The Pacific Beach Hotel in Hawaii's Oahu is a haven for both children and those who once were children. The three-story, 280,000-gallon aquarium is a big hit, along with the arcade, pool and whirlpool. For the sports enthusiast, there are on-site tennis courts and jogging trails nearby. The Oceanarium Restaurant will draw everyone to the table with a colorful seafood buffet, and the Polynesian Dinner Show is a fire-blazing spectacle not to be missed. The hotel also wins points for being one of the most environmentally friendly locations on the island of Oahu; certain rooms use only recycled or biodegradable products and limit energy consumption.

Neighborhood
The Pacific Beach Hotel is located across from Kuhio, the calmest section of ocean in the area, and guests can enjoy lodging on Kalakaua Avenue, a popular stretch for visitors that includes many shopping and dining options next to Waikiki Beach. High-end retailers like Cartier and Apple share the space with outside vendors selling trinkets and souvenirs. Many famous chain restaurants can be found, including California Pizza Kitchen. The Honolulu Zoo is only a 10-minute walk away.
Hints and tips
When you book your stay, ask for an oceanfront room above the fifth floor for the most impressive window panoramas.

Consider stocking up on snacks or small breakfast treats at the ABC Store in the lobby - they might come in handy during early morning tour excursions.

Restaurant nice, beds too hard

The Oceanarium restaurant was very nice (especially when there is an available table near the huge fish tank). I took my girlfriend here for a week as a Birthday surprise. Just the two of us show up early. The room is supposed to be ready at 3pm. At 3pm we went to check in and they said the room is still not ready, we continued to come back every 10 minutes and still not ready. We couldn't check in until 3:45. Then we get in the room and it was two single beds instead of one king. I go back downstairs to let them know, and they were rude about it as if I was the one who inconvenienced them. I stayed calm because I didn't want to be in a negative mood, I couldn't wait to drop off my things in the room and go explore Hawaii. We go to the new room and lay on the bed, and no joke, this bed was hard as a rock. The room was nice and clean but the bed was very hard, and the "Oceanview" upgrade to me, was a waste of money as you still face another hotel instead of the ocean, you have to lean over the balcony and look left to get ocean views, I went to a different clerk to talk about this and she gave me a snotty response also, she said "If you can lean over the balcony and see the ocean, we consider this an ocean view". I didn't want the hotel to spoil my trip so I let this go and went to grab a drink. As the next person behind me went up to the desk, they were much friendlier. It seems as if for some reason, they were favoring their Asian guests over U.S. Travelers. That did kind of bother me. Our shuttle driver was great, he told us where to go to grab a drink with a nice view, and there is no better bar then the one at the Ala Moana hotel, the staff there is VERY friendly, make very good Mai Tai's and the bar is right on the beach. You can hop the wall and take a few steps and you are in the ocean, that's how close. Next time, I will definitely stay at Ala Moana hotel instead of Pacific Beach.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Ala Moana hotel is a very short walk from Pacific Beach hotel, it has a more historic look to it. Go through the front and keep walking in straight through to the bar area and grab a seat right on the beach, kick your feet up and enjoy Mai Tai's. From there, you will see the boats docking on the beach. look for white and blue one called Kepoikai 2. cheap to ride and cheap drinks.

Great location for the price

The location is very convenient. The beach is across the street and you can walk to TONS of shops and restaurants. Everyone on staff that I dealt with was very kind and helpful. Note that the "ocean view" rooms require that you lean over the balcony a bit to see the ocean. You can hear the ocean from the room which is very nice, but not sure it's worth the upgrade price. If you want an ocean view go for the "ocean front" rooms. The breakfast buffet is a great perk. Plenty of choices and the aquarium in the dining room is facinating.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Be really careful swimming, surfing... The water is very crowded. The outrigger canoe boats take an "were the big guy out here so get out of the way" attitude. I fell off my surfboard, hit the reef and broke my elbow. Saw several people who were hurt from stepping on sea urchins and from getting banged up on the reef.

The location is in the center of wikki which turned out to feel like las vegas...not a relaxing island get away. I would never stay here again. The pictures are deceiving and the rooms are poor.
