good value

Hotel is in a good location with a short walk to the beach and easy access to roads in and out of Waikiki. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel has a pool which many in the area do not, so it was nice to take a dip in the evening. Shopping and restaurants were within short walking distance, so we took in the local sights and enjoyed the dining and shopping.

good choice for the price

It's a good hotel, not the best one though. Pretty well located (2 blocks from waikiki beach) and close to shops. Complimentary breakfast consisted in toasts, pineaple fruit and juice, tea and coffe everyday.There more things available for purchase (like cereals, but no milk at all).It was served 6:30am to 9am, and there was not much space to seat during that time. Many guest have to sit on computer desks for breakfast, since there were no enough tables. Wireless internet was slow, very slow. Rooms were spacious, w/ mini fridge and clean. The hot tub and swimming pool, were OK.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Walking from Sand villa to the beach on your right first corner there's a buffet place,good food and cheap price. Can't remember the name now, but good place to eat. Staff not very talkative, but good food. On the left hand corner also an ABC store, with some food, fruit, souvenirs... TRANSPORTATION HINT!!! From the airport you can take a suttle for $15 (that's what all information stands will tell you) BUT, much better choice if you travel only with carry on luggage is the CITY BUS. Lines 19 and 20 run from Airport to Waikiki for $2.25. Takes a bit longer but much more cheaper. Sand villa is only a block away from the bus stop.

I would stay here again!!

We had such a good time here. We loved the Bar and Grill that was located right by the check in area very good price and the food was really tasty. It was one of my favorite places to eat. Everywhere else we ate at was at least 4 to 5 dollars more a plate. Also it was really nice not to have to go to far after a long day of play. It's in walking distance of the beach and pretty much anything else you want. If you want to enjoy the beauty of hawaii though I would rent a car it so much prettier on the other side of the island which only takes about an hour to get to. Be prepared to spend 15 dollars a night for parking but I would still say it was worth it. The staff was very nice the rooms are older but pretty well keep up. If you are used to a 5 star hotel and won't settle for anything less don't come here. For the rest of the normal people in the world that need to go cheaper this is a great choice.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to the swap meet it is every wed, sat, sun, I do believe. They have the best prices and its huge lots of different stuff to pick from and its only one dollar to get in per person. Its at the aloha stadium I think you can even take a shuttle bus there I am not sure we had a rental car. Free parking.

Great Location! Great Price!

This is a great location. Close to everything. The rooms are a little tired looking but very clean. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast gets old after a few days - but hey - it's free! We stayed for 3 weeks so we were happy that there was a laundry room. The pool and hot tub were very nice. Without a doubt I'd come back to this hotel - especially for the price that we paid!

Great Hotel for the Money

Having stayed at the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel in the past, I was not afraid to do so again. It is a great hotel for the small amount of money spent. The front desk and room services were great. The pool, hot tub, workout facility and internet cafe were in good working condition if desired. The bar was excellent with great service. The continental breakfast was enough to fill the belly but could have been far better. It was a little noise early in the morning if you're a light sleeper. I loved that is was only four blocks from Waikiki beach and within walking distance from almost everything else in Waikiki.
