We loved the balcony overlooking the ocean and spent many an evening having a quite drink after a long day, looking over the city and surf. the shuttle bus was excellent (even if a little crowded at times) and the...

We stayed at the Aqua Pacific Monarch for 3 nights in October/November 2015. Check in/out was quick and easy with friendly staff. Although we arrived well before check in time our room was ready for us. The location is fantastic, only about a 3 minute walk from the beach, and everything you need (groceries, bus stop, restaurants, shops etc) is... More

The room was like a small apartment, with full kitchen, coffee maker, toaster, plates, pots, pans & utensils. Bedroom was its own room. Everything was clean and we could see the beach from our balcony two blocks away. Staff responded quickly to requests. I would go back there for sure! The pool is on the roof, and the hot tub...

The Pros: Location-one city block from beach. Walk to all restaurants and bars in Waikiki. The check in staff was super friendly and all staff that we came in contact with said hello to us. Had a superb corner room with a great view looking south down the city block to Waikiki beach on one side and of the quaint... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks, from early November until early December 2015. This hotel is mature and obviously undergone a relatively recent reno. The room was outstanding in terms of cleanliness – the kitchenette, fridge and associated area were immaculate (plenty of cutlery and etc. too). The lobby is small, and a snack bar is adjacent which... More

We stayed at the monarch Dec 19 to 29. We were very lucky to have stayed on the 31st floor with great Ocean views. The room was large and the full kitchen came in handy with breakfast and the odd dinner cooked. (The food pantry is just down the road.) All of the staff from front desk to housekeeping to... More

Originally we had booked an apartment that could accommodate my whole family, but six days before we were about to leave I get an email from the owner saying she had double booked us for a few days and couldn't check in until 3 nights later. The only compensation she was offering was to remove the cleaning fee and of... More

This hotel is less than 2 minutes walk from Waikiki beach. and price is reasonable considering the location. It is good if you traveling on a budget and want to stay in a hotel where all the aciton is. It's great for a group of friends or family. Not a romantic setting kind of a place. Pros: 1. Close to...
