Ants and Cockroaches

Pros: At a quick glance the rooms looked amazing, but after a closer look the walls were stained with bug splatter and hair.
Cons: fix the infestation situation
This was the second leg of our trip to Waikiki and second hotel. First leg hotel was in the heart of Waikiki and we were looking forward to the distance between by coming here. As the room on whole looks wonderful, fantastic view and great balcony space, I was a bit distracted by the ants and cockroaches. We informed the reception several times the there are any crawling out of the cracks in the shower and track their trail to behind the mirror and also through to the living room behind the tv stand and up to the sliding door, which someone from housekeeping came up to two different occasions to wipe them down, however they kept coming back. A few were also tracked over to the bed side of the room. Then a cockroach came out from behind the mirror somewhere. An email was sent to the GM of the hotel, but no response was given. It's as if no one cared about our discomfort.

Great Resort!!

I bought this 8 months in advance and hoped for the best...We got there and the people there were so nice and really took cared of my wife and I. The rooms are a little small, but they were perfect for us because we only use the room to sleep ;) Also the food at their resstaurants were in my opinion some of the best food in the whole Island...and trust me the locals know it too! I highly recommond this place and I know my wife and I will be staying here again!!

Quiet hotel on the beach

Pros: Quiet, excellent view of waikiki from diamond head end of
The New Otani Kaimana Beach is located on the Diamond Head end of the famous beach. We were rewarded with fabulous sunsets and beautiful views of Waikiki beach and its hotels. There was a daily $24 charge for valet parking which was worth it since parking in Waikiki is very limited. We spent a lot of time exploring the rest of Oahu Island but also easily walked to Waikiki's main strip. Our room was not large but adequate for the two of us. It was extremely clean and decorated in minimalist, contemporary Japanese taste. The balcony was an added bonus. Breakfast at the Hau Tree was too hearty for us. We could have shared one serving or just had coffee, fruit and toast.
