Waikiki Sunset Party Boat

by C_L_T

For the best views of Waikiki Beach at sunset take a trip on the Mai Ta'i from the beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel (the big pink one!) Once you are away from the shore the music is turned up and the deck becomes a dance floor! The crew are fun, dressed as pirates and provide you with $1 Mai Ta'i....what more could you ask for!! If you are staying at the Polynesian Hostel they organise trips with this company and will be able to get a cheaper rate.

Waikiki Sunset

Enjoy the sunset at Waikiki. A party not unlike that in Key West, the crowd applauds when the sun is extinguished... (The sandy beach is nicer to sit on than KW...)

Great Hotel/Condo!!!!!

by A TripAdvisor Member

My wife and I just returned from Oahu 02/09/04 we stayed for 10 nights at the Aston Waikiki Sunset and we loved it. For the first time in many trips we had room to move around without bumping into each other. The living room was really good size and we really like the full size kitchen. And we never really had a problem with the elevators. And we were there on Pro-Bowl Sunday so you know it was busy. They also upgrade us from a standard mountain view to a partial ocean view. It is only a short walk up to the beach. We will be returning to Oahu in a few months and for sure we will stay here again. Steve

better than average

by A TripAdvisor Member

Of the several hotels we've stayed in the Waikiki area, Waikiki Sunset is above average as far as cleaness goes. The price is not stellar, but generally the cleaness quality goes down when you go below $100/day in the Waikiki area. It was actually better than the Princess Kaiulani which was about twice the price. But if you're into saving some money, it's possible to find better fare elsewhere.

Adequate, but nothing special.

by A TripAdvisor Member

We just returned from our trip to Oahu and Maui. Stayed at the Waikiki Sunset for 5 nights. Booked the 2 bedroom which was quite small.

We had six adults and 1 bathroom. Not a very good combination!

The room was somewhat clean. The kitchen floor was oily and slippery.
The lone bathroom was old and thus "felt" dirty.

No problem with the elevators, probably because the hotel wasn't that busy.

If you have 4 or less people in a room, this hotel is okay. Anymore, get another room or change hotels.

Stay was great!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Our family (2 adults & 2 teens) stayed from Dec 18 to Dec 28th. The rooms were great - lots of room for us all. The walk to the beach is about 2 minutes -- not too far at all! Eleavators weren't a problem as reported in other reviews. The hotel has 4, and there's 36 floors, so it takes a minute, but the longest we ever waited (and we were there over Christmas busy season) was maybe 3 - 4 minutes. One thing we weren't too happy about though, was on Christmas Eve, we were told we had to switch rooms! We only moved down the hall, but we were staying 10 days, and had unpacked everything. It was inconvenient, and unfortunately, we weren't offered an apology for the inconvenience caused. I've never had this happen before, and sure was disappointed.
Other than that, the stay at the Waikiki Sunset was really nice.

All went well

stayed from dec 9-12 and all went well..We were allowed to check in early and my senior upgrade was honored. all staff were friendly and accomodating.The condo was nice and the view from the 25th floor was great!...Though room was by elevator..there was no noise...speaking of the elevators..they were fast and problems at all...would stay there again

"Waikiki sunset"

Although pretty, I found Honolulu to be a rather sterile destination with little to offer. I took a circle the island tour of Oahu which was fun. Recommended. Waikiki is an overbuilt tourist mecca and not for the budget minded traveler.

Spectacular Hawaiian Sunsets

"Sunset at my favorite "quiet' spot"

This is the beach I go for "quiet" time. I simply park and lock up, then head up the beach a little ways and there it is ... the secluded beach! This sunset just by chance was nice ... there was a wedding being photographed minutes before, but I don't think they stayed long enough for this lovely effect!

"Waikiki Sunset"

A quick peak at the sunset on Waikiki Beach just before the local entertainment begins.

"West Oahu"

Captured this sunset on the far west side of the island from Waianae

"Always in awe over a sunset"

Nowhere have I been that displays such breath taking sunsets! Some say that once you see a sunset, you've seen them all ... I DON'T THINK SO!

"ANother one missing"

To be replaced soon

"Add a TREE and CLOUDS"

Think you've the best? Try using the trees and clouds to get a better photograph. We were peeking at the sunset from behind a palm branch here and what a beautiful picture it made.

"Calendar material?"

Sometimes we get really hazing sunsets, and sometimes we find the perfect ones that look like they belong on next year's calendar.

"Windward has nice sunsets also"

I always imagined the windward side of the island as the "sunrise" side, but was thrilled when I saw the sun sliding down the mountain range in Kaneohe one evening.

"Soon to appear"

Areas to avoid with children

by eliza191

We are coming to the Waikiki area and will be bringing our adult children and four grandchildren aged between 4 years and 11 years. Is there any area we should avoid when choosing our hotel. We don't want to end up in a red light district or a noisy nightclub area. We have never been before and will be staying 2 or 3 nights on our way to Los Angeles and again on our way home to Australia. Many Thanks.

RE: Areas to avoid with children

by RicardoBA

Waikiki is quite safe and getting even more upscale.. The police do a good job of controlling the street people. However, I would choose a hotel fronting on the beach or on Kalakau Ave.
I would avoid the hotels on Kuhio. While Kuhio is not particularly unsafe, it's not as desirable(couple of nightclubs) as Kalakau.
Hotels to consider:Hilton Hawaiian Village,Waikiki Shore Condos,Halekulani,Outrigger,Sheraton(all Sheratons),Royal Hawaiian,Embassay Suites,,Hyatt,Marriott,Waikiki Circle,Resort Quest Beach,Resort Quest Waikiki Beach Tower Condo. Waikiki Sunset Condo(not on Kalakau but ok,Ilikai,Hawaii Prince(both on Ala Moana)

RE: Areas to avoid with children

by Onedragon

Hi !!!!!
Most of Waikiki will probably be OK.. There is going to be some noise going on there till the early morning hours..It is Waikiki and that is part of why people like it..
I would recommend not staying on the short back side streets toward the Ala Wai Canal with the kids..

Honolulu: First Time Family of 4, Where to Stay & How Long

by herronl

We are traveling to Hawaii in July for 14-days and plan to start in Oahu/Honolulu and then go to Maui. My boys are 16 & 17 and we are a very active family. Our friends have recommended that we stay/vist Waikiki so I thought we would do that for about 5-days and then go to Maui and then back to Oahu/Honolulu for a couple of days before we fly home. Are there places beside Waikiki that we should be considering that wouldn't cost as much and could serve as a "home base" and then we could day trip to the Waikiki beach as we wanted to. Thanks for your advice .. I have read through the forum and picked up a lot of valuable tips already!

RE: Honolulu: First Time Family of 4, Where to Stay & How Long

by RicardoBA

If this is your first visit to Oahu then you should stay in Waikiki. You can easily rent a condo for the 5 days and save alot of money versus a hotel room.
A good condo is Waikiki Shore which is located right on the beach. A good backup condo is Waikiki Sunset which is 2 blocks from a very nice beach. There is alot to see on Oahu which has to do with the history of Hawaii and Waikiki is filled with good restaurants and shops and the beach is excellent for swimming and longboard surfing.
Again in Maui, you should look for a condo rental.

Parking is a problem in Waikiki, and if you stay in the area, a car is not needed. Bus lines are cheap and you can bus around the Island. If a hotel is off the beach, the price drops. Check out Ohana Hotels. Plenty to do, from motor scooter rentals to surfboard rentals. Waikiki Beach waves let anyone with some balance be able to surf. Also catamaran rides and super girl watching for the boys. I have two boys, now men, but they loved Waikiki Beach and walked for miles on the shore, checking out the water scene.....rrrriiight. Aloha.

Hi !!!!
Two places that are good locations and are across the street from each other and both are fair prices ..Are the Ambassador 2040 Kuhio Avenue,(808) 941-7777 and the Gateway.. 2070 Kalakaua Ave......... The Waikiki Gateway Hotel is located at the entrance of Waikiki where two of the most famous streets in Hawaii meet. Kalakaua Ave. and Kuhio Ave.
One just has to walk through the park and across the street to the beach by the Hale Koa Hotel..Or even the Hilton is right next to the Hale Koa !!! : )
