“Good location & Spacious Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We were very comfortable with the hotel. First of all the hotel location is fantastic! Wonderful people who work there made our stay very special! Our favorite staff was Dexter! He was just nice. Also a concierge was so good! She was very nice to us. We requested for free upgrade room over the Email, and it really happened!! We had a great time in Hawaii. Thank you very much for your wonderful hospitality. Mahalo!

Aloha,

Being in the middle of Waikiki offers so many advantages. Our staff is what makes the Pearl so special, like a hidden gem. It is the ‘Aloha Spirit’ that is alive and well at the Waikiki Pearl.
Thank you for taking the time to write your comments and submitting them.

As a large family making a military move to Hawaii, the staff and facilities at the hotel were outstanding. Eric, Dexter and Jamar were the most friendly and helpful in making our transition to the island as smooth as possible. They were never to busy to recommend a place to eat or give us advice on other activities. This was by far the best stay at a hotel during our move. The entire staff at Aqua Pearl was outstanding. Thank you for making us feel at home!

Aloha,

Thank you for your review.

More importantly thank you for your service to our country. The least we can do is make you and your family comfortable at our hotel while you defend our country. On behalf of my staff and myself, thank you for your service. We try and treat our guests like family as we welcome them to our home. It makes me happy to know that Dexter, Eric and Jamar are on top of their ‘A’ Game. Thank you for taking the time to submit your comments.

We loved the Aqua Waikiki Pearl staff. They are so helpful. One person really stood out. Eric Peterson. He was professional and personal. So kind to our whole family. We now friends with him and found out that his Uncle lives by us on the mainland so he asked us to look him up. Eric is a genuine asset to your hotel. I've observed him and Eric is thoughtful to everyone! What a natural public relations person. Thank you for the wonderful experience we had in Hawaii! Mahalo!

Aloha,

Thank you for loving us! Eric is very helpful and has the ‘aloha spirit’ in his blood. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. When traveling with family, sometimes it can be very, very, stressful. I am happy that you had the chance to relax, and enjoy what the Pearl has to offer. Eric is like our hotel, a hidden gem in the middle of Waikiki.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Dexter is a great asset to your company. He means well and mends well with his customers. He knows exactly what to say while being asked questions. I appreciate people that represent and stand prominently to promote great, efficient and outstanding customer service! My stay at the Aqua Pearl was my first and it will not be my last; great rooms, great location and great service!

Aloha,

Dexter is one of a kind and is just like our hotel, a hidden gem in the middle of Waikiki. His wealth of information and plethora of knowledge amazes even my husband who is born and raised, part Hawaiian and very educated.

Customer service is not something you can really teach; you either have it in you or you don’t. Dexter is a living example of someone who comes to work with a great attitude and who is willing to go that ‘extra mile’ to insure that our guests are well taken care of. I thank you for noticing that, because that is not the norm in today’s competitive hustle and bustle world that we live in. Dexter will be bashful when I share this review with the rest of the team.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

First, let me say that the employees were really great and welcoming. We had no issues with our reservation or getting into our room. Great location. You are right across the street from the International Marketplace, which made us feel like we were in the heart of Waikiki. A couple of blocks from the beach. Starbucks (not that good) within steps and ABC stores, for incidentals, every half block.

Room was fairly clean and was good sized, with outside entrance. Microwave, refrigerator and safe were nice extras. The main complaint was noise, or to be more specific, closing of doors. When the neighbors closed their doors, it seemed to be inches from you and shake the entire room. We were awakened several times during our stay with the sound of shutting doors. We didn't really hear people in their rooms and didn't hear a ton of external noises (except for the doors) until 5:30 or 6:00am. For those who value watching TV on vacation (just saying), this is not the place. Elevators were slow. We were on the 3rd floor so just took the steps most of the time.

The Pearl is fine for what it is. It is a budget hotel in a great location. We chose to spend our money on skydiving rather than on a nicer hotel and the Pearl certainly served that purpose. Some people aren't familiar with it so if you are in a Taxi or Shuttle, just tell them to go to Ohana West.

Aloha,

Thank you for recognizing our staff and their efforts. We offer tremendous value for those who stay with us. As you discovered, our location is very convenient to get around Waikiki. The size of our rooms impress many of our guests, because you just don’t find that kind of space in hotel rooms anymore.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
