On the plus side: we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite that was clean and quite large and had two tv's, a comfortable bed, a... More

Included in the $15 daily hospitality fee, is unlimited beach towels you can pick up at the front desk. You can also borrow dvds and PS3 games to view... More

As a base camp the location,friendliness and no frills value Aqua Aloha Surf worked beautifully for our winter getaway. Definitely recommend upgrade to larger room for $10-$20/day and higher floors get a great view. Honolulu's oldest grocery is next door...a little noisy, but very convenient. Staff excellent, breakfast predictable, pool small and cold, but super deal for the money especially... More
