I have been coming to the Halekulani for many years. In fact, I visit the hotel couple of times a year and my recent visit may have been my LAST. I have stayed at many 4 and 5 star resorts/hotels worldwide and the Halekulani in no way compares to other luxury hotels. Unfortunately, I've watched the Halekulani deteriorate over the... More

Halekulani hotel is nice but not a 5 star resort. (I would not bill this as a resort). For the price, this hotel was way overpriced. During our vacation we stayed at the four seasons in Maui for the same price and it was like driving a Ferrari vs a Toyota. What we liked: ->Perfect location. Within walking distance of... More

My family stayed here for a week over Thanksgiving and overall had a favorable impression. The rooms as one of the earlier posts indicates are in need of an upgrade. That would be my chief complaint. Construction going on (including Thanksgiving day) and fitness center is essentially non-existent (relocated due to construction). We had 2 rooms-Diamond Head view which is... More

My husband and I spent six days at The Four Seasons on Maui, and we ended our trip at The Halekulani on Oahu. The Four Seasons was a five star experience, The Halekulani was not. The service was good. We were shown to our room for check in, and the desk clerk was very polite and helpful. Everyone that worked... More

I stayed at the Halekulani during my honeymoon and it was absolutely wonderful. The service was wonderful at the front desk and at the restaurant and pool as well. They even upgrade us to the most amazing room with an amazing view as well. The food and the view at house without a key was really something! The pool scene... More

I stayed at the Halekalani the week of Nov 10th. I am a professional in my late 20's and met my parents for a family trip. We arrived an hour early and we were told our rooms would not be ready until 3:00 PM. Not a problem as it was a beautiful day. I decided to sit by the pool... More

A friend of mine and I had the displeasure of staying and dining at the Halekulani in Oct of 2008. I had read several Trip Advisor reviews raving about the wonderful service and the overall property.

We have stayed at the Halekulani twice. We are planning to go back this year for Thanksgiving for our third time. Both times I have stayed here the trip has been memorable.

My wife & I celebrated our 40 th Anniversary at the Halekulani. We were there for 5 days, having spent a week in Maui before that.

I have had two experiences with this hotel - the first in December, 2000 and the second in May 2007. In 2000 this hotel was the premier hotel on the beach in Waikiki - excellent service and wonderful food.
