Stayed here recently for 2 weeks. The rooms are set up beautifully and are really spacious and clean. The kitchen set up is perfect for those nights when you want to stay at home and cook something up yourself. The location is central to everything you need in Waikiki but there are bus stops only footsteps away if you need... More

We booked through Darmic for the Waikiki Banyan and right from the start had outstanding service. The property although older is located at the better end of Waikiki Beach, close to the zoo and only 5 minutes to the beach, with great swimming for the family where there are both waves and sheltered areas for swimming. The Waikiki Trolley and... More

Not high end but very adequate. Good facilities. Close to the beach and the people-watching on the Waikiki strip. Good and friendly service from the managers of the rooms. It's great to have cooking facilities, especially with the exchange rate.

The greeting was excellent,room was perfect,with a very comfortable bed. The one thing which could be improved is the breakfast room,so dull and boring,but down the road there are so many nicer places anyway,so really not a problem.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located just one block from world famous Waikiki Beach, the Waikiki Banyan is a perfect spot for your vacation, be it energetic or relaxing. The complex is made up of over 800 privately owned condos. It can be lively, bustling with holidaymakers going to the beach, playing on the tennis court, which doubles as a basketball court), swimming in the large freshwasher pool, soaking in one of the two Jacuzzis or the sauna, or watching the children having fun playing in the playground. Enjoy quiet evenings on your private lanai sipping a cocktail – or prepare your evening mean on one of the coin operated gas barbeques and dine el fresco. Darmic Waikiki Banyan unserviced condos are one bedroom, one bathroom with a fully equipped kitchen and lanai (balcony). Each sleeps up to 4 people using existing bedding, a 5th person can be accommodated at an extra charge. The condos come with a fully stocked kitchen including flatware, crockery, utensils, pots, pans. You are not disturbed by a daily housekeeper – cleaning and laundry is done on departure and the fee is added to your total quote. All onsite facilities including the recreation deck, mini mart and cafe are available for your use – NO RESORT FEES! Darmic guests are able to have unlimited parking on site for a flat fee of only $10. A Security Deposit of $110 is required to obtain a parking pass then US$100 is refunded on return of the pass to our staff. A lost permit will cost $100 to replace, hence the need for a security deposit. A short 5 minute walk takes you to the warm sands and blue waters of Waikiki Beach. Swimming is safe for children in a lagoon style area at the end of Ohua Ave, then further down the beach are fun waves to play, body surf and boogie board in. Take a short stroll along Kalakaua Ave and see the surfers further out catching the waves. Shops, bars and restaurants are within a few minutes walk of the property, with budgets and styles to suit everyone. Explore the stalls in Dukes Lane, marvel at the high end stores on Kalakaua or simply stroll around Kapiolani Park. For the more energetic, climb Diamond Head for amazing views of Waikiki and surrounds, or venture further afield on a guided tour around the island. Darmic staff are on site to welcome you and upon whom you can call for assistance and knowledge of Waikiki and Hawaii. We pride ourselves on our friendly service to all our guests, as we want you to have a great stay in Hawaii and come back to us for your next vacation.
