Hawaii vacation

Laying out at the beach was good; however, you needed to be at the resort's beach at 6:00 am to get a chair, because people would send their kids to save as many as they could, and sometimes never show up. There needs be some changes there. Making the resort non-smoking would be a plus. The location of the resort was very convenient, because everything was in walking distance. I have been at better resorts that are not too crowded.

A Visit to the Royal Hawaiian

This is truly a luxury hotel! Staff and rooms were excellent and HAPPY to help! Our concierge suggested a great magic show and several wonderful restaurants. We made a ritual of watching the sunset at the bar located right on the beach - heavenly! I loved the new decor and the swimming pool area, and the beach is the best on Waikiki! Aloha and mahalo!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate at several restaurants that were near the hotel. For two women, we shared dinners and also bar appetizer plates and this really cut our expenses. No one minded! Try the outside bar at the Moana for great music in the evenings!

Awesome vitamin D break

My girlfriend & I just spent 8 days soaking up the sun and relaxing while our husbands stayed home for work. We had great weather and enjoyed our respite. Each morning my girl friend walked around Diamond Head crater and twice she walked to the top. I made the trip once unfortunately I wore the wrong shoes and got a nasty blister on the first trip. The Royal Hawaiian was an awesome place to stay. It is right on the beach, wonderful service, convenient to plenty of dining options and yes we will stay here again.

Honolulu a piece of heven

The Royal Hawaiian was a clean and beautiful hotel. It carries a flavor of Hawaii because of its color theme. The staff is not very friendly but not rude either. I recommend the Maui Island over Honolulu any time.
