Aqua Waikiki Pearl Hotel is renovating so there is a lot of noise from jackhammers, etc during the day. However, you won't be sleeping at night either (even with the free ear plugs). A tree in the hotel parking lot is home to about a million birds that chirp deafeningly loud between the hours of dusk and dawn. Throughout the... More

We booked this accommodation for 8 nights through a package and were less than impressed when we arrived. The facilities are old and the decor is brown. There's a huge amount of construction which means it's not relaxing at all and sleep ins don't happen. My sister and I who are both nearly 30 were given a double bed to... More

We decided to have a two week holiday in Honolulu. We decided for a longer stay in cheaper accomodation. Before leaving we read about the construction going on next door so we asked for a room in one of the topfloors. At arrival they had put us on the topfloor in a room with a balcony which was a pleasant... More

This place is very well located. At the present time there is construction works next door, but that is during the day and not too noisy. Close to restaurants, 5 mins to the beach, courtesy bus to Ala Moana. The rooms were clean with a microwave and coffee maker. The best part was the staff. We received exceptional service from...

Firstly let me say that the staff here are extremely friendly and helpful. Also the hotel put on a little show with an islander singer who was very good. However the hotel itself looked like a motel. It was extremely ordinary. The location was very good however...within easy walking distance of many good restaurants, shops and the beach. There is... More

The only positive aspect of this hotel is the friendly,helpful staff.Besides that,the rooms and hallways are dingy, we did have a balcony but there was a terrible view so there was no reason to want to sit outside. But the worst thing was all the construction going on,horrible ! I will agree with other reviews that the pictures of the... More

It is not likely that we would return to this hotel. Before I explain why we would not stay here again, I would like to first point out a positive aspect of our stay: the staff themselves were VERY KIND AND OVERALL WONDERFUL (especially Ka'ele from the Elite concierge who was absolutely fantastic in every way and went above and...

The hotel is in an obscure location, the rooms were dirty and poorly lit, the construction across the way makes it look like you're on the set of slumdog millionaire. Overpriced for the hotel for sure, not worth the money. They tried to charge us for two days even though we checked out a day early at the front desk... More

We came to the hotel for both work and vacation. The room was sufficient for the cost but is in terrible need of new carpet. I had to keep my shoes on in the room or the bottoms would turn black. I found a cockroach the minute we stepped in, not a deal breaker knowing the climate is very inviting... More

I have stayed at and recently reviewed this property on May 25, 2015. This hotel has improved its service is just 2 months. I decided to take a chance and stay at the Aqua Waikiki Pearl hotel to see if service has improved or declined in just a couple months. At first I was weary but hey - everyone including... More
