Adventure Hawaii

They first put my buddy and I in a 2nd floor room with a view of the garage wall and a single bed. We went back and told them that was not going to work, that we'd booked for 2 beds. They put us in a decent room on the 7th floor that was much much better than the lower level room.

Get off the beaten path for less expensive better food; also look for those $15 all you can eat buffets, much better food and more of it.

In the middle of everything

The hotel is very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The concierge service is excellent. The downside is the location. It is right in the heart of Waikiki nightlife and the International Marketplace. There is street noise constantly. The urban feel is great for NYC but not for a relaxing getaway. The hotel is aware and does warn visitors and offers earplugs. If you want to be right in the middle of the city this is the place for you.

Leave waikiki and drive up to the east to Makapu'u beach. Entrance across from Marinelife park. Gorgeous. Great swimming and surfing in relative privacy
