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.

fantastic location and staff

From check in to check out, a fantastic experience. Walk to beach,shopping and dining all in a matter of minutes. Helpful staff made booking tours easy. Would definitely stay again. The only complaint we came up with, the beds and pillows are too hard.

Super Value

This hotel was a super value for the money, with great rooms and located just across the street from the best Waikiki beaches. The only downside to the hotel was the lack of an inexpensive place to eat, but with a half dozen medium-priced cafes and a McDonald's within half a block, this deficiency was not significant.

Great value for the money

We stayed at Pacific beach the end of May 2008 for our honeymoon. This hotel is a great value for the money. The free daily buffet breakfast which you can get in both of their restaurants is very good, although I believe this is seasonal. The weather was great, averaged about 85. Temps rarely go above 90 degrees any time of the year. The beach was right across the street. There is a really good hamburger rest a block away called Paradise Hamburgers (they serve other sandwiches also). The location is excellent. The Pacific Beach is in the heart of everything. Lots of shops and restaurants and some bars. It is 10 min walk to the Int'l Marketplace, a really nice place to shop. They bargain there. Only 5-10 min to the zoo. Waikiki is a great place for walking if you like that. Many of the tour buses stop at Pacific Beach. The staff are very nice! Housekeeping was excellent. The only drawbacks we saw were the pool is pretty small (mostly a kiddie pool) and there were a couple of stains in the carpet. Otherwise, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely go back!! Waikiki is a great place to stay. Everyone is so friendly. It is like a city within paradise. As in any city you must be careful with personal belongings.

Cheesecake Factory and Red Lobster in area also. ABC stores on every block are a little expensive but great for conveniences like water, milk, coffee, souveniers. If you spend $100 in them you get a free Hawaiian coffee mug or calendar.

Excellent Hotel, Great Service

The staff was friendly, and helped us in every way possible. It was also next to the beach. Many shops were nearby, and the zoo was within walking distance. I will go here again the next time that I am in Honolulu.

36 FLOOR, GREAT VIEW

This was our first trip to Hawaii and found our hotel to be very nice. The only bad point was the carpet in our room which was old and stained. We were on the 36th floor and had a GREAT view. Other than that everything else was perfect.

Everything is nearby, shops, beach, etc. etc. The tours that you can take are very good except we found trying to do the big island in one day is not a good idea because they try to show you to much in such a short time. 10 minutes per stop! We would NOT do that trip again.
