This condo worked out great for us. My girls loved sitting out on the lanai each morning with their breakfast. The view over the lagoon out to the ocean was great, especially when it was time for the fireworks. It was great having access to beach towels, a cooler and all kinds of beach gear. It made our stay less stressful not having to worry about how we would keep the girls busy while we were at the beach. The only negative thing I have to say about the condo is the stale, musty smell. I'm not sure if the air conditioner needs a new filter or if the rugs need to be shampooed, but there...

I have stayed at the ilikai in the past. The location is great. The view from the lanai was great. The room was chosen for a quick two night stay for 4 adults so did the job. But the pull out couch was not too comfy and some things could be updated. We had less than a half roll of toilet paper. So needed to purchase . I had no idea... There were some chairs for beach use but we did not need them. Probably a good place for only two people and not expecting too much, except maybe a great view and location.

We just stayed 2 weeks in Condo 1530 and had a wonderful, relaxing time! You can't beat the spectacular view, the fun atmosphere of the location, and the handy shopping nearby. The condo is self sufficient with everything you need. If you need anything specific, someone will help you with one phone call. We especially like the folding doors that separates the couch area from the bedroom, since my husband and I go to bed at different times. I haven't seen that in any other condo. Thanks again for another enjoyable stay in your condo.

We had a super stay at Ilikai Hotel Condo 1530. Everything we needed was there...sand toys, water toys, beach necessities, plus all the kitchen goods. This was the perfect place for our family. Easy access. The pool is primarily full of people over age 55 so we did feel uncomfortable at times with our 4 year old in there. The pool is just a pool, but warm and the chairs/provided towels are great. The Friday night fireworks were cool. We could also see the luau at the Hawaiian Hilton Village from the lanai which was also cool.

We were delighted with the apartment. It has been tastefully and comfortably furnished; and is fully equipped with everything we could possibly need.The large box, full of beach equipment, is such an unusual, but thoughtful, touch. At our age (mid-80s) we did not use much, but other renters will appreciate that extra service. Overall, we had a delightful stay. Could watch the hulu show across the road if we wanted to; and fortunately it ended early in the evening, so was not a nuisance. Also, a first=class view of the Friday evening fireworks on the beach.

Ilikai #1530 is a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, well decorated and equiped with everything we needed for a great stay (including a blender for drinks). The lanai furniture is very comfortable and the views of the ocean and saltwater pond are good as well. Sue was very easy to work with and everything was seemless. This isn't the middle of Waikiki but close enough and plenty close to lots of restaurants and shopping. We would stay there again.

You are lucky enough to see the fire works from the balcony on a Friday night also. Only negative, please update the loungeroom furniture as my husband took the couch and I was left with a very uncomfortable chair to try and sit on!!

The quality of accommodation was not to our expectation - no bath tub, which we like, poor quality of bed linens, pillows, kitchen crockery and cutlery. Uncomfortable and poor quality of room furniture but it was better than staying hotel. I used to stay at Ilikai during 1980s so I know the place. I suggest there should be a rice cooker and some Japanese dishes to be placed in the kitchen.
We are so glad you enjoyed the view from our condo. We appreciate your comment in your extended review "Most likely, I would recommend this accommodation to my best friend!" We wish, however, that you had let us know of the things that did not meet your expectations. We have a local contact who is available most any time who could have addressed most of your needs. We have multiple good quality king size sheet sets and extra pillows of varying firmness. If our contact had known you were unhappy with those items they could have provided you with other choices. They also could have shown you our 10 cup rice cooker and a large selection of good bake ware and cookware. After your check out and review, housekeeping checked and found that the rice cooker was there. We keep it in the cabinet under the eating bar with all the cookware. I'm so sorry you did not find it. Thank you for your comment on the cutlery. We will check into getting a new set the next time we are at our condo. We are sorry and surprised that you expected a bath tub as the Ilikai condos do not have bathtubs in them. They were built with showers only. I believe there may be a few that the owners put a bath tub in many years ago but they are no longer allowed. The Ilikai is quite an icon in Waikiki. It was the very first Condo-Hotel concept in the country. We had our furniture made for us 5 years ago choosing that style to preserve the original tropical feel of The Ilikai and Old Hawaii. We are sorry that you didn't care for it.
Mahalo again for your review. We hope that we will have the opportunity to have you, and or, your friends as our guests again soon.

Thank you so much for your review. You are very welcome! We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation in our "home away from home". We really appreciate your comments on the couches needing cleaning and want you to know that we did clean them after reading your review. Thank you for letting us know they needed cleaning. We have many guests visit our condo between our personal visits and we don't know the needs until we go for our own visit or our guests tell us like you did. We also have purchased some new sheets for the sofa sleeper. Unfortunately holes in the bottom sheet are a continual problem because the mechanism that closes the sofa sleeper up catches the sheets in the hinges and puts holes in them. We have had brand new sheets get holes the very first time they were used. I'm also sorry the carpet was not clean for you. That is also a problem we have because we so often have a guest moving in the very day a different guest moves out. There is only a 4 hour window between check out and check in for our housekeeping staff to get the condo ready for the next guest. When they discover the carpet needs cleaning they schedule it but we prefer to have them cleaned when we have an opening between guests so that we don't bother the guests during their stay. If however, a guest would want the carpet cleaned during their stay they could request that our contact manager schedule a carpet cleaner.
We are so happy that your would rent our condo again and we look forward to it.

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed our condo and that you wrote in the extended review, "Absolutely, I would recommend this accommodation to my best friend!". We hope that we will be able to provide your accommodations for your next trip to Hawaii. We are sorry that you had some minor problems. We were not aware that the bathroom sink stopper was missing. We will get a new one. The exterior sliding door does lock but it is a bit tricky. Thank you for pointing that out. We will put "locking" instructions on the door. We are sorry that you found a stain on the carpet. We have our carpets cleaned regularly and additionally whenever there is an obvious spot after a guest departs. Since check out time is 11:00am and check in is 3:00pm. our housekeepers only have 4 hours to get the room ready for the next guest when we have back to back reservations. If we need the carpets cleaned we need to have the room vacant so that we can get the carpet cleaners in. There were 3 back to back rentals in a row before your arrival and three after you. We will be having the carpets cleaned again as soon as we can do it without disturbing our guests. The items in the closet are for the convenience and use of our guests.
