Each guest room and suite features extra spacious accommodations with a large lanai offering fabulous views. The hotel walkway from the lobby leads to the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and beach.
With our amenity fee for all stays, Ilikai Hotel & Luxury Suites allows guests to enjoy many hotel services and activities without having to incur miscellaneous charges. You'll also enjoy two heated swimming pools, fitness room, coffee shop, restaurant and more.
We have no complaints about our stay. Staff was warm and welcoming. The entire inside and out is clean and maintained. The views are incredible with a lovely ambience on the property inside and out. I felt safe the entire time which is important to me. The beach is just a very short walk. We watched the morning sky light up each day and had a beautiful sunset view each night. If I return here, I would stay again. The ABC stores are lifesavers for whatever u need and there is one right on the corner. Subway sandwiches across the street. Trolley and bus stops right out front. I miss it already.
We stayed in the 14th floor. Nice lagoon and Ocean views from the Balcony. Sun rise and sun set could not be seen. Surfing, stand up paddle, and equipment rental available through Duke's lagoon team in the Hotel. 2 queen size beds are nice. Sofa cum bed is old, sagging and not very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Common washing and drying facility in the Hotel. Restaurants are there in the Hotel premises. Central location and easy access to other restaurants, shopping. Valet parking services available. There were shows and activities on some days of the week. We enjoyed our family holiday.
This trip was for our 50th wedding anniversary. We were being remarried at the Ilakai hotel on the 30th floor at the Pesca restaurant and chapel. The wedding ceremony was flawless the Pesca staff amazing, especially Alan and Rhea who put all of it together with short notice. Our trip of course was during Covid. We has reserved an upgraded suite with ocean view and had talked with hotel reservations when we arrived we received an old worn room with marina view. Once we complained we were moved to a ocean view room still very worn with minor cleanliness issues. The staff was friendly and accommodating if asked. The restaurant Cinnamons we were most disappointed in. There food was bland, the drinks appeared to be watered down and we had a hard time to even find them open. The bellman and the Valet staff were excellent and worked very hard to accomodate your needs…
This is my last time staying in this establishment!!! Your rate seems low but you charge a $25 amenity fee then $50 fee that we only ask for towers, coffee, tea once during our 4 nights stay with NO maid service!!! TV never work!!! This hotel sucks!!! Hotel shut down few elevators during such busy season!! We had to wait for half an hour in order to go down to the lobby is unacceptable!!
