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.

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 week - great location!

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have found that it met all of our needs. It is a great location for several activities and less than a block from the city bus stops.

great location

I found the Pacific Beach Hotel to be in a great location, the staff were very friendly and helpful, There was a view from our balcony of the beach so in the mornings it was very pleasant to sip our morning coffee and watch the world go by. The room was kept very clean by the staff that came in every day. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant but found that to be of good value and again the staff were extrememly friendly.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

This was our second stay in this hotel. The location is fabulous, and our room was great! The hotel staff was awesome as usual, and I will go back there again. We should have asked for the map of Honolulu that they have at the desk. We didnt find out about it until the last day. Maybe they should just hand one out when you check in.
