Honolulu >Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
Hilton Hawaiian Village -Kalia Tower. We stayed in a 1 bedroom ocean front suite and couldnt have been more pleased with the room. The staff were helpful and always willing to do anything and everything to make things more pleasant and easier on us. The shops, though some were expensive, had alot of interesting items and had about everything you would need. We didnt eat here much ,so cant really say alot about the dining prices, but Round Table Pizza was the best pizza ever, and the ice cream shop was Heaven!! There is so much to see and do on the property that we could have spent the whole 2 weeks just looking around at the hotel! If you're up early enough the beach is almost completely empty and the temp. is low. We spent our mornings and evenings alone walking on the beach. We couldn't have chosen a more wonderful place to stay.
Disappointing Experience. Very disappointing experience. We were so excited to finally stay at a Hilton hotel and we had saved for almost 2 years for this trip. The property is beautiful, well maintained and practically a shopping destination itself. However, every single amenity was at an added cost. These were outrageously expensive! From dinner in the restaurants to water in the room. The concierge and bellmen were helpful and friendly. The rest of the staff was not (we seemed to be in their way as if they had something better to do). The friendly inviting people of Hawaii made us feel welcome once we left the Hilton Village. It is a shame the Hilton doesn't incorporate a bit of this Aloha feeling.
A great place if you choose Honolulu.. While there are a lot of better places to be in Hawaii than Honolulu, if you're going to be in Honolulu, then the Hilton Hawaiian Village is a great choice. As long as you're on the grounds, you feel like you're in a resort paradise. Yes -- pretty crowded with buildings; NOT a natural resort. But if you want good food, lots of pools, the beach, shopping, massage, and nice rooms, this is a great pick. The kids will have a great time too. And the submarine ride just off the beach is fun. Nothing much to see while Snorkeling on Waikiki (a "dead reef") -- you'll have to drive 45 minutes to Hanauma(?) Bay for that.
