We had a standard room. The room was spacious enough with just the two of us. A bed, little table with 2 chairs, kitchen was stocked with everything (except food of course). The pool wasn't very big, but clean. The beach is about 2 blocks (parks) away. The staff was always smiling at us on our way in or out.... More

Excellent stay, roomy accommodation, everything provided including microwave, plates, cups, toaster, coffee maker had to ask for an electric kettle but was not a problem. Free wifi access. Nothing was a problem for the staff they were more than happy to provide what was needed including day packages to attractions. Hotel and staff were so nice it was sad to... More

The hotel was beautiful but a bit far from the beach. However, the most disappointing part was no where to eat in hotel and the lobby stunk of stale water. The staff were friendly and there were basic amenities on the premises but nothing to brag about. The staff at the sales desk are nice but be weary of the... More

We booked through timeshare and when I looked at the map, seeing it was a few blocks back from the beach and a few blocks out of the action, I was disappointed. However the reality is a short walk mostly through parkland behind Fort de Rusy to get to the beach and it was relaxing and chilled to be out... More

We stayed in a owner occupied apartment. Our apartment faced Diamond Head so we had a lovely breeze. We stayed here four years ago and really loved the hotel and wanted to return so opted for an owner apartment through VRBO. The staff are exceptional. The same friendly smiling guys are still there. Yes there is no daily maid service.... More

Aloha and thank you for your review. You pointed out a couple facts but, unfortunately we have little control over; as for the lack of kitchen facilities, due to the size of our units it was decided not to have kitchen installed by the owner. We do however have microwaves for limited cooking and heating. Also, we agree with you... More

I stayed at the Royal garden last week for 7 days, and it was great. We weren't in the room much during the day/night, but when we were, it was perfect for our needs. Huge king size bed, nice bathroom, closet, and kitchenette with sink, microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot and all dishes and silverware. Also a small table and... More

Had my doubts about this property as it is a time share-rental, but I was very pleased. Once I got past not having maid service everyday (not a real issue for me, as I am a neat/clean freak and did not mess up the room anyway), I began to enjoy this property. It is in a quiet neighborhood, but within... More

This property is a timeshare rather than a true hotel so it is lacking things like daily housekeeping, a restaurant, etc. But once you get past that the rooms are excellent and staff exceptional. Not right o nthe beach but a great location, walking distance to much of the big tourist stuff. Just be sure to steer clear of the... More

I want to say how wonderful, friendly and professional the staff was at Royal Garden, Waikiki! From the moment I got there (May 13-May 19, 2014), there was a warm and friendly greeting at the front desk. It was late at night, my first time in Hawaii, and I am so happy I chose this hotel. The service is superb!!!... More
