Once Again at the Condo
We are repeat customers. Nice condo, well maintained, lots of little extras like chairs, etc.

1304 does it well
We had a wonderful time in 1304. The view of the marina and sunsets are relaxing. The unit is quiet and laid out very efficiently. The furnishings are comfortable and feel sturdy. The location is convenient with quick access to the bus, to Don Quijote... more and Walmart for groceries, walking distance to the park, the mall, and the center of action in Waikiki. All in all it was an amazing trip with 1304 serving us well. less
— Lani, Stayed 07/23/2019
Unit was amazing. Absolutely loved it. Had everything you need if it’s not there you don’t need it. I would stay here again.
— Katy, Stayed 06/29/2019
Another great stay
My third time staying with Aloha condos. Great location, everything as described. Great views and well appointed. Although you are in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki the Ilikai is quiet, no parties or loud activities on lanais (there was one incident of loud music... more that lasted 2 minutes!). I love staying here and i doubt there is any better value for money in Waikiki. Mary. less

A wonderful November in 1304!
This was our first ever extended getaway to a warm climate; previous trips to the sun have been for a mere 7-10 days. We chose Honolulu because we knew that if needed, emergency health care would be reliable and it is an easy, nonstop flight... more from Vancouver. In a previous visit in February, we checked out many condos near Waikiki and chose the Ilikai because of it's proximity to the water and to shops for groceries, the buildings are well-cared for, as well as the location away from the madness of Waikiki. 1304 has been lovingly well-maintained and the owners obviously care about their suite and the comfort of any guests. We had most meals on the lanai (it was such a lovely place to eat breakfast and supper, why would you go to one of the overpriced Honolulu restaurants?) and found we could prepare simple meals quite readily with the implements and dishes provided in the kitchen. Thank you! For two people, 1304 was perfect. We enjoyed the various entertainment offered by the hotel on Fridays and Sundays, although could have done without the much-hyped 3 minutes of Hilton fireworks on Fridays. The beautiful sunsets are all that you need. Yes, you couldn't avoid the music but it always ended early so was not a disturbance; nor was the loud yoga instructor at the hotel next door a problem! One has to be realistic about what your are likely to experience at a downtown condo that happens to be on the beach. We only had noisy neighbours once for a few short hours. Only complaint was with the way the Ilikai handled a fire alarm one night at 1230 a,m.; we had to evacuate but were never told what exactly happened, and even after finally getting the "all clear" over the loudspeaker, the alarm continued to go off for about 2 hours telling us to get out. Very confusing! Ilikai needs to get their act together; a fire alarm is a serious issue when there are elderly people and families with small children in the building. One addition to the unit would be a shopping cart on wheels that one could use for grocery shopping. A pineapple is heavy to carry home, along with other groceries, so such a cart would be most desirable. But thank you for the many cloth shopping bags. Groceries are quite pricy in Honolulu, but goes with it's idyllic island location. Thank you to 1304 owners and to Aloha Condos management! Well done! less
— Louise and Lawrence, Stayed 12/21/2018
aloha Louise and Lawrence,Thank you so much for all you kind words about the condo at the Ilikai Hotel. We are always happy to see that the condo worked well for guests and they are happy with their stay. It is a great location, great views and a great condo. We are sorry that the Hotel had some disturbances with the fire alarms one night of your stay. I am sure that safety of course is first so being causious is always a good thing. We have not herad of this happening before so it is not a normal occurance.As you mention this is a great location but as you realize with a big city atmosphere there will be noise to some degree as with millions of people it cant be avoided. I do believe though the 13th floor location for this condo does help. Thank you again for your review.
We enjoyed our time at the Ilikai Hotel Condos. It was an easy walk to Ala Moana shopping centre, and to the main part of Waikiki for dinner. The condo was very clean and well equipped, and had a lovely view out over the water.
— K, Stayed 11/05/2018
review stay Oct 16-19, 2018
The condo and location and view were excellent. My only complaint is that all the dishes and silverware were filthy. We had to wash everything before using them. thanks!
— Elizabeth, Stayed 10/26/2018
Aloha Elizabeth,Thank you for taking the time to post a review for the unit 1304 at the Ilikai Hotel. This condo is located in a great location close to everything and the views are exceptional! The condo is setup for being able to prepare meals which is a great option. We wish you would have let us know about the dishes as we certainly would have sent someone over right away. What might have happened is the previous guests might have done the dishes and put them away and did not properly clean them. The housekeepers of course do any dirty dishes about the kitchen, but do assume that the dishes in the cabinets are clean. We might have to have the housecleaners take some time to look into the cabinets as a whole.
This condo has everything you need for a self catered holiday. The bed is super comfortable and the location is ideal if you want the ‘quieter’ end of town, beside the beautiful lagoon and eye catching marina. The beach is an easy 5 min walk... more and the Ala Moana shopping centre is just 2 blocks away. The bus stop for all attractions is at the front of the hotel. I loved my stay here and would highly recommend it for couples and young families. less
— Felicity, Stayed 10/06/2018
Hey, This apartment is great place to stay. Excellent location, the property is nice and clean, in good condition, has good space and the amenities all work. The property has excellent views of the sunset, and I would definitely stay here again!! The management company... more was so easy to work with, had great communication. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to any prospective holiday maker :) less
— Adam, Stayed 09/11/2018
Enjoyed the stay. Very clean, modern and spacious condo. Great location. Wonderful views and in the heart of numerous amenities. Highly recommend aloha condos and will stay here again next time we want to leave winter weather here in Alberta. Website and contact very friendly... more and accomodating. Thankyou Aloha Condos. less
— David, Stayed 08/25/2018
This was a great stay. The Ilikai is within walking distance to Waikiki beach, but just outside the whole hustle and bustle. Lots of options to eat -- you can walk to the mall for an amazing food court, or just stay right around the... more hotel. The bed is super comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting on the deck with coffee in the morning and wine in the evenings. The only suggestion I would make is to replace the mats in the bathroom with something absorbent. The kitchen mats in there now would remain wet for quite some time after a shower, which often made for a surprise if you went in there at night. less
— Leah, Stayed 08/20/2018
We found the unit clean cool and comfortable. The instructions were easy to follow and understand, thus no problems were encountered. Opening the door lock and connecting to WiFi was no problem at all. There was shopping and retaurant tips as well as bus service... more info. The kitchen was well equipped though we didn’t use it.. The convenient location near AlaMoana shopping mall and tour buses stops... was right at the doorstep. There was the ocean and yatch view direct from the lanai. We had a blissful stay and appreciate the hospitality and thoughtfulness of the owner. Mahalo 😊 less
— Nida, Stayed 08/10/2018
Again, a very pleasant stay
We returned to the same room we had in 2016 and again enjoyed the facilities and particularly the view. In fact, we are planning to spend another night in the same room in early September on our way back to Australia.
— Dennis, Stayed 08/01/2018
Thought overall very good just a few things There was no broiler rack in the oven, no potato masher A dishwasher makes a holiday complete Some nice fresh pillows would have been nice also the sheets especially the white ones were just plain awful, and... more the tea towels were worn and looked dirty as were the oven mits, the toaster could do with replacing. We had 3 and a bit weeks there and it was very comfortable just actioning The above things would make it really comfortable. less

1304 Ilikai Hotel
This was an excellent apartment. The hosts put a lot of thought and friendly aloha into their lovely condo. Clean, furnished nicely, very comfortable bed, great lanai and view of the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, where I grew up. I would definately stay in this... more condo again and hope to book it for next hear. Mahalo for your wonderful hospitality and lovely apartment. less
— Colleen, Stayed 07/10/2018
We enjoyed this condo very much. Great location and clean place. We would definitely stay here again!
— Heather, Stayed 06/26/2018
we really enjoyed our stay in Condo. Its showing its age a bit but we couldnt complain as it was well equipted with all the necessities . a very enjoyable week
— Jane, Stayed 06/04/2018
The unit has been the same over the past few years that we've stayed there. It is like a home away from home for us and we hope when we leave it is as clean as we found it. Because of this we could do... more with one less cleaning per month. less
— Kenneth, Stayed 03/17/2018
Wonderful stay in 1304. Well maintained unit overlooking my old digs at the marina. Got in some great swims at the magic island lagoon, and enjoyed mostly outstanding weather. In the heat of summer I think an east facing unit might be preferable but in... more January this one was perfect! It even has louvered screens for a bit of shade when needed and a nice fan to augment the tropical breezes and a super comfy stressless style recliner to take it all in in comfort. One complaint if you could call it that, it would be nice if the wifi code was written in big letters/numbers on a piece of tape on top of the box, maybe with a big arrow pointing to it! less
— Renard, Stayed 02/07/2018
We love the vibe of the Ilikai and the surrounding marina. Great view and easy access. We will continue to comeback.
— Joseph , Stayed 11/13/2017
Great...and thanks. The Owners
I've stay at this condo several times. It's very convenient close to pretty much anything. The down fall on this last trip was pool was shut down, I had some niece and nephew wanted to come visit and hang out bit couldn't. Parking is quite... more expensive, I don't get it if we stay in private condo parking is more. Does not make sense but it is what it is. Over all decent place if you don't like hotel stay... less
— Kingsley, Stayed 10/30/2017
Aloha, Thank you for your review for the unit 1304 at the Ilikai Hotel. We do appreciate your feedback. The condo is very conveniently located and close to everything! We were not aware that the pool had been closed but it seems that there are some renovations going on but the good news is the 2nd pool was open to use during your stay and we hope you took advantage of that. Also the Lagoon is just steps away and is another option for swimming with calm and a bit warmer waters. I wanted to note though that the pool and amenities are only for guests that are staying at the hotel, so therefore your niece and nephew would not have been allowed to the pool. I am not sure if you have ever had to use the parking before but pretty much everwhere you stay in Oahu, there are parking charges. Actually parking around this hotel does have several options that vary in price depending where you park. We do give these options for inquiring guests. The guests at the hotel or the private units all do have the same price for parking. Another option is to use public transportation instead of renting a car, such as the great bus system which can be accessed just steps from the hotel. We hope this information helps if you choose to stay again.
Great View with Convenient Location
The Condo is situated a short walking distance from Waikiki Beach and has a great view of the Marina. Check in an Check out procedures were smooth and easy. The Condo is adequately equipped for a week or longer vacation stay. It has a full... more kitchen, King Sized Bed and Sleeper Sofa. The only recommendations I have would be to get rid of the carpet and go with tile flooring as it is much easier to keep clean. One of the glass panes on the Lainai door needs to be replaced and was covered with cardboard. less
— Michael, Stayed 09/07/2017
aloha, Thank you so much for your review for te unit 1304 at the Ilikai Hotel. The condo is in a great location and convenient to everything. We are glad that you found the processes to go smoothly and you found the unit to have what you needed. Flooring I guess is a matter of preference but the owner will look at your suggestion. The glass unforunately was broken recently by a guest and the replacement process has been timely but it is in the works. Thank you again for your review and we hope you can come again.
What a great find!
What a great find! I was a bit nervous about pre paying and the validity of the site but I needn't have worried. The unit was as described and the photos reflected reality. The view was wonderful and the kitchen well furnished. Having an access... more code entry is great. No waiting at reception when you arrive (and depart) and no swipe cards to worry about. We were two single adults traveling. Both the bed and the sofa bed were really comfortable and having a slider to close off the bedroom was great, it gave us privacy at night but opened up to a large room by day. I'm not sure how comfortable it would be with more than two adults, might get a bit cramped but certainly our stay was wonderful and I am recommending Aloha Condos to all my friends. less
— Mary, Stayed 07/23/2017
Aloha We selected suite 1304, firstly for its views and secondly for its central location – we were not disappointed. The suite is nicely appointed, comfortable bed, clean and well presented. The beach gear in the locker box on the lanai was an added bonus.... more For any one new to Honolulu, on Friday nights be sure to participate in the fireworks and Hula next door at the Hilton. We will more than likely return to Honolulu and there is no reason why we would not select suite 1304 again. Aloha Condos & Homes provided an awesome service. Their communications was first class and timely. We highly recommend these guys for your next booking. Bruce & April New Zealand less
— Bruce & April, Stayed 06/24/2017
Ilikai, Unit 1304
We enjoy 1304 mainly because of the view and the central location. It is kept clean and has been updated. The afternoon can be hot, being in the direct sun, but the fan we bought, and left, took care of that problem. We have been... more coming to the Ilikai for several years, the last six or seven years in 1304. We look forward to it each year. It's a bit like coming home. less
— Kenneth and Helen Reid, Stayed 03/17/2017
Aloha, Kenneth and Helen..you are the best! Thanks for the fan. I keep telling my husband that we need one in the ceiling...maybe this year! Best wishes and thank you. Lenz's
Loved suite 1304. Great view, quiet and well appointed. Everything one needs is in kitchen. Read a great book that was in bookshelf to. Would stay again.
— MURK, Stayed 02/08/2017
Well, thanks so much, and we appreciate that you feel as we do about 1304 ;-) -Susan & Jim
Enjoyed our 9 night stay in 1304. Great view. Super comfortable bed. Clean and well appointed although a bit dated. Appreciated the box full of beach extras that were on the lanai. For our last night in Waikiki we had to book into a regular... more Ilikai hotel newly renovated 24th floor suite. It was very nice but hardly worth the 75% surcharge. Would love to return for a longer stay in 1304 if it is available less
— Peter, Stayed 11/15/2016
Well, Peter..thanks for your review..we hope you do return..check out the website Alohacondos.com 😊 1304 Ilikai
The accommodations exceeded our expectations.

Well, Thank you very much..we'll hope for your return..and we hope that you had a splendid time on your 40th anniversary! The Lenz's (also in IL...Chicago to be exact.)
Condo 1304--Well equipped, wonderful views
We really loved our stay in the Ilikai Hotel Condo 1304 for our vacation this year. Everything was as described. Kitchen was particularly well equipped including coffee maker, toaster, oven and microwave. Window views of the marina and ocean were great. King sized bed was... more very comfortable, and we had a choice of pillows. For early arrival before 3 pm, leave your bags with the hotel baggage storage on the main floor. Hotel pool is warm, free towels supplied, and a great place with kids, also. Corner air conditioner tended to make that corner too cold and bed area warm. Fan helped the circulation of air. We found the Foodland on Hebron to be the best place for all our food needs. There are also a nearby ABC and a store in the hotel. For dining, we loved the 24-hour Wailana restaurant at Kalia, the Cinnamon cafe for breakfast, and Red Lobster next store for seafood. The boardwalk that starts at the Hilton lagoon goes all along the beach down to the Outrigger. (The Hilton has a lot of restaurants open to the public, too) The Zoo and Aquarium at the eastern end of Waikiki are fun for children; we went by bus ($1 if you are 65) rather than walk the 1 1/4 miles. The beach at Ala Moana park is great for children as it stays shallow 100 ft out.(10 minute walk to the west) less
— Reginald, Stayed 09/16/2016
Wow, you really covered 'the waterfront' in your review..thanks for it and glad you enjoyed the Waikiki scene from 1304 Ilikai.
Love that lanai
We enjoyed the views from the lanai with the boats, the rainbows and amazing sunsets. Also the pool and the proximity to activities. We would like to do it again next August.
— Edie, Stayed 08/28/2016
TWe really enjoyed our stay. The condo had a great view, was well equipped interior-wise but newer a hair dryer, had a comfortable bed, was centrally located to everything & had a lovely swimming pool. Even though the ala moana centre is close for shopping,... more make sure you visit a Ross store &/or the waikele outlet stores. Great rental car location across the road - keep yr eye out for really good deals before you leave home - Alamo a good start. less
— Sally, Stayed 07/29/2016
Aloha Sally, Thanks for the review! The view is exceptional and we do try to have all your needs met in equipping the condo. You could not be in a better location with the central location. Thanks and please come again!
We love this condo but were disappointed this visit in the limited supplies. No toilet paper beyond the initial roll...likewise with paper towels. Not even pepper in the kitchen...salt only. These items are not required, but since the ABC store across the street doesn't stock... more paper products, obtaining more was a pain. Seems to me an extra roll of t.p. would be nice. Maybe a single box of Kleenex, too. less
— Rebecca, Stayed 06/23/2016
Your review is appreciated. There should have been toilet paper for a week and the manager is apprised of the glitch. We are looking at other non-perishable items being supplied. The store on the first floor of the Ilikai is well stocked. Thanks for your comment. Susan
We really enjoy #1304, having stayed there over the past 5 years. It's well kept, updated, and feels like home to us. We also appreciate the consideration re our dollar and the rent charged.
— Kenneth and Helen Reid, Stayed 04/09/2016
Thank you for being return guest and it is such a complement to know you feel this unit is home to you. We do our best to keep the unit in get shape, clean and accommodating. We hope you can continue to stay with us!
week in 1304
1304 came as advertised. We personally are used to and appreciated a King Bed. As stated in many reviews, the view is awesome. Watching the endless stream of fishing and sail charters coming and going was a great diversion. 1304 is situated in the complex... more such that the sun doesn't hit the lanai until mid afternoon, keeping things cool until then... then staying until the 6 awesome sunsets we experienced. Well appointed condo with beach chairs, rolly bag for beach and shopping, which we took advantage of on several occasions. Kitchen was super...only suggestion is to add a blender. The only reason we couldn't give a five star rating was the construction noise that disturbed the ambiance during the day...obviously not the fault of aloha condos or the owners.. less
— Rob E, Stayed 12/13/2015
Aloha, Thank for your review. We welcome feedback so that we can ensure a great experience for our guests. We try really hard to describe our units so that our guests know exactly what they have booked. The condo is well equipped with all one might need and the location and views make it extra special. The owner is taking your suggestion about getting a blender for the unit and it will be available soon. Unfortunately we cannot stop progress and especially in a busy city. There will be construction from time to time that is out of our control. However, we do our best to give notice whenever we are informed.
Lovely Condo #1304
My husband and I enjoyed our 10 day stay at the condo. The view from the lanai was breathtaking with rainbows and beautiful sunsets! The kitchen was well-stocked, the king sized bed comfy, adequate water pressure from the shower but no tub, lots of storage,... more good wifi, working AC and much needed fan was available. The complaints are minor: seating (sofa, bar stools, leather recliner was just okay) was uncomfortable (condo should hold 4 people but in my opinion is adequate for 2) Email sent ahead of the trip (asking about parking) was never answered and too many copies of rules, rules on the door, in every email, and even one about taking off your shoes... rules, rules, rules... Did not give me the feeling of aloha. Nothing personal from the owner made the condo feel more business than being invited to someone's home but again, that's minor. We were visiting Hawaii, not the owner of Condo #1304. We would recommend The Ilikai Hotel and Condos to family and friends. less
— Suzan, Stayed 10/31/2015
Aloha, We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Ilikai Hotel unit 1304 and you would recommend it to others. The views are spectacular and the sunsets are a bonus! The condo does sleep 4. We like to have the option because often people are looking to save money and do not mind having the sleeping options in one area. We do disclose the rules from the owner as well as the complex as it is necessary like anywhere you go. We let everyone know in the emails sent out as well as posted in the condos to make sure they are read. We do have to protect ourselves and our owners from guests who do not want to comply with the rules or say they did not know about them. Regarding the shoes off in the condo, this is part of the island living. It is done out of respect and tradition as it is part of everyday life there.
A Top Hawaiian Experience
Completely satisfied and beyond expectations. Would be 5 stars but there ARE superbly plush sites in Hawaii if coin no object. This was the best check-in procedure and hotel room access we can recall, without the tour bus mobs that inflict even the most pricey... more competition. The room site and furnishings were handsome and delightful, and the owners had been truly thoughtful in providing for all reasonable contingencies. We felt that we had been invited to a friend's vacation digs. The ocean and Honolulu shore views across the yacht harbor from the broad sliders and balcony were grand. We have always enjoyed the Ilikai site (from 1966), and consider the access to Waikiki, Ala Moana and proper restaurants just fine. It was too (and unusually) hot for late August, with even the natives wilting, but the 1304 site did well (the sliding terrace shutters an appreciated plus. We do hope to inhabit 1304 again in the future, and will specifically request it. The Robinsons. less
— Gene & Carol, Stayed 09/11/2015
Pleasant studio/one bedroom with a view
We've stayed in this condo a couple of times and have enjoyed it both times. It's technically. One bedroom, but with sliding screen doors opens up to be a large studio when there are just the two of us. The kitchen is complete and open... more to the living room. Condiments and such are minimal so plan to pick up your own spices, etc. we love looking out over the yacht harbor from every room! The sofa can sleep more people if you have kiddoes with you. Nice but not pretentious. Casual comfort. We start with this one every time we search. less
— Rebecca, Stayed 09/05/2015
Thanks, Rebecca, for your thoughtful review of 1304 Ilikai..I will try to get the cleaning people to leave spices, condiments, etc. it IS a help..and not a difficult thing to do. Thanks for reinforcing what the owners want, also :)
The booking and entry process went great (door code access very helpful). The condo had a lovely view of the ocean and the marina with a roomy enough lanai. Everything you need is there with a well stocked kitchen and good choice of tv channels... more and reliable internet. Lots of personal touches in the condo and comfortable bed. As we were there during a very hot and humid stretch in August we found the window A/C unit could not quite keep up but the stand up fan provided circulated air quite effectively. We did not discover the restaurant in the hotel (cinnamon's?) until the end of our stay which is unfortunate as we would have had more meals and drinks there. Also the spa in the hotel offers a 30% discount to guests and I had a wonderful massage there. less
— Michelle, Stayed 08/31/2015
An Excellent Place
The room is perfect for us because we have older people and a little kid, and it has a divider to seperate the place. The condo's location is excellent. It is close to beach. Most importanly, it has a nice view out the balcony and... more it is quiet. less
— qq293, Stayed 08/26/2015
Satisfied and Desirable
It was enjoyable for us to stay at your Ilikai Condo, room number 1304. The scenery from the room was beautiful, especially at sunset. We usually stayed at western part of Oahu, such as Ko’Olina, Makaha or Turtle Bay for three weeks or so when... more we were in Oahu. We parked our car at Ilikai Marina. The fee, $20.00/day was expensive. Various tools you provided for us on the lanai were very helpful, when we went swimming to Kailua beach. But the chairs in your room were not properly paired. We did not feel at ease, when four of us had a meal all together around the counter. And dish washing machine is desirable. less
— AI, Stayed 07/28/2015
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Ilikai Condo 1304. Certainly as you know it is very convenient to the excitement and activities Waikiki has to offer, but at the same time it is quiet. The beach chairs, toys for children, snorkeling equipment is all there for visitors to use, as you found. We do not recommend having a car in the area for two reasons..the first being that it is always expensive to park in a city so close to its great attractions and secondly car rentals, three of them, are right across the street in the Discovery Bay building: National, Avis, and Enterprise..as well as Advantage in the Ilikai lobby. While we stay at the Ilikai we rent a car when we want it..otherwise several buses run literally just to the front of the building. The bathroom was completely renovated in May of this year. We always eat on the lanai where there are four chairs..it is so gorgeous and pleasant…the bar area only comfortable seats three.. as you see in the pictures of the condo. Sorry you missed your dishwasher..something to look forward to when you return home. Reading the description of the condo and looking at the comprehensive photos of 1304 would have shown you that there is no dishwasher. Susanne M. Lenz
We loved the room
Nice place we loved the room.
— Mathew, Stayed 07/10/2015
Thanks so much for your comment. The large studio , which can sleep 4 but more comfortably is best for 2, combines the classic Ilikai which was the first condo/hotel on Waikiki with a real vision behind it that gives you the feel of Hawaii, with a contemporary look and comfort. The bathroom has been completely updated but you know you are inthe islands when you are in this unit. The condo has plenty of storage space and offers supplies for the beach: chairs, towels, small umbrella, float board, snorkeling items. Susanne M. Lenz
View spectacular, condo was tired
Beach access was further than expected Great area for walking & shopping Best was the view Least was the bathroom
— Brian G, Stayed 12/19/2014
Brian...come again: there is now a totally 'new' bathroom, totally! You'll love it and you will 'know' you are in Hawaii when you use it. All the furniture is less than 2 years old...and new paint...so it looks 'fresh' and at the same time has an Hawaiian feel.
very nice stay
very nice stay. condo well represented by photos. older building but quiet and clean. AC worked well and nice view of marina. walking distance to beach and restaurants and shops nearby. condo is not huge, a bit small for large family, but still much bigger... more than standard hotel room. just if you are expecting a huge condo, it is not. I attended a convention at the Hawaii convention center and it was a 10-15 min walk. very convenient experience were you do not need to check in to hotel, just walk up to your room and use the key pad and walk in. not any complaints at all. maybe lighting in bathroom is a bit dim and also the free wifi worked, but was really slow-- but that was about it. very pleasant stay and good value. less
— smileyguy647, Stayed 09/20/2014
View & location are awesome!
We located this unit on the aloha Condo web site. The booking & check-in/check-out process was one of the smoothest that we have ever had. The unit was exactly as was depicted with the pictures & details. The view was awesome. We love watching boats... more & planes, so spent many hours on the lanai or opened the curtains wide and had the same view from nearly anywhere in the unit. Yes you could hear the planes/boats but to us that just added to the charm. Hotel has everything you need. Short walk to bars/restaurants/shopping/etc & all of our tours picked up in front of the hotel. The smoked detector started beeping on the first day, so a quick email & prompt reply had someone replacing the battery that same day. As stated in one of the reviews, the bathroom is a little dark. I just put my make-up on in the kitchen or on the lanai. This issue could be easily fixed with a quick change of the bathroom light fixture. We would definitely book this unit again. less
— Gord & Sheila, Stayed 01/31/2014
Excellent location and view, however up-dating needed to justify
Excellent service from Condo Management.Pictures do not protray up-dating needed. Condo was satisfactory for the months stay however the bed requires replacing and furniture rearranged away from air-conditioning unit. The owners provided beach supplies as well as information on shopping, transportation and restaurants that was... more appreciated. The condo has every thing needed for an enjoyable stay. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 01/14/2014
The bed is 3 years old..but your opinion is important to us and we shall replace it soon. Thanks for your opinion. Susanne M. Lenz, Owner, Ilikai Hotel, Condo 1304
What a beautiful Condo and fantastic location
We had a wonderful 9 days staying in Condo 1304. Great views and sunsets each night, positioned close enough to the Waikiki madness and yet far enough away to relax. The unit was very clean, comfortable and had everything we wanted in a room. We... more definitely will return in the future. less

We had a very nice time and enjoyed the room- mostly the beautiful sunsets. The only thing I personally disliked was the lack of lighting in the bathroom. It was hard to see to put on makeup, etc. Please improve the lighting or put a... more mirror, or mirror wardrobe doors. There was a small area above the closet that looked damaged and some damaged floor tile. I was a bit worried someone would think I did that so I took photos of the damage, just in case. Of course the whole unit could use remodeling or updating, but it was certainly livable. Really wish there was a workout room available, nearby. less

cozy stay at the Ilikai
We were in town for a soccer tournament for 10 days with my family of four. There are two adults, a very tall teen and a tween. The condo was just the right size for what we needed. It had everything we needed as well.... more The kitchen was stocked so we could cook, there were containers and wrap for the food (which is nice and saved us a huge expense). The only thing that I have to comment on is the bed is listed as a King and it is clearly not. We have a King size bed at home because my hubby is 6'5" and he hung off of the bed in this condo. The bed was comfy though and we still had great night sleep. The condo is at the end of the Waikiki beaches which was nice because it wasn't right in the heart of things...but yet walking distance to everything. less

Mahalo for your review and thank you for pointing out the incorrect information on the website regarding the size of the bed. Indeed it is a queen size bed and the information is now correct on the website. I am so happy that you enjoyed everything else and had a great time at my condo. Aloha, Susanne, Owner
Small but very comfortable for a couple. Very beautiful ocean view. At one time our parents lived on the 19th floor with an ocean view and we always remember how spectacular the view was - we had the opportunity to revisit those memories by staying... more in condo 1304. less

Good to hear a 'bit of history' with the Ilikai,thanks so much. Did you visit the Halakulani's "House with out a Key?" Susanne M. Lenz, Owner, Ilikai Hotel, Condo 1304
Clean and relaxing with good ocean view.
Condo was clean, nice with all the amenities. Ocean side view was spectacular. Location was good, easy walk to a nice beach, great restaurants and shopping. Easy access to public transportation (Trolley) Over all experience was very good. Only negative was when booked, was told... more condo had a king bed, but in reality was only a queen. less

Once again an aloha Condo vacation
This was out fourth vacation at the Ilikai Hotel and the third through aloha Condos. This was our first time in Unit 1304. The kitchen is well supplied. The bedding is very comfortable. The view over the harbour provides wonderful sunsets. However, we did find... more that we prefer the lagoon view. The unit was very clean and ready on time. less
— Happy Camper, Stayed 02/02/2013
We had a wonderful stay in 1304
This unit was very clean. It has everything that you need,I took a hair dryer but no need, the unit as one. You can't beat the ocean view, we spent hours on the deck. The location was great, right on the beach, bus right outside... more the door. Grocery stores within walking distance. I guess the only negative thing I would say is that the unit probably needs a new couch. We will certainly stay there again less

Made our Stay
This condo just felt right from the minute we walked in for our six night stay. Fabulous views with so much to watch going on, it was hard to tear ourselves away from the amazing sunsets. Location suited us as we found the beach at... more this end of Waikiki much less crowded. The condo was clean with great storage and kitchen equipment. But it was the little touches that made it home from home - books, CDs, beach gear. We would definitely book this condo again if we come back to lovely Hawaii! less

They're not kidding when they say Hawaii is a "Paradise".
From beginning to end, every need was met. We were glad we had a harbor view. That is why we picked Unit 1304. Everything we needed was in the condo. The only "problem", for lack of a better word, was that at first we thought... more the only place to purchase food was an aBC store, where milk is $10 a gallon; however, we found Food Land after a couple of days, which was much more affordable. We didn't eat at the condo that much, but we preferred to spend our $$$ on activities instead of food from a "minit market". The staff was very attentive. We had a five-hour gap from check out until our plane left, and the bellmen were more than glad to store our luggage for a nominal fee so that we could make one last spin to the shops and to eat before we headed to the airport. He even scheduled ourshuttle to the airport. Bring lots of "tip" money. The Ilikai is perfectly located if you like to walk, which we did. We could be in the hub of things in five minutes. Our unit was clean and nicely decorated. It was very quiet, too, but the best part is the million dollar view. It's not the fanciest hotel/condo, but all services that are offered at the high end hotels were offered to us at the Ilikai. less

Too much fun
My husband and I brought our 13 year old son and his best friend. Ths unit served all our needs. The sliding shoji screen provided just enough privacy between us and them... The location was awesome... For going to the beach and to ala Mona... more center. The kids had tons of independence and had the time of their life... The view was awesome... A memorable trip for us all... less

Glad to hear of your happy experience in 1304 Ilikai, Waikiki. Aloha. Susanne, owner 1304.
A very relaxing site and comfortable condo
This condo is close to everything, but also quiet with a drop-dead view of the water and sunsets.
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 05/31/2012
Our stay was very pleasant. We had a good view of the ocean and within walking distance to the beach. Having a kitchen is definitely a plus since our daughter tend to get hungry late at night. Parking is expensive! $25.00 per night at the... more hotel. less
— Stephen K, Stayed 04/15/2012
I stayed at this condo in November and was in town for business and a medical treatment, but also wanted to have some nice time out. I got it all. The condo is very well laid out and decorated. The kitchen does not miss a... more thing and it was very easy to get groceries and take out the trash etc.I was surprised to see someone had taken care of little things which are not important but make a big difference, such as serving trays, corkscrew, plastic containers etc.The TV was very easy to use ( I am a bit technically challenged and do not like complicated remotes etc). The condo has very nice furniture, the internet worked all the time, it was quiet and of course has an awesome view. I really liked the booking process as well. Everything went without a hitch, my e mails were answered immediately and check in was non existent, just go up and open the door!I am planning a return trip for next year. less

everything we hoped it would be!
we stayed at the Ilikai in 1994 for 2 months and wanted to go back because it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is still fantastic, wonderful view of the harbor and the ocean, great sunsets from the lanai. Perfect location for condo, and a... more very quiet floor, unit is pretty sound proof, can not hear other tenants through the walls or ceiling. Supplies are plentiful in the unit, coffee filters, laundry detergent, linens, beach towels, beach chairs and a great little kitchen with whatever cooking utensils and appliances you may need. No need to bring your hairdryer, their's is just fine. Also a bill changer by front desk for washer and dryer located a few units from 1304. See the concierge early in your stay,to book activities so you will not be disappointed. Have breakfast at the Wailana coffee shop, pancakes are terrific with coconut syrup-did Ihop once and back to Wailana. Also Shorebird in the Outrigger is great for breakfast as they look right over the beach and have a great breakfast buffet, check for the coupons in "This week Oahu".This unit is best enjoyed with 1 couple, it would be quite crowded with more than 2 people. There is a sofa bed, but very close quarters concerning privacy issues if more than 2 people. On the lanai there are aluminum sliding sun shades, use them in the afternoon to shade the lanai, works great in the cooling of the lanai. The hotel bar and grill is good to. Short walk to the mall, easy walk to Waikiki hotels and shopping. Hilton Lagoon area has a great beach with a great view of Diamond Head. Find a tour to the north Shore, much to see there and check out the Byodo-in Temple, it is a scale replica of a 900 y/o temple in Japan. If snorkeling, try Ocean Joy Cruises, great catamaran and if you don't see dolphins (guaranteed) you can go for another cruise-book early in your stay, so you will have opportunity to go again,(free) sometimes the dolphins are sleeping! View Hilton fireworks on Friday evening from Ilikai courtyard. less

Instantly felt like home...
I don't think I can say it any better than that... From the minute we walked into the the condo I felt very comfortable with it's layout. The view was perfect from morning to night. I would definitely return again

awesome and a memory gift of a lifetime
We recently stayed at the Ilikai Condo Unit 1304 What a great choice. The view from the Lanai was spectacular. We saw it all...surfers, joggers, boats...sunsets and the ceremonial conch blowing for the torch lighting every evening. The condo was clean and spacious and it's... more obvious that the owners take great pride in the care, decor, supplies and up-keep of their condo. The transportation available right outside was great with trolley, bus and cab service always available. The hotel was great...the pool, the store,the grill restaurant...loved this unit and will stay here again. Diamond Head background photo opportunity around the corner on the beach and home of Hawaii 5-0 opening film shot --Loved it all and was blessed to have our young adult kids come and enjoy this memory of a lifetime before going back to college and starting a new job. Thank you Kat for your assistance in lining this all up for us. Mahalo and looking forward to another stay in unit 1304 next year. less

thank you for sending this great review of our condo rental in Waikiki.. very impressive indeed. Suzanne, owner condo 1304
Slam dunk deal :)
Condo # 1304 is awesome. Check in was a breeze. It was nice not worrying about "who has the condo key ". The location, value & ammentities are an a+. The owners have thought of everthing ~ We enjoyed coffee on the lanai that overlooks... more the marina & ocean. Food extras were right across the street ( ABC store & McDonald's ). Great sandwich & wrap bistro also close. It was ideal ~ thank you for making our 10th anniversary very special !! less

very relaxing and awe inspiring view!
This condo inspires a vision of Paradise..truly. We have been coming to the islands for years: this condo has it all. Peace, view, comfort, convenience to restaurants, shopping, beach, pool, excitement and quiet: all in one spot. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

Nice room at a nice location
Condo 1304 was nicely furnished but lacked a small table inside for eating. The condo could use a bathroom vent and one over the stove. Room was light and airy and had a great view of the harbor. We would stay here again.
— Blairh, Stayed 05/16/2011
The unit was absolutly wonderful. Well supplied with cooking equipment although we did not cook. But plenty of wine glasses and plates and such. The bedding was like a cloud, I usually wake up tired from an unrestfull night but not here.Bath was not cramped... more and very clean nice size shower. The bedroom divider did not make noise when closing so my wife could continue to sleep while I got up to make a cup of coffee,no sqeaky doors or drawers. Ac worked great. We will try to book here again knowing what we are getting, wish we could book two years in advance, that's our frequency.Only wish we could have checked in sooner 3:00pm seems like a loss when we could be enjoying the room should be closer to 1:00pm,:-( less

Everything we hoped it would be and more
The unit was reallywell furnished;the chairs sofa and bed very comfortable and must be quite new. As well, there were some touches such as a beautiful writing desk, and book case, which added a lovely intimate feeling with the owners. Of course the view is... more outstanding of the marina,Ala Moana Park and beach, and we enjoyed the sunsets every evening. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave/convection oven, toaster, coffee-maker and stove top, plus all the dishes, utensils, and pots you would ever need to put out a meal. The bathroom is in great shape, and we enjoyed the shower,being very spacious. The owners have not stinted on making this a very comfortable unit. We were able to keep in touch thanks to the internet service. We would definitely want to stay at 1304 again. less

Great waikiki experience
Thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at the Ilikai condo! My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and thought it suited our needs perfectly. It had a nice condo-like feel with a good view on the 13th floor of the marina and beautiful sunsets,... more although no beach view really. It was clean and very well furnished with all the amenities we needed. The location was great for exploring Waikiki which we drove to a few times and also walked to a few times since it didn't take too long. Could walk to a good beach directly via hotel beach access, but we ended up using some of the other beaches anyway. Minor issue I had was parking which is not included, I would recommend parking at the marina which was something like $15 every 24 hrs. I would say if you want an affordable stay near the main strip of Waikiki, then I recommend this place! less
