Gorgeous hotel and grounds, plumeria scent throughout the hotel. We stayed in the original building, there are not balconies or patios but gorgeous rooms. Smallish pool, but really nice pool area. We rented beach chairs and umbrellas which were really nice. Perfect hotel for special occasions. We will definitely be back to this wonderful property!
Impeccable Service, Great Location.
This is a really great location, and a relatively small hotel. The service was IMPECCABLE as was our entire experience. It’s a very historic building and plenty of beach. “With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swinging hotspot!”
Needs some improvement
It was our second time stay at that property and we still loved it! The property and location are great! It is just small details that need improvement - 1) Breakfast - Continental breakfast (complimentary for marriott platinum) is complete joke - it looks like a kids menu plate, unless you don't care about breakfast. So we just had to pay additionally to order eggs cooked. 2) Lounge chairs - property has a tiny pool with limited number of lounge chairs. But who cares about pool when the property is on the beach - unfortunately you have to pay for lounge chairs on the beach - what a shame for a such property! Otherwise our stay was very pleasant, our first room didn't have a working AC, but second room didn't have any issues after switching rooms.
Not even remotely worth what they charge.
We are in the tower that was added in the 50s or 60s. The room is shockingly small. The furniture, bedding, carpeting, etc are old and dingy. Not even remotely close to what I expected for the prices they charge. I have no idea how this can be labeled a luxury hotel. I could be in a Hampton inn in Muskogee. The grounds are gorgeous but we’re paying top dollar for a full luxury experience, which should include a beautiful and comfortable room.
Amazing and Beautiful
The iconic Royal Hawaiian has been our favorite place to stay or visit on waikiki beach for over 30 years! The beach is beautiful and the MaiTai bar has the best Mai Tai's on the planet! Can't wait to go back!
