All of the staff is really friendly and nice. The property is so beautiful and all of the restaurants are great. One of the best breakfast buffets I have been to and its free! The hotel is a block from great shopping. The concierge is very helpful with setting up activites

Let me start off by saying that Halekulani is not a bad hotel.However it is certainly not a luxury hotel as it claims itself to be. This is definitely not a 5 star hotel. My husband and I selected the Halekulani to celebrate our honeymoon. We were visiting from Western Australia. We had 4 nights on Maui previously and stayed... More

This review is well overdue as hubby and I stayed here for the last few nights of our honeymoon a few years ago. We had a partial ocean view room overlooking the pool below. The bathroom was one of the best we have used in a hotel room and the bed was so comfortable. The grounds and hotel itself are... More

We had high expectations leading into our stay at Halekulani (based on reviews on here and also feedback from friends) and left with mixed feelings. The exterior of the hotel is absolutely stunning and extremely well kept and each of the bars/restaurants are also beautiful. The rooms themselves though seem quite dated and the bathrooms are in need of refurbishment... More

I selected a room with ocean view. The view is nice. Although I think the room is not so modern design. But the outdoor area is very nice and feels very good and good energy. I think the towels, linen and amenities needs to be improved. The pool is not opened at night so it's very dark. It will be... More

A superb understated hotel of impeccable taste. In a very good location with its own small but private access to the main beach at Waikiki which is where everyone wants to look and admire. Shopping in Waikiki is over rated but fun and something everyone must follow. Hotel is clean, efficient and courteous without being over the top. One of... More

Often times I think that certain hotels and restaurants rest on their laurels accumulated over the years, and fail to match their lofty (old) reviews. This is NOT the case with the Halekulani. My fiancé and I were able to book the Halekulani's Hau Terrace room for our small (just over 100 ppl) wedding and reception. Although this is a... More

As the Forbes Travel Guide says, the Halekulani is a 4-Star Hotel. The missing star is simple- service is professional, proper, but not always warm. I am staying here now and it feels like they like being stuffy, clinging to dress codes, doesn't feel like staff is quite "on my side." does not feel like a FS Or Ritz with... More

Me and my sister had a wonderful time! When you arrive a staff member gives you a hotel tour and then take you to your room and presents all amenities. All staff is courteous, well mannered and the greatest service attitude. The room and the bathroom were modern, clean and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurants are magnificent, we... More

The Halekulani is a 5-star hotel in every way. The rooms are up to date, very clean, and designed with every comfort in mind. The staff is, without fail, exceptionally helpful and exceedingly courteous. The food is also wonderful. There are three restaurants to pick from, and there seems to be nothing that they can't make -- and make well!... More
