James was a friendly, outgoing, funny, and charming employee that assisted us with our day trips to the east-side if the island. It was a pleasure working with him and was on point when it came to recommendations. Despite lots of areas being closed, James listened and went to work on finding what we needed. If you stay here or near by, please come visit James at the concierge service desk. He knows his business. Thanks James!!

booked the partial ocean view which they said it was with pull out couch bed but they arrive they decided to upgrade us to the penthouse which I was excited however when we got to the room it wasn't much of an ungrade than I thought. Only on the bathroom was the upgrade since two since but no extra room and no pull out couch. smaller than I thought it would be. looked bigger in the pictures even in the penthouse suite. coffee pot was dirty so we requested for a new one. took us 30 mins to get a new one and I had to call twice since maybe they forgot. no numbers were provided to us to call for any service. not even a TV guide. the remote had no cover they used a tape just to cover it, clear tape may I add and can see the batteries. hardboard right? felt the dust in the air. elevator wasn't good the third one wasn't even cleared and kind of dirty. as I booked this they said it would be great and just went under new renovations but major disappointed the condition of the hotel. hotel bed was very comfortable thou. the bathroom door maybe had a whole or scratch but they just put paint over it which you can definitely tell but they didn't even try to match the paint with the same color just another color it. hallway was dirty when we went in our room. the location was great and parking was what I expected from Waikiki. Just expected it more to be better to be honest. Out of all the hotelsI ever stayed at to be honest this was the worse sad to say.

Aloha pmai1989: Please accept my sincerest apologies for the challenges you encountered during your recent stay at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. While we are working with a very limited staff and attempting to wrap up our room renovations that is no excuse for the problems you encountered during your stay. I know this is challenging times for everyone and this was supposed to be a relaxing experience for you and I'm sorry that it was not. Please know that this is not typical service from the Aqua Palms and we would like to be able to make it up to you. Contact the property directly for your next stay and we will gladly take care of you and make sure you have a much better experience. Me ke Aloha Pumehana, With Warmest Aloha, Patty Maher General Manager

The hotel is being remodelled, we got a good room, however the bathroom smelled like rotten eggs. The elevator was really slow, we took the stairs most of the time (10th floor). The hotel is at a very good location, near Waikiki and there are many restaurants and shops around. Staff is kind and helpful. We felt scammed with our bill because it didn't match the price stated in our booking... They charge you one extra night, but don't worry it's just 160 dollars! We were not told we had to pay to use the parking either. However, we did know we had to pay a daily ammenity fee, I still wonder what ammenities we paid for... I hope it wasn't for the use of the swimming pool which was really small and we didn't use. We had other options to stay at and if we had known all these aspects we wouldn't have chosen Aqua Palms.

I had a non-refundable booking with this hotel for April 2020 and unfortunately will not get to stay due to the quarantine. I just want to give them high praise for relaxing that policy to allow a cancellation with no penalty and no hassle. Considering the financial hit they are about to take, they could have adhered to their policy or simply provided a future travel credit. When I am able to visit, I will definitely book with them again. If they are this accommodating towards someone canceling, imagine how they must treat their guests.
