We stayed in #402 which is lovely. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. After traveling the whole island, on our 2nd visit to Oahu, we found the best place was right out our back door. We had more fun just hanging out on the beach than anywhere else on the whole island.

Located on the beautiful and quiet West side of Oahu, the Hawaiian Princess Resort offers amazing views, relaxing activities, and a friendly, helpful staff. A friend's family and I spent a week at this lovely resort. Accommodations are spacious, comforting, and modern. With the ocean right outside your door and a refreshing pool and jacuzzi, you could stay right there... More

This is not your typical 'resort'. It is nice and quiet and small. When we first arrived here we were a little concerned but so enjoyed our time here. Because it is not a touristy type place it was very relaxing. We like to go where the locals are and just blend it and that is exactly what you can... More

My family and I loved this place. We stayed in unit 1505 everything was up to date. Amazing views! We walked to the beach everyday. The staff was great all were nice and friendly. All suggested great places to eat and shop. I will definitely stay there again.

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

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our unit, #1306, at the Hawaiian Princess, and we look forward to having you back. I see from a subsequent review of the Princess that you did indeed come back, booked a unit through Trading Places, and didn't have such a great experience. Most units at the Hawaiian Princess are...

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

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
