I have used the Aqua Palms for myself and relatives since it opened. The hotel quality has been superb, staff excellent, maintenance good. It has been a great place to stay and a good value. BUT as Aqua has grown and gobbled up several Waikiki hotels, the mercenary factor has crept in and now, Aqua has become just another greedy... More

This is probably one of Waikiki's hidden gems. Value and Location can't be beat. I've stayed here 3 times now. It is not fancy but it is clean and safe! Food and beaches are all walking distance. Shopping is nearby also.

Stayed here for 6 days. This hotel is in a great location. The staff is fantastic. Our first room was very smelly. The hotel was full so we made the best of it for a couple nights. The straw that broke the camels back was when my husband spilled water in our room. We sopped it up with a towel.... More

This was our first time staying at the Aqua Palms, since our first hotel of choice was unavailable. The most important asset a hotel can have is a great staff, and this hotel would get five circles in that department. Everyone was friendly and helpful - a special shout-out to Mike the bell man for helping us with heavy items... More

The location of this hotel is fairly nice. It’s about a 20 minute walk to the main part of Waikiki and there are multiple restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms are a little small but ok. The balcony for my room only went out about 1 foot so it was basically unusable. One really nice... More

For the money, I don't think you can find a better hotel in Waikiki. I have stayed in the hotel twice and have booked my next stay in October. The rooms are very small, and I imagine that turns most people off, but for all of the other benefits of staying at the Aqua Palms, that's a small price to... More

Having seen the generally good reviews about this hotel we had high hopes-- but these were dashed as soon as we arrived. Outside the hotel was a constant smell of methane/sulphur. Not sure where it came from but it was awful. Inside the hotel, the hallways smelled foul as well-- like musty/moldy carpet. We held out breath as we walked... More

The hotel is ok. Nothing great. I would actually best describe it as "no frills" and almost "bare minimum". While the staff is very friendly and helpful, I won't return. The first room had a sliding door that wouldn't close properly, so it was very loud from the traffic from the back of the building. The front desk quickly gave... More
