- The Ilikai is located on the north end of Waikiki Beach, directly in front of the Ala Wai small boat harbor. You can see Waikiki Beach and the Hilton beach and lagoon from your lanai. Walk down the Ilikai ramp and you are at the ocean! Take a morning jog or a sunset stroll on the beach walk. Ala Moana Park, a local favorite, is less than a 10-minute walk away. Parking is available at the Ilikai. However, we recommend that you take a shuttle from the airport which will drop you off right in front of the Ilikai. Everything is within walking distance: Beaches, restaurants, fast food eateries, shopping centers, grocery stores, ATM's, banks, and much more. The bus stop is at the corner and cabs are always in front of the hotel. Car rentals are available across the street when you are ready to take a drive around the island. Aloha!

Condo 624 is a great location at the Ilikai. Beautiful ocean view from the huge lanai and easy beach access!The room was clean, well maintained and updated with everything we needed for cooking and beach gear. We had one maintenance need, but Ryan was quick to take care of it without any interruption of our vacation.The Hilton Hawaiian Village is right next to the Ilikai and has quicker beach access as well as tons of shops, restaurants & a live music bar.I'd suggest using the Biki app to bike around Waikiki - they are everywhere and your feet will thank you!I would definitely rent this condo again!
DO NOT STAY IN THIS ROOM OR ESTABLISHMENT

I am appalled by the response I received from the owner of this unit. I had planned to be staying there with a group of friends in April, when, one week before the trip I was told by my eye doctor that my glaucoma had hit end stage in my right eye that if I did not have emergency surgery in a few days I would go blind. I understand that there are no refund policies for good reason, but when I reached out to request that I get a full refund due to the extenuating and emergency nature of my situation, and with a letter from my surgeon stating that I cannot travel for a month and need almost daily follow up appointments, I had hoped for a compassionate response. Instead the owner refused my refund and then went to stay in the unit, on my dime! When I discovered this, I called and asked that the owner get out of the room and allow my friends to use it since I had paid for it. needless to say, I will never stay here and I belong to a large group that travels frequently and none of us will stay at this unit or this establishment as the people that worked for Aloha Condos were rude in their communication regarding such a life changing situation I am facing. The airlines however, were incredible in their response to my request for a refund.
We are sorry about your emergency that came up before your trip to Oahu. The no refund polices at that point were disclosed and agreed to by you when placing the reservation. Because of the polices there are options out there to purchase travel insurance from a wide range of travel insurance companies to cover such things as these unfortunate last minutes issues that might arise. Although not required in the policies, the owner did offer to give you a discount of 30 percent on your next stay which would help you recoupe some of the cost if you were planning on rebooking later but you were not responsive to that offer. Upon cancelling upon your request, you a few days later told us to keep the reservation active and that your friends would be coming to use it. Therefore, we did reinstate the reservation for you.
We are a bit confused as to why you are saying that the owner was in the condo when your friends arrived for their stay. The owner departed the day before your reservation arrival date and the house keeper did clean the unit the day of your arrival date and confirmed that no one was in the condo. Therefore there was no one in the condo on your dime and it was reserved and open for your stay during the duration of the time you had booked.
We hope it goes well for you in your procedures and recovery.
INTRUSIVE MAIDS at 9 AM reminding my to check out!
Reviewed by Joan
Up side: The condo was very nice, as seen in the photos. The bed and linens were very nice. Pillows comfortable. TV and cable worked fine with instructions. Like the fact that I did not need a key, to enter the condo. The grounds and elevators worked well. Neighbors were nice and friendly. Easy access to the beach and lagoon.Down side: Two hours before check out at 9 AM, while take a nap to get rid of my migraine headache. I had to wake up so I could answer the door. It was the maids knocking, just to remind me to get ready to check out! Not only was this offensive, since I am an adult and very much aware that check out was at 11 AM. This interrupted and disturbed my paid time in the condo and a time which I very much needed to rest before a late, overnight flight. I had already been up and packed at 6 AM that morning. The creepy part was, that at exactly 11 AM as we opened the door to the condo and step into the hallway, I was startled by the maids that were standing right outside the door, who said to me as I step outside: "right on the dot"! Of course they said "Merry Christmas" to soften their intrusive behavior, but I was not impressed.Traveling both for pleasure and professionally as a flight attendant I have never, ever had this experience before, to be reminded / pressured to check out of a condo, apartment or hotel room. From North American, South American, Europe to Asian, never once!

Clean, comfortable stay at convenient location
Reviewed by Rachelle
The Ilikai is convenient; near Ala Moana for foodland store, shopping. Boardwalk to beach is convenient, too, and this is at far end of Waikiki, which is quieter. Parking (valet only) is about $27 with in/out privileges- not a bad price for the area. This unit looks right onto Hilton Hawaiian Village, and gets the music from the rooftop luau across the street there. Ocean view is from afar, as this is set back a bit, but still quite nice. Bed is comfortable, sofa bed passable, kitchen well equipped, 6th floor is lower floor so nice for those who prefer to not be op so high. Very clean, everything working well. Would recommend.

Great location & excellent view of the Hilton lagoon & Waikiki Beach! Room was clean & fresh, well maintained. Was disappointing that the top floor restaurant is closed & no access to the view. There was no tissues provided in room as stated , I suppose that was because they were $6.50 a box at the ABC store. You stated there was no late check out but we were able to store our luggage for $1 ea at the bellman desk, they were very accommodating! Overall a great experience & will recommend in the future!

We loved staying here, it was well priced and the unit was great. I have a thing about comfortable beds, and the bed was very comfortable. It was very clean and we would stay here in a second. I don't like being too high up, and this was nice. We used to stay at the Hilton Hawaiian, but the Resort Fees are huge, and this is right next door. The only thing is the pool wasn't open as they are doing maintenance, and you can't see the fireworks, but that isn't everything. Luck had it that we stayed in this condo as we had booked another one, but they got the dates wrong. Aloha Condos posted the ones available, and we picked this one. Aloha Condos were great and I would use them anytime and would recommend. I would always stay privately now, and I am so glad we picked the Ilikai. A couple asked us in the car park what it was like staying here as they wanted to move, and I told them to look at this Condo 624. We loved it

Bed was not very comfortable. Every thing seemed to done on the cheap. Only two rolls of toilet paper. Two tiny bars of soap.
We appreciate you taking the time to send a review.
We are sorry you felt the bed was not comfortable. However it is very hard to please every guest with the level of comfort in a bed. We do have people who love the beds in and given unit and others who don't. Bed comfort is very relative to each person and what they prefer or what they are used to.
This unit is very reasonably priced and most vacation rentals as opposed to hotels does have an initial supply of stock and replenish supply is up to the guest.

My family and I stayed here in July and found the accommodations to be very nice and the view to be spectacular. Everything was as it was advertised and very clean. The only recommendations I was would have for the owners is that that they have more bath towels available to use and that they replace the pillows. Also the sleep sofa is not that comfortable. It might make sense to replace the current sleep sofa mattress with a memory foam mattress. Overall we were very happy with our stay.
We appreciate your taking the time to post a review. We do try to advertise the unit as it is and thank you for mentioning the cleanliness and that overall you were happy with the unit.

The hotel itself, although older,Is nice. The Aromas Cafe, which is onsite, is a great little coffee shop. The room was nice, but I don't know if we will go the "condo" route again. The condo was well furnished with dishes, eating utensils, pans, etc. however, there were 3 of us for a 6 day stay, and there was only 6 bath towels and 2 rolls of toilet paper for our stay. I felt that with the payment of a $135 cleaning fee, we could have gotten clean towels and more toilet paper. A little extra bedding/pillows would be nice too. Other than that, the place is clean, well kept, and met my expectations.

My husband and I plus our teenager son stayed in this unit for a week in April. The unit was great overall, clean, updated and well furnished. The view is better in person that the photos. There were only 2 things that bothered us:- the sofa sleeper needs a new mattress, our teen slept 0k on it though- there is a lot of noise on the balcony from what I think is pool equipment for the new pool. The owners should request that the building cover the equipment with a sound damping enclosure
We would stay there again.Great value for the price.
Mahalo for your review from your stay at the Ilikai Hotel unit 624. We are happy to hear you found the unit clean and overall great. The views always do seem much better in person!
We are noting the mattress on the sofa sleeper and will have someone check into that. The new pool has been completed so I am thinking it was not construction equipment you are talking about when you were describing some noise. Possiblly you might have been referring to the pool pump equipment? We will mention this to the owner to mention to the homeowners association. We have not had other guests that have mentioned this to be an issue though since the pool is on the 2 floor and this unit is on the 6th floor.

Although we have been to Waikiki many times and are familiar with the neighbourhood, this was our first time staying in a VRBO and we were unsure what to expect. Any concerns were put to rest immediately once we arrived in room 624. We couldn't believe we found such a beautiful place to stay for our vacation.
The Ilikai Hotel is stunning and perfectly situated for our needs. It was a pleasure to have a short walk to the beach without the need to cross any roads. Although situated at the quieter end of Waikiki, there is no shortage of great restaurants and shopping within walking distance.
The room was updated, clean and attractively furnished - just like in the photos. We did not make use of the kitchen (it is my vacation after all :) ), but it appeared to be well stocked. The lani has a beautiful view and is comfortably furnished.
The only thing I could say that was less than perfect was that the bed was too firm for my preference; however, it would not stop me from happily choosing to stay in this lovely unit again in the future.
I look forward to another visit another year.

The condo was exactly as presented in photos, not a thing different. It was super clean and had everything that we needed (except snorkeling masks:). The access to the beach was a brief walk and the pool was refreshing when we didn't feel like going to the beach. The building was nicely located with access to stores, restaurants and public transit. Parking was expensive so we rented a Smart Car that had the option of $10.00/day parking - you had to not mind walking a few blocks every time you parked. The only complaint was how noisy it was when the hotel across the street had their nightly Luau - interesting the first time but became very tiring by day six. We would however go back to this condo despite the noise and just not use the balcony between 5 and 8 pm.

Reviewed by kmcmuffin
I plan to cover the highs and lows of the unit. The condo is in a great location. The issue is the maid/cleaning of the unit. The shower had black mold on the doors and floor when we arrived (not adequate ventilation is my assumption). The sheets on the bed smelled like B.O or that they had not been washed and fully dried when put on the bed. Note no extra sheets are available so if you need to change them during the week plan 2 hrs minimum to get them washed.
The kitchen was very well stocked and clean (best kitchen equipment I have ever seen in a rental). The bed was comfortable and had a great view of the ocean. The AC works very well and we had no issues with it. One final item. The drapes covering the sliding glass door is so old and worn that you can see pin holes all over the drapes aka dry rot has started. The patio is large and well appointed.
We did call Aloha Rentals about the cleaning issue and the maids arrived and spent 4 minutes (yes I timed them) spraying some cleaning solution on the bathroom (whispering how gross the shower was) and left in 4 minutes flat..... not an effective cleaning job. Plus left new sheets that smelled like they had dried their sweat with them. (note they just threw them on the bed and didn't realize they were the wrong size. (had to call to bring another set) The towels they replaced (also with a BO smell) actually were fresh!
Final administrative point; bring quarters, bathroom cleaners and laundry supplies (including fabric softener and bleach) to clean the unit on day one. I stay in over 100 plus hotel nights per year in all types of hotels and this is my worst cleaning experience. I don't blame the owner but the oversight of the cleaning service.
BTW you can not see any real fireworks from the balcony on Friday night. Just the noise.
Mahalo for your comments on Ilikai Hotel 624. Upon your arrival, we understand that you had some concerns about the linens in which the housekeepers did arrive in a timely manner which met your approval to replace those linens with new ones. We have not had previous issues regarding the smell of the linens. Although the housekeepers did offer to change the sheets on the bed, you replied that that was not necessary so they placed a new set of sheets on the bed for you at your request and it was a simple mistake that they were the wrong size. However the housekeepers did return promptly with a set to replace them. A tropical island does bring with it mold and moisture and we do our best to stay ahead of it and once again the housekeepers responded promptly and did spend the time needed to complete the job with two people working on it. Our housekeeping is a high priority for us, as is prompt customer service, and our staff is very dedicated to doing their very best.
We continue to work hard to keep the units clean and accommodating to all of our guests and do have many reviews of very happy guests regarding the cleanliness and the great satisfaction with their stay. We will mention to the owners that perhaps the drapes are in need of replacement soon. Regarding the fireworks and the viewing from the unit, one might look at other reviews and see the excitement of other guests that did enjoy the display. We are glad that you found all other features of the unit accommodating and the location to be perfect as well as the wonderful view.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Condo 624. We travelled to Hawaii with another couple to celebrate mine & my friend's 50th birthdays. Could not have chosen a better location, just to the west end of Waikiki - not too close to the action, but a short stroll when we wanted to be part of it. Conveniently located near the Ala Moana Shopping Centre and ABC Stores on both corners with easy access to plenty of restaurants and bars. The condo was clean and well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the furniture both inside and on the lanai were practical and of good quality. The views were great and, importantly for us, the air con worked a treat. The bathroom was clean but a little dated. Booking was a simple, easy process and there was no check in or check out required. All instructions for access were comprehensive and easy to follow. The managers were very friendly and answered all our enquiries when booking in a timely and helpful manner. Would not hesitate to recommend this condo to anyone and would certainly return if we go back to Hawaii.

The fold out bed is best for one teenager or 2 small children. It wasn't as comfortable as the main bed. Free Wifi always makes the teenagers happy!I thought we would use the kitchen and dishwasher but it was so cheap to eat out particularly at the Ala Moana Food Court (which was in walking distance), that we ended up not using either.

We enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai 624. The location was great with many things within walking distance (bus, grocery, resturaunts etc.) Unit was updated and comfortable. The kitchen included everything we needed to prepare our meals. The lanai was comfortable and the view of the ocean was nice. The Friday night fireworks, although visible might be better seen from closer to the beach. The only drawback was the lack of space to store clothing. Overall our stay was enjoyable and we would stay here again.
Very nice place and location

This is a great location, although people wishing to be closer to the Waikiki action may find it to be a bit of a walk. The condo was immaculate and very easy to self-cater, with a great view and nice finishes. A true one-bedroom would have been nice but these are rare in this area, so with respect to value for money in this spot I highly recommend it!
Great stay at Condo 624

Condo 624 was an excellent choice for us to use as a quick getaway from the rainy Pacific Northwest. It was super clean, quiet, and well equipped. There were even beach chairs and a cooler for us to use if we wanted. Plus, it is very conveniently located to restaurants, stores - and most importantly, the beach! I recommend it highly. I will certainly stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at this condo for 5 days for our honeymoon and we loved it. Well located and close to the beach. It would only take us 5 minutes to get to the beach. There is also a mall 2 blocks away if ever you want to go shopping and many restaurants within walking distance. The bus is easily accessible to get to waikiki beach or diamond head. I'd recommend this to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Condo 624. It was very clean and the facilities were great. Everything we needed was within walking distance and the bus/trolly stop was right out front. I would highly recommend staying here when in Waikiki.

We couldn't have wished for better accomodation. The unit was very clean and spacious and the Ilikai is well placed, close to the beach, shops and transport. The view from the lanau was great, especially for the Fiday night fireworks. The booking service was exceptional and easy. We will stay here again on our next visit.

Great modern condo, everything seemed to be updated and you could spend all your eating hours there. The hotel itself had a good supermarket with reasonable prices. There was also a pool but we didn't use it. (why when ther's a beach nearby). The hotel staff was very helpful and pleasant. The location was great with a variety of restarants and shops nearby. The beach was close & very clean. Various car hire firms just across the road in one building) and public transport very close.We liked everything, the condo (and the ease of booking) the hotel (and its facilities) and the location. We can think of nothing that we disliked except maybe the flight over, ( If we can avoid flying United we will do).
Fireworks & Rainbows! A great alternative to the traditional va

This was my first time to Hawaii and to Oahu! After a lot of debate whether to go with a hotel room or a private rental, this condo seemed to be the perfect mix of both! It was also one of the more updated interiors with great finishes. The condo has everything we needed for cooking, for the beach and for living comfortably! It was true to the pictures and even had updated shower doors and is very open concept. The best things about the condo were the keyless entry and the lanai! You can come and go whenever you want without fumbling for a key or card to get in. There were also many rainbows you can see off the lanai and enjoy the water features from the deck while enjoying coffee. The Ilikai has a great bar & grill which was very affordable especially during happy hour. It also had traditional Hawaiian live music and fireworks on Friday! I loved the proximity to the aBC stores (convenience), Ala Moana mall, and how it is within walking distance to the heart of Waikiki. It is also easy to hop on the highway and go to any part of the island. Kat with aloha Condos was great with the reservation and answering any questions I had before the trip and during. The condo at the Ilikai was great and we wish we could have stayed there for many days after! We even found ourselves missing the condo for the few days while staying friend's at their house. We miss it already and would go back!

Being our first time to Oahu and not knowing where to stay we were excited that we were probably as close to the beach as possible without having to stay in a hotel. Ilikai 624 had everything we needed including beach chairs, towels and even a small cooler to tote our lunch to the beach or lagoon. Beautiful views of the ocean. Condo was very clean and conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. Was just far enough away from the overly crowded streets of the Waikiki Hotel strip. Even saw close up the filming of Hawaii Five-0 beside the Lagoon. Our kids loved snorkeling and paddle boarding in the calm waters of the lagoon. The Condo Management Team were awesome to work with and answered all our questions and concerns in a timely manner and most professionally. The keyless entry was a breeze. I would come back.
Facility far exceeded our expectations!

Could not have been happier with our condo and the Ilikai experience. The room inside the condo was more than we had expected, the facilities at the Ilikai were comprehensive and catered to our every need/request. Staff of the Ilikai was engaging and very inform of the services at the hotel and surrounding area. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
I will be back!

I must say I had the most amazing time in Hawaii this trip. The condo was incredible, not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The room itself was clean, convenient to shopping, and was great for the days when we wanted to just eat in. We saved a lot of money thanks to the full kitchen. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai...great weather and view to start the morning off right! The check in was easy because there wasn't any! We did not have to wait in line or deal with the front desk. We went directly to the room unpacked our bags and went directly to the beach. They also have a little general store where you could get packets of condiments (ketchup, mustard, jelly, etc.) if you don't want to buy those things at the grocery store. I would recommend this condo to any and everyone looking for a great value, great location, and great view. The only thing I can slightly complain about was that parking was $25 a day. We had to pay upfront because we were not a hotel guest. I was not expecting that at well. Nonetheless, I got over it quickly when we got up to the room and realized I was on vacation in paradise!
The Perfect Vacation

The Ilikai Hotel and apartment is the place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our condo was super clean and comfortable.The view, especially from the lanai, was spectacular. We enjoyed the luau music from the Hilton Hotel next to us, and the quiet of the evening sitting on the lanai. The pool was one of our favorite spots. Waikiki is still the best place for a vacation, and the Ilikai Hotel and apartments the place to stay. Condo 624 felt like home. The vacation was too short.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai 624. The unit had everything we needed, including beach chairs and mats. The location is quiet, away from the noise of Waikiki. We liked having the Hilton lagoon next door, and had the option of using that or the beach or the Ilikai pool. Close proximity to the mall (8 minute walk), and at least 3 aBC stores within steps of the hotel. The keyless entry was also a plus. We would highly recommend unit 624 to others.
Great studio condo in a great location.

This is our third summer in Hawaii. Each time we have rented a condo at the Ilikai and have been very happy. This condo had a great ocean and lagoon view from the lanai. Kitchen had all the conveniences except we could not get the coffee maker to work and there was no manual available. Wifi connection worked great. Bed was comfortable but seemed smaller than a queen and the sheets did not fit the bed well; either two flat sheets or the other set was not the right size. Loved the convenience of keyless entry. There was no access to the cleaning supplies and we stayed there for 13 nights with no ability to clean the floors or bathroom, that was a bit frustrating for us. Overall, our stay was very comfortable and convenient to surrounding restaurants and attractions.
