Waikiki Resort Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

One of Waikiki’s favourite hotels, located just a stone’s throw from the beach and within easy walking distance of the resorts myriad shops, bars and restaurants. This is a very comfortable retreat with spacious rooms to relax in and a good range of mod cons. On the second floor is an L-shaped swimming pool with furnished sundeck — perfect for catching those rays in-between sightseeing. There’s also a mini spa for pampering and a 24-hour fitness centre just across the road should you feel the need to pound that treadmill! Seoul Jung is the hotel’s signature restaurant, serving delicious Korean dishes created by master chefs. Ilima is the place to go if you feel in need of an American classic such as Caesar Salad or New York Steak Sandwich. The latter also serves a variety of Japanese dishes so, in the food department, you’re spoilt for choice! With its warm, friendly atmosphere and proximity to all local attractions, this is a great choice for families and couples to enjoy an Hawaiian holiday in the sun.

We enjoyed our 10 nights at the Waikiki Resort. It is centrally located in Waikiki and only a half block walk from the beach. The room was clean, we had a partial view of the beach, the breakfast was good and the staff all very friendly and helpful. In addition it was well priced and for us offered excellent value for money.

The hotel was value for money and a stones throw from the beach and the main drag. The rooms were kept clean and there were plenty of hand sanitisers available due to the coronavirus. The breakfast could have varied a bit more but is was still value for money but they never got my wide gluten free bread despite being asked on day 1 of our visit.

This is our second stay here and once again our stay was awesome. From starting our booking with Sherry and always a pleasure to deal with Suzette. To dealing with Brandon when we arrive at the counter our experience here is wonderful. Having the rental car in the lobby is a very convenient addition. The Seoul Jung restaurant has a great barbecue. And the ilima cafe for their buffet breakfast and the Ramen for lunch. I can’t say enough good things about the Waikiki resort. Can’t wait for our next stay. Read less
