Nearly new hotel with all the facilities.

Pros: Very modern - near new appearance
Cons: It wasn't a cheap experience but seems on par with the area for the quality.
Location: Great location - away from the overcrowded main beach with plenty of room and a short walk to the main Waikiki area.
Our 2 bedroom unit was fabulous with ocean views. Plenty of room and full size kitchen. Staff were very obliging.
