1960s hotel, and it shows

I like Honolulu. It's safe, people are friendly & whilst some aspects are a bit expensive, tourists can get good value for $s spent. We were placed in Aqua Bamboo as part of our cruise package, and having previously used up to date TimeShare resorts in the city, this was rather sub-standard. The pool area was comfortable & secluded, but there is only one toilet. and the key must be obtained from the front desk. The air-conditioner was so noisy I could not hear the television, and it leaked onto the carpet, giving rise to mould. The bed was shorter than the standard queen-size, so my feet dangled off the end during the night, and I'm only 5'10"! However, the youthful staff were very polite and helpful. If I were a secret boss, I'd give them all a raise & secure them positions after the building had been knocked down & a new edifice erected!

Noisy and outdated

Disaster! Room 1205- on the 12th floor! Don’t stay there! Facing Kuhio- very noisy! Ask for a quieter room opposite the pool. Tiny reception area. You had to get a key to use the only one toilet outside in the pool area. The poolside pizza cafe sells 30” pizzas for $US30 at dinner time and you can bring your own wine/beer from the nearby ABC/liquor stores. Free tea/coffee iced water in the lobby. Our room was tiny, with a small double bed and a huge fridge/freezer, TV, coffee percolator, 2 hot plates, microwave, cutlery & crockery. Tiny ants appeared on the chest of drawers. Noisy, old, dirty, wall air conditioner, so bad we had to turn it off at night time, so we could sleep- but the noise from outside was deafening! The sliding door curtains to the tiny balcony were mouldy on the outside. Ended up with a migraine! The air-con unit leaked water outside the room, which then somehow seeped back into the carpet, which was wet & smelt of mould! The management sent an old guy who could barely speak English, with some insect spray for the ants, who then said that we must have kept the sliding door open! We could only check in at 3pm. Tiny pool and spa outside. I would not recommend you stay there, hotel needs a total overhaul! We had no choice since it was part of the Carnival Legend cruise from Sydney-Honolulu deal. Thank heavens we only had to stay one and a half nights.

Overnight stay in Honolulu

This hotel is just off the same strip of hotels in Waikiki. Hotel is adequate and suits the price charged for the accommodation. Rooms a big and we had two rooms. One with queen bed and main room with 2 single beds. Great kitchenette with very large fridge, full stove and microwave. Road is very busy outside and a fair bit of traffic noise in the rooms but didn't stop us from sleeping. The pool area is beautiful and very private. Hotel staff were lovely and very helpful. We didn't get to try the breakfast as we had a very early flight and left at 3.30am. Hotel arrange a taxi for us. Would definitely stay here again for a short stay. Not complaints really.

Great location

Super close to beach, shopping strip and great eating places. No need to take beach equipment ie lilos, blow up tubes they can be purchased cheaply at the ABC stores. Suggest booking online to some eating places - Cheesecake factory, Dukes and Tiki Bar and grill, all excellent places to eat. If you like shopping outlets is the way to go. Is a little pricey to get there by taxi, lots of shuttle around the $18US per head.
