My family and I stayed at Aqua Skyline for two nights and loved it! Brian was so helpful and efficient at making my reservations. He also made checking in and checking out a breeze. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we loved the amenities. I was shocked to find out that renting movies and games were free! The last time... More

I booked this hotel room after numerous searches over many days. The room looked quite modern and new as it has been updated, unfortunately the make over was on the cheap side. The bed was lumpy and not comfortable. The wifi was impossible to connect to, not sure if it was just so very slow. The bathroom was designed for... More

The room we stayed in only had AC in the bedroom. This made it extremely difficult for the living room/kitchen cool off during the day since there's a hallway connecting the two. We tried to have a fan "push" the air into the living room to no avail. The pool is a decent size but quickly got crowded since this... More

We have stayed in Waikiki a few times now and found this hotel suited us best. Fully self contained with BBQ area and Swimming Pool & Laundry. Fantastic location. One block from the main drag. One block from the Galleria and just around the corner for the trolley buses. Everything was in walking distance. Supermarket just around the corner. We... More

We found Roger's 1 bedroom apartment, available on HomeAway, to be a perfect space for a family of 4 to base themselves for a Waikiki holiday. The apartment is spacious, modern & has all the facilities needed for the family to function upon checking in. The kids sleep on comfy beds converted in the lounge room, so parents can adjourn...

We stayed on the 39th floor in a condo we booked on Air Bnb. The accommodations were wonderful and the view was spectacular! Walking distance to Waikki beach and restaurants. We didn't use any of the amenities but there are plenty offered.

Stayed here for a week in mid March. The location is quite good, close to public transportation and walkable distance to shops in Waikiki. The room we had was on the upper level and the view is amazing. The room is of reasonable size with the two double beds but the bathroom is on the small side. The shower head... More
