Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled close to Waikiki Beach, the Waikiki Resort Hotel charms with its clean yet quaint ambience, despite some guests finding the atmosphere noisy due to thin walls and loud music. While the hotel's location earns high marks for convenience, opinions on the service and amenities are mixed; the attentive staff is often lauded, yet slow breakfast service and outdated offerings draw some criticism. Travelers commend the room cleanliness but suggest updates are needed, and the value proposition is marred by steep fees for parking and resort amenities.

We had breakfast at the Ilima restaurant twice this week even though we were not staying at the hotel. Both times the food was delicious and our server, Erna, was very kind. The restaurant is also very clean. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This was the best way to start our morning. So refreshing and relaxing. We walked to Waikiki Beach and sat down in front of the beach surrounded by the sound of waves. It was a peaceful session and just as we finished a rainbow came out to make it a perfect ending. I would 100% recommend.

Yoga on the beach with Julia was the best part! She had music, mats, blocks, and was so motivating! I cannot wait to take a class with her again—I couldn’t believe it was complimentary! She has an amazing soul and was just what I needed to unwind. I couldn’t thank her enough. I will definitely look for this the next time that I visit.

Just returned from what seems to be our second home. The waikiki resort hotel is a great place, from Trent,Leo and Rusty at the bell desk to Branden, Farah and Dave at the front desk everyone always have a smile and a hello. Park and Moon in the continental breakfast and Erna in the Ilima Cafe all work very hard to look after everyone. From the reservations dept,housekeeping and the general manager Glenn who always said to contact him if we needed anything . The hotel is always clean and a short walk to great restaurants and attractions. Want to give a big shout out to Branden from the front desk who took a couple minutes to take some pictures for us.

This is a wonderful hotel where we have stayed off and on since 1978. It is only a block from the beach and very near many restaurants and stores in Waikiki. It is an easy walk to Kapiolani Park and to the Honolulu Zoo. There is also a nice swimming pool and pool deck. Everything is well kept up. The lobby is open air, clean, has attractive, comfortable seating and a series of stained glass windows and lovely flowers. We were first met by Leo who welcomed us and gathered up our luggage for transport to our room. Folks at the front desk, Derek, Susie and David, provided an easy check in, quick answers to all of our questions and much aloha. When an extra side table and lamp was needed next to a bedside, Chalida and Zander were quick to attend to our needs cheerfully. Rooms are clean and most have small refrigerators. The beds are very comfortable. There is a free continental breakfast each morning with a nice variety of hot & cold cereals, little pastries, fruit, juices, and coffee. You can make yourself a waffle or toast and hard boiled eggs. The offering changed a bit daily. Mr. Park and Rowena were speedy in replenishing foods, beverages and clearing off tables. If you want more for breakfast there is the full morning service Illima Cafe off the lobby. Hotel guests currently are offered a discount. Be aware, most hotel pools are not heated in Hawaii so the pool water is cold in winter months. Parking is available for a charge. Lei making, yoga, ukelele and other classes are available daily. There is a shop off the lobby for snacks and other needs.

The sunset meditation with Julie Jay at Waikiki Resort Hotel was great and inspiring. She makes me feel safe to meditate in the public and guided me with positive affirmation to follow. I would encourage everyone who visit Waikiki to join her program as it will lead you to discover something new about yourself. Thank you Julie and wishing you the very best.
