If you're looking for a place to lay your head after a busy day touring Oahu then the Aqua Bamboo and Spa is a great choice. My husband and I stayed at the Aqua for three nights before heading off to the next island. The location of this hotel is fantastic. It is literally a couple of blocks from Waikiki... More

We were at the the neat hotel for the entire month of March 2010. The all staff was most helpful the entire time. The pool area and waterfall are an oasis in the heart of Waikiki complete with shower, cabanna, and great padded poolside lounge chairs. They supply apples, coffee, tea and lemon water all day long (free). We will... More

Our holiday to Hawaii was to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. We picked this hotel for its location, not wanting to be on the beachfront nor wanting to be in a big complex. As a regular trip advisor user when planning holidays, we ruled out a lot of hotels leaving the Aqua Bamboo and Spa our first choice. We... More

Great location, right in the middle of everything. The staff was kind and friendly. Hotel was clean and in good shape, the rooms were comfortable and very quiet. Would highly consider staying again on our next visit.

The answer to "just give me a room that looks like your internet picture" was: "Sorry we gave that to your cousin" Hookers outside, tattoo parlour next door, crappy shady pool area, broken lanai furniture (lanai was so small our backs were to the htl and our knees hit the railing), burned linens, just a horrible experience.

We stayed here on military orders and only stayed 3 nights (rather than the 2 weeks we had reserved). We got the kitchen on the city side room. The room is soooo noisy- the housekeeping put earplugs on our bed! It's right outside a bus stop and the bus comes about every 5 minutes day and night. Anyway, I don't... More

The Bamboo is a small "gem" in the middle of Waikiki. With the very inviting hotel entrance, to the helpful doorman, and the very charming lobby--it has an atmosphere of a by-gone era. We took advantage of most of what the Bamboo had to offer: the continental breakfast in the beautiful courtyard; cooling off in the lovely pool and then... More
