Great value

No big complaints here. Overall, this was a good value. The beach / shopping was just a few blocks away. Be prepared to pay $15 for hotel parking.

Wonderful pool!

They have a gorgeous pool that is kept very clean. During the time we stayed they were working on upgrading the rooms, so during they day there was a lot of construction noise but not in the evening and it only served to prove they were working on maintaining the hotel. The complimentary breakfast they offered was a bit limited. They only offered toast or a croissant, orange juice and coffee. Would have been nice to offer some fruit and a few other options for breakfast as I have seen offered at some other hotels. Their food available for purchase was very good and affordable though.

Close to Downtown Wakiki

The Sand Villa was walking distance from everything in downtown Wakiki. The rooms were pretty nice sized, although the dressers kind of had an ordor. We rented a car for the week and we never really needed to use the car. The Sand Villa is walking distance from Diamond Head, five minutes from the international market, and about a 30 minute walk from Ala Mona Mall. If you stay at this hotel you will only need a car if you want to go to the Dole Plantation or North Shore. All I could say is perfect location!

Great Short Term Hotel

Our stay at the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel was very good. Check-in was easy with no hassles. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room we had was small. But, for just sleeping it was just right. I would want a larger room for and extended stay. Continental breakfast was OK. The selection was limited. But, what they had was done well. I would stay here again. Taxi service was arranged and was very prompt.

Great Location

The Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel was greatly located! We were at about 5 minutes from Waikiki beach and near everything. The room was rather small but clean and had a little balcony. It's a great place for young people who don't want to pay a big amount of money but looking for a comfortable place to stay in.

satisfactory

The Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel was okay. It did not cost too much, but there was either a single bed or a full bed in our room for my husband and I to sleep on. The staff was neither helpful or rude, just matter of fact. The hotel is located just blocks from Waikiki beach and in the center of Honolulu, so just a short bus ride or car ride to anywhere in the city. However, there is really no inexpensive dining near the hotel. So, I guess there are some benefits and drawbacks of staying at the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel.

Business trip

I stayed at the Waikiki Sand Villa for an overnight business training. I checked in late and was shocked to see 3 twin beds at knee level. All three were hard as a rock.

Nice

The hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Just a slight caution - be expecting to buy your coffee. Only the first package is complimentary. If you decide to buy food to keep in room - be sure you are ready to eat cold food b/c there is no microwave. Don't pick this hotel for its complimentary breakfast unless you are on the carb and sugar diet. We still had a great time in Waikiki. The Hotel is great for sleeping!! Enjoy your trip.

Good Value, fabulous option

The Sand Villa is a nice option if you are on a tight budget. I would describe it as a motel masquerading as a hotel in a city full of cheesy hotels. The Sand Villa is a much more personal experience than an of the other hotels I tried in Waikiki. Here are some highlights. The pool area is very nice with lots of shady options and privacy. The restaurant/bar is bright and friendly and CHEAP! The food is more than superb (try the pulled pork spring rolls) and a great value, plus the kitchen is open till 3:30 AM. Drinks are reasonable too. The bed is comfy and the shower has good pressure. It is a 2 minute walk to a convenience store, 7 minute walk to the beach, and a 5 minute drive to the highway. Parking is on par or cheaper than most in the area--15 dollars buys you a 24-hour valet pass and you can come and go as you please. The hotel is close to the beach and nightlife, but off the crowded, noisy, annoying main strip. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there if I return.
