Great Value for Waikiki

We just spent five nights at the Aqua Palms and loved it! Waikiki hotels can be very expensive and we were looking for something more reasonable for a quick getaway. The price was great and we were hoping the hotel would be ok and it exceded our expectations. We usually stay on the beach where all the hotels are, so I wasn't sure about the location, but it turned out to be far better than I thought it would be....I actually loved the location. The first room we got was a little tired looking so we did ask to switch and they were very accomodating. We then upgraded to an ocean view room with balcony (10th fl. higher is better) was worth the few extra dollas. The hotel also offeres a free shuttle around Waikiki, free sunscreen dispenser in the lobby, free beach towels, rooms are basic and clean...and all the staff were very friendly and great to deal with. Uber is $20 to/from the airport. This is a great three star hotel and would stay there again, without hesitation.

Convenient and reasonably priced

In regards to the room and the location this is worth the price.5' away from the beach and manu restaurants.Shuttle available to the mall and several attractions.The only issue we had was the booking/concierge service. Seriously,dont use it, they just want to take the most money out of you.Forced us to the most expensive dinner at the Polynesian center and it does not worth the price. Same with the pearl harbor tour, we asked for just the memorial and the Missouri and they actually sold us a all city tour that costs twice as much.And honestly, wake up early and go get free tickets to the memorial.For the service, staff was efficient and friendly.

Location and value

Location is great; a short walk from the center of Waikiki, and across the street and through the Hilton to the beach. We upgraded from a city view to partial ocean view which was worth it. From our balcony on the 9th floor we had two partial views of the ocean, and Diamond Head to the East. It's on Ala Moana which is the main route for buses and trolleys. The room was a nice size although the bathroom was small. You have to step to the side to close the door. However, everything worked fine, the amenities were nice (Hawaiian Tropic brand), there is a refrigerator, micro, coffee maker, iron, nice size TV, and free wi-fi which worked just fine. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens soft. Everything was very clean. We stayed four nights and could have stayed longer. It also has a pool (I didn't try it) and a self-laundry which came in very handy. It was also very convenient to have towels and beach chairs available. Our rate included breakfast at either IHop or Wailana Coffee House. The selection was limited but perfectly adequate and worth the money. We really liked the Wailana, both food and service besides being a local business.The staff was not overly friendly, but certainly friendly enough, polite, and helpful. There is water, tea, and coffee always available in the lobby, and a couple of computers you can use any time, very handy to print your boarding passes. We also rented a movie which was convenient. All the extras, except for breakfast, are included in the "resort fee". We have no complaints whatsoever, we fully enjoyed our stay, and we'd come back any time without hesitation. Besides, it was great value for the money.

Clean & Good Location

The hotel was clean and location isn’t far off from Waikiki Beach. You get free towels and beach chairs that you can take down and enjoy time on the beach. Only complaint is the room is a bit small. Otherwise being able to get movies for free in the evening and having an IHOP in the lobby which you get 15% off at was awesome!
