Aloha! You've read all the reviews: tired hotel, worn out decor, noise, etc. We tended to see the bright side during our stay at the Ilikai/Waikiki Marina Resort. I agree, there's not much "resort" to the place, no swanky hotel bar, no beach on the property, no palapas to hang out under while some beach waiter fetches you mai tais....

Arrived by cab with a family of 4 and lots of luggage. The Waikiki Marina is located within the Ilikai Hotel but they have separate staff. It's a bit confusing finding the office in order to check in and we were lugging our own bags until we came across the porter. Once we got that part sorted out we checked...

Although FINDING the resort was very difficult....the stay was wonderful. All staff welcomed us and made every effort to see that our stay was peasant. Accomodations were good, all appliances were in working order and the place was clean. Elevators were painful, but we were on the third floor so we used the stairs.

For 2.5 stars this hotel was much better than what I expected. Much better. Rooms were clean with everything that suppose to be there including kitchen items. Good housekeeping, plasma TV, free internet and awesome ocean view from the window (26th floor) - that's what got me, but make sure to ask for **02 (and probably **01) room and as...
