Wonderful with a few exceptions
Traveled with father, flew in from San Francisco, rental car, and spent most of the time outside of Waikiki for business.
Location - At the west tip of Waikiki, barely at the edge. If you want to be in central Waikiki this isn't it. ABC Superette was across the street which made buying basics easy. Also a McDonalds if you need one. We wanted a place away from the noise, so naturally facing the Marina should shelter us from the tourist buses, garbage trucks etc. For the most part, we were right, except for two things - 1. There is a lot of gathering of people on the street, chatting, and also partying on docked boats Friday night. 2. It wouldn't be so much of a problem except the window and balcony doors don't seal well, or at all. Noise comes in as if the windows were open. That noise also includes garbage trucks at 4am, and the occasional tour bus taking a shortcut. The Duck boat tour also launches nearby where they have to use full throttle to get back onto land. Very loud.
Parking - Parking is really easy, within the same building. Cost is $23 a day, and you can prepay the entire stay the first time you exit the parking garage. Note that there are steps going to the elevator, at least in our experience. We didn't see a 100% ADA access to the residence part of the building. Elevators are fast, so there isn't much waiting time.
Amenities - This condo has almost everything you could ever need. In the kitchen, everything plus some basics like cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar. In the closets, baby crib, stroller, sunblock, bug repellent spray, extra towels, iron/board, you name it. Kitchen feels completely new. WIFI gets about 6mbps down and 2mbps up, like DSL speeds.
Quality - If you're reading down this far, you'll be interested to know that a lot of the floor tiles are loose in the unit. I think the owner must've been scammed with a bad tile contractor, or there is an issue with the subflooring of the building. The flooring in the bathroom is really bad, with all most all of the grout missing, and the tiles clicking as you walk over them. There is a downslope towards the shower which is either bc the tile contractor didn't level out the floor first, or something is still sinking in that corner. Didn't really affect the stay, but was unsettling at times. My dad complained everyday about it. Also again, the windows and balcony door does not seal completely. Shower pressure/flow was pretty low. Meanwhile the bathroom sink didn't have any water saver devices.
Furnishings - lots of furniture, very useful and placed effectively. Bed was decently comfortable, but the head board is loose and not mounted securely to anything. Long chair in living room was comfortable and where I spend most of my time. There is one small chair for the tiny balcony, which in the end we didn't use much.
Conclusion - Would we stay here again to resolve our noise sensitivity - No. Do we think its a good value - definitely. I'd definitely recommend this unit for a family of 4 with a tight budget.
My husband and I stayed at the Ilikai Marina condo for 2 weeks and loved it. The location was perfect. We could walk to the Waikiki beach easily, as well as the Ala Moana Park and Beach. Our car was parked on the same level as the condo, making it convenient to load and unload the trunk. We were impressed with the congenial and helpful parking attendants.We thoroughly enjoyed the view of the marina, with the boats coming and going during the day. We sat on the balcony, with snacks and drinks, taking in the lovely sunsets many evenings. The laundry facilities were located one floor above the condo. All in all, we were very pleased with the condo, especially the location. We would happily return to this condo.
Great View and plenty of beach supplies
Great view of marina, sunsets and fireworks.
The condo was well equipped with everything needed for our stay. We enjoyed the use of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and ice chest.
Will definitely check this place for availability for our next trip!
Review for condo 786
We loved the fantastic view of the marina! The condo was very nice and very clean. It is such a great location because you can easily walk along the beach or go for swim in 10 minutes. It is located very close to the ABC stores and a grocery store we found within a 10 minute walk that we could pick up some items like milk and bread. All the people that work at the condo were very kind and friendly. We enjoyed our trip very much!
Stay was okay
Beautiful view of Friday night Fireworks and sunset
Parking underneath was easy
Kitchen was fully stocked
A/C was great
Was unable to watch basic cable in living room although Roku was available was hard to navigate
Basic cable in the room had to flip channels by standing next to tv. The remote was extremely sticky from God knows what!
Plenty of loose tiles around the property.
Outdated Chairs and table on balcony
The bed had sand in it and me and my husband had a hard time sleepy because it made us itchy
Sand in the drawers next to bed
Sand all over the floor next to drawers like it was not vacuumed well
Some plates were dirty in the cabinets and had to be washed before use
