We are a family-owned and family-run hidden gem tucked away on a quiet side street in the heart of Waikiki, next to the popular running path along the Ala Wai Canal, with views of the gorgeous Koolau Mountains and the Waikiki skyline.

Your private paradise is close to all of Waikiki’s major attractions, including the gentle surfing waves of Waikiki Beach, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head State Monument, the Ala Wai Golf Course, and the Waikiki Aquarium. You’ll be just steps from Waikiki’s unparalleled shopping, dining, surfing, historical landmarks, gardens and parks.

Our property consists of two buildings – our main tower and a 2-story building that holds 10 beautiful studio suites with kitchenettes. The two buildings share a sun-filled, easy-going pool area with a 70-foot swimming pool and outdoor Jacuzzi.

Yes. The staff are amazing. Very helpful. This was our 2nd trip to this hotel (2/16/21 to 2/24/21). We love the location next to the canal and yet still only a short walk to the beach. Never an issue with our stay and the central air conditioning is a huge bonus. We stayed for 8 nights.

My story...... I had my phone that i was using for my covid test to show. I left on the counter when i went up to my room by accident. It went missing after i came back down to get it. The desk guy said he would look at the camera but nothing happened. Next day the new crew promised to look at the security footage again. Then a miracle happened... Head of security identified those that took my phone and to what room they were visiting. He got ahold of them and asked them to bring the phone back and I GOT MY phone back!! i thought it was goner for sure and i really can't say enough for Glenn doing this.. thus the 5 star review. There was another worrisome thing about this hotel but.... i won't mention that because of the hotel recovering my phone.... which i needed badly for the rest of my vacation.

We loved staying at the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel. They were beyond accommodating. They gave us free parking on our first night and $15 parking for the following 4 days. They gave us an incredible bag full of island made goodies, it had to be worth at least $75 in very nice products (I think it was a promotional thing to help neighboring businesses in the midst of the pandemic). The pool and hot tub were wonderful! Same with our hotel room. It was comfortable, clean and cool. And we had a room that allowed us to watch the sunrise over the mountains in the morning! The location is outstanding! It’s close enough to downtown that we could walk to the beach or shops in about 3 minutes! However it’s about a block away from the real noisy street, so there is plenty of peace and quiet. If you don’t want to pay for your parking, there is free parking across the street along the canal, however, it’s usually pretty packed.

We had an amazing stay at Waikiki Sand Villa. People running this business are incredible. Unbelievable price. We stayed for 7 days and it was awesome. We were on the top floor facing the mountains and canal. Got to see the sunrise each morning because we were working 4am- about 12pm each day. We both were utilizing internet for our jobs and never skipped a beat. View really was such a treat. Literally a couple blocks off the beach. Can get anywhere from here. Tons of food & shopping within steps. ABC is in the corner if you need anything. They have a car rental business at location if needed. Hot tub was wonderful. 7 min from the local Walmart. My husband ran along the canal. Wow wow wow. Hotel provides shampoo and body wash. Great tub, really hot water. There’s a med/spa clinic onsite, didn’t get to utilize this time but hope to in the future. Would/will highly recommend to anyone and everyone in a moment. Mediterranean food & wine bar onsite. We ended up parking on site, so convenient and reasonable. Loved this place, will return. Pictures posted are our view, room 1202. Overall 10/10.

I stayed here eight nights. Good price, clean room, friendly, helpfull staff, close enough to the beach. Onsite car rental at a fair price was handy. Would stay there again. I spent a lot of time at the beach, at Pearl harbor and beches other than wakaki.
