Hidden parking charges of 28 dollars a day, It felt as though we were almost forced to attend a 90 minute open house in exchange for a 100 dollar gift card. We declined after much pressure to do otherwise. We also wanted to checkout early in the morning and could not get info on how to do so since the office was closed .The rest of the stay was very pleasant and the resort is very nice. We found the staff to be very friendly.

great location just outside the super congested part of waikiki, still close. trolley, shuttle and bus stops directly out the front door! Property is a little aged yet clean with a friendly staff. 5 minute walk to the huge mall for food or shopping and magic island with ala moana park+ beach the same distance. nice if you don't want to be over where the hotels are stacked 5 or 6 deep. really enjoyed our stay !

Location was amazing. All staff were friendly and helpful. The pink trolly stops right in front and stops at lots of places on Kalakaua Ave and Ala Moana Shopping Center...for only 2 bucks! The Ilikai was an udderly great place to stay! 😊

A Great Place To Stay

Wow, what can I say about this great place? This was worth every penny. For us common folks, this was luxury. This had everything I wanted: a spacious & clean room, a full size kitchen, with utensils; a balcony; a nice & clean bathroom & courteous & kind staff. We arrived early afternoon and was greeted by a friendly porter who took our luggage and directed us to the office. We went to the office and was greeted by a smiling staff. They gave us prompt service and got us to our rooms quickly. When we got to our rooms, our luggage arrived a few minutes later and we quickly changed to relax on the beach after a long flight. For the next 7 days we were taken very good care of and every where I looked, the staff was cleaning and making the place look great. When we come back to Hawaii, this is the place we are staying.

Great for families

Our room was spacious and very close to the lagoon which the kids loved! Just a short walk past the lagoon was beautiful Waikīkī beach. The full kitchen is a huge plus with kids and makes the stay so much easier.

Early check in was good, it would have been nice to get round trip shuttle to & from airport. Return flight seating was awful & seats were scattered, but we made it home safe

This place is a not nearly the nicest place 2 stay

Pros: If you need a kitchen in the room, here you go
Cons: the location, this property is not on the beach, it looks over the marina and you have to walk down the way to get to the so called hotel beach
Location: the property is located to some nice things to walk to if that is your thing, I did not walk very far
I was very mislead by the reviews, as it was made to look like this was one of the better places to stay in the area. If this is indeed the have low expectations. I have never stayed at place where the maid comes once every 4 days. I was there alone so it was not like there was a mess to clean but I thought that was strange. This place is also half residential/time share, so there are two different check in points, the one for the hotel part is a small office around the corner from the front desk. I would not stay here again.

Not a hotel

The room was fine but it is a time share and we were given a bit of pressure to,buy an apartment. There is no front desk and it is long and time consuming to get checked in. I would not stay there again.
