4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 5 nights in July. The room was a little outdated and could use a makeover but it had everything I needed in it and the bed was super comfortable. The hotel is behind the Hilton Hawaiian village and walking distance away from Ala Moana shopping centre. It is easy to get the Waikiki trolley around which picks... More

disclosure: We were placed here for 2 nights due to a problem at our original hotel so we weren't initially in the aloha spirit. The staff was very friendly and understanding but we ended up in a room without a water view or amenities of original hotel... but the room had comfy beds, flat-screen tv, a mini-fridge/microwave so the basics...

We stayed at Aqua Palms for 4 nights and 5 days. Great location next to Waikiki beach. However, we lost our GPS and iPod from our car when it was parked in the hotel's "secure" parking garage. In spite of paying a daily fee to park in this garage, it ended up not being very secure. The staff apparently looked... More

Nothing special but the hotel is all you need as you are in Hawaii and not spending time in your room anyway! You are a several minute walk to the Hale Koa and the Hilton AND the beach. The Expedia concierge is excellent as we booked a few tours and etc through her.

This was a our third time in seven years at this hotel and it hasn't changed at all, which is bad. We like the location outside of Waikiki, easier to get in and out of without the crazy traffic. They have a lot of on site parking. The rates have always been middle to low end. The problem is the... More

We travelled as a party of 5 - 4 adults and 1 child (2). The hotel, while not brand new, was clean and tidy, and the staff were always very helpful when needed. The pool was small, but who needs a big one when the beach is on your doorstep? The hotel is within walking distance of the lagoon at... More
