Rite Place Rite Price

The location was perfect for our needs. We wanted to be walking distance to Waikiki but not spend much. We had a very nice clean, small but comfortable room. The blacony had a fantastic view. We went down to the bar for a drink shortly after we arrived and it was just fine for a quick relaxing drink before bed. Breakfast we looked at but couldn't get ourselves to partake. Looked like juice, white bread toast and a few pieces of canned pineapple in a small cup (in Hawaii we expected fresh fruit). We would stay again.

Aloha!

Fabulous vacation!! The Sand Villa is a great place! The staff was just wonderful and sincerely nice to all. Location is good and accessible or made accessible by staff to the majority of activities. The pool is beautiful. The Tiki restarurant is delicious! Breakfast is the same everyday, but just enough to get you going. Free internet access, washer/dryers available and a/c in the room. I will totally stay there again.

Reasonable price for good location

Waikiki in general is a quite expensive area, so compared to other hotels, this hotel is a really good deal. It is quite cheap, the location is really good (just 5 min to Waikiki beach), really nice shopping mile just around the corner. We did not stay directly in the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel but were accomadated in the Aloha Hotel just opposite which seems to be a little bit more modern than the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel. The room in the Aloha hotel was really big, but not very clean (but bearable for a couple of days) and had a balcony as well. Oahu, in general, is not exactely the place to stay for longer: try to get away to one of the other islands as soon as possible,

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.

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.

Great Hotel for the price

Great Location, friendly staff, small room but has everything you need, small balcony with great view to the river and mountains. Great pool and hot tub, nice bar. Old building but the hotel/room are very clean. Approx 3 blocks from the beach, very close to great restaurants/bars and clubs. Overall great deal for the price.

Great place, great price

Desk service was very friendly. The parking attendant was friendly and fast. This made going out shopping and returning to hotel to unload very easy during the day. The location of the hotel made it very enjoyable to walk through Waikiki at night, very safe feeling.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Walking the Waikiki street at night reminded me of Las Vegas. It was very lively and many street performers, even an american idol hopeful, she was excellent.
