Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Picture a white sand beach surrounded by acres of tropical grounds, with water sports galore and five different pools to cool off in. This is the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Amble over to the huge beachfront Super Pool or if you have kids in tow perhaps the family activity pool will tempt you. With 18 restaurants, cafés and bars, you can dine somewhere different every night too. And we recommend finding a good spot to watch the nightly Hawaiian entertainment and the fireworks on the beach on Fridays.

We booked last minute and were able to get a great rate in the Rainbow Tower with a Diamond Head view. It was stunning! The room looks great on the surface, but it can be quickly discovered that the paint is peeling and there are lots of nicks and scratches on the furniture.

The room looks great on the surface, but it can be quickly discovered that the paint is peeling and there are lots of nicks and scratches on the furniture. It didn't hinder the expereince and all things could be easily addressed/fixed. We only stayed 1 nt due to Covid-19 causing us to fly back to the mainland sooner than anticipated so I hope to go back one day. Read less

Unfortunately I committed my husband and me to visit this property with Hilton’s reduced rate for 5 nights starting March 10 with the requirement that we attend a two hour presentation on their vacation club/timeshare. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was how unhelpful the first person we encountered was. After a 7 hour flight we took Lyft from Kona airport to the main entrance at this property. We asked a lady at an information desk how to get to our room and she directed us to outside. When it wasn’t clear what we should do, asked her again and then she said get on the tram and get off at the 3rd stop. How helpful it would have been to hear that the first time. Next encounter was checking at Ocean Tower where it would have been nice to be offered water or something refreshing. Instead we were given our room number and directed to walk WAY out of our way to get there. We soon discovered a short cut that would have been so appreciated when worn out from the effort to get there! Our room had a nice view but the rooms are dated and not very clean. Cheap towels and linens . We were disappointed to discover the lack of restaurants and how expensive everything was. The coffee shop near us charged $5.00 for a small individual serving of yogurt - the markup being highway robbery. At the Cantina near our room, beer was $8 and any glass of wine was $13 for a small pour. We tried the Italian restaurant, Nui- once was enough! The expensive restaurant, KPC was good but not exceptional quality to match the price. This property is really spread out with walking paths everywhere. They have a tram which wasn’t reliable and didn’t seem to have a regular schedule and sometimes just not running at all. We never got in any pools- the adult pool was ice cold. We attended our obligatory presentation and were there 3 hours instead of 2 and when we were adamant that we wouldn’t be buying into their program, we were treated rudely. We have never been so happy to leave from a vacation and will never visit Hawaii again. There are friendlier beach places more affordable and easier to get to. Read less

I went here with my family. The hotel was pretty good overall and the insides were really clean. The food given was also pretty good. It also has a nice swimming pool which was also clean. I recommend going there!
