It was our first time bringing our 3 kids age 4,8 and 10 to Hawaii. Our first impression at the Ilikai was that the front desk staff Marie and Riccia were very helpful. They really went out of their way to help us settle in. Our ocean front room on the top 25th floor had absolutely gorgeous views of the beach and marina. It was spacious, airy and clean. The beds were very comfy. The child friendly lagoon beach is just a few mins walk from the hotel. The kids loved this beach just right beside Hilton Hawaiian because there was no large waves and the water was fairly shallow at most places with tiny fishes swimming around. Just opposite the hotel are lots of food eateries, very convenient. The hotel pool is heated and is crowded on weekends. There was an unpleasant encounter with one of the regular pool users from the apartments that share the pool. We got into the pool at 8.30am( by our watch time), not knowing that the pool clock showed 8.25am. There were only 2 ladies using the pool at the time. This lady in her 60's went up to my 8 year old who was in the water and told her off saying hotel guests were only allowed to use the pool after 8.30am! Luckily the pool management staff David was very nice and smoothed things over. Other than that, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to families with young children.
