My husband and I enjoyed this hotel to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel had lots of Hawaiian charm and hospitality. Our partial ocean view was fantastic. The room was a nice size, with a couch. We had a coffeemaker and fridge. If you love the beach, the hotel is right on it. And if you like shopping, you really don't have to leave the hotel, as everything is right there. You are in the heart of Waikiki.
Dukes restaurant in the hotel has a very big salad bar lots of stuff to choose from and great fish dishes and steak, etc. Nice ambience. If you want to just have appetizers and drinks, you can have that at Dukes bar and watch the surfing while enjoying your meal. The bar is a happening place, and we met some fun people. The Hula grill restaurant has GREAT food, too.
You really don't have to leave the hotel to enjoy Hawaii. If you want to just rest and relax, this is a great place to do that.
For a less-expensive breakfast, you can take a walk around the corner and dine at Keoni's. From the beach you can take Catamaran rides, for $20 or so. This beach is also a great one for people learning to surf. You can have a long enough ride to get up and actually surf a while. While swimming we spotted lots of sea turtles, and it was exciting seeing their little faces pop up. What a treat!
The only ding was that the fitness center was dinky, with two treadmills, two bikes, and maybe six pieces of weight-lifting equipment. Hopefully they will have a new one completed soon. Pearl Harbor is fairly close, and you can take shuttles to get there. Also, shuttles to the Aloha Swap meet on Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesdays, and Swap is the best place for deals on Hawaiian souvenirs. We're so glad we went there and picked up dresses, shirts, art, and jewelry for Christmas gifts. We loved this place and can't wait to go back.
