Our holiday included a 4 night Christmas booking at Waikiki Parc Hotel, a stay we anticipated with pleasure. Imagine our disappointment at reception to be told there was a problem, and an invitation to meet the duty manager ! Never a good sign. However, regardless of the reason behind the apparent issue, we were offered an alternate stay at the... More

This is our 2nd stay there since my wife loves this hotel. Hotel service is always excellent. Breakfast is pretty good. However, the buffet dinner is really limited, it does fit what the hotel try to represents. As many review stated correctly, beach access is limited. There is a public beach at the front of hotel. But it certainly not... More

Price is rather very expensive but here you get what you pay for. In terms of service, I'd rate it better than Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental hotel. Here you will be treated like a King. Only down side is that the location itself is not the best (small beach)

This hotell is rather nice but after all the ravings I've heard over the years I expected something special. The main disappointment was the outdoor areas, and the bathrooms need an update. The pool could have been bigger for all the crowds, and to be so close to the beach and then not able to access it directly I found... More

This was our second stay in Waikiki and definitely our best accommodation. The hotel is simply stunning in all aspects, with top quality restaurants and friendly helpful staff. Make sure you opt for the buffet breakfast included in a package - the fresh fruit and waffles are the best we've ever eaten, along with everything else you could possibly imagine... More

I just finished six nights here in room 965 and have one more to go before leaving for home. What a great choice. The room is great and over-sized. I paid to have a Diamondhead view and it is worth every dollar. I could spend forever looking out on the terrace.

This is our third time in Hawaii, we stayed at Outrigger the first time, then Hilton Hawaiian Village and now the Halekulani and I have to say this is the best one yet. Check in was seamless, which is great after a long flight. We stayed in a Junior Ocean Suite which was beautiful, nice layout and fantastic view. The... More

Very, very disappointed in our stay at this beach front hotel that is without a beach! Cheap concrete paving surrounding pool is far too hot to walk on while barefoot. The rooms are small, under decorated and without the usual amenities that are expected in a 5 star hotel. No welcome drink or leis of any kind. The smoking area... More

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is excellent. One nice feature is that the food is excellent. Also one of the few places that you could get great food and be casual at the outdoor restaurant by the pool and ocean. When you have kids with you they do not want to get "dressed up" This was part of... More
