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.

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 good value

The hotel(Pacific Beach)was better than I expected for the price. It was comfortable and it had an excellent location across the road from Waikiki Beach. The free breakfast was superb and the hotel gave the option of eating at two excellent restaurants. Loved this vacation!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The location was excellent. I loved the two minutes stroll to the beach. Waikiki is filled with excellent eating establishments and lots of entertainment. The area had a great nightlife but with a very respectable and safe environment. Public transportation was easily accessible and inexpensive. One would never be bored in Waikiki.

Nice View

The Pacific Beach Hotel was ok. We stayed in a beach front room on the eigth floor. Other than the road noise from the street between the hotel and the beach, the location was pretty nice. Next time I will probably go to the Outrigger a few blocks north because there is no road between the hotel and the beach and the beach appears to be more private.

The hotel Pacific Beach ...

The hotel Pacific Beach Hotel should have said across from Waikiki beach instead of on it. The location was great though. The hotel from 8/3/07-8/9/07 was under remodel and it needs it everywhere but in the rooms of the small tower. The large tower needs a lot of work. They should have charged 5 tickets to ride the elevators all of them you lose your stomach at least 3 times while going up and down. On the large tower the doors to the elevators open before they even come to a stop (watch your toes). The pool is a joke we never went in it and it doesnt get sun there just on the sun deck. I would say the pool was 10x20 at most, a kiddy pool at best. The hotel staff at the front was great. I tipped our maid three bucks the first day to just change towels and make the bed, when we came back souveniers we had just bought at the market and put on the little fridge were gone. We cleaned our own room and swapped towels with other maids the rest of the week. The gym isnt actually a gym. They have a 24hr fitness and charge you just under $8.00 a day to use it. The equipment is old and rusty. Take your own towel they are $3.00 to buy. There is also no free parking it cost $90.00 for 6 days to park in a tall but small parking structure with 1 very slow elevator. Don't get me wrong we had a great time. Last nut not least if your taking a tour book it at a discount dealer the Hotel prices were not a great deal but you can charge them to your room.

25th Anniversary Hawaii Trip

The best thing about this hotel is it's location! Steps from Waikiki beach! The staff was great. We were there for 10 days and NEVER had a bad experience with any staff person. They were very friendly and helpful. Help make a already great trip even better. We used the hotel service to plan everything we wanted to do, it was perfect. The hotel may not of been the most modern or nicest looking, but I would go back again in a heart beat!

Loved it

This is a great starting point for all the island's attractions. You can anywhere on the island from here in 45 minutes or less. It's on a busy hotel strip, so expect the street noise - some people like that - and great street performers. It's right across the beach, but we preferred visiting the other quieter beaches. The staff was really great there - and we got an upgraded beach view room due to the availability. The restaurant's food was supreme. I would recommend Pacific Beach Hotel - it's probably an 8 or 9 on a 10 pt scale, but a definite value.

Great location

Our experience at Pacific Beach was great. We had a great view from our room. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. Enjoyed the convenient location to the beach and many shops. The hotel was within walking distance of the zoo, aquarium, and many shops. The pool was small but the area around the pool was very relaxing place. Did not use the fitness center so I can not comment on it.

Great getaway

The room was clean, very spacious as well as the bathroom. Loved the view of the ocean as well as the city and mountain. Very quiet even though there were a lot of people on our floor. The location was great with lots of exciting things in the area. The beach is right across the street and everything is in walking distance. It was a great deal for the amount that I paid, which also included breakfast for 2.
