The Sand Villa’s a modest high-rise hotel on a quiet side street about 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach—not particularly remarkable, but wallet-friendly and very presentable. Guest rooms are pleasant and clean—even lightly charming and contemporary—and some offer sweeping city or mountain views. The Sand Bar and Grill is good for casual dining and after-hours hanging out, but you’re also within a block from many other restaurants. The hotel’s best feature is definitely the swimming pool. Hidden in the back next to an area of walk-up guest rooms, the lagoon-like expanse of water is surrounded by palms and has a little island in the middle. Relatively quiet and peaceful, it’s perfect for both kids and couples. A free light breakfast is served here every morning. The hotel also offers around-the-clock valet parking, which is a nice surprise and a relief. I'd recommend trying Them Dining (yes, weird name...), which is sort of new on the property and tucked away near the pool. It's totally cute and much more intimate than the regular Sand Bar dining at the front of the hotel.

The first thing I noticed about the Sand Villa hotel was that the lobby seemed cluttered. It’s small but has a spa massage clinic next to the front desk and on the opposite side a restaurant called the Sand Bar and Grill. But this budget friendly hotel seems to be very popular since it was bustling with people, especially Japanese tourists. The rooms are currently being remodeled so the beds, and bathroom are new. The bathrooms have fancy Japanese toilets. The rooms feel cozy and clean. The hotel staff are very friendly here and accommodating. The pool is big! It is big enough to do laps in. There is also a hot tub and lots of chairs to lounge in. There's a very small fitness center near the showers next to the pool. I think only 3 people can work out in there at a time. The beach is within walking distance and only 2 blocks away.

Located along the polluted Ala Wai river, the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel is a pretty unremarkable high rise located two blocks from beautiful Waikiki Beach. This is a discount hotel with few amenities. There's a big pool, but it offers views of nothing but neighboring high rises. There's a fitness center, but it's equipped with just one treadmill, one bike, mats and lifting equipment. There's a restaurant just outside the lobby (Island Bar & Grill), but it's not really worth visiting when there are so many better, more thoughtfully designed eateries nearby. (On the plus side, the bar here is open 'til 4 a.m.). If you're planning to stay here, it's best to book early. The hotel offers an early bird special to guests who book at least 42 days in advance of the first night of their stay.

Located on Ala Wai Boulevard, this hotel has a big, open-air lobby, with a fresh, contemporary design and vintage John Kelly prints throughout. The spacious room was very nice with an updated design, while still retaining that traditional Hawaiiana charm. The corner lanai had fantastic views overlooking the Ala Wai Canal and the Koolau Mountains. They have onsite laundry facilities, an up-to-date fitness center, jacuzzi and an amazing, huge pool in a garden setting. The pool surroundings gave me a slightly European impression. There is complimentary internet access as well as breakfasts with a focus on healthier fare. Their Sand Bar & Grill is very nice, with inexpensive, great food. The staff is the best. The location is more relaxing and quiet, with the hustle and bustle in the heart of Waikiki just a few short blocks away.

This is the hotel that my Dad always stays at when he is town to visit me. The bar here serves foor until 4am and it is delicious! The hotel is very accomidating and upgraded my Dads room for no charge. It is only a short walk to the beach and less than a block away from the only gorcery store in Waikiki. Great place to stay and much less expensive than many of the bigger hotels nearby.
