My Wife and I have stayed in this same condo many times in recent years. Each time it is like coming home to us. Helen Ting is a joy to work with and the condo itself is always pristine and clean. What can I say, the views every night, the fireworks every Friday along with the Aloha show on the patio, a life of leisure. The condo is newly rennovated and contains all things you could ever want. Walking distance to more than I can say. The value far exceeds the price. There is free WiFi, long distance to Canada and US calls all free. The digital keepad for the door means you dont have to take any valuables to the beach with you. Mahalo Mahalo Mahalo!

This condo was very clean, well appointed,nicely updated and decorated. It had views of the ocean and the harbor. Waikiki was just a short walk along the beach. We were able to walk to ala Mohana Mall for shopping. There are restaurants and shopping on site and close by. This condo would be perfect for a romantic getaway or for senior couple traveling alone.

Friends recommended the Ilikai and I'm so happy they did. Easy to find just the right room and the price was right. The rooms were wonderful, all the basics and plenty of extra nice items as well like: beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards. Sitting on the lanai each morning with coffee was perfect. Easy access to everything. Walking distance to the beach, shopping, dining. This is where we will stay the next time we visit Hawaii.

We have stayed in the Ilikai several times. Last year we booked 1639 and we were very happy with it so this year we scheduled our vacation around the availability of this unit. I guess you can tell how much we like it. The location is great for us to visit relatives on Oahu, close to bus, restaurants, shopping, etc. We really like the marina and ocean view from the 16th floor. This condo is nicely updated with everything we need for our stay. The owner is great to work with - fast email communication and she went above and beyond in getting something fixed, even after we assured her that we could deal with it as it was. We are looking forward to returning to this "home" on our next trip.

The location is great near both ala Moana and the Waikiki area. There are many stores nearby to pick up staples for breakfast lunch and dinner, and may restaurants in various price ranges. We had a dinner at the top of the Ilikai one night and were surprised at how nice and reasonable it was for a very fancy place. The only problem is parking. If you want to park reasonably you have to be at the right place the right time. We used valet parking at $25 a day to avoid all that searching and walking back to hotel. I thought that $132 for cleaning after 4 days a bit much.

Stayed in this condo for five nights and could not have made a better decision for lodging. The condo is extremely clean, very well-equipped (kitchen, linens, beach items), modern amenities, excellent view of ocean and ala Wai Marina, and quiet. Given that it is a one-bedroom, it is quite spacious. We were in town for Uh's graduation ceremony and were able to host a dinner for 8 people very comfortably. Valet parking is $25/day which was a bit high (I thought) but it was well worth it given that nearby self-parking was $20/day. The valets were courteous and the car was delivered quickly. Online reservation process was effortless and owner response was excellent when contacted. Would highly recommend this unit and would most definitely stay here again.

Everything you need is close by from grocery stores to restaurants. The view from the lanai was so spectacular at sunset we ordered out and had dinner there on several occasions. Having a laundry room available was also helpful. Every possible means of transportation stopped at the front of the hotel. The only suggestion we have is that we found the sofa bed uncomfortable (felt springs through the thin mattress) and had to use it in the sofa configuration. That worked fine with us since we had only three adults. There is no question we would use the condo again on our next visit and recommend it highly.

My wife and I decided to go to Hawaii to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. My wife spent months on the internet trying to find just the right holiday. She looked at all of the different hotels and weighed the plus' and minus'. We finally decided on Unit 1639 at the Ilikai. What a great call. We loved this suite. We actually had friends come with us and they stayed in a different room at the Ilikai so we were able to do a little comparison while we were there. Although their room had two beds there was no storage so they had to live out of their suitcases. We had nice big clothes and linen closets. Their room felt like a hotel room, ours felt like a home. They did not have the same services as us, such as free internet, free long distance, and our tv service was better. Although we loved the rest of Waikiki, this room was the highlight of our trip. The view of the marina is great and the sunsets are fantastic. The Ilikai is located at the end of the beach but this was not a problem for us. It is no more than a short walk to anything. We will happily stay in this suite at the Ilikai again.

We loved every moment from the friendly greeting by the Porter who helped us with all our bags to the great location only minutes walk from Ala Moana Shopping Centre and Waikiki shops/beach. The owners have created a very comfortable unit although within a small area. It is probably better suited to just one couple, however we had our 11 and 12 year old daughters with us and they were comfortable enough sleeping on the fold out couch. I must admit given the cost I had warned my family not to expect much having stayed at places up to that point that were 2 or 3 times the price, however once I opened the door we were all blown away at how beautifully the unit was furnished. Also the kitchen had everything you needed to cook a family meal etc if you wanted. The views from the balcony over the harbour were also quite relaxing. Overall I found the unit much quieter than previous accommodation we had stayed in at Waikiki Beachwalk. The only thing that would make this unit better would be if it had laundry facilities but there really isn't the room. There may be facilities elsewhere within the complex, to be honest I didn't ask. The owners may like to replace the locks getting into the unit as we found them a bit tricky sometimes to get open. Other than that I would honestly say that if you are a couple looking to stay in Honolulu you couldn't do any better. Thoroughly recommend and if we come back to Honolulu it is definately where we will stay!

Really good interior design -- its a small space, but the layout really compliments the area so you never feel cramped or overcrowded by the furniture. Very modern and very clean. Although the boats were not much to look at, the sunrise/sunsets from this condo were awesome. You can even spot the surfers on the distant beach, and see regular cruise ships and freighters pass by. Our only concerns were the sliding door lock and the main bed. We had our 3yr with us, and there was no way to securely shut the door -- so ended up barricading the doors at night with furniture...lol. That and the main bed was really uncomfortable -- our son definitely scored with the comfy sofa bed. Re: Ilikai in general - many stores downstairs (lobby area) and the on-location restaurant were boarded up and vacant during our stay, so it has seen better days. The hotel next-door (what you see from lanai) is still undergoing renovation, but construction noise was not an issue. So barring the lobby area, the courtyard gardens were gorgeous. Plus every evening they light the torches outside and have a brief conch shell ceremony around sunset. Also has to be mentioned -- the shared lagoon in walking distance directly before the beach was awesome. They stock it with tiny fish, so all the kids had a blast trying to spot/chase/catch them. Turned out to be a lifesaver when we found out our son thought the sound of waves was 'too scary'!
Thank you for comments about our condo.
I will work to get a lock added to the sliding door to make it more secure in the future. Also, you mentioned that the main bed was uncomfortable. This concerns me greatly because I would like all of my guests to sleep well. Other guests have commented that the bed is extremely comfortable.

The Ilikai is not as well maintained as we would have hoped. The neighboring hotel (which is part of the view) appears to be condemned or forgotten, with windows papered over and a pool full of brown water. The condo itself was nicely appointed, but the building fire alarms went off repeatedly in the night, requiring us to at least get up and call the desk, and at worst carry our frightened 5-year-old down many flights of stairs in the middle of the night. Could be a nice vacation spot after building and area maintenance are completed.
