After many visits to the Halekulani, this hotel never disappoints as the service here is impeccable.

While there may be many more fancy or expensive restaurants available in town.....my absolute favorite is Orchids. The ambiance of understated elegance and the open atmosphere with stunning views of Diamond Head in one direction and the afternoon sunsets to the other.

Best Sunday Brunch for sure!

We love this hotel! This was our 8th stay and it was very hard to leave.
Yes it is expensive but that's why they are able to offer such an experience.
Staff are friendly and professional. Food great, entertainment wonderful.
This place deserves 6 stars.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor for a good sleep away from the waves crashing on the beach.

Absolutely loved our stay here! This hotel is well worth the price you pay for it. We had an ocean view room which was amazing. The view is just stunning. Our room was beautifully decorated. We were in Hawaii on our honeymoon and the hotel gave us a bottle of champagne to congratulate. That was a lovely gesture. The hotel grounds are really fantastic - looks beautiful.

Enjoyed the buffet breakfast; great variety. Only downside was that there was a bit of a wait to be seated for breakfast.

Had a wonderful massage at the spa. A tad pricey but well worth it.

Service was great all around; from restaurant to pool staff. Loved our stay and would definitely return.

My 1st time in Hawaii and absolutely loved staying here. It was serene and beautiful. Tip: reserve your beach chair early as the area fills up quickly.
The food was sensational. We only ate out twice after staying 10 days.

We used to walk the beach and fall in love with the Hawaiian music under the big tree and have popovers on Sunday mornings. We couldn't afford to stay there back then but have never forgotten the wonder of the beautiful property. Now, we have stayed there and are about to again this September. We can hardly wait. We know personally, Tommy Leong, a monkey pod designer who has displayed his work there, and have enjoyed entertaining him at the hotel. We never feel that we have to leave property when we are there because it has so many Hawaiian memories for us right there.
Many Alohas,
Wendy and Terry O'Neill

Room Tip: Facing Diamond Head and the Ocean is the best you could ever ask for. The higher the better.

The beach here is next to non-existent. We were so disappointed. We have been to Maui and it was fabulous. Please don't waste your money on this hotel....stay at the Hilton. It has a wonderful beach and much better selection of places to eat. Please trust me on this....you'll be sorely disappointed if you don't heed this advice.

My boyfriend and I did not stay at the Halekulani however we made reservations to have breakfast at the Halekulani.
I must say it was a great choice! We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the beach.
Food was fantastic, I had the poached eggs on toast , I had two eggs and one slice of toast for $10. I think this was a little expensive for what it was but the rest of our party enjoyed their food so it was totally worth it. The staff are very pleasant and professional.
Walking through the hotel to get to the restaurant was amazing, everything is perfect and so pretty.
