We throughly enjoyed our two day stay at Paradise Bay. The views off the deck were amazing with the mountains overlooking the water. We were happy to see that they help local animals and even had a few cats around that they cared for. Staff were friendly and even went out of their way to mail me my watch that I forgot in the room after checking out. Get out of the chaos of Waikiki, and stay at Paradise Bay Resort.

The location is secluded which is fine if that’s what you are seeking. The issues I had with this hotel are 1. it sounded like a heard of elephants with the family and young kids that stayed above us. There is absolutely no insolation. 2 The front desk does not answer the phone. The only way we could get a hold of anyone was to email. 3. They do not clean the rooms and you must fill out some kind of online form to have the garbage taken out , get towels etc… we didn’t totally understand the process and asked the front desk as we were getting pool towels. They forgot to submit it and my friend was angry when we got back to the room and it was still dirty. My friend was out of line with her tone when the young woman came to the door to deliver towels. I later emailed (since they don’t answer the phone) and apologized and said my friend was out of line. They came the next day and cleaned our room. I was going out to meet my local friends and realized I couldn’t find my Hawaiian bracelet. Thought I misplaced it although I hadn’t worn it. My friend also had earrings missing. I tore the room apart looking for my expensive bracelet that was a gift from my father in law. I emailed the hotel and of course they said they didn’t have it. I’m still just sick about it but know two things: I will never stay their again or travel with that friend again. :(

This resort is nestled perfectly between the luscious jungle and the bay. Many of the rooms afford outstanding views of the water, the mountains, and the surrounding area. To top it all off, their staff is top tier. Kayla, among them, works in the lobby and has gone above and beyond to make our stay the best it can be. She truly has our best interests at heart and has been a key factor for such a high rating for this hotel. I'm very pleased with the stay.

It’s hard to believe such a quiet place like this exists in Oahu, especially only 30 minutes away from the crowded Waikiki. We had three days at the Paradise Bay Resort, but it’s not a place we would like to return to. The waterfront cottage has a great view but this is pretty much the only thing about the hostel. There are quite a few things on the not-so-positive list. Location—it’s within a residential community. Hard to find. Parking is tight, with a very steep driveway. Even though the balcony got privacy screens, it was difficult not to see other residents. Of course, the rooster woke us up every early morning. No restaurant and no shop nearby. Facilities--the room is dated. Don’t mind the decoration or furniture, but both air conditioners were noisy and unable to bring the temperature down. The hot water supply was limited and unstable. Those things, I guess, would be the basic amenity for any resort. Service-wise, the front desk has been very friendly, but not much service has been provided. Quite a few emails to remind us of this and that before arrival, but the only request of us for a fold-able bed was not provided upon arrival, and it got the wrong size sheet when we asked after checking in. The room cleaning request has to be done online too. We didn’t get any service apart from an email to say that service has to be placed 24 hours ahead. The internet housekeeping application form should explain to people that do not expect service unless staying for three nights. Generally speaking, it’s an overpriced and over-promoted hostel. Not ideal for families with young children or seniors. Maybe it’s the place for couples to back to the past and live the bare and isolated life of 1950th.

Kayla was working the front desk one evening and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable! She was so friendly and such a wonderful representation of Paradise Bay! Comfortable, secluded, and personable. Thank you Kayla for being so wonderful and rad!

We stayed at the Paradise Bay Resort on the first leg of a 3 week trip to Hawaii. We were here 4 or 5 days. Apart from Kona on the big island, this was our favourite place that we stayed at while in Hawaii. Forget horrible and soulless Waikiki, this is the part of Oahu you want to be! We booked a bay view room and it was peaceful sitting out on the balcony for breakfast and dinner and drinks. Or you can wander down to their floating pontoons and chill there which is quite nice in the afternoon. There is also a little park nearby where you can go and watch the sun rise over the ocean. There is no food etc at the resort so you will need to go to one of the nearby supermarkets which are a 10 minute drive away. I recommend you rent a car as most points of interest around here are not within walking distance. Resort staff were friendly and helpful whenever we needed to ask them something. This is not a place you stay if want to be constantly pampered and indulged. So if you’re a snob then probably not the place for you. This is a place to come to if you want a low key break where you relax and wind down. I would say though that you should try to get a room with a view as some of the rooms without a view might be a little dull without the extra ambiance of a mountain or bay view. You may see many reviews mention the roosters! Well yes there are many many roosters here! And yes they can crow from midnight onwards - constantly. We thought they were charming though and loved watching them strut about as if they owned the place. If you’re a light sleeper consider packing some earplugs! If I were to pick any negatives - the bathroom was a bit tatty and the shower wasn’t very strong. But that’s all I could complain about as far as the actual apartment is concerned. The only other slightly disappointing thing was that they didn’t regulate the temperature of the hot tub very well. On at least 2 days the hot tub was way too hot to get into. People tried but jumped straight out as it was super hot and there’s no way anyone could actually sit in it. The pool is small but quite nice and refreshing although it’s best to use in the morning or late afternoon unless you want to be in direct sunlight. All in all I am definitely considering a stay here in the future if we come back to Hawaii. Currently writing this review from a horrible apartment in Waikiki and wishing I was still at Paradise Bay Resort!

When we drove into Paradise Bay Resort, we were a little leery. It certainly didn't look like a "resort" type of place. But after being greeted at the desk, we caught the aloha, no-worries vibe, and we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed ourselves. Our rooms did not have a water view. But the place was roomy, clean, comfortable, and well-equipped for our stay. Nice to have a full kitchen. The clerk who signed us in gave us a sheet of paper that listed places to visit as well as restaurants that we may not have found in our tour book, but which provided some great, not-so-expensive meals. The take-away that is only a few minutes from the resort had excellent local food. And the hint to make sure we stopped at Giovanni's Shrimp Truck on our North Shore trip was a terrific recommendation. Yes, it's a bit of a tourist trap in terms of crowds. But the shrimp!!!! We enjoyed taking the resort's kayaks out onto the bay. It's part of your fee, but you do need to reserve them to be sure you have access. There are lovely spots to sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous birdsong in the early evening. I was only sorry that we couldn't stay another few days.

Nice place on the windward side of the island. This place is nice but I would not call it luxury. There was no road/traffic noise, but lots of birds (which I don't mind). There are also a few random cats and chickens that roam around. This also did not bother me. TRAVELER TIPS 1) Dining options are limited in this area. I recommend planning ahead and hitting the grocery store on your way before you check-in. 2) Having a car is a MUST. The location is somewhat remote and you would be very hard-pressed to get a rideshare. 3) Not every room has a view. Verify before you book. WHAT I LIKED Its not Waikiki and you can get away from the touristy stuff. WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: The resort fee felt like a rip off. The paradise bay website states that the resort fee is $21/night but we were charged $38. The front desk staff told me that the free was recently increased. As of the date of this review (11/19/22) the paradise bay website site still lists a resort fee of $21. I feel it is not appropriate and unprofessional to charge more than what is listed. I was told that the $38 fee was listed on the check-in waiver. The price discrepancy needs to be adressed and better explained verbally. I feel I didn’t get much for the resort fee. We were told the resort fee included housekeeping and watercraft rental. When I checked in I was informed that housekeeping was by request - which I was understanding of. After 2 nights we were ready for housekeeping as we had tracked some sand and mud in from the beach. There was no phone in the room so I walked to the front desk to make my request expecting that I could have someone come in the time we would be out if the room (between 8 am and 6 pm that same day) I was told that housekeeping requests need to be made in writing 24 hours in advance. I was told I did not provide enough notice and as a result, we did not get housekeeping. They did however exchange my towels. They also lent me a broom to sweep the floors. It is my opinion that it is unreasonable to require 24-hour notice. I would understand eight or 12 hours' notice but 24 seems like a stretch since I could not have predicted ahead of time that my floors would need cleaning. Cleaning my own room does not feel very resort-like. The kayaks were free but the stand-up paddleboards were an extra $25 per person. I really feel paddleboards should be included in the "resort" fee. BOTTOM LINE: I would stay here again IF they got rid of the resort fee and verbally explained the housekeeping policy. I would NOT recommend this for first-time visitors to Hawaii since there is not much around.

This resort was excellent. It was wonderful to be able to stay on the island in a peaceful zen like setting verses the busy Waikiki beach area. Loved this the view from our room. Do your research and get a room with a view!! Cottage is even better
