You just can't goo wrong with this hotel.. We have stayed here twice.. And love it !! The staff goes above and beyond to help. Close to the beach, affordable, comfortable, clean, friendly, continental breakfast. The parking was affordable. Even provide towels for the beach. We can't wait for our next stay at the Aqua Aloha surf.

We stayed at the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki this past weekend after surfing around the net for places to stay for the night. We spoke with Amanda via phone inquiring about pricing and hotel options. She represented several different hotels in Waikiki and gave her suggestion to stay here...and we couldn't be more glad :) Check in was a breeze,... More

Not luxurious. Place to rest your head at a better price compared to other hotels. Good location. Free drinks in the lobby on Tuesday afternoons. I wouldn't have the free breakfast though. Gross! ABC store at the corner. Starbucks 5-10 minute walk west on Kuhio Ave. Only about a 10 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. Close to all amenities. Extremely... More

After much internet searching about hotels in the Waikiki area, this hotel came up as best value and had rooms available. Our criteria were: pool, breakfast and WiFi + reasonable distance to the beach/centre. All hotels in this area are expensive, so we had to accept that, and we paid about $850 dollars for 6 nights. Breakfast was strictly limited... More

Perfect location and great value for the price. Close to surfing and shopping. The room was a bit small but clean and tidy. Loved the fact that you can walk right out of the hotel and down the street to anything you might want to see and do!

I must say we were disappointed with our first and only night here, the room was high up but near the lift so we were woken early with this noise behind us.

This hotel was great! Great location and an affordable price. It was basic and clean. The bed was super comfortable – so that makes me happy. The room itself was small – but enough room for two people. There was a TV and a fridge and all expected toiletries. The windows where those “slat-type” windows that you find all over... More
