Thanks to great management and ease of entry, we were able to immediately settle into our apartment. The keyless door lock was a great convenience throughout our holiday, allowing family members to come and go with ease. We liked the quieter location on the end of Waikiki Beach, yet surrounded by amenities. We ate at Morimotos next door a couple of times, shopped at the nearby Hilton stores, and walked along the beach until we found a good place to swim. The view from the balcony was nice, over the marina, and we watched some great sunsets. Also, I liked the well equipped kitchen, even though we did not cook. The apartment configuration was good too, allowing everyone access to the one bathroom without waking others up in the apartment. My only little wish would be that the balcony was a little larger to allow for a table outside, but this was compensated for by having the inside dining table by the large patio doors, which we opened up. The apartment was also light filled because of the patio doors. One other small desire would be that we would have had a washer and dryer in the apartment. Overall, I can recommend this place highly and would definitely consider another stay here.

Ilikai Marina, Condo 1590 had everything we needed for a great family holiday. Located in the quiet(er) end of town, walking distance to the lagoon, restaurants and shopping. Fireworks from the lanai were a treat, comfy bed and sofa bed, beach chairs and room to have friends over for meals etc made the stay perfect. Mahalo

This is the second time ive stayed at the Ilikai Marina. The last time I stayed on the 5th floor. Unfortunately the elevator was slow and only one on each side was in service, however that is because they were improving them! so next year should be great. This is a great location to Waikiki breakfast ABC store and the sand of the beach. Only bummer on this particular unit was that the bed is really firm/springy, and being that my wife and I are bigger, and the size being a queen we sprung each other off a few times lol. For the price and convenience of having a full kitchen there is really little to complain about. The property manager who handles the rental is awesome. they send you all the details with your room lock number, you get in, grab your car and go straight to the condo and boom! no waiting for check in, not hassle nada. in case you did not know you have to pay for parking, $20 a day not bad and we never had trouble finding a spot close to the elevators, which even in the far corner is not a trek at all. I would recommend this property all day long. oh don't pack beach towels, if you really want wait to get some take home towels at the swap meet or market place...or else you will be bringing back two towels lol. Mahalo!

Reservations and checking in were both really easy and stress free. Condo spacious enough for having few friends over for dinners. Location was great being that it was downtown, but not in the heart of Waikiki. Available coolers, extra beach towels, and adequate amount of cooking supplies. We enjoyed our stay and glad we stayed here rather than a hotel. We have already recommended this place to friends, and hope to come back soon!

Mahalo for your review and feedback. We have a new management team in place now and they are making wonderful new changes to my condo.
We've purchased a new sofa bed based on your feedback that you can see in the new photos and videos. We understand that the balcony is small, but the spectacular views makes up for it. It's one of the few places where you can see the north end of Waikiki Beach and the south end of Ala Moana Beach in an unobstructed view that you have access to nearly everywhere in the condo - even from the bathroom! You can also enjoy the wonder of fireworks above the lagoon at night..
New linens made of high thread count Egyptian cotton are now available and we've replaced the coffee cups. We've also replaced the silverware.
All of the photos and videos are new as of April 2014. Thank you again for your feedback and we'll continue to be responsive to our guests needs.

Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay at condo 1590. We are a family of four, with 2 young children and the condo was the perfect size for us. It is well maintained and has a wonderful view. The location was good and we liked the fact it was an easy walk to lagoon, beach or the ala Moana Center. We did walk into the main strip of Waikiki which took around 25 minutes. Management were easy to deal with and answered any questions we had promptly. The only reason I didn't give the condo five stars was because the complex does not have a pool. We knew this when we booked and didn't think it would bother us at the time, but we were wrong. Especially with having two young children a pool would have been good for us. But other than that could not fault condo 1590. Also as a side note - you are able to leave your bags with the concierge at the Ilikai Hotel for a $1 a bag, if you arrive before 3pm or depart after 11am. We found this very handy.

The view from 1590 is impressive, morning, noon or night. Our 3 night stay was let down as we were not advised at booking or when we arrived that the water would be shut off all of our first day. This would not normaly be a problem if advised in advance but after a long night flight we woke up to no water for showers, flushing toilet or even a cup of tea, not what you want on your first morning when you are still jet lagged and unfamilar with your surroundings. We would not have booked our 3 night stay if we had known in advance and would not of paid the full price. It is my guess that this was why we were not told at the time of booking and not even a note was left in the room

Condo 1590 is a very nice appartment on the 15th floor of Ilikai Marina, guaranteeing you awesome views towards the harbour (straight), the Hilton lagoon (left) and ala Moana Park (right). It is a nice 15-20 minute walk to the main waikiki strip but very close to some aBC stores, where you can stock up on some groceries as well as numerours restraurants. Tip: There is a larger supermarket called "food pantry" within walking distance on 438 Hobron Lane. Parking is very convenient (20 $ per day) and the elevator takes you directly to the 15h floor. The 4-digit key code that opens the condo-door is also very handy as you do not have to get and return any keys. The kitchen is remodeled and the bed super comfy. The only minor criticism would be the bathtub that is a bit dated and could use a makeover. Apart from that, the condo has the perfect size for one couple and I would highly recommend it to everyone who is searching for good comfort with a 5 star view in Waikiki.

This attractive condo was perfect for our family of 3 (2 adults and a teen). The views of the harbor from the living room and balcony and bedroom were fabulous. The kitchen was well stocked with necessities and we ate a few meals there. The bedroom was separated from the living room by a sliding wall-door. The location of the condo was great -- steps away from the Waikiki beaches and fabulous restaurants -- and a short walk to the mall as well. It was a very good location too for my husband's business meetings in Honolulu. We would definitely stay there again!

Ilikai Marina #1590 was the last condo on our recent trip to Hawaii, and it was love at first sight. The description from the rental agent was really helpful and we found the Hotel easily. You can park directly in the complex; for hotel guests it's 20 $ per day. So it was just a short trip to the elevator and up to the 15th story. What a view! The Marina directly below and Waikiki to our left. Every night we stood on the tiny lanai and toasted the sunset. The condo is just big enough for two, obviously recently renovated, clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit firm, but still okay. There are serveral abc-stores within a few minutes walking distance where you can stock up on groceries, the Shops at ala Moana are two bus stops or about 15 minutes walking distance, where you can stock up on absolutely everything... Waikiki Beach with its shops and restaurants wil take about ten minutes walking - and what a beautiful evening stroll it was, under the full moon *sigh. Tip: try the "Red Lobster" downstairs, we absolutely loved our dinner there!

We just got back from our wonderful family vacation in Hawaii. Our stay at the Ilikai Marina condo 1590 was a pleasant surprise. The apartment was clean and the views were beautiful, but there were a lot of upgrades which made the condo much nicer than we thought; Starting in the kitchen there was a brand new toaster, new kitchen towels and I believe the coffee pot was pretty new too. The living room chair is new, and there is a beautiful brand new dining room set, the bed had a nice new comforter, sheets, and pillows, and was a lot more comfortable then I thought it would be from reading past reviews. The Lanai is small but not a big deal, we just moved one of the chairs and little table out of the way so we could go out there and enjoy the gorgeous views of the rainbows over the marina, the lagoon by the Hilton, and the breath taking sunsets over the ocean. One of my favorite assets was the front door entry...it has a 4digit code that Kat gives you before you get there, to lock and unlock, so you don't have to worry about those card keys that I always tend to loose on vacation. Thank You to Kat and Jim for everything the only bummer is I forgot my free tote bag.

We lucked out finding this rental for the first part of our honeymoon. Every morning we opened our curtains to look out over the marina and we saw some really nice sunsets from there. It was a little disappointing that the lanai was so small but we made the best of it. It was in a great location too, not right on the beach but a short walk away from all the hustle and bustle. It was convenient to hit the store, the Pro Bowl activities that were going on in the Hilton Hawaiian Village as well as access to our friends who were also staying at the Hilton. We couldn't have asked for anything better for the price. If there was one other downside I would say the bed was too hard, but that is personal preference I guess.

This was our first stay at the Ilikai Marina Rm 1590, but not our first visit to Hawaii. Pricing was excellent, location, the best, for my wife and I love to work out and stroll around ala Moana Park in the early morning and at night. Waikiki beach is also an easy stroll away. Room 1590 is a single bedroom ocean and marina view, my favorites. Quiet and relaxing with a functional kitchen and living room, it is a great location which I will return to again. The Lani is very small and a bit crowded with the plastic lawn chairs and table. I personally didn't care about this for my wife and I toasted the setting sun each and every evening giving thanks for another wonderful day. During January, the sun shines very brightly into this apartment making it hot,making going onto the Lani impossible until the Sun starts to set. Closing the curtains brings back a more comfortable setting. The bathroom is a standard bathroom nothing fancy, watch the towel rack on the wall, it will pull off if you try to pull a towel out of it..no big thing, just snap it back in place. The bedroom has a queen size bed which is comfortable, the pillows are lacking substance and are thin, so doubling up with two pillows helps. Storage in this room is good. The living room has a foldout sofa bed which is OK to sit on, lying on the sofa pillows gets uncomfortable after a while due to the gap between the pillows on the chair. The single wicker chair pillows are old and very uncomfortable to sit on. I recommend new pillows for that chair, then all would be great. Tv works fine. Beach supplies can be found in the front closet near the kitchen which saves you from buying these items for the beach. Overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai Marina Condo. We parked in the parking garage on parking level F, 4th floor because there was never any problems finding a parking spot and the elevators are easy to get to. Enjoy your stay at Rm 1590, we did,and will again. Aloha

The location was great for the conference we were attending at the beginning of our stay. The last 4 nights we visited with family and took a drive around the island. Our room was quiet and very comfortable. We did not cook, but it was nice to have it stocked with everything we would need if we wanted.** The connection to the internet needs improvement. The cords need to be replaced. We traveled with our own so it was not a problem. Plan to shop for groceries before you arrive at the condo, you are in a resort zone, so no food stores nearby.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying in apartment 1590 recently for one week. Kat, who it was organised through was extremely professional, very proactive and had provided us with all the information we needed. Arrival was so easy and well explained by Kat and we were so impressed with the spectacular sunset view from the lanai. Yes, it is small, but that was expected due to previous comments we had read. My friend found the queen size bed extremely comfortable in the room and I found the sofa queen bed really comfortable for me too. For us this apartment was ideal as we had wanted two separate sleeping areas, a nice view and we wanted a place not too far from Waikiki action- though not amongst the hustle and bustle either. This was perfect. We were able to do 15 minute power walks along the beach to get into Waikiki Beach, though had the option on a $7 cab ride in if we wanted to as well... We will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends. Thank you Kat for being so efficient also...

The view was excellent - the best part of the experience, but there were numerous problems. The deadbolt key did not work--difficult to deal with for the new and tired arrival. The bed was so hard and uncomfortable that my husband had to sleep on the pull out sofa (first time he has ever slept away from me). There was no flat sheet for that bed. The coffee pot was too small for the coffee machine so didn't release the coffee. But Jim and Kat responded and resolved problems immediately. But why so many problems?? We expected a relaxing vacation, not a series of problems to resolve.
Thank you for noting that your concerns were addressed immediately.
For a follow up, the dead bolt that you had trouble with was replaced with a new keyless electronic entry security system.
For Guests that need a softer mattress, we added a mattress topper to the inventory.

Our stay at Ilikai Marina Condo 1590 for a week at the end of March 2011 was an outstanding experience marred only by the accidental severing of the water mains by road constructors (happily only hours before we shifted out).

Moreover, with a balcony looking out of the waterfront, this was indeed a case of experiencing Waikiki in the front row but at an affordable price.

Waking to the view, of ocean,boats,people in water,planes,ships it never stops,but that adds to the atmosphere of this apartment. We didn't dine out, instead we bought dinner at Red Lobster (next door), drinks from the aBC store across the street, raced upstairs & sat at the table & watched the lights of the surrounding area. The fireworks on Friday night (8pm) what a bonus. The downside - the bed was hard.

I ended up in Honolulu by myself with family members staying at a hotel on the strip. I felt my accommodations were far better than theirs, and for about the same price. I had a gorgeous view of the Gilligan's Island marina, they had a view of the roof of an adjoining building. They were smack in the middle of the touristy area, I could get to it and away from it at will, which I loved. The staff at aloha Condos could not have been more helpful and bent over backward to take care of me. Also, you are right next to the Hilton Complex, which is huge, and easy to access. You can use their stores and restaurants, and their beach, and no one bothers you. It is kind of fun to watch all of the weddings that constantly go on during the weekends. The closest Starbucks is also over there. Proximity to their grounds more than made up for the condo not really having much of a lobby area...and they have fireworks on Friday evening which are really close to this condo. A couple of hints. Don't rent a car and don't use the cheesy tourist trolley: it is way overpriced! Also, you'll spend all of your time trying to find parking in the Waikiki area. The city bus is easy to use, especially if you have Google maps on a PDa. Each trip is $2.25, and if you make them give you a voucher for the return trip then that is for free. $17 a pop to keep a car overnight seemed high, and aloha Condos makes sure that everyone understands that cost. You can rent a car in three separate places near the condos if you want to tour the island for a single day or two. Don't take it into the downtown areas at night...oh, and they have a guard on duty at the harbor condos every single night. I really appreciated that! Felt safe everywhere but downtown Honolulu (not the tourist strip, but over where the government buildings are) in the evening, even though it was still light out (had a function I had to attend).
