Warning, this is a long review but I hope to cover all of the major points :) We were booked in the Lagoon Tower but were "upgraded" to the Waikikian City View 1 bedroom suite. While suspicious about the "upgrade" we rolled with it (OK so they "sold" it to me by noting it had in-room laundry...kids, family, yes this...

The Hilton Hawaiian Village is big, busy, brash and perfect for a family with small kids. We stayed at the Grand Waikikian which really exceeded our expectations, since the service was fantastic. It was one of the hotels for a conference I was attending at the Hnl convention centre, and it booked up very quickly. We managed to book a...

Very large resort complex which was much too crowded and noisy for us, a retired professional couple. We found no peaceful areas on property. Our one-bedroom unit with partial ocean view overlooked a busy main thoroughfare and other high rises; I was unable to see any ocean.

Aloha and mahalo (thank you) for your review. We are disheartened to read your stay with us was a disappointment. Our resort can sometimes be overwhelming because of its size and the number of guests we have on site at any given time. The resort runs very high occupancy throughout the year so it can appear to be crowded at...

As HGVC owners, we had previously stayed at the Lagoon tower. It was noisy, old, and huge issues with the elevators. Never again will we stay there. So we splurged on our points and upgraded to the Grand Waikikian. It was a great decision as we loved it! It was much less busy, and much cleaner than the lagoon tower....

We spent 2 weeks at this resort and the experience was wonderful. The club staff, room, and amenities were superb. We took advantage of the concierge and she helped us book tours that were appropriate for us. We would stay here again on our next visit to Hawaii.

This Resort has to be one of our favourite resorts. The staff are always so helpful, friendly and accommodating. The convenience of the Village facilities make our vacation so enjoyable. Our apartment is always fitted out with everything that is needed. We love to return each year for our family vacation.
