The following review(s) were provided by the property manager.

Unfulfilled Expectations We were expecting much more based on the property description and pictures. The furniture was older and the condo condition was much poorer than advertised. The cleaning was substandard as there was fecal matter and stains left in the toilet, holes in the bedsheets, food stuffs left in the tea kettle, curtains were broken, living room rug was dirty, the bathroom mat smelled of urine and had to be put outside and the ping pong and pool tables were old and unusable. Someone came to clean the toilet after we initially called, but a follow up email telling management about these issues went unanswered. Very disappointed. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, October 13, 2017 Where we failed you Mr. Phillips, we are glad to say we succeeded before you departed. New blackout curtains in bedroom, new curtain track in living room. Since you have left we have added a 50" TV, new dining table, and new linens!! We also have a new cleaning company in this building too! We will get your trust back!

Disappointed The location is amazing. <br/>Condo Royal Kuhio unit 2012 is dated, filthy and has MOLD in the AC unit in the living room. The bedsheets had hair, the dining chairs were filthy and stained, same for the rug and couch, the kitchen cupboards were sticky, the dishes were not clean, the non stick pots and pans were scratched (so not safe to use). We did get our AC unit changed, but there was mold all around the AC unit. Total health hazard, we did not use the AC and didn't bother calling for maintenance again. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, August 28, 2017 The a/c unit was serviced and there was no mold. It was some built up Waikiki dust that was thoroughly cleaned. Thank you for the stay and review!

This unit is on the ocean side, so it was good to see a rainbow every morning.

18 nights in waikiki We recently stated 18 nights in condo 2012. It was a great space, pleanty of room for miss 7 and miss 10. Bus stops right outside, 5 min walk to the beach. Everything you need to cook and live comfortably. Condo was very clean when we arrived. Had the wrong key and a staff member was very quick to arrive and give us the correct key. I would suggest eyemasks and ear plugs as it's very light and loads of street noise. Air con is very effective but loud. Lovely to watch the ocean and surfers on the balcony each morning. Pool was fantastic. A great holiday.

Good Stay Follow instructions in detail to find key to the unit. The unit was clean and met our needs. The kitchen counters could use an update (chipped top) but had everything needed. Nice to have a full kitchen. Enjoyed the view. There is a lot of night noise in waikiki so be prepared. <br/>bottom line is the unit more than suited our needs and enjoyed interacting with Alii Beach Rentals prior to arrival.

Ok for the price The booking process was great but the condo and location left a lot to be desired. While we were close to a lot of things, we also had a LOT of outside noise that went into the wee hours of the morning. The condo had a few things that needed repair and while it was mostly clean, could use some updating. There was no dresser storage (one 2 drawer nightstand that was not functional) and due to bed placement, only one closet was really accessible. Called manager to deal with a fridge issue and it seemed the maintenance guy came up while we were gone and resolved it. Worked for our visit this time but not likely we'd stay there again. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, June 30, 2017 As a company sound like we did a pretty good job here, but maybe guest expected a quiet tranquil experience better suited for outside of Waikiki. The storage issues can be looked at too, thank you!

Not a bad location Unfortunately the first impression is not great. The carpet in the hallway outside the condo is very dirty. The curtains in the bedroom of the condo are disgusting - I had seen this comment on previous reviews but hoped that it would have been taken care of - clearly not. The sofa bed is NOT comfortable. When we arrived we couldn't get the internet or TV to work. Maintenance was supposed to be coming but got tired of waiting and fixed ourselves. Discovered that cables had been disconnected. 2 decent chairs on lanai and 2 very cheap, uncomfortable chairs - one with a crack in the back. Check in and check out were simple - once we finally found the right lock box. Yes, I would recommend but would make them aware of the issues as described as well as warning them of the noise level - to be expected I guess anywhere in busy Waikiki! Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, April 16, 2017 Working with building management is always an uphill battle, but we will keep on it. We may have to take our own vacuums out into the hallway to clean up building carpet!

Location, Ocean View, and Security VIEW:<br/>The ocean view room was great! There is no comparison when one can wake up to the blue ocean every morning and enjoy a cup of tea while watching the surfers catch a wave.<br/>UNIT:<br/>The unit is clean, the bed is comfortable, the sofa is cozy, the kitchenwares are nice, the kitchen amenities are fully functional, and the linens are clean. The counter top, although easy to clean, could've used some updating. The curtains also need new do, it looks a bit tired. The ACs are loud! however, I find it to be a blessing because it covers the Waikiki night brawl. <br/>BUILDING AND AMENITIES:<br/>The building is very secure and there is always a security guard on duty.<br/>The lobby feels open and there are a lot of places to sit. The parking garage is big and the assigned parking was super convenience.<br/>The laundry facility opens early and closes late. There is laundry soap dispenser for a fee; however, there is no coin exchange in the laundry area. <br/>The pool is small but serves a purpose. There is a bus stop in front of the building, convenience for guests without a vehicle. <br/>LOCATION:<br/>It is in the center of it all and it is walking distance to the beach, bars, shopping, and restaurants. <br/>ALII STAFF:<br/>Marvelous! the response to any questions and requests is addressed in a very timely manner! <br/>Overall, it was a great experience considering all of the above! and I'll definitely return to this unit in the future.

Excellent location We stayed for 10 nights in December 2015,the condo is in a great location , close to pubs , food , and the beach is a short stroll . The 2 queen beds made it easy for our 7 year old to be close to us and the 16 year old on the fold up sofa in the lounge.The kitchen had most things required to cook.Corner condo so you have views out the front towards the beach and out towards Honolulu. The tolit and shower area is very small .The main bedroom a/c is very rattly all night long. Lots of street noise even though you are 20 floors up. Could hear over the a/c and all windows shut. The condo is a little old and has wear in places but comfortable enough for our family.The parking elevator would not go to floor 7 for some reason so had to come down to lobby. Great wifi. Great free parking as we had a rental car.The Udon noodle place just down the street is excellent and there is a line up every day.Mcdonalds across the road and ABC stores every where for stocking up on alcohol and food.The food pantry is good just down the street on the same side. Also the food at the cheesecake factory is excellent and huge.We would recommend this property to families as you can walk everywhere.<br/>Would recommend a new a/c in the main bedroom and new curtains,gets a little light at night.<br/>Overall we enjoyed staying here and would return again if we came to Hawaii in the future.

Royal kuhio 2012 Nice location-easy walking with the beach close by. The condo was clean but lacked furniture The 3 beds were comfortable-it would have been nice to have a dresser in the room with storage to unpack our suitcases. The living room had only one sofa-we managed to squeeze 3 adults on but there was no seating for the 4 of us. The kitchen table could use updating as there were 3 chairs that matched(seats were able to lift off) and one chair that didn't match. Also no coffee table so we moved a side table to use. Curtains in bedroom need to be replaced as well as the air conditioning unit is very loud. It was nice to have a kitchen but would be nice to have a few more plates(only 4) so that we didn't need to wash after each meal. Also no drinking glasses so we purchased our own.Lanais chairs were uncomfortable and not sturdy for adults- nice ocean view. Property management company was great-very helpful and accommodating-thank you Chloe! Was a comfortable unit but could be so much more with very little effort. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, April 11, 2016 We can learn form this! We think additional seat, aside from dining table chairs, might make the living room tight, but we will look into it and a dresser in the bedroom could work.

Home away from the home The condo was nice and equipped with everything I needed. I liked that it was a block and half down from the beach and all the shopping areas. I was really happy that we had our own parking and wifi to download our pictures to send to our family and friends back home. The beds were comfortable and the place was very clean. The only minor problems we found is that the towel holder was coming off the wall, paint on the closet door was peeling off and one of the bed skirts from one of the beds was dirty. I'm a clean freak so I really noticed it. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Beautiful Hawaiian Getaway We were in Waikiki from November 23rd to November 27th and stayed at the Royal Kuhio #2012. We had a great time! The check in process was seamless; the condo was as advertised and photographed. We were very pleased with the unit and the building as a whole. The location was in the heart of Waikiki. We had a private parking space for our car rental, it was like having our very own condo in the heart of Waikiki and it was nice not to be staying in a hotel and not being interrupted by the front desk, housekeeping, etc. There are no frills to this apartment, so if you want luxury, this is not for you. We travelled with 2 children and we were more than comfortable and had much more room than a hotel for a fraction of the price. The unit was clean and had a full kitchen with everything we needed, and the view was amazing from every window! We will definitely be back to this unit and will from now on get a vacation rental instead of a hotel.

Hawaii visit The picture here is much brighter than the property itself. When you walk through the lobby it is very nice. Once I was in my room not bad but not as nice it was okay. The bathroom was not very big. The condo itself could stand to have the paint re-freshened. I think with some minor touch this could be a great spot to get away to. The management company was great. I just think Hotel life is better for me. Would I try it again some other time I probably would.

Sad Condo I was told by Ali'i beach rentals that this unit was clean and updated, well it was not. It is a beat up old dirty neglected condo. We did not even have drinking glasses, however on the third day they did bring us some. I would be nice if these property managers walked through the units. I could go on but why. This part of Waikiki is EXTREMELY noisy which we knew ahead of time. I rented from Ali'i Beach Rentals a few years ago and that unit was also a dump. I would not recommend this unit unless dirt doesn't bother you.

Some suggestions Suggestions: replace the couch/sofa mattress in unit #2012. There is no cushioning. Laying down on it is like laying down directly on the springs themselves. Our 3rd guest had to sleep on top of the couch & was uncomfortable. The kitchen needs to be adequately stocked with more eating utensils, more cookware such as baking pans, frying pans, a salad bowl, cooking spoons, a cheese grater, a garlic press, a decent cutting board (without the heavy smell of curry). It was difficult to cook with the very limited provisions. It would've been nice to have supplied some basic cleaning supplies to be able to tidy up the unit. During our 14-day stay, we wanted be able to re-clean the tub, the bath/kitchen counters & sinks. We enjoyed the unit's location, the parking, the A/C, and the laundry facility. Ali'i Beach Rentals was very professional & we would use ABR's services again. However we would use a different condo property.

Honolulu I have been going to Honolulu for years. I think this will be my last! We found the accommodations of or condo enjoyable. Just a couple things could be improved. The cable T V was very hard to operate and the patio was not clean. I felt like I had to put my shoes on to go out side. Amenities in the kitchen were very sparse. The noise level is very loud, and will be for the next couple of years! They are building a new high rise across the street where the market place us to be. And another hotel 2 blocks the other direction. Lots of construction noise!

Great Place to Stay We booked this rental at the last minute after the first place we chose had problems with the reservation. We are glad this was the place we ended up staying at. With our family's food allergies it was great to have a full kitchen. The location was good, walking distance from the beach and shopping. We plan to stay at this location the next time we visit Hawaii.

Séjour apprécié Tout était parfait excepté le divan-lit qui ne devrait plus servir que de divan. La base qui supporte le matelas est brisée à de nombreux endroits et donc le matelas est plein de creux et surtout il comporte de nombreux ressorts qui pointent. Impossible de bien dormir là-dessus même si on met le matelas sur le sol. Heureusement, il y avait un matelas gonflabe et une pompe qui ont sauvé un peu la mise, car il reste que sur un matelas gonflé en caoutchouc, quand il fait chaud, on devient humide sur le côté collé dessus, malgré les draps. Aussi, 90 min d'attente à l'arrivée pour avoir la clef, car on nous avait donné le mauvais no de boîte à ouvrir.

The kitchen was not well stocked and only had one set of bath towels, that if you lost one was going to cost $15.00 a towel. My Mother used to get better quality towels in soap boxes. The location is great. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, November 17, 2015 We have a maintenance department to handle issues during guest stays.

Make sure elevators are working @ Royal Kuhio THIS REVIEW IS PRIMARILY ABOUT THE BUILDING AND NOT THE CONDO ITSELF!! I usually love staying @ the Royal Kuhio b/c of location and free parking. This time when I arrived there was only 1 (out of 3) working elevator for 31 floors. They are replacing them one @ a time but it takes 5 mo. and another elevator was having problems stopping @ particular levels. So there was a huge line to get on the elevator. (Had to wait 20 min one time). By the 3rd day of vacation they had 2 elevators going. The condo itself was awesome, great view. To sum things up I loved the condo, but will choose to stay @ different location over the next yr to avoid elevator issues.

The Perfect Vacay Getaway! The property management office responded to our reservation quickly. Self check-in was not too bad. Two things I would like to recommend on the check-in instruction would be 1) instructions to open our key lock was incorrect as it was listed on the instructions twice as different lock number. I was confused with which lock to open to obtain our key. 2) Instructions to get in the garage door with the key was incorrect comparing to opening the door to our elevator. If i remember correctly, to open garage door, the arrow sign was facing down. But to get into elevators and front door, the arrow should face up. We were stuck at the garage for quite some time trying to open up the door.<br/><br/>Overall experience was wondering. The location of the property was great. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfy. One thing I can recommend is the AC units in the living room and the bedroom are super loud and noisy. We were having hard time sleeping at night if we turn on the AC. <br/><br/>I would definitely go back and definitely refer our friends to stay on this property!<br/><br/> Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, November 17, 2015 The check in instructions have been corrected, thank you!

probably wouldn't stay here again The entire experience of this booking (booking online, smart phone app, picking up keys from lockbox) was great until we got into the unit itself. We walked in and there was a nasty smell that did not go away the entire week we were there. As we were looking at the place, I screamed, seeing a dead cockroach on the floor. We didn't bring along any beach towels as the app said over and over again that beach towels were provided; there were none to be seen. Luckily, there were plenty of ABC stores in the area and we were able to pick up some towels before heading to the beach. There also was no hair dryer in the unit as stated over and over again in their app and e-mail communications. I ended up having to leave for my Birthday dinner with my hair still wet as we didn't have time to go find a hair dryer before our dinner reservations; I was very disappointed at that point. Before our stay was over, we would also see another bug crawling on the kitchen counter and that smell!!! The views from the balcony would have been great if they weren't hidden by the taller buildings in the way so the view gets 4/10 rating. I think for the price we paid for this unit, we could have gotten something much better, closer to the water had we done our homework. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, September 11, 2015 Dearest past and possible future guest, we have a Guest Relations & Maintenance department that is available for any inconsistencies you may find at your arrival. A call to Guest Relations would have solved the beach towel issue and hair dryer immediately, we wish you would have reached out and we apologize that the unit was not ready for your arrival. Hawaii is a tropical climate and a cockroach may appear from time to time, and it was most likely dead due to the build pest control and it sounds like its working. We are not sure of the odor at this time, but the high-humidity has made everything very moist, but our cleaners are doing there best to keep things dry and smelling fresh!

The booking process was great but the condo and location left a lot to be desired. While we were close to a lot of things, we also had a LOT of outside noise that went into the wee hours of the morning. The condo had a few things that needed repair and while it was mostly clean, could use some updating. There was no dresser storage (one 2 drawer nightstand that was not functional) and due to bed placement, only one closet was really accessible. Called manager to deal with a fridge issue and it seemed the maintenance guy came up while we were gone and resolved it. Worked for our visit this time but not likely we'd stay there again.

When we arrived we couldn't get the internet or TV to work. Maintenance was supposed to be coming but got tired of waiting and fixed ourselves. Discovered that cables had been disconnected. 2 decent chairs on lanai and 2 very cheap, uncomfortable chairs - one with a crack in the back. Check in and check out were simple - once we finally found the right lock box.

The property management office responded to our reservation quickly. Self check-in was not too bad. Two things I would like to recommend on the check-in instruction would be 1) instructions to open our key lock was incorrect as it was listed on the instructions twice as different lock number. I was confused with which lock to open to obtain our key. 2) Instructions to get in the garage door with the key was incorrect comparing to opening the door to our elevator. If i remember correctly, to open garage door, the arrow sign was facing down. But to get into elevators and front door, the arrow should face up. We were stuck at the garage for quite some time trying to open up the door.<br/><br/>Overall experience was wondering. The location of the property was great. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfy. One thing I can recommend is the AC units in the living room and the bedroom are super loud and noisy. We were having hard time sleeping at night if we turn on the AC. <br/><br/>I would defini

Great location..bus right in front or free parking if you drive. Within walking distance of Ala Moana and not far to the beach. Nice view of downtown Waikiki and ocean from lanai. Check out Pho @ Little Saigon 3 doors down. BYO beach towels, snorkel gear and beach chairs.

This property is exactly what it is described as - Great amenities in the building and the condo itself. Perfect for our family of 5 and a fantastic location within walking distance to anything in Waikiki. Only one issue was the elevator repairs that were going on made the elevator waits REALLY long.

When we first came in, there were garbage left in the fridge so we had to clean it up ourselves, which was unpleasant experience, and some dead cockroaches were on the floor...<br/>The location was great but the elevator was old and had trouble all the time. Overall I think it is a good place, I just hope they could have cleaned up the room before we arrived.

Tout était parfait excepté le divan-lit qui ne devrait plus servir que de divan. La base qui supporte le matelas est brisée à de nombreux endroits et donc le matelas est plein de creux et surtout il comporte de nombreux ressorts qui pointent. Impossible de bien dormir là-dessus même si on met le matelas sur le sol. Heureusement, il y avait un matelas gonflabe et une pompe qui ont sauvé un peu la mise, car il reste que sur un matelas gonflé en caoutchouc, quand il fait chaud, on devient humide sur le côté collé dessus, malgré les draps. Aussi, 90 min d'attente à l'arrivée pour avoir la clef, car on nous avait donné le mauvais no de boîte à ouvrir.

Suggestions: replace the couch/sofa mattress in unit #2012. There is no cushioning. Laying down on it is like laying down directly on the springs themselves. Our 3rd guest had to sleep on top of the couch & was uncomfortable. The kitchen needs to be adequately stocked with more eating utensils, more cookware such as baking pans, frying pans, a salad bowl, cooking spoons, a cheese grater, a garlic press, a decent cutting board (without the heavy smell of curry). It was difficult to cook with the very limited provisions. It would've been nice to have supplied some basic cleaning supplies to be able to tidy up the unit. During our 14-day stay, we wanted be able to re-clean the tub, the bath/kitchen counters & sinks. We enjoyed the unit's location, the parking, the A/C, and the laundry facility. Ali'i Beach Rentals was very professional & we would use ABR's services again. However we would use a different condo property.

I have been going to Honolulu for years. I think this will be my last! We found the accommodations of or condo enjoyable. Just a couple things could be improved. The cable T V was very hard to operate and the patio was not clean. I felt like I had to put my shoes on to go out side. Amenities in the kitchen were very sparse. The noise level is very loud, and will be for the next couple of years! They are building a new high rise across the street where the market place us to be. And another hotel 2 blocks the other direction. Lots of construction noise!

We booked this rental at the last minute after the first place we chose had problems with the reservation. We are glad this was the place we ended up staying at. With our family's food allergies it was great to have a full kitchen. The location was good, walking distance from the beach and shopping. We plan to stay at this location the next time we visit Hawaii.
