Forty-seven years ago, I met my husband here on his R&R from Viet Nam. We had a week in Honolulu and stayed here. It was wonderful. Came back here yesterday to relive old memories. Unfortunately, it was hard to remember after so many years. (Ha!). Anyway, the hotel is very nice and not too big. The pool leaves something to be desired. The rooms were big and clean but could use a little updating, but still nice. We are with another couple and we are staying just two nights here and then off to Maui (which we have never been too). We would definitely come back to the Ilikai though.
