Editorial review:

The eye of the storm amidst the frenzy of tourist activity around it, this amazing hotel has been rated as the No. 1 hotel in Oahu, and is also perfect for honeymooners. The staff seem to know everyone's name and service to match, there is the gourmet New French oceanside restaurant La Mer, a stunning pool which is like a work of art, and you can end your day on a romantic note by listening at Hawaian music at the House Without a Key.

                      • Beautiful view of the sea, enjoys the best reputation on the island and I strongly agree to this, also, and importantly, the security in and around the hotel is excellent. House without a key has amazing breakfast and the other restaurants are delicious, room decoration might be even too calm. Staff is absolutely kind, the Concierges are wonderful and can really make your visit special, bathroom is spacious and you have all the amenities and nice fluffy towels. Outdoor spa facilities face pool.

                        Quite in the very busy waikiki area, the beach is TINY and the decor is cheap and the food is awful.

                      • The private beach area is very small and all the best Honolulu can offer You. Staff are brilliant and can't do enough for you.

                        This hotel is not fantastic because of its rooms.

                      • The location is fantastic and right in the middle of the beach and shopping areas, Halekulani stands on the best part of Waikiki, peaceful and the staff is very service oriented.

                      • Again as per the previous review, the location of the Halekulani is perfect and the hotel is really well placed to enjoy all the sights. The staff is attentive, the rooms are fantastic and the pool is in the shadows in the early part of the day and was a little chilly.

                      • The room was beautiful and the view was spectacular, the entire atmosphere of the hotel was extremely romantic, the staff were exceptionally friendly and genuine. The bathroom was also very nice.

                        Pool was not very big at all.

                        Pool has not changed in over twenty years.

                        Pool attendants, as a previous poster noted, are rude.

                        Bad service and the food was French and very good, very expensive.

                        Service and spa treatment could not be better, the lanai in the room we had is not particularly private.

                        For the price, this hotel was way overpriced and at high tide, there's almost no beach left at all.

Probably the nicest hotel i have ever stayed at, and worth every penny, customer service is outstanding and staff were polite and gracious, the bathrooms are elegant and clean, as are the rooms themselves. The pool is very large.

                        A busy and crowded oasis in a sea of waikiki insanity, bad food, gym equipment laughably old and poor.
