We had a great time and our stay was awesome. The location was great, we just wished that the beach was restricted to hotel guests only. We saw several people smoking by the park and beach and bunch of guys drinking what looked like beer and alcoholic beverages. The hotel could also add a bonfire area at nights - this would have been so awesome for hotel guests! The housekeeping staff were super nice and helpful. The front desk lady was not too helpful at all and she was snobby - not welcoming
I just find it difficult to find words emphatic enough to describe how much I love this hotel. The lobby and restaurant/bar have been recently redesigned with ongoing updates to the rooms for the next year or so. Even so, the serenity of the place is not compromised. From first entering the property, one is washed over with good vibes. Open air from front to back, you can glimpse beautiful Kaimana Beach and the ocean beyond thru the iconic hau trees situated amongst the dining area seating. The decor is spectacular: a modern take on a 70’s surf lodge with gorgeous light fixtures, wildly comfortable and chic (and weather appropriate) furniture, cool art, beautiful colors...an Instagrammers dream hotel lobby. The staff are beyond amazing. Like within a day, I felt like I’d met a whole crew of fabulous new friends but by the end of a week, I felt like I was being cared for by loving family. You can tell they all have fun together as well, particularly the restaurant staff. The food and drink should be noted...likely some of the best being made in Honolulu at the moment, if not beyond. Thoughtful dishes, accomplishing approachable and high end all at once. Everything you want to eat but way better than most people and places are able to execute. Cocktails are brilliant and seasonally appropriate/thoughtful and the wine is the pick of the litter...down to the by the glass options. Topping it all are the treats coming out of the pastry kitchen and even the fantastic cold brew. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with gorgeous balcony views from all sides and, most importantly, a very comfortable mattress. Top notch especially for the price. It’s just so nice to see such a fantastic property so well looked after. Nothing better than staying steps away from some of the best sand in Honolulu. Cannot wait to return over and over again. …
We are a local family who comes to Kaimana once in a while for a staycation. It is on the nicest part of Waikiki beach with a beautiful sandy beach and great swimming. It is walking distance to the heart of Waikiki for shopping and more restaurants. The hotel is recently upgraded very nicely but has not lost its boutique charm. We’ve always enjoyed this place and now even more so. I cannot recommend this place any higher!
Great location! However we reserved a room with a Queen size bed and got a room with 2 twin beds even though they said the occupancy was at 60%. Surely there was another room with a Queen bed. My 6’3” husband doesn’t fit on a twin bed and it was his birthday weekend.
Had a great stay at the Kaimana beach hotel, i booked a wrong room(1 queen bed instead of 2 single) and asked the front desk, Rob, if there was anyway I could switch and change my room, and without any hesitation and with a friendly smile he was able to get us a new room within a minute. Rob's great service and helpful attitude turned a mistake I made into a great staycation.
