On my 5th visit to Waikiki, I opted for the Royal Grove. My Hawaiian friends suggested I stay there. I had an efficiency apartment on the first floor near the pool. Yes, the pool is small, but wonderful! The ocean is 2 blocks away. My apartment had 2 double beds, a full sized 'fridge, a microwave, full stove with oven and a nice lanai with lines to dry laundry. The staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent location, near grocery, sundries, banks, restaurants. I stayed for 14 nights and it cost $540!!
