We've stayed in the hotel before but this was definitely our last visit. Love the location, the history and views. However.... if you like to swim and expect to find a seat at the pool together (2) almost any time of day this isn't the hotel for you. We ended up sharing a chase, briefly, and only once in the entire week we were there. And don't expect to avoid the crowds by swimming the evening because the pool gate is locked! No food or beverages are allowed in the pool area and was surprised to learn that it was a chlorine. What is Hawaii without memories of some relaxing downtime at the pool. We really missed that. Very disappointing. I wish I'd seen a review like this on Trip Advisor.
Some of the staff was very friendly but somewhat spotty at the front desk. The rooms are large, basic and clean but this hotel is tired and the rooms are in need of renovating.The veneer on the bottom of our bathroom door had been peeling off for some time, had been painted over and was still peeling. If you want to print out your boarding pass you'll be directed to a rolling cart in a small corner with an ancient computer beside the front desk. Although this hotel still beautiful in many ways this is not the Illikai we remember.
