  • When will they do anything about this, seems like every month someone drowns there, this appears to have been going on for years! How many lawsuits (I am sure they have been filed) will it apparently take to get the hotel to address this issue more? Seems that a lot of the people who drown there are older Wakiki hotel guests and are at risk of heart attacks or don’t swim well to begin with, so even more so, multiple lifeguards are needed. It would still be reputation and cost effective given the number of deaths. Maybe they just need to fill it in and make a park out of it.

  • Lagoon is Hilton property. Public life guards are not required. So where are the hotel life guards? that water is stagnant and doesn’t circulate with ocean water. I got ringworm there when I was little. Filthy place should be filled and made into a fabulous swimming pool with bars, masseuse, snack bars and restaurants, evening Hawaiian music entertainment cabarets, etc. Exclusive cabanas for the rich and famous?

    • where have you been, for years the hotel spent millions of dollars to fix the lagoon up. it is very nice the water drains at night and by mourning is refilled by using huge pumps to circulate the water very clean and the whole lagoon is only 3 feet deep maybe 4 feet but that is as deep as it gets. very nice. check it out.
