I noticed there are reviews that give quite a different perspective of Papaya Paradise. It is because the owners Bob and Jeanette are senior people and in this way they have prepared their B&B for people who want peace and quiet. I am specifically looking for a place for peace and quiet and got exactly what I am looking for. Yes I am looking for fun travel and beach but when I'm sleeping and resting it's a different story. I would be very annoyed by noisy neighbors and I get easily disturbed when I sleep. Maybe for other travelers who prefer a noisy place where they can be free to do whatever they want without consideration for other people, and other people without consideration of them, should not stay here. In regards to the room it is quite small but this is a "bed and breakfast" and not a hotel so it is expected not to have many room options. For the classification of B&B I'd say this place is great, but for a hotel it is not. The location is great as it only takes 10 minutes walk to Kailua beach and a bit more to Lanikai (which is adjacent). Bob regularly checks on us if we are having a good stay or not...we are not accustomed to regular checks but this is okay because in all 5-star hotels we went the waiters do the same thing (I just had a few bites and here they are asking me again if the food is great) and Bob is just making sure if we are having a good time. Overall I like this place because because it is for people who wants peace and quiet.
