HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 February 2017

Great value! I had a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street, and the Aqua Palms was a convenient budget option. We stayed in a city view room with a king sized bed. All the rooms have a lanai, fridge, and microwave. The daily $18 resort fee includes wifi, towels and a Waikiki shuttle (compared to the $35...

We stayed here one night prior to our Island cruise. The check in process went smooth. The hotel was in a good location. The room was of decent size and clean however it had a damp feel. I could feel the moisture in the air. This would be my only complaint for everything else was ok.

We had a partial ocean view room for 6 nights in mid-March. The door to the balcony was off the track when we arrived, but one call to the desk and it was quickly fixed. The furniture and carpet were a bit worn, but all looked clean. The fridge and micro looked new. As others have said, the entrance ramp...

The hotel looks like it is gradually renovating. The bathroom counters are new, bed is comfy (not the pillows, hard and flat) and the light fixtures are modern. However the furniture (desk, closet, night stand, dresser) is dated and a worn. The room, hallway and lobby were clean. The lobby and hallways look like they have been updated. I didn't...

Our travel agent recommended the Aqua Palms Wikiki. After staying there one night, I can’t understand why they made the recommendation but that’s a topic for a different forum. The two good things I could say about this hotel was that the staff was nice and the daily rate was lower than most Wikiki hotels. That said, the facility wasn’t...
