We, an older couple, spent 4 days at Waikiki and mainly had a good time, with some frustrations. Positives: It is a beautiful place, with white sand and a swimmable beach. Great for kitesurfing, and lounging. The on-site tour guides are semi-independent but reliable and price-competitive. The facilities are very nice; great landscaping, comfortable restaurants, and nice, modern rooms. We... More

“None of the rooms face the water; those a little closer and a bit larger command about a 15% premium, but all are nice.”

“We stayed in the "Beachfront / Sea view" room - its not our definition of such as room so make sure you have the right expectations before arriving - then the rest of your holiday and stay will be perfect”

“The "Deluxe Room with Sea view" are gorgeous, very spacious and come with aircon and a fan, would definitely recommend splashing out a little bit extra if you can, although I didn't see what the "Standard Rooms" are like.”
