We have stayed here many times over the past 30 years ..and seen many changes along the way . When staying in an apartment type accomodation there is an expectation that we will eat in some nights ... A few small things would make our stay more pleasurable . It's time to upgrade the outdoor seating on the lanai ...even...

We booked room 1236 and it was perfect. Although the Ilikai is an old building we were fortunate to get a condo that had been somewhat renovated. The condo has plenty of space for a couple and is in good condition, cosy and tastefully decorated. The condo included free Wi-Fi, a well equipped kitchen and a very comfy bed. There...

The Ilikai was amazing. So close to everything. It's a popular stop for all buses and tours so they pick you right up here. Everything you need is right here. Food, grocerys, activities, easy access to the beach and lagoon and two pools!

We stayed on the recommendation of a friend. Overall we found the Ilikai a good place to stay. It is an older property - 50+ years,but has been renovated and is well kept. It is very well located and close to all the things you might want. The staff were excellent. Our room was recently renovated with nice furniture and...

The condo was perfect, in a perfect location, with perfect views. We could not have asked for any better of a stay. Illikai 1944 was in excellent condition from the beds, to the bathrooms, and the kitchen. We loved every minute of our stay and all the conveniences of our room and the complex. We didn't even need to go...

The hotel has a variety of eateries. Walking distance of stores and rentals. Jaw-dropping scenery. The variety of room layout along with amenities such as laundry rooms is an amazing touch. I will surely revisit and recommend.

Our first impression when pulling up to the building was that it was older and might be outdated. When we got to the room, we couldn't be more wrong. The unit was well appointed and in great condition. We had excellent views from the balconies. We were right in front of the weekly fireworks as well. It was close to...

I haven't been to Oahu since I was kid, and my wife and I decided to go here for a much needed vacation. Through out preferred airline, we took a package at the Ilikai. It was a great hotel - right in the middle of the action beside the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Plenty of things to explore - either by...

This is a hotel/ condo/ time share. We stayed in the hotel part. Floors 20 and higher have been recently renovated, so try to get one of those rooms.
