I booked my trip on expedia hotel and flight package and I didn't know the junior suite I booked was part of shell vacations timeshare. Don't get me wrong, the price was reasonable per person so it's understandable that we get what we paid for. Please note: ilikai hotel is seperate from condos/timeshare unit rentals.

Though we were here on Oahu only 3 days and 2 nights, we were treated exceptionally well. The rooms were fine--there were ten in our party, as our sons and their families came with us to Hawaii to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Even though the rooms are somewhat dated, the usefulness of the kitchen and the cleanliness of the... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. We liked it last year and the location really is hard to beat, being next door to the lagoon and near to the mall. The pool is fine, the pool staff (especially Teri) are really friendly and great. Last year we stayed in the Ewa wing with a street view. It really... More

We only had an overnight but the staff couldn't have been more helpful despite arriving on an early flight we were found a room so we could sleep straight away & it was quiet, spacious, clean and wonderful. Luggage service was included so no need to tip the bellboy.

The illikai is a nice hotel. Staff is very welcoming & the rooms are spacious. What I disliked was the noise of the people on the streets day & night.
