So much to do and see. Great location for shopping, dining and beach.

We love the Royal Hawaiian. Staff is wonderful, amenities great and proximity to beach can’t be matched. We are 73 and our granddaughter is 11 and all 3 of us loved the 8 days we were there

Historically beautiful. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to everything you need in Waikiki.

Very beautiful property. Beach was perfect, and every employee was very friendly.

The Pink Palace is more than excellent, I don't know how to express this feeling.. She makes us come back again and again.

We received exceptional customer service at the Pink Palace, and enjoyed superb view of the Diamond Head and beautiful ocean! We will definitely come back again! Thank you so much!

I like the very classy

The property was beautiful and grand. Great view and access to the beach. The pool area was serene and the pool staff was very nice and attentive.

The hotel was very nice, but the room are small. It is not advisable for family. I traveled with my husband and son and the bathroom was so small so giving my son a shower is a struggle. The room was ok for solo traveler but if you are traveling with family, you will not like the regular room. The parking also is not connected to the hotel. I did 2 days self-parking but on the 3rd day, after doing activity, we are tired already so we used valet parking which is $10 more than self parking per day

The historical context of the property.

Everything!

Loved the location and the classic property. Since our stay was during covid there was limited services. The hotel staff and resort did great with these limitations. My only real disappointment was the lack of food choices and minimal beach seating with chairs and shade.

I’ve stayed at this property before; I will again. It’s centrally located, everything you’ll need is on the property or within walking distance. I love it’s quaintness and the lack of crowds. It’s peaceful and rejuvenating.

Proximity to the ocean is awesome. We spent 4 hours at the historic Mai Tai Bar, eating, drinkkng, and watching the sunset.

Like the historic pink palace and the old Hawaiian feel. Didn’t like the tiny pool and the fact you have to pay to have lounges (since there are only a few free ones). And they aren’t even comfortable!!
