We have stayed here numerous times. It is convenient to the beach but away from the crowds. Easy access to beach, shops and eateries. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We liked the room layout as it maximizes the space. Enjoyed coffee on the lanai each morning. They provide towels for the beach.

I reviewed this building in 2013 on a previous visit. The same applies today as it did then. This a 30 + storey building made up of condos and apartments. You should not judge the actual building but the condo or apartment you actually stay in. The building itself had not changed much, the swimming pool is not the best... More

We stayed for a week in a 2 bedroom condo on the 35th floor, #3507. The building is centrally located, so very handy for tourists. Shops, buses, trolleys, restaurants, bars, beach, supermarket etc were all within easy walking distance. The living areas are quite compact, & our bathrooms were sadly in need of up-dating. However, overall, we made a good... More

We rented a one bedroom suite for the week. The furniture was clean and beds were comfortable. The pool and laundry were well maintained. The staff was helpful. They include parking on site. We were one block from Waikiki beach. There was a large selection of restaurants from McDonalds to Il Lupino. The design of the condo was good...the decor... More

We stayed here in 2012 and I would happily stay here again. The room was small, but fit all four of us easily and the views from the balcony were amazing. The room was very clean and everything worked aside from the air conditioning was leaking but it didn't bother us. Came with towels, snorkelling equipment and there was also... More

While not on the beach, its location (2 or 3 blocks away) is a central location for all Waikiki Beach activities. The room was small, but efficiently designed. The security in the building was a plus. The only negative was the parking: You had to park on the sixth floor, take an elevator down to the first and then another... More

Great time had as usual when in Hawaii. Met up with Australian an American relatives. My favorite holiday destination. Dukes restaurant is a must for breakfast. The flea market on a Wednesday or Saturday is a must. Pearl Harbor tour of the USS Arizona and USS Missouri is essential. A great perspective of American and Japanese involvement in the Second...

We stayed here whilst on holiday in Honolulu. The "hotel" is essentially a serviced tower block that mainly holds people who live there full time. We used Vacation Internationale who we traded our own timeshare into. The room was ok, a little worn in places but serviceable. The pool was really rubbish, needed work doing to cracked tiles and was... More
