We have just arrived home after 8 days staying here. We had 2 young children so affordability, facilities (microwave, stove etc) plus location was important. Location is perfect for the cost... Not far from the heart of Waikiki and also the beach which is great for little ones. Although the rooms are very dated and could do with a much... More

We stayed there for 5 days over the summer. It was my wife, me and 1 year old. I chose this hotel as it was the best 3 star hotel that I found that didn't raise any red flags when i was reading it's other reviews. Overall, I would say I was pleased with what we found. There is a... More

Well located a couple of blocks back from Waikiki beach the rooms are spacious but it's an older design. Clean with, in our room 1201, an air conditioner that blasted cold air directly against your head as you lay in bed. Not the most efficient AC for the size of room. Two single beds which wouldn't be my preference but... More

We stayed a week at the Pacific Monarch and thought it was great. It's only a couple of blocks back from the beach right in the Waikiki area. There are a couple of 'ABC' general stores very close by and a 'Food Pantry' supermarket within 5 minutes walk. There's also an 'Alamo' car rental almost next door. We walked to... More

First Hawaii trip and we stayed at Aqua Pacific Waikiki. The hotel was good, staff was friendly, room was clean (very important), but we were a little disappointed in numerous unforeseen charges. There were parking charges per day (typical at any hotel in Waikiki), but upon leaving we were hit with other charges that we feel we should not have... More

I would definitely return to the Aqua Pacific Monarch. The many positive reviews I read prior to booking did it justice. Ideal location moments from the beach, fabulous views from the Ocean View Room on the 31st floor for a reasonable price. Every single staff member we encountered on our 9 night stay was super friendly and helpful. Although the... More

Pros: 1. Very near the beach. The beach is crowded, but that’s Waikiki. 2. Great ocean view from high floors. Not sure about lower floors. 3. Convenient location to dining and shopping at all price levels. 4. Extras ($15/day): Ice water dispenser in the lobby (refreshing!), DVD rentals, shuttle to Ala Moana, daily Honolulu Star newspaper, in-room coffee (blech), in-room... More

This is our third visit and eight years since we last visited. It is not a grand or lavish hotel and from the outside not eye catching. However if you want a nice friendly and well priced room in Waikiki then this one is for you. It is an easy three minute walk to the beach, across the road is... More

We stayed in the kitchenette. It wasn't very big, but it was comfortable. Beds were nice, view was fantastic. It's nothing fancy, but it was only a few blocks from the beach, and it was clean. Front desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. They even had a movie/relax room where our group had a pizza party our last night. The... More
