One of the best ocean view hotels in Waikiki Our family stayed in Ocean Front Club Queen Room for 5 nights in July 2022 Everything during our stay was perfect

The room was spacious, clean and newly renovated The beds were big and comfortable The location are convenient to a lot of restaurants and shopping malls The hotel staff were so kind and always there to provide help to the hotel guests The hotel also had an easy access to the beach and different kinds of water activities The hotel public area were newly renovated in a modern and bright style to make you feel happy and relax At last , I wants to say thanks to Mandy, the housekeeper of 8F, she worked so hard to keep our Room 819 clean and tidy everyday Also, send my thanks to Frank, the manager of V47 club lounge, he was always there every morning to help us set up the breakfast All my family members, my husband, my kids love the hotel so much We will definitely come back in the near future

Theresa Orzech

The staff was amazing very kind Jason at the front desk was amazing hooked us up with activities in the area to do So far our stay has been so so wonderful will definitely come back the rooms are nicely furnished refrigerator lots of room and balcony also attached to the room nice to sit out and hear the bands play

The beach is right around the corner leaving Wednesday and dreading itit’s been a wonderful stay LOVE LOVE LOVE this place If you don’t stay here you are missing out!

Sarah Alvarez

From start to finish, this hotel was perfect for our family vacation Donna, at the front desk, was helpful on more than one occasion and made our stay that much more relaxing and worry free All staff members we spoke to were friendly and attentive

Our room was cleaned daily (we called to ask for it) We stayed in a one bedroom suite, and both the bed and the pull out sofa bed were comfortable Rooms were cool with air conditioning that ran without any issues The fridge and microwave were very handy with two kids – so we were able to keep snacks and beverages in our room for a longer period of time The pool was relaxing, and right next to the bar ~ which made for a relaxing time for the adults and fun time for the kiddos If you walk through the hotel you end up straight on the beach! Overall, we are so pleased we stayed here, and will definitely book again!

Mercy Preston

This hotel has some pretty mixed reviews but I would definitely give it 5 stars It’s by far the best option in its price point especially considering how close it is to the beachThe rooms were small but comfortable with some nice updates and a great layout

If you are travelling alone or with just one other person, the size of the rooms is completely fine If you can, opt for rooms with views of diamond head as those views truly are unbeatableGreat restaurant and bar as well as a fantastic lobby with several shops, a dedicated employee to help you book tours, and a really good coffee shopLast but not least, it’s right across the street from the zoo For me, this is a HUGE selling point but I get that it’s not for everyoneAll in all, great stay

Lindsay Huber

Had a wonderful time staying here! The view of diamond is absolutely amazing The hotel is really pretty and great location Loved the large windows in my room

I did the yoga, which was very lovelyThe room was missing some basics There was no full length mirror, microwave, or coffee maker The restaurant and coffee shop were good, but very expensive

Tracey Badgley

Very nice hotel but it was totally different from the pictures on the website The ocean view was very difficult as you had to look up and around the wall and just above the trees to get a peek at the ocean The view of the volcano was beautiful

Most people want a cup of coffee in the morning but hard to do from the convenience of your room when there’s no coffee pot of any sort in room, no microwave either Great location and meal options available but very pricey, $30 for a burger

Kelsey Regulski

This review is based solely on the host we had, Tomomi She was incredibly kind and although our stay did not work out as planned, she was quick to accommodate a refund and was very polite about the entire situation This bed and breakfast has a ton of potential, and just needs a bit more love in regards to some moths and mold in the bathroom

Unfortunately with me being very pregnant, we ended up not staying due to those reasons Again though, we can not say enough kind things about the family that resides here and Tomomi who assists with guests All were so nice and understanding The landscaping was also incredible on property

Xadra Rettew

This bed & breakfast is in a wonderful location, I found this gem browsing orbitz with one room left available It was convenient because I paid in advance so check in with Tomomi was a breeze It is a very intimate quiet setting, it seemed like the owner& family lives there

They were all super polite! I managed to get a lot of great pics around the property that Tomomi helped me with after she served me a delicious customized breakfast Would recommend this to someone looking for a little escape to an exotic classical Hawaiian getaway ( very )close to town


First let me start off what a beautiful place this is It is a hidden jem 1 of a kind inn

Beginning with the front entrance and continuing thru out the house, wonderful artifacts, paintings, figurines, statues, and fun things that catch your eyeThen there is this garden, probably the best garden I have ever seen, so many things to look at and adore Gives you plenty of shade thru outAlso there is a salt water pool to enjoy in the middle of it allI can not say enough about the family that run it The owner was a great guy to talk to, alot of great info of the place and the island The woman who seems to run it Tomomi, she was the best, caring, host you can imagine, she took care of your check in, and made you comfortable to stayShe even cooked the breakfast the next morning Which was very very goodThe family makes you feel like your home!!! Will Definitely be backThank you guys for a great stay All the way from Chicago

We stayed on the 7th floor with an ocean view room – decent view of the ocean, but you’re also looking straight down at neighboring hotel’s pool and roof top bar Hotel is situated right off of the main road, but was very noisy at night We had to sleep with ear plugs in and a sound machine going

I didn’t catch his name, but the young guy who checked us in and took care of us the majority of our stay was so nice and accommodating He even brought a hair dryer up to our room after we discovered our room was missing one He was awesome – thank you! The hotel parking is tight and limited and at an additional cost of $35/night Room was clean and bed was comfortable Quick access to main road and beach by foot Likely wouldn’t return here because we prefer somewhere more quiet and secluded than being down in the hub of it all

Alanieta Waqanicagica

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Waikiki – this is the best place! Not too pricey, hotels are clean, beach is a mere 2 min walk away The bus stop is also 2 min walk away, an ABC convenience stop is by it, if you’re heading out for Luau, tour etc the pickup spot is close tooThey don’t offer breakfast but many breakfast spots are close, rooms are serviced daily and the hotel staff are very friendly

If you can get a room with a balcony – it’s got some of the best views!

james olver

You couldn’t ask for a better location, great view, extremely convenient to the beach and tons of great food Staff was very friendly at all times and they offer a lot of extras for beach fun It was a little wonky finding with a car at first, but once we got the hang of it, easy peasy

Scout ahead on street view and you’ll avoid a lap around the block

The location here is nice Close to the beach and you have a parking spot The room is outdated but fit all our needs

Would’ve really enjoyed our time if there weren’t ants everywhere Which, maybe is to be expected on an Island but we had trail mix out for 2 minutes and literally ants everywhere in it and also found a few ants in the bed I hate ants so this was not cool for us Ants in the sink On the wall in the bath tub Everywhere Not cool!!

Alexi Campbell

My wife & I stayed at Janice’s wonderful B&B to celebrate the beginning of our honeymoon, and the entire experience at Hawai’i’s Hidden Hideaway was absolutely fantastic! Tucked away in a gorgeous neighborhood in Kailua, the place is as charming in person as we hoped Upon our arrival, the room was clean, cozy, and stocked full with everything you might need for a beach escape We had the pleasure of meeting our lovely host Janice one morning, where we got a little history of the place as well as some local recommendations

I would HIGHLY recommend staying here, 5 star, 10/10, would love to come back!

Melora Leiser

Hawaii Hideaway B&B is the perfect location, comfortable, clean and very accommodating! I stayed for two weeks and loved every minute! Janice has thought of every little thing you may need – from many kitchen items, to extra food, to extra towels, cooler, beach bag, beach mats and even umbrellas for those occasional rain showers Nestled back in a quiet neighborhood, minutes walk or bike ride to the beach and carport parking – the location is great! I rented a bike (The Bike Shop recommended by Janice) and rode all over Kailua – mostly to the beach Nearby Lanikai and Kailua beach are often rated the best because they are beautiful, full of activity but also quiet spots and great for sunrises, long walks and swimming

The room is very clean, with a small table, comfortable bed and great bathroom suite The shower and all the provided toiletries worked great and were much appreciated Janice provides fresh fruit, juices, water, pastries and more upon arrival The kitchenette is well stocked with a mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot, hot plate, dishes, silverware, pots, pans and many kitchen utensils The outdoor spaces were great too – I spent many mornings on my private lanai enjoying the beautiful tropical plants, birds and breezes The room has A/C and plenty of fans – I felt very comfortable and secure I highly recommend the Hawaii Hideaway Bed and Breakfast and hope to come back soon!

Lindsay Snyder

Our stay was overall good The positives are what others mention – close to the beach, owners left us alone but were there if needed, and the room was a decent sizeThe negatives were the floor was filthy when we arrived

It was gritty with sand and had hairs all over the place The bathroom had endless black hairs on the floor, the shower, and the sink We understand it’s a beach town, but we immediately went to Target to buy a Swiffer and take it into our own hands 2 completely black Swiffer pads later, we felt at-easeThe blanket had a very small, but noteworthy bloodstain on it that made us uneasy after the condition of the floor There was a spoon left in the cleaning rack There were the other person’s welcome papers left under the tableOverall, it was a nice stay, but in-between people, a better cleaning is absolutely necessary To be fair, we did not tell the owners our thoughts on the cleanliness of the place – we took it into our own hands That was a personal decision on our end

Rupert Jiles

Scheduling was easy Check in very simpleKitchen is very functional with pots and pans, dinnerware, microwave, fridge, toaster oven, electric skillet, coffee pot and a tea kettle and a 2 burner stove

Stocked with basic salt/pepper olive oil coffee and tea Cinnimon bread is outrageousQueen bed is very comfortable I did not try the others 4 in total i believe The shower is huge and opens to another private gardenPlenty of outlets and tables to set up office like i doEasy access to the best beach, restaurants and shopping Pricing is very reasonable for the beauty and comforts of this establishent Thanks again Sheffields

james chino

I called asking for info and she hung up on meAfter spending an hour trying to get to a beach with waves, I decided that maybe a local surf shop or hotel owner might be willing to help I felt awkward calling but my family was waiting on me for an answer

I looked for a surf shop and couldn’t find anythingI took a gamble and called this local business The owner was abrupt and rude She told me to call a surf shop and hung up on me Guess what? I’m not paying the surf shop, either You’re frustrated with me for calling you when I’m not bringing you business, so you told me to do the same to somebody else

JC Holcomb

The rooms are so so They don’t do room cleaning unless you pay for it, however you can exchange towels and such at the front desk The staff is great and very helpful

The location is at the far end of Waikiki, really good for families (proximity to zoo/beach/aquarium) If you’re looking for night life, most of it will be a half mile walk, doable but there are better places to stay for that The assigned parking is nice if want to pay for it

German R (Elegate)

To Roxy thank you very much for your hospitality and for going above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable one The location is great I liked it The prices are pretty competitive and parking is not too bad

Word of advice if you have a rental please call the hotel in advance so they can reserve a spot for you On the second floor they have a bar, Hula’s Bar & Lei Stand, which does gives a nice view of the Diamond Head The next time I go to Honolulu the Waikiki Grand Hotel is most definitely the first spot I’ll check out

Ying Li

My conclusion on this place: 1) You got what you paid for 2) I would not recommend this place 3) Location was the only good thing

Reasoning: 1) the whole shower set broke, cant shower at all Front desk personnel was not willing to change room (allow me to go to another room to shower) until the Wi-Fi was not working in that room 2) front desk personnel seems busy all the time, no patient with attitude Made a big deal of getting a blanket and bringing back a blanket

coffee maker did not have pods for first breakfast Machine broke for last two breakfasts We had booked both units months ago for our family, one was double booked so we were very disappointed to stay apart the first two nights

We were given what I would consider a small discount for the inconvenience Everyone gets a papaya, that was delicious The rooms are clean and adequate There is plenty of beach equipment which we used

Wasy Wasdyke

We had another great stay at The PP Bob and Jeanette are wonderful and made our trip a fulfilling experience We actually spent more time with them this year because we didn’t do a lot of tourist things

We used the pool and enjoyed the mountain views The room was very clean and airy and Kailua Beach is minutes away It really was a restful vacationSee you next year!

Rachell Amaoui

My husband was working on MCBH for a month so i flew out for a week We spent the week here at this beautiful B&B Bob and Jeanette are very pleasant hosts and made us feel right at Home

The room was very clean and the water pressure was excellent for those after beach showers! We enjoyed the pool and also the Lanai The back yard is peaceful and great for enjoying the sun and reading a pool before taking a dip in the pool Next time we come to Hawaii we will definitely be back to Papaya Paradise 😊

Check in was easy The hotel is CLEAN No foul smells, it actually has a fresh smell to it

Beds are comfortable Housekeeping daily was greatly appreciated The only thing is parking You may or may not get a spot Other than that I’m enjoying my stay Side note even though parking isn’t the best, the location of the hotel is walking distance to food the beach and entertainment I’d definitely stay here again

fritz schacht

The single room I had was very small Not enough room for me to open up my luggage comfortably Pulling my luggage over the bed to get to the other side

My room was very clean I only needed to stay overnight, so I managed My colleague’s fortunately had larger rooms I definitely would stay at the Ala Moana hotel againI recommend the Steak restaurant on the 32 floor Fine dinning , great service, fabulous food

Tina Jentilet

We had a lovely conference Facilities were good, but I was freezing Check out the hand made origami peacock centerpiece

The vegetarian lunch was superb My room was good, but not much of a view I didn’t expect to have someone come in to make my bed or empty the trash (not usual protocol since COVID) so unfortunately some pens and business cards got thrown out It was nice to come back after a long day to have a nicely made bed

Sam Wingerter

Had high expectations for this resort given its prime real estate Checking in late, we expected an easy & smooth check-in, but ended up waiting way too long – could have been greeted with waters or a complimentary drink to ease the wait The guest experience is lacking given the $ paid – just didn’t feel the warm friendly vibe you would expect

The rooms are dated, but spacious – AC works well Nearby food outlets on the resort are average quality – nothing special (nice part is there is an ABC store on the resort) You have to book your housekeeping (ended up cleaning the room) plus can only hold pool towels for 24 hours or return them the next day Also, make sure you check which building you are staying in as they play live music until 11pm on some nights and found it hard to sleep Pools are good, but busy All and all, would try booking somewhere else next time unless this resort starts to prioritize guest experience management

Anthony Chan

Beautiful location with direct beach access This conglomerate of Hilton hotels bunched together creating a little shopping haven What is unique with this Hilton location is the fire work every Friday night at 8pm

An experience you do not want to miss The fire work is beautiful and proximal that it feels 3DBali at the waterfront for breakfast: the waitress I have was attentive, personable and made great suggestions Although it looks real pricey, the portion size is decent and can be sharedwhat make up for the price is the view of the ocean and the food being served immediately piping hotThe only cons are the front desk could have smile more and be friendlier Being a diamond member and could not get any member benefits when subscribed to the Hilton Grand vacation package was a total disappointment Not only you can’t check in early, we had to wait 3 hours to be notified that our room was ready Then wait another hour at the mail and key line to find out that our room was not ready That was a little perturbing

jim nava

The General Manager (Jeff) + all staff of the hotel were amazing, helpful and accommodating This helped my family and I to actually relax and enjoy every moment we were there I am so grateful for the hospitality and professionalism from initially booking to departure

Very clean resort with very high standardsExcellent location Accessible stores and food options within the village + a 15 minute walk to the main strip regardless, for shopping and restaurants Parking although expensive, is in a secured garage steps away from each of the buildings in the resortBeach front, lagoon and landscaping were well maintained and beautifulMandara Spa on site was helpful to rectify an issue and the massage was excellent

James Coleman

Not too bad overall, but a little overrated The price is what you’d expect from a military-affiliate hotel, so the higher rank you are the less value you’re getting The location isn’t bad, but a little outside the main area (this may be considered an advantage)

Parking is $16 is you’re staying there, which is great for the area The big hit on this hotel for me, along with the rough towels in the bathroom, was the pool There’s an adult only pool, a main pool with an infinity pool above it, and a splash area for children The splash area is fun, but the main pool had so many rules it was hard to enjoy anything:- the entire pool is cleared at the top of the hour for “safety and training,” whatever that entails (it wasn’t obvious)- a child must know how to swim to swim in the pool without a life jacket (which they will provide) I understand that’s extremely safe, but then what’s the point of the three lifeguards and the other rule to be within arm’s reach of your young child all the time? Clearly this pool is not a good opportunity to have a child practice swimmingOverall, I’m glad I stayed a night, and I haven’t discounted the Hale Koa entirely, but I will definitely do a thorough cost comparison with hotels in the area before staying again

Jessica Morel

Friendly staff, very clean hotel and Omgosh the beds are comfortable as ever! There is a Starbucks in the main lobby which is convenient when you want to wake up early and just lounge in the lobby area Downstairs there is the Exchange for military and hotel guest Pathway downstairs leads you to the pools and beaches

Food was good I had a cheeseburger and fries for lunch which was delicious Ocean view rooms you will not regret if you purchase it was amazing! Free parking and walking distance from the strip I definitely would book here again!

Tammy Folks

Hale Koa is a haven in the craziness of Waikiki The grounds are stunning The adult pool was so relaxing and quiet, with shaded areas which is a must for me

Liked the Barefoot Bar as there was a lot of room to spread out, and had good drinks for a reasonable price Our room was very nice, we were on the end so had an extra large window which made it feel more spacious Our friends stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian village which was beautiful, but it was way too crowded for us We enjoyed the serene quiet of Hale Koa! The only thing I would change is for restaurants to have more gluten free options as I have celiac disease The breakfast buffet was fine, but the snack bars really had very little or nothing I could eat This hotel is a definite perk for those who serve/retire from the military We felt blessed to have the opportunity to stay there!

My husband & I celebrated our honeymoon at Paradise Bay The views are astounding! Treat yourself to a mountain view suite! You won’t regret it! The views driving up to the main roads are also amazing! My husband was in love! Paradise Bay provides the quaint & relaxing feeling Yes, there are roosters but not heard all of the time

The grills, pool, docks are all amazing! The boat excursion with Brian & Captain Rollin a huge plus & amazing experience! No, they’re not serving breakfast or any dining but everything is within a 10 minute drive & they provide an excellent list of dining suggestions! Minor issues (pillowcase had stains, only 1 side of toaster working) but the views & your experience make those minor issues disappear! Would definitely come back one the breakfast & dining re-open (hopefully very soon!)

Overall the resort is nice It’s clean and they have some great services The staff were all very friendly

My only complaint is that the walls are very thin You can hear your neighbors dishes, conversations, etc as if they were right in your room If they could fix that by adding insulation or removing doors that connect rooms, then they would be fantastic

The location was wonderful and staff were very friendly Rooms are basic (they’ve got a few TV subscription channels that you can log into if you have your own account) and walls are very thin My only issue was that they are still charging a $19 per night Resort Fee (half off) even though they aren’t serving breakfast and they additionally charge $15 per night for parking

The Resort Fee covers kayak rentals, the fitness room, and pool towels, but if you’re not using those things, it would be nice if it at least covered parking on their property This added up to an additional $200 for 5 nights I’d prefer that they just charge for amenities à la carte Otherwise, we had a great stay

I had an extremely bad experience at this hotel I checked in late at night and left early morning around 6am The entire night I was smelling mold and mildew in the room and kept coughing

To protect my health, I checked out early and left the hotel The hallways smells of mold and mildew too I had no hope of moving to another room because the entire hotel was nasty I gave them a feedback and I have not heard back from them yet I would great appreciate a response from management regarding my concerns Please improve the environment for the health and safety of your customers It’s 2022 and people don’t have time and money to spend after such hotels It’s easy to get better customer service, good experience, great hotel room for the same kind of price somewhere else and the competition is huge out there Lastly, the bathrooms were literally from 1960s I really hoped I had a better experience, but I it sucked to be there for a night in Hawaii staying at a hotel like this

Had a pleasant stay on my trip here As others have stated, you should keep your expectations realistic with this hotel For the price however I was very pleased to have a nice clean room in a great location

Parking can be difficult since it is small but if you are smart you should be able to snag one I suggest not staying out too late (6pm or so) with your car or you might need to go to the garage I did not have any trouble at all and the staff were very courteous and polite They did provide house keeping as well

The only thing I hated was that they wanted to see covid vaccination cards – totally not needed any more mid March 22Besides that all was perfect Reasonable price for Waikiki – nice room and extremely clean and comfortable- great location- parking -…

Very happy I stayed here and not in a resort hotel This was just so much more in sync with what we find important while traveling
