Ilikai Hotel Condos condo description


This condo, located at the quiet end of Waikiki in the beautiful Ilikai Hotel, has an amazing view of the ocean and Duke Kahanamoku Beach and Lagoon. Bring your surfboards/paddle boards/boogie boards (a bather's elevator can accommodate boards up to 10 feet, 2 inches long), and ride the waves at some of the most famous and best surf breaks on the south shore of Oahu. Two of these surf breaks (Kaisers and Ala Moana Harbor), are within view from your condo's lanai for dawn patrol and an early go-out. If you have never tried surfing before, lessons and water craft rentals can be obtained at several locations along the Waikiki beaches.

Morning sun and warm, gentle trade winds caress you as you check out the ocean and surf, enjoy breakfast, and plan your day on your lanai. Not a surfer? Enjoy sitting on your lanai and soaking up the sun while enhancing your tan or stroll down to the best wide sandy beaches at Waikiki or Ala Moana Beach Park for a swim in the crystal clear ocean and sun bathing. Fort DeRussy Beach and Ala Moana Beach Park are especially good for long swims and snorkeling. If the ocean is not for you, you can swim, sunbath, and relax by the hotel pool or explore the many tourist attractions nearby, including golf at the beautiful Ala Wai golf course.

There is no need to rent a car as the Ilikai is centrally located. A market, coffee shop, gift shops, and restaurant are located in the lobby area of the Ilikai. Sarento's gourmet restaurant at the top of the Ilikai offers panoramic views of the ocean and mountains while you dine. Restaurants and convenience stores at Ala Moana Shopping Center (Hawaii's largest shopping center), are just an easy 10-15 minute stroll from the Ilikai. More than 90 shops, markets, restaurants, and exhibits are next door to your condo at the Hilton Hawaiian Village for you to explore. Retail establishments and restaurants along Kalakaua Avenue in downtown Waikiki are all within easy walking distance as well. Don't feel like walking? No problem! You can always catch a cab, free or paid trolley, or the city bus to take you to locations on the island. If you want the convenience of your own transportation, there is a car rental agency across the street from the Ilikai. Parking is available at the Ilikai for a fee or there is free parking behind the Ilikai in the public parking lot.

Each Friday evening, a spectacular fireworks display overlooking the Hilton Hawaiian lagoon, can be experienced right from your lanai. Traditional hula shows and exciting nightlife can be enjoyed all around the island or closer to your condo along Waikiki Beach. Rent this condo and discover that the Ilikai has it all!

We require a 7 night minimum occupancy period. Please be advised, reservation dates are not confirmed until the payee receives confirmation the security deposit payment has been made.

                            Aloha, we had an awesome 10 days in the unit. It was exactly as described on the website. Magnificent views of the blue pacific ocean. Best seats/views in the house for the Hilton Hotel traditional Friday night fireworks display as well as the Hilton Hotel Luau held every night from our balcony. We would highly recommend the unit for couples it is ideal for 2 any more than 2 may make it a little crowded even though the unit has a sleeper couch. Easy access for early flight arrivals as you do not need to actually check in at the hotel reception and Sherman was only too happy to let us arrive early as we landed at 7.20am and were inside the unit by 8.20am. Brilliant location for easy access to the main attractions of Waikiki as well as being at the quiet end of the resort. Hopefully we will return. Mahalo

                            We had a great vacation once again at the Ilikai, this is our first stay in this unit and the description of the unit was very accurate. The unit does need an upgrade but was very comfortable. This is good value for the money and I have no hesitation recommending this unit.

                            I'd actually give it more like a 3.5, but that isn't possible. The description was accurate in the fine print, but the "1 bedroom" in the title is not the case. It is indeed a studio (as was stated in the text) and there is virtually no privacy. As with most sofa beds, adults will find it quite uncomfortable. Kitchen and bath were good, location was great. One inconvenience - We discovered that the wireless internet is controlled by a switch just inside the front door. If you mistakenly turn that off, no wireless.. I did report that to the property manager. Took nearly 4 weeks for the damage deposit to be returned.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children.

                            Manager response: Mahalo to Jay for his review, star rating, assessment that the kitchen and bath were good, and informing future travelers that the electrical switch inside the front door provides power to the wireless modem. We do provide an explanation of the Ilikai one bedroom classification in our listing for the information of travelers. While we have no control over the return of security deposits sent to our property manager, we have proactively brought this concern to her attention.

                            My wife and I rented this condo the last week of January (2014). We should have read the reviews more carefully. Lynda from BC writes "the curtains, bedspead and air ducts were especially dirty". This condition was certainly worse 8 months later and definitely hadn't been addressed. We entered the unit to a musty smell and were shocked at the condition of the unit, especially the kitchen. We immediately left, forfeiting funds that we had prepaid for the entire stay. This after meeting with a Property Management representative who agreed we had a valid concern. We even paid the full cleaning fee and didn't stay for even one night. Its a great building in an excellent location. We were in two other rental units that were beautiful. We would highly recommend this area for its proximity to everything and the spectacular view. But, do yourself a favour and DON"T RENT THIS UNIT!! Bryan and Lynn (BC Canada)

                            Manager response: The items mentioned in this review were brought to the attention of our property manager and have been corrected. Please read the other reviews for a more accurate accessment of our condo. Mahalo

                            Great view-can see ocean, the lagoon, can watch the luau show from the lanai. If someone needs to sleep on the sofa bed--he/she should like sofa beds or not have a bad back; the other king bed was comfortable. Kitchen was sufficient with a dining area. Owner was very helpful answering questions/concerns in a timely manner. Waikiki beach and shopping area is all in walking distance.

                            My husband and I spent 3 weeks in this Ilikai Hotel condo. The unit was as was portrayed on the site listing, and while it had not been recently upgraded the furniture was fairly new and in good condition. The unit had all the amenities we needed to do basic housekeeping and cooking and there were some beach chairs, mats and an umbrella available for our use. We especially liked the location of this condo. From our lanai we had a beautiful view of the lagoon and ocean and we're entertained by the roof top luau and fireworks at the Hilton Hotel next door. The condo is situated within walking distance to Waikiki Beach and the Ala Moana Mall and has access to transit just out front of the hotel. Our only complaint is that the unit could have been cleaned more carefully. The curtains, bedspread and air ducts were especially dirty. This condo may not have been fancy but it met our needs and provided us with reasonable accommodation and a great location for our stay on Oahu.

                            Manager response: Thank you for your four star rating. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We too love the location, especially the beautiful view of the lagoon and ocean from our lanai as well as the close proximity to the beach and attractions of the Waikiki and Ala Moana areas. In addition to the thorough cleaning accomplished by our property manager upon departure of our guests, we annually visit our condo and conduct a general cleaning and make continuous improvements. We hope you will consider booking a reservation with us for your future travels to Oahu.

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About: We are a retired Coast Guard Veteran/Marine Ecologist and Teacher. We bought this condo because we love visiting Hawaii, especially Waikiki Beach, each year.

                          Why Ilikai Hotel Condos:
                          We were sold on the iconic Ilikai because of the beautiful ocean view and the close proximity to everything in the Waikiki area.
