Why do people rave about this hotel? It was truly awful. I had booked for 10 nights at the Aqua Palms after reading all the great reviews from other travellers. As our flight was arriving at around 7am I had booked for the previous night so we could check into the room on arrival. I emailed the reservations department directly... More

My wife and I enjoyed ourselves completely at Aqua Palms. We especially appreciated the personnel. People like congenial Mark and Roberto, the concierge, helped make our stay a memorable one. We stayed in a very clean room overlooking the city and relaxed on the deck morning and evening. We loved the poolside continental breakfast every morning. The view from the... More

We stayed here the first night in Honolulu while waiting for our regular hotel reservation and I was looking forward to the hotel because of the rating it received on Trip Advisor. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice but didn't really offer a lot in the way of information when asked. The parking garage at this hotel... More

Stayed at Aqua Palms 18 months ago and were excited to return for 9 nights. It is a great location - Ala Moana Shopping Center, Convention Center, Waikiki Beach, Waikiki shops, restaurants, Hilton Hawaiian Village - we walked to everything, even Wal Mart, but bus stops are closeby. Room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed - king... More

My wife and I were very excited to stay at the Aqua Palms after reading all of the wonderful reviews on this site. I'm not sure what everyone is so excited about. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm and were told that our room was not ready. The guy working at the front desk seemed to have an... More

Stayed overnight awaiting for my flight to Maui. It was ok, the rooms are dated, the bed was lumpy, but it was clean. I paid 140us and that included a continental breakfast that was served by the somewhat small pool. Its close to everything though, if you need a place to store your things and venture out this could be... More

Excellent hotel, we stayed here for a week, and couldnt have picked a better hotel. The rooms, service and staff were 5 star! We booked this from a united site and cost us about $175 a night for a Diamond head view. For my girlfriends birthday they even gave her a box of chocolates. The beach is across the street,... More

Great stay at the Aqua Palms. We tried to check in around noon on our day of arrival, but were told our room wouldn't be ready until 3pm. We were greeted by Mark, and told we could store our bags until our room was ready. After a quick change into warm weather gear, we headed out to take in the... More
