“Lovely complex - just far enough out of Waikiki.”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

My wife and I stayed at The Ilikai Hotel & Suites in a 1 bed condo suite on the 28th floor during May.

We found the whole complex to be clean, fresh, and well presented. Our suite well well appointed with ensuite shower room, a kitchenette with breakfast bar & full fridge/freezer, living area and double bed. We opted for a room that overlooked the lagoon, and thus had a perfect view of both the Friday night fireworks and the rooftop luau on the adjacent hotel. Laundry facilities are available on each floor near the main lifts.

Rooms that overlook the marina would have a nice view out to sea too, but rooms facing the roadway might be somewhat noisier with the traffic etc. Our room was nice and quiet at night.

The complex has a small Bar/Grill which serves good food, and lovely cocktails.

There is a pool and sun lounger area that is private for residents & guests, and which has Ilikai wifi available. Separate wifi was provided in our room. This was an issue for us as it saved on UK roaming charges when contacting home. One slight negative observation regarding the pool area is the limited number of parasols (3 or 4 only) that are over tables & chairs.

It is a 10 to 15 minute stroll from the Ilikai to the main Waikiki nightlife area, but the beach is only a couple of minutes away. The large Ala Moana shopping mall is a 10 minute stroll in the opposite direction & there are several very good dining establishments nearby. We liked this as it meant we were just out of the hustle & bustle of the main tourist/nightlife area, but within easy walking distance of everything we needed or wanted.

Parking in the area is at a premium, but the nearby Waikiki Marina Resort at The Ilikai parking garage do a 24hr for $20 rate. Otherwise on street parking is around $1 per hour and is time restricted. there are plenty of shuttle busses that pass the door, so unless you are touring the island, a car is not really necessary. If you do want a car for a few days, consider pricing one for individual days rather that block booking. It might work out less expensive.

All things considered, the Ilikai is an excellent holiday resort well worth considering.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lagoon have partial sea view, but a good view of the fireworks on a Friday nig...

We just spent 3 nights at the Ilikai and after spending 4 at a much more luxurious high end hotel down the street we would choose the Ilikai any time we returned to Waikiki. We arrived-805 am from disembarking the cruise ship and even though check in wasn't till 3pm, Chester was able to check us in to our room with a fabulous view on floor 22 by 815!
Great location -so close to Alamoana and the trolley stops right out the front.

Room Tip: Go high for the view-the lift is super quick!

We booked this condo on VRBO, and it was managed by Marina Hawaii Vacations. Service from them was amazing from start to finish, and we would just go direct through them next time.

Apartment was perfect size and location for myself and my wife. We were looking for something just slightly away from the main strip of Waikiki but in walking distance, so this was perfect.

The pool is great, although a little small, but that seems to be the case with lots of pool hotels in Waikiki.

Our room faced the lagoon in front of the Hilton, and we had a beautiful view of the ocean.

The entire place was nice and relaxing, and it was not crowded at all, like lots of the other hotels in Waikiki. No waiting for elevators or in a line for valet.

Really recommend this property, and the apartment specifically that we stayed in. Excellent value for money, especially when you are out and about most of the day/night and not really using the hotel facilities.

Room Tip: Check VRBO and other rental sites, and also try contacting managing agents directly for best rates

We stayed in apartment 518 & our friends were in the apartment next door. Check in was seamless as it had all been done online thru Waikiki Beach Rentals. Apartments were clean and well maintained. We were surprised to find no wine glasses in our apartment and it was a nuisance to have to buy a set . Location is brilliant. Easy walking distance to Ala Moana shopping mall. Bus to Costco, Pearl harbour etc outside the front. Good little supermarket 2 minutes walk. Coffee shop downstairs had a limited menu but there were plenty of other places to eat close by. Would definitely recommend if you want a bit of space, ability to cook for yourself and don't need daily cleaning or all the bells and whistles of a hotel.

Room Tip: Apartment 518 has a great view to the water.

We stayed in 1543 with our Adult family of 3,Total of 5. There was so much room we almost lost each other .Every conceivable appliance[Inc own laundry] on hand, if you need it , its there. Convient location ,Stunning views & stunning lanai's. Would highly recommend this condo to any family or group travelling to Waikiki. Check in was a great surprise, we arrived way early and had access to our room about 11 am instead off 3pm. Highly Recommended.

Room Tip: Choose high ocean view, especially front corners.

We stayed at the Ilikai in March for 10 nights. We booked our Condo through VRBO #290807 Captains Condo which room 1638.
It had a stunning view and everything supplied.
The location was good and the lagoon beautiful.
Pool area was well maintained.
Buses and tours were easy for pickup just outside the hotel.
The Ilikai Bar and Grill was great and very reasonable for breakfasts, dinners and cocktails.
The Coffee shop was fantastic.
Charthouse was our favourite place to watch the sunset over the marina and the cocktails were very good so was the food and entertainment.
We would stay in this location again.
