A Family Staycation at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa

Disclosure: Complimentary accommodations were provided. Gratuity, meals, and parking were paid on our own.

Several years ago our family staycationed at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa, and I appreciated the family-friendly features.

Since some time has passed, and families are traveling again to Hawai`i in droves, I was curious to see if the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa was still a family-friendly option.

After a (too quick) staycation at the resort last month, I found that the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa is indeed still very family-friendly!

After a very welcoming check-in, where Kathy at the Front Desk really went above and beyond to ensure a great stay, we headed up to the Family Suite.  The Family Suite is essentially connecting rooms, making it very spacious for large families.  One room consists of a sofa large enough to sleep in, along with a Murphy bed, and another room comes with two queen beds (a king bed room is also available).

The rooms were bright with modern decor, and there was plenty of room for everyone in our family to sit and relax at all times of the day or night.


We all slept soundly in the comfy beds (one kid slept on the sofa) in the cool chill of the air conditioning, and could not hear the loud music or crowds on the busy Waikiki strip with the sliding doors closed.

Inside each room is a 55" flat screen TV, a bathroom with a large vanity and Toto Washlet, a mini refrigerator, and a coffee maker.

I appreciated the dimmable lamp, which is perfect for those with little kids who need a night light, or even for those who are older who may need light if going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Each room opened up onto a lanai with amazing views of the ocean, which I could just gaze at for hours.  I'd just sit on the lanai and watch the beachgoers, surfers, and sailboats.  I especially enjoyed watching the sun set! It was the perfect way to detox from all the tech (even if just for a few minutes). 

The rooms also included complimentary reusable water bottles (filling stations onsite), a reusable tote, slippers, in-room fitness channel, and Na Ho`ola Spa bath amenities.

I personally love that there was plenty of sleeping space in the Family Suite, as well as two bathrooms, which is a must for our family of five.

A pool is onsite, and since it's not very big, I highly recommend you get there early to snag a lounge chair and to get in some pool time before the crowds emerge.

The beach is literally a walk across the street!

Guests can also participate in cultural activities at the Ho`okela Hawaiian Cultural Center.  There were no activities taking place while we were there, but during the week they have all sorts of activities perfect for the entire family, such as hula and ukulele.

If heading to the beach, kid-sized beach chairs and beach toys are available for use! Simply request them from the pool attendant.

The Pualeilani Atrium Shops on the bottom three floors of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa boasts a number of eateries and retailers, so you can get everything from sunscreen and sandwiches to artwork and jewelry without having to leave the property!
We had a lovely dinner at SHOR Waikiki, where we indulged in pasta, seafood and more while listening to live music (a keiki menu is available). We also enjoyed some sweet treats at Dylan's Candy Bar, which is right downstairs in the Pualeilani Atrium Shops.  

Other Notes:
Onsite is also a fitness center, spa, as well as a Hawaiian Music and Dance Hall of Fame Historical Exhibit.

Both valet and self-parking are available. If there is a big event (eg a wedding), hotel guests may be prohibited from self-parking, and will be directed to International Market Place, which is just a short walk away, to park for $50 overnight (which is what we had to do).

The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa is very family-friendly, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to families - whether kama`aina in need of some rest and relaxation, or visitors seeking convenience and comfort.
