Aqua Skyline at Island Colony
- What's Included
We stayed here 5 nights and found the room to be satisfactory. It was clean and close to shopping, restaurants, and plenty of public beaches. The only negative was the cost of parking the car and ammenity fees. $25 per night for parking plus a charge of 18 dollars per night for amenities that we did not realize until our arrival. The building is very secure. Poor view from our room.
We are fortunate enough to visit every few years and stay here. The amenities have been updated and the security is great, but, BY FAR, what we love most about Island Colony is the location! It's just a couple of blocks from Waikiki Beach and right in the heart of Waikiki itself. The staff is always helpful and friendly.
This was the last hotel that we stayed at on our family trip of 6 weeks. There were 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 pre-teen so we booked 2 rooms for 9 nights in a Studio Panoramic Ocean View room. We were on the 36th floor and the view was great. We faced Diamond Head and also easily viewed the beach and the waterway on the other side. The balcony was a good size. Unfortunately the coffee shop in the foyer was rarely open but the food market on the 5th floor was excellent. The bathroom was very small. You couldn't put the bathmat on the floor and open the door at the same time! The towels were of a good quality but the size was not what we had been used to in our other hotels. The rooms were very hot and the air conditioner was way too noisy. Ceiling fans would have been a better option because you could not say that the rooms were air conditioned when the air con was unusable. Bedding was comfortable and clean. Our major problem was that when the booking was made I stressed that we would be paying cash for both rooms. When we checked in, again I stressed that we would be paying cash. We were told that it would not be a problem but by the next day, upon checking our credit cards, we noticed that we had been charged on our cards. I pointed it out to the staff and he said that they would reverse the entry if we paid cash then which we did. The problem is that with the credit card conversion and fees we are out of pocket $114au for each room! The hotel sent us a survey when we arrived home asking about our stay and I pointed out the difference and the manager wrote back and said his staff had been made aware of the problem so that it didn't happen again but didn't help us in any way. We would not stay here again and our other family members who were considering this hotel have now changed their minds. If they had wanted us to pay cash up front on check-in they should have said so, not charged our cards the next day. Definitely not a happy ending to our holiday.
I spent 2 nights at this hotel and my room was on the 39th floor... The view was magnificent, my room was nice and clean and the staff there were all very nice, Parking was only $25 per day, which I thought was pretty reasonable, considering most places charge a lot more. The coffee shop downstairs was great for morning coffee too. I'll be back for sure.
Booked a one bed panoramic view suite for 2 nights level 41 Pros: much cheaper and more spacious then more central Waikiki accommodation, awesome view, kitchenette and convenience store in the building, playstation and games plus wifi, Laundry facilities. Updated kitchen and bathroom. Friendly staff.Cons: Have to walk to the tourist areas through some rather rundown looking streets, air con is too noisy to use at night. The only living room furniture was a single arm chair which converted to a single bed. We had to request a fold away cot as we had booked for 4 guests. Cot was very uncomfortable and saggy. Not enough furniture for 4 people to sit. Given vague directions to where the shuttle bus pick up was for the mall, so it didn't stop for us. Make sure you get exact directions on where to stand.Due to aircon situation would not stay here again, but otherwise was ok.
