This was my third stay at the Royal Hawaiian and I think this is the best hotel to experience a resort-like feeling in Waikiki. It never feels crowded at the Royal Hawaiian. It is like a haven from the crowds of Waikiki. I do enjoy Waikiki, but I like being able to feel like I can get away and the Royal Hawaiian provides that. The service was awesome, the check-in and pool staff always friendly. Yes, the pool is small, but it also not crowded in the pool and we were able to find seats, sometimes with a little patience, but it was better than most resorts I've stayed at. The beach is awesome and can't be beat on Waikiki. The food is expensive, but the shopping center is a short walk away and we often got our lunches from the food court in the mall (great choice and quality with unique local foods.)Of course, sometimes you have to splurge and the food we got was awesome. Our room was spacious and well-appointed.
