Waikiki is much more built up than we expected, although to be honest I don’t know what we expected, it is after all the tourist capital of Hawaii with over 6 million visitors a year.
We stayed at the Best Western Plus Coconut Waikiki on Lewers Street,
the trip advisor reviews were right, it’s a lovely hotel, very clean, offers a nice breakfast each morning, has really friendly staff and is within easy walking distance of everything Waikiki has to offer.
Although we’d booked a city view room, from our balcony on one side we had a view of the Ala Wai Canal and the mountains,
on the other side we could see the ocean, albeit in the distance.
If we ever go to Waikiki again, we’d definitely stay here.
The only thing that did drive me mad was a Waikiki wide problem with pigeons, if you so much as sat outside with a coffee or anything vaguely resembling food you were surrounded by the pesky things.
Have fun, we are!
