We enjoyed the Ilikai. Great location next to Hilton Hawaiian Village, close to the beach, public transportation. About a 10-15 min walk to Ala Moana mall with tons of eateries, shops, and also a Foodland grocery store. Many restaurants nearby also. Had an marina/ocean view for a great value. Do your homework on the different rentals. We had a very nice updated condo but they are all different in decor and updates. The pool was a basic square pool but sufficient for cooling off. Thought it was a great value for location and view. Clean, would book there again if we ever get back gto Waikiki.

If you're planning to surf at Waikiki, think twice about booking this hotel. Although we were well enough satisfied with the accommodation, the walk into the central Waikiki beach area (where the best waves were) and to restaurants grew very tedious -- it's a good 25-30 minute walk. The beach near the hotel doesn't offer very good swimming and the pool, as other reviewers have pointed out, is small and not particularly nice. On the other hand, the hotel offers easy access to the Ala Moana shopping centre, it is quiet at night, and it's close to the Hilton lagoon if you have young children. The accommodation at the hotel is good and spacious (if you want a studio or apartment) but housekeeping was quite slow making up the rooms. We had to ring down to request service on a number of days.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms would be quieter

My husband & I stayed here in January 2011 for our honeymoon. Choosing a hotel in Waikiki was quite a challenge given the vast array of options, but in the end we were swayed by the fact that this hotel was at the more "quiet" end of the city, no loud nightclubs and party goers to contend with.

We loved our stay here. Our room was very large and had a balcony that looked out over the marina as well as a kitchen, big TV and lounge.

The pool here is quite small, but more than functional. The hotel is located next door to the Hilton Hotel so we often walked over there (a 5 minute stroll) and swam in the Hilton Lagoon (which is a public swimming spot) or the beach right next to it. The beach is a bit rocky getting into the water, but I think all of Waikiki is like that. The water was lovely.

Our room had a kitchen so we ate breakfast in our room each day (there's a supermarket not too far away or ABC stores everywhere) but ate dinner in their restaurant one night (Sarento's) which has a fantastic view over the city and the food & service were outstanding. There are a plethora of places to eat nearby and the Ala Moana shopping centre is about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride up the road.

Would we stay here again? In a heartbeat. No complaints at all.

If you are thinking of staying at the Ilikai hotel and your plans include spending time at the pool, I would highly recommend NOT staying at the Ilikai. The pool at the hotel can maybe accommodate 50 people, yet the hotel has 25 floors of rooms. Also, if you enjoy working out, their workout facility is one level below pathetic.

The Ilikai was in a great location. Close to the beach, the restaurants, the stores, public transportation. We never wanted for anything! The hotel restaurant had good food, everything was clean. Especially liked the Christmas decorations! Staff was very accomodating. Would definitely stay again.
