We arrived at Waikiki today and are planning to stay here for three days. Before we booked this hotel, we were looking for a family-friendly hotel and Tripadvisor led us to this hotel. The hotel itself looks ok and we had a pretty good time until we saw them putting up speakers in the late afternoon. We found out then,... More

I spent a couple of days at this resort to relax after a tour from South to East Africa. I couldn't have been in a better place than at this little piece of paradise. Staff were absolutely amazing and extremely helpful. Seemed like anything you ask for they can make it happen or at least give it a fair try.... More

We stayed a week at the resort which was a nice relaxing environment after an intense safari on the mainland. Great staff; Rafa, Alberto and Flavio are all happy to talk and share their stories, as are the local employees. The rooms are adequate, working fan, air-conditioning, great cleaners and very close to the beach. The resort is clearly respected... More

I just got back from my stay at Waikiki and I had a wonderful time. The resort is located on a stretch of beautiful white sand beach, very relaxing and with stunning views. We arrived on a Friday night just in time for their famous party, very loud and lots of people, we actually enjoyed it a lot and wished... More

Great value, beautiful beach. Restaurant food was fantastic and staff were lovely. Don't go on Friday if you don't like to party until 2am; there are no rooms that one would be able to sleep in and not hear the incredibly loud music. We were happy to dance and stay up but I'm sure others would not be so impressed.... More

Stayed here 3 nights starting on a Friday (which meant they had a party starting about 10pm where they invite people from all over the island and have a local acrobatics performance). One of the better hotels we stayed at and the best views. We arrived during a slow point and ended up in a upgraded room. Sarah and Flavio... More

This resort is just awesome. The accommodation are not luxurious, but they do provide what you need. Beach is fantastic, could not have asked for more. Miles and miles of just white sand. Not much to do in the area. The design of the whole resort is just amazing.
