My husband, two teenagers and I stayed in #918 Waikiki Shore for 4 nights in March 2017. This condo was very nicely furnished, with great views and gave us lots of space. It is nice to be able to walk to restaurants, the beach, the shops etc. I'm not usually keen on staying in cities on my holidays, but this...

Excellent time spent at Waikiki Shore in early November. We love booking units/ condos to get the extra space. 3 adults together in a hotel room is just too crowded! Loved the full size kitchen which we used for most breakfasts. Very convenient for those mornings when you have a very early start or when coffee and cereal is all...

Just returned from seven nights at the Waikiki Shore. We have stayed there a number of times. This time we were in a Castle Resorts managed room. THE GOOD: Oceanfront. Our unit was literally on top of the water. It was really nice to be able to sit on the deck and see from Diamond Head to beyond the airport....

The Waikiki Shore is the only rental property on the beach . We rented for a week a one bedroom apartment and discovered that the sofa in the living room was also a sofa-bed .

The Waikiki Shore DOES NOT have a pool. The picture on the very first page is a picture of the pool at the Outrigger Waikiki Reef. You can not even see the pool from the Waikiki Shore. I blame tripadvisor for this very deceiving picture of the Waikiki Shore.
