We just recently returned from Honolulu, Hawaii and stayed as part of a package deal with Expedia. The hotel, Castle Waikiki Shores, was part of the package deal. We were told we would have a 2-bedroom suite with one bathroom. We ended up with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was on the 14th floor with a beautiful view. The...

My family and I have stayed at Waikiki Shores a couple of times before, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. You can't find a better location anywhere, and the rooms are large, and airy bright and nice. It's true that some of the garden view rooms are darker and not as bright because of the palm trees, but even then,...

My nephew and I travelled from Texas and as first time to Hawaii we did not know what to expect. The hotel was fine - great view of the Pacific, good kitchen, comfortable and convenient. Our parking space was also very close to the front door. The BIGGEST disappointment - the Waikiki Beach. Those rocks need to go. Where did...

Aloha From the Waikiki Shore Thank you "Mahalo" for your response. I am glad we were able to satisfy all of your needs within our control. The very front of our hotel is a bit rocky but when you return, just a few steps approximately 30 yards towards Fort DeRussey who will find a sand bottom area to swim and...

The suite we had was excellent, but please remember each suite is individually owned. Furnishing can be very different from suite to suite. We booked into the highest rated unit overlooking the water. We were assigned one unit. It did not have internet access and the furnishings were low end. We quickly requested another unit. The staff was receptive and...

We booked a one bedroom condo at Waikiki Shore through Outrigger. This is so not a one bedroom. What you get is a flimsy plastic accordion divider that separated the bed area from the living room. We stayed with our two young children, who were sleeping in the living room, and the divider did nothing to block light from their...

This place has three different management companies and Outrigger is clearly the lowest quality. Another reviewer notes this problem that there is a phone in the lobby to connect the Outrigger clients to a desk manager at the hotel one block away. The place is sparsely furnished with cheap beach furniture. We had to call for housekeeping two of our...

Booked our vacation with Waikiki Shore after seeing their hotel on Expedia. This was our first visit to Ohau and the studio apartment and view were outstanding. What they advertise is what you get at reasonable prices. Very clean rooms, kitchen facilities, & housekeeping. The location was ideal, could walk to shops, beaches, restaurants, bus stops, didn't rent a car....

This is the best location in Waikiki, overlooking Waikiki Beach and Fort De Russy. Our room was on the top floor, well equipped and very comfortable with a large deck and awning to shelter from the sun. As it is situated right on the beach front there are no roads to cross to go for a swim. The staff that...

I have stayed twice at this condo. Can be rented thrugh Outrigger or direct from owners. Outrigger has advantage of use of pool, weight room and valet parking at the hotel next door. Voiews on the lanai are fabulous becuase there is a park next door (instead of another hi rise). Sunsets are phenomenal. Can see downtown and jets landing...
