Since we were taking a flight that landed in HNL around 7pm we were a bit worried about what type of room we would be given upon checkin....

We began our American vacation by staying at this amazing hotel in Waikiki. It was one of the few hotels that accommodated our family of five in one room. We were in a tower deluxe room with two queen sized beds that had been newly renovated. They supplied a rollaway free of charge which was bigger than normal and so...

We ate at the Beach bar practically "toes in sand" we had ahi poke nachos $19, and I had ahi poke island style ,yellow fin tuna and sea asparagus, it was divine. The cocktails were reasonable ,large and well presented. The whole atmosphere was up market, great service, you wanted to stay there all day, and we nearly did.

Had a great time here....room was small but view of the Main beach and the Diamond was awesome....couldnt complain at the rate we got. Food very over the top expensive so we ate out mostly. Great chairs at the front for those days where you just need to relax after a rather heavy night on the Blue Lagoons
