JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa - A to Z Inspection

David's Rating - Double Thumbs Up!

The following is David's professional opinion from a recent hotel inspection.




Ambiance-This resort impresses from the minute you walk in. The JW Marriott brand focuses on providing an upscale resort for all ages and I saw honeymooners, families and couples throughout the resort. Upscale but not pretentious. This ranks as one of my favorites on Oahu.

Beach-There are multiple coves making the water perfect for swimming and the beaches were excellent.

Distances- The resort is on the western side of Oahu about 20 minutes from the airport and 35 minutes from Waikiki. You have shops and restaurants all with 10-15 minutes of the resort.

Entertainment on Property -When I was there they had a singer out by the pool in the early evening.

Fitness Area - They have a very nice state of the art fitness center and Spa.

Food- They have seven restaurants at the resort and walking distance to Roys which is very popular.

Getting Around- Most people will want to rent a car on Oahu to take advantage of the many activities the island offers.

Internet Access -There is daily charge for internet access from your room.

Jackets and Ties- Keep them at home! Aloha shirts are the norm.

Kids-I was not expecting this to be family friendly but was wrong. A good mix of families and couples.

Lighting-Well lit at night.

Medical Services-On call medical services.

Negatives- I really can't say anything negative about this resort.

Nightlife- Plenty of nightlife in Waikiki.

Opportunities-Take advantage of the golf at the Ko Olina Golf Club right on the property.

Pool-They have both swimming and lap pools plus an outdoor jacuzzi.

Protection-In room safe.

Recreation-If tennis or golf are your sports, this is the place. You also have jogging trails.

Rooms-Wow, that is all I can say. I had a deluxe Ocean view room and the view was to die for. The rooms are state of the art as far as technology so make sure to ask about the command center or you might have a problem turning off the lights at night.

Shopping-Plenty of shopping in Waikiki.

Spa-Beautiful Spa facility.

Terrain-Very self contained so you do not feel you have to walk a mile to get around.

View-fantastic and you can see some spectacular sunsets.

Weather-Rainy season is December through February with the driest months being June through September.

WOW Factor-The rooms and level of service is stellar.

X-Y-Z-If you want to be away from the crowds of Waikiki yet close to many of the activities and like a 5 star resort, this is the place.
