If you like big construction sites and you like to see large construction equipment such as excavators with inbuilt jack hammer or big trucks for earth moving then you are at the right hotel with excellent view on the site since it is right next to the hotel. We have a 6 month old baby and it was terrible because... More

We stayed at the Aqua Waikiki Wave hotel for one night in transition for a flight home. The hotel is old and in need of some updating, but you can tell that the owners really have pride in their property. The lobby and rooms are clean and have all the amenities you would want (coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, etc.) The... More

Had such a great experience at Aqua Wave! In such a great location only 5 minutes walk to the beach and main strip of shops. The staff were so lovely and attentive - especially Stella - she helped me to find a hire car for the day and told me where to go for the cheapest prices. Beds made daily,... More

We arrived for 1 night in Waikiki with no accommodation booked, jumped on a Speedi Shuttle to a hotel and took advantage of their wifi.

Our travel agent booked us into this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel is older and could do with a refurbishment, but very clean and a great location. No pool, but the beach is only a short walk away.

We enjoyed our stay, our room was quite nice. We had a partial sea view from the balcony. After reading reviews on here about noise we requested a high floor, which we got.

I loved the old style feeling of this hotel. However the hotel is going to be renovated along with several properties on the block. Due to this the pool was closed and the craziness of a construction site made it difficult to get around this property. In our room it was a different world with a refrigerator and microwave along...
