Great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. There is a park across the street and we could walk to wikki. Along the way there are beautiful beach parks and an aquarium. Not much farther is the zoo. The condition of the unit is average, although the bathroom hosts a large tiled walk in shower which was very nice.

Value for money

  • 4 of 5

Well situated, at the bottom end of Waikiki beach so a little less busy. Does mean a bus or walk for shopping which is easy. Apartment was clean and quite big with the basics for a hot drink.

A lovely outdoor area right on the water with tables and sun lounge chairs-great place to have a drink and watch the sun go down.

Well-equipped, clean and quiet unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit at Diamond Head Beach Hotel met our needs. The property is ideally located outside the bustle of Waikiki. Our unit was quiet and equipped with everything needed to make breakfast and lunch, including a toaster and an induction hotplate. The shower was large and the bathroom had lots of towel racks and hangers. We especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The large tree visible from the balcony had lots of different birds visiting, which my husband, an avid birder, enjoyed watching.

The neighborhood is located at the base of Diamond Head, near the Waikiki Aquarium, across from Kapiolani Park, on the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and within walking distance of Waikiki and its attractions. Just beyond Waikiki at the base of Diamond Head is Honolulu’s “Gold Coast.” The Gold Coast is the last strip of buildings at the end of Kalakaua Ave. across from Kapiolani Park. Unlike the “hustle and bustle” of Waikiki, the Gold Coast is a little more quiet.Right out the front doors of these buildings offer great swimming, diving, and surfing breaks such as Tongg’s, Rice Bowls, Old Man’s, and several others. You’ve also got Kapiolani Park on the Mauka (mountain side) as I mentioned, which is a great spot for outdoor activities and the finish line for the Honolulu Marathon, the Tinman Triathlon, etc. Also the Diamond Head Beach Hotel is less than 2 buildings away from Private Clubs such as the Elk’s Club and the Outrigger Canoe Club.
