We stayed at the Waikiki Marina Resort for 5 nights with my husband and our 1.5 year old daughter; and also with another couple who also had a little girl of same age (they booked a separate room though). The check-in staff was very accommodating. Although the check-in time was not until 4pm, we arrived from the airport shortly after... More

Aloha TVasilis, Glad to hear you had a great visit and "Mr. Magic" contributed to your satisfaction with our team and resort. Thank you for your understanding with our property improvement efforts - if you should return toward the end of the year, you may find our offices on the lobby level and a secondary pool in our current location!...

The room itself was good. . First of all we ordered a room with one king bed and a sofa and they gave us two twin beds iinstead. Than we told them we need a king bed and they gave us 3rd floor with a renovation going on downstairs. We have two little kids and theres no way to put... More

Pretty decent location overall being close to the mall and a 20 minute walk to the beach. The room was booked from a property management company I found on Airbnb that came with a full kitchen and a marina view. The property manager Gavin was really quick to respond to emails and really awesome overall, granting a late check-out on... More

We stayed there with two kids for seven days. It's located in very convinient location: close to Ala Moana Beach Park and Mall . It takes 3min to get to Kahanamoku Beach or Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Surrounded by many shopping places. There are some nice restourants on resort property. The staff is very helpful and friendly (Kudos to Kendra). Free... More

Stayed at the Ilikai Marina for a month. It is close to everything and the view cannot be beat. Our unit could definitely have used some updating but look past that and it is a great place to stay for a very reasonable price. Next door to The Modern Hotel that charges $500 a night and just down from the... More

This is an older complex that appears to be undergoing a lot of renovations. The rooms were clean and quite spacious. It was nice having the kitchenette and being able to have Kona blend coffee every morning. The rooms do not get cleaned or refreshed on a daily basis. Would have been nice to at least have the towels refreshed,... More

My wife and I stayed two weeks. The pool and restaurants are great. The staff very friendly and accommodating. The only down side was the parking fee of 28$ a day plus tip to valet park, but we got such a good rate from Enterprise Rent A Car for two weeks it lessened the blow. We traded our time share...

Aloha Mark, Thank you for exchanging into our property - we appreciate it! Parking can run in the high $20s thru even $40s in Waikiki, given it's urban environment. At certain times of the year, we may be able to suggest self-parking options a block away, but for ease and convenience, the on-site valet parking is unbeatable. Thank you for... More

My family decided last minute to go (3hr before flight) and really liked the studio. We make it work queen bed for us and pullout couch for the kids. Right on beach and Mariana. Friday's free fireworks next door at Hilton. Resort is basic but very nice.
