Absolutely fantastic stay with a beautiful view!
This is a fantastic condo! The open floor plan, the Hawaiian style furniture, the two lanais. Fantastic! The Ilikai is a beautiful building at the beginning of the main drag of Waikiki. It is a 2.75 mile walk from the Ilikai to the aquarium. A doozy of a trek if you hike it both ways, but most of it can be done on the beach so totally worth it. If you are nitpicky like a lot of the people reviewing this place are, stay somewhere else. If opening a sticky door to a beautiful lanai overlooking the ocean is too much for you, stay somewhere else. To those people I say, "Get over yourself!" Metal and sea salt tend to clash, but seriously, push the door a little harder, guide it just a bit. The curtains were great. The rod extends therefor putting a little ridge in the rod you have to guide the curtain over. If that is seriously too much for you to handle, stay somewhere else. This place was great. The master which is on the front of the condo has a view and a king size, very firm bed, and yes, jaguars looking over you. It has a slider door that closes it off to the main room. It has air conditioning. It has a jacuzzi tub we didn't use, just the shower. There are 2 closets with hangers, one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. There is also a dresser and tv. The second bedroom is 2 twins. It also has a slider door that closes it off to the main room. There is a lanai directly off that room as well overlooking the marina. It is the best of both worlds with the view. In the day you see the lagoon and palm trees, at night, the boats and docks are light up and show off a spectacular view of the marina. The Ilikai has 2 pools. We didn't use either, but the outdoor one is right below your balcony and looks great. Walking around the lagoon is a great start to the day and leads you right to Hilton Hawaiian Village where there are plenty of places to eat. Take the short cut out the door to the right to get there in a minute. There are shops in the Ilikai. There is Valet service for your car which was terrific and worth every penny. Alamoana shopping center is right there. We LOVED this place! Do not let other uber picky people deter you from this condo. Just because the fridge isn't brand new, doesn't mean it doesn't work. There is no carpet anymore either. It's all tile and wood looking flooring. Beach stuff, plenty of dishes, breezes, views. It's a great place to stay on Waikiki! I would say more great stuff about this place, but no more room too! Love it
So happy you enjoyed the condo and our gorgeous views! Although, as you say the fridge works, we are replacing all the kitchen appliances with brand new stainless steel ones this summer, so it will be even nicer when your return! Much Aloha, Pat

We stayed at the Ilikai Hotel Unit #1143 and had a wonderful stay. The unit has such an awesome view of the ocean and the marina off the lanais, which this unit has two. We had four people in our party and with the two bedroom two bath unit we had no problem of having enough room. My husbands parents which are in their ninety's very much enjoyed their stay as well. The unit had everything and more that was available. The owner was very accommodating to any questions or concerns that we may have, which was none. We would book this unit again in the future.
View and Location
As reviewers in the past have stated, the view and location are fantastic, but the condo itself needs work. if the worn furniture and furnishings and the old but working appliances and fixtures were updated, the owner could have a truly remarkable and classy place. That said, we enjoyed the stunning view, the convenience of Cinnamon's downstairs, and being able to walk to the Hilton and other Waikiki highlights. If you don't plan to spend much time in the condo or furnishings don't matter, you will love this place. The owner was easy to work with and gave us many tips. Do try Tokkuri Tei Japanese restaurant on Kapahulu Ave.
We have already scheduled to update the kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances this summer! Any worn furnishings will be replaced then as well. Bedding/pillows have already been replaced. Thanks, Pat
Wonderful view and location on quiet end of Waikiki
Overall, the condo has great space, location and tremendous views! All bedding, including pillows, needs to be replaced. The twin beds need to be replaced. The rattan furniture is "island appropriate". The piano is a nice bonus. I was eager to use the jetted tub in master bathroom but the jets were so moldy I didn't dare. The two bedrooms have sliding walls to close off from living room and dining room. That was fine for us but could be an issue for other sleeping arrangements. Some minor updating/refreshing and a thorough cleaning of the jetted tub would make it an easy 5 stars. Pat gave excellent suggestions of what to see on the island. There is a selection of recreational items left from past visitors which can be helpful.
Nice condo, beautiful location and views
We stayed at this condo for 5 days and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. Some of the furnishings were a little dated but that is the only negative I could say (and that's minor). We had 4 adults in this 2 bedroom/2 bathroom in the 11th floor condo. It was a corner unit with floor to ceiling windows right around. There are 2 balconies with amazing views of the marina, lagoon and ocean. Sunsets views were incredible. The kitchen was pretty well stocked and the room sizes were ample. There are firework displays from the lagoon on Friday nights as well as a Hawaiian show with singers and dancers in this hotel/condo (all free). There is a boardwalk along the beach that stretches for miles connecting this hotel to the others. Lots of fun to walk and stop into other hotel bars for a drink and appetizers. The condo owner Pat sent us a very informative email once we booked with all the condo info as well as super info about car rentals, parking, and recommended day trips - all of which we used. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Pat!
Here's our impression of this property.
The owner Pat is very easy to work with and sends all kinds of useful tips, information and suggestions. She responded to emailed quickly and even called us a few times before we arrived.
The pictures of the view are accurate and quite incredible. You have to realize that the Illikai is an older property and it shows in most areas. The temperature in the hallways is not conditioned which is something that I did not care for. It feels like 90+ degrees in the hallways and elevators. The pool is off to side and not connected to the bar restaurant. We felt like it was an afterthought due to no music, no food or drink. It felt lame to us so we went to lagoon a few times.
As far as the condo goes the pictures are representative. It's a older condo with an incredible view, nothing more to say. Pat was awesome and I hesitate to say this but we would not go back. The mattress, sheets, pillows, air conditioning system, appliance are worn out.
The condo is located in the world famous 4 star Ilikai hotel, and shares all the amenities therein. I am so sorry you experienced problems with the a.c. in the hotel hallways and elevators when you were there, perhaps they were working on the system then, as the hotel is fully air-conditioned throughout. Sheets, etc are all provided by the maid service.
Largest shopping mall in state is 5 mins. walk away. The beach and lagoon is right out in front of you!
