I've been here many times and always come back. While it is just outside the Waikiki shopping area, it is still convenient and more quiet than in the midst of Waikiki. I always feel welcomed and can count on consistency in the studio that I stay in which includes a full kitchen, a comfortable bed, desk and chair and balcony.... More

This is a hotel and a Shell Vacations timesharing resort. It is conveniently located on Waikiki beach. Our room had a small kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and microwave, which were very useful. The view to the ocean was partial, but was still nice. Valet parking was offered, for a fee. Everyone of the hotel personnel that we dealt with... More

We arrived early before check in time and they had our room ready. The room was clean and having a full kitchen was convenient.

We are shell vacation owners and try to stay at Shell properties whenever possible. We've stayed at the ilikai before and like it's location close to Ala Mona shopping center.

The five of us stayed here in mid July 2015. The unit faced Ala Moana Blvd. so there was traffic noise when on one of the two lanais.

We stayed here for a week. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked most of the meals during the stay. We usually spend around 15 mins to find free street parking along Ala Wai Blvd in the evening. We stayed at the 3/F and there were construction at the 2/F for a few days which was very noisy and annoying.... More

Upon arriving the hotel, the façade does not really impress us. But once you get inside the hotel & room, it was not that bad at all. Our room was facing the street & up on the 13th floor so we didn't hear any street noise. It is very near Ala Moana mall & food. They had a path at... More

Although not in the heart of Waikiki, the Marina Resort is well enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main beach area to be reasonably quiet, although we did get some street noise, once we closed the heavy curtains, it was fine. To get to and from the beach is a shuttle bus ride at a cost of... More
