Surfing was cultivated in our backyard and the lifestyle it embodies is central to who we are. Waikiki is famous for its beautiful beaches and we’re steps away from them. But you’ll be just as drawn to the timeless charm and laid-back vibe as the The Twin Fin Hotel welcomes you here.
We’re a retreat. A place to relax and take in the beauty of Waikiki’s iconic sights and rolling swells, from sunrise to sunset. We’re a gathering place to connect with others and share memorable, meaningful moments. We’re a hub for discovering local music, art, and a lasting connection with our island community. And with stunning, front-row views of Waikiki Beach, we’re a place to reflect on the events of the day. And plan the adventures that lie ahead.

First time in Hawaii
We had the best time here. The location is the best with ocean view, beach across the street and anything you might want within walking distance. The staff was great. We enjoyed the freebies and restaurants nearby.
Watch out for the breakfast charge $$$$$ Jan 11-20, 2023
First off when we booked with West Jet we understood that breakfast was part of the Resort Charge which was $45 per day per room at the time we booked our vacation in August 2022. Apparently there is as well a $45 dollar a day per room charge for breakfast, should you choose to take part. In speaking to the hotel they claim to have told us about the $45 for breakfast. In short , during a 9 day stay, 2 plated breakfasts and 5 baked goods cost me $180 US. No where is the breakfast charge documented except when you check out. HOUSE KEEPING WAS GREAT
Fantastic location & service
Definitely stay again. Fantastic location, views & service. Amazing holiday. Pool deck (really nice warm pool), yummy restaurant, water bottle refill station, quick lifts. Ticked all the boxes for what we need on a holiday
Good price, but . . .
The Twin Fin is in a good location and was the best price when we stayed there. Good views of the ocean. The cleaning staff was very good. When we arrived we were told they were out of suntan lotion, which we purposely did not bring, so we had to go to the corner store to buy. The sun in January gets to the pool around 2:00 and the small amount of lounge chairs went quickly. When a couple asked to move 2 seat chairs into the sun area because none were available, they were told yes, but move them back when done. There were towels “holding” a lot of lounge chairs well over an hour, but nobody on staff made them available to those waiting. We asked for a replacement hair dryer because it would run hot for 20 seconds then cold, it the replacement did the same thing (just a warning if you have long thick hair). Towels were offered if you went to the beach, but chairs would be a lot better.
Good location but in need of upgrade
The Twin Fin is in need of some updating, but it is close to the beach and one of the common pick-up and drop off points for a lot of activities. The rooms are musty, and there are some needed repairs. For example, there are ice makers on even floors only, and at least one of them wasn’t working. We told a staff member, and they just told us to go to a different floor. The pool is small and looks much fancier in the pictures. Since the hotel is one crosswalk away from the beach, we never used the pool. Overall, the housekeeping was good, and I was a fan of the reusable water bottles and dispensers. Note, if you want a late checkout, there’s a $30 charge for every two hours. A little much IMO. I actually liked the elevator system where you scan your card and it directs you to an elevator. Some guests seemed annoyed, but I think it’s more efficient.
