Ilikai 2118 - This is our 5th stay at Ilikai and our first stay in unit 2116. We loved our time here. The view is amazing!!! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need (my only suggestion would be add some champagne glasses) The bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is lovely and had plenty of towels. We also liked the unit was tiled rather than carpeted. We will stay here again on our next visit.
Ilikai 2116 - Ilikai Unit 2116 was great, water in shower was hot and the water pressure was excellent. Kitchen facilities are adequate and comfy bed. View from balcony is excellent, lovely view of lagoon and ocean.
Ilikai 2116 - I loved the ease of booking the condo online. The condo exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and spacious. Great views of the beach and fireworks! The balcony was huge! I would definitely stay here again.
Ilikai 2116 - Lovely, well appointed apartment with superb views. Good location in a quieter part of the town, yet very accessible. Great value. Very obliging owner - we appreciated being able to check in early in the morning. Excellent restaurant onsite with wonderful food - the best we had in Hawaii and excellent bar food. I would recommend this apartment.
Ilikai 2116 - The place is just like the pictures. Very clean and has an amazing view. What I also liked was that they had a blender, toaster, cooking utensils, plates cups anything you can think of which was really nice to have. In the middle of our stay we had a small issue with our a/c and they were very very quick to resolve the small problem. Thank you so much and will definitely be staying here again. Also the location is great! Has everything around, food, malls, beach, anything. Definitely made our experience in Hawaii feel like home :)
We stayed at the Ilikai Unit 2116 in September 2014, and it was great! We unfortunately had booked a whole week but got stuck in a hurricane, so we were delayed by 3 days. However, it was sitting there waiting for us and we are so glad we got 4 nights there. The unit was clean, nicely furnished, and it has amazing views both towards diamond head and of the Hilton lagoon and ocean. It was very close to amenities and restaurants, and a bit of a walk (10-15 min) to the core waikiki shopping areas. It was nice though to be a little removed from the hustle and bustle. The unit was fully stocked with all kitchen items, and towels etc. The washer/dryer down the hall was handy as well. There were no major issues we found with the unit, it was lovely! We rented a car and the valet people were very friendly and quick. There were no issues there. It was $28 for 24 hours. I recommend renting this unit, and using Waikiki Beach Rentals. They are friendly, helpful, and everything went very smoothly!
I stayed in a privately-owned condo in the Ilikai 2116. The condo itself was immaculately clean and updated; and included a fully stocked kitchen in terms of dishes, utensils (for eating and cooking), full fridge, microwave, and stove/oven combo. Even better, as soon as you swing the door open, you're greeted with a grand, beautiful view of the vast ocean and lagoon, which you won't find anywhere else! I slept with my sliding doors wide open every night just to hear the waves roll and crash. I knew about the alternative metered parking ($20, I believe) being cheaper than hotel valet ($28), but since i was in/out throughout each day, I opted for the valet fee which covers a whole day no matter how many times you leave. The beach really is a very short walk away and much less crowded than the Castle Waikiki, so if you want less people and cleaner sand, stick with the Ilikai (you can always do a 15mins walk down to the Castle Waikiki side if you get curious). The pool wasn't crowded at all, and was even heated! And the lanai was very relaxing to unwind on after a day of circling the island or hiking up a mountainside to see a waterfall. The hotel is centrally located from decent places to eat (such as McDonalds n Subway for those on a budget). Target n Safeway were a 10mins drive away, so I stocked up on groceries to save $. Glad I settled with a unit on the 21st floor because I would have felt suffocated if I was on a lower level with all the TALL buildings standing over Oahu (I do prefer the Big Island). Nonetheless, great condo for a great price. Hands down. Last but not least, WBR was a BREEZE to work with. Easy as 1-2-3. (Thanks, WBR!)
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in your condo. Well appointed, clean and perfectly located. The hotel staff were very helpful and the Ilikai bar and Grill was a perfect option for snacks and drinks. Everything was within walking distance, shops, beaches, groceries and restaurants. The unit was well stocked with everything that was needed for our 8 day stay. Like others I would not recommend the restaurant at the top (Sarentos), many better options are available nearby. We will be back (hopefully soon).
I was in Hawaii for a 9 day stay on a doctoral academic residency that required a ton of homework and my husband is a post-cardiac event patient so accommodations and amenities were essential. The condo provided a home away from home for us as it was soooo cozy and enabled me to cook all my husband's heart healthy meals along with being able to write papers and submit online to sound of the ocean with the sliding doors open. This in itself made our Hawaiian visit most memorable. My husband especially enjoyed the huge flat screen and couch as NFL and NBA games came on five hours earlier rather than late in night so he could sit back and watch them all afternoon. He also loved using a code door entry rather than key which provided us with an extra sense of security when we left the condo. I appreciated a blender in the unit as start the day with protein shakes that need to be blended. Also, the toaster was big hit as my husband loves toast with his fruit as a snack which makes it just like home. The deep tub was a hit after the all day tours, not to mention the nightly luaos we could view from our balcony. Thank you for your assistance for minor internet connection issues- my husband was able to work remotely during the day and I was able to submit my papers with ease. In the morning before class, we were able to take a run a few times around the lagoon just before sunrise (the sidewalk was lit) then do a water workout in the pool, met a few of the other residents and would love to come back to teach water aerobics for them, you already have the participation willing and waiting! Cant wait to plan to return soon to the Ilikai. We googled the original Hawaii Five-O opening scene of the building, very cool!
