4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Nice, simple hotel - unpretentious but good value for money. No breakfast, but there are two places with a discount next door. Convenient location, 5 minutes walk to the beach. Clean and friendly. Small pool.

This hotel is about as close as you can get to the oceanfront, without being on it! When arriving, parking was a bit confusing, but we figured it out. The garage was convenient. Our room on an upper floor had a view of the Hilton Hawaiian Village directly across the street. We had a nice tiny lanai outside our room.... More

They had an available room at a competitive price during the time we needed it. Near convention center and start of marathon. Waling distance to parks, restaurants and bus. Comfortable beds, quiet, secure, clean.

When we made our reservation for this hotel we were expecting something garish but old and in poor repair, what a delight to find this place was a joy in which to stay. The room was very comfortable and the view across the town was unremarkable until you saw the ocean in all its glory. Okay so there were other... More

They offer free refreshments and complimentary fruits in the lobby each day and on Wednesday's, they have a little party (Sway) for all the hotel guests with free appetizers and free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Hotel was perfect for us, close to beach, shopping center and away from the crowd and traffic of central Waikiki. The traffic and crowded sidewalks were not a factor at this hotel. Yet it was walking from the center of the activities, including the beaches, restaurants and clubs.

Lovely rooms very clean and spacious, quality amenities. Staff were very pleasant. Free shuttle to Ala Moana Shopping Centre. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. Pool was not available but that was a minor inconvenience overall. Would stay there again.

The room was spacious, a short walk to most shopping/food districts. Concierge was super helpful in helping us plan island activities, they had a great knowledge of everything you could do on the island. Staff were very friendly and helpful. This was my second stay at the Aqua Palms and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
