I liked that we were greeted properly and was offered hot towels and pineapple juice which I loved. Once we got to our room we were a little disappointed knowing that the picture on the website didn’t match what we thought would have been. There was a small mirror in the bathroom with a small sink. I liked the shower but the seat in there was rusted and a screw was not bolted down and was apart. Other than that it was a good time.

Perfect, I like it. Next time I’ll reserve same hotel

I liked the hotel but guest should be aware they will charged $30 a day for parking and an additional resort fee of $20 a day.

The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. There were many amenities, including pineapple juice upon arrival, daily breakfast, complimentary use of beach towels, umbrellas, and mats, and free access to a shower room where we could wash off before our later flight after a long day on the beach. I appreciate the close proximity to good food and beach access. We paid extra for a suite, and were very pleased with how spacious it was.

It was perfect. Pictures are accurate. Loved the staff.

I really like that the property provided a map of the local area and equipment for the beach 🏖

Staff was amazing. Alex at the front desk and KC the concierge were very welcoming. KC helped us get last minute reservations for zipline at Kauloa Ranch and even organize transportation!

It was a close walk to the beach, good breakfast, great service and nice affordable rooms. Perfect for our first stay in Waikiki!

The hotel has a nice lobby, a good Continental breakfast (which should perhaps change daily to provide some variety for multiple day stays). The family suite was very comfortable and allows for independence for different family members!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was bright and cheery. I liked the breakfast buffet each morning. The location was very good. It was close to the beach (2 short blocks) and the main street for shopping and eating. $25. parking per day sounds expensive to me, but also seems to be consistent with others in the area. Rooms are very small, but adequate since you don't spend much time in room.

We loved that it was close to the beach and all the restaurants and shopping. We ate breakfast at Vive every day but one because we had a sailing trip booked. It's a great place for the price.
