We had 2 double beds with a full kitchen and 1 bath. It was adequate and clean. If you're looking for luxury, it's definitely not here. We stayed here basically free on a friend's timeshare, so it was great! That said if I had to pay, then maybe not worth it depending on the rate. I'd say for a Waikiki...

We loved the location because it was at the western end of Waikiki, and close to the water. Easy beach access, marina views, close to Ala Moana mall, and of course close to many restaurants. Friday night fireworks are set off by the Hilton Hawaiian resort next door, and it's great to be close by

Spacious room with fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable, great views. Beach is literally right outside. Very good location. The bathroom was very nice with a huge shower. Balcony was very nice, could see the ocean and the harbor that's at the beginning of Gilligan's Island.

The Ilikai marina resort is well located. It's a close walk to Ala Moana and not,too far from the main Waikiki area. There are great views over the marina and ocean and beach and the condo has good facilities and is very clean and well maintained. One draw back is that there is no pool and the Ilikai hotel close...

The Waikiki Marina Resort is nice. The location is great, practically on the beach and 1km the the Ala Moana mall. The room and the service are good enough, no complaints. Parking is $28 per day. Easy access to beach. Nice coffee shop and restaurant too.
