Hawaii – Holiday in Paradise

I’m back in Sweden after a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. We stayed at Aston Hotel which is located on a quiet stretch of Waikiki Beach. We had booked a room with partial sea view but got an upgrade to full seaview, so we had the most amazing view of the beach and the palm trees. You pay $39 in service fee per day, but the fee includes sunbed, beach towels and sun lotion as well as the opportunity to borrow a GoPro camera free of charge.

Almost every night, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant Tiki Bar & Grill. I really liked the New York Steak sandwich, so I had it 3 days in a row. It was served with fresh fruit and tasted amazing, so if you’re dining at Tiki Bar & Grill make sure you order that one.

The hotel is undergoing renovation and later this year, they will open a breakfast restaurant on the rooftop.

The staff at the hotel was very friendly. One of them Tom, came from California to Hawaii 30 years ago to surf, but he fell in love with the islands and decided to stay.  

PS: At happy hour at Tiki Bar & Grill, margaritas are only $5. Now that is something that you don’t wanna miss!
