On a corner of a quiet, canal-view side street, this ode to Midcentury Modern design carries through from the outside in. The Coconut was acquired in 2012 by Joie de Vivre hotels, who spruced up the space but kept retro details intact. The lobby’s slingback lounge chairs and lime-green color scheme hark back to days of Don Ho and the original Hawaii Five-0. In the guestrooms, lines and patterns create a look similar to that of the common spaces, with repeating squares in the carpet and “tiny bubbles” in the headboard.
Bed and Bath
The color scheme of lime-green and azure is well balanced with deep red lamps and other accents, such as lively colored piping on cushions and pillows. The flat-screen TVs are new, as is the high-speed WiFi. In fact, everything in the rooms — other than the ceilings, the sliding door (to a small but lovely lanai), the Lather amenities and the bathroom floor — feels new.
On the ground floor you’ll find a small but clean pool (with grills for guests’ use), a small workout facility and lobby computers for those traveling without. There’s no on-site restaurant, but coffee and tea, newspapers and WiFi (throughout) are all included — a nice touch often overlooked at the big name resorts.
In the Area
A short walk across the canal takes you to Ala Wai Golf Course, and just beyond, the multiple “local” dining opportunities on Kapahulu Avenue (Side Street Inn and Irifune are favorites). You can stroll just as easily to the Saturday morning farmers market at KCC or the plated lunch at Diamond Head Market as you could to the bustle (and beach, shops and dining) in Waikiki.
How to Get There
Cute,cleaned, and very friendly staff. Great location to shopping and eateries. No room service but microwave & fridge are provided in room. Reasonable rates compared to other nearby hotels. A great find for those on limited budget!
A great location for the hotel - very quiet at night. It is definitely one of the better mid range hotels and acts as a great stay for visiting the surrounding areas. While I liked staying here I definitely preferred to be outside. The breakfast was reasonable but the air conditioning is a little old. A great choice if you prefer quiet nights.
Great hotel! Book online for good deals on rates (waived resort fee, discounts, etc). Valet parking was convenient and relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels near Waikiki. Amazing location--within walking distance from Waikiki shopping, beach and restaurants, and close access to major highways. Breakfast was simple and filling, could use more fruit. Clean room, exceptional service.
The staff was awesome from the desk help to the parking attendant to our runner when we needed items like pillow or towels. Room was cold there was 2 toilets do that was a plus. Bed was very comfortable and very roomy to fit my family. Need to bring back the meat for breakfast although I cant complain cause it was free and filling. Will reccomend to others.
Wasn't sure of hotel because it was my first time staying here but it surpassed my expectations. Employees were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating, felt like the aloha spirit was alive and well. No complaints in either service or room. Mahalo.
