We absolutely loved our stay at the Ilikai in Unit 1737. The condo has everything you could possibly need to prepare meals etc. and just to live comfortably. The king size bed was really comfortable, the air conditioner was perfect, and the condo was just pretty and inviting. There was even a beach bag that came in handy! The views from the lanai were stunning and ended up being my favorite place to hang out for the week we were there. Beaches are within easy walking distance and the Ilikai is located on the quieter end of Waikiki so it was perfect for our tastes.
We rented a car for one day (located right across the street from the Ilikai) and drove to Pearl Harbor so we could spend the entire day there and had a wonderful time. We rode the Pink Trolley quite a bit for other places we wanted to see and didn't want to walk that far to.
We loved Cinnamon's restaurant at the Ilikai and their outdoor area. The only problem is that it got a bit crowded at certain times so it would be nice if the Ilikai had another restaurant choice in the future. There is a great little coffee shop at the Ilikai as well and some fun shops and a convenience store.
We would definitely book this condo again if we ever return to Honolulu.
