Virgin rating

The hotel

Pure paradise if you’re heading to Hawaii for its beaches, Alohilani boasts contemporary design and is steps from Waikiki Beach’s exclusive ‘Kuhio’ stretch. You can be snorkelling, surfing or swimming just moments after you arrive. If that’s not enough water, Alohilani Resort’s 280,000 gallon Oceanarium is filled with Hawaiian reef fishes, creating a soothing setting for drinks at O Bar and island breakfasts at Lychee. And, if your aquatic thirst still isn’t quenched, the fifth floor pool deck’s an impeccably chic setting, with its infinity pool, paddling pool, bar, overstuffed teak loungers, driftwood sculptures, and ocean views. You could even splash out on a cabana or water lounger. By night, it’s a magical space with lanterns, fire pits, and live music, ideal after dining in one of its two restaurants led by world-famous ‘Iron Chef’ Masaharu Morimoto.

Image of the Tripadvisor rating Computer system is down. We were sent to another property that’s not as nice.

The whole computer system was down when we arrived at the hotel. The Alohilani sent us to the Twin Fin. The property is not as nice. Apparently the computer system at the Alohilani has been down for three days. I’m incredibly disappointed to have been sent to a lesser property.

Apparently the computer system at the Alohilani has been down for three days. I’m incredibly disappointed to have been sent to a lesser property. Now I’m going to have to spend the better part of my trip fighting with the credit card company to get my prepaid stay reimbursed. This is unacceptable beyond reason. The very least the Alohilani could have done was to put us up at a comperababule property. Read less

This hotel is amazing - in the best location. Staff were friendly, food perfect and very, very clean. Highly recommend this hotel. Directly overlooking Waikiki beach, close to all shops, restaurants. Our first visit to Hawaii and we were not disappointed - we will be back!

Micah and William were the BEST at the longboard Club. They made my whole experience amazing and relaxing. I will come back again for the exceptional service. Micah would make fruit and cheese plates every night and always refill the wine!! The pasta that William made was phenomenal.

We booked this hotel months ago, and were extremely excited for this experience. Upon checking in, we were assigned the closest room to the outdoor pool, that has blasting music from 8am-midnight.

We booked this hotel months ago, and were extremely excited for this experience. Upon checking in, we were assigned the closest room to the outdoor pool, that has blasting music from 8am-midnight. For a “relaxing vacation” this is not it. I asked the front desk if a room change was available, and I was told I could not change my room as the hotel was “full but you can try again tomorrow to see if anything has changed”. Upon looking at the booking website, it does indicate that rooms are still available. It is extremely difficult to relax when music is blasting 10 feet from our room at nearly all times of the day and night. For the cost of this hotel, I would not recommend. Read less
