We booked the Aqua Palms on line, knowing it was an affordable hotel. We were pleased with the reception staff as they were always friendly and helpful. We had free wifi which was great. The couch in the room was older and the cushions needed replacing but we put pillows to help. The balcony was good, as was having a... More

As a young solo female traveller, I spent a long time trying to find a balance between location and price when planning my Hawaiian vacation. Aqua Palms Waikiki did not let me down in either of those. The location was great, I felt super safe and secure slightly away from Waikiki beach. Having bus stops mere steps away from the... More

Very comfortable hotel. My family and I stayed there for a week and the one complaint we had was the "tourist" prices at the IHOP downstairs. The Hotel "key" gives you a 10% discount when you go to IHOP downstairs-great idea! So here are the PROS: Price Location Workers attitude and friendliness-Lester, the bellhop was awesome and friendly. Balcony facing... More

We were here for a week and all in all it was fine. It isn't as fancy as the Hilton across the street, but it is clean and a lot less expensive. They have laundry facilities. We got a queen room which has more room than a king room and the queen room has a half tub (good if you... More

We spent several nights at the Aqua Palms at the end of June. We found the hotel comfortable and clean ( except for the sofa, which we just avoided). The bed was very nice and firm (not hard), and we never heard any noise at night. We awoke early each morning to enjoy coffee on our balcony which had a... More

Rooms need updated. Is a few blocks from the beach. The pool is tiny an the tall buildings block the sun for part of the day. Ala Moana Blvd is a very busy street.

We stayed 1 night pre-cruise. The staff was very accommodating. They held our luggage prior to check-in and again post check-out while we were touring Hawaii. They were very knowledgeable about the area and gave helpful suggestions and advise when asked. They arranged our taxi to the pier which was at a reasonable price.

We picked this hotel because we were only going to be in Honolulu for two days before taking a cruise, and we had packed those two days with activities on Oahu. Since we weren't going to be in the room that much, and since we were going to be on a cruise the following week, we didn't really care if... More
