The hotel service staff is on strike & it caused much stress due to the room being cleaned and not having the restaurant and bar availability. Really a shame!!

Due to the ongoing labor strike, conditions became unacceptable. I “paid” to have first rate room service that included towels & clean sheets at the minimum. In addition, the lovely pool was unusable due to strikers pounding drums & chanting with a megaphone only feet away. Additional expense & hassle accumulated by having to make reservations outside the affected area for all dining & beverages. This was supposed to be a vacation celebrating a 40 year anniversary. Extreme disappointment ensued. I do want to say the kind staff did the best they could under the circumstances – I hope to come back someday and actually experience the beauty of this very special hotel

Royal Hawaiian PARADICE

Pros: SERVICE as good as the Canlis restaurant here in Seattle.
Cons: Maybe take more care in breakfast and dinner snack selection some of the items were not really compatible with each other.(meat/cheese ?no bread?).
Location: Zoo, aquarium, shopping, parks and beaches all within walking distance.
Just got back in Seattle last night from Oahu. Weather OK hotel FANTASTIC. Have stayed there before and took a corner room with a clear view of ocean and Diamond Head with a wrap around deck. Room# 3011 Mailani tower complementary breakfast and evening snacks. The beach is the best in town service at hotel was incredible. The only problem is no alcoholic beverages served on the beach. Make sure to reserve the pink umbrellas # 11 or 12 directly in front of the Mai Tai Bar. Also, no food service is available at the tan umbrellas closest to the water. Will go back for sure.

Great location and beautiful hotel but...

Not included in the expensive daily resort fee is a lounge chair to sit on at the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas cost $20 each daily to use; a bit annoying to be nickeled and dimed at a “luxury” resort after you paid good value to stay there. :(
