This is a selection of rooms in the Ilikai that have been converted to 1 room studio condos. They are roomy and clean. Of course there is going to be street noise. These rooms are located right over the top of ala moana boulevard and noise should be expected. Full size kitchen appliances. Right near a bus and trolley stop....... More

Great location, just steps away from the beach and just a short walk to great food and shopping. The staff always provides 5 star service especially John and Rowley. Rooms have great ocean view and have a nice kitchen for your cooking needs. Love waking up in the morning and enjoying some fresh papaya and some hot green tea. Can't... More

We just returned from our stay in Waikiki and at the Waikiki Resort. While the staff at the Ilikai Hotel (where the Waikiki Resort Hotel is housed) was AWFUL and I hope you never have to deal with them during your stay, the Waikiki Resort staff and stay was the most amazing part of our trip.

Aloha from the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai. It sounds like your family had a vacation of a lifetime at our resort. Our less chaotic side of Waikiki locale and friendly, guest-oriented staff cannot be beat. We are pleased to be completing the installation of flat panel TVs in all of our suites by year end.

This was my first experience staying at a boutique hotel. Shell Vacations somehow owns a share of the Ilikai Hotel in Waikiki and treats those properties as its own hotel within a hotel. I had a huge room with king size bed and an adjacent living room with folding couch. There was a large balcony. The kitchen was a full... More

Dear Carolyn J, Thank you kindly for your online review. Our rooms are indeed huge boasting 500 square feet of interior space in addition to their spacious furnished balconies. Many other Waikiki hotels feature rooms less than half that size and no kitchens at the same rate or higher. Glad you enjoyed our complimentary wireless internet and ocean facing lobby... More

We have always stayed at different islands before and Honolulu presents a much different view. There is so much to do or so little. The Ilikai is close to everything and The Bus stops right in front. We use a timeshare and Shell Vacations has been wonderful. The staff were very attentive to any questions or concerns we had.The full... More
