Best hotel/resort in Oahu, on the beach

Husband and I are going to Hawaii for first time in September for our 18 year anniversary, flying into Honolulu staying in Waikiki area. Looking for real recommendations on best/nicest place to stay on the beach.

Should we stay in the Turtle Bay area or the JW area or down in the Waikiki area.

As a first-timer visitor - with alot to see - I would most definitely stay on Waikiki.

There is no such thing as the "best" hotel. It depends on what you want - and what your nightly accomodations budget will allow. More information would be helpful.

This definitely depends on your budget. Have you considered a few days in Waikiki and then a few days on the North Shore at Turtle Bay?

My favorite stretch of beach in Waikiki is from the Royal Hawaiian to the Moana Surfrider. The Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach is in between them. To me, this is the has the best sand and surf.

You can definitely get to anywhere from staying in Waikiki. Will you have a car?
