Really enjoyed the can-do, friendly service at a recent stay here! Service goes a long way and consistency amongst all the staff goes a long way. I found myself literally saying I haven't had such a uniformly friendly and efficient interaction during a day in ages. Great job all around from the team. That said I have to be truthful the pools are absolutely unacceptably awful. They are like 3'3" which is about 1' shorter than you want a pool to be. They are tiny, missing tiles, with a view of approximately nothing. A second thing is I didn't see a bar open my entire stay. Just seemed off for a high end property at this price point to not have a staffed bar all day. So I guess what I'm saying is I really enjoyed my stay and the staff made it great. Skip the pool and find somewhere else to go have fun. I'd return.

We were here for just one evening, which happened to be my birthday, on our way back to Tennessee after staying the week in Maui. We are Ritz-Carlton brand loyalists, having stayed in many locations, but never a residence-only property like this, so we were unsure of how the service would be. I was quickly assured when I received a pre-arrival email from Moko Miura, the Guest Relations Agent, who inquired about our stay. After learning that we were celebrating my birthday that evening, dinner was arranged at the Quiora restaurant in the building, with beautiful ocean sunset views. David Nakamura, the Concierge Supervisor confirmed the details of our stay and dinner the evening before and later coordinated the return of a very important item that my wife had mistakenly left in the room. We were later contacted, by Seth German, Purchasing Coordinator, who made sure that we had the tracking numbers of the FedEx shipment that he had arranged. We were very grateful for their help! The units themselves were modern and stylish with all of the amenities and appliances of a condominium, with a 17th floor balcony with ocean views of the Waikiki Beach area, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and beaches. We would highly recommend this property, which not only was perfectly located, but provided impeccable customer service in the Ritz-Carlton tradition.

We stayed at Ritz Carlton for two nights to celebrate my wife's birthday, and we were very pleased with our stay. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were impressed with its friendly staff and hotel amenities. The hotel was modern and well maintained, but most importantly the staff were attentive and helpful. We were able to get a corner suite overlooking the pool. The room was clean and comfortable, we especially enjoyed the nice and comfy king size bed. It had a large bathroom with soaking tub and walk in shower. We especially liked the in-room washer and dryers, they made doing laundry a breeze. The hotel is not an ocean front property, but it has a very nice adult infinity pool, hot buts and a family pool with slide. We look forward to the next time to stay at this hotel.

Horrible experience. The hotel was overbooked for the amount of services they offered. Elevators confusing, staff at both pools gave misinformation, closed pool service before 5:00 pm. Told us we could go to with bar and get walk up service. Not true. First one said no walk up service and we could not go in; second said bar was overbooked and we had to get on waitlist when clearly they had seats. It was pure discrimination as we were not dressed as elaborately or were as young as the two guys in the bar. I complained to front desk. They sent up two complimentary drinks in plastic cups to our room. And this is the Ritz and I am platinum with Marriott. Outlandish prices for room and food and never got to go to either bar. DO NOT STAY HERE if you are 50+. Very disappointing

Dear DenaM373, That is not the experience you deserved and I am sorry that our facilities and services fell short. Your loyalty should have been recognized with care and comfort, not disappointment. As it is my responsibility to have the resort and team properly prepared I do hope that we may connect to discuss this further. Mahalo, Jason White Director of Operations

I stayed at the Waikiki Ritz (party of 8, 3 rooms) for a week in July 2021 for a family reunion. We were told that we would all be on the same floor, but the check-in staff said this was impossible. They did upgrade us to a nicer room as an apology, but the mistake at the beginning of our stay paved the way for the rest. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but lack amenities (perhaps because of COVID). Another complaint was that Housekeeping continuously failed to restock amenities and I had to call concierge three times for new toiletries (each time delivered with an apology, but nothing changed). Perhaps the most annoying situation of the trip was the pool. Firstly, the pools are thoroughly underwhelming. There are two (an adult and child pool) but they're small and often crowded due to COVID. I understand that pools can only be so big on a tower in a city, but frankly, they were embarrassing. The child pool is filled with screaming four-year-olds, which makes the whole situation awkward for anybody in the ages of 14-17, as they're too old for the tiny waterslide and spitting tots. One such person was my brother, who was interrogated on his age three separate occasions at the adult pool. The first two employees allowed him to stay, as he was quiet and more behaved than the adult guests, but he was kicked out by the third set, told to go play with the four-year-olds. Again, not the mark of a five star. Interestingly, a large woman had her entire nipple out at the edge but she was not told anything. Truly embarrassing on the part of the Ritz, but at that point, we left the pool and didn't come back. Ultimately, the hotel is okay, and definitely not bad, but I would save your money. It wasn't at all close to the value of the 600+ a night we paid for it. And if you have kids over 12, choose a different spot.
