I stayed at the Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa for my wedding on November 22. Took to the spa for massage and relaxation prior to the ceremony. Came out wonderfully relaxed. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect, and it sure was. Event manager, Cathy Nakahara did a superb job, and... More

If you are not staying here before January 8th 2015 skip this part and read the next section on Ko Olina if interested. The hotel has been sold and will be redone as a Four Seasons in a year or two. As for right now the rooms are nice and large BUT the furniture is worn and there was lint/mold/?... More

We stayed at this resort from November 11-14, 2014. We enjoyed the resort and the surrounding area. The resort is scheduled to close at the end of the year. Location: It's approximately 1 hour from Honolulu and 30-minutes from the airport. It's a great break from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. There's a small shopping village close by to... More

We stayed in the Ocean View Junior Suite with two queen beds since my wife and I had our 12 yr old daughter with us. The suite was very spacious and the ocean view lānai offered spectacular sunset views. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. My daughter loved the ocean inlet and rented a stand up paddle board 3... More

Loved everything about this hotel except maybe for the beach views. Good - the rooms were magnificent with huge bathrooms, soft sheets, big comfy beds, and every comfort you can imagine from a hotel -the protected beach for swimming was a good and a bad thing, I was there in December when the waves are at their worst (or best...

Want a great relaxing experience with good food and fun? The Ihilani gave us exactly what we wanted. For our friend getting married, we spent the day at the spa, lunchtime in bathrobes by the spa pool was a nice touch.

A really nice hotel. Good size rooms. Really friendly staff. Excellent buffet breakfast. Lagoon is great if you don't like the sea as its so well protected and well designed so there's no waves and only a little swell. Also great for a little bit of snorkelling, especially nearer to the lagoon entrance although watch for the currents. Bar did... More

If you prefer to relax on your stay and avoid the hustle of Waikiki this is the perfect location. The property is gorgeous in addition to being a beach front property. The garage is not adjoined to the hotel but just across the driveway (additional $35). Walking distance to Paradise cove. There is also a complimentary shuttle that runs every... More

This hotel was wonderful. The rooms are spacious, with one of the largest bathrooms I have ever had at a hotel. The little touches are nice, such as reading lights on the headboard and double sinks in the bathroom. The white plantation shutters are a nice touch, but not very effective in keeping out the morning light. Our room had... More

We chose the hotel and stayed there for 5 nights. The hotel is excellent for a family stay enjoying the natural sea music and birds singing all the day and night. The room was spacious and comfortable. There were several restaurants around the hotel to choose from.
