“Could be so much better!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Initially I wanted to walk out of this place and find somewhere else...but over time it grew on me (or rather I got over myself!)

This place has so much potential, but just small things let it down so badly.
I will start with the bad, but finish with the good (so do keep reading!)

Bad points:
* Main bedroom Air conditioning did not seem to work properly, although did finally get it going cold on about the 7th day, but then you could not change it for fear of it not working again!
* Property was not very clean - dust balls in the main bedroom, grime underneath the dining table, the balcony and furniture were FILTHY, layers of dust and dirt - certainly would not sit out there without a good scrub...
*Cheap 100% polyester sheets which were awful to sleep on especially in the heat - and a couple of towels were ripped
*Curtains needed replacing, they were falling off the rails, hard to open
*Lots of blown lights that needed replacing

Good Points
* Great views - although not of diamond head, and don't expect to see the Hilton fireworks from your room unless you look at the reflection of the Modern Honolulu windows, make sure you go to the beach to watch them.
*Good location - very handy to Alo Moana, and away from the madness of central Waikiki, yet very easy walk
*Good beach, in front of the Hilton - whilst parts of it are rocky, we found the perfect spot next to the Hilton Wharf, perfect for the kids - and not too busy.
(we preferred the beach to the Lagoon - whilst the Lagoon was nice and safe for the kids, we found it a little cool and the sand not as good to build castles!)
*Kitchen was well equipped - other than no sharp knives!!??!!

So a bit of love and attention could see this place become great, even painting it all white would make it seem fresher, get decent sheets, replace the curtains, clean the deck so you can appreciate the location, grease the sliding doors so you can actually get out to the balcony without too much effort, check the lightbulbs and cleanliness between stays, and generally de clutter.

My e mails to the property managers re our issues with the property went unanswered, although did come home to a gift basket the 2nd time I sent an e mail, but with no note so not 100% sure where that came from (but was nice!)

“Great Condo! Fantastic view!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Great experience for our first trip to Hawaii! Staff at Paradise Retreats were always helpful and courteous from the outset of the booking. Condo itself was great, clean and had everything we need for a family of five! The view was to die for! Mahalo Paradise Retreats!
