Recent Oahu reviews

  • Very nice, secluded private, close to everything on the north shore!

    "Our first visit to Hawaii, the island of Oahu, was a very pleasant and enjoyable vacation. I was unsure of where to stay and took a chance at renting through VRBO. We definitely made the right choice in staying at the Plumeria house. Very secluded and private with 2 security gates. Very relaxing and very close to great snorkeling and scenic Wiamea bay. The house has some age but is very well kept and has everything you will need during your vacation. 10 minute walk to Foodland grocery store, and they even had a $50.00 gift card to get you started! We highly recommend Tropical Waters for your Hawiian vacation."

  • Great room. Great Hotel

    "This is our second time at the Ilikai. Previously stayed in January 2012 and there was only one hotel 'on our radar'. My wife and myself stayed for 5 nights from 20th July in Room. The room was delivered as promised, a comfortable bed, modern kitchen and bathroom, great views and split system air conditioning. The room could sleep 4, with two people sleeping on the sofa bed. The balcony or lanai has great views and at night we often spent some time out there having a drink, a chat and enjoying the light dancing over the marina and distant ocean. The resort though compromising 750 rooms only has a single pool and one bar/restaurant. This suited us as we did not want to stay in a huge resort like the Hilton next door. The only recommendations I could make are to provide a kettle and provide a larger ironing board,"

  • Great accommodation, great location, excellent vacation!

    "We spent a week at the Ko'Olina Beach Club apartments just prior to this past Christmas. It was our second vacation here and both visits have been outstanding. The apartments, grounds, pools and beachfront are always immaculate and the views from our balcony were fantastic. It even provided us with the opportunity to take in a little whale watching! The lagoons are a great place to relax and are a great spot for young and novice snorkelers to explore some of the local fish and see some green sea turtles up close. The apartments are also close to Roy's in the Ko' Olina Golf Club for an excellent meal and also the Monkey Pod bar and restaurant is worth checking out. The tough thing about the Ko'Olina Beach Club is having to leave at the end of the vacation. We'll hopefully be back again!"

Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu is known in Hawaiian as “the gathering place” for a reason. It’s the most developed of the isles and full of excitement, people to meet and experiences to be had.

In Oahu there’s as much to enjoy outdoors as there is indoors, so no matter the weather, you’re sure to have an amazing time. Days can be filled swimming in the sun-warmed waters offnear any number of beaches, trekking through a forest path to take in views of the mountains or trying the different flavors of the local eateries.

Oahu boasts bustling city life as well as laid-back rural living, so whether you’re looking for a piece of the action or hoping to slow down for a little while, Oahu delivers. In any case, you're sure to feel like you’re spending time in paradise with the amazing tropical climate and shimmering blue water as far as the eye can see.

Things to Do in Oahu

- Makapuu Point Light: If you’re fascinated by lighthouses, check out Makapuu Point Light, which has the largest lens of any lighthouse in the United States. In 1977, it was listed in the National Register is Historic Places. You can also trek along the Makapuu Point trail where you’ll see breathtaking views of Oahu’s southeastern shoreline. The lighthouse itself creates a picturesque scene with its red roof against the blue sea.

- Pearl Harbor: To witness the location of the infamous attack during World War II, visit Pearl Harbor. It’s a lagoon harbor off the coast of the island and the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet. In remembrance of December 7, 1941, the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri battleships have been memorialized. Climb aboard to experience what it was like on a ship during the second world war. There’s also a museum providing history and details about Pearl Harbor.

- Polynesian Cultural Center: Experience life like a local at the Polynesian Cultural Center, a living museum in Laie on the northern shore of Oahu. The center is spread over 42 acres where you can see a real luau and thrill over the annual World Fire Knife Dance competition, in which contestants show off their skills with blazing swords. You can also take a canoe ride, see a show and learn about different villages' cultures.

- Pali Lookout: Take the 5-mile drive northeast of downtown Honolulu to Pali Lookout where panoramic views of the Koolau cliffs and Windward coast greet you. The city slowly disappears and nature takes it place, transporting you to a tranquil and serene setting. Gaze around and enjoy the natural sights as stress slowly melts away with each breath of fresh air you take.

- Lanikai Beach: A trip to Oahu certainly means spending time on the beach, and Lanikai Beach is a perfect option. The half-mile shore is considered one of the best beaches in the world. During the weekdays the sand is relatively empty, so there will be plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the water views and warm sand.

- Honolulu Botanical Gardens: Enjoy more of Oahu’s natural beauty at the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, which is open all year long except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Stroll through the different settings and appreciate native flowers and plants at the various green spaces: Foster Botanical Garden, Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, Lili’uokalani Botanical Garden and Wahiawa Botanical Garden.

Shopping and Dining on Oahu

- Alan Wong’s Restaurant: Enjoy a true taste of traditional Hawaiian cuisine at Alan Wong’s. The ethnic roots of Hawaii inspire his dishes that feature native flavors and locally grown produce and ingredients. From the meal options to the service and everything in between, you’ll experience life like a local.

- Waikiki Beach Walk: The Waikiki Beach Walk is the largest development in the area to date and has grown into a gathering place for both natives and visitors alike. Here you can experience a multitude of shops, restaurants and on more than 8 acres. There are more than 40 retailers in the open-air, two-level center as well as a variety of tasty eateries where you can refuel and enjoy a meal.

- Royal Hawaiian Center: The Royal Hawaiian Center provides you with 310,000 square feet of space to indulge in a little (or a lot!) of retail therapy. The center boasts more than 110 shops and restaurants in three four-tiered buildings. You’ll find everything from designer labels to adorable souvenirs to help you remember your trip forever. Other shops include craft, jewelry and surf shops.
