Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel ★★★

Mother & Daughter Vacation

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 13, 2011
Since we booked through Orbitz and not directly through the hotel they could care less about us. The "free" shuttle for guests was not free for us. The $8.95 a day for "guest" parking was $18.95 for us and there was a mouse or mice in our room that we heard every night. When I told front desk she acted like she didn't hear me. Will not ever stay at this hotel again and will no longer book through Orbitz if there will be two sets of rules for ALL customers. TY.

Pretty good for the price

Our stay at the Waikiki Sand Villa was short, as we were actually moving to the area and just needed a place to stay until we could move in to our apartment. Unfortunately I was feeling really sick for most of our stay and was unable to enjoy most of it. The restaurant and bar at the hotel has really reasonable prices and pretty good food. The "free breakfast" was nothing but toast, croissant, and pineapple and since I'm on a gluten-free diet that was pretty insufficient. The one big frustration was that though they claim to have "free wireless" in all rooms it did not work for us for our entire stay. We talked to the front desk a couple of times and they even gave us a cable to hardwire internet to our laptops, but we had to use the computer room on the hospitality floor. All in all, pretty average, but for the price we payed it was pretty good.

Dining

If you're looking for good food for a good price and nearby, check out the restaurant and bar in the hotel. Their happy hour drinks are really well-priced and the food was surprisingly low cost (and still tasty!).

Good service, clean room, great pool

Would recommend Thu, Jul 14, 2011
The hotel was a short walk,5 min., to Waikiki beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. Traffic noise was easily muted with ear plugs. Breakfast was toast, pineapple juice, pineapple cubes and coffee.$18.50 per day parking fee wasn't that bad knowing your car was safe. The room was clean and had WiFi.The pool and jacuzzi were great. The hotel let us use the pool, hospitality room, and parking after checkout time while we waiting for our late flight out.

It was fair

Would not recommend Wed, May 11, 2011
The room is somewhat modern minus the ceililng. The toilets are awesome, but the rest of the bathrooms need to be updated. The hotel staff was pretty friendly. The breakfast is comprised of Toast, Coffee, Tea and some Pineapple. Next time I would spend another $30-$50 to stay at a nicer hotel. Its about $18 per day to keep your rental car there plus the tips for the valet drivers.

Money saver

There are small convinience stores on almost every corner. They are called ABC Stores. They have everything from Toilet Paper to Wine.

Close in, but not clean

Would not recommend Thu, Dec 30, 2010
The hotel was much dirtier than we imagined. The carpet and walls were filthy and the bed sagged in the middle. It was close to the main shopping area if you like that.

Bang for the Buck

Would recommend Tue, Dec 14, 2010
I came for a business trip and scheduled for a standard bedroom, which fortunately got upgraded to a studio overlooking the pool. It was a gorgeous! It had everything and more a person would need for a mere weekend stay-- hard wood floors, dining table, full oven range, microwave, full bath, digital flat screen tv, and two full-sized beds. My, was I FULL of grateful surprises. I arrived rather late in the evening, and there was not much options to eat. However, Denny's was only a few steps away. Though, the lobby/bar was even closer! This hotel was very convenient to all I needed on the trip-- general store, food, shops, beach, and a an immediate escape out of Waikiki. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
