This hotel is a good value for the money. The room was adequate in size and clean. The service staff was very good and always helpful when we needed them. The location - a few blocks from Waikiki Beach -- was also a plus. When I go back to Honolulu I plan to return to this hotel.

This is the perfect little suite to throw a intimate little party with friends. The balcony was romantic and the beds were soft. The interior was funky and had a friendly feel putting everyone in a good mood.. I would definately reccomend this hotel for people looking for a night away from the pressures at home.

This is our second time with Aqua hotels. First time we spent 4 nights in Bamboo, and this time 4 nights in Surf and Spa. Surf and Spa is cheaper than Bamboo, and actually quieter if you get a room at higher floor( 10 and above). We got a ocean view room, which is a plus. The room was clean...
