“Great value for money”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stayed here for 5 night on our way home to Australia. Great little hotel. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Room are always kept clean - air-con is noisy but you get used to it. We didn't have any problem with street noise.
The only thing that would make this a great hotel would be a pool.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived for my stay, as the price seemed too good to be true for the location. I certainly wasn't disappointed! The staff were so friendly and very helpful. The facilities are recently renovated, and very clean. The bed super comfy, and the location pretty perfect :) Yes, it isn't a luxury resort, but you do get what you pay for, and I think in this case, you get more than what you pay for. At time it was noisy, but any hotel in central Waikiki would be the same. I would recommend!

Just spent a week on Oahu staying at the Waikiki Pearl.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel was very clean, great location and very well priced relative to other hotels.

Only reason why this isn't a 5-star rating is the parking is bad. There's only limited spaces for a hotel of this size, when it's full the overflow parking is 2 blocks away on the Waikiki Trade Centre. The problem is the traffic during those two blocks can get pretty bad.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you are not renting a car.

We stayed at the Aqua Waikiki Pearl for 3 nights prior to a cruise and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the sheets were crisp and the towels were like new. The staff was knowlegeble and helpful, especially Harry. Some folks have written about street noise at night, but we were on an upper floor and we wear earplugs while we sleep, so noise was not a problem.

The Pearl is located a short walk from Waikiki, just 50 yards from the International Marketplace (try the Bluewater Shrimp there). Enterprise rent-a-car is only two blocks away.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are quieter

This hotel was very clean. I was able to get a room for under $100 a night with fees which isn't bad for Waikiki. It was really noisy, but then again, any hotel in that area would be. It's an extremely short walk to the back entrance of the International Market which was nice. The watermelon water at the front desk was a nice touch.

Excellent service from staff had booked with them as they were cheaper compared to others in Waikiki we were even upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite free of charge. Only downfall is they don't have a pool but the beach is only a short stroll down the road.

This place showed up on a Dog Friendly website, which was way overpriced then when I spoke to someone (Dexter) at the Hotel. He was courteous and patient with my questions about staying the night with our dogs. We were worried about our dogs being welcomed, but that wasn't a problem. From the time I checked in I felt the Genuine Aloha Spirit from (Robbie) the front desk. The Bell Man and even Dexter came out to greet us!
The room (2 bedroom suite) was just as we expected and it was comfortable all over. The only thing that could've been better was the dining room table, it was enough to fit 3 people and no plates.
I would recommend anyone wanting a little escape to Waikiki to stay here, especially since there are so many places to eat around the area. It was a GREAT Staycation for our Ohana!!
