We spent 10 days in Halekulani. We picked the place mostly based on reputation and the reviews and no regrets! Perfect location, polite and friendly service. It's not a club hotel, but still you have this cozy feeling about it which is achieved by the staff behaviour and by the spacious common grounds. The beach "attached" to the hotel has been criticised by others for its small size, but it really did not bother us - just 2 minutes walk and you are at the wide sandy beaches of Waikiki. The concierge at the hotel was perfectly knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast is really spectacular. Overall - yes, please, and when I can go back...?!
