“Good value for extra space”
Reviewed 24 August 2010

We are staying here in a 30 day vacation rental, in a 2 bedroom condo for $3100/ month. we found it on Craigslist. This includes one parking space and tax, so it was a much better deal than a suite at the Doubletree. Plus, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a living room, lanai and full kitchen gave us some needed elbow room. This is a nice building with greets security. I don't think it's that noisy, but I'm used to city sounds. The pool is great and it is across the street from the beach and a wonderful lagoon for the kids (by the Hilton Hawaiian Village). I like being close to Ala Moana Shopping Center, but this is definitely not in the heart of Waikiki. It's an easy walk, though, so I'd definitely stay here again.

While staying in Waikiki, I find that condominium buildings are more comfortable--and ultimately affordable-- than hotel rooms. But, in my opinion, Discovery Bay, it is not in the center of Waikiki as it is closer to Ala Moana and the Hilton Hawaiian Village. To some, that may be a bonus. But to me (a walking shopping beachgoer) it is a too far from everything else. The building itself is in fine repair, as was the unit. Upwards of 30 stories, the room views can be great or average (and noisy) depending on which way you face. Most units are true one bedrooms with kitchen or kitchenette. The building, partially owner-occupied, is well maintained and secure. There is controlled access parking on site in the garage. Several different management companies manage blocks of units in the building, so the quality and price will depend on from whom you rent the unit from. In the past, I have paid $85-200/nt. I recommend Googling “Discovery Bay vacation rental” for rental options.

As always; I travel to Waikiki several times a year, I can advise that Waikiki is a nice tropical urban adventure. The city comes with the negatives of a big city, along with the overwhelming benefits of a beautiful beachfront resort. Generally, everything in Waikiki is “a little tired” although there have been continuous improvements in the last few years. If you are traveling solo, take Roberts Hawaii from the airport for $10 (no rsvr rqd).

Two or more people, take a taxi from the airport to the hotel (should be under $30). In Waikiki, nearly everything is walking distance or a short shuttle/bus away. If you need a car for the day, you can rent one in Waikiki.
