We spend $18,000 per year with this hotel as we visit twice per year. When we arrived this year, we were given the wrong room (we requested a specific room 2 months before arriving), the Internet access at this hotel has become really bad (wireless or wired), and this morning, we were at the pool, we came up to our...

The Halekulani was the most beautiful and comfortable hotel I've ever visited. We had a balcony room with an ocean view, and a view of Diamondhead. When they learned it was our anniversary they sent up a complementary bottle if champagne. Special little touches every day, little gifts left in our pillow. Fruit and chocolates when we arrived. Fantastic breakfast... More

Of course this hotel is legendary and I have been coming here since the 80's. Sadly this will be my last time. I will probably go next to the Kahala Mandarin. The service is still great and are very attentive and the food is quite adequate. But the clientele of this resort has changed dramatically over the past years. While... More

Staved here the night before my friends wedding as part of the bridal party. The rooms are clean and have a fresh feeling. The pool is gorgeous and the location is close to shops and the beach (walking distance) yet has a tranquil feel to it.

I have two locations in Hawaii that make me feel special. The Halekulani is one of them. For me life really doesn't get any more pampered than spending time at this beautiful property. Spoil me silly!

I've never stayed at the Halekulani, though I've heard nothing but good things, but locals like myself revere the very classy, pricey but yummy brunch buffet on the lovely lanai. Delicious seafood, ono grinds, top-shelf, and — I did say I was a kamaaina, no?—all you can eat!

I was so looking forward to this trip and hotel but ended up being disappointed. It was adequate and no major flaws but just not worth the price. Check in and check out were longer than necessary. Outdoor bar service was not very good.

Halekaluni was a beautiful place to dine! We came here twice on our vacation away, the first time was great however the second time I was a bit concerned I had uncooked chicken. The meals are nice but not amazing for the price. Depending on what you order. The burgers are generally pretty great. The pool view is gorgeous but... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a fortnight on the outer islands and it was the perfect place to stay in Waikiki to have the best of both worlds. It was nice to be able to experience the buzz of Waikiki Beach yet to do it on our own terms within the peaceful surrounds of this... More
