Found this small hotel away from the crowds of Wakikiki. Peaceful surroundings, witha great beach without the crowds. Small lobby bar and oceanfront breakfast dining. Comfortable rooms with ocean views. I was on business , but felt like i was on vacation at a private resort.

We just stayed at this hotel for one night while on business. When doing my research on the hotel, I was impressed with how beautiful they were and anticipated a beautiful room when we arrived. To our disbelief, the room we were given looked more like a cheap motel room still decorated in 70's decor. When I called the front...

It's like you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of Wakiki. Quite boutique hotel fronting the best section of beach in Wakiki. The beach isn't crowed even on the weekend, and there is a calm cove to swim. Oh and the views are to die for, especially at night. As a boutique, it lacks some of the...

Great hotel right across from Diamond Head. Be a part of Waikiki without the crowds and hassles. Great beach. Amazing beach front restaurant. And you must try one (or more) Mai Tai's.

Upgraded to a oceanview balcony for $100 extra a night. As most reviews say this is a wonderful view property and right on the beach. Really this is only one of many things to consider when traveling, for us at least. For almost $500 a night you think you could get a printout of a boarding pass for a tour...

I wrote a very favorable review of this hotel a couple of years ago. In my opinion, it is still a lovely three-star lodging in a five-star location.
