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 on the beach on Fridays.

The beach is very nice and there are a lot of places to choose from to eat and shop (expect to pay TOP dollar at both). Expect long lines for practically everything you do there, even catching an elevator. They want $50 a day to park your car, there's FREE parking next door at the marina.

The beach is very nice and there are a lot of places to choose from to eat and shop (expect to pay TOP dollar at both). Expect long lines for practically everything you do there, even catching an elevator. They want $50 a day to park your car, there's FREE parking next door at the marina. They don't clean your room every day and provide fresh towels and bed linens unless you request it (and I paid over $600 a night for my stay) and then they do it the next day. The New York Deli (on site) was delicious, we ate there several times. They also have a Lapperts Ice Cream on site and they're probably the most reasonably priced offering in the whole place, their ice cream and drinks (including wonderful Kona coffee) were delicious. Once last thing: if you book the Atlantis submarine (also on site) put MILITARY in the promo code box when you book it online and you get it for 1/2 PRICE! They never asked me for military ID when I boarded (which I had). We had a great time there but I would never return. $4300 for 7 days (ocean view, 2 queen beds, 31st floor) is a bit much for me. Enjoy! Read less

I am currently at the hotel and decided to post my review now to help other people. In the week before I checked in there were several bad reviews about dirty rooms and long waits. I am disabled from an auto-immune disorder so was getting apprehensive about my stay. I am glad I did not cancel because we are having a wonderful time. From the moment we got here I have enjoyed this resort and I am very picky. William greeted our taxi and welcomed us to the resort. He set a positive tone from the start. We are staying in the A’ali tower which I highly recommend. I did not wait to check in to my room. Wayne helped with our bags and he was lovely. He gave us directions and oriented us to the hotel. Every person we have interacted with has been kind and helpful. The customer service has been great. We have an ocean view room and it is perfect. It is clean and as expected. Housekeeping only comes if you request them due to COViD but you can request them to come daily. They do a great job and workaround my schedule. The main pool is busy but there was plenty of room for us to swim. I had no problems with getting towels. Chairs are hard to find in the middle of the afternoon but easy to grab in the morning and evening. The A’ali tower has a private pool too that is less crowded. I highly recommend the A’ali tower. I have not waited more than 2 minutes for an elevator. This is a busy resort so there are lines for food. If you eat dinner at 5pm if is not bad but otherwise you will wait 45-60 minutes. We expected that. There is room service but it is very limited. That was fine for me. Most restaurants on-site have take-out. There are a lot of places to eat off-site as they door dash. You just have to meet the driver at the lobby. The food court at the Ala Moana mall is the best I have seen and the shopping is excellent. It is an outdoor mall so it is warm but the stores and food court are cool. In short, we are delighted with our choice to stay here. Don't let the bad reviews worry you. It has been a lovely stay.

Old hotel, needs updating. WiFi very sketchy. Had trouble finding water, vending machines were out and ABC store closed by 11 pm. No where to go for a drink after 11 pm either. Would not recommend staying in this hotel.

Very nice hotel and location to beach. Wish there were more options for food. It seemed to lack in this area. For such a large property could of had several Starbucks. Investment into laundry rooms would be great. Parking was pretty easy. Employees seemed friendly.
