It's location was accessible to restaurants, ABC and other convenience shops. A shuttle bus is available to take you to major shopping centers and runs every 1/2 hour. The room was clean and respectable for the hotels age. The staff were accommodating and friendly and were willing to point us in the direction of the non tourist areas and shops... More

The Aqua Palms hotel feels a little dated as one walks down the hallways towards one’s room, as if things have not been updated since the late-1980s or early-1990s. That being said, the rooms are clean, albeit on the small side – more European-sized than American-sized. Your odds of getting a room with a balcony are two in three (for... More

Where do I begin, stayed here for 3 nights June 20 - 23 before going on NCL cruise of the Islands. First thing I noticed when we walked up to the check in desk was how old and dirty the rugs were in the lobby. Then we are told that there is a $15 services fee for the free water,... More

Stayed here for 9 nights in April. Hotel was in a great location at the end of Waikiki Beach within walking distance via the Hilton Village to the beach. Tram stop outside. Plenty of ABC shops around and a 7 Eleven at the back. Room was spacious. We didn't get the full balcony but had a sea view and a... More

Staff friendly, room clean & tidy. Fridge/microwave included in room, but we only used the fridge to keep drinks etc cold. View of Diamond Head and balcony, which overlooked the main road, but no issue as out and about all day. I-Hop next door which is useful if you want breakfast without going too far. Access to beach via Hilton... More

The pictures are deceiving. The room did not look like the one advertised, and breakfast was not served at IHOP, but at another place nearby. Staff: okay, not going out of their way to be friendly Room cleanliness: do not look for details (corners, under the bed) as you might be disappointed. Bathroom: small, but acceptable. All in all, if... More

My wife and I needed a hotel for one night before flying back to Sydney- we chose Aqua Palms and have to say that for a one night stay it was OK. Good location and clean and tidy. It was a little tired in places but served our purpose. The room was spacious enough and the bed comfortable. The decor... More

We read many reviews before choosing this hotel. Looks like we picked a winner! Friendly staff, good accommodations. We stayed on the 5th floor facing Diamond Head. We were also able to see the beach from the room. Traffic was noisy but the hotel provides an alarm clock with nature sounds you can play as you sleep to alleviate that... More

I was a solo traveler in November 2014. It had everything I needed, very comfortable and safe. Great location as a way to be just off the beach but still close to everything you need. Overall it's nothing remarkable but it has everything you need at a reasonable rate.
