My partner and I stayed in the Aqua Bamboo for 9 nights at the beginning of February 2013 and we were really impressed. We emailed before we arrived to ask if there was any possibility of a 'nice' room as it was a special trip for my 50th birthday. We did indeed have a 'nice' room. It was 1006 and it was at the back of the hotel with views of the pool and the sea. It also had a little balcony at the side with a table and two chairs. I think the rooms that end 001 and 006 are the best rooms and the higher up you are the better the views.
The little kitchen was great although we didn't cook a thing!
We used the (free) hotel beach towels and beach chairs every day that we went to the beach and these saved a small fortune because on the first day we discovered that if you wanted to hire two sunbeds and an umbrella for the day it was $25!! crazy prices.
The hotel concierge booked all of our trips for us and they were all BRILLIANT. Pearl Harbour, Turtle tour, Polynesian Cultural Centre.
We really had an amazing time and the Aqua Bamboo was the perfect place to stay.
