I have heard great things about the Royal Lahaina Resort but then I found this review that I pasted below from Yelp. Has anyone gotten married there? Is that true about the ceremony sites being aweful? Any real pictures from your ceremony you would care to post? Thank you!
“This review is long over due, but I figure better late then never. My husband and I were getting married in Maui and after alot of searching and looking at pictures of places we decided on the Royal Lahaina. The pictures were beautiful, right next to the ocean in an open area. We were very excited our dream was about to come true. If it could only be that easy. Our wedding coordinator Amy (which I never quite meshed with) took us to see the location once we got there and to our surprise it was right next to the hotel restaurant and swimming pool!! Plus there was a building right next to the ceremony site. Somehow in all the pictures they somehow managed to leave those two major items our of pictures.
She took me to a couple other spots around the hotel, each one being worse than the last. Two days before our wedding we had to change our wedding venue, photographers, videographers, caterers, etc. After we had to threaten the hotel with false advertising we were able to get a full refund and ended up getting married at the Hyatt Regency, which was breathtaking!! So if you are OK with getting married in the middle of the public areas of the hotel then you might be OK with this location. If you are looking for a more secluded beach experience this is definitely not the place!”
