We stayed three nights in the condo at bellows, it was cold looking inside no atmosphere, concrete floors, old furniture. But it was clean. There was a lot of ants and ant traps on the floor. I didn't know it was so far back from the road. There was a little coffee shop which was adequate and a gas station,... More

Rented a two bedroom condo. Walked in to find cement floors, rusted out fridge, pubic hair all over the shower area and feces under the toilet seat. If this is how you enter a fully cleaned ready condo, I don't want to see a dirty one. Obviously house cleaning is not doing their job correctly. I don't even want to... More

We have taken our family to Bellows about 3 times over the past 6 years. I have to say it is my favorite place on Oahu. The cabins aren't fancy but they are clean and economical for families. And the views are amazing! Bellows Beach is absolutely gorgeous and safe for the kids to boogie board and surf small waves.... More

One of the best beaches on the island so clean and tidy and just look along the beach and the ocean so amazingly blue. Great facilities for the day. Lots of wild pigs and mongoose to see. Crazy golf and lots to do.

I just stayed at Bellows for probably the 16 or 17th time since 1985. My husband and I always bring friends and everyone raves about the beautiful and relaxing environment. However, it has gotten to the point that I have to warn people about the cabins and I have to fight the impulse to get a bucket and some spic... More

Stayed in a cottage (246B) on the "back-row" for 4 nights. Yep, the beach is what you're paying for and that's it. I'm use to rough accommodations - aircraft carriers, Afghanistan and the like but this cottage was pretty disgusting from a filth and worn-out perspective. After seeing the bottom of our kids feet black from the dirt on the... More

We have been living on the island for 25 years now. We really haven't seen anything but the cabins being updated. The condo is nice but it's too far from the beach. Bathrooms are not kept up, I was even the first one to go in after the cleaning crew left. And there was feces on the walls. They could... More

Stayed at Bellows March 11-20, 2016 with the whole family, 11 of us total and we had two units hooked together. It was a wonderful family experience. Housekeeping was much better than three years ago. They were very generous with extra towels and fixing things that broke, including the oven. They replaced it the same day with a brand new... More
