A big thank you to Issac & his fellow staff members they made us feel at home & the service was perfect. The rooms were spotless, great views & light, comfy beds (1504 & 1501). Could not fault anything for our stay. Moved to the Aston for two days after but wish we had stayed at the Aqua Wave the... More

Was a perfect location, right in the heart of Wakiki. The rooms were average, we got what we paid for. Didn't like that the foyer smelled like chlorine and was disappointed by the concierge's recommendations. He must have gotten a kick back for referring us to restaurants because the places he suggested were awful.

First let me start off by saying that this was my first time to Waikiki, however not my first time to Hawaii. So I have a point of reference. If you are looking to be in Waikiki then there are better choices for your money. First the pictures we saw of the room may have been taken when the hotel... More

Stayed in November for a week, this hotel is perfectly situated, everywhere my partner and I needed to walk to around waikiki was walking distance- zoo, man made lagoon, retail shops, and all the popular resturaunts. My parter is a light sleeper and it gets noisy at night, hotel has addressed this by leaving ear plugs in room. Can't complain... More

We stayed here on our trip to Hawaii in August 2014. The hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful with any request we had. Our room overlooked the construction site but did not bother us as we were out during the day and they were not working at night. Room was nice and clean and very spacious. Location was... More

There are several good points about the hotel... I will start with those first. The hotel staff during the daytime are amazing... Especially Skye... She went above and beyond to help me. We had two rooms, one on the 11th floor and one on the 9th floor. The hotel is clean and has a store for drinks and such and... More

We stayed at the Aqua Wave Wakiki from 11/6/14 thru 11/14/14. Great location, we walked everywhere. Hotel staff (housekeeping, bell men, front desk, mgmt) were all friendly, professional people. Whenever we needed advice on where to eat, sit on beach, etc, they were spot on. Whenever we needed cab, bell men called for one and the wait was short. Hotel... More

We found the staff to be VERY friendly. From the front desk crew, security, and maintenance to the house keepers, we had very pleasant interactions with all. The location is great! Close to fine dining, fast food, coffee shops and even a grocery store just down the street. Close also, to Waikiki Beach. Close enough to walk to the surf... More
