We stayed at the Waikiki Marina for 3 nights in June 2015. Although an older building, the Ilikai has been reasonably well maintained and functions efficiently. Our apartment was furnished with a king sized bed and a fold-out sofa, and was suitable for our family of two adults and two young children. The small kitchen was well equipped and quite... More

Since the Hale Koa was fully booked for the month of June, I booked at the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai which is actually a condo for rent with all the amenities of a hotel included in the price. The location is excellent and the staff (Andre, Framph, and valets) were superb in taking care of their clients' requests.... More

Aloha GhenTravelbug, Thank you for your kind comments about our staff....your review will make their day! The Ilikai is indeed "historic". Another bit of trivia that might be interesting to share is...on the TV show Gilligan's Island from some years ago, the USS Minow set sail from the marina behind the resort. The series "Lost" was also filmed on location... More

I booked two rooms and had a very pleasant stay here. Very clean and in a great area. I am totally paranoid about finding roaches and bedbugs and there were none. Kitchen has everything you need. Our rooms faced the streets but I didn't mind the noise.

Though it gives the impression as a hotel while booking through Expedia, room is a part of Wyndham Vacation Ownership. From the main lobby, we were directed to the second floor vacation rental office which is difficult to locate - which functions only from 7am to 11pm. Our concierge for check out didn't turn up at 6.45 am as promised.... More

We stumbled on this place through Travelocity and were very pleased. The room was nice and clean, the staff was wonderful and the view was nice.

Ilikai Marina Resort is great digs right next to the Hilton without all the tourists. If you are all about low key owner rentals without the hassles, this is for you. Stayed on the ocean side 16th floor. Great view up and down the beach with the sailboat masts center stage. Woke up every morning to sip Kona coffee on... More

This hotel is located close to Duke's Lagoon and the far west-side of Waikiki beach, a five minute walk at most. The rooms are large with kitchenettes which comes in handy for breakfast or just a break from eating out all the time.

The hotel is not bad for what you are paying for. The rooms are a little small. Beds are way too small. We requested two double beds, but they were not large enough for two adults. The bathroom was very small with no counter space. The showers were tiny too. We did not pick a room with a view so... More

We stayed in a room over looking the ocean and lagoon. the room clean with a good sized kitchen, not that cooked but it was great to get breakfast ready and sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. The Ilikai is a great location to stay in Waikiki.
