Stayed here in March 2010, with my husband, kids 9 & 13, and grandma too. We picked the Sand Villa due to its proximity to the beach and shopping, as well as the price. A bonus for us, was that the hotel included continental breakfast, and had a hot tub. Not many hotels we researched in Waikiki had those 2 ammenities. We found the Sand Villa to be well used, but also clean and very friendly. It was great for us to get rooms that had 3 single beds (no kids fighting about sleeping arrangements) and the toilet/bidet was an interesting addition to the washroom. The bathroom has a dispenser for liquid soap and shampoo in the bathtub/shower area. I brought my own conditioner and was glad I did. Our room had a little fridge, coffeemaker and tv. The coffee is free only the first day, and then you can buy the packets at the front desk if you choose. We knew this in advance and packed some filters and coffee so we could enjoy coffee whenever we wanted. We used the valet parking which was easy and billed to our room at the end of our stay. This cost 15.75 per day. Our car rental was from Dollar, and we got a great rate by using the Entertainment book. Free breakfast was great to get us started in the morning, and saved on our overall budget. Two blocks to the beach was convenient, although the pool and hot tub area of the hotel was very nice and secluded with tropical foliage throughout, making it a nice retreat at the end of a busy day. Shopping and restaurants were only a block away. A nice feature of the hotel was free internet access in the hospitality room, and free use of the room at the end of the day when our flight left late in the evening. It had internet access so we could check our flight status, and a small bath with shower to freshen up. We asked for some pool towels before we checked out so we could enjoy the beach/pool area one last time before our flight. The hotel is located right on the corner of the Ali Wai Canal, and so there is a bit of noise from the traffic, and the emergecy vehicle station (the odd ambulance every day) but still less than if you stay right on Kuhio. Bottom line, we would stay again.
