We had excellent results with the following round trip shuttle service for 39.00 each ($78.00 for 2 adults), which we booked as part of a marriott package. They were prompt cordial and greeted us with Leis, and the driver was very informative enroute to Marriott Waikiki. Here is the info from my reservation confirmation. Enjoy!!!

PS The Waikiki Marriott was wonderful..we received a complimentary upgrade on arrival and could not have asked for a better ocean view room.
We were there for 8 days in June on a limited budget and it was our first time there, we pre- purchased the GoOahu pass which we used continuously and it was well worth the 7 day pass price. We were able to circle the islands attractions with most admissions paid by the card. Parking is expensive 35 per day, so we tried street parking and were ticketed once. I think if you rent a car from hertz on site parking may be included, but it was cheaper to rent a car at the airport...again we used the marriott site...and picked up a rental special which was advertised on marriott site. Good luck and enjoy.
We actually used Speedi Shuttle and were quite pleased with their service. We were met in the baggage area and were directed to the waiting shuttle. It did have to drop off several other passengers before us, but that was okay with us. On the return service, there was one couple on the shuttle when they picked us up and we left directly for the airport. Both of our drivers were very personable and gave us information about the area.
That's good to know because we are coming to the Marriott Waikiki Beach Resort in mid February and this is our first trip. By the way, I did a European tour in 2007 with the alumni Razorback crew. I was a friend of the alumni travel coordinator and the people from Arkansas couldn't have been nicer. Go Razorbacks!
Here is a suggestion that will save you an enormous amount of money AND will get you to your destination in about the same amount of time if not sooner. Take THE BUS! Seriously, THE BUS is one of the best public transportation systems in the country and is very inexpensive. Don't be embarrassed to carry on your luggage because it is normal. THE BUS travels through Waikiki and stops in front of many hotels. You may have to walk a few feet but after 10 hours of flying (well, at least from Texas) your legs could use the exercise.
Cali - We didn't use the bus to the airport and back but we did use it quite a bit around town. We took it with our son to visit his YWAM base in the Manoa Valley and as a 20 year old he said, "It's a 10 min walk from the bus stop!". Well, it was like a 30 minute trek actually, through the U of H campus, (beautiful) along a cracked up road, etc. I think I'll stick to the bus around Waikiki! Mary
