My husband and I stayed here for three nights in August 2014. We booked through booking.com, and it wasn't made entirely clear on the booking confirmation that we were supposed to collect the keys from the timeshare agents on the second floor. However once we got up there, the agents were very helpful and pleasant. The apartment itself was good,... More

It was a pleasure having you as our guest. We apologize that you had mild difficulty finding our 2nd floor registration office. I am delighted to discover that you found our studio suites to be spacious and our staff to be friendly and helpful.

I stayed from 7/22/14 till 7/31/14. The resort was very nice. All the employees were very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The location is very good, however, it's about a 2 mile walk to the actual Waikiki Beach. The bus system is amazing, and easy to get around.

We had a wonderful time in Hawaii and stayed at the Ilikai hotel. The online pictures were a little misleading, but once we got settled in we lacked for nothing. There's a well stocked "necessity " shop, a bar/restaurant, a lagoon, and a relatively small pool. The room was tidy and the owners considerately left beach gear, etc. All we... More

Our stay at the Ilikai did not start out well. After staying up for 24 hours straight our first night was interrupted by security coming over the intercom (after we heard about 10 cops and a fire truck come to our hotel- and we had a "street view" so we heard it all) showed up. Apparently we were under some... More

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.
