Paradise

Erin M (Manitowoc, Wisconsin) on Jan 30, 2023

Loved our stay here. The hotel is very pretty. Rooms are big and the bed is super comfy. Great smelling shampoos. Loved the rocking chairs facing the water. Wish all the rooms had a sit down balcony. The only complaint I had was they need a much bigger pool.

Pleasant Stay with Friendly Staff

Karen H (Collegeville) on Jan 25, 2023

Reading the reviews from December had me slightly panicked about our reservation and what to expect from the hotel. When you are spending a lot of money to travel from the east coast of the US to Hawaii this isn’t a small concern. Here is what we experienced. We arrived late on a Sunday night with one family ahead of us at check in. Check in was not a speedy process, not entirely sure why to be honest but the man checking us in was pleasant and our luggage was already handed off to a bellman so at least it was just ourselves standing in line and not us with a bunch of our stuff. Anyway, you get wristbands that activate the doors to your rooms and if you are in the Mailani Tower it also accesses that area and it’s elevators. One point on the wristbands, we had two rooms and each room required one new wristband because it wouldn’t work. Once that was sorted out the bands were fine the rest of the trip. The lobby, shops/hallways and grounds are beautiful. The signature scent of the hotel is wafting about and can be purchased in a store called Accents on property. Have to say i got both the reed diffuser and the room spray, bringing a little bit of vacation home with me. We ate at the Surf Lanai restaurant twice for breakfast and both the Avocado/Tomato and the Short Rib Benedicts were delicious. That said, the menu is crazy expensive, with most menu items averaging $32. Also did the pool food/drink service which starts at 11am with food from the same restaurant and it was decent. Had a good Poke Bowl for lunch and my husband and I split the Cheese platter which was also good, although again pricey. That said, we came on vacation knowing full well this wasn’t going to be cheap. We did walk to the local Denny’s one morning for breakfast, which honestly was not bad and a nice quick option near the hotel. The rooms are where most people seem to complain and to be 100% honest I understand. If the hotel is listed as premium your mind goes to a certain level of expectation. These rooms are VERY average. Our bed was comfortable, we had a lounge chair in the one corner which was nice for one person, but the other person had to sit on the bed. Our balcony had a couch and a small table which was nice and a spectacular view of the ocean, pool area and Diamond head. That is what you’re paying for, at least in the tower rooms, the view. Everything within those rooms is fairly dated, the bathrooms could use a refresh. The robes and slipper they provide are nice (and if you want your own pink striped rob they are for sale in the shop for $158). Room service has been suspended so that is another touch I think people may be expecting at a premium resort hotel. I could knock off a star for this, but I knew this going in from the other reviews. The rooms were also really clean and the housekeeping staff was very good at keeping us tidy and stocked with water. Everyone we encountered who worked there were super nice and friendly and really made our experience great. They all get 5 stars all on their own. So again, this is not the cheapest hotel to stay at, but it’s also not the most expensive and it is located in a great spot of Honolulu. You can share some of the amenities with the Sheraton next door and you are steps away from some great city shopping and dining. For those reasons I can recommend a stay here.
