Located within renowned Ilikai Hotel is Ilikai Lite, a range of affordable accommodations in traditional decor that still include the services and amenities provided by Ilikai Hotel. The iconic oceanfront Ilikai Hotel is situated on the Ala Wai Yacht Marina at the edge of Waikiki, just two blocks to the Hawaii Convention Center, and a short stroll to Ala Moana Center and Beach Park. A modern paradise blended with nostalgic Hawaiian-style hospitality, guests enjoy two hotel swimming pools, coffee shop & cafe, fitness center, and local favorite Dave’s Hawaiian Ice Cream. All accommodations feature full kitchens and a private balcony.
Just the fact that there was still hair on our shower walls, it didn’t seem too secure being that anyone and everyone could come in and out of the elevators/hotel pools, cinnamons was closed on the 2 days we were there. We weren’t able to do late check out, and we had a loud wake up knock by security at 7am because they had pest control that day we were checking out
Saved our vacation
(Rapid City, South Dakota)
We had reservations at another property. Upon check in it was a complete disappointment. TV and WiFi didn’t work. Room was dirty and outdated. Checked out next day and got room for 13 nights at the Ilikai. It exceeded expectations. Great room, view, location. Staff was great. We are planning to go back. Thank you!!!
Wonderful Place to stay
We stayed for a week, and had the best time. I would have love to have daily housekeeping, however due to COVID that was not an option. However, they hotel does provide everything you need upon request.
My friend and I stayed in suite # 2118 for a week. The room had two double beds, living room with couch and TV, a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom, and free wifi.
We also enjoyed the huge balcony with an amazing view of the ocean and Duke Kahanamoku lagoon (in front of the Hilton). Just off the main Waikiki strip (walking distance), it was a great location, minutes to the beach and minutes to Kalakaua Ave.
This facility also has two pools, one on the ground/lobby level, and one on the second floor that's great for sunbathing. There's a coffee shop, restaurant and delicious ice cream from Dave's Ice Cream... which we patronized EVERY DAY :)
Highly recommend this location for its value.
100% Non-Smoking Property
(San Diego, California)
We stayed in private condo in Ilikai. Happy to report a new non-smoking policy was enacted for anywhere on the grounds or in the rooms. All the rooms have kitchens which makes this resort more desirable for families. I wish the 2nd floor pool and patio area was designated as for “Adults Only” but it’s not (yet). Great location next to Hilton beach and lagoon with yacht harbor adjacent. Fantastic lobby level patio outside area with trees and plants. Good restaurant on site, and handy convenience store that sells just about everything you would need including alcohol. Only valet parking but that’s to be expected in any city setting. Choose your view when booking room and I suggest sunset ocean view and it’s best on high floor. While not a 5-star Resort like Ritz Carlton, I’m giving Ilikai score of 5 because of large rooms with kitchens and balconies as well as for location on the less hectic end of Waikiki.
