I booked my reservation at the Aqua Palms and Spa Hotel through the hotels.com web site. When my wife and I arrived, we encountered numerous issues with the hotel, and those issues were: 1. Elevators The two working elevators (the third elevator was under renovation) were slow and the doors quickly closed on people. During our stay, there was one... More

Aloha DrRobC, Thank you for your review of the Aqua Palms & Spa back in January 2009. A whole year has gone by and I would like to update on some of the improvements made on property thanks to the valuable feedback that we receive from travelers such as you. You had mentioned several areas of opportunity for our hotel... More

From the property's website we were quoted the price of $105 per night. I considered this price to be a little on the low side of the median price compared to other properties. Beings we were traveling on a budget this time, I thought this would be a good less expensive option. Once I booked the trip I realized that... More

This is a great hotel for the money. Flat screen tv, coffee maker in every room, and very friendly hotel staff. Also very comfortable bed, and nicely made up. All in all very cozy. Plus a continental breakfast to boot!!

We decided to pop the 2009 differently. My husband and I had a quick decision on going to AQUA PALMS & SPA. I thought it is just a small hotel but when we checked in, the lobby was cozy and we were greeted with beautiful smile. We were given bottle waters, macadamia cookies (the best I ever tasted). When we... More

We booked our rooms via a certain website and locked in an extremely low price( under $60 a night) for our one week stay at Aqua Palms & Spa. With such a price in mind, we didn't expect much. I e-mailed the manager and requested a quiet room on higher floor away from elevator. She answered the e-mails with great... More

This is a small boutique hotel across Ala Moana Blvd from Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki and I stayed for a week in December. I had some reservations because the rate was very good. The web site said they had totally remodeled and I was still a little wary. However, the moment I got to the hotel they made me... More

We have stayed twice at the Aqua Palms Hotel on Ala Moana Boulevard and we have not been disappointed. As a matter of fact, the opposite is true. The attitude of the front desk staff is above average, and Mark, the bellman is wonderful regarding assistance and helping with directions. As I sit in the lobby observing how he helps... More

Our family stayed that the Aqua Palms for 3 nights including Thanksgiving. We had a view of Diamond Head, Hilton Hawaiian Village and some ocean. For $115 a night!!! Couldn't beat the price. Linens were always clean along with cups etc. The hotel staff, especially the front desk were so kind! While my Mom checked us in (a little early... More

I saw another review which stated that house keeping didn't provide clean glasses everyday, and the room was dirty, and management discredited their review. That's a poor management response to a problem. First, I must say that we also didn't receive clean glasses daily, nothing was ever cleaned except that we received fresh linens and the bed was made.

We had originally looked through Trip Advisor reviews and decided to stay at the Aqua Wave Hotel in Waikiki. The reviews looked excellent and we thought that we couldn't miss. Two years ago in August we had stayed at the Aqua Palms, but thought that we might try something different. Upon arriving late at night, we found out the room... More
