After reading the reviews I was a little worried about staying at the Royal Kuhio and then once we saw the room it was fine. the rooms were super clean, clean sheets, no bugs and clean bathroom but needs a little interior updating, the lobby was a stinky but all we did was walk through to get outside, the location...

We just got done with a week long stay at Royal Kuhio through Vacation Internationale. It was nice. After reading the reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. There were no bugs and it was clean. The pool wasn't anything to get excited about and the keycards for getting through the lobby and into the parking garage took some getting used to...

The location of the Royal Kuhio is A++; you are within 2 blocks of the beach, great restaurants & shopping. Unfortunately the unit itself was very dated; shag carpet, dark & tacky kitchen cupboards ,noisy window air conditioners, lumpy mattresses, useless bath tub. From reading other reviews, all the units in this resort sound the same but if you don't...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and giving us the opportunity to clarify a few things to those who are reading. There is more than one company that own units at the Royal Kuhio. Each company is responsible for the renovation and up keep of their units. The timeshare units are owned by Vacation Internationale and...

The constant beeping is awful. There is a recycling collection point on royal Hawaiian st which faces royal kuhio condos ocean side. 3 mornings a week Monday being the worst, we were awoken with constant beeping from 4 am to 5:30 am. Someone needs to address this unnecessary noise at wee hours of the morning. There need to be noise...

We just returned from our 12 days in Waikiki and thoroughly enjoyed it! The 2 bed/2 bath condo was just what I wanted for our time with our Son and daughter-in-law. The condo was spacious and beautiful, and the views were amazing. Alii Beach Rental staff were very helpful and allowed us to send a few packages to their office....

Read carefully then make up your own mind as condo testimonials on several websites are not accurate (perhaps planted by condo owner and/mgt). CONDO: Unit 2403 (managed by ALII Beach Rentals), two weeks in early 2014. Below level of low grade old motel, barely equivocal lent to a two star shabby motel. Carpet heavily stained (they tried to remove some...

This hotel is good for the price I paid, somethings are out dated. I went for a late swim an to my surprise the pool wasn't heated not to mention the gym equipment was very out dated and just wasn't working. The unit was very nice clean. It would be more convenient if WiFi was in every unit its was...

You get what you pay for, and it was very responsible for Christmas - new year period. The apartment was tiny and old, pretty banged up, nothing matched, curtains hanging off, sliding door didn't lock, water pooled on the patio. Air con was very loud. We were comfortable but it wasn't delightful at all. Guest laundry is a bonus, gym...

You get what you pay for, however, this condo is sub-standard, even for a budget unit. We rented from Hawaiian Condo Resorts and this was the only condo available for the time period we needed. Pros: Comfortable, albeit small double bed Cons: Carpet was stained and dirty. Couch was stained and dirty. I covered the couch with towels for the...

The kitchen provided everything we needed, we never heard any activity from our neighbors, and it was very centrally located so that it was very easy to walk to everything. Beautiful view. Free parking, and they provided beach towels and umbrellas, which was very handy. The cons: the lobby smells like a sewer. It looks very clean, but we had...
