My partner and I just finished our third stay at the Halekulani and it did not disappoint. This is one expensive hotel, but is also simply the best. The employees are all friendly and helpful and called us by name. For this trip we booked five nights in a Diamond Head Suite, which is roughly 1070 square feet in size,...

So my parents flew us all to Hawaii to celebrate their 35th anniversary and we stayed at the Halekulani hotel. Hotel was gorgeous, people were friendly. We ate at their restaurant La Mer two nights. It was as delicious as everyone proclaims it to be. One of the chefs actually came out at the end of the meal and gave...

I have had the privilige of staying at this Gem several times over last few years. It is one of the finest hotels in the US: If not the world. Service is the gold standard of a great hotel and this hotel is Fort Knox. First let me say that the Halekulani would be rated #1 if not for the...

We just returned from 8 days at the Halekulani. Service was beyond our expectations, all staff we encountered were friendly and went above and beyond to be helpful. The hotel is beautiful and clean to perfection, and the security was like no other hotel/resort we've stayed at. The hotel beach is extremely small, but connects to the public beach, so...

We came to the Halekulani just to eat at dinner Le Mer because I had read great reviews about it. We actually stayed at a hotel on the other side of the island. Driving in to Waikiki we had trouble just getting to the hotel due to the massive amount of construction going on all round the hotel. According to...

Halekulani, is just flat out overated. I enjoyed my time at the J.W. Marriot (formally the Ihillani Resort) much better. Rooms are very average, no cosmetic updates since we first went in 2000! My wife and I will only visit the Halekulani for Le Mer now when in Oahu. The best meal possible. We dropped over 200$ for dinner, but...

We just returned from our first trip to Hawaii and am thrilled to say that the Halekulani is probably the most beautiful hotel we've ever stayed. I was concerned about some of the reviews I read but soon found out that those people must have been staying somewhere else. The Halekulani is just magnificent. From the minute we walked in...

We arrived at the Halekulani on March 20th. From the moment we stepped out of our limo we had the best service. We had an awesome view of the ocean. Room 1006, make sure you request it. We were a little disappointed that the room wasn't a little more updated but it was very clean. The other thing we didnt...

My wife and I, along with our teenage son, recently spent 3 nights at the Halekulani Hotel on Waikiki Beach. This was our first time staying here, and we were very much looking forward to experiencing the ambience and luxury of this highly acclaimed resort. Sadly, we found the experience to be lackluster and ordinary. Service here can't be beat--an...
