Recent Waikiki reviews

  • Great location and view.

    "My two kids and I enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kuhio. The Location was fantastic, close walking distance to everything you need. The unit itself was smaller than what the pictures make it look like, but not a problem for the 3 of us. The kitchen faucet didn't swivel like it should but we dealt with it. The fan in the bathroom should be replaced as it really doesn't do what it was intended to do. The elevators can sometimes be a nightmare, waiting 10 minutes sometimes. One elevator was supposed to be under repair the whole time we were there, but not once did I ever see anyone working on it. Plenty of linens, the beds were good and the view from the lanai was awesome. Kitchen had everything, I bought a water filter jug because the tap water wasn't all that good, I left it for the next group. Having a free parking space with the unit and flawless wifi is a huge bonus. If you are looking for first class or a romantic getaway this is not the spot, but if you are looking for affordable with a great location and a perfect sunset view every night, then this is your spot."

  • Great unit, perfect location

    "This place is great, location cant be beat. The pics showing on the listing right now are actually older and so the place looks even better. The building is RIGHT on the beach and basically in the heart of Waikiki. Jean, the owner, met us the night we arrived (late!) and she is so friendly and hospitable. Perfect views of the Hilton fireworks right from the lanai. If you want to rent a car for a day or two there is an Enterprise rent-a-car in the Outrigger right next door. I've already recommended this place to a few people since, and if a studio fits my needs next time this will be my first pick no doubt."

    "beautiful ocean view from the lanai and I can see the whales breaching from the kitchen table. My wife and I love to walk on the beach and our favorite Maui beach is a five minute walk from our door. 2 bedrooms and 2bathrooms means your wife will not have to share a bathroom. what could be better? Oh, tennis anyone? 6 courts and lots of other people to play with. great place!!"

    "I have been renting this unit every February for a number of years. It meets all of my needs - clean, nicely decorated, fully furnished, and a full kitchen, with washer and dryer. It is a quiet building, has a very nice swimming pool, and is close to many fine place to eat as well as shop. I look forward to my visit there every year. The landlord is one of the nicest people I know."

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.

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.

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.

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.
