Stunning location right in the middle of the strip....get the sea view it's worth it. Clean rooms but shame about building site next door. The bar and restaurant area not great... Service and variety limited.

We had two rooms here for three nights with our 20 month old son and my mum. Most of our requests weren't followed (king bed, cot in our room, adjoining rooms) however we didn't argue given that we arrived at about 10pm. The cot situation was fixed immediately and it arrived in our room just as we did. Unfortunately us... More

Just spent 3 days in Honolulu at the Beachcomber. This hotel is located in a great part of Honolulu. Less than a 5 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

Location is superb with great beach and sea views and of Diamond Head, Cheesecake Factory and soon to be Jimmy Choo's shoes across the road. Pool is smallish but excellent, great padded recliners, shade tent, 2 bars and restaurant metres away, hot tub adjacent. Wonderful pool to relax in early evening.

We spent a very special 3 days there with our 13 year old granddaughter at summer's end. The location is unbeatable for the price - literally across the street from the access to the beautiful Waikiki Beach. The staff gave us a room with 2 beds at the regular price. The room was clean and functional, but I wouldn't classify... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this one...we relocated from another property a couple of days into our Waikiki stay and found this to be an excellent choice. Ideally situated and just a short walk across the street to our favorite stretch of sand, we also enjoyed all of the restaurant choices nearby (Duke's, Jimmy Buffet's, Cheesecake Factory, Hula Grill.)
