Superb beach and surf access. Inexplicably, shrubs block view of the ocean from lobby and bar, but not from restaurants. Low priced room is 200 sq ft, with a queen size bed with little room to sit or even unpack unless you use a small outside porch. My room overlooked hotel dumpster several floors below. Hotel is very clean, with nice bathrooms, but a bit frayed around the edges. Diamond Head location is uncrowded part of Waikiki with large adjacent City park and another across the street with not much traffic.

Rooms incredibly small, barely enough room to sit; it was the smallest hotel room I’ve ever been in. $34.@ night for parking and $18. Resort Fee. Just dollared to death for basic amenities...it’s not even a “resort”. Overpriced menu for mediocre food. I used to love staying at Kaimana but will never stay there again or recommend it. Service; absolutely nothing distinguished them from a Motel 6. Terribly disappointed.

I should've done more research on the size of the hotel. It is small, no parking, only valet at $34 a day. Hotel is next to a public park and beach spots get taken quickly. The rooms were TINY. We even paid $130 a day extra to upgrade to a bigger room and my bedroom is bigger at home. The restaurant is on the beach and open air dining was nice unless its 90 degrees with 55% humidity. The waiters were very nice. Overall it was OK. if you're looking for a hotel away from the bustle of tourists on Waikiki beach and be around more locals, this is a good hotel.

Hotel is outdated but the location is great. Its a beach front hotel with a good restaurant. The rooms are a bit small. I expected bigger. I recieved friendly service.

Staff was great. Beach was not super packed. However there is not a pool so just be aware

The koi pond and Hau Lanai Restaurant really made this place special. I also enjoyed watching the birds in Kapiolani Park across the street. And the hotel is literally on the beach, yet still quiet. All in all, it was really amazing, once I got over the shock of the fact that there’s really nothing “new” about the New Otani. The property is dated. They’ve updated rooms, but there’s still no ventilation in bathrooms, so instead of solid doors, there are slats in the door. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Quiet, older hotel right on the beach. Rooms are very clean and decently appointed but tiny. Valet is expensive and your only option. The wonderful Hau tree lanai restaurant is a little dated and not as wonderful as I remember... Staff was very polite and courteous. Pricing was average to high.

Not a huge impersonal Waikiki hotel, but something different and better. Small room sadly but great view and a quiet beach out front; no pool. Great spa too!

Very nice hotel. Food was good and people very friendly and helpful

Wonderful staff. Excellent location on a nice beach away from hustle and crowds of Waikiki. Great Breakfast. We received an upgrade and didn’t even ask for it. Wow

Clean, quiet and scenic. Great Japanese food. Hau tree lanai is spectacular.

good stay. Nice view. Parking $35 is too high.

The staff was extremely nice and friendly. Helped me with everything I needed and more.

Located on a nice, quiet beach away from the crowds and next to a park. Yet, it is within walking distance of many amenities and attractions. Spacious, clean rooms. Maid service was friendly and excellent. The only thing that was missing was a concierge service.

We had a ocean front room with a great view. Away from the crowds but nice walk to the main part of Waikiki. Beautiful beach that wasnt to crowded. Hotel was nicely kept and our room was very nice. Staff was helpful and very nice.

Have bed bug bites not a great experience to say the least
