Spacious room not far from everything

Other than a missing shower curtain, everything in the room was in tip top shape. Large spacious room with a separate kitchenette with microwave, fridge & bench space. I rather the bathroom was bigger & absorbed/reduce the kitchenette space. Short walk to either Ala Moana shopping centre or Waikiki luxury shops

Great start to holiday

Loved staying here. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were early for check in but they had a room ready which was fabulous. We were really tired and were able to rest. Loved this end of Waikiki as it is quieter and the beach is nicer.

Good trip away from home!

The room was very nice and clean. Staff service was excellent. Centrally located to malls and restaurant. We could see the fireworks from our balcony. The only complaint I would have is the parking. Garage is very small and the parking spaces are even smaller. But the quality of the room and staff service made up for it. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Brilliant Waikiki Getaway

Great location, close to all amenities, very polite and helpful staff. Clean rooms. The hsopitality transportation was simply great. My only complaint may be provision of cutlery, tea and sugar and very nosiy exhaust fan in bathroom. Shower was not hot. All in all I had a wonderful stay and I would give it an excellent rating for the price.

Just ok

For the price I would have expected that they could have made an effort to find me a power adaptor for a UK plug instead of telling me there was a store not far away that sold them. The US$ 15 per day leisure facilities charge included cold water in the lobby at all times, wow! Or a shuttle bus that only stops at other Aqua hotels and takes ages so you can walk faster. Pool ok but gym VERY small. Wifi excellent, best feature of the hotel.Location ok although a good 20 min walk to the beach. Bed seemed to be not level and you rolled towards one side

Fabulous family hotel - great value for money

We were really impressed with the Aqua Palms Waikiki. I had struggled to get a hotel with 2 x Queen beds (for us and our 2 kids aged 15 and 8) and that also had a pool on the premises, but I hit the jackpot. The pool was small but it was great to cool off in, and this hotel is has easy beach access through the Hilton Village, was close to all the tour bus and trolley stops, a short walk to the Ala Moana shopping centre, and has a concierge on site to help with tour bookings, and to give advice on how to access the public transport. The rooms were fairly roomy and very clean, but the best part was the staff. They were all very friendly, kind and fun to talk to. I was sad to leave! This is a perfect spot to be on Waikiki but kind of on the edges, rather than in the midst of all the commercialism! Highly recommended.

Great stay!

Very good location surrounded by nice cafe and restaurants. Hotel located right opposite Hilton Hawaiian Village. Room always clean and made up with fresh towels whenever we returned back after our day trips. I requested a higher room location to avoid the street noise. We got 9th floor but still could hear the street noise. I would suggest to update the rooms with sound proof insulation. Would certainly give 5 stars for room comfort if it's done :) There are fireworks every Friday night organised by Hilton. We followed the crowd walking through Hilton across the street. Amazing fireworks. Ala Moana Shopping Centre is only 10 minutes walk or take pink trolley that picks up right in front of hotel. Make sure you keep $2 per person for trolley rides as they don't keep change. I would suggest to make a trip to Waikele outlet for a great shopping experience. Ask the concierge for booking. Show your hotel access card and get 10% off at IHop restaurant next door. Mahalo to all staff for our making our stay a great one and we will definitely come back next year.

15 nights at Aqua Palms

Whe we eventually got a decent room our stay was easy and in a great location.15 min walk to the Ala MoanaShopping Centre; 5-10 mins to the beach and same for Waikike main strip. Avoid Wild Buffolo Wings and Wailana Coffee House and you'll be OK - thy the Japnese Restaurant opposite, not the steak house, to the right down some stairs - wonderful find!

Very comfy beds

I think overall this hotel was a good value. It's not a beach front property ,but you can still see the ocean from the room balcony. The room itself was very clean and the beds oh so comfy. I didn't like that they charge $25 a day to park in their parking structure. Which I also didn't like how narrow the structure was. It was difficult to maneuver, and the entrance was way to steep. you can see chips on the concrete posts where people have scraped or bumped into the posts with their cars. They do have free wi-fi, that was a plus I was able to u upload pictures here and there to facebook, and share with friends.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

No need to rent a car for entire stay on oahu. Save yourself $50, in parking and rental car fees + gas. While in waikiki, take the trolleys to go a few historical sites and shopping.
