“fabulous, even by Hawaii standards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I was on the 25th floor, with a great balcony and magnificent views. The room was exceptionally spacious, the bedding beautifully comfortable, and the service was superb. Will definitely have to stay there again, preferably longer than one night. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: pay the extra $11 for a higher level room. sooooo worth it.

I rented a condo at this location. It is great value for the price you pay. I was on the ocean side and thought it was great. My room looked on to the Hilton front entrance with it's pretty landscaping and waterfalls. They softly play Hawaiian music all day to and it's nice to sit on the deck and hear the music and the waterfalls. The rooms are all different to just be thorough in checking the details when you book a room or rent a vacation rental. My room was on the 5th floor and it was a good size for a couple. It had a kitchen and a king size bed which was great.

Some rooms have a large fridge and a stove with an oven. Others have a smaller fridge with just a cooktop. Some rooms have carper and some tile. Also some rooms sleep 6 and some 2, so just double check everything to meet your needs.

The pool area isn't very appealing but there are tons of other options along the beach in walking distance. The restaurant at the Hotel isn't bad and not too pricey. The lobby area is visually appealing and clean.

Room Tip: They are all different so read details. Also please note that an ocean view room can be a fare dista...

The hotel stay itself was nice but things seem to be outdated a bit at the Ilikai. It is hard when you are staying near some of the other hotels that have really nice inviting pool areas or nice shops in the main level but honestly the Ilikai had everything we needed. The valet group was so quick and very nice when we came and went. It was expensive but it was welcomed having to not park our car after long days of sightseeing and watching the soccer tournament. Ilikai felt very safe too.

Room Tip: we loved the view of the Marina. you got to see the sun set as well! Our friends stayed on the Hil...

The Ilikai Hotel was such an outstanding stay for our family of five. We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom suite with a wonderful view. Access to the cove and beaches were great; and you had "excutive seats" to view the weekly Friday fireworks right there. The amenities were great to include the shops nearby. Easy access to Waikiki. Management and staff were sooo accomodating and friendly; and made us feel as though we were all a true Ohana! Thank you all for a wonderful stay!!

We decided on the Ilikai Hotel for our 15 day vacation after reading all the great reviews about the property, it also had a fantastic location with a 2 minute walk down to the beach and lagoon, and marina right out the back. Bus stop right outside, and its own Bar and grille down stairs. We booked thru http://rentalsinwaikiki.com/company.php with Dainora, and she put us in a fantastic condo #1225, WOW .. what a perfect location, the view from the balcony facing the beach was awesome. The value for money was second to none with full kitchen, nice bathroom, huge bed, Tv, dining suite, clean and tidy. We saved $800 NZD booking thru her compared to other websites ! Anyway, the Hotel was great. The staff were friendly and helpfull, the food at the grille was excellent. We used the booking desk down stairs and Cathryn was fantastic and helped us plan and book 3 excursions. Concierge services were friendly and they had luggage storage all day until we flew out that night which we really appreciated. Couldnt have got a better value for money stay ... A definate option for accomodation in waikiki

From the moment we opened the door to Condo 1938 we were thrilled. The condo was fresh and clean,with a lot of thoughtful touches to make one feel right home. Plenty of storage and a really comfy bed. (Lovedt he linen too!) Plenty of bath towels, beach towels and beach gear. So many more utensils and appliances than you would get in a hotel room.
The view was amazing, we spent many happy hours relaxing on the balcony with a beer and a cocktail or two. If I was feeling lazy I could watch my husband surfing from the lanai, and the grandkids playing in the lagoon! The night lights of the city and the Luau next door on some evenings were great to enjoy at night.
We enjoyed a few meals at the Ilikai Bar and Grill downstairs, and walked a few times into Waikiki for beach,shopping and restaurants. We also caught the $2 trolley to Waikiki which stops right out the front of the Ilikai. The foyer and amentities of the Ilikai are beautiful, and checkin was so easy....just jump in the lift and use the keypad to enter the condo! We checked out a lot of accomodation options for our first trip to Hawaii, so glad we chose this condo as it is really good value for money, as well as a great place to stay. Thanks to our hosts for giving us this wonderful opportunity!!

Room Tip: We loved the view over the lagoon.

Ilikai 822 was another perfect unit from Aloha Condos. I was on Oahu for work and the Ilikai is always my first choice while there. If you require the Four Seasons, you better pay and stay there. With that said the Ilikai is a great property it has the resort feel without the crowds. The Condo was clean and updated. Had everything I needed for both business and pleasure. Booking was easy and efficient. Parking no problem. The View outstanding.
You won't be disappionted with Ilikai 822.
