Really enjoyed a daily trip to Waikiki Beach. The waiter was clear and inviting very time. Belongings were safe on the beach and there was plenty of room for all.

Waikiki Beach can get crowded but it offers amazing sunsets! I liked going towards the end of the beach towards the zoo. You are able to see the beach (less crowded) and beautiful plants and trees.

Disappointed. Too crowded. Overly Commercial. Hotels crammed. No space. Interesting to see and walk for the experience. View of Diamond Head but otherwise forgettable.

As I walked along Waikiki Beach, I saw waters come in and go out. The water beckoned me to come in. With water rushing in around my ankles and rushing out through my toes, I enjoyed so much that I wanted to go further out...More

Discovered the better part of the beach during a tour. Apparently the Queen used to go to that part! Go left? Just past the volley ball courts - we set up just past the life guard tower. Nice clean, non smoking beach.

No food on the beach, but basically any and all kinds on the main drag just behind the beach anywhere you decide to go!

Outrigger Waikiki Beach Hotel (5 Replies)
Aloha, I was just wondering how this hotel is? Also if you stay there do they let you use the beach chairs and umbrellas for free or do they still charge you?

Most people love this hotel because of its perfect location, and great restaurants/bars. It always gets consistently good TA ratings, and from personal experience I can say it's one of my favs. I don't think you can possibly go wrong with this choice, but then again it depends on what you are looking for... Sorry I can't say for sure about the beach chairs, but I'm pretty sure there's a charge involved.

We arrived in Honolulu on July 7th from Seattle. Check in at the Royal Kuhio was smooth. 1 bedroom unit on the 8th floor was really nice. Shopped for a few groceries and drinks (wine etc.) at the walmart on the way to the condo. Went out for a walk the first night to Waikiki beach and on our way back didn't see any places to eat, until we found a Chilis down the street from our condo. I don't usually like to eat at chains on holidays but it was good. The next day we drove around the island...More
