This hotel is small and centrally located. It offers breakfast but unless you want pancakes with ham or rice and sweetcakes your choice is limited. The staff are exceedingly helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. If you feel the humidity...dont come in September as the lowest their(or any hotel) aircon goes... More

We had a great time here, close to everything within walking distance. The room was small but had all that we required. The pool was great and when we were there was not very busy. The staff were helpful. The Continental Breakfast was very disappointing, we only tried it once and then preferred to go elsewhere. The Rooms are serviced... More

Finding nice hotels close to the Waikiki strip and beach can be very expensive throughout all times of the year so when you are able to find an affordable option in close proximity to the mains points of interest, its a pleasant find. Aqua Aloha fits the bill; terrific location (which is paramount), clean & spacious rooms, accommodating & friendly... More

We stayed at this hotel 2 days before and after an inter island cruise in late August. The location relative to Waikiki beach is good and the facilities and size of their “Superior” room as described on their website suited our needs and budget. Travellers should note that the Continental Breakfast is very basic although they do provide hard boiled... More

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!
