When you are in Hawaii, one place that you want to consider staying at is the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel in Honolulu. This hotel is just a couple of blocks from the world famous beaches of Waikiki.
Looking out the windows of the hotel, a guest can see the Ala Wai Canal on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Further off in the distance, the Diamond Head volcano can also be seen, which is the world's most well-known volcano, and it is inactive.
The hotel has 214 rooms of various sizes, including some with kitchenettes. It is considered to be in the mid-range of hotel prices. There is also a 70-foot outdoor swimming pool, which is one of the largest in the area.
When it comes to eating, there are several features of the hotel that make this a comfortable place. You can eat at the hotel's Sand Bar and Grill, or at the Iyasume Omusubi Japanese deli. These restaurants provide excellent snacks or meals when you are ready. Breakfast is complimentary - called a Wiki Wiki Breakfast. There is also a Coffee Shop, too.
An Internet / Business Center is available for those who need to stay in touch. Wireless Internet Service is also provided in the pool area, too, as well as having both wireless and wired access in every room. For those who like to stay in shape, there is a Fitness Center with modern equipment out near the pool.
The Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel is located in the famed Waikiki Beach area, which is on the south side of the island and on the edge of Honolulu. Because of its proximity to the beach - just three clocks away - guests of the hotel have easy access to this strip of land once known as the playground of Hawaiian royalty. A statue of the Hawaiian largely responsible for introducing surfing to the world - Duke Kahanamoku - is also there on the beach. He won Olympic gold in 1912 and 1920, and later went into acting in Hollywood.
With the hotel's 12-story structure, the view is excellent in the higher rooms. The best thing, of course, is to get down into the scenery and see what is there - personally. Across from the hotel - opposite the beach, is a large golf course - the 18-hole Ala Wai Golf Course. So, if you like to golf, you have easy access to the Course.
Many places for shopping are close enough to the hotel to be easily walked to, including some shopping centers and the International Market Place. Many other local shops are also nearby, and restaurants of various types of food, giving the visitors many things to see, taste, and experience.
