    Tiki styled facility

    I enjoyed my week at this facility, the hotel has a Polynesian show that is really nice. The rooms are a little small but are nice. Fantastic location and I really like the pool although it is small. I definitely recommend this hotel because it is in the perfect location. I hope to be able to return soon!

    Great location, but average room.

    This hotel is in a wonderful location, just a block from the beach. The downstairs lobby, bar and pool area is very pretty. Unfortunately, the room was a bit of a let down. Basic smallish room, at least the bed was comfortable and the aircon worked. Two of the 3 lamps in the room didn't work, and the other one was dodgy. Watch the bathroom door - they have the worst locks which in my room couldn't be opened again. Yep, locked in the bathroom for some time until I managed to get it open. Not impressed! And you'd expect a room at this price point to have more than a bath/shower combo with poor water pressure.

    Girls Trip

    My friend and I stayed eight nights at the PK. We had the best room on the 29th floor with a balcony and Ocean View. Everything was beautiful from the moment we walked into the open-air lobby. The breakfast buffet was amazing, eggs benedict every morning! I'd like to give a shout out to Charmaine our server for several days around the pool and her supervisor Chloe, the bar manager. Mike was our bartender several nights at the outside pool bar. Great conversations and lots of laughs. And the best Mai Tais! It was my friend's birthday and to our surprise when we return to the room one evening there was a bottle of champagne cookies fruit and Hawaiian sodas. I would definitely recommend staying here you are right in the middle of all the action and the beach is directly across the street. Thank you to all for the hospitality sincerely Julie and Arlene

    Great location though a little dated

    We just spent a week in this hotel, we have been to Honolulu approx 25 times over the years and this is our first stay in this hotel. The location is great, virtually across the road to the beach and next to the International Marketplace. We did have a city view room that had no balcony which was pretty average, quite small with just a queen bed which was pretty uncomfortabe....the mattress could do with an update! The pool itself is fine but you need to wear shoes from your sun lounge to the pool edge as the slate is BURNING HOT! My husband made the mistake of walking barefoot across on his first dip and actually ended up with a blister on the bottom of his foot! The staff were all lovely. The resort fee is a bit steep at USD36 per day but that did include water bottles daily, fruit poolside, a GoPro to use for 1 day, Wifi throughout the premises and Tommy Bahamabeach chairs (the Rolls Royce of beach chairs) that you could borrow to take to the beach for the day. I would probably stay again but would definitely get a room with a pool view balcony. We loved the nightly entertainment as well, each night in the pool area until 830pm.

    Very disappointed when you see the hotels surrounding this one and compare. Arrived late at night to be kept waiting in the reception for 20 minutes offered an upgrade to a room with a pool view, given the keys to find the room hadn’t even been cleaned when we walked in. Given the keys to the another room with a pool view which definitely wasn’t up to Marriott standards as you can see from the pictures staff around the pool only interested in themselves and found it a chore to be serving you. Able to borrow chairs and towels to take down to the beach which was a nice touch.
