“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

After a week up town we booked a condo at Waikiki Shore which is next door to Outrigger Reef Hotel. Our room on the 7th floor had well equipped kitchen with combined lounge,dining and bedroom. We had a small study plus large bathroom with washing machine and dryer. The highlight was the huge balcony overlooking the park and out to the ocean.....wow! Great location, easy walk up town and plenty of great dining choices close by. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed here a year ago and it is in the perfect location , best views and secure , I'm not going to say it's the nicest room but you don't go to Hawaii to spend all your time in the room . I went sky diving , swimming with sharks . Helicopter and loads more . And you get picked up right outside . Great food within walking distance .

Our unit was #1014 and was booked thru the Outrigger. We called the 1-800 number up arrival at airport to let them know and then called 3 minutes out. A representative from the Outrigger was waiting for us in the lobby. He took us to our unit and finished the check in process. There was not a spot for us to park that night there but one was available at Outrigger Regency (1 block away). We were told to call the next day to check on a spot for the remainder of our stay. We talked with both Walter and Wynci(sp?) at Regency (both of whom were very helpful throughout the week) and were able to secure a spot for the remainder of the week at Shores. Even though our unit was a little outdated, it was clean and bright! We had a view of the ocean, city and fireworks at Hilton on Fri and Sat nights. It was great to have a kitchen and washer dryer. I highly recommend Waikiki Shores!

Best location on the beach of Waikiki, step out from the gate and you're on the sand!
11th floor room with beautiful views of the ocean, sunsets and Friday night Hilton fireworks.
Nice and clean apartment with kitchen, free Wifi, no street noise could be heard during our stay. Although any noisy neighbors will be heard.
Ala Moana shopping centre is about a 20 minute walk away, or buses are out the front as well as the Pink trolley line stop across the road. Starbucks and Subway on the bottom level, lots of eateries and ABC convenient stores all in close proximity. A block away from Kalakaua Avenue for more restaurants and shopping.
Booked privately through Captain cook resorts however non affiliated the reception staff at this property were very friendly and helpful. Tours can be booked from the lobby also which can be convenient.
If returning to this island I will not hesitate to book and stay here again!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better ocean views

Great condo to stay while you visit Waikiki - right on the beach, close to restaurants and shopping, nice park nearby. The unit we rented was the Best condo unit we have ever rented - fully furnished with washer and dryer, huge lanai, and the kitchen was fully outfitted with everything you could image. We booked this thru the private owner asnd had no problems - the unit was immaculate upon entry and the check in and check out was so easy. Would recommend
the Waikiki Shore - via private owners - anytime - it is the way to go. Ocean and park views both

Room Tip: No comment on room service as there is none. Some local restaurants do delivery to the condo build...

Our studio apartment on the 8th floor was perfect for the two of us for our 2 week stay at Waikiki. We loved the fact that we were not wedged between high rises and had a beautiful view over De Russy Park and the beach. We could prepare our own meals if we wished in a well equipped kitchenette and often took our breakfast on our balcony watching the activity on the beach. We appreciated the washer & drier, the full sized fridge and the coffee maker.The location is very convenient within easy walking distance of the restaurant and shopping precinct of Waikiki. Being right on the beach with easy access is also a plus.The staff are so warm, efficient and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel special as I'm sure all their guests are. Thank you to Leilani, Derek, Brendan and Mylene and also the night security men who made our late arrival at around 3 am. seamless. We would have no hesitation in returning to Waikiki Shore.
