Where surf and play are just steps away! This fun surf themed hotel is near popular nightclubs, the International Market Place and just 2 blocks from all the excitement of Waikiki Beach. Modestly priced, this hotel offers great value and comfortable accommodations.

Location: In Waikiki, near the Ala Wai Canal and 4 blocks to the beach, 15km from Honolulu Int'l Airport.

No frills. A get what you pay for kinda place. Staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Breakfast was kind of Asian inspired. The eggs were terrible so we stuck to the staples. Pancakes, corn and rice. You can get cheap drinks at the hotel bar and talk to a lot of locals. Bartender very friendly.

150 meters to beach

Good size able to swing a cat and more microwave close to popular locations staff very obliging. Large range of food for breakfast catering for nationalities. Could have gone for another hour finished at 9am . 10am would be better for the late rises. Staff most helpful for arranging tours

Great stay...highly recommend

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights and have no complaints. Although the hotel may appear a little old, rooms were clean, cozy, and very comfortable. Everyone - from the front desk staff to housekeeping - was always nice, pleasant, and extremely helpful. There's a PS3 in the room if you have children who play games or you can use it to watch DVDs, both of which you can "rent" in the lobby for free. Complimentary continental breakfast offered daily was okay, but we opted to venture out and see what Hawaii had to offer on some days. The hotel is located about 3 blocks from the beach and within walking distance from many shopping centers, restaurants, and the city bus system. It's even close enough to walk to the "local side" of Waikiki to eat some local food at local prices. The hotel offers guests free wi-fi in the rooms and lobby area, and there is a bar in the lobby for those who wish to grab a cold one. Laundry room is in the basement and available to all guests from 6am to 10pm. The bed was super comfortable. We stayed on the 14th floor and there was always a breeze on the patio; so sitting outside on the patio enjoying the warm sun and cool breezes were a plus for us. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone needing a nice, comfortable room without wanting to pay the high prices of the 5 star hotels on the beach. Well done, Aqua Aloha helped to make our stay enjoyable! Mahalo!

Very Happy!

My stay at the Aqua Aloha Surf was extremely pleasant and stress free! The staff were all friendly and helpful; the location was only a short stroll away from the main Waikiki strip which was perfect, because you're just far enough away from the crowds and noise. This hotel is not luxury, however it provides you with all the basic essentials if you are an easily pleased traveller. The pool and breakfast facilities weren't excellent, my partner and I much preferred to get breakfast out and do all our swimming at the beach, however once again it is sufficient enough for the easily pleased traveller. The also have a bar and laundry facilities which came in handy.I would highly recommend this hotel and will be choosing to stay here on my future travels to Hawaii

Wonderful Visit!

I was impressed walking into the open breezy lobby! Fortunate for me, I was upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor- the view of the city was phenomenal! I was even able to view the ocean in the distance. The interior of the room was obviously older (ie: walls, bathroom tiles, shower, ACs, etc) but everything was clean and cozy! I loved that the room had the louvre windows to let the breeze blow through. It was such a comfortable stay- and the beach and shops are all within walking distance. I had no disturbances during my stay and the front desk staff were all so friendly and kind. The continental breakfast was interesting with fried rice, noodles, and kimchee on the buffet- but it was all a pleasant surprise and tasty! I would definitely recommend this place and stay again should I return to Hawaii!
