We stayed here in August and must say the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room wasn't ready on arrival however there was an oceanview room that was available and we could be upgraded to that for an extra $20 per night plus taxes which we agreed to. We were on the 27th floor - very high but the... More

we chose the aqua pacific monarch mainly for location, one stone throw away from Kuhio beach, 3 minutes distance from Duke's statue. The hotel is just behind the Hyatt, on the higher floors it definitely has the same view as the hyatt... with a totally different and more approachable budget. we had a "1bedroom ocean view & kitchen" on the...

We were there for almost 2 weeks in July 2014. The room felt cramped; we didn't feel they maximized the best use of their space. The A/C in our room didn't work very well, so we sweat all night and all day. The A/C leaked water all over our stuff. We used our bath towels they gave us to clean... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and I love the central location. Rooms were a great size with a kitchenette. The view from the rooftop pool is one of the best in waikiki. Staff were very helpful and polite. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Location was awesome. Had a kitchen that was very convenient. Grocery store about a block away. The only complaint was that the air conditioner was not the best. It was not bad enough to keep me away. I would stay here again. The parking was tight, but this is Hawaii, not many places to park. Family of five stayed comfortably.... More

Have stayed at this hotel on every trip we'e made to Waikiki and sent several friends and relatives as well because our experiences have been so good. Sent our grandmother back for a few weeks' stay in August 2014. Upon arrival, she was severely disappointed in her room, which she equated to "more Motel 6 standards than Pacific Monarch standards."... More

I haven't had a great experience at the Aqua Pacific Monarch. Just because you book an "ocean view" room does not in fact mean you will have a clear unobstructed view of the ocean, we booked ocean view only to be severely disappointed to find that when we stepped out not the verandah that we did not face he ocean...

Great Hotel! Value for money and excellent customer service! Upon check in we were greeted by the friendly staff and given an partial ocean view room as requested. They even remembered that we were celebrating my best friends graduation. The room was clean, tidy and modern with a brilliant view of Diamond Head and Waikiki. The staff went above and... More

The Pacific Monarch is perfectly located just two short blocks from Waikiki beach and reasonably priced, offering great value. We booked a 1 bedroom suite for 3 nights there. The suites are small but have everything you need. There is a full kitchen, a dining table for four and a hide-a-bed in the main area. There is also a desk... More
