This was my first time staying at Ilikai condo's and I have to say I was BLOWN AWAY!! The view was absolutely mesmerizing. The sunsets are to die for!! The condo was clean and spacious. having a kitchen was a fabulous bonus. It is centrally located in Waikiki and we LOVED the valet parking, made it so convenient to come and go when we wanted!!
We will definitely be back!!!!
The view from the Lanai was
4 1/2 stars. The Hilton across from 1236 blocked some the ocean view... but overall a beautiful view.
The apartment on the hand was extremely outdated. The bed is a platform bed and extremely low to the ground and uncomfortable. The sheets had a stale smell.The sleeper soft was worn and has a 1990's look. Although the T.V. is good size... maybe 46 to 50 inch the cable channels are limited... a lot of the same channels over and over through the channel selection. The kitchen.... dated besides the refrigerator.The bathroom is shower only and the towels are old and smelly.There is two small beach chairs, two small umbrellas,a cooler bag and kiddie boogie boards and ONE? beach towel for use at the beach.
Overall the the apartment was dated and slightly dirty but the building is in a good location on the end of Waikiki Beach that is not very crowded. The building also has several shops,a convenience store and a very good restaurant. There plenty restaurants and the shopping mall is in walking distance.I would stay in the building again without hesitation but 1236 needs renovation before I would stay there again.
