Hawaii Trip 2

The hotel is in a great location for all activities. The only draw back is none of the tours leave from this hotel which means having to find other locations for pick and return. The security is excellant and staff was very friendly and helpful.

OHANA Waikiki Beachcomber, WOW!!!

Great reception. The bellman met me at my vehicle and took care of my bags. Excellent service at checkout, also. Staff arranged shuttle to airport. Check in & out was a breeze. My room was GREAT! I ate at Jimmy Buffet's for dinner & breakfast. Food was wonderful, staff was terrific, decor was wonderful and the MUSIC was mellow for breakfast and lively in the evening. Also, try the restaurants across the street. I especially liked Duke's & The Cheesecake Factory. You can rent lounge chairs on Waikiki Beach. I highly recommend this great hotel.

Most enjoyable

The Beachcomber was an unwittingly perfect choice for my vacation. In the thick of the Waikiki scene and a very short walk to the beautiful beach. Friendly staff and a clean hotel. My room didn't really have a view, but then I just slept in it so who cares? You don't go to Waikiki to spend time in your hotel room. You're in beautiful Hawaii! Another plus... all major transport runs by the front door. Tours, taxis, city buses, free trolleys and bike & moped rental just a couple blocks away. My only negative comment: Poor water pressure in the shower. I could live with it but I would have used less water to wash out the salty sea water from my many trips to the ocean. One suggestion for them: Install a rinse off area outside the hotel for beach goers to spray sand off their feet. I will definitely return to the Beachcomber ( unless I can afford the swanky beachfront hotels ) Mahalo!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Make use of the trolley transport that take you around Waikiki and to the big mall where you can hook up with regional bus service. The trolley is free with your Hotel key card. Don't be in a rush. The trolley and buses make many stops. I also recommend renting a bike. The coast front parts of Honolulu are very flat and biking around is easy and relatively inexpensive.

Excellant location, friendly staff

Quiet, was able to get work done on the computer without interruption. In-room safe was large enough to accomodate the laptop.

If you do not have a car, get a bus pass at the ABC store, a What's Happening booklet with the bus routes and let the bus do the driving while shopping, sightseeing nearby. Get on and off all you want.

Ohana Beachcomber August 2009

I stayed here for 4 nights and could not have been happier with the choice to stay there. Unless you want to pay twice as much to stay at the Outrigger or Moana Surfrider across the street, this is the best bet. This hotel is in the perfect location for pretty much anything. The beach is right across the street, there is shopping everywhere near by, amazing selection of restaurants, bus access was a two minute walk away, and the Waikiki clubs/bars were all within walking distance. The rooms were a little small but they were classy and kept extremely clean and the pool was also a bit on the small side. Every last staff member that I interacted with was beyond nice, the definition of ALOHA. One caveat, Waikiki is hustle-and-bustle, with lots of partying and socializing. If you are looking for a much more laid-back experience, I would suggest one of the outer islands or a stay in Kailua on Oahu. I visited these places after staying in Waikiki and the experience was much calmer and slow-paced.

If you are there to do a little partying, it doesn't get any better than the Red Lion (on the same street) on Monday night. $0.75 rail cocktails and $3 pitchers is one of the best drink specials I have seen anywhere.
