Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chose to stay here because it’s the latest that they built. The place is nice and close to food, restaurants, stores, lots of stuff, especially the beach. Guest services are very attentive and prompt to your requests. Though we had encountered some maintenance issues, the guys took care of it right away. The Wi-Fi too, it was erratic at one time, and they fixed it right after we call. I think it’s small for a 2 bedroom but they are clean and beds are comfortable. They advertised it can have up to 6 people but they only have 4 chairs for the counter when we eat, so some have to stand or sit in the sofa. I don’t know how they really classify partial ocean view from ocean view, coz I paid for ocean view, but I think I only got 60-75% of it. The main room has a bidet, and privacy door for bathroom and stand shower, but the 2nd bathroom, it’s still ok, just regular toilet bowl and the square sink does not drain fast enough so you see “gewy” stuff. Just run the water more. Overall, it’s a nice stay.

Our second time staying at the Grand Islander at Hilton Hawaiian Village and it won’t be our last. The room are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated with full kitchens. Makes it nice to be able to have breakfast and lunch easily available. Just a quick walk to Waikiki beach and easy access to the resorts many pools, shops and restaurants.

Kalia tower - utter dump. Don’t waste your money book another hotel. The room was dirty, dated and furniture in it damaged. Hotel check in staff were disgusting with their attitude because I’d booked through a travel agent and not direct. Gross

This is a wonderful place to stay. Quite busy for August, but there's plenty of things to do. The location is spectacular. Plenty to explore around the village. A few places within walking distance. We used Lyft to get around. A car isn't really needed if using that service. Glad we brought floaties for the ocean then gave them away at the end of our trip. Overall, great place to stay.

The property is beautiful, very well equipped and has a nice location, however, to many people in the same place which leads to receive a mediocre service. Additionally the staff is not interested for you to have the best vacation, the just get to the basic. I wouldn't travel to this property again

Wife and I recently had a two week visit there and had a really nice visit. Wife and I visited Tropics Restaurant and staff there were all very friendly and kind. Really made us feel great and the food there was really great food.

I was a guest of a friend who had a timeshare at the Grand Islander. While the 2 bedroom unit was very nice with a lovely ocean view, housekeeping was mediocre at best. Front desk informed us only one day of housekeeping was included but we could call for additional towels etc. But if we wanted additional days of housekeeping it would cost us an additional $147 per day. Between the pool and beach not including the sand, 1 cleaning day per week is not enough. Covid is over & the resort needs to hire back the staff to keep the rooms fresh. The Tapa pool was also poorly maintained. There was an oil film & cloudiness in the water for 2days before it was cleaned so we went to the beach instead. Lastly, they only provided one pool towel & if you didn’t provide a green towel card you did not receive one. For a Hilton resort this is definitely not what we expected. Shame on you!!!

We experienced the most amazing stay starting with penthouse check in at the lounge to all interactions with their staff. They arranged concierge last minute services for car rental and surfboards. They were friendly and treated us like royalty. The room was exceptional and outfitted with every top grade amenity you could ask for. Can’t wait to return

We had to watch it on the news that there was a Legionnaires outbreak at the hotel, with now 5 confirmed cases!! We were not notified by the hotel before or after our stay. They changed all our shower heads while we were there so they knew! This is a huge liability!!! We had to scramble to get tested upon return to our homes. Our tests are still pending but we are showing symptoms!! This is crazy we weren’t notified by the hotel. So awful for a Hilton property!!

Overall HHV resort was great! It's big with lots of food and shopping options and everything is just a short walk from each place. Pools are nice but on the small side but both bldgs we stayed at had their own pool & hot tub which was nice. We tried most restaurants and the food was pricey but delicious, down to the pizza and burgers! You have to try Fresco and the prime rib at Tropics Bar. Bali is an upscale pricey restaurant but we had a great ocean view and food was good, almost made us forget about the cost :). Stayed at GI for 7 days then at Kalia for 3 days. GI 2 BR ocean view (2401) was a corner room with magnificent views!! It was only 2 of us so the room was huge, clean and well maintained. From front desk to bell men everyone was very nice and helpful. GI is furthest from the ocean but worked for us and most of the tours pick up from their LL so that's convenient. They have their own pool and hot tub which was nice I never even went to any of the other pools. I would definitely recommend staying in this bldg although I know the points are high but in my opinion its worth it. Kalia stayed in 1BR ocean view (1457) corner room. It was very nice but older than the GI and didn't have the conveniences of washer/dryer in our room, ice maker in room, separate shower etc. We knew this going in but it was a challenge going from GI to Kalia. This resort is very nice and close to lots of other restaurants and entertainment. I would definitely recommend!!
