Why Dana Serino chose Waikiki

This is a fantastic building in Waikiki. It has a lot of amenities, and is close to the best swimming areas of Waikiki Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Everything in Waikiki, as well as the Zoo, Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park, is within walking distance from the building. And if you have a car to explore other areas of the island, the H1 freeway is a straight shot up Kapahulu Avenue, which is only 2 blocks away from The Banyan.

Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located Waikiki condo shows as advertised, and the couple of small issues we had were resolved quickly by the owners who were great! The building it is in is really showing it's age. We stayed for 18 days and unfortunately they decided to renovate the pool and hot tubs for 10 of those days. The lesson is, take the time to ask if there are going to be building renos or amenity shutdowns before you book. The last two days we were there, we had very loud drilling on our floor as they were upgrading Cable/Internet in all the rooms.

We were gone most days at some beach so this had very little impact on the enjoyment of our stay.

The other thing you want to know about the pool is that this is clearly a family oriented building, and while the amenities, pool, jacuzzi, BBQ, sports court, and playground are all great, they are almost 100% over run by children most of the time. We opted for the beach instead, for a little more serenity.

The unit is generously stocked with everything you need for the beach, for cooking in, and just relaxing in the room.

Note that laundry and BBQs cost extra to use. Bring quarters!

If you are renting a car as we did, you will love the secure parking and the parking pass that comes with this rental. We put all the beach stuff in the back of the SUV on day one and hit a different beach almost every day.

A previous reviewer had a complaint about the memory foam mattress. What you need to know is this mattress is very soft. So if you don't like soft mattresses, you won't like this. We had no issue with it at all.

The AC unit is quite noisy and runs non-stop. Again, we had no problem with it because we got used to it as background noise. There is a remote for it and it's easily shut down or the fan can be slowed to make it quieter.

There is great wireless internet and around 1000 channels on their Digital TV package including some on demand movie channels and so forth.

There was very little we missed during our stay except we would have liked a microwave cooking tray for bacon. I would also respectively suggest someone go through the room and remove some of the redundant items. There are 4 swiffers for example. LOL

This is not a high end suite, but it is decent, with everything you need, central to walk to everything, clean and well stocked. All in all, a very good value if you are looking for an affordable stay near Waikiki beach!

Lovely condo and owners but super noisy!

  • 3 of 5

The owners are wonderful and we're super easy to deal with. They renovated their condo and it's really awesome tho I found a few things that were odd.. leather couches in humid environments are not comfortable and a memory foam bed is basically the equivalent to a big fat sponge that you sweat in 😂 The Color and decor was lovely even if the bed was really uncomfortable. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed. My only issue is that the pool closes at 9 now, and there is always a lot of road noise from police cares and fire trucks going by 10-20 times a day. We've stayed at the Banyan 3 times and it was never this bad. Also the building alarms went off 3 times while

We were there, one in the middle of the night where we had to evacuate down the humid stairwell 10

Flights only to be told it was ok and walk back up.:. I felt sorry for those with guests who had walking disabilities or couldn't climb stairs. we were also plagued with noisy tenants above and below us who would sit in their lanai and smoke day and night (even tho it's illegal). We even found ashes on our lanai and someone's cigar. We complained to security but they had a chill approach to it. Much as we love Hawaii and the condo itself was nice, we decided our Waikiki Banyan days are over. It was more stressful staying indoors with stinky smoke

Coming in and noise from the police constantly with renovations happening and drilling sounds for 11 days. I do want to point out that the owners have nothing to do with the 3 star rating. They were very kind during the process but I never heard back from them after I left the condo and thought I lost something there... nothing big but I definitely am glad I paid a good rate for my condo through them vs going rate! These condos in this building are really not worth more than $120 a night.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

I can't say how great it was to work with the owners!! They are great and their condo was perfect for my wife and I. The condo is clean and in great condition. They have more than enough dishes, cup, pans, small appliances. The place was simply great. We would recommend it to anyone and we would definitely stay there again!!

Everything you need in one place

  • 5 of 5

This is actually our second stay in this condo. I just didn't get a chance to sit down and wrote the first review because we returned so quickly. This place has everything you need to enjoy yourself. Cooked in the condo several times and never had to adjust how I cooked because all utensils were there as well as all cookwear and dinnerware. There are nice chairs to take to the beach, snorkel gear, beach towels, toys for the kids, board games, TVs in both rooms, spices, condiments, extra sheets, plenty of bath towels and wash clothes, cleaning supplies if you have an accident or for long term stayers (we stayed a month each time) and the hardwood floors keep are beautiful. The location is hands down the best in the area conveniently located near the beach, zoo, shopping, restaurants, and activities. Owners will respond within minutes if there is a question, and made the trip so simple with their welcome email including all information needed a week prior to arrival. We are already booking our next stay and looking forward to staying here again.
