Fodor's Expert Review Waikiki Sand Villa

2375 Ala Wai Blvd., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

Families and those looking for an economical rate without sacrificing proximity to Waikiki's beaches, dining, and shopping return to the Waikiki Sand Villa year after year. It's on the corner of Kaiulani Avenue and Ala Wai Boulevard, a three-block walk to restaurants and the beach. There's a high-rise tower and a three-story walkup building of studio accommodations with kitchenettes. Rooms are small but well planned. Corner deluxe units with lanai overlook Ala Wai Canal, the golf course, and the mountains. The Il Buco Wine Bar comes alive at night with a great mix of hotel guests and locals who like to hang out and "talk story." The pool area boasts a solar foot spa called an ashiyu (Japanese public bath) where up to eight people can relax and soak their feet in 100-degree water.
