Let me start off by saying that the customer service from the Aqua Aloha Surf and Spa is probably some of the best that I've ever had to deal with. Everyone from the front desk to the woman who cleaned our rooms, we're all very friendly. During the second day of our trip, one of my friends had dropped her... More

Okay, the rooms may be small and the showers are really small but who stays in their rooms in Hawaii? Clean, simple hotel. I traveled with 2 teenage boys and the sofa was a pull out bed (the boys alternated with who had to sleep with mom). Who cares if there is a room a/c...it worked and kept the room... More

The Aqua Aloha Surf and Spa is a great place to stay in Waikiki. It's a short walk to the beach, but it's out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. The staff is so friendly and helpful and they make you feel right at home. The room was very comfortable and affordable. I would... More

We had a nice stay at the hotel. The staff was helpful and service good. Breakfast is only from 7-8:30 in the morning. It's not anything special, but they make fresh pancakes for you. Parking can be expensive. At the hotel it's $20 a night, but we found free street parking about a 10 minute walk away. There's also $10... More

This charming hotel was remarkably comfortable and relaxing. It is just small enough to offer that "boutique" hotel feeling, far beyond its affordable rates. The staff and management were exceptional;, always available without being overbearing, efficient and effective but calm and professional. The Aloha Spirit is alive and well at the Aqua, from Manager Tim Clark's warm and competent demeanor,... More

My family (with our 2 year old son) went to the Aqua Aloha Surf in May 2010 for a realxation beach trip. This hotel was excellent for the price; however, remember the price factor as there are some minor issues. The hotel location itself is excellent as it is located within two blocks on the main part of Waikiki Beach.... More
