December 2018 stay nice clean one bedroom of the Kuhio Ave. We have stayed in several places in the past in Waikiki and believe, it's a very decent place in comparison to other locations. The place is located in 3 story apartment complex on the second floor. The complex doesn't have a pool, however, for us, it was not an issue even with 2 youngters. ABC store is about 2 minutes away walk and Food Pantry is about 5 minute walk.

Great location in Waikiki Great, affordable option in Waikiki. Close to everything. Clean apartment, well stocked kitchen. Great to have beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkelling equipment available; however the bin was in disarray, completely disorganized and some equipment had missing pieces (umbrella stand) — needs to be organized. Floor fan in living room needed to be “helped” in order to function properly (shouldn’t have to manipulate fan blades to get it running). Also, light in bathroon (over shower and toilet area) did not work — this should be checked prior to guests checking in.

1 week rental Overall unit not too bad. However,posted picture definitely makes unit look better than it actually is. They advertise beach chairs for use but we never saw anything usable the whole week nor did any other tenants. There was 1 rusted up small beach chair and 1 stadium bag chair that definitely could not be used at the beach. We had to buy 2 chairs. We emailed to management and the lady said she would check with manager and get back to us about reimbursement. We never heard back. Very poor customer service. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, January 9, 2017 Our Royal Moana beach gear is available as an amenity for our guest if available on a first come first serve basis.

Long vacation on Oahu. Second time using the Royal Moana for an extended vacation in Hawaii. The overall complex has deteriorated just a little from last year. Entry gate and stairs railing are rusted and more grime that's not getting cleaned off of the walk and stairs. We had to go get cake and cooking pans, vegetable pealer etc as the units don't seem to be stocked against a checklist at all. But overall clean and affordable in a location that's not far from it all. There are HPD cars in the area mutiple times for fights/arguments as well as common thieves that work day and night to steal bikes, mopeds etc.

A hidden gem! My husband and I stayed for 9 nights at the Royal Moana apartments. We had a lovley unit on the second floor. Overall, it was a great little spot to stay and very good value for money. The apartment was very clean with plenty of linen. It was fully self conained and we had everything we needed to cook our own meals which saved us a lot of money. The location was fantastic, close to the beach, local attractions and supermarket.

Royal Moana 1 BD On the 2nd Floor. We would highly recommend Alii Beach Rentals. The property description was accurate regarding the location and layout and cleanliness.We thought it could use a new seal on the oven and maybe some kind of a drying rack in the bathroom as there was a empty space behind the door, being a 7 unit complex it could use a barbecue in the common area. We had a few small issues but one call to the maintenance man (Mike) he was there really quick and everything was fixed. There was also a little convenience store right next door with really nice friendly owners. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to others.

Royal Moana 1 BR We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Moana. The rooms were clean and staff was very organized. Having a kitchen in the unit was extremely beneficial to keep costs down, and they provided ample amount of dishes, pots/ pans etc. We also liked the fact that there was beach equipment free to use such as boogie boards, snorkel gear, umbrellas, and chairs. <br/>The location was great and super close to everything, although if you are a light sleeper or traveling with an infant it might not be the best option. The room is located off a moderately busy road so you could hear a good amount of noise in the room (cars driving by, people talking, fireworks). <br/>The only real downside to the room is that the a/c unit was located in the main space, so If you shut the pocket doors it would get pretty hot in the bedroom so you might have to choose between privacy and staying cool. <br/>All in all it was a great stay and I would recommend the room. We have stayed in rooms with this company twice now, and I honestly don&#x2019;t think I&#x2019;d book a vacation rental through any other company while in Hawaii. Their rooms are by far the best bang for your buck.

Royal Moana Review This condo is definitely a good deal. For the price, you have everything from rice cooker, hair dryer, microwave, washer dryer, utensils. Everything we needed for weeks stay was there. It was clean and Dennis the guy we met that cleaned the outside was very helpful and friendly. I stayed with my boyfriend and I believe the space in the condo could fit 2 more people since there is an extra bed. It was so close to the beach (about 5 minutes tops) and very close to shopping, food and the bus stop. That was very important to us since we only had a car for half of our trip. The bus stop was literally 3-5 minute walk away. My bf enjoyed the stay also. We normally go for hotels and he was really happy have a full functioning kitchen, we've saved a lot of money cooking for breakfast every day!

Ali Beach Rentals - Walikiki The condo was excellent value, and the staff were very helpful; the maintenance was also excellent, and quick to answer any questions or problems. They even let us stay until 6 pm the day we checked out due to our late evening flight, which greatly assisted us, as we would have had a very long day that day. The parking was also very good, in the same building area. We would definitely rent again from the same company as they have other condos available in Hawaii.

Disappointing Was advertised as a one-bedroom condo, but actually is a converted studio with sliding doors to separate bedroom from kitchen. The sliding doors stick and don't close properly.

Doors to lanai need to have heavy curtains installed to block out bright street lights at night. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, July 31, 2015 Thanks for your input.

This allowed us to enjoy our evenings after he fell asleep without waking him. The condo is well-stocked and there are boogie boards, air mattresses and noodles to take to the beach, which we really appreciated. The only negative is that the neighbourhood isn't the best. Although you're just steps from the main tourist drag, there were people loitering around the building and the police had to come by the house twice during our three-day stay. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Friday, July 31, 2015 We're so happy you enjoyed your stay! You can't beat Royal Moana for value especially for families. You're right... the luxury hotels are steps away from Royal Moana and those luxury hotels get their fair share of cops cars out front as well. Frankly I like seeing them around... the Honolulu police do a great job of keeping Waikiki safe. Hope to have you back soon. ALOHA!

Neat condo close to everything We loved the condo we stayed in Hunulolo. It's close to the Wakiki beach. Shopping street and food street in walking distance. The room is small but we didn't feel crowed at all. We will recommend to our friends the parking is a big issue. We were so lucky to get a temp parking lot when a LLC was working but finished. I don't think we should have rented a car at all. It's so continent to get a shuttle from airport.

Hawaii Summer vacation 2015 We enjoyed our stay at Alii beach rental Liliuokalani, the location is very good not far from the beach, bus and restaurants. The whole family enjoyed wet'n wild water park, we didn't like the aqua submarine there weren't many fish to see the pictures they show us are very colourful but when you go under water ther's not much to see.We are from French Polynesia Tahiti where the colours are beautiful. If you are looking for a very good chinese restaurant sea food village in Waikiki is the place to be. Cheese cake factory is also an excellent restaurant but we found hard rock cafe expensive the food is better at California Pizza Kitchen and it's much cheaper.

A convenient Option Stayed 11 nights. Property location is central to everything. Clean neat and basic accommodation with the convenience of being able to cook your own meals. As we were out and about every day size was perfect for 2 people. Stair access only so glad we were in Unit 202, only 1 flight. Access via locked gates provided added security. A bit noisy with traffic noise but to be expected in Waikiki. Easy access to The Bus and beach.

Great small apartment Our family of 3 had a great time in Royal Moana 202 for 2 weeks. It had everything we needed. Though we never cooked anything while staying here we did use the large fridge to store our breakfast items and drinks etc. The apartment was clean on arrival and everthing was as stated in the advertisement. It was in a great location to walk to the beach,not to far while carrying beach chairs, towels etc. My only complaint would be the outside noise. The sliding balcony doors are not double glazed so you could hear every car,person,truck go past at all hours of the day and night. I had to sleep with ear plugs in the whole time. Aside from that we had a wonderful stay. Had to get maintaince to change a couple of external lights that werent working when we first arrived.

Nice Rental, no parking We had a good time at the Royal Moana last week. We traveled for business and were able to sleep well during our stay.<br/><br/>ONly two concerns: first, the AC unit was in the kitchen, but with three of us we had the 'master' bedroom doors closed at night. Consequently the kitchen/bathroom area was cool, but the bedroom got hot. <br/>Secondly, there aren't enough parking spaces at the apartment complex to accommodate all guests/tenants. We were able to park at a nearby facility, but it was expensive as all parking in Waikiki is. At other Alii locations (Royal Kuhio for example), the parking space comes with the room. For a business traveler making every dollar count, this is very valuable.<br/>Overall I'd approve of the room and would stay there again, though I'd want to stay at one of the Ali'i condos at the Royal Kuhio if I had the choice. But a nice place regardless.

The apartment was very clean with plenty of linen. It was fully self conained and we had everything we needed to cook our own meals which saved us a lot of money. The location was fantastic, close to the beach, local attractions and supermarket. The staff are great and very helpful especially Mike the maintenance guy who was on hand to help us access the apartment when we arrived earlier than expected. We will definitely stay here again should we return to Hawaii and highly recommend it for those travelling on a budget.

Overall unit not too bad. However,posted picture definitely makes unit look better than it actually is. They advertise beach chairs for use but we never saw anything usable the whole week nor did any other tenants. There was 1 rusted up small beach chair and 1 stadium bag chair that definitely could not be used at the beach. We had to buy 2 chairs. We emailed to management and the lady said she would check with manager and get back to us about reimbursement. We never heard back. Very poor customer service.

Second time using the Royal Moana for an extended vacation in Hawaii. The overall complex has deteriorated just a little from last year. Entry gate and stairs railing are rusted and more grime that's not getting cleaned off of the walk and stairs. We had to go get cake and cooking pans, vegetable pealer etc as the units don't seem to be stocked against a checklist at all. But overall clean and affordable in a location that's not far from it all. There are HPD cars in the area mutiple times for fights/arguments as well as common thieves that work day and night to steal bikes, mopeds etc.

We had a good time at the Royal Moana last week. We traveled for business and were able to sleep well during our stay.<br/><br/>ONly two concerns: first, the AC unit was in the kitchen, but with three of us we had the 'master' bedroom doors closed at night. Consequently the kitchen/bathroom area was cool, but the bedroom got hot. <br/>Secondly, there aren't enough parking spaces at the apartment complex to accommodate all guests/tenants. We were able to park at a nearby facility, but it was expensive as all parking in Waikiki is. At other Alii locations (Royal Kuhio for example), the parking space comes with the room. For a business traveler making every dollar count, this is very valuable.<br/>Overall I'd approve of the room and would stay there again, though I'd want to stay at one of the Ali'i condos at the Royal Kuhio if I had the choice. But a nice place regardless.

The location - a few blocks from the beach and also a block or two from the lagoon on the other side - is great, and it's certainly the best deal in Waikiki. Note too that the section of the beach closest to the property is sheltered by two jetties so it's perfect for families with younger kids who don't want to worry about too many waves. The property and everything in it were in great shape. Two issues to be aware of: 1) it can get a little noisy being so close to ground level and having buses and trucks cruising by at almost all hours; and 2) the bedroom is separated from the living area and kitchen by sliding doors, so the noise between the rooms could be an issue. Our little one is a deep sleeper so neither issue really bothered us, but I thought I'd flag these for others.

The unit is in a great location and it was wonderful to have my own parking! Some points that I would make as to making it better... arrange the furniture better. Cant see the TV unless in the bedroom, couch in wrong place to watch tv. couch and chair not comfortable. the hair dryer id not work.<br/>You also need to supply kleenex in the bathroom.<br/>Other then those few commments, the place is great! I will definitely stay their again on our next trip to Honolulu !

We had a really great time! I have already recommended Alii Beach Rentals to friends. Thanks to Shelly for being so helpful and available. We hope to come back again.

Although the property was nice and clean, it had a great deal of traffic noise, prohibiting opening the windows. This meant that the a/c had to be on all the time, which added to the noise.

Excellent location to the beach and shopping. A street number needs to be displayed on the building to assist shuttle drivers of the location. The kitchen could use an additional small square table as the round table was uncomfortable for eating or playing cards.

This is a perfect place to stay. Very, very good price for the awesome location in downtown Waikiki. It is also very clean and has a full kitchen so you can save some money if you wanna eat in. I would recommend this place to anyone. I'm from Hawaii and like the feel of a nice condo instead of staying at a touristy hotel. A big mahalo to all the staff! Aloha.

It was very good. <br/>I said that a friend wanted to use it again. <br/>As for what was not good, a dish was dirty. <br/>The paper diaper of the person who used it before was in the trash box of the rest room. <br/>There are not words other than it. <br/>Thank you.

The condo provided everything we needed in a great location. Just a few steps away from the beach, it was quiet and relaxing when we returned from the beach - definitely a great choice. Recommendation: provide an opportunity to recycle bottles, can, and possibly even paper.

My friends and I were on a budgeted trip and we came across this place that was a lot more affordable than most of the hotels we were looking at in the area. At first I wasn't sure about it because I've never stayed at a vacation rental place before and I didn't know if the place was reliable/safe or not. Then I gave the listing contact, Kai a call before my trip and he turned out to be extremely friendly and more than helpful. <br/><br/>When I finally arrived, the place was a pleasant surprise. The condo was beautiful, very well kept, and most importantly, close to everything. This was important to the group I was travelling with because we were not planning on renting a car and we needed to get to places on foot or by bus. Turns out to be an unnecessary worry because we were a 2 minute walk from a major bus stop and a 3 minute walk from the main strip where all the excitement takes place. <br/><br/>Part way through the trip however, my group decided to rent a car, which meant that we needed to rent addition

Parking situation is not great.<br/>Street noise is excessive at times.<br/>Condo inside is beautiful and functional. A pool would be nice, but then price reflects amenities.<br/><br/>Overall a great value, good location and very nice unit. Yes, I would recommend it to others and will likely return.<br/>

Tropical Royal Moana 1BR Condo VERY Close Walk to Beaches, Shopping, Dining

ID 225815 - 3 beds (1 queen and 2 single). Base rent is for 4 occupants.
Royal Moana Vacation Rentals
Enjoy the best Hawaii has to offer in this beautiful one bedroom condo near the ocean.

The Royal Moana is one of the best values in Waikiki and ranks among the highest in guest satisfaction. Now you don’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability. Located at 240 Liliuokalani Ave. The Royal Moana is a few minutes walk to world class Waikiki beaches and was recently remodeled with the sole purpose of providing you a luxurious yet economical alternative to a hotel room. Ask yourself, why would I ever rent a room when I can rent a home As you can see in the amenities, we have gone to great lengths to make sure these condos are truly your home away from home.

All the Royal Maona condos have fully equipped kitchens ready to cook and eat. Feedback from our guests show that this is one of the best ways to take control of your vacation budget. Preparing meals instead of eating out three times a day can save an average of $100 a day per couple. This is a must for the budget minded traveler.

The sleeping arrangements are very convenient with a queen bed in the bedroom along with a trundle day bed (2 twin beds or convert to one king bed) in the living area. Leave the bedroom pocket doors open for extra space or shut them for a private bedroom.

Our staff prides themselves in the beautiful condition of this property. “Luxurious” is the best way to describe a Royal Moana condo. We spared no expense on remodeling every unit with marble floors, and granite countertops throughout. Tasteful wood furnishings were shipped straight from Indonesia. As you can see by the photos these condos are beautiful.

Ready for the beach Take advantage of the Royal Moana's complimentary beach gear. We provide snorkel sets, beach umbrellas, premium beach chairs, and full size boogie boards to make your days at the beach just that much more enjoyable. Don't get ripped off by renting these items by the hour at the beach. Stay at the Royal Moana and have it included.

Location is everything.

The Royal Moana is a VERY short walk to:

- Tons of Beaches: Waikiki Beach, Kuhio Beach, Canoes Beach, and many more.

- World Class Dining: Duke’s Restaurant, Hy’s Steakhouse, Cheescake Factory, and countless more.

- Amazing Shopping: International Marketplace, Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Coach, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and plenty more.

- Activities: Surfing, Honolulu Zoo, Night-life, Hula Shows, Waikiki Aquarium, Catamaran rides, outrigger canoe rides, and much more.

Let us show you what our increasing number of repeat guests have experienced... Value and the Aloha Spirit.

Note: Make sure everyone in your party is able to go up and down steps. It is required to get into this condo.

Note: Please let us know if you would like to have a reserved parking space added to your reservation for $15/day. This is recommended since street parking is almost impossible to find.
