We chose Aqua bamboo for our family holiday and we weren't disappointed. The room (we got the 2 bedroom) was large and the room had all the amenities you could need and more! Full size oven, microwave, fridge, coffee maker (no kettle though??) PlayStation, tv etc. There was a balcony for each bedroom. We were on the street side of... More

We had to book in here because of an error in our booking elsewhere. We were pleasantly surprised with a lovely clean room overlooking the pool with two balconies. The well appointed kitchenette with full size refrigerator and stove as well as a microwave. The pool area was lovely with swaying palms and of course bamboo. Staff were accommodating and... More

This hotel is only a block away from Waikiki Beach. Our room had a small kitchenette which made grabbing a small breakfast or quick sandwich for lunch very easy. A bus stop was also close to the hotel making using public transit very easy.

Advantages: - Central location (5min walking from Waikiki beach - not the best beach of Hawaii at all but very famous) - Kind employees - Small kitchen (if you manage to find some fresh food...) Disadvantages: - Needs to be renovated - Moldy smell - No sound isolation at all: if you have a chamber close to the road, you... More

This was our second time staying here, 2 weeks +, and once again we weren't disappointed. Love the location being a short 4-5 minute walk to the main shops/restaurants and Waikiki beach. The room was clean although a little dated but at the price/location it is unmatched. The pool/spa area is beautiful/clean. Our 10month old had the time of his... More

Good location and nice staff. Loved the pool area and the specialty coffee machine in the lobby. Also had a filtered water machine. We found our room a little small and when they heard, they offered to move us to a bigger room right away.

The apartment is comfortable, well equiped, in a good position, near the beach and the shops. Beach towels available at the reception and can be changed every day. Parking is also available at the near public parking. We were here for four days we had a very good time.
