Beautiful hotel with friendly service

Such a pretty setting. Rooms were great- ample space and very clean and perfectly configured. It was wonderful to have a balcony facing the ocean. The hotel provided a lovely holiday token on the pillow every night with a note - very welcoming touch. Food was great. Service was good too. Other than having to scramble to get beach/pool chairs everyday - the pool setting and poolside service was fabulous. The location of the hotel is great. We would definitely go back there.

The Halekulani Hotel is one of the best. They attended to all of our needs and answered all of our questions. The service is top rate and the food was spectacular. Their location on Waikiki beach is seculed yet walking distance to all of the high end shopping. The hotel is owned by a Japanese company, so expect a lot of Japanese tourists.

My husband and I have been going to the Halekulani for years. I cannot say enough about the staff. We have seen the same employees for years and they welcome you back as if you were family. The location is perfect. The food is excellent. It is our favorite place in the world. Need I say more. It truly is understated elegance.

One of the best resorts in Honolulu


Reviewed on: 10 Aug 2017

Great accomodations to begin our vacation to Hawaii. We are a family of six with 4 teenagers. Our adjoining rooms with balconies provided plenty of space for all. We had the best view of the pool and ocean! The overall service is at the top of our list of the resorts we have visited. Our kids were amazed and one said, "I think they have been by 3 times today to tidy up - so awesome!" The food was great. A bit $$$$. The location is ideal for experiencing Waikiki Beach. The beach situation in front of the resort is the only drawback. But our teenagers made it work. The pool does close around 7 PM - that was too bad and the poolside service was not as good as other resorts we have visited. But again it was a great first stop experience on our vacation.
