Have an elderly relative on the memory care floor and can't say enough good things about the facility,  staff, nurses and aides. They are fantastic. The unit is spotless, food just fine, and they go out of their way to accommodate my family's needs and requests.

this place is overpriced and sadly run. its safe in a sense that access is very protected but as for everything else it fails miserably. for one thing their food is bad.....ask anyone there and they will tell you that the food is really bad. programs are lacking too....poor excuse in providing. this place just takes your money and provides minimal service. find another place and do your homework. what looks nice on the outside is always not nice on the inside

My grandparents recently moved in The Plaza and visiting them is very simple and easy. There's ample parking, I never have to fight for a stall each time I've visited, and I love the juice and coffee station that they have. Visiting hours is 24/7 which is also really nice. Guests can also pay a fee if they'd like to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with their loved ones or friends they are visiting. It makes it really simple to enjoy a meal with my grandparents! It's a full meal too- salad or soup, entrée, and dessert! You simply pay at the front desk, receive a receipt, and then give it your server. The entire staff is such a joy. Dawn is a life-saver, she's very thorough on what she does and conversations with her are very nice. Shout out to Kawika too! He is our favorite server in the dining hall. He is full of joy and it's clear that he thoroughly enjoys his job. He even walks around and talks to my grandparents. The smiles on their faces makes my heart full when they converse with him. The shuttle service is great, and there's many activities for the residents to enjoy as well. Different movies are shown throughout the week (Disney, New Releases, Western, Classics, etc). The food menu changes daily too. No food is repeated which I know my grandparents appreciate. My family does as well since a lot of us do eat with them regularly. I feel extremely comfortable having them here. I like to tell my grandparents: "It's just like living in a hotel everyday!". Each day has a theme, and there's activities-- hula dancing, exercising, crafts, walking club, Harmonica Club, and the list goes on and on. There's a lot of things for them to do and many things within walking distance as well.

I do not know how I didn't get to reviewing this awesome event right away. It left such a good feeling in my heart!The Plaza has a great location right off the Ala Wai with ample and easy parking for visiting guests. Once we checked in at the front desk, I was offered juice. I am mentioning this because the juice situation was so cool that I had to take a picture! After getting settled in on the lanai/balcony area we began setting up for activities with the residents of the Plaza. First we decorated small ceramic pots to each individual residents desires. I had to scour many tables to find just the right stickers for one of the feisty ladies I had the pleasure of working with on her many projects. Once the pots had just the right attitude, to express the many personalities I had the pleasure of meeting this day, we then set about repotting the chosen succulents. Our second activity was lei making. I have very little experience in this craft but everyone was very helpful so I learned a new talent. We made leis for the wrist and head for each resident. There were so many boxes of flowers, I had to stop myself from throwing them delicately in the air and dancing among them.At some point during our first craft, the music started! Apparently the shuttle driver at the Plaza can strum and he was playing for us all. We were also treated with a hula dance by one of the Plaza employees.All in all such a lovely day and I will remember it always!

I was invited to the grand opening and was able to tour the facility. This is a brand new senior residence for independent living and assisted living. The building is located right across the convention center at the entrance to Waikiki. The building is really nice, with the lobby on the ground floor, and main lobby on the third floor. The units have central air, and residents have a choice of studio, semi-private and one bedroom units, with dining rooms, exercise rooms, a hair salon, and activity areas for the residents. There is also a very nice lanai on the third floor, with tables and chairs, as well as two sitting areas that overlook Kalakaua Avenue. Very desirable location for seniors who want to continue an active lifestyle, just minutes from the beach and Ala Moana, and walking distance to different restaurants in the area. Definitely someplace to recommend to anyone considering senior living options. The grand opening: wowzers! It was a great opening, with heavy pupu and mimosas available, and when I say "heavy" I mean a spread that covered three different areas. There were duck sliders, artichoke dip, crab claws, shrimp, lobster and potato croquettes, meat skewers, chicken wellington, seared ahi, beef medallions, anti-pasti, and don't forget dessert--banana's foster. And that's just what I ate....there was also sushi, shrimp, oysters, polenta, beef sliders, pasta I said, 3 rooms of buffet lines. All of that, with a live duet serenading attendees and residents, it was a great way to celebrate a grand opening!

It's beautiful, shiny and clean when you walk into the lobby, but Do NOT let your loved one be cared for on the Halia Memory Care Floor. My Mother was one of the first residents to move in. After two years of battling the administration about unsanitary living conditions, mysterious falls resulting in fractured eye sockets and resident assaults, "lost" Hawaiian jewelry, we'd had enough!The administration is very aware of the problem. We wrote off the fall as an accident but after visiting multiple times to find urine and feces on the walls, floors, bedding and other patients we'd had quite enough! Met with the administrator to report that my Mother had no sheets, soiled mattress, comforter and blankets that had been thrown over her fabric chairs (ruining them as well) - she assured me that things would be taken care of and that no one should be living like that! Next day, same thing ... moved Mom out that week.We'd even hired a patient advocate team to visit weekly and check up on the care and cleanliness of the facility. It didn't matter. The CNA's don't want to care for the residents and the nurses pass everything off to the CNAs.At almost $8k a month, The Plaza Waikiki should be ashamed of itself for the care they give to our aging ohana! I apologize for the graphic pics, but I wanted to get my point across. Soiled linen, towel with feces stuffed under the kitchen sink (yes the smell was horrific), feces on the wall, soiled chair, laundry left in plastic bags (memory care floor so they no longer no how to put away their clothing) - shameful!
