, Hyatt's rate is very reasonable about average of $350/night. Son'z restaurant food was terrible for 5-star, fine-dinning categorization. The popcorn ceilings in the rooms can be upgraded. It has no beach - we'd have to walk further the Marriott resort for the beach. Hyatt should do a better job enforcing the no-smoking policy on floors designated as non-smoking floors, it's never pleasant to be out on lanai and having to deal with someone next to your unit smoking up a storm.
Nice room, cleanly, beach front, nice pool area and not too bad a price for the area...being close to Lahaina was great! The hotel room we stayed in was a bit of a ways from the lobby and we had to walk through a row of shops to get to the front, but towards the end it wasnt that bad being away from commotion. The breakfast was expensive for what was being offered. It wasnt bad, just not worth $30/person. Parking was $18/day which hurt after we were there for so many days.
I liked the beauty of the resort. All the flowers and the way the pool was designed. Very beautiful grounds. The rooms need to have some upgrades done. Get rid of acustic ceilings old and outdated. The door to the bathroom at the bottom was chipped up and discolored. Moldings in bathroom needed to be recaulked.
It was a nice $200 a night hotel. Unfortunately I paid $600 a night The valet took 15 minutes to get our car and I had to ask twice to get the car. Two of the three elevators were broken so we eventually carried out bags down 5 flights of stairs after waiting 10 minutes. The bartender used his hands to put ice in people's glasss.
The room, the staff, pool, location Dont think that guests need to pay for sofa or seet on the pool.
room service was awesome...food outstanding. Front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. Went to Japengo for dinner...sat us in the lounge area...even though the lanai was ready for seating and to catch the sunset...were told it wasn't open yet although hours of operation stated 5:30...sat with our backs to the water and couldn't see the sunset through the bar...after 10 minutes about 20 Japanese tourists were seated in the restaurant. felt shunned. The floor/carpet was dirty in our room (201). Nasty stains (by the nightstands and throughout the floor) we wore slippahs in the room! Coming from Honolulu, expected more. We were on the second floor and couldn't sit on our lanai since the people next door were out there smoking cigarettes and it smelled disgusting. For $400/night felt ripped off! Also feel parking should be a couple dollars a day...not $16! Then an additional $30 hotel fee???? Hyatt residence club employees were shoving the "timeshare" experience down our throats! Didn't spend that kind of money to try to be persuaded to purchase anything.
Wish I was still there. I left my camera charger in the room. They shipped it back to me. Loved it and would stay again if I can.
Top shelf overall. The beach. Too much coral and rock.
* People/service was great! * View of ocean from room was wonderful * always restocked amenities everyday * very clean bathrooms, room, lobby, etc. * Food was very good Everything was overpriced, but we were in Maui, and Hawaii is expensive ... getting there is only the beginning when it comes to spending $$$$
The view was stunning, and the amenities top notch. That I was unable to stay longer.
Lots of hidden fees. Overpriced food and drinks. They would not give me a complete bill when I checked out. Cost to park my vehicle!
1.) Trotz Grösse der Anlage sehr gutes Essen in allen Restaurants (insbesondere "Tropica"). 2.) Gestaltung des Swimmingpool-Bereiches (inkl. Kinder-/Erwachsenenpools, Flamingo-/Koy-Teich, Höhlen etc.) 3.) Freundliche Angestellte. 1. Zimmer: Grösse und Zustand (eine Renovation wäre erforderlich - ein anderer Flügel des Hotels wurde kürzlich renoviert). Sehr kleines Bad. Waschbecken offen (in Küche integriert). 2.) Grösse des Hotels: ergibt ein eher anonymes Hotelerlebnis. Zudem gibt es nicht immer genug Liegestühle für alle Leute. 4) Liegestühle/Sonnenschirme (Anzahl und Preise) 5.) Lift: sehr alte und langsame Liftanlage
