    I was only on the 3rd floor but it was on the beach front end of the building, the view was amazing and surprisingly enough it was very quiet considering how active the beach was with people. I stayed in an Outrigger studio and although the condo was fairly well appointed the blinds need to be replaced with block out curtains as the slats were in a bad way and the sun came pelting in very early each morning. The bed was really comfortable but the frame is falling apart, you could see where an attempt to fix it had been done. It will certainly break very soon. Otherwise loved my stay and it was a bonus to be able to use Outrigger Reef pool and spas next door

    This is an outstanding unit. Beautiful view of the Ocean. Excellent amenities inside and out. Beautiful décor throughout the unit. Great air conditioning for the hot days. We watched multiple firework shows off the balcony and had great early mornings on the beach as we just walked out of the building onto the sand. The property management company was excellent to work with and available for any questions that we had. So many excellent restaurants and nearby points of interests. I would have a recommend this to anybody looking for a top notch centrally located Place to stay with your family. We were very lucky to see a giant green sea turtle on the beach as well as a monk seal

    Great location, right on Waikiki Beach

    we stayed in a studio condo with kitchenette and ocean view on the 12th floor It was a good size for the two of us. Since we knew it was a condo and not a resort, we were fine with the facilities and knew there would be no daily maid service. They provided beach towels and bath towels which we could exchange for fresh ones every day at the front desk. Excellent building security with the key Fobs for the entrances and elevators. No swimming pool but the hotel is right on the beach. Next to fort Derussy. In our welcoming packet, we had a discount coupon for an beach umbrella and two lounge chairs for $25 early bird special for the day, which is a bargain. The yellow umbrella company right outside set up the umbrella and beach chairs where we wanted and we intermittently spent time at our reserved spot during the day. In the same builiding next to the beach is Steak Shack and another fast food place, where we bought lunch every day that we lounged on the beach, because we were too lazy to walk to the restaurants in the area. From this location, we walked East along Waikiki beach to see those sites, hotels and restaurants, and West towards the Hilton to find those restaurants. The bus stop is nearby and we caught the bus to the Arizona Memorial and to the Iolani Palace. We did have a car on two of the days we stayed here to go around the Island. Enterprise Car rental is in the hotel next door, so that was convenient and we arranged for over night parking for $35 a night. Perfect location and accommodations. Wi-fi was strong and excellent. I'd get a one or two bedroom if I had more than two people to keep from feeling crowded, and ask for a room as high up as possible.

    Our 1 BR apartment was lovely, beautifully decorated, with lounge seating for 4 and dining seating for 4 also. Huge comfy bed. Separate spacious bathroom, nice little kitchen area with full size fridge. Super fabulous view from 9th floor! Very effective AC and several ceiling fans. Heaps of lights, but finding the switches a bit of a mission! Staff obliging and helpful. Location perfect, direct access to Waikiki Beach, and so close to Waikiki shops, bars and restaurants.

    After Disney Aulani’s Valet damaged our rental SUV, (and we were treated rudely by two Valet guys,) we were so disenchanted, we left Aulani early and extended our stay here. So glad we did! We were in condo #1406: the views are AMAZING! The ENTIRE west-facing side wall is sliding glass doors, so we had panoramic views of Waikiki beach and sunsets day & night. We sat outside on the lanai to greet the day with Kona coffee as pairs of graceful White Terns flew every morning just for fun, swooping, looping and dancing together in the clear blue skies. On other side of condo, the view out kitchen window above sink is of Diamond Head. Of course both views are mostly of ocean so lots of surfers, boats, outriggers, parasailing, snorklers, etc. The A/C is remote controlled and works very well. No weird smells - no mildew, chemicals, etc., (we’re super-sensitive to odors.) Beautiful full kitchen, fully stocked. Cool tile floors throughout. Loved using the stacked W/D in bathroom - so nice to have clean towels & clothes on demand! Housekeeping picks up your garbage daily & will replenish supplies like TP, paper towels, tissues, etc., but no maid service. We liked the privacy that provided us - made it feel like OUR home. Nice bath/shower combo, too. Matresses were very firm, but several nice fluffy-squishy bed pillows. Sofabed was Ok for my daughter with extra foam pad ontop. The front desk staff were great: Kamakani, Ryan, Rochelle — all so sweet & helpful. Manager, Kenny, is so nice and accommodating. (We had a problem with a male housekeeper but Kenny resolved it quickly and courteously.) Two elevators and rolling luggage caddys make it easy to schlep your bags and groceries. We decided to forego a rental car after Aulani Valet incident, so we walked nextdoor to Outrigger for drinks and dining. Live music and a hula dancer in their open air bar was dreamy. The first floor of Waikiki Shore has stores, shops, snorkle rentals, etc. we got shave ice, sandwiches and water shoes down there. Beach is steps away from the lobby - but yea, it’s Waikiki, so not great snorkeling unless you take boat out to reef, (although I did see a Humuhumunukunukuapua’a!!! They’re shy so that was a big treat!) The bummer was how frequently sirens from police & ambulances pierced our ears — probably 5 a day/night. Not idyllic! But we would stay here again if we ever needed to stay in Waikiki. Oh, nightly rates are very reasonable, plus one-time $200 cleaning fee.
