    Great resort!

    This place is huge! Thankfully a map is provided at check in! We stayed in the Kahali Tower which was set back from the beach, but an easy stroll through loads of shopping! The beds were so incredibly comfy, the bathroom amenities were lovely and also for sale at a local shop. Many choices for eateries as well as pool and swimming options! We only stayed one night before our cruise on a Friday which is the night there is a fireworks display! Enjoy your stay!

    Gorgeous ocean and Volcano view

    We got upgraded to the ocean view on 8th floor at the Rainbow Tower. The view was magnificent! The breakfast at the Tropical Restaurant was always delicious and also had great view and a nice breeze so it wasn’t too hot. The hotel parking is $45 per night so to avoid this crazy price we parked at the marina behind hotel where you pay $1 per 1 hour and can stay there as much as you want. The location of the hotel is good, not too far from (overcrowded and loud) Waikiki beach and in good distance to get to the main road when you want to drive around to get to know the island.

    Beware of check in and check out up billing

    Upon arrival the reception told me I would be in the Kalia Tower city view. But for an additional $130 a night I can get an ocean view in a different tower and then can watch the fireworks. The problem here is that I booked an ocean view room originally and I was leaving on Friday so I would not see any fireworks. I had to pull up my HH app and reservation that showed I already had a ocean view reservation and show the receptionist. . Then the receptionist said well I can get you a different room for $80 extra with a better view. I said no, I just wanted the original reservation agreement. She seemed put out. Then on check out I used express check out and placed my keys and all the cards (room, towel, DVD) in the envelop and put in the box. 2 days later I get a $20 charge (for towel cards) I had to call the billing department and say I used the express checkout as directed and the cards were left. The charges were ultimately reversed. Overall, I felt that all these fees and upgrades were just a scam and a way to pad the bill. I felt Hilton was dishonest and manipulative. I have stayed here in the past and always felt the check in process was somewhat sketchy. But this stay was over the top bad. I don't think I will stay again.

    That view though! 😍

    The view from the room in the Rainbow Tower was to die for. I didn’t even have to go out on the balcony. I was able to watch the sunrise and enjoy the sound of the waves in the morning when I opened the door before I went to work. 🥰

    Bed bugs!!!!! Avoid this resort at all costs

    Came here with company for business purposes. Lived in Tapa tower room 641. Furnitures are old and need an upgrade. For the price tag of over $200 a night. Its a disappointment. Woke up finding bed bug bites made a mediocre stay even worse. Now i have to deal with the itch and potentially permanent scars. And also sanitizing all my belongings. Please clean the rooms and exterminate all bugs. I did not pay to expect and experience like this.
