We had a week here in June and it was a great location for a family of four to explore Waikiki from. We had a one bedroom ocean view room which had plenty of space for the four of us for the short time we were in the room and a kitchenette so we could have breakfast in each day.... More

By no means do we consider ourselves financially well off and we work hard for our money. With that being said, if we plan to splurge on a family vacation for the four of us, you can believe that we will thoroughly research for THE best accommodations for our budget. Here is our breakdown of the AQUA PACIFIC MONARCH HOTEL:... More

Very good location. A short walk to main beach area. Services offered are good...but dont rely on them. Eg shuttle bus to Ala Moana Centre. This bus services all the Aqua hotels but only seats 12. It runs every 45 mins so its likely youll have to catch the bus as the shuttle is full or is late. Internet in... More

Have stayed here 4 times now and have always been impressed with the service and the accommodation.My friend and I shared a 1 bedroom ocean view apartment, which had a kitchen and two balconies. At approx $200 p/night this represents excellent value for the location. The room was clean and very comfortable, with a full sized dining table and plenty... More

Good hotel and centrally located a couple of blocks back from the beach. Stayed in room 1004 which was a large room with balcony. There was a large bed, lounge, dining table with 4 seats, small desk and a kitchenette with all utensils. Didn’t use the kitchen much as ate out all the time. The bathroom was very small but...

The views from the pool (on roof) were amazing. Could see the entire Waikiki landscape. The rooms were good but a little dated but other than that the team were friendly, location fantastic and surrounded by shops. Would recommend.
