The condo was great. Loved the kitchen with the large counter space. The bathroom was nice and roomy. Really liked the shower. The couch and bed was comfortable. We enjoyed using the beach chairs, umbrella, and lunch boxes.The AC unit was a bit difficult to understand how it worked but the manual helped and eventually figured it out.We're not sure if the bedsheets were clean to begin with. We both got bedbug bites. We used the WiFi and when I connected with my laptop it scanned the router and showed there was an open unsecure Port being used. That would need to be closed in the router settings.Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the condo.

This condo met our needs perfectly for our 3 nights in Waikiki before going out to Ko Olina. The view of the lagoon and ocean was great. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks from the lanai. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the pillows. Pillows need to be replaced. Bedding is a bit worn and could use updating. Emi was very helpful with our reservation and answered all of our questions.

This condo was a great find for the price. We stayed for a week. We loved our view of the two hotel pools, Lagoon and the Beach. It was a quick walk to everything. The building amenities were great as well, a restaurant conveniently located in the lobby, laundry and trash dump located on each floor. The only down falls, there weren't enough paper towels, we had to by some more and as other reviews mentioned, there really is not enough light in the living room. A ceiling fan or light mounted would be a great addition to the room. In addition, having a regular sized broom and vacuum would be a big help too. Being at the beach ever day and which children and sand buckets, you are bound to track in sand, that was a bit of a pain to clean up without the proper cleaning supplies. If your looking for super fancy, this is not the place, the paint was chipping on the walls, the linens and carpets look very worn, but if that stuff doesn't concern you, then this is a GREAT FIND! I would definitely stay there again!
Thank you for your feedback for your stay at the Ilikai Hotel unit 828. The unit is reasonably priced and does have everything you might need as well as the hotel has conveniences within. Thank you for your comments for additions to the condo and we will certainly consider your thoughts. We are gald to hear you would stay again and we hope you do!
No surprises. As Expected

This condo was clean and just as pictures showed. Very nice touch to offer beach chairs and beach towels. There were even a few beach toys available. Views are amazing. I would recommend. Although, just a few minor updates would really make this place more up to date and better. For example, there should be more lights in the main room. It gets very dark and there are only two small bedside lamps. A more up to date coverlet would look better and be a very inexpensive update. Maybe think about doing away with the Murphy bed and getting a nice bed with headboard. The bed did sleep well though. For the price, you can't do better.
Thanks for the review and taking the time to post. Thank you for noting the unit was clean and accommodating and was as advertised. Thank you for the feedback on the updates and we will mention to the owner your comments.

This condo is not as pristine as the pictures indicate. New bedding and pillows would go a LONG way towards improvement! Our only real issue were the pool passes. We had a reservation for 3, only 2 pool passes were provided. We arrived at the condo Friday late afternoon and the office had already closed. So we went the whole weekend not going to the pool. Called first thing Monday morning only to be told well you don't really need them but if you insist on having them, you can go to the front desk and see if they'll give you another one. Huh???? Also, it says to empty trash cans everyday. Well how about leaving more than 3 trash bags?? We were told someone would bring more but no one ever showed up. Other than that, it was good. The view is beautiful and the condo overall was good.
Thank you for your time in writing the review for unit 828 at the Ilikai Hotel. We are glad that you found the unit overall good. The owner has seen the comments and will be arriving this coming weekend so she will look at the linens and access them.
The pool passes are as explained to you usually not necessary but could have been picked up on site if desired.
We certainly would have brought more trash bags by for you but no one got a message about this.
The pictures on our website are this unit and we try to have multiple pictures so that you can get a good idea.
We are not sure what office you might have called but our office is open all weekend and phones call are always available. The emails we sent you before arrival did have our contact information at the office and the on island contact to call at any time.

We loved the stay. The view from the room was beautiful. The room itself was very nice as well. Location was perfect. Steps to the beach. Trolleys every 10 minutes to whisk you away to wherever you want to go. Stayed at the Hilton next door for a night as well. Trust me, don't do that. The ilikai condo was far superior and less than 1/2 the cost of the Hilton. Did I mention the view of the beach and ocean from the lanai?

The layout was different from other condos we have stayed in. I would prefer the TV to be lower at eye level and the air conditioner to be away from directly blowing on us. Also, the hardware at the end of the bed and the hardware at the back of the sofa is unusual in our experience.We did enjoy the black-out drapes and the kitchen was fine. Also, the walk in shower was a real plus and so was the spacious lanai. Everything was very clean.

Reviewed by Kelly
Condo 828, partial view of lagoon and ocean. Easterly facing - exposed to morning-long sunlight with exposure to very warm temperatures. Patio door glass hot-to-touch from sunlight; could use sun control reflective film. Had to use A/C continuously when in the room with blinds drawn, during the mornings (effectively negating the view). Mitsubishi wall mount A/C unit's air flow vanes not working, causing air flow to be directed downwards to sofa and not throughout the room. One of the light bulbs (of only two) not working in the bathroom. Lamp bulb burnt-out in bed lamp and in desk lamp. Remote for Mitsubishi A/C needs new battery, barely readable display. Floors sticky with excess wax or floor polish. Bottom of shoes and slippers sticking to floors. King bed with mattress losing its comfort, causing restless sleep.
Thank you for the review for the unit 828 at the Ilikai Hotel. We are sorry you did not enjoy the sunshine but the other side of the building would be getting the afternoon sun. We are glad you found a solution by closing the blinds. The spacious lanai would allow for taking in the beautiful views and afternnoons when the sun was over to the West.
We have sent a serviceman over to take a look at the other issues you mentioned and those things have been taken care of. If you would have called us during your stay, we could have taken care of those things. We have brought the floors to the housekeepers attention.
Beds are a very individual taste and we can have very contrary comments about the comfort level of any given bed. Therefore it is something that is going to be hard to accommodate every guest with different needs.

We enjoyed our stay at condo 828. The location was great, just at the beginning of waikiki. So not in the super busy area, and not so far out. pretty much can walk anywhere within 10 minutes... we also had the view of the lagoon.The condo itself was clean, lots of towels, 2 beach towels, and they even provided us with a cooler and beach chairs that we took out everyday to the beach! It came in very handy.
I know the sheets were clean, because they smelled clean.But some of them were stained in certain spots (because they are white sheets)I would have liked for it to be cleaner.. Or even better, replace them with new ones!
For the price per night, it was totally worth it.Other places nearby were twice the amount we paid.

Hawaii is very special to us as we met and were married there in 1964. We have gone to Hawaii almost every year. Our friends introduced us to Ilikai Hotel Condos. Three years ago we stayed in a different unit. Last year we stayed in 828 and booked it again for this year. We were very pleased that the owners listened to our suggestion last year for improvement as we loved the new leather sofa. We have booked again for October 2017 in 828. We could have looked for a better rate but decided not to as we love the location. The huge refrigerator/freezer is a plus too. The kitchen is stocked pretty well and I know what to bring from home to fill in the gap. The closet is small but we make due. Looking forward to next year already. Mahalo

For the past few times that my wife and I have gone on vacation, we have decided on rentals instead of hotels because they're a lot more affordable and because they're equipped with a lot more things to make our vacations more enjoyable. We have been spoiled by great condos in the past so we were looking for anything comparable. With the Ilikai Hotel Condos, Condo 828, we weren't disappointed.
First, it was great to not have to deal with any lines to check-in as sometimes those lines take too long; the owner provides you with a code to go straight to the room and gain access to the condo. This meant that there was no need for a room key which is great because you don't need to worry about keeping track of it, especially if you're in a large party.
Compared to the price of the hotels we looked at, the price we paid for the condo was a bargain. It was very well equipped; A/C, wifi, full kitchen, plates/utensils/glassware/etc., lanai, two beach chairs, a beach umbrella, coolers and though we didn't use it, a surfboard is available for use as well. It doesn't have it's own washer/dryer, but there is a washer/dryer only a few steps away. In addition, everything about it was modern, so we appreciated staying in a room that was up-to-date. It's right next to the elevators but if you're worried about it being loud because of all the foot traffic that passes by, I can assure you don't need to worry about that because guests are respectful and are not loud. Did I mention that the lanai provides a great view?!
On top of that, the location couldn't be any better. It is right next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village so if you're there on a Friday night, you can enjoy the fireworks show. You can also enjoy the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon as it's literally across the street. Waikiki Beach and Ala Moana Mall are both in walkable distances too so as you can see, the location of the Ilikai provides guests many great options of things to do that are fairly close.
We did have a rental car so if you have a car as well, I would suggest parking in the garage across the street (entrance is next to a Red Lobster) as it was only $20/day. This is fairly cheap compared to the valet parking the Ilikai offers at $28/day (keep in mind that you would need to tip the valet drivers so it's more like $28+/day) and compared to other parking garages in the area, it's a steal.
Only suggestions for the owner is to consider a shower caddy and provide new ice trays.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Ilikai Hotel Condos, Condo 828. I would highly recommend this condo especially if you're like us and prefer to stay at a rental instead of a hotel.
Had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beautiful condo.

Weève stayed at the Ilikai from april 14th to april 20th, 2012. The location of this hotel-condo was absolutely perfect for us. Walking distance to the beach, nice restaurant, mega shopping centre where you can find anything and everything even a Foodland. Being on the 8th floor was giving a perfect view of the ocean. The lanai was well equipped for a quiet diner. The condo was even equipped with 2 beach chairs, beach mat-towels, cooler for picnic and for those with a baby a portable playpen. Absolutely nothing to say negatively about this condo. If ever we plan of going back, this would be our choice again. Thank you for making our Hawaiian holiday a dream come true. Mahalo!
Aesthetically pleasing tropical haven with a view.

The Condo was well equipped, the bed and futon comfortable, the decor extra beautiful, the view a dream. Our little haven above carved yellow beach and blue sea.
One slight moan. Cigarette smoke seemed to trail in from balcony outside now and again.
Great vacation in condo 828

Our family of four ( two adults, two teenagers) was very comfortable staying in room 828 for 16 days in Feb 2012. The ocean view room had a view of the Hilton lagoon and Friday night fireworks. The room was extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. All the appliances worked; we prepared many meals in the room. Grocery stores are availabe near by and the Ilikai store is reasonably priced for last minute supplies. Easy walk down the beach to Beach walk and Lewers street. Only a 10-15 minute walk straight down ala Moana to the mall.Bus and trolley stops are right outside the hotel. Wailani Coffee Shop a great local coffee shop a short walk down ala Moana Blvd. I would definitely stay here again.

We booked our stay at unit 828 through Kathaleen at Hawaiian Vacation Properties. She provided excellent communication and directions which added to our comfort before and during our 6 night stay. The unit has been updated and has all the amenities needed, with the exception of a washer/dryer. But who wants to do laundry on vacation? We found the unit to be very quiet. There is a view of the Hilton lagoon and Waikiki Beach. Easy walking to ala Moana Shopping Center and numerous restaurants to choose from. A Foodland market is also within walking distance and enabled us to cook a few meals during our stay. If one wants to rent a car there are 2 agencies right across the street. We really enjoyed that we could walk in, drop our bags and start to enjoy our vacation.

The condo was good value for the price and was fully equipped. You had a nice view from the balcony and in the evenings you could even see the performances at the Hilton Village.It is next to the elevator, but I had no problems with it, it was quiet. The TV was a bit complicated to operate (I am a bit technically challenged and there were different rules for all 3 remotes). also the aircon is very strong and I had no way of turning it off. (I dont like aircons, so this is minor for other people)
Ilikai Condo 828
Reviewed by Mary
We really enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai. The location was good.The condo was nicely decorated and clean. A few small items could have been included. There was no wine opener and no Kleenex. The Toilet paper was cheap. I also thought 2 towels each for a 1 week stay was skimpy, especially for a beach location. Also it is right next to the elevator. The floor was quiet when we were there, but this could be a distraction during a busier time. The bed is a Murphy. Wasn't the best, but not bad. One more strange thing; the silverware was so small, looked like s child's set; tiny spoons and forks.These are all very small things and did not deter our stay. Ala Moana Park is wonderful and a 5 minute walk.We enjoyed having the beach chairs, small cooler and beach towels.If you have a car, there is a parking lot that is $6. for 10 hours. A much better deal than the hotel. It is right next to the Ilikai at the Marina.
Fantastic accomodation in the heart of Waikiki

My husband, our god daughter (19) and I have just returned from our 3rd visit to Honolulu and we stayed in room 828. It was the best accomodation we have had so far. It was large for 3 adults to stay for 2 weeks, the room is centrally located to washing facilities and lifts. The view of the lagoon and beach was fantastic and we enjoyed our breakfast each morning on the lanai. We even had sneak peaks of the Hilton's luau each night. The room is well appointed with kitchen items, coffee maker, large fridge and cooktops. There were even cooler bags and beach mats and chairs. Other friends of ours were also staying at the condos and our room was the brightest and most homely of all. The actual building is so convenient to the trolley bus stop, Wailana coffee lounge and in very close walking distance to ala Moana shopping Centre and car rental. We cant wait to get back to room 828 and would highly recommend it to all.

Condo 828 was absolutely lovely. It is so clean, modern, and well equipped...a perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii. The resort is wonderful with a great restaurant, staff, views, valet and pool. We also enjoyed perfect views from the lanai every night of the Hilton's luau and the fireworks on Friday on Waikiki beach. Plus, it was so easy to book and affordable!
We're happy you enjoyed our second home.

Our stay in condo 828
Reviewed by Amy from Phoenix
Overall, our stay was wonderful. The room was exactly as it was presented. The Ilikai is very nice and close enough to the Hilton that we were able to cut through the street to get to all the shops. The only things I could ask for would be a softer mattress and we missed having a tub to bathe our 2 year old, but we made due with the shower. Also, the walk to the beach takes a bit longer than was presented, but we found that for the price we paid, you really couldn't ask for more! Thank you so much for sharing your condo!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to having you visit our second home again. Mahalo.

The room was very clean! All the comforts of home, Wi-FI, DVR, DVD, cable, terrific! Loved the marble floors and the king-sized bed! The view was great! Very accessible to everything, either by bus or walking. The Friday night fireworks were especially enjoyable. I would highly recommend you experience it for yourself. Can't be beat!
Affordable, Fantastic Location with Great View
Reviewed by WakeUpScreaming
We stayed at the Ilikai Room 828 in late april.I had booked online, so I had saw pictures and new what to expect -- we weren't dissapointed! Beautiful view facing East, so we got the morning sun and the view of the imposing Hilton tower right out our window.
There was 3 of us, and I got the futon to sleep on.Both mattresses left us desiring a little more comfort. The futon mattress is pretty hard/stiff/firm.
The first night we also had to get used to the indoor air conditioning and heat from outside. We found by closing the patio door, that it got too cold. The only provided blanket for the futon was this very wafer-thin synthetic microfiber sheet/blanket that didn't provide any warmth. My sister, who always complains that it's too hot, actually complained that it was too cold as well. So the next night, we opened the patio doors about 1-2 feet, so we got the air-conditioning, along with the hot, warm humid air from outside. It seemed to work.
The internet access via wi-fi was a pleasant surprise, as most hotels will say they have wifi access, then charge you an outrageous fee per day. My sister had her ipod, and it was fantastic being able to search restaurants and things on the internet while staying here.
Although we mainly visited restaurants for eating out including Dukes and restaurants in the Hilton Hawaiian Village next door, the kitchen was well used. We stored drinks in the fridge, and used the microwave for heating up food. My sister even made omelettes one morning with a drink using the blender.There was no bath, just a shower, but it is a nice shower. My only critique would be that the shower head shoots out the water powerfully like little spikes, and there is no way to adjust it.
Getting the TV to work, and to simply change the channel was very confusing. There are 3 remotes. My sister and I had alot of trouble getting them to work. It was only by fluke we got it working in time to watch the Royal Wedding.
We apologize for the TV/remote inconvenience. We will make the directions less complicated in the future. We are glad you enjoyed staying in our second home. Mahalo.
