In April 2015, we stayed for 2 weeks in unit 816 of the Ilikai and it was great!. The condo is clean. Everything you need in a kitchen were supplied. All the stainless steel appliances work very good. We cooked most of our food instead of going to the restaurant and saved a lot of money. Of course we splurged at the restaurants a few times! The Cheesecake factory has excellent food, and especially the cheesecakes! If you!'re staying in Waikikii, you must try the Tropics which is a restaurant at the Hilton. Great food! Cinnamon's in the Ilikai has great breakfast! Back to the Ilikai, there are two suggestions that I would make: bring extra facecloths and also a pair of water shoes. As much as the beach is fabulous, unfortunately there are lava rocks in the water which makes it extremely hard on the feet. We knew this before booking so had brought our water shoes so we didn't mind. They also sell water shoes at the Ka'ui market in the Ilikai for about $15 and I think they also sell them at the ABC store which is just across the street. We went often to buy souvenirs, macadamia nuts (a must), bread and eggs when we ran out, or booze, they sell pretty much everything and they're everywhere in Waikiki! We rented a car twice and both times used Alamo which is just across the street. Very satisfied! There's also a McDonalds across the street. There is also a park and mall walking distance to this condo. I could go on, but must go but I would definetly recommend this condo . Aloha !
