A well located hotel which is also occupied by owners. We were fortunate enough to rent Unit 801 which is just high enough to be able to obtain great water views to the left and a peep of Waikiki to the right from the master bedroom. Like jaylance67 who made recent comments, we were amazed that there was a solid... More

My family and I have spent the last three days in Unit #105 at Diamond Head Beach Hotel, which is located in a very desirable strip of land between Diamond Head and central Waikiki. The location could not be any better. The hotel is located directly on the water and within a short walk from Kaimanu Beach - a small... More

We stayed in Unit #801 and loved the lanai and views of the Pacific and surfers and the cool breezes (though we cannot believe the ocean view is obstructed by the living room wall!). However, the rental company did not give us instructions on how to enter the complex on a Sunday with the intercom not working and no one... More

I am torn between one and two stars. When we arrived I was so disappointed I cried! I had not booked this hotel or done any research, it was booked as a surprise by my husband. The only reason he booked at this 'hotel' is because we were vacationing with friends who had already made a reservation here. Having read... More

We have been staying at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel for the month of Feb. for the last 8 years. We have stayed in the same condo for the last 6 years. Suite 1003 is on the 10th floor and has fantastic views in every direction. Many of the same people go for the month of Feb. every year so... More

Our last visit to Oahu was short and sweet…as was our stay at the lovely Diamond Head Beach Hotel. We got to stay in the Pikake Suite, and the 12th floor ocean view from the balcony was simply amazing! The room was clean and the staff there were very friendly and helpful, not to mention a great price too :)... More

I recently completed my tour with the military in Hawaii and have been renting a condo at the Diamond Beach Hotel from Ohana Beach Rentals Hawaii while we look for a permanent residence. This condo hotel has been perfect for our needs and in a great location. There is swimming, surfing and snorkeling right out front. There is also a... More

Just returned from a week at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, a hotel/condo building on the "Gold Coast" of Oahu. We've read many of the other reviews and think that some people haven't understood what they signed up for. This is NOT a "Hotel" in the normal sense of the term. It is a condo that has many rental units... More

This place is your worst nightmare. Trash left in the rooms; food stuffs, beds unmade. The staff make you feel as though you are responsible. When I asked to have the room cleaned I was told that she was getting ready to go home for the day but she would stay and "help me" if I wanted her to. Eventually... More

This is my first time staying at this hotel and let me tell you, this place is a Hidden Gem! I was referred by one of my friends that is a repeat at this hotel and thank goodness I listened( based on the last poor review). I stayed on the 12th floor in a beautiful unit facing the ocean directly(loving... More
