Great couples getaway

The service was excellent, the room was very nice and spacious with all the utensils needed for a week's stay. The restaurant downstairs was nice and the food was great. Although I wish the pool was a bit larger, overall it is a great stay and location. I found it useful that anytime we were headed to an activity, all of the shuttle's picked us up right in front of the resort. The only problem that I encountered was checking in on the second floor, I just wish somebody would have informed us ahead of time so that we did not have to carry our luggage around the resort. Overall prefect stay!

Excellent place to stay

Good location (not too crowded, close enough to the beach), nice and eager-to-help staffs, clean and well maintained room. I especially like it because of the availability of public (paid) parking near by.

There is a large public parking lot at the marina (very short walk). The base rate is $1/hr (as of Dec. 2013), but they have specials like $6/10hr (Mon-Fri), and you don't need coins.

Great holiday!

We stayed at this resort for 2 weeks in October for a late getaway. We choose it as it had a full kitchen and great location, and it did not disappoint. The kitchen was small but functional and handy for breakfast, we saved quite a bit of money not eating out every morning. The resort is situated right at the end of Waikiki beach, an area we have stayed in before so we were very pleased, it is a bit of a walk to the centre but nothing to bad. We found it was good value for money, cheaper than other resorts we have stayed in and with a better room. We had a great time and would stay here again, definitely recommended!

Using the local buses to some of the attractions instead of a tour company can save you money. The Bus is the best value and a 4 day pass is available.

Very Pleasant Stay

We stayed here for 10 days and couldn't have been happier - we would stay here again and would highly recommend to friends to stay here. The location is perfect if you want to visit Waikiki Beach but don't really want to be in all the crowds... all transportation is located outside the front door.

Wonderful family vacation

We rented a room with a full kitchen and it was a perfect type of accommodation for a family with two young kids. The room was always clean with the appropriate types of furniture and amenities for a very comfortable stay for a week. All the staff members we met were friendly, welcoming, and competent and the resort was ideally situated with a pool and the beach and lagoon nearby. The downtown area was close by and the resort is very close to many restaurants and a grocery store. We really enjoyed our stay at the resort and would stay there again if we visit Honolulu in the future.

grocery shopping at the Food Land grocery store in the Ala Moana shopping center which makes it more convenient for a family traveling with young kids; rent a car for a couple days to tour Oahu which is a pretty small island and easy to get around in

Vacation

The outside was beautiful, but for the price it looked like a hotel on the mainland that paid half the price for. There was no room service which was very disappointing and I got hit with a timeshare pitch right after I got my keys...wow.

Great!

The Waikiki Marina Resort is a great place to stay. It is a walk down to the action but that's why I like to stay here...it's quiet and calm down at this end of the beach. You can be down in the heart of Waikiki in 10-15 minutes but are still close to restaurants and convenience stores here. The large rooms here have been recently updated so are really nice with fully equipped kitchenettes, modern baths and furniture on the lanai. I had a marina side room on the 9th floor and it was beautiful at sunset. There is a restaurant on-site but the service it mostly a hit although I had one big miss at breakfast. I won't hold that against them!
