Really enjoyed out stay. The facilities were good. Comfortable bed. The only thing I would have liked was a nice bottle of cold water in the fridge on arrival, would have been much appreciated after a long light. The shop downstairs was closed at that time. We would book this accommodation again without hesitation. Thank you. :-)
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the unit to be something you would be happing in returning. We do not provide water but there ABC store pretty much on every corner and are open late and sometimes all night. The location of this unit does provide the convenience to everything and is right downtown.
We hope you will allow us to accommodate you again in your next stay in paradise. Mahalo for your business!

Our stay at the Ilikai Hotel was pleasant. The hotel location, amenities, shops and restaurants were all good with very friendly and helpful staff. The particular condo we stayed in was just okay. The AC is placed right next to the bed and is quite loud which meant you couldn't use it at night as it would interrupt your sleep. And the condo was a little worse for wear. We had several friends staying in other condos because we were all there for a wedding...their rooms were much nicer as the owners of those suites have renovated their suites. I would stay at the Ilikai Hotel again, but would likely choose another suite.

Second stay in 1512, would be hard pressed to find a more accommodating owner and staff to deal with in Waikiki. From the ease of the reservation process to the simplicity of checking in to the unit, kick starts your "real vacation time" in fine style. Simply walk into property, find the elevator, and enter the unit within minutes of arrival. The furnishings and amenities within the unit as others have stated are in abundance, you will truly be hard pressed to not locate anything you might need within for cooking, relaxing and beach fun. The property location for me is perfect, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle (and noise) of the main part of Waikiki (yet easily walkable beach side or street side) Ala Moana Shopping Center minutes away on foot, beach about 3-4 minutes max on foot. 23 visits and counting to Honolulu, all stays have been at the Ilikai, so happy to have found this unit within this property for the last 2 years. The view from the large lanai you ask? Simply needs to be seen and experienced with your own 2 eyes to be truly appreciated.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in unit 1512. We usually stay at the Ilikai Hotel and this was the first time we stayed in a condo unit. The unit was close to the laundry room and elevators which was convenient! It was nicely furnished and having the kitchen helped to make our stay more enjoyble. The condo realistically sleeps 3 persons comfortably (one full size bed and a sofa bed that lays flat for one person). There was an air mattress in the closet which we could've blown up and used, however we opted to borrow a futon mattress from my in-laws who live on the island. I'm not sure how comfortable the air mattress would've been. We all enjoyed this unit; this includes my husband and two sons ages 22 & 17. The ocean view was always a beautiful sight in the mornings, afternoons, and at sunset! We would definitely want to return. Thank you to Eleanor who was very attentive with our booking.

We've stayed in the Ilikai a number of times so we knew what to expect and were very pleased with 1512. Eleanor was a pleasure to work with. The condo was just a pictured. Plenty of room. The Lanai was confortable and included a tub of beach equipment. Made it a point to get take-out from the Ilikai Bar and Grill and watch the Fireworks on Friday night from the Lanai. Perfect views for a fraction of the price that others pay across the way. Great location, you can walk to everywhere. If you want you can watch a nightly luau from the lanai as well. Again, very comfortable and we will definitely get in touch with Eleanor for our next trip! Mahalo!!!

The condo was very clean and modern and good size for a couple, although an extra mattress was provided.

This lovely condo, with it's tasteful decor and ocean view, met all of our expectations and more! Located in the elegant Ilikai Hotel, it is so convenient for shopping, beach access and Waikiki nightlife. On a Friday evening, the day after we arrived, we had a 90th birthday celebration for my mom. The living room and lanai seating and kitchen bar were perfect for entertaining our guest. As we were enjoying the evening and my mom was seated on the lanai, suddenly a wonderful fireworks display began right in front of us. We had the best seats in the house and it certainly made our birthday celebration special! I look forward to returning to this condo on my next trip to Waikiki.
Amazing View of Waikiki from the Lanai
Reviewed by Micky
Amazing view of Waikiki beach from the 15th floor lanai of Ilikai 1511. Very tasteful and refurbished lobby area with a general store, coffee shop, restaurant and other amenities. The condo is nicely decorated and clean. In my opinion, the condo is more of a large studio instead of a 1 bedroom because there is no wall or door to the bedroom, but it looks like all 1 bedrooms in the Ilikai are arranged like this. There is a shoji screen that does provide some privacy. There is also a sleeper sofa that can sleep one person comfortably. There is no dishwasher but good refrigerator and stove, and fully equipped kitchen. The laundry facilities are across the hall. The bathing elevator is directly next to the condo but we didn't notice any unusual noise. Perfect space for 2 or 3 people, but tight for 4 unless the sofa bed is changed. Only annoying thing was the wall air conditioning unit that blows directly onto the bed. We had to divert the air because it felt like sleeping in a wind tunnel. The owner and management are very responsive. Loved staying here!

My husband, son and I stayed for 5 nights. My 22 yr old son slept on the leather futon bed and was quite comfortable. Even though the check in time was 3pm, we got to the condo at 1:30pm and was able to get in with no problem. I love the fact that no key or card is needed to open the door. So, one less item to worry about. The Pink Trolley which stops right in front of the hotel took us all around Waikiki for $2 per person one way to shopping centers and restaurants. We enjoyed taking walks around the lagoon which we can see from the balcony. We appreciate the many different options for meals at the Ilikai, Hilton and Modern hotels next door and within walking distance around the neighborhood. Suggestion for minor improvement: Get a new hair dryer, have liquid soap at the bathroom sink and shower, a sponge and dish detergent for kitchen. Make it clear that this is a Studio, not a one bedroom condo. Somehow, I got the impression that it was a one bedroom with a door.

We have just returned from a week long stay at The Ilikai condo #1512. My husband and I travelled with our 2 children aged 17 & 11, so I was a little worried about having enough space in a 1 bedroom condo. However this place was perfect for us. It's in a great location with an easy walk to both the ala Moana Mall and the busy Waikiki hotel/restaurant district. We got coffee each morning from the cafe downstairs and sat on the balcony looking at the fabulous view. I really liked how there were beach chairs etc for guest of the condo to use. I would recommend this condo to anyone, I think it's great value and the owner was extremely easy to deal with. The only negative thing about our stay was the lady who 'ran' the pool each morning. She was consistently rude to people, however not the condo owners fault, but someone needs to have a word with her! We simply walked the 2 mins to the lagoon and swam there instead. I would stay here again if I return to Oahu.

From the time I booked the condo to the time I checked out all I can say is -What a great home away from home. We stayed at the condo for ten days and everything we needed was there from condiments in the kitchen to beach boogie board in the lanai . The location is perfect near to almost every activity and shopping excursion you might undertake. Everything in the condo was in perfect working order and comfortable, but I must say that kitchen is quite the gem. The kitchen has anything you might need from popping a bag of popcorn to making a full breakfast. Do not worry about taking anything . Ms. Santos has decked out that kitchen with everything you might need. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the condo.

When I was searching for a place to stay last month, I knew I wanted a one bedroom condo with a real refrigerator and a real door to the bedroom. As I was looking at the website I made my decision based on the furnishings of each unit, as if I were going to buy the place! Some had ugly furniture and non-updated kitchens. This place was great and had new appliances, a full size fridge, granite countertops and a breakfast bar. The bathroom was updated - large shower stall, but no tub, low profile toilet, and a single sink vanity. Minimal counterspace, but was able to use the linen closet for my toiletries. Fantastic view of the lagoon and we were able to watch the Hilton's nightly Luau from the lanai. A leather sofa sleeper in the living room, along with two chairs. The sliding shoji screens separating the sleeping area from the living area didn't go all the way to the ceiling, but they served their purpose. Had to make a trip to Don Quijote to purchase full size bar of soap and additional toilet paper; a box of Kleenex would have been nice. A little strange to dump your own garbage and no daily housekeeping service. I would definitely stay in this unit again.

Ilikai 1512 - Very nice condo
Reviewed by jma2010
The condo was as nice and in order as described, nice furniture and upgrades. Very good ocean view. I enjoyed my stay. Every morning went down to the beach for a walk (there's a boardwalk along the way.) Location of the Ilikai is great, right on the city bus line, plus stores are across the street and the Aloha Shopping Center is within walking distance. Parks nearby, too. Hotel lobby was in good condition. Five elevators and no problems. The only drawback is the unit is located near the elevators and the mechanical room. If you are noise sensitive, that could be an issue. The fan speeds drop way down later in the night and then everything becomes very quiet. I slept with the lanai door open and that helped with other "white noise" and all went well after that. Since you're on the 15th floor, it should be safe to leave the lanai door open until it gets more quiet. (My brother and sister-in-law stayed in another unit and stopped by. They are not noise sensitive and could not hear the fans!) Otherwise, the unit was wonderful and it was very convenient to be close to the elevators and laundry room in the hotel. Very private, too.

Our stay in 1512 in the Ilikai was very pleasant. The view was nice and it was very comfortable. The $125. per night seemed reasonable as well. The problem I have is the $125. charged for a cleaning fee. If you divide the $125. by the three days stay, the cost of the room comes to $165. + the taxes added to the $125. all comes to around $180. per night. We barely left dust during our stay to warrant such a charge. There are many hotels that we could have stayed in for the same amount that offer daily cleaning and are situated much closer to the action of Waikiki.

Lots of storage and many conveniences in the kitchen i.e. blender, microwave, corkscrew etc etc. It's a mild exercise to walk to the beach and the main tourist areas, however that neck of the woods is a little quieter and has the Outback Steakhouse and Red Lobster close by and the Ala Moana Shopping Centre is only a 10 minute walk. Other reviews we have read on this unit have referred to a noisy fan behind the kitchen wall; we found this a non-issue as some 'white' noise is relaxing and probably helped us sleep!

The smoke alarm battery died & the unit would not shut off even when battery was removed (electric) and the owner's people were very good about coming to replace the battery - actually we replaced it to "shut it up" and we were reimbursed for this expense. There is no dishwasher, but we ate out or at our daughter's larger condo so this was not an issue for us. The livingroom area could use a ceiling fan. There was a sand chair in closet, a boogie board & a beach umbrella but they were all broken. All in all we had a very nice week in this condo, and I would recommend it. We were disappointed in the $120 cleaning fee, as other relatives were not charged or paid a lesser amount. Would check more closely on this cost next time.

Location is ok - it's about 20 mins walk from Waikiki beach (which is quite long - Ilikai is on one end of Waikiki). It is 10 mins walk to Ala Moana, the main shopping complex. Easy to get to the bus stops at Ala Moana. Coffee places, convenience store and restaurants are all near Ilikai. I enjoyed the apartment, it's very comfortable for long term stay. It made me feel at home.
First Time in Hawaii

My wife and I chose Ilikai Hotel 1512 during our stay in Waikiki and we can both say we are pretty picky when it comes to where we stay when traveling abroad. I have only good things to say about condo 1512 and made our stay more enjoyable! The room was really clean and the location was really good. We had no issues checking in and checking out. Lastly, the price could not be beat! I would definitely stay here again.

This updated condo is always clean and has a great view of the ocean and Waikiki Beach. I completed my second stay there last month and can't wait to return. It is so close to the beach, restaurants, etc. I think I'll pass on the rental car next time.

We were in Oahu for our son's wedding. We could not have been happier with the condo. We had family visit us and had plenty of room to entertain and the view was amazing. The location was perfect! We would and have recomended this condo to friends and family. The week we spent here will always be a wonderful memory for us. We loved it!!
Perfect for Us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Condo1512 at the Ilikai. It was exactly as it looked on the web site (that's always a worry). It was clean, very conveniently located for us and had a gorgeous view of the ocean. Having the laundry room across the hall was great and also the closeness to both elevators (normal and bathing suit) was a plus! We would definitely recommend the condo to others. We did suggest that the owner put a fan in the bathroom (for elimination of steam, for noise filtering, etc. The Condo was just perfect for us! Mahalo and Aloha!

We highly recommend Ilikai. It is very central, walking distance to Ala Moana shopping center, safe for children with pool, lagoon and the beach for swimming, without crossing the street.If you need a car free parking at the marina. Having a kitchen is a bonus.Beach towels and mats for the beach were also included. We will be back and highly recommend to our friends. Enjoy
comfortable and friendly

We spent a week here, and it was good time. Our granddaughter found found a lot of toys in the room to play at the beach, and we enjoyed reliable and fast wireless internet connection. Kitchen had everything we needed. However there were some issues - when we arrived, internet and even phone services were disconnected, We spent some time to figure out what need to be plugged in into what. But finally everything worked fine. There also was a problem with bathroom drain at some point, but it was fixed quickly. We would recommend this property.

This was our second stay in this condo. We love the view and the price allowed us to stay longer. We will return for our next Hawaiian vacation. I love the Ilikai for it's Views, location and history, but it's getting old. The condo is remodeled and very nice, but the building is in need of some major work. I was sorry to see that the condo owners and the developer who wanted to remodel the place couldn't aggree, so he pulled out. It's kinda like a ghost town in the shop areas down stairs. The owner of my condo and the Alohacondos people we delt with were great. Thanks for the memories. Andy
Would Definately Return

We were 3 females in an open floorplan bachalor suite - our opinion - more suitable for a couple or 2 persons only. Sofa bed uncomfortable to sleep on. This apartment is small but very clean. Nice furnishings, modern, bright - lovely view of the lagoon and Pacific Ocean from a balcony with a privacy shield. Fully equipped and clean kitchen - immaculate bathroom. We all would return. BUT REMEMBER: you are renting a condo that is located in an old hotel. All of the shops on the main floor were closed accept a small food store that was extremely overpriced. No restaurants/gift stores etc. You will not receive any assisance from Hotel Staff. Parking is extremely overpriced for condo rentors. You are not welcome at the pool. Yes you can use it but the other owners will not make you feel welcome.
