The hotel in a beautiful location. The entire complex renovated. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Wonderful, smiling and always helpful people. Very friendly. It was a wonderful experience. Rooms clean, new and very comfortable. I think this is one of the best or the best hotel on the island.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel is a tranquil beauty with unmatched service. One of our favorite hotels and we have been staying for the last 30 years. Always beautiful and great service. The pool area is relaxing with beautiful views of Diamondhead and the pool temperature perfect. Rooms perfectly appointed and great service throughout the hotel.

I grew up in Hawaii, but didn’t spend much time in Waikiki. On this trip since I was traveling alone, I splurged on the oceanfront and Diamond Head view. It was worth it! I was surprised that this old kama’aina was still thrilled by seeing Diamond Head from my room. The hotel was renovated during covid and everything was beautiful. There is not a lot of sandy beach at this hotel so be aware. But the water conditions here are amazing and I took two surfing lessons. Even for a complete novice, I was able to stand and have a wonderful time surfing right from the hotel beach. I highly recommend it! All the staff I encountered were incredibly friendly and smiling. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again with my family.

Unparalleled service, delectable food options and the location with ocean views breathtaking. Not a fan of the crowded pool layout yet everything else on-property compensates. Location in Honolulu is steps from necessities and the beach access is unmatched.

The best hotel in Hawaii. Receptionists were super nice, I had one of the best massages at the spa( Brent is the best), Pool services were great, all the foods were great! The sonic alchemy session that the hotel provided was awesome! I want to meet Ms Michelle Pirret ( in a sound proof room next time!) again. Unfortunately, one of the staffs at the halekulani boutique yelled at my 1 year old son who touched a product and dropped, and she was very angry and scary. I thought I was at a 1 star hotel boutique. I was very shocked that she yelled and got angry at small child, and forced me to buy it. She was like “You broke this, be careful! You have to buy this”!! Please don’t yell at my 1 year old son! It’s my fault to let my son touch it ( 20 $ of small product.) and I don’t mind paying for the damage but she is certainly not educated to work at 5 star hotels. Other than that, I had great time at the halekulani hotel for 10 days!

When it comes to rating a 5 star hotel, the Halekulani should set the bench mark. The rooms are well maintained and of quality, the views are uninterrupted. Walking distance to shops, bars, supermarkets & restaurants. The rooms and grounds are peaceful and it’s very easy to forget you are right in the midst of Waikiki. Thé pool, is pristine, manned by happy staff who gladly help you to a lounger and prepare it with lovely soft towels. They are also attentive throughout the day, providing wash cloths, menu’s, etc It’s not the kind of pool that has loads of kids jumping in and out, it’s very adult. From the pool, there is an entry gate, for guests only, to access the beach, which is quite a small section, however we found it perfect as it wasn’t overcrowded. It was easy to go between sun lounger by the pool, to a dip in the ocean. The restaurants and bars inside the hotel can also not be faulted. Hotel Staff are also a big part of your holiday experience and hotel rating. I can honestly say, each person we met or spoke to were all impeccable at their jobs. There is nightly entertainment, cultural & music, all were enjoyable and like the hotel staff, they really appeared to be happy to be a part of the Halekulani. If you are looking for a relaxing hotel for a couple, or a more adult hotel, close to all Waikiki has to offer, without a doubt the Halekulani should be your number one choice. We extended our stay and will be back!

Its been a life long dream to stay here. I remember coming to the Halekulani starting in the 1970's. Struggling students without the means of being able to stay. We did take dinner at Orchids and continued to do so through time. Now being older and established and with kids and grandkids in tow, we stayed at the Halekulani and we were not disappointed. My offspring loved it and they said they are now spoiled and a new bar has been set with the Halekulani. Our rooms overlooked Diamond Head, the staff friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is wonderfully located and knowing we would return to peace and quiet was reassuring. The Halekulani is now our fav place to stay in Waikiki.
