Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We spent an excellent time in Waikiki resort. Staff is very attentive and careful, hotel is very comfortable and well situated and the food at the restaurant very good. The only bad point would be the mattress a little bit too soft for our preference.
