The hotel is right on the beach and from our 4th floor partial ocean view room we were on the beach in less than a minute. The room was very clean and the fridge was very useful for storing the extra food we brought back from restaurants and for drinks. The room was spacious enough and the balcony was lovely to AIT out on in the morning just as the sun was rising. Towels for the pool or beach were available from the pool attendant, the pool was very refreshing and there always seemed to be loungers available, although some were 'reserved' with towels for several hours without the attendant removing them.
The concierge and reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the only ones to watch out for are the Wyndham resort staff disguised as the activity centre. We escaped being British as the likelihood of us buying a timeshare was pretty slim, but they were still quite forceful. Its not worth claiming your free gift, as you have to sit through a 2 hour presentation, just take the free map of Waikiki.
The shorebird restaurant is very pleasant for breakfast except for the pigeons, however the staff do try their best to shoo them away. Afternoon cocktails you have to check with the hostess before seating as the waitress will be quite rude to you if you just choose a table, its odd as during the night time happy hour you have a free reign of any seat! I think its because they do a sunset happy hour eating deal, so would rather people didn't hog the seats right onto the beach to watch sunset without eating. There are polite ways of saying so though. The id ea of charging everything to your room is great, but what they didn't tell us is that instead of cash, we had to carry ID to prove that it was our room, I bit frustrating at times.
There are several shops in the hotel, my favourite being the Christmas shop where we bought our souvenir tree decoration.
Overall, the hotel was of a high standard and staff very friendly and helpful. Its in a prime on the beach setting but doesn't come with the same premium as some of the others, mainly because its at one end of the strip. Easily walkable to all the shops and Waikiki beach walk. If we ever make it back to Waikiki we will definitely stay here again.
