I visited this facility

We visited The Plaza at Waikiki. They wanted to know how much we could pay because they didn't take any insurance. Then they said she had to leave in two years if she didn't get any. The people were fine and nothing special, just fine. We didn't look at the rooms because they weren't interested in having her. The facility is brand new. The initial information that I got did not satisfy me to the point that I was going to go in and ask them more questions.

The Plaza was nice, but for the amount of money they were asking, the service was not worth it. It’s brand new, the rooms were small, and the staff was very nice. If you can afford it, that’s a wonderful place.

The Plaza is nice but a little small for my parents. It felt very confined but nice and well maintained.

Provider Response

Hi Happy Daughter17; Thank you for visiting our community! I'm glad you feel The Plaza at Waikiki was nice and well-maintained, but am sorry that you felt the size of our apartments are too small for your parents. As a licensed assisted living community, our apartments are actually quite comparable to the larger units in other assisted living communities on the island. We have quite a few happy couples currently living in our community, and while priorities vary from resident to resident, we find that residents quickly overcome any concerns about usable square footage, and appreciate all of our common areas and amenities as an extension of their apartments. Thanks again for your comments!

I liked The Plaza. It was gorgeous, perfect, and clean but too expensive. The staff was friendly.

The Plaza at Waikiki is brand new, and it is in the heart of Waikiki. It is a very desirable location. The negatives are it is too industrial for my taste, and it is extremely expensive because it is in the heart of the city. The staff is always nice. We check a couple of the rooms, and they are nice. They have studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. The studio is more on my price range.
