Please note that Darmic at the Waikiki Banyan is NOT the same as Aston at the Waikiki Banyan. Both companies operate out of the same Waikiki Banyan complex but Darmic is very different. As a long time repeat customer of Darmic's (more than 12 years!) I am concerned that readers on this site are relating the reviews of Aston back to Darmic. The Waikiki Banyan is a large resort complex and there are several companies who manage condos. Aston have the hotel part which includes the front desk. Darmic manage their own rooms and these have always been clean, well maintained, refurbished regularly. The staff are usually NZers or Canadian and are really helpful. They are always available by phone as there is no front desk. I highly recommend Darmic for anyone wanting good quality moderately priced condos in Waikiki.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located just one block from world famous Waikiki Beach, the Waikiki Banyan is a perfect spot for your vacation, be it energetic or relaxing. The complex is made up of over 870 privately owned condos. It can be lively, bustling with holidaymakers going to the beach, playing on the tennis court, which doubles as a basketball court, swimming in the large freshwasher pool, soaking in one of the two Jacuzzis or the sauna, or watching the children having fun in the playground. Darmic Waikiki Banyan unserviced condos are one bedroom, one bathroom with a fully equipped kitchen and lanai (balcony). Each sleeps up to 4 people using existing bedding, a 5th person can be accommodated at an extra charge (see additional rates on the Search page). The condos come with a fully stocked kitchen including flatware, crockery, utensils, pots, pans. You are not disturbed by a daily housekeeper – cleaning and laundry is done by the housekeepers on your departure. ... more less
