We stayed in one of the condos at the Ilikai for 8 nights in March. For the price ($1400) & location, at the end of Waikiki beach, it's hard to beat. We had an ocean view, however a few blocks away, but still an ocean view at that. Even with 5 of us in the room, there was plenty of room. It was very clean & kept up well. The AC didn't work when we got there, but after a call to the Manager, they replaced it with a new one the same day. We ate at the bar & grill in the hotel & the food was excellent! The biggest downside is it's not right in the middle of all the action, but still only a mile or so away from the shopping & restaurants. If you want to stay at a place where you can simply walk outside & are on the beach, this isn't the place. However, if you want to save a few hundred to a thousand dollars, this is the place. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
