this hotel is in great location, close to beach and main street, the flea market is right beside the hotel. public transportation is also close by. hotel has it's own parking lot, but they charge guest $25/night parking. there is Chinese restaurant in hotel lobby, which is horrible. We book this hotel from booking.com, price was okay compare to others,... More

Very disappointing stay. Firstly construction was taking place next door and it was so noisy! Room was big but basic. You could hear nightclub music early hours of the morning from the room. WORST of all - someone called our hotel room ph - pretending to be hotel and saying computer systems were down and they had to check us... More

I holidayed here in March 2015 and enjoyed my 9 night stay. The Wave is central to everything at Waikiki, The hotel itself is a little old but I was told by the staff that hotel was about to be updated. The hotel has a shuttle bus service that takes you to the Ala Moana shopping centre and I and... More

We spent the night at Aqua Waikiki Wave on a stopover to Kona, Hi. The staff was friendly and the check in was smooth. We booked a room with 3 double beds and the room was as advertised. Some of the floors appear to have been updated while ours was not. The hotel is in an area of construction and... More

2nd stay at this hotel. On arrival I was a bit put out by the construction work happening next door (building the new International Market Place) but tools were down around 5pm each night and seeing as we weren't in our room much it really didn't matter. The 3pm check in is a bit of a nuisance after such a... More

We have had great service here. And in the evening they served snacks and some alcholic beverages, no charge. They staff has been nothing but helpful. We really enjoyed staying there. Free DVD rental, beach towels, chairs, and much more!

Lots and lots of great things going on at this hotel! I stayed here for 5 days/4 nights and was pleasantly surprised for the most part of my stay. 1.

Stayed here one night due to flight issues. I think i Definitely spoiled myself staying at the moana surfrider the first few days. Not comparable. Needed a room for one night and this was one of the least expensive. Parking is horrible. Located in a gargae under the hotel and theres only one way in and out. If your driving... More
