Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Its a good hotel but theres a surprise fee when you check in. We stayed there for 4 nights and had to pay Hundred and twenty seven bucks for amenities. I travel alott and amenities are always included in hotels like wifi towels dvd rentals but this is the first hotel which charged us. And they said theres no room service, we collect it ourselfs downstairs so there shouldnt be that fee when room service is not even included.

Aloha Nebilmamur: Mahalo for sharing your recent experience at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. Glad to hear that you feel we are a good hotel. I'm sorry you were disappointed about the amenity fee charge. Amenity fees are charged at almost all properties here in Hawaii and ours is one of the most reasonable. While we aren't providing daily maid service at this time, all of the supplies are available at the front desk for guest to pick up. While disappointed in the fees, we all hope that you enjoyed your stay in Waikiki and will give us another opportunity to regain your valued patronage.

Stayed here recently for a few weeks and enjoyed my stay. The location is centrally located to many restaurants and shops and only blocks away from the beach. The staff was also super helpful during my stay. And overall you can't beat the great pricing! I recommend checking them out!

Note: no daily maid service, towels, and parking isn't guaranteed if though you pre-pay for it. Their excuse for the lack of maid service was "due to covid" and it wasn't disclosed at the time of booking. Also, note that frequently at night you'll be woken by the sounds of loud vehicular exhaust systems, as well as sirens -- bring earplugs.

Aloha Huntley2022: Mahalo for taking the time to share your recent stay at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. With COVID still having high numbers we do not provide daily maid service for the safety of our guests and our employees. In the travel updates section of our website it does provide information on the type of services that we are currently offering. You are still able to receive all of your necessary supplies at the front desk. During peak occupancies there are occasions when we do run tight on parking. The staff is aware of alternate areas that are available close by that will accommodate any overflow. Unfortunately, due to the property location on Ala Moana Blvd., there is some traffic noise from being in the city. We apologize for any inconvenience you encountered during your stay. All of the staff and management hope you were still able to enjoy your time in Waikiki and will give us another opportunity to regain your valued patronage.

It's definitely not the Sheraton. Would I stay there again? No. Kept reminding myself it was just a place to shower and sleep. You can hear all the noise from the street (even though we were on the 12th floor.) There was water leak / mold stain in the bathroom ceiling. And we were called in our room at 11PM to move our car because we were parked in a stall for residents, which was not made clear at all!

Aloha Kuuipomaka07: Mahalo for taking the time to share your recent experience at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. Unfortunately being right on the Ala Moana Blvd does lend itself to be a busy area with noise from the surrounding traffic. Parking is open to all guests in any unmarked stall. The stall you parked in had a "RESERVED" sign and is for a particular unit/owner, which is why we had to ask you to move your vehicle. I'm disappointed to hear that we did not live up to your expectations and all of the staff and management hope you were able to enjoy your time in Waikiki.

The hotel is pretty close to the beach, which we found less crowded then Waikiki Beach.We had a nice balcony, where we enjoyed morning coffee. We enjoyed partial ocean view, as well the view of a mountain and skyscrapers.

A good stay and a better location, does have some updating to be done still. The only real concern I had was seeing a few bugs in the room, but nowhere else in the hotel itself. Outside or that I had a quiet and good sleep at great place that seems to be on the upside of rebranding and updating. Great location, two blocks off the beach. Everything in downtown is within a brisk walk from your room.

Thank you for the good service. Satisfied overall. The internet and printers were useful for travellers like us. It would be great if we could have been provided with shower gowns and slippers to wear in the room. Also, even though there are 3 elevators, we had to wait 5-10min during busy hours.

Great location, friendly staff, comfortable and clean bed, all at a value for Waikiki. Kamaaina rate is helpful. Loved the generous lanai and views from the 9th floor. ABC store is just around the corner, IHOP on ground floor. Many other restaurants nearby.
