We have visited Waikiki Marina Resort many times and it has maintained its charm and beauty. The location is perfect, the staff excellent and overall it is, in my opinion, the best stay in Honolulu and Waikiki. Yes I have visited three other resorts on Waikiki. I plan to visit Hawaii and Waikiki many many times in the future and hope to stay at the Waikiki Marina Resort.

In our opinion, being by the Ala Moana Mall, being on the outskirts of busy heart of Kalakaua Blvd. , being right by the lagoon and beaches, and right by the Trolley tour buses make this the perfect vacation spot!!

Excellent location and if you have an ocean view room you won’t want to leave your lanai. Pool area was a little bit disorganized as they seem to constantly run out of towels. RCI check in was difficult as it is not located at the main check in counter as we found out after lining up for some time only to find the RCI check in counter in a remote corridor.

This was our first trip to Honolulu and it couldn’t have worked out better. Although the Illikai is one of the first hotels built along Waikiki Beach it well maintained and operated. Our suite was perfect for our stay and we were close to anything and everything we needed. The beach was close, restaurants were excellent. The Pesca offered a beautiful view and had all day happy hours and some really reasonable lunch specials. Worth the long ride to the top. The staff at the Shell Vacation Club went out of their way to make us feel welcome and took care of anything we asked for. Kirsten and Carolina were two of the friendly names I remember but all the staff just really seemed to enjoy making our vacation special.

The resorts is beautiful with private access to beach. Centrally located to access city or private transportation. Landscaping and common area are well kept. The onsite restaurants offer a wide range selection. Staff at checkin were cordial and attentive. Offered great tips for the short trip which made it extremely pleasant and enjoyable.

Overall great location. 100 yds from Waikiki beach. Property is a little dated and showed some wear. Rooms were clean and roomy. But who is really hanging in your room when you’re in Hawaii I would recommend

Unit had everything we wanted for a wonderfully relaxing stay. Very comfortable furnishings. Patio was amazing for sunrise breakfasts and sunset cocktails overlooking the lagoon and beach. Very large property but we always felt we had lots of room at the pool, beach and didn't feel like we were crowded in anywhere we went in the resort.... other than the elevators.

The Ilikai was slightly better than I expected. I was prepared for an older room in an older property and my expectations were exceeded! The room was slightly updated and the property, while older, was nicely maintained. We arrived a few hours before check-in and were allowed to enter our room early. We were offered the choice between 2 doubles and a pull-out couch or a king and pull-out couch. Because we travelled with our two kids, we opted for the 2 doubles and the kids were happy they wouldn't have to sleep on a pull-out bed. There was space to move around the room with four of us staying there. We appreciated having the small kitchen as one of my children has food allergies and it isn't easy to eat out in restaurants. The fridge temperature wasn't working properly but the front desk offered to keep our perishable food in their fridge overnight until the fridge could be fixed the next day. We had a street-view room, which was quite noisy, but I wasn't expecting an ocean view room so I wasn't too surprised. Parking at the hotel is $45/day, so we parked around the corner at the Marina building and paid $28/day instead. It was only a 5 min walk to parking and the beach next to the marina. The closest beach was very rocky and we didn't return. The Hilton lagoon was convenient (also a 5 min walk) but the water was very cold and very few people were actually in the water. As others have mentioned, the Hilton Friday night fireworks were fun to see. It's a short show (5 min?) so I'm glad we didn't have to travel far to see them. Overall, the room was decent and the location was acceptable. I'm glad we were only using the Ilikai as a home base to sleep, eat and shower for a few nights while we spent the majority of the day exploring different beaches around the island. It isn't a true "resort" but it did the job of acting as a relatively home base while spending a long weekend on the island.
