3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The hotel is basic but offers large rooms with two twin beds. It is a converted condominium. The window type aircon we had was noisy and needs to be replaced. There is a lot of construction near the hotel so expect noise during the day. There is no construction noise at night. The location is ok as it is close... More

We had booked 4 nights at the Aqua Wave and were moved here due to the refurbishment at Wave. We knew both were a relatively budget option for Waikiki, but the room was so disappointing we checked out after the first night. Yes the rooms are large as advertised but very poorly utilised, lots of empty space and gaps where... More

We stayed at this accommodation end of December 2015. The room was very low standard, old and bathroom very poor. Construction all around, woken up at 6am weekdays. Can hear people in the room next door. WiFi continually drops out. Hidden costs - When we arrived we were provided with a flyer advising that we had the following services available... More

Too much construction all around Jan. 2016--the street, two hotel buildings behind and adjacent made it very noisy!! Check this before booking...Rooms large, good cleaning service, helpful staff at front desk. Street parking is difficult to find...beware of towing.

While we didn't splurge on this hotel and the size of the room was generous it was disappointing for the money paid. The view was of a dingy street and there was construction taking place so that there was banging from early morning until early evening. We used the hotel as a base, so didn't spend much time there which... More

The only good thing about this hotel was its location to the beach and shops. Check in time was suppose to be 3pm however that was not the case and even by 4pm the staff behind the counter looked bewildered with a blank look to say, "yes we are on the computer screen and booked in but not sure if...

WaikikiPearl, General Manager at Aqua Waikiki Pearl, responded to this review

Dear ZK, Mahalo for your post. I sincerely apologize for the comedy of errors that seemed to come with your room. There is no excuse on the lack of towels, broken toilet lever and a burner not working in the room. And unfortunately from there everything else became a domino effect of experiences that affected your stay. We truly care... More

The carpets are stained and dirty, the foldout bed was broken, the insinkerator doesn't work, one hotplate worked out of the two, the toilet got blocked, utensils not adequate for self contained unit, the furniture was from the 70,s, no maintenance done, check-in was later than 3pm, furniture on balcony is old and...

Stayed here during Christmas for 11 days. Friendly staff, good location and comfortable stay. I wish parking was cheap, they charge $25 per night or $20 overflow garage. Walking distance to supermarket, beach and bus stop. I would definitely stay again here.

Off the beaten path but easy walk to Waikiki Beach and restaurants. Staff was excellent, room was clean. Very few in hotel services but concierge was very helpful. The hotel was simply in need of renovation. It looked old and our room was missing a chain and had a broken deadlock. Furnishings were outdated by current hotel standards but we're... More
