“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Very exclusive, very nice hotel. Large property, but not as large as Disney Resorts. Check-In lines are long especially when traveling for a period of time, but they do their best to get you on your way. Big Plus: Hospitality room available for day of check out if have a late flight, just make reservation 24 hours in advance, daily movie rentals or game rentals. These were awesome. They have a traffic cop to direct traffic within the resort, which I thought was a class act, instead of having big traffic jams. We paid for the valet parking, which we do not regret. It is expensive, but well worth it. Friday night fireworks are good. A lot of activities going on, watch them feed the penguins and turtles. Rooms are nice and big and keep clean. No problem with asking for extra towels or pillows. Trolley stop is just outside of hotel, very convenient. Pools are clean and have security at them. The lagoon was a very nice surprise. Not just stagnant water, it has water filtration system that circulates water hidden in an island- it was wonderful. It has fish in it, but great for paddle boards and beginner snorkeling. Rental of paddle boards is expensive $35/hour but it didn't seem to stop people from doing it. The only thing that upset me was that 2 chairs and an umbrella will set you back $60 for a day. I think that is quite a bit, especially with pay parking, resort fee, etc. All in all, very classy resort with a lot to see and do.

This resort is gorgeous! My 9-year old son & 7-year old daughter loved the large pool with the two water slides. The fireworks on the beach were beautiful! The restaurants on site made it easy for a quick bite. And the lagoon activities (paddle board, peddle boat) were fun. The ocean was calm and waveless, which made it fun to snorkel. The room was a little plain, but we didn't spend much time there. We were in Hawaii! We spent most of our time outdoors! We tried to spend every other day at the resort, and there was lots to do there. We even took a snorkeling turtle watching tour from there. And we went to the Waikiki Ocean Club from there, where we jumped off the yacht, slid off a slide, and jumped on a trampoline... all into the ocean! And the Luau at the resort was incredible! And being right there for most of these activities helped us preserve our energy to fit in lots of activities and minimize or travel time. The kids can't wait to go back!

This resort is amazing. It is always active with multiple pools, a shopping district, dining options and lots of hawaiian hospitality. Access to pristine beach is great. The resort can be busy but very nice. Lots of on site activities ( you may see episodes of Hawaii 5-0 filmed here) and there is an easy shuttle to see Waikiki. Every evening has activity including fireworks on Friday nights.

Room Tip: use your Hilton Honor points to upgrade rooms for a better view.

We arrived July 10th. Very busy check in but being HHonors members helped with the priority lines. Beautiful room and loved he bathrooms. Nice ocean view. Hit and miss at restaraunts but found some we enjoyed. Our kid pizza call at round table met with crappy service but everything else was great. Loved all the pools and the lagoon. Fun watching the movie filming going on. Quick check out and great room service staff. We will be back. We went to the time share seminar however are not much on you must buy today sales pitches. More interested in looking at it on our time fame.

Room Tip: Ocean view is the way to go

We stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village for 5 nights over the 4th July period ...so very busy ....so cannot comment at non peak times.
We check in prior to arriving ..thank goodness ....and totally recommend doing this as the lines for check in/out were very long.
We stayed in the Kalia tower with a very good view ....housekeeping was very good ....room had good wi fi and of a reasonable/good standard with balcony.
The main pool was always busy without getting up very early unable to get a lounger .... there really should be a pool attendant who takes away the unused towels so other guests can use the facilities.
The lagoon is a very nice spot ...but did not realise that the far end was open to the public ...so very busy with families visiting for the day.
The loungers and sun umbrellas were $15 each to hire ....which given you pay a $25 Resort Fee a day I cannot see this is worthwhile!
The restaurants by the main pool are franchised and unfortunely you are unable to sit beside the pool and eat food from any other café than the one you are in.

It has everything at this hotel shopping, food, and penguins?! Yep! We were staying at a hotel near by and decided to check it out and it was just awesome. And if we didn't wanna just stay there they had a trolly stop right out front that went up and down Waikiki. We also attented the luau they offered and it didn't disappoint! Probably stay here next time!

We stayed in the resort for 4 days, then moved on to 2 other hotels during our stay in Waikiki, and all I can say is that we wished we never left. There is no comparable hotel in Waikiki to the Hilton Hawaiin Village, for the price point. It can get crowded at times, and the pool area can get cramped, but the hotel is so expansive that you can find your own private spot somehow. It's just the best all around hotel in the area. We paid roughly 275 a night, including resort fee, and it was worth every penny. The room was a decent size for me and my family to spread out, and it was clean and modern. I would say my only complaint is that they need to work on their Mai Tai's. For $12 it better blow my mind, instead it was cheap rum and sour mix.

Room Tip: Do research on a particular tower. For us the Tapas tower was perfect.
