Certainly not the top end of the market but we are spoilt in NZ for hotels that are a step down from the top of the market. This hotel had great staff. The linen and beds were great. it was cleaned daily - especially the bathroom/ toilet, It was handy to shops. The pool was ok. But it wa so... More

We have a family of 6 and the I'lima was perfect. Our room had 2 bedrooms/1 bath and fully stocked kitchen. Parking is free, first come first served so you may need to have an alternate overnight parking plan. It has a small pool. There is a computer and printer to use for a fee. $5 for 30 min and...

This hotel is very dated. However, do not let that deter you. We stayed for three nights and they were great. We stayed in a two bedroom with a small kitchen. This was perfect for our family. The hotel is a short two block Walk to the main drag of Waikiki so it's easy to getti everything. Parking is FREE... More

Great sized room with family of four including two young toddlers. Very close to Waikiki beach. Found a great playground at the back of the zoo for the children. Staff very friendly. Public bus to pearl harbour is $5 return per adult. Bus stop very close to hotel. Much cheaper than going with an organised tour. Fast free wifi.

We stayed 6 people in a 2-bedroom. It was good for us. It is closed to the beach and shopping. And if you need it, they have all the tours you could wish. The cleaning was efficient and well done every day. I would recommed it for people to Waikiki.

For 10 days with my wife and another couple we stayed in a two bedroom apartment. This we found very adequate for our needs being large enough for the four of is to live .There was a shortage of some basic kitchen equipment, corks screw,wine glasses, but otherwise it was fine for the price. The facilities and staff were excellent.

The rooms here are kept clean and the friendly Staff do everything they can to make your stay comfortable. Try to get a room that overlooks the golf course not the front entrance. The old style ranch sliders (and old louvre windows) are not double glazed and the air conditioning is noisy and past its use by date. This makes... More

I stayed in the hotel for four nights. The facility inside the room could be a bit outdated but it is very clean. It is pretty large in which it fits very well for three adults. The kitchen has all necessary kitchenware including a small bottle of detergent ready to use. The parking is free which saves me tens of... More
