This is the second time staying in this condo, third in Ilikai Hotel and Condo. We, also, have stayed in Hilton Hawaiian Village Rainbow Tower, just next door. We just love the location. This condo was just as perfect as last time, clean, updated, best ocean-front and fireworks view, and had everything we needed. My only very small complaint is the sliding door was very hard to slide and lock. Hopefully, the next time we stay here, that would be fixed. I would recommend staying here and I hope to come back.

This is a very nice and well taken care of condo. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our stay. The location is perfect, we could hang out at the beach just footsteps away, watch the luau on the rooftop of the Hilton, and walk to many restaurants and shops. I have stayed at the ilikai before and this is one of the best condos I have stayed in. Thank you for sharing your condo with us. Hope to be back soon.

We stayed 5 nights and were very happy with our choice of condos! Making the reservation was easy and the instructions to get in the condo were detailed.

The view from the balcony was amazing. the kitchen was adequately stocked and the unit was clean. We parked our car around the corner at the Marina for $ 23/night with in/out privileges; which we thought was a reasonable rate for the city.

There are many restaurants within walking distance and we appreciated being a bit away from the crowded area of Waikiki.

The condo met our expectations. If you're looking to not spend too much money on a room for a family of four in the bustling Waikiki area, this is the place to be. Of course Hilton across the street is newer and probably has better AC, but it is at least $150 more per night. It was well equipped and my 14 year old son thought the blow up bed was fine. The condo overall, needs an update, but then the price to stay there would go up too. The views of the beach were excellent as well as the views of the nightly luau show at the Hilton next door. Elevators were fast and valet service was pretty good.

Manager Response

Aloha Velma,

Thank you for posting a review in response to our request.  We are glad the condo met your expectations and you agree that it is a reasonably priced unit with amazing views.  You are right where you want to be and close to everything! You are correct in that an update would then take away the good pricing which allows more options for guests.  However this unit has had some upgrades from the original build in that along the way, the bathrooms and kitchen were improved nicely and flooring.  The owners have replaced the mattress just one year ago and the sofa is only 3 years old.  The AC was also repalced just one year ago. The owner has given the condo more of a traditional style and they love it!  It would be hard to find a place with those great views at the great rate!
Thank you again for your review as we do appreciate it much.  

We hope you can return soon!

Aloha. and congrats on finding Aloha Condo's and Ilikai #1512.

Read all the reviews. I can't think of anything specific to add. Everything you need to know is in these reviews. pictures and webpages. This place is fantastic, and so is the service / ease of booking from the owner, etc.

What more could you be looking for, particularly at this price point? Great room. Superior View. Fantastic Location. Fully stocked Kitchen. Air Conditioning.

We only got to spend our final two nights of a 3 week vacation in Mrs. Santo's unit. She graciously allowed us a 2 night stay, where the stated rules do require a minimum of 3. When we Island Hop we always fly in and out from HNL. On our next trip we will extend our stay in Waikiki, and try to get back into #1512.

We lucked out and got two fireworks shows, for both Friday and Saturday night. Saturday was a wedding or something. The photo's don't lie. You are that close tothe Lagoon. Full convenience store in the Hotel lobby meant Mai Tai's on the Lanai. We will be back.

My favorite review of this unit was posted way back in 2010, which summed it up nicely, so I will re-tweet.

"Telling everyone about condo unit 1512 is like telling everybody about your favorite fishing spot - something you'd rather keep a secret but it's too good not to spread the word!"

Our stay at the Ilikai exceeded our expectations and more! The view was absolutely amazing and the condo itself provided everything we needed! We stayed for a total of 6 night and loved the location! For the price you can't beat booking through Aloha condos and homes. At first I was skeptical because I've never heard of them prior, after doing my research and now experienced booking a place through them, I would definitely recommend booking now!

The condo was nicely furnished and in a great location overlooking the lagoon and ocean next to the harbor. The condo itself was very nice, but a little tight with four people, two adults and two teenagers. One teenager slept on the air mattress and the other took the pull-out couch. They were comfy, but there was only bedding for one, so we split the sheets between the two. The queen mattress was a little worn and a little tight for my husband and me. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and it was especially nice to be able to use all the beach toys in the storage box on the balcony. We grabbed chairs and the boogie board and off we went. Mahalo!

This condo is the perfect location with the most amazing view from it's balcony. I loved getting up every morning and having my breakfast out there just watching all the activity down below. The condo had everything we needed for our 2 week stay, including boogie boards, deck chairs, beach towels and more, it really was very well equipped. We arrived a little earlier than check-in time but the room was already available, and it was nice to find a few necessities, ie toilet paper, shampoo, soap, washing detergent had been left for us. The only negative I have is that the bed is not the most comfortable, due to the way the slats are set up on the base it makes the mattress sag in the middle, hence we were always rolling into the middle of the bed!Overall, I loved this condo, it is ideal for a couple or a family with a small child, and I would definitely recommend it to my friends, plus keep it in my records for my next visit.

Amazing Condo!

Everything about this unit was perfect! It was my husband, myself, our 16 year old daughter, and our 4 year old son staying. The unit was idea for all ages. I based our choice of lodging based off of personal reviews so here is my detailed review to help you make your decision!

The kitchen was fully stocked - not a single item we wished was there. We ate most all of our meals in the unit for 8 days with no problems (and there is a WalMart just over a mile away for inexpensive grocery shopping or a Foodland, which was reasonably priced).

The lanai was amazing! It is the full length of the unit, which most other condo complexes don't have. That was a big selling point for us to stay here. We all four ate outside for each meal with plenty of room to enjoy the breathtaking views. We actually never utilized the bar stools inside because the lanai was perfect since it had two smaller tables, four chairs, and a lounge chair. I even stored our stroller out there while not in use and it was never in the way because there is so much room out there.

Let's get to the best part of the lanai. The huge deck box out there is packed full of practical beach items. Not just your standard sand toys to occupy a younger child. In addition to those (which were conveniently in a beach bag to take to the beach easily), there were boogie boards, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, blow up pool toys, insulated coolers, sand mats, etc. We did not have to buy a single thing for outdoor entertainment since it was all there. HUGE PLUS for us! The view from the lanai is great. You can see the rooftop Hilton Hawaiian Village luau from the lanai - that saves a lot of money being able to watch it. There are also fireworks near the lagoon that can be watched from the lanai on the weekends. Great front row seats!

The sliding doors between the bedroom and living room were nice to have some privacy while sleeping yet be able to open it up for more space during the day. The bed was comfortable and the air mattress in the room isn't just a little flimsy thing, it is a queen mattress that is very thick and cozy. There are plenty of extra sheets and blankets to create an ideal sleeping space on the mattress.

There were many little touches throughout the unit that were very nice such as a stool under the bathroom sink for little ones to use or Aloha condos leaving behind a large beach bag to tote necessities to and from. There were plenty of towels to use and cleaning supplies were provided if you chose to tidy up throughout your stay.

The pool was nice and easy to get to. There is a little store in the lobby as needed and an ABC store across the street along with restaurants and other shops. The building is on the quieter end of Waikiki so you are walking distance into the busier part yet can retreat back to the quieter end very easily. The lagoon was great and is available for public use. Ideal for younger kids since there are no waves. But if you want the actual ocean, it is right there as well. There is also a boardwalk for easy access to stroll the beach or a nice morning run.

The unit location is ideal as well. It is right off the elevator and close to laundry. But there is no noise or noticeable foot traffic from either. You don't have a keycard for the room, just a code to lock the door. It was so nice not having to worry about taking a key card to the beach or the pool!

As others have mentioned, parking can get pricy, but no different than it would be in any other metropolitan city. Any hotel/condo in Waikiki area charges parking and is in the same price range as the Ilikai building. It is up to $28 a day for the valet but considering we used our car to go explore on a daily basis, the convenience of this was very nice. They are prompt and professional. Plus, they bring you your car with the AC on so you are never getting into a super hot car. The secure location of the valet parking lot was nice as well since we had 6 hours after check out until we needed to leave for the airport and I had no worries loading up the car and giving it back to valet while we wandered town until it was time to leave again. You can look for free or cheaper parking nearby but we didn't think it was worth it for the added time and effort, especially realizing how convenient it was to load and unload right in front and continue on our way.

I will certainly choose this exact unit again next time I am in Waikiki without even looking elsewhere. I do not have a single complaint. The owner was great to work with and is excellent with communication. I felt like I was in a home away from home. It was ideal!

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.

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.

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!!!

We reserved the Condo 1512 online and found the photos to be an accurate description. The view was fantastic and we got to watch the Luau show from the balcony on many nights. This is a very convenient location to the beach and shopping. The parking valet was expensive at $28 but we used the free and reduced rate parking at the marina most of the time. The condo was very clean and modern and good size for a couple, although an extra mattress was provided. All appliances worked well and the grocery store was not all that far away at ala Moana shopping ctre. The beach equipment box on the patio was great! Thanks for thinking of all those things! We hope to return soon! Mahalo!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful View

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
