The hotel was well located but very noisy. The larger family rooms face Kuhio Ave, which is incredibly busy during the day and night. Would only stay here in the future if I could secure a room that overlooked the pool area. The staff were very friendly.

When we stayed here, it was before they redid the hotel. We loved it. the price was reasonable, the staff were very helpful (they upgraded our room immediately for a very small price)and everything was spotlessly clean. The bathrooms were roomy and modern (I see they didn't remodel them).

First time to Hawaii and Waikiki. We selected Aqua Bamboo following perusal of Trip Advisor Reviews and we were not disappointed. Yes the rooms are a little tired, however the service and friendliness of the staff compensated for this. I was a little concerned that the road noise would be an issue, but this was not the case.

When we arrived at Aqua Bamboo we asked if we could leave our bags there overnight as we were going to Kona but the staff said the facilities were 'not safe' even though they had a luggage room. It then resulted in us having to use a 'recommended' third party who was hours late bringing our stuff back with no... More

The best thing about the Aqua Bamboo is its location. It's a short walk the beach, shops and restaurants and transport. The hotel has a nice pool and spa pool, and offer free juices which are necessary on a hot day. The rooms have everything you need however the view from the balcony was of a next door apartment block... More

We recently spent 14 days at this smaller but very well located hotel. We enjoyed our stay a great deal due to its closeness to the beach, the friendly staff, the overall cleanliness and the unexpected amenities provided to the guests: water, coffee, juices, apples, the daily newspaper and Thursday afternoon welcoming receptions which included snacks, drinks, Hawaiian music and...

We recently stayed here for 11 days. It was our first trip to Hawaii and we weren't sure how to pick a hotel! This hotel is a quick walk to the centre of the Waikiki Beach. It is on the main bus route, and we enjoyed travelling to most of our destinations that way. Within a few blocks of this... More
