For Location, Comfort & Activity
Posted Sep 17, 2016
High quality & welcoming hotel accommodation in an excellent location, only a few minutes walk from the beach / ocean, or from the shops & restaurants of the Kalakaua Ave area in Waikiki. Given a free upgrade to an ocean view room upon arrival, access to a complimentary beach bag (with towels, water & fruit) for time at the beach / ocean, and access to a hospitality room when needing a late evening check out. Service from staff was exceptional, with all staff being extremely helpful and respectful. Hotel has very good access to local transport (various buses, if not wishing to take taxis) & for those who like to walk, it takes only about 20 - 30 minutes to stroll along the Waikiki promenade, or to reach the Ala Moana shopping mall in the other direction.
Recommendations of places to visit whilst here: a hike to the top of Diamond Head (an extinct volcanic crater); the Pali Lookout & Tantalus for stunning views; the Bhodo-In Buddhist Temple (perhaps one of our favourite places to visit); the Iolani Palace & the Kawaii ha'o Church (for some history of the Hawaiian Royal Family - or Alii Nui); Pearl Harbour / USS Arizona memorial; the Punchbowl National Memorial; the Polynesian Cultural Centre; the Cheesecake Factory on Kalakaua Ave (a must do); and of course the many beach areas / swimming in the ocean.
Thoroughly enjoyed our two week holiday in Oahu, offering a relaxing time & a little bit of everything!
