Ohana Waikiki Malia
- What's Included
On our 40th Wedding Anniversary ... we bought the package deal ... with flight and hotel. This hotel met our needs ... right in Kuhio Ave ... middle of many stores and eateries ... walking distance to Waikiki ... Although Ohana Hotel is on a busy street ... our room was quiet. The room had a balcony .. just nice to have coffee and McD .. rice and Spam or Portuguese sausage ... nice breakfast to start our walking tour ... and enjoy a nice breeze. They offered a complimentary bus that takes you to the Mall .. to connect to diff bus routes to view the island ... just take a ride around the island. In the evening ... just beautiful to take a walk ... burn off calories ... felt safe ... many tourist doing the same. Lots of ABC store to buy souveniers ..
The service manager Mr. Amante "Boyet" Castro was very helpful, very courteous, and very,very friendly.Every time we see him in the lobby. He made our stay in the hotel a very memorable one. Also, John ( I don't know his last name) from the Expedia local expert was very helpful in reserving our dinner/cruise on the Star of Honolulu. Me and my wife were supposed to go on Mon.11 April . We drove to the place, but because of traffic, we didn't make it on time and missed the boat. We told John about it and he made some calls and re-booked us for the cruise the next day. He made our day. Kudos to both Amante and John. A job very well done. MAHALO!!!!!.
Stayed just one night but it was a good choice. The front desk staff and bellman was very friendly and helpful. The room décor is a little dated but the room was very clean, AC cold, bathroom very clean provides shampoo, soap, shower cap..etc..love that it had a fridge...small balcony overlooking other buildings...didn't matter. Excellent internet connection. Girls and I had fun riding the double decker Pink Trolley to and from Ala Moana. IHOP restaurant right next to it. We had two meals there both meals were great. I would definitely stay here again.
Just got back from here. Excellent stay. This hotel is in the middle part of Waikiki. Not on the beach. About a block and a half. 10 minute walk to beach. I been to Waikiki many times. This is not a fancy hotel...and...to me..... does not have the greatest views since they are in the middle part and in between other hotels in front, behind etc. But my wife and I were not there for that. I have stayed in beach front hotels in Waikiki in the past.....many years ago.... but found that I was not at hotel enough to justify the cost. Anyway....the Ohana Waikiki Malia has it down perfectly. Great, GREAT.... friendly staff....from the front desk...to the tour promoter (not pushy)....comfortable rooms...excellent cleaning and maintenance room staff..etc. As far as the hotel itself...it is an older building....decor is older....but well kept. Building outside...looks clean...maybe it can use a new paint job! The color seemed kind of dull. Its sort of an off tan/yellow color. Anyway...no biggy. Pool area is almost non existent....but there is a small pool area ground level just past the front desk. Again...not very big. I did not use it. There is also an IHOP (International House of Pancakes) right next to hotel. Same building...and a bar....same building. Again, this is not a beach front hotel...some bar is inside....with no views. But..I did not use bar. But I did go to the IHOP once. All very good. Hotel over all is not too expensive, including the resort fee. (More on that below)....but I felt good about staying there. The one thing I am never happy, EVER, is the so call resort fee....which was $15.71 per day!! NO BUENO!! You'll be told about it when you arrive...and pay when you leave at check out. The fee generally pays for such things as beach towel, Internet access (internet access was EXCELLENT). At all times. I was on the 11th floor...maybe I was closer to the modem. haha! The fee also pays for.... Newspaper, Phone callsIn-room safe In-room coffee. I only used internet and newspaper. You would think the hotel price on the package is it...BUT NOPE!! I really wish hotels include this in the price...but I accounted for this prior to booking so I did not make a big deal. So please be aware that hotels charge extra. Its Hawaii....run by incompetent politicians who pass feel good laws so they get re-elected....so they feel good...but do they do any good? Nope! So.....businesses have to survive. That's my take. Anyway....I stayed for 8 nights so I added $125.68....again...I accounted for this. So the total fee was more than what your final receipt is. This last opinion has nothing to do with the way I felt about the hotel...and my review above...but the fee SHOULD BE PART OF THE PRICE. BTW....bed was comfortable and first time in a long time the pillows where great. For some reason pillows are never quite right for me at hotels. But this hotel...at least my room...was pretty good. I would stay here again...and recommend.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with kitchenette. Great layout as couches were actually single beds which my son used at night - but we had a tv in the bedroom and balcony was off this also, so he could sleep and us not disturb him. Looked like our room was in an older section of the hotel but it was very clean and comfortable. It's less than 10 minutes walk to beach and resort fees include free use of pink trolley bus (which was great to visit the huge shopping centre) and wifi. Pool area is small and no beach view so good if you're planning to be out and about a lot! We were only here for a 36 hour stopover from Sydney to Canada but would definitely stay again and recommend!
