I stayed at this hotel for four nights. When we checked in we were created by Isaac. He was so welcoming and and accomidating. He answered all of our questions. Our room was a spacious one bedroom with three beds and two balconies on the top floor. I couldn't have asked for a better room. Our housekeeper was Marilyn and... More

My family and I stayed here for a week at the end of March. We booked a deluxe partial ocean room and it was great. A special mention must go to Dee at the front desk. She was extremely helpful and professional making our experience a great one! The hotel is literally a five minute walk to Waikiki beach and... More

Pros: The best thing about this hotel is the location. Everything you need is within 2 blocks: restaurants, grocery store, designer stores, DFS Galleri dutyfree stores, Ross Dress or Less discount store, and souvenir shops. The rooms were a good size with 2 Queen beds and a wide sidetable/vanity. Clean and comfortable beds. Had a balcony so we can enjoy... More

We stayed here for a few weeks on military TLA. It was a nice walk to the beach, tons of shopping and a variety of restaurants. The staff at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. The woman, Felyn, who cleaned our room on the 4th floor did a great job and was so sweet! It was in a... More

We stayed here one night and it was every thing we needed. Clean and affordable. Great for family, it's also a short walk 5min walk from Waikiki beach and is right next to the Waikiki market. Although it was far from luxury it was all we needed for one night. Although the only complaint I have is the mattress was... More

Located in a pretty good spot, walking distance to most places. Construction Site next door is EXTREMELY loud at 7am each morning. We had to ask to be moved to the other side of the hotel due to the noise. Also, due to location you can hear people partying on the street until around 2-3am each morning. Bathrooms are feral....

Aloha. At the present time there is temporary construction going on in an area next to us where the International Market Place is being reconstructed to include approximately 75 retailers and seven restaurants which will add vitality and appeal to Waikiki for tourists and residents alike. Although this may inconvenience guests temporarily, it will greatly benefit all future visitors to... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic! A 5-10 minute walk and you are soaking in the rays on Waikiki Beach! Towels courtesy of the hotel. Our check in and check out was smooth. Front desk very pleasant. Our room, on the 5th floor was clean but definitely showing its age. The bathroom was very tired, but everything worked. The... More

Mahalo! It’s so nice to hear you were pleased with all of the aspects of your stay here with us at the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel. Yes, because of our prime location, in the heart of Waikiki, some establishments do run events late at night for guests traveling to the area. Sometimes these events can be loud, being a very...

As a first time visitor to Waikiki, I had no idea about location of this hotel and relation to beach, etc etc.I can report, that while not directly on beach, it is well located on Kuhio Ave, with a short 5 to 10 to the beach. Location near everything, meaning cheaper restos, convenience and grocery stores and the like. You... More

The service desk was helpfull and the hotel although isn´t fancy, it has all the accomodations that you need. The Room service was great, Felyn Dorilag cleaned the room perfectly. The view was nice and the hotel is located in front of one of the main streets of waikiki where you can get a hold of nice stores and restaurants.
