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.

Works well for business

This is a good choice for Waikiki. The rooms are unremarkable but clean. There is some room to room noise, but I didn't notice any in the evenings. The restaurant is too noisy for a business meeting, but there are plenty of places nearby. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Great weekend getaway

The Pacific Beach Hotel is located in the best spot in Waikiki Beach, among other 4-5 star hotels that costs twice as much. While unassuming on the outside, the service was great and the stretch of beach right outside has a barrier made up of large stones. That made for a safe swimming area for when one wants to just relax, and also an area just outside the barrier where one can swim with or against the famous Waikiki tide. My wife loves to shop, and within 5 minutes there are so many shops she can go to shop. The parking, at $ 15 per day during off season that has unlimited leave and entry, is reasonable and convenient for us. All together it is a very relaxing vacation for us. It is great for those who has been to Honolulu many times, doesn't want to do too much sight-seeing or other activities, and enjoys dipping in the ocean.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We recommend eating in the food court of the Ala Moana shopping complex. It is a short drive from the hotel or a short taxi ride, but it has many selections, the cost reasonable for Hawaii, and generally very good quality.

Great Location and reasonable price

Your hotel was beautiful, and the staff was friendly. The only negative I found was the price of the food/buffet at the restaurant. Although it was good we still felt it was pricey.

Cheeseburger in Paradise is a nice place to sit and have breakfast or even dinner and look out at the water across the street. (The walk is just one block down from the hotel.)

Pacific Beach Hotel

We travel to Hawaii quite a bit and we were very happy with the hotel in relation to the cost. We had a nice room, a bit dated, but clean and a great view. We spent the extra dollars for an ocean view and were pleased we did. Overall for the cost of the room we were happy.

Love the PBH!!!!!

We stayed at the PBH in September for our HONEYMOON!! We have no complaints. The rooms were clean and we were given two complimentary beach towels every day. The room has a small refrigerator and microwave that we kept snacks in. We had an ocean front room and you cannot beat the view!! Literally, steps away from the beach. We opened the lanai doors every morning and listened to the waves crashing or watched the sunrise. Location is central to everything, just a short walk to shops, restaurants. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and we had the seafood buffet one nigh which was good. We would eat in the ocenarium for the view of the fish and sting rays! Dollar rental car is in the lobby along with ABC store and other shops! The hotel is located across the street from the Moana Surfrider and between the Hyatt and the Mariott. Same location but cheaper. We had a great time and we will definitley go back!

Good,bad & uncomfortable.

We requested to move to a different room since it was more city view than ocean view and my vacation pack supposed to included this, staff relocate us, but still was less than I expected. AC was leaking, bathroom and closet door fail to close.
