When we go to Honolulu for our teams's baseball state tournament every year, we always stay at the Aqua Palms & Spa. It is at a very convenient location where you could just walk to get something to eat and not have to drive. The Staff at the hotel are very friendly and will do anything that they can do...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Rooms are clean and in a fairly decent location, especially if you don't mind walking. We walked to the Ala Moana Mall, to the Hard Rock Cafe, the beach, everywhere! There are bus stops right in front of hotel too. Mike the bell captain was awesome with so much information and attentiveness. Reasonable rates!...

We have started our stay of the wrong foot, but overall experience was quite ok. We have took the Waikiki Express bus to get to hotel, as it stops in front of Aqua Palms, which was a smart move, due to heavy traffic, taxi would have cost as little fortune. Check in went smoothly, we were quite disappointed when entering...

I almost always stay at Marriotts to accumulate rewards points. I was going to stay at the Courtyard Waikiki for $125 a night until I decided to see if there was a cheaper hotel that wasn't a flop house. I saw Aqua's reviews on Tripadvisor and obtained a $80 AAA rate so staying here for 4 nites was $200 cheaper...

We got a standard room with king-sized bed on the eighth floor, and it was more than big enough for the two of us. The hotel is located in a fairly busy part of the city, but we couldn't hear anything from the street level at all with the windows closed. The walls had excellent sound insulation; other than the...

The hotel is very modern and clean. The room was small but with all needed and more. It had a nice new mini-fridge, a microwave, safe, a flat screen tv, and a double glass window to overlook the city.. the rooms next to ours had a balcony. but either one works. The decoration was great, late 80's tropical pink and...

I was only in Honolulu for a couple of days for a specific purpose so I did not want to spend the $200 to $300 a day for a higher tier beach front Waikiki hotel. The tripadvisor reviews were generally positive and at $100 a day (once you add parking fees) it seemed reasonable. First: It is in a very...
