One bedroom with foldout in the lounge with full kitchen facilities and shower/bath. Made life so easy and the bed was better than my own! Right in the heart of Waikiki only 2 blocks to everything and perfect on the 11th floor to block out most of the street noise. Is it pretty, maybe not as pretty as some, is...

We stayed here for 11 nights and was great. It is very hard to find accommodation for a young family of 6. This was over our budget but did provide plenty of room. The apartment is huge. 2 large lanai and super amazing views (one of the ocean the other the city and mountains), large lounge\dining room, massive main bedroom...

We stayed in room 3207 in September 2016, and I was very disappointed. The room was advertised as a luxury apartment, but it was old and needed a makeover. The stove top only had one element that worked, the tap was loose, there were marks all over the walls, the airconditoners were that noisy that you couldn't leave them on...

This unit is an old beat up condo. It looks ok online but it has been so neglected. The property manager Ali'i Beach Rentals charges you $129.00 for a cleaning fee and the place was filthy. I took pictures. We didn't even have drinking glasses. I will say they brought us glasses the third day. I don't believe the place...

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...

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...

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 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.
