We enjoyed this property! Let me break things down. First off, this hotel is a hybrid property that features units for rent through time share owners and brokers, the hotel itself and ones that are occupied by permanent residents. I believe the building is featured in the original theme song video of Hawaii 5.0 Location: The property is located on...

This is a multi-use property- we stayed here as part of a time share exchange but there is also a regular hotel and condos here as well. The location is near the ocean and most of the tourist sites. There is laundry on each floor, which is very convenient, and also a grocery store on the main floor with pretty...

We have stayed numerous times in this property and felt very comfortable on on vacation here. Very reasonably priced and close to everything. Only downfall is the balconies; too small. Felt safe and secure!

The staff was very friendly always helpful. This is more of an older crowd and family place. Don't think they even allow adult beverages by the pool. The prices are way less than any of the neighboring properties. We have stayed at the Hilton Village for the last 10 years couldn't get in this year so tried this place. Saved...

We found this gem online when searching for reasonably priced accommodation In Honolulu. The location is excellent but not right in the middle of busy, noisy and crowded Honolulu. It's about a 15 minites walk to the centre of town. Five minut smout the back to a beautiful beach that is way less crowded than the more central hotels. We...

We are family of 4 (I arrived late so 3 for few nights). Traveling with some budget limits. Needed to be close to the convention center / shopping mall, and also not to far away from Waikiki beach. Needed a space for parking. Wanted a kitchenette to cook. Not too expensive. Not noisy at night. Well, this place satisfied above...

For the past three years, my wife and I have stayed at HHV twice and Trump but decided to stay somewhere this time that had a kitchen so we could be self-sufficient. The IIikai ticked all the boxes apart from the air conditioner that sounded like a 747 was about to land in the condo as soon as we switched...

Rented here via VRBO and it was great. You are in the middle of everything and you can cook some meals in your room. I came to see the sights and not the décor - but it was very clean and in very good working order. I am a repeat visitor and will stay here again.
