Fabulous Location, Comfortable and Convenient
I have stayed in 1512 on eight separate visits for periods of either four weeks or six weeks over the last few years. The IliKai is a terrific complex located on the IliKai Marina in legendary Waikiki. It's right next door to the beach, a... more short walk to the Ala Moana shopping center and Ala Wai canal, the wonderful Magic Island is also a short walk away. This particular unit, 1512, is comfortable and very convenient unit located close to the elevators and laundry room. I love the sliding wall and large closet space. The condo is very quiet and the view from the lanai is spectacular. The recent renovations to the bathroom are wonderful. I am an avid walker and the location provides many opportunities for me to take different routes on any given day to get those steps in. I definitely plan to return soon and will strive to stay in 1512 at The IliKai. less

Excellent facilities, well appointed and bathroom has been beautifully upgraded. Highly recommended.

A beautiful condo, great location, gracious owner, what else can anyone look for?! I have already endorsed her name/condo to my co-workers and friends. When we had a problem with our stay, she immediately fixed it and did not allow us to worry. I hope... more I don't have to fight my friends and co-workers when we come back next year! Thank you Eleanor!!!!! less

Cheap, but not that clean. Two stars, at best.
I would not stay in this unit again and I am hesitant to use Aloha Condos again. As for all the five star reviews: NO. The unit looked fine in photos, but different in reality. The couch was orange, not beige as shown. Perhaps less... more positive reviews have been suppressed. The positives: low price, fantastic balcony view, renovated bathroom and conveniently located. The negatives: no lock on balcony door, dusty, junky front closet, dirty sitting room furniture, I found dust balls, bits of trash and and dirty orphan cushions under the bed, the kitchen needs refreshment (replace the crusty sink and tap) and the AC next to the bed was noisy. Suggestions to the owner: better manage quality of cleaning, replace all soft furnishings (throw out the dirty couch, chairs and cushions), clean out the junk and filing cabinets from the front closet, regularly dust under the bed, do an overall deep clean of the unit, update the online photos and recoup your investment by charging a bit more. I have used the company Aloha Condos before, and was satisfied, but was disappointed this time. less

Thanks for the feedback! As an FYI, all customer reviews, whether good or bad, are posted. We try as best as we can to be honest with guests and to provide the latest information on the condo. Most, if not all, of the previous customer reviews I received on my condo have been 4 or 5 stars so this caught me by surprise. Majority of these past reviews have commented on how clean my condo is! But, I have communicated to housekeeping your concern so they can focus on those areas mentioned. The closet, by the door, is used as storage by housekeeping. Not sure if you’ve noticed the lock on the inside closet? There is more than enough space in the bedroom closets for guests to use during their stay. I’ve asked housekeeping to organize the storage closet and add a note in case other guests accidentally open it. The entire condo was renovated when I purchased it about ten years ago. I did another major renovation on the bathroom in July. I plan to do another major renovation on the kitchen hopefully in another year. I also make it a point to replace the major furnishings every few years. The latest furnishing is more contemporary. I understand that we all have different tastes in furnishings. Pictures and video of the condo were retaken recently and will be posted to our website soon! Thanks for the reminder about the broken lock to the patio. The lock will be fixed by the next week. Hope you had a fun vacation! - Eleanor
Ilikai Hotel Review Vacay
Beautiful - Clean - Amazing view! I am born & raised in Hawaii, I returned home for a visit. I typically stay in hotels with room service so I was a little nervous. I was so pleased to walk into a beautiful room with a... more view. The condo unit RM 1512 is priced right. Your on the west end of Waikiki, Next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village. We are looking forward to our next visit in the same condo. Do your shopping at the ABC STORES, Save your receipts turn them into ABC at the end of your trip for a free gift. It would be great if Eleanor had Condo’s on other Islands. less
— Kathleen, Stayed 10/06/2019
Eleonor's condo is just lovely, I loved her decor and the fact that the condo is equipped with anything and everything that you need for a vacation get away. The view is just spectacular. I will consider coming back and staying here again. Its a... more five star stay condo in my book. less
— Patricia , Stayed 09/09/2019
Condo has fabulous views. Loved having a morning coffee on the lanai. Plenty of beach gear available. Loved the modern kitchen and newly updated bathroom. Everything very clean and inviting. We would definitely stay again.
— Ute, Stayed 08/22/2019
Condo 1512, second stay
We chose to stay in the exact same unit one year after our last stay. You can't beat it. We love it. We have gone to Oahu five of the last six years and our favorite place for the incredible view, value, location, and outstanding... more service is unit 1512 with Mrs. Santos through Aloha condos. Thank you again and see you next year!! The Gregg family less
— Mary, Stayed 07/07/2019
Another great stay
We stayed in Condo 1512 for the 2nd time and love the suite. The view from the lanai is wonderful and you have a great view for the Friday night fireworks. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and you can cook a gourmet meal... more if staying in. The bed is huge and super comfortable. There were only one issue this year as compared to last. This year the new wifi system was a bit spotty. Room 1512 kept bouncing out and picking up another room. The internet company did fix it and it was ok for awhile, but we would have to unplug the box each morning to reset. We will, however definitely come back for another visit. less
— Linda, Stayed 03/02/2019
Lovely condo with spectacular view, perfect for two.
Eleanor’s condo is tastefully decorated and well situated being near the elevators, laundry room, and bather’s elevator. There’s just a small amount of wear-and-tear, but it didn’t detract from our enjoyment. It’s quite well-equipped; there were just a few kitchen items I would have liked... more but we still made do just fine. (E.g., a small selection of baking pans would have been nice—there was just one roasting pan—and a few more cooking utensils would have been appreciated.) At first, I felt there wasn’t enough clothing-storage space (no chest of drawers), but there were just enough hangers and plenty of space in the closet, and a shelf, too, so all our clothing fit. The lanai lounger was a favourite spot to enjoy the view and fireworks. There is an excellent array of beach gear in the box on the lanai, as well as coolers in the hall closet to borrow; ice packs, too, in the freezer. Eleanor was quick to respond to correspondence, and a pleasure to work with. We would certainly rent from her again. less
— Juanita, Stayed 01/09/2019
Room with a view
We’ve stayed at this apartment several times and it never disappoints. Beautifully located, convenient to everything that Waikiki has to offer including beach, shops and lovely walks.
— jennifer a, Stayed 01/02/2019
Great place, great location!
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... more 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. less
— April, Stayed 10/31/2018
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.... more 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. less
— Brian, Stayed 09/29/2018
Ilikai Condo 1512
We have stayed at the Ilikai five times in the past five years. THIS WAS OUR FAVORITE RENTAL YET! We loved everything about it, especially the view! The price was hard to beat, trust me, we would know. We are already looking at the possibility... more of staying in the same unit next summer, but this time only staying in this unit, not airbnb's AND this unit. Thank you for the best stay ever! Mary Gregg less
— Jeff, Stayed 07/26/2018
Nice stay at Ilikai condo 1512
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... more 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. less
— Velma, Stayed 07/10/2018
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!
Short but perfect stay
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... more 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 to the 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!" less
— Robert and Carol, Stayed 05/25/2018
Great Condo and helpful owner
This condo had everything we needed for a perfect stay in Oahu. Great location, beautiful view, friendly staff, and well furnished. Eleanor is a joy to work with. Very responsive and helpful. We really enjoyed seeing the fireworks and luau from the balcony. The bed... more slept great as well. Thank you, Eleanor, for a wonderful time in your beautiful condo. less
— Margaret, Stayed 12/26/2017
Unpack and relax
We have stayed at Aloha Condos several times now and keep going back. The condos are well situated with everything at your fingertips. Restaurants, shops, local amenities – it’s all there. The condos themselves are lovely and perfect for a family getaway. If you want... more to eat in, the kitchen is well equipped. We would definitely recommend Aloha Condos to anyone looking at a holiday in Oahu. less
— jennifer a, Stayed 12/22/2017
Excellent place to stay.
Brilliant location close to the Hilton fireworks, Hilton lagoon, Ala Moana Beach Park and shopping centre. Apartment is clean, comfortable and has kitchen facilities. A great spot for a Waikiki holiday. The building is quite and does not get street noise
— Cormac, Stayed 12/04/2017
This is the second time we have stayed in this condo and it never disappoints. Clean and well layed out it was a comfortable stay for 3 of us. Close to the beach, Waikiki and alamoana shops the location was fantastic. Nice restaurant downstairs with... more shops as well for convenience. Bus stop directly at the front door making it easy to get around. 5 stars wee deserved from us. less
— Neale, Stayed 10/06/2017
Another satisfied stay.
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... more 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. less
— Cindy, Stayed 09/02/2017
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... more 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! Parasailing, scuba diving, beach, food, bars, gift shops, car rental and so much more just steps away! Mahalo for the stay ❤️ less
— Jaycee, Stayed 07/15/2017
Perfect condo, super comfy king size bed, my 13 yr old son was very comfortable on the pull out. The condo had everything we needed. Amazing views.. perfect location..great communication with owner. Easy check in. Highly recommend.
— Krystel, Stayed 06/24/2017
I love where the Ilikai is located and the condo at 1512 is perfect. The view was spectacular, we even watched the luau every evening on the rooftop of the Hilton. I enjoyed the kitchen and moving wall for privacy. It was clean and comfortable.... more There were several beach items in a box outside which I added a nice heavy duty chair too. I will be staying here again on my next visit. less
— Tracy, Stayed 05/31/2017
Fantastic location great vacation:)!
Thank you for an amazing vacation. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Ilikai. We had an amazing view of the ocean and we loved having a kitchen. We cooked most of our meals and ate them outside. We were close to everything... more easy walking distance for groceries. We can not wait to plan our next vacation. A tip would be if you go at busy times like we did take the bather's elevator to save time because with 25 floors the main can take a while.A+++ for service from the owners and staff :) less
— Alana , Stayed 01/14/2017
Perfect location! Amazing view! I would definitely stay here again. Perfect view from the balcony of the Friday fireworks. This place had everything we needed for fun in the sun, beach towels, chairs, snorkel gears, boards, etc. We'll be back!!!
— Cindy, Stayed 09/08/2016
Ilikai Condo 1512
The condo exceeded our expectations. The condo was clean, comfortable, centrally located and had awesome views. Instructions were well outlined and simple to follow. We would definitely stay there again should our travels take us back to Oahu.
— James, Stayed 08/16/2016
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... more 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! less
— Debbie, Stayed 08/01/2016
Perfect family accommodation
This condo provided our family of 4 with everything we needed for the perfect holiday in Hawaii. When we arrived, it was clean, airy and welcoming. Well equipped kitchen for those times when you want to eat in. We will be booking this condo again.
— jennifer a, Stayed 07/22/2016
For the week of June 21st our 30th anniversary, we recently stayed 5 nights in unit 1512. The view is awesome. The location is perfect for paddle boarding in the lagoon and swimming in crystal blue ocean. The beach supplies on the lanai were perfect... more as we could pack a soft pack cooler and beach towels and chill at the best beaches in Waikiki . Thanks for a memorable stay!!!! less
— Jennifer, Stayed 07/06/2016
The condo was amazing, great view, awesome location, very comfortable with everything needed to enjoy a day at the beach! Found great happy hours super close, shuttle pick up right out front of the hotel. We will definitely stay again!! Couldn't of asked for a... more better condo to celebrate our 20th. Thank you Eleanor for making our stay wonderful!! less
— rhonda, Stayed 05/27/2016
The view says it all!
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... more 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. less
— Paula, Stayed 05/20/2016
We stayed in the Ilikai for five days with our children. The condo was rented through alohacondos.com. We were very pleased of our condo. There were plenty of storage and space to accommodate all of us. The view was beautiful! We did enjoy watching blue... more ocean water and the lagoon. The condo is clean and really well equipped with everything you would need in the kitchen, has all accessories for the beach. The lagoon and the beach are a five minutes walking distance. We plan to stay there again. less
— Alla, Stayed 04/04/2016
Quiet, comfortable condo with an awesome view! Everything we needed was there. Elevators are speedy. Short walk to the beach. Being able to watch the Luau on the hotel roof next door and having a front row seat for the Friday night fireworks was also... more a nice perk. less
— Terri, Stayed 02/10/2016
We had a wonderful week staying in 1512. The location is perfect to keep quite if you want or walk down the beach to the action. The unit is well appointed with everything you need even beach accessories. The view from the Lanai is fabulous,... more we spotted a whale one morning. We have stayed at Ilikai before on the other side and this unit by far is better. Communicating with Eleanor is easy and she responds quickly. A wonderful experience, thank you Eleanor!! less
— Lorianne , Stayed 01/15/2016
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... more 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! less
— Sandra N, Stayed 04/09/2015
Location of the Ilikai and the actual condo location, close to elevator and laundry facilities, all
The quiet surroundings, the view from the lanai are what I look forward to that is why I have rented this condo for the past 5 years. The location close to all the services and shopping areas I enjoy and use on a regular basis... more certainly work well for me. Highly recommend the site. less
— Fay M, Stayed 03/05/2015
Aloha, We want to thank you for taking the time to post your review. We also want to say a big “mahalo” for coming back now for 5 years! The location of this complex is perfect! It is convenient to everything you would need such as restaurants, shopping and beaches. The Marina and ocean views are exceptional and do bring a sense of calm to any day! We look forward to continuing to serve you in the future. We appreciate your business! Aloha and Mahalo
Great Location & Superb View
Really enjoyed out stay. The facilities were good. Comfortable bed. The only thing I would have liked was a nice bottle of cold water in the fridge on arrival, would have been much appreciated after a long light. The shop downstairs was closed at that... more time. We would book this accommodation again without hesitation. Thank you. :-) less
— Monique Y, Stayed 09/15/2014
Aloha, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the unit to be something you would be happing in returning. We do not provide water but there ABC store pretty much on every corner and are open late and sometimes all night. The location of this unit does provide the convenience to everything and is right downtown. We hope you will allow us to accommodate you again in your next stay in paradise. Mahalo for your business!
Beautiful view and great location. Downtown easily accessible walking or bus. Cannot beat the value in having a beachfront location and a full kitchen. Help easily accessible for any questions or concerns.
— BrevFamily, Stayed 09/01/2014
Hotel was good...rooms vary
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... more 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. I would stay at the Ilikai Hotel again, but would likely choose another suite. less
— Meenu B, Stayed 08/12/2014
Great place to stay!
Really enjoyed this place. The view is stunning. Great convenient location. Well-appointed unit. Very comfy bed. Unit manager was very helpful and informative. Would definitely pick this one again!
— ST, Stayed 03/28/2014
I have stayed in this rental for the past two years and it certa
The location for me is great, across from laundry, around the corner from the elevator. The entire complex is well located for me, I love the area, close to the shopping mall, a lovely walk along the beach and the view is wonderful. I know... more the area well as this is my 8th year staying at the Ilikai and will always try to stay there. The available services there are wonderful, the staff there is great, friendly, courteous and very helpful. The cleaning staff for the condo were so helpful and friendly. less

Little piece of heaven in Waikiki
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... more 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. less
— CC, Stayed 02/06/2014
We didn't want to leave. The views perfect. The condo was clean quite & presentable. Everything we needed was in the condo right down to bottle opener just great. The location couldn't get any better so convenient. We would definitely stay here again & would... more recommend it to all our friends...thank you less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 01/02/2014
The ilikai hotel is beautiful. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. Condo 1512 was just perfect for our family. It was all that we expected-great location and all the amenities of a hotel. The view is stunning, with a free viewing of the luau... more show held at the Hilton. We will definitely return to this condo/hotel if ever in hi and I have already recommended it to friends. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 07/22/2013
Nice unit, easy accessibility
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... more 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. less

Great Condo, Great Vacation
We've stayed in the Ilikai a number of times so we knew what to expect and were very pleased with 1512. Eleanor was a pleasure to work with. The condo was just a pictured. Plenty of room. The Lanai was confortable and included a tub... more 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!!! less

Best deal in town
The Ilikai hotel and room 1512 are really hard to beat for a really nice vacation. The room is comfortable with all updated furnishings. And the view is just amazing. There are a couple of suggested improvement, but nothing that would stop us from renting... more there again. less

just the spot!
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... more 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! less

The view from this lanai holds a wonderful surprise on Fri eveni
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... more 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. less

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... more 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! less

The condo was beautiful, the view is even better in real life than in the pictures. The condo was more than fully equipped with everything you need in the condo and for the beach. They even had boogie boards, beach mats, beach towels, beach chairs,... more snorkle gear etc. Making reservations with Eleanor was a pleasure. She answered my emails and many questions in a very friendly and timely manner. less

Relaxing, restful, comfortable with a matchless view of the lago
On the fifteen floor, we most enjoyed the beautiful view from the lanai where we ate many meals, read and talked. The kitchen was well equipped; the bed very fine, and good seating. We appreciated all the equipment from beach mats and chairs, to bogie... more boards and some snorkeling equipment. Also some toys for youngsters were available. The location was ideal. We walked to the ala Moana shopping center or Waikiki with ease. City buses left close to the entrance and we used them for excursions such as to Pearl Harbor. We would highly recommend this condo. No complaints at all. less

Great view, clean, comfortable and good location.
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... more 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. less

Wonderful Stay in 1512
Completed our first stay in 1512 april 2012 and had a wonderful time. The unit had everything we needed and more - beach towels, boogy boards, beach chairs and toys were definitely a nice touch! The view and lccation were both fantastic especially for the... more Friday fireworks from the Hilton lagoon. Leaving the unit for outings was easy and a nice touch was the combination door entry system so fumbling and searching for keys was eliminated. All amenities are close by within walking distance; restaurants, grocery store, beach, car rental and bus stops. Was a easy decision to add this to our annual accommodation in Waikiki!

Loved our stay at The Ilikai #1512
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... more 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. less

We had a great experience with 1512. Everything was just as listed/expected. A great part of Honolulu to say, everything is easy to get to. A bit noisy on the balcony (Ilikai Hvac unit & the Hilton's waterfalls), but the view makes the balcony great.... more The process to renting was smooth and easy. The favorite part was the easy walk to the beach! less

Perfect location, view, amenities and service.
Even though we stayed in a privately owned condo, the staff at the Ilikai, including the Elite valet staff could not have been more helpful and courteous. The accommodations were perfect for the two of us and the view was perfect. It was within walking... more distance to ala Moana Shopping Center to the North and the zoo and parks to the South, with every imaginable shop & restaurant in between. I have stayed at quite a few places in Honolulu and the Ilikai was one of the nicer ones. less

What an amazing Texas size value in paradise!
My family of four (two teenage boys) recently stayed in condo 1512 owned by Ms. Eleanor Santos and had a great stay while there. I had never rented a condo we had always stayed in hotel rooms, but my Texas size boys demand more space... more as they grow! From the time I booked the condo to the time I checked out all I can say is -What a great home away from home. We stayed at the condo for ten days and everything we needed was there from condiments in the kitchen to beach boogie board in the lanai . 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. I can tell Ms. Santos takes pride in her property and I would like to send a big Texas thank you for sharing her property with travelers like us and giving us a true home away from home . God Bless and Hasta Pronto- C. Ruiz-Soria less

For a limited space we fit in quite well. Anything that you needed was there and more. All the toys for the beach, Blender for smoothies, and all the channels for the Sports(hockey play offs).

Old School Hawaii 5-0
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... more 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. less

Great Hawaiian vacation
The condo was great - clean, beautifully decorated, plenty of supplies. Comfy bed, wonderful view of the lagoon and beach. We got to sit on the balcony and watch the fireworks from the Hilton. And our 2 year old even slept through them with the... more door closed! Best view of fireworks I've ever had. Easy access to the store across the street for simple groceries - we did a lot of lunches and quick dinners in our room since we had a 2 and 6 year old with us. Breakfast buffet was perfect for filling our bellies before heading out for the pool/beach. Easy check in and check out and we had no problems with the condo while we were staying there. Overall, it was a great experience. Our only challenges came from traveling with a very spirited 2 year old boy. less

Great Location, Quiet & Stylish
The Ilikai is a great place to stay in Waikiki, very quiet. A few steps to the beach, restaurants & shopping, Ala Moana Shopping Centre is only 3 blocks away. Buses & trolleys are at your front door & there is a great concierge in... more the hotel for tour bookings. Unit 1512 had everything we wanted. The good thing was we had a choice of eating in or dining out. The laundry was very handy across the corridor. The fireworks on Friday night were special from the balcony as was the laui from the Hilton every other night. We booked an extra night after our original booking without any problems. Thanks for a very comfortable stay. I will have no hesitation in recommending this condo to all my friends & family. less

Ilikai 1512 - Very nice condo
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... more 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. less

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... more 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. less

Stayed for 10 days in unit and especially enjoyed the view of the Hilton Lagoon and the ocean. Arrangements to stay in this unit went smoothly and the unit was comfortable. Like the location which is close to the action of Waikiki but far enough... more removed to not be hectic. Unit is pretty nice though some of the furniture and walls are starting to show some wear and tear. Kitchen was well supplied and worked well for our needs. less

Better than expected
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!! The condo was better than we expected and better than advertised. The view was... more spectacular, the unit immaculate and handy to laundry facilities, garbage disposal and elevators. 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! Unfortunately we must recommend this condo (but please don't everybody book it up solid for the future - we want to go back!) !!! Thank you Eleanor...it was a dream holiday! less

The Condo is in a great location with spectacular views. Unfortunately there is a major noise problem. The Condo is situated next to a room where an exhaust unit, which runs 24/7 has been installed. This unit has been installed near the opposite side of... more the kitchen/living room wall of the Condo and you can feel the vibration of the motor through the wall. At night the noise is louder and it is very difficult to sleep. We have just had our fifth trip to Honolulu and we thought we had finally found our dream place to stay - a well-appointed Condo in a great location with spectacular views. You can imagine how disappointed we are that we will have to look elsewhere if we return. I hope this noise problem can be rectified so people can enjoy the Condo and more importantly recommend this Condo to their friends. less

Nice place to stay for easy access to Waikiki beach

This was a very nice condo ~ more worn (privacy screen was in need of repair, but we did not use it)than we expected but in very good shape overall. The view from the deck is splendid. There was plenty of bedding available, as well... more as beach towels. Having an internet connection was a very nice perk. 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. We were disappointed in the $120 cleaning fee, as other relatives were not charged or paid a lesser amount. Would check more closely on this cost next time. less

She especially loved watching the Hilton Luau from the... more lanai every night! It was such a nice perk! We felt very at home in your condo, and appreciate all the great amenities you had available. The boogie board was a big hit with our daughter! And the full kitchen was a big hit with me!

My family and I stayed here during a recent trip to Hawaii. We loved the location and the view from the lanai was beautiful. The room was within walking distance to the beach or the lagoon. It was also centrally located to anything that one... more may need. The room was fully stocked with everything needed for the stay; towels, beach towels, kitchen utensils, etc. There are also books and DVDs for down time. Our only complaint would be the parking. There is no "free" parking. There is free daily parking by the beach but its not overnight, hourly parking across the street (25 cents an hour)by the harbor or valet parking at the hotel for $25 a day. We opted for valet parking as the easiest and least stressful. Plus, with valet parking, you can pull right up and empty your trunk. The backside of the hotel offers only stairs. However, we would definetely stay again if we return to Hawaii. less

We rented the place on our last leg of our first trip to hawaii after staying in Maui. The first time we stepped into the door was heart stopping as the place exceeded our expectations.

Great apartment in between Waikiki and Ala Moana
I stayed at Ilikai for a 8 days. It has a nice, spacious lobby area that opens to the back of the hotel and a small bar. Nice picture taking. The apartment was big enough for 3 adults with a king size bed and sofa... more bed. The kitchen had all required appliances available. Bathroom was a good size with shower, not a bathtub. There is balcony that looks over the back of the hotel facing the ocean. There is partial ocean view as the balcony also faces the back of another hotel. Location is ok - it's about 20 mins walk from Waikiki beach (which is quite long - Ilikai is on one end of Waikiki). It is 10 mins walk to Ala Moana, the main shopping complex. Easy to get to the bus stops at Ala Moana. Coffee places, convenience store and restaurants are all near Ilikai. I enjoyed the apartment, it's very comfortable for long term stay. It made me feel at home. less

We were 3 females in an open floorplan bachalor suite - our opinion - more suitable for a couple or 2 persons only. Sofa bed uncomfortable to sleep on. This apartment is small but very clean. Nice furnishings, modern, bright - lovely view of the... more lagoon and Pacific Ocean from a balcony with a privacy shield. 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. less
