We stayed at the Waikiki Shore condominiums during March and April. Unit 218 is on second level on the street end of the building. Our unit was like a home away from home! Wide open with lots of space, this "one bedroom" is more like an open studio, with a ceiling to floor room divider that could be closed for... More

Our room was supposed to be a partial ocean view but the only view we had of the ocean was to lean over the balcony rail and look down the side of the building and we could just see a part of the beach. All we could do was laugh! The room was small but clean and we did have... More

Our room was a bedroom \ kitchen combo, and was in excellent shape, very comfortable furnishings. We had cleaning staff drop in every single day to make the bed, and drop off clean towels, dish soap, paper towels etc. We were in room 1204 with front row seats to the most beautiful view of the beach, gorgeous sunsets, and not...

Aloha and thank you for your recommendation. I will let Isaac know that you acknowledged him. Thank you for mentioning all of our amenities - your home away from home - You are correct . Many people mention the convenience of having a washer/dryer and not have to pack extras and pay baggage fees to the airlines. Mahalo More

Stayed a week in March 2014. We were on the 5th floor in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom "condo". The rooms very very spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was a tumble drier and washing machine in one bathroom. The furnishings and beds were very comfortable. Ocean view was only bettered by Santorini. Service was very good with... More

I know there are many mixed reviews about this condo, but to date we have had no reason to complain. Many years ago we booked through Outrigger but after a few mix-ups with our booking decided to go direct with Castle (and in particular Isaac or Leilani at the front desk). We have always found them to be most accommodating... More

We have visited Honolulu many times- but our stay at the Castle Waikiki Shore condo was the worst trip ever. Room 316, (the first room that we were assigned, booked through Travelocity) was dirty, ugly and extremely noisy. The "1 bedroom" apt was really a studio with a sliding partition. Early '90s "decor", kitchen and bath cabinets and fixtures were... More

We enjoyed our stay at Outrigger Shore but really have mixed feelings. The view is outstanding. Having visited Hawaii many times, this view would have to be the best. I have stayed at many hotels and resorts even oceanfront at the Sheraton but the beach, ocean view- directly towards the Friday night Hilton fireworks, wins hands down. But that's where... More

Room 1215 was clean and did have a view of the ocean. All these rooms are time shares, the concern that runs them is four blocks away. The people in the lobby were as nice as they could be BUT, for example, did not have the right wireless code for us. The room itself had a partition which did not... More
