Unforgettable epicurean experiences await you at Azure, a world-class seafood restaurant perched along the beach under the canopy of the resort's dramatic Spanish-Moorish architecture. The celebrated Mai Tai Bar sets the stage for romance and elegant relaxation.

No service during strike
renamason, san francisco
Thu Oct 18 14:05:07 EDT 2018
I can’t believe Marriott would allow this strike to go on and make a well planned vacation be ruined. We booked 3 nights and no offer to reduce our room rate. They did eliminate the resort fee which should of been automatic since we had NO room service, food or drinks. Husband had a boot on foot after surgery. We had to walk to get food or drinks as we did not rent a car due to this convient location. We rented a beech umbrella for the day just to hear drumbeats from the picketers. No compensation for the fee we paid. Ruined vacation 🙁 The employees out on strike deserve to be compensated for making it such a wonderful place to stay.

Hotel Staff on Strike - But it is starting to show age.

This hotel is a classic and this is why we picked it. However, it’s getting old - and the check in was SLOOOOWWWW. At 7am we had strikers in the beach banging drums, so we ended up getting $1200 off a 4 night stay. Was worth it for that. Was very glad to have a corner room with excellent beach view. My stay again for the location.

We were very excited to be spending our 7 night Hawaiian vacation at TRH. My husband had a business trip planned, so I researched hotels and this was our number one choice. We checked in on a Saturday and immediately were greeted by protesters who were all prior staff on strike because of wages. We took one of the handouts they were giving out and entered the hotel. We were notified on arrival of all the services that would not be in-service due to the strike. Services that would not be available included: valet, room service, restaurant access, and bar services. This was a disappointment considering we flew all day on Saturday and were wanting to relax fully by using all resort amenities. Not only were the amenities limited, house keeping was limited to collecting trash and making the beds only. We decided to make the best of it, however Monday morning we were awoken by bullhorns and drums from the staff on strike. We went down to breakfast and they were within 10 feet of us. We ate a terrible breakfast on paper plates with plastic utensils and decided afterwards we needed to cancel our umbrella services due to the amount of noise the strikers were making. They are first offered us 100 dollars off. After we insisted we just wanted to cancel the reservation because there was no way we could enjoy the beach they canceled the reservation completely. Once we got to the room however the strike was pretty much surrounding the pool area and we could hear them in our hotel room. I called the front desk at which time they told me they offered me 100 dollars off and that headphones would be provided so that we could enjoy the pool area. I did not fly 12 hours to a dream vacation spot only to have to wear headphones by the pool. After I was told the manager could only offer us 100 dollars off she changed it to 200 dollars, then 300. I finally got her to give us a night’s stay considering we were paying for a lot of amenities that were not available as well as being awoken by noise that continued the rest of the day. She said if we didn’t like the noise we could wear headphones or call the police since they were on a public beach. After discussing with my husband we just considered to leave and go somewhere else. We canceled the rest of our reservation. Huge disappoint!! Check about the status of the strike before checking in!!!

Just perfect

We stayed in October 2017 and our stay is still a memory of bliss! We had a Mailani tower premier oceanfront room and it was well worth it! We purchased a new bed when we got home as the bed was SO comfortable in our room! We could lay in and see the beach! We dined in the Mailani lounge for breakfast which was delicious with fruits, pastries, cereal or toast, lots of hot drinks and juice, in the evening light refreshments and drinks, I had wine and it was nice! Handy to relax in the lounge for a couple of drinks before dinner out. Everything about this hotel is devine, the location is perfect! Concierge are attentive as are desk staff, delicious cocktails at the bar! We had a storm one night while at the bar, all of the furniture blew around...staff were amazing, we all managed to get inside safely, good experience as we went and had room service snacks (pic attached) We did lots of shopping, helicopter flight and busy days out, could not have had a better more comfortable place to return to each day....did I mention the robes!!! To die for. Best robe ever worn in my life. Get the upgrade, we stayed for 10 nights I reccomend a min of that.

Nice boutique style hotel

We had a wonderful 2 nights stay at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. Love the “old” building. Nice few to the garden site. Rooms comfortable and clean. Quiet area. Nice, friendly staff. Plus: beach area is close by and clean. The only minus point is that the swimming pool is very small. For children good, but not good to swim and relax.
