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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel needs upgrades and they could do better cleaning before turning over the room. Some staff could be a little nicer. I understand they deal with rude tourist on a daily but dont bring that attitude to the next guest you need to help.

Hotel's Favourite
Have been to HI almost every year and this was our first stay here. I was a little apprehensive before getting there, but was very pleased with all facets of our stay. They even give the newspaper every morning, and give coupons for free waters and Dave's ice cream down in the lobby. Didn't have a chance but really wanted to try Pesca's (the restaurant at the top). Will definitely try on our next stay at the Ilikai!

Room was spacious, but not very clean. The courtyard was good. Coffee shop closes very early, 3 pm, i guess. The staff at check in was very rude, didn’t even offer us a welcome drink. Absolutely very costly for the quality of stay

We stayed for a week and had a very pleasant stay. The kitchen made for convenient breakfast and lunches. Hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Although the hotel is an older high rise, it has been kept up to date. And while not directly on the beach, it is adjacent to a hotel complex that is on the beach and only a couple of minutes walk past the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor.

Wife and I never been to Hawaii, so we decided to go for our 9th anniversary. We stayed at this hotel/resort for seven days. The outside and coming into the hotel was gorgeous and clean. Great location. Transportation was convenient with stores and the mall within walking distant. The staff was very nice. I gave this resort a three because the hotel, rooms need to be updated. The furniture was old. The couch was dirty. The carpet needs to be replaced. The baseboards need to be cleaned or painted. There were no outlets on the old end tables. Do not stay on the second floor. We had cigarette butts and trash falling from the top floors on to our porch.

Location is good. Short walk to the beach. No room cleaning. Stay was good. Hard to get into the restaurant. Need more wait staff. Lots of open tables. Limited view of beach. Promised a tub.. but didn't get it. That is important for my wife's back.

Aloha JT_Skyguy! Thank you for staying at the Ilikai Hotel & Luxury Suites and for taking the time in writing a review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I do apologize for you folks not having a tub. Only certain categories have tubs so I'm sure there was a miscommunication somewhere. Nonetheless, I do apologize for that. Cinnamons restaurant has been a little tough to get in as they are short on staffing but I believe staffing is getting a little better. I do hope you give us another opportunity to serve you and your family on a future visit. Please give me a call directly and I can assist you in making sure the room you book has a tub. Mahalo, Sandra Hashimoto Hotel Manager

Nice and clean remodeled rooms and love the kitchen. The rooms were spacious, everything clean and I was pleasantly surprised. It is also such a convenient location and we had a nice view of the pool and ocean.

We love to stay at the Ilikai over time it has become our favourite in Waikiki. Love the location and if you can select a room with a view these are awesome. Like the rooms best overlooking the lagoon that get the morning sun on the lanai. Get great coffee in lobby area too.

Carpets needed be shampooed a long time ago. Sperm and urine from previous guests on pullout bed linen. If housekeeping put in more effort it would be good. Front desk lady was really nice. The man was a little sassy. Restaurant was amazing. The parking people was fast. If only the cleanliness was better, my rating would have been better.

Aloha mahea22, While it’s nice to hear you thought our restaurant was amazing and the woman at the front desk was really nice, we extend our apologies for the other shortcomings that resulted in your stay being anything besides wonderful. We strive to provide clean and comfortable accommodations for our guests, and we’re sorry this wasn’t the case for you. We are currently in the process of replacing carpeting in all units. Nevertheless, our apologies. Your input is greatly appreciated and will be sent to our team for review. With Aloha, Sandra Hashimoto Hotel Manager
