I have stayed at the Waikiki Sand Villa many times over the past 10 years, and I am writing at the end of another wonderful 12-day stay. The hotel is located right in the heart of Waikiki, convenient to all of the shops and restaurants, as well as a full-service grocery store right across the street. The location is a... More

We were randomly "assigned" by our travel agent in a combination of hotel+air ticket to this hotel and found it very convenient indeed. The hotel is perfectly located: Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, only 2 blocks, 5 minutes walk, from the main street along the beach of Waikiki, and from the center of everything (and only one bloc away from...

Nice friendly staff, average rooms, fairly clean. Good price for Waikiki but basic hotel. Hotel is on the Ala Wai which is a busy street. You can park on the Ala Wai for free, but you must move your car on Mondays and Fridays between 8:30 am and 11:30 am. The city is very aggressive about towing.

Nice hotel with good location on Ala Wai Blvd. The hotel caters to the Japanese, and that is a good thing because it is fairly quiet. The free WiFi is nice and it has a internet cafe on the second floor as well. The best aspect of this hotel is the friendly sports bar in the lobby. Good place to... More

Found the hotel to be clean. No issues at all. Quite close to the beach. Hotel staff were helpful n polite. Check in occurred without any issues. Hotel aircon working fine. We were given room on level 10 so view was great too.

I booked the Sand Villa mainly because it offered smoking rooms (for my travel companion) as well as the cost. Having been to Hawaii previously (first time stayed at Outrigger Reef, second time Mirimar) I was a little skeptic with the location and had some concerns about why the Sand Villa was so much cheaper than other hotels. The Sand... More

We were staying in Waikiki for several days and needed a good value hotel. We found Waikiki Sand Villa through reviews. The hotel is very basic, but a good overall value. The rooms were clean and adaquate in size. They did mix up reservations and I had to deal with management to show I did have reservations when their computer... More
