We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Aqua Palms and Spa. The staff coudn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our room was very comfortable and had a great view of Diamond Head (and we could also see the ocean.) A few reviewers have complained about the breakfast - it is a continental breakfast near the pool given as...

We stopped over in Hawaii on our way home from the U.S to Sydney at the end of a wonderful 3 week holiday. The Aqua Palms was a huge disappointment after the quality of the hotels we had experienced everywhere else. Not a good note on which to end a fabulous holiday. The premises are old and dingy, the 3...

Brian was the epitome of the Aloha spirit and a wonderful host of the hotel making our last day and night the perfect end to a lovely holiday. We would definitely return to Aqua Palms and Spa based in large part on Brian's attentive and fun welcome. Thank you!

I had never been to Hawaii before, so I did my research, including reading reviews on here, and decided to go with Aqua Palms and Spa, for budget reasons, but also because of location. We had mostly stayed in 4 star hotels in the year previous, so we did not expect much, thinking, "Hey, we will be in Hawaii. Who...

We had a wonderful trip to Honolulu, and Aqua Palms and Spa was great. The service was excellent, helping us with our requests. The bed was very comfortable. We were about 5 blocks from Waikiki beach, with a view of Diamond Head out the window. The restauants around the Aqua Palms and Spa were delicious.

My little girl & I stayed @ the Aqua Palms & Spa on 9/14 - 9/19, it was wonderful. The room was a nice size with clean and comfortable beds, balcony & nice size flat screen television, counter top, fridge, microwave, separated from bedroom, continental breakfast every morning, poolside, and all the staff were very accommodating. Most importantly the beach...

We recently returned from a gorgeous stay at the Palms. At first, I was rather sceptical because we did only pay $440 for five nights and 6 days....however the staff's great personality, terrifically comfortable beds dazzled us. We didn't want to leave the room. Yes, I highly recommend this hotel...and I am stickler on Hotels. However, the location was also...

I recently spent a week in Honolulu and had a wonderful time. The hotel I chose after reading reviews on Tripadvisor was the Acqua Palms. The hotel is centrally located and very comfortable. My room was large and the bathroom had a large counter to spread my stuff out on. The staff was super helpful with "first timer" questions. The...

Right outside of Waikiki so it's less crowded. Hotelroom was great. Enough space with complimentary bathrobes, magnetron, fridge. The pool is not that big though and is affected by a lot of street noise (cars and building activities across the street at the Hilton). Beach is like 5-10 minute walk so that's no biggie. We used the beach in front...
