Stayed in room 807. It was renovated and well stocked with more items than we expected or used. Very comfortable and great view from the Lanai. Beach was great and the closet had great beach chairs, umbrella, and more. Con: it is not in the nicest area. Overall it was a great experience and is a great place to stay... More

We are staying at the Hawaiin Princess, room #608. I feel so lucky to have gotten this unit! The setting is amazing~ the condo itself is perfect!! I'll start with the cons: -You do have to go through a very run down area, and the closest grocery store is in that kind of area.the native people are warm once you... More

We really loved the resort on our first visit in 2012. Rented directly with a condo owner through VRBO and had a great experience. This time we went through Trading Places which runs the timeshares and also acts as an agent to rent some of the units. All through the booking process we were sent correspondence on a specific unit.... More

Fabulous staff, clean suites, awesome location, best beach in Oahu. What's not to like. Manager Kim and her staff really care about their guests. We own 6 weeks and love every minute. We come every year

These condos are old probably built in the 70's. They are well maintained, and the beach access is outstanding. The downside to this property is that it is in a very bad part of town with very few amenities. The grocery store is quite small and you have to check your backpack at the front. The,location of the condo is... More

I stayed here with my daughter and my 80-year-old mother, the first leg of our two week stay on Oahu. If you want a quiet place to stay with access to a beautiful beach, this is the place to stay. Mahaka Turtle Beach is stunning, we even saw a few sea turtles during our early morning workouts. If you are... More

The only thing that marred our stay at the Hawaiian Princess was the fact that they were doing major exterior renovations - very noisy. And I almost drowned in the deceptively easy looking surf of the beach directly outside the building. Fortunately folks sitting on the beach were quick to help an old lady. Lesson learned: stick with a lifeguard... More

I was a little skeptical about the resort after reading some other reviews about bugs and negative signage around the resort. I was pleasantly surprised to not have any of these concerns. In fact the staff was very friendly, especially security, the resort was clean, and the beach was beautiful without the crowds! They had boogie boards and 2 BBQ... More

First, let me say that this property is about an hour and fifteen drive from the Waikiki area. Traffic is very congested getting here. If you are planning on doing a lot of site seeing, this is probably NOT your place. If you are looking for immunities...bar, good fancy places to eat, etc. NOT your place. BUT if you are... More

Away from crowds...spectacular views. Today my family saw four whales from our Lanai and while snorkeling three sea turtles and better snorkeling than Hanama Bay. We stayed in condo #902 and it was gorgeous and you can hear the waves from every room.
