The Aqua Wave was nothing special. In fact, it was probably worse than I expected and that could well be because of the very average customer service. The porter was wonderful. Very kind, friendly and helpful but the girls working behind reception counter were far from nice. They were not welcoming or helpful in anyway. From the minute we arrived... More

We spend 6 nights for a conference in Honolulu The room we had was very spacious but was over a huge construction site for a shopping center they are starting here. It was a bit noisy. Proximity to the beach is quite good and they have beach towels and chairs. The room needs an urgent renovation. With an old smell... More

Staff is very helpful and the location is convenient. The price is very reasonable for what you get. However, the hotel borders the construction site for the new International Marketplace now under construction. In addition, there is a nightclub across the street that blasts music until 2:00 or 2:30 am. Not the hotel's fault, but it will interrupt your sleep... More

Stayed here pre cruise for 2 nights. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located but the noise from the nightlife of Kuhio Avenue can be heard all night and the construction zone on one side of the hotel is also a bother. We had a choice of room facing the construction site... More
