What Past Guests Are Saying
SA, TX, United States
The master bedroom bed was too small. There was no air conditioning, and sometimes it was needed.
Great location, perfect for single parents!
I stayed here with my teenage son and his buddy - the fact that the 2nd bedroom had 2 single beds was perfect!
The location was great as we could walk down to the beach easily, and its really easy to get in and out of with a car. the fact that the parking spot is included was a BIG bonus.
if you are looking for a high end or fancy condo - this is not for you. It's a basic condo with all the things you need for a week or two on vacation.
To a previous reviewer, yes, it was a bit windy on the 24th floor and the windows made some noise, but so what? we opened them a bit and the noise stopped and we had a great breeze in the condo - loved it!
NOTE: I would likely not stay here with a spouse/partner as the bed was not what I would consider ideal for two people, and the condo is not set up to be romantic or fussy. But having said that, if you are on a budget and both of you are average size (for the bed) - go for it!
This condo was a great value and I would definitly stay here again.

The floors needs to be clean better it was stick . Bathroom has mild drew and bed sheets need to be clean or replace looks really old has a odor other wise everything was ok for a week vacation .

Property was about 15 minutes from Waikiki beach. The view was nice. The condition of the actual apartment was outdated, old and needs updating. I was not happy with the fact no information was given to me prior to arriving from the property management so I had to struggle once I got there to find how to get into the room. Never was provided information for the internet in the room or about the gift package left on the table (no papers saying there was a charge for it or not so we left it alone). Overall satisfied but don't expect luxury.

Great location, great price, clean, would stay again
From the get go, I was a little weary after reading some not-so-positive reviews but I think people are expecting too much from a rare $170/nt 2 bedroom unit right in Waikiki.
Hawaii Paradise Retreats' email response has been hit and miss. Some emails got answered right away, some took 2-3 emails, and some were just completely ignored. Worst of all, I had 2 pack and plays reserved, and reassured they'd be ready at the apartment upon our arrival. However, they were not. To their credit, they had a staff member personally deliver them, but I had to wait 30 minutes with 3 cranky kids waiting in the car.
The apartment itself was generally clean, the linens were severely outdated, and the beds were creaky but comfortable.
Light sleepers might have trouble getting over the noise as the lack of A/C means you have to leave the windows open. For us, not a problem (plus the breeze was especially nice) but I swear every 30 mins to an hour past midnight, a police car with sirens a blazin' is screaming down Ala Wai Blvd and it gets LOUD. Also there are no bug screens but being on the 24th floor, it was never a problem (plus in Waikiki you'll see way more pesky pigeons than bugs).
Some highlights are the very thoughtfully equipped kitchen (with extras like a rice cooker, blender, etc..) and the local cable TV is amazing with it's myriad of channels.
All in all, I would definitely come back. My family agrees this place actually looks BETTER than the pictures (very rare LOL). The key is.. Consider the price you're paying and keep your expectations, and this place will exceed it all.

Good but not great
Great location, lovely view, clean, but very old furniture and bathroom. Had to fix toilet myself. Biggest issue is the complete lack of communication from the managing landlords. We had to follow up SO many times to even confirm our booking, then when promised that we have got the booking back in April for our September stay - we made contact again in early August, only to be told they don't have our reservation. Then they find it but don't tell us, then they take out our deposit but don't confirm that in writing.
Then we get there and are told to call a number - from where? We've just arrived late at night, there are pay phones but we don't get given coins when we swap money over. Thankfully Roberts Hawaii have fantastic transport staff who helped us out.
Free wi-fi was great, but had to figure out myself how to join since their instructions were completely inaccurate.
Hired a car, no confirmation given that there is an available car space. We did have to fix the landline phone up (not connected) and thankfully we were given the number as they were helpful once we were there - but it took multiple phone calls over the week.
I love Hawaii, but not sure if I'd come back to this place, despite it being one of the few two bedroom places available.

Nice stay at Waikiki
Condo is in very good location and has nice outlook from patio. Amenities are not new, but still good. Condo is clean and Paradise Retreats are professionals with customer oriented approach.
Great location ,just like home away from home! Highly recommended to everyone. Great company to deal with and I could just keep on going with all the great things about this place. We will be returning to the same place in the future . -Luis NJ 8/17 to 8/26

Secure, clean, well situated 2br condo at a good price
I just read Margaret P's review who stayed there in July and must concur with pretty much all of her comments. However I would like to add we felt the same about the wind on the first night and it did subside during our stay. To prevent the wind noise, rather than trying to block all the windows we found it best just to open the slats a little in the living room and kitchen to relieve the wind pressure and that pretty much solved the problem. Location was very good, just a short walk to the beaches and downtown area. Parking was included which was a plus. The only thing that I really suggest they change is the aluminum sliding doors in the tub/shower as they are old and they stick. They would be better off just putting in a shower curtain. We were a little hesitant to stay there based on the one poor review but afterwards were glad the place was improved and remodeled since. The building also has 24 hour security in the lobby and is mostly occupied by owners. We would definitely stay there again.

Nice teen family Waikiki Vacation
Great price for a Waikiki 2 BR unit, but the day we arrived happened to be very windy. I was told that location is ALWAYS very windy, and to our dismay, the horizontal slat windows in living room and bedrooms do not properly seal when shut tight and the wind was literally howling and whistling through the condo all day and night for most of our time there. Another resident of the building said all the condos there have the same problem. so we struggled with strategizing how to stop the howling, by stuffing the curtain into the corner, and opening the kitchen windows.
The place was nicely remodeled (with remodling materials still in cupboards), although crack in tile under sink, and old shower doors. a Mini laundry washer-dryer unit worked, but had a loud squeak in the dryer.
But after we got used to the noise of the wind, and the wind did calm somewhat, then it was a pleasant place to stay. The waist-high wall on the outdoor corridor was a bit freaky at 24 floors up. but looks like most of the buildings I could see had similar. We are not used to such unprotected heights, but that is city living.
We had just come from quiet, low-key, rainy Hilo/Big Island, so it was quite a contrast to come to noisy, Manhattan-density Waikiki. Since it was rather far from the beach, it was a nicer view over the quiet canal , every evening the local outrigger canoe teams did their practices there, and many people jogged and walked along the path. It is easy walking distance to teh main waikiki beaches, though, and many (often high priced) food stores. The unit did have everything we needed to cook with so that was nice, and plenty of TV and wifi, So that's what my family enjoyed the most. Also an easy drive to the rest of the island (after 5-10 minutes of heavy inner-city Waikiki traffic.
Unit does have a nice BBQ patio(but VERY windy) and pool area (not windy) on 6th floor.

I was very happy with the accommodations at this property. It is a security building that is clean and well maintained. The condo was breezy which kept it nice and cool. It was clean and had just been updated! We had a wonderful time and the management was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend!

Don't Stay Here!
The pictures are misleading. This unit was in disrepair with thick layers of dust and dirt on most surfaces. There were several louvered windows that had controls that were broken, several lamps that were missing light bulbs, the fans supplied and other appliances (toaster, washer & dryer, etc.) were rusted and not functioning at all or well, the smoke detector alarm went off and would not stop until we removed the battery, and all the drapes were torn, missing hooks and dirty. We called the agent when we arrived and was told "I haven't seen the unit." We even went out and bought a new shower head and installed it because the one there was unusable, and then took it with us when we left. We were so happy when our week was over so we could get out of there. We stayed at three other places in Waikiki and of those we can recommend Captain Cook Resorts and the Ala Moana Hotel Condos, but don't stay here. Aloha!
