We stayed here in May 2014 while we were presenting at a conference and enjoyed some holiday time too. My husband, daughter and I found the kitchenette (stove (no oven), microwave, fridge, sink) very convenient for breakfast or small meals. The easy walking distance to the beach was great as was having use of hotel towels (and chairs if available)... More

Aloha! Thank you for staying at the Pacific Monarch Hotel. We also appreciate your feedback on trip advisor. The location of this hotel is fabulous, it's very close to a lot of things in Waikiki especially the beach. The AC is a project we are working on but we do appreciate you bringing it to our attention. As far as... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on a recent holiday in Waikiki and were very happy with this hotel. Our view from the 29th floor was spectacular and the design of the room to maximise the view is very clever. We found the room to be very comfortable, clean and well appointed. The staff were helpful and friendly at every... More

We stayed here several times. This time a roach was climbing the wall in the bathroom. The drapes and carpet were stained. We had to wait 24 hours for management to resolve the problems. Housekeeping does not do a good job.

Aloha! Thank you very much for staying at the Pacific Monarch Hotel. I do apologize for the inconvenience you encountered during your stay.

The hotel itself is a little outdated and run down, but the convenience outways this. The air conditioner in our room on the 8th floor was struggling to keep up with the hot weather, also did not help that it was located near the floor and blowing directly under a table. It's a bit squishy when you have 3 kids... More

This hotel was very basic, but was clean with a comfortable bed and just a 5 minute walk to the beach. It was also very close to the public transport. We spent 2 nights here. If we return to Waikiki we would choose a more upmarket hotel.

This hotel rocks for any 1st time visitors. It's right in the center of it all. 2 minutes walk to the beach; restaurants and shops. The only thing I would recommend is to request a room higher up. (Better view). The hotel is a little on the older side but they do a good job keeping it up. Oh did... More

Last minute booking...didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised. Rented a corner unit that had a balcony table and chairs which was really nice .. Had meals there. The one bedroom was not huge but with 2 kids we made it work. Clean and close to the beach. Good rental

I recently stayed at the Aqua Pacific and found the staff, rooms and service all excellent. We had an ocean view room which gave us just that, a great view of the beach with a welcomed breeze each day. A 2 min walk to the beach, shops and transport made our stay very enjoyable. I Would stay here again.
