We are staying at aqua wave as I write. Staff are very pleasant and helpful, wi fi quite good, rooms cleaned everyday and bed linen and towels are spotless. We requested a high floor away from construction site and that is what we have. There is no issue with noise where we are which is 8th floor overlooking small market... More

We stayed here in July 2014, location is central and it is close to beach and shops. Check in experience was a little unpleasant for us, there is no drop off zone around the hotel and you will have to carry the luggages up 20 step of stairs before you can access the lobby and the elevators.

We were not sure if we would like either this hotel or the hustle and bustle of Honolulu but both were a pleasant surprise. In fact we liked Waikiki more than we thought we would and enjoyed our time on the beach, shopping in the town and eating at various restaurants. Having spent some time in Waikiki we could see...

A hotel in the heart of Waikiki. 2 mins walk to the beach and shops. [1 min walk to an ABC store!!] Great friendly service and very helpful. Looked after our luggage while we were on The Big Island for a few days. The Junior Suites were very comfortable for the 4 of us, and was very quiet for us... More

Good location, big rooms but very small bathrooms. Construction site next door meant very noisy and dusty and pool was closed and I understand these works will continue for some time. Difficult to access with no ramp at front but rather stairs although there is access from basement .

Aloha. While we are thrilled you enjoyed our location here at the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel we are disappointed to hear you did not think it was a favorable time to stay. The International Marketplace next door is being reconstructed and will include approximately 75 retailers and seven restaurants. So although it can be an eyesore at times, we are... More

We had a one-day layover after being on the Pride of America cruise. AAA booked this hotel for us as a "perk" in order for us to spend a day at Pearl Harbor, so we stayed here purely by chance. It is an older hotel, but our room was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only... More

Stayed here one night in Waikiki. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and had a nice balcony with table and chairs. TV was good, shower had good pressure. Pool on 6th floor was nice with a huge pool deck and hottub. Convenient Waikiki location. I'd stay again.
