We stayed for a few days. It was clean with a fully stocked kitchen. It was a short walk to the beach. It was an exceptional value. There was free parking in the parking garage for one vehicle. If we go back to Hawaii, I would stay there again.

My family stayed this suite for a week last summer. Staff from Ali'i Beach Rentals gave us all instruction. This place is clean, quite and close to beach (only one block away), one free parking spot plus good price. Only problem is the bathtub's faucet was not working properly. Overall, I would recommend others to stay.

Everything you could want for a couples 'get-a-way'. Cosy and comfortable and with everything included within the unit. A few maintenance issues and I think that I left it cleaner than when we checked in but overall very good. Within walking distance to beach, shops - what more could you want! (Oh - just one thing - the receptionist didn't... More

Royal Kuhio provides everything a vacationer in Hawaii really needs without the hassle of a regular hotel. We stayed there through Vacations Internationale and we enjoyed the comforts of a fully equipped kitchen, a parking lot within the building and everything else. Royal Kuhio is right in the middle of Waikiki, within an easy walking distance to the major beaches,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed having a full kitchen during your stay. It is a nice feature of timeshare resorts vs a hotel where you’re limited to eating out for all your meals. We hope you will come back to Royal Kuhio soon. More

Overall, this place is just OK. We were a bit disappointed as we exchanged a one bedroom unit at our high end home resort in Grand Cayman for this, and it did not come close. The accommodations are far from comparable. We exchanged a resort, with full amenities, pools, restaurants, beach chairs, etc., essentially for a studio in an apartment... More

We spent 8 nights at the Royal Kuhio through Vacations Internationale. Our unit was very clean and updated. It had everything we wanted (from a well equipped kitchen to tennis courts, pool, games room, laundry and secured parking). VI staff were very helpful as was the tour conceige they recommended. The lobby had friendly 24 hour security. We felt sad... More

Other reviewers have commented on the lobby and they are right, but our room (1111) had recently been completely redone. New appliances, new linens and even new furniture, and carpeting. The staff were very accommodating. The pool area is under-used and includes a sauna, lots of chairs, and a pool table.The convenience of the location cannot be over sold. You... More

After reading the reviews I was a little worried about staying at the Royal Kuhio and then once we saw the room it was fine. the rooms were super clean, clean sheets, no bugs and clean bathroom but needs a little interior updating, the lobby was a stinky but all we did was walk through to get outside, the location...

We just got done with a week long stay at Royal Kuhio through Vacation Internationale. It was nice. After reading the reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. There were no bugs and it was clean. The pool wasn't anything to get excited about and the keycards for getting through the lobby and into the parking garage took some getting used to... More

The location of the Royal Kuhio is A++; you are within 2 blocks of the beach, great restaurants & shopping. Unfortunately the unit itself was very dated; shag carpet, dark & tacky kitchen cupboards ,noisy window air conditioners, lumpy mattresses, useless bath tub. From reading other reviews, all the units in this resort sound the same but if you don't... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and giving us the opportunity to clarify a few things to those who are reading. There is more than one company that own units at the Royal Kuhio. Each company is responsible for the renovation and up keep of their units. The timeshare units are owned by Vacation Internationale and... More
