Ehhhhhh… really disappointed. We traveled in a group of 9 people with 3 rooms. All of the rooms were far apart. So to walk back and forth between rooms means u has to trudge up 3 flights of stairs each time as there are no elevators. Poolside view overlooked stairway and entrance to parking garage - even saying it was a poolside view was a stretch. Can’t sit near pool in the evenings unless u are on a lounger, tables and seat areas are reserved for those ordering dinner. Parking - that could take an entire review. Just a word of warning do more research than believing nice Instagram pics. I travel to Hawaii every year. I would not stay here again.

Room tip: No elevators. No parking. Pool View doesn’t mean you will see the pool. Limited pool seating during dinner hours.

From the moment we arrived for our two-week stay, we were enthralled with the decor and music and vibe of the place! We were greeted with Aloha by the staff who made sure that we were given first floor accommodations, due to our numerous gift items brought for the RIMPAC event. This trip was mostly business, but we managed to fit in several trips to the North Shore. The square tasseled designer umbrellas and the chaise lounges made of wood contributed to the cool factor at the hotel. We did not get to sample the fare at the Hey Day, but did manage to fit in a musical note or two at the circular bar. The lanai plants were very lush and well take care of at the propertyl

Place was in the heart of Waikiki near restaurants , shops and a 10 min walk to the beach......parking was a bit tough because of the limited slots but we eventually had a spot...the only concern was the a strange odor coming from the refrigerator...

This hotel is about 10 minutes by car away from the airport! The hotel is old style Hawaiian and beautiful! There is a beautiful garden area to relax around the pool or on lanai. Additionally,there are shops,entertainment,restaurants and the beach within walking distance! I will definitely make White Sands my go to place when I return!

We had a very enjoyable stay. Live music in the evenings were delightful. Even though we didn’t have a coffee pot in the room coffee was available at the front desk. The food was very good. Hotel beds were comfortable and room was very clean. Showers were small but it wasn’t a big deal! Overall great stay!!
