My son and I stayed at the Aqua Palms because of its great location. Just a short walk from the beach by the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the marina, the Aqua Palms provided very clean if not spacious ocean-view accommodations. The room was bright and cheery with Hawaiian-style decor. It had a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, so it... More

We were very pleased with everything about our stay. The staff was very friendly and exhibited the spirit of aloha; the room was clean and the price was reasonable for Waikiki. The location is excellent and so close to our conference. We loved having IHOP next door for so many good meals. We felt very blessed to stay in this... More

We just stayed here for our stay over the New Year. It was a special stay and the little touches they did made it even more special... room on the PH floor, chocolates and Bottle of wine. Excellent Wifi coverage and the room was always cleaned by the friendly staff. Great location, not far to the beaches, or the other... More

We stayed for 6 nights 2 kids 2 adults, wonderful staff, perfectly located to shopping centre, lagoon and short walk to the main drag! Staff were wonderful and helpful, small extra touches like chocolates on arrival and a lovely Christmas card and bauble from staff left in our room. Great price for this hidden gem!

This hotel is very close to the Waikiki beach and is all around a decent hotel. First of all I found the hotel staff to be top quality. The room was spacious, had all the amenities to keep you comfortable, there was a large parking lot, and the $15 fee included Waikiki shuttle, Wi-Fi, and may be the airport shuttle.... More

This was a good choice as we were not looking for a "luxury" hotel. but one that was serviceable, clean, close to the beach and restaurants without being "oceanfront expensive." Yes on all counts. Staff was VERY friendly and they gave us local insider info about places to eat that offered "really authentic" Hawaiian food, prepared by local families for... More

I would probably give this hotel a better rating (I would have rated it very good or perfect on my previous trips, I've stayed here several times) because it is really a nice, clean hotel in a good location. But, I do have a couple of issues with them. First, on a recent trip I requested a crib be in... More

Aloha Micronesianmission: Mahalo for taking the time to share your recent stay at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the delay in getting the crib to your room.

We stayed here for 11 days at Christmastime.

The hotel itself is quite nice. Rooms are one third of what the Hilton across the street charges. The staff is very nice and attentive to their guests' needs. Parking ($25/day) is reasonable for the area. The hotel offers free WIFI, which is a big plus. Now the negatives: Noisy room. I paid extra to get the Diamond Head view,... More

The room was very nice and the people also nice. But they hit you with extra charges after you have booked and paid for the room and also hold your deposit for a long time. I will look elsewhere next time I stay in Waikiki.
