Recent Waikiki property reviews

  • 4th of July in Waikiki

    "My family of 4 had a wonderful stay at this condo in the Waikiki Shore complex. The 11th floor views are fantastic. The location and views are unbeatable. We especially liked walking next door to the Shore Bird restaurant for happy hour ($3.50 mai tai's!). There is also a Starbucks next door. Everything is a short walk from this location and we didn't need a car. The only thing I might suggest is replacing the twin air mattress with a queen sized one for better comfort if a teenager is using it."

  • Amazing stay!

    "Greetings from the Bay Area! My family and I had a wonderful time! Place was perfect for our family of 5! (2 Adults- 3 Kids) ...especially for those with a tight budget like us! Our room was CLEAN, COZY, FREE PARKING AND AN AWESOME LOCATION! Our extended family members complained about their stay around the hotels closer to Waikiki about noise all night and traffic. However where we were was perfect. Aqua Palms was in a perfect spot. Not as crowded. Close to the beach, Ala Moana Mall right around the corner from us and my kids favorite part of the whole trip was being directly across the street from the The Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon which is FREE to the public! Will definitely consider staying here again! BIG THANK YOU TO CAROLYN FOR MAKING THIS SO EASY AND FUN! Aloha!"

  • Beautiful condo in perfect location!

    "My husband and I stayed here for 4 days. This condo has been beautifully renovated with dark hardwood floors and new counter tops. The view from this condo is breathtaking. You can see diamond Head volcano and Waikiki Beach. The bed and couch are soft and comfortable. Everything you need from dish detergent to beach towels is provided. My favorite part was the central location of this condo. Honolulu has congested, busy traffic so we preferred to walk to where we wanted to go. We were able to walk to the beach and walk to restaurants and shopping everyday. This condo is close to the golf course and a biking/jogging trail. We played basketball on the 6th floor of the condo(a basketball is provided for you). After a busy day, my husband and I had an amazing condo to relax in each night. I loved staying at the Waikiki Moon, and when we visit Honolulu in the future, I will book this condo again."

  • Roomy, comfortable with a fantastic view

    "My 2 sisters, a friend and I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Waikiki. While the unit could use some updating of the furnishings , it was spacious (especially for Waikiki) and comfortable. We had breath-taking views of beaches and Diamond Head, but we would have been willing to give up some space for a lanai. Of the 3 condos we rented thru VRBO while island hopping, this was the most comfortable. The kitchen area is large enough for 2-3 people to be involved in food preparation. The master bathroom was unique and spacious. The photos represent this property well. Unit is located near the beaches, shopping areas , the zoo and the park with everything you need within walking distance, but at the same time is was relatively quiet. Yes, the furnishings are a little worn and carpeting needs to be replaced, but at least you are made aware of it prior to renting, instead of being surprised upon arrival. Koko Resorts was responsive to all our inquiries in a timely manner and would definitely reccommend this property to friends and family."

Waikiki Travel Tips

Imagine waking up on a tropical island with the salty sea breeze gently blowing through the window and a sandy white beach sitting just outside your door. Turn your dream into a reality by planning a vacation to Waikiki.

Situated on the south shore of the Hawaiian island Oahu in the the city of Honolulu, the neighborhood of Waikiki is famous for being the former playground of Hawaiian royalty. Waikiki, which means spouting waters in Hawaiian, is the area’s main destination for visitors from all around the world. Here you’ll find the height of Hawaiian culture with various restaurants, shops, activities and entertainment.

Waikiki is mostly known for its exceptional beaches, with almost everything within walking distance to the ocean shores. Whether you’re looking to learn to surf, dive in for a swim or just laze around in the sand, it’s all right there for you.

In addition to aquatic adventures, there’s plenty to do on land as well. Waikiki and the surrounding areas are full of historic sites, museums, natural wonders and a ton more to make your vacation a memorable one.

Things to Do in Waikiki

Diamond Head: As one of Hawaii’s most well-known landmarks, Diamond Head is a volcanic tuft cone with an exciting hiking trail, amazing coastal views and military history. The crater was formed more than 300,000 years ago during an explosive volcanic eruption. The trail was built in 1908 as part of a coastal defense system, and on the summit itself you'll see military bunkers. The top of the hike also provides a postcard-like view of the shoreline.

Waikiki Beach: Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous in the world. You won’t want to miss out on the two-mile stretch of white sandy shores meeting stunning, warm waters. Waikiki Beach is the perfect spot to stretch out that towel and relax in the warm sun with a good book or take to the water for adventures with boogie boards, surfing and swimming. It’s also a great place to try out a catamaran or outrigger canoe ride.

Society of Seven (SoS): For some top-notch Hawaiian entertainment, look no further than the Society of Seven. This group has been headlining shows at the Outrigger Main Showroom since 1969 and still wows crowds to this day. The Hawaiian band puts everything they have into each show, displaying their talent and energy every time they take the stage. Each performance is full of singing, dancing and comedy skits, showing off their hilarious personalities. SoS has released many albums and also has a regular show in Las Vegas. The SoS show in Waikiki is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

Pearl Harbor: There are a variety of exhibits, memorials, displays and museums within the ground of Pearl Harbor to honor those lost in the attacks and those who served during the second World War.

USS Arizona Memorial: Part of Pearl Harbor is the USS Arizona Memorial. This spot marks the resting place of more than 1,000 sailors and Marines killed during the attack during WWII. The memorial was built in 1962 and is certainly a historic and moving place to visit. The remains of the the battleship were declared a National Historic landmark in 1989.

Shopping and Dining in Waikiki

Top of Waikiki: For an exciting dinner experience unlike any other, head to Top of Waikiki. This special dining establishment is Hawaii’s only revolving restaurant, providing you with 360-degree views of the islands, beaches and mountains as you eat. Plan your meal for sunset and watch the amazing array of colors fade into night.

Ono Hawaiian Foods: If you’re looking for an eatery that serves up some of the best local food, look no further than Ono Hawaiian Foods. Off the beaten track, this restaurant provides you with traditional Hawaiian dishes like kalua pig and lau lau with pipikaula and lomi salmon and poi on the side.

International Marketplace: With more than 100 shops and stalls set against a jungle-like backdrop of banyan trees, this is definitely one place you’ll want to stop to pick up mementos and gifts for loved ones. Whether you’re looking for traditional Hawaiian jewelry, fun knick-knacks or just a t-shirt to commemorate your visit, you’re sure to find it at the International Marketplace.
