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.

Very Family Friendly

The Pacific Beach Hotel was a great hotel for the price we paid. The staff was excellent and accomadated our every need. The rooms might need to be somewhat updated but, they were still comfortable. It is very conveniently located right across from Waikiki Beach. Everything you need is within walking distance. The restaurants were excellent!

The hotel has a great restaurant with a three-story aquarium. The food is great and I would highly recommend the breakfast buffet! A little pricey, but definitely worth every penny! Also, there are some excellent restaurants just a few block away!

Very friendly hotel

The Pacific Beach Hotel has a very friendly atmosphere. The concierge met us on the day we checked in and we did not see him for another two days. He saw us walking through the lobby and remembered our names. It is VERY usual because I have a very unusual first name and it is difficult for most people to pronounce. That impressed my husband and me. For the price we paid for the hotel accommodations, I expected more. When I say more, I mean the hotel could have had more up to date furniture. I was on the elevator with another guest and he said that he stayed in the hotel 10 years ago and much has not changed.

Perfect location and great hotel

I loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a view of the ocean and Diamond Head from our room, just beautiful.It's an older hotel but kept up very well. The free breakfast buffet was huge with lots of food choices,everything was very fresh.The dinner buffet is also very good. Use the concierge,they helped us everyday with the buses and shuttles and any questions we had. The snorkeling on Waikiki,right outside the hotel was great I was surprised at how many fish we saw. Try the Tiki Bar and restaurant just a couple blocks away,good food with a view of the ocean and music every night.

Rent snorkeling equipment and go to the beach right outside the hotel you will see lots of fish.Walk out to the pier and watch the sun go down, they have beautiful sunsets.Friday night fireworks on Waikiki beach.

perfect spot for a perfect trip

The pacific beach was an amazing hotel for our new years getaway. When making our reservation for the partial ocean view room, I began to worry because I ready some bad reviews, but was amazed with what we got. Also at the front desk, I would love to praise Renee because she made sure we were taken care of.

Great Hotel

The Pacific Beach hotel is a great hotel, excellent location. My room had a balcony with a SPECTACULAR view looking out over Waikiki Bay, and the setting sun. As a bonus the main dining room has a 3-story fishtank as one of the walls. Great space.

Great View

When we walked into the room, the first thing we saw was a great view out the balcony window, Diamond Head and the ocean. Never got tired of seeing it. The room was very adequite for the three od us, two double beds and a cot. All were very comfortable. The breakfast buffets were excellent and the service was very good. The oceanarium was a pleasant sight to watcg while eating. The location was excellent, accross the street from the beach, plenty of shopping and places to eat.

Beach right accross the street. Pickup right outside the hotel for several different tours, Arizona and Honolulu tour, submarine dive, scouba diving, sunset dinner cruise, and of course a fabulous luau. Walked a few blocks to the bus that took us on a grand circle tour of the island (do not miss that).
