4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

We have stayed at the Aqua Palms year after year and always loved it but this year it was a bit disappointing. We got a room on the 9th floor and we were looking forward to a nice hot shower since we had been in Samoa for 3 weeks and many times did not have hot water. The water pressure... More

The hotel was nice enough, but old. The part that upset me was the pool was not working on two different stays and nothing was said when booking the room .. Also, the only way to get wifi was to go down to the lobby.. It's been awhile , so maybe both things have been fixed, but I would ask... More

We had a military function across the street at a VERY expensive hotel. We wanted to be able to have a few cocktails and not worry about a ride home, so we started looking at hotels to stay just one night. The event venue was a FORTUNE and the Military hotel next door was booked. Enter the Aqua Palms Waikiki.... More

This hotel provides everything you need. The rooms are a little bit older but clean. The bathroom is really small. The swimming pool is closed due to renovations, they didn't tell us this in advance. It didn't look like it would open any time soon.

You get what you pay for. Cheap room is convenient, downtown location but thats about it. The double beds are tiny, old and uncomfortable and the AC is right above the beds and horribly noisy. There is a tiny pool. Why you would use it, I don't know.
