Aqua Skyline at Island Colony
- What's Included
Myself and three friends stayed here in 2016. We booked two rooms on higher floor and to the back of the hotel. We got exactly what we had asked for , but after the first night my friends who had a beautiful big corner room found it to be a little noisy because of road traffic. We mentioned this at the front desk the next day and it was no problem at all to move them to another room. All rooms and balconies were fairly large , modern and clean, as was the overall whole hotel. Great pool area with bbq's and a convenient little shop that sold everything ! Lobby area was huge with comfortable lounges and seating with a nice cafe'. Hotel security was another one of those extra little things , at night security were at a desk watching people entering and exiting and you had to use your room card to enter the foyer and then the lifts to your room. Location was fantastic and close to everything yet far enough away from the noise and action on "Kuhio". The best part about this hotel is the friendly and more than helpfull staff , nothing was ever a problem. An example of this was when one of my friends had trouble with her phone and was wanting to contact home as her father was in hospital having an operation. The girl at the front desk actually let her use her personal phone , rang the number and passed it to her so she could talk to her family. I was amazed by the girls concern and help ! I have been to Hawaii many times and stayed in alot of different hotels , Aqua Skyline ticks all the boxes and for the price it would be the best hotel by far that I have ever stayed in. I will be seeing you again Skyline , hopefully very soon !
Aqua Skyline is a short walk away from the centre of Waikiki. Rooms were reasonable, air conditioning was quite loud, pool was great, it was nice to have a convenience store for emergency purchases. The hotel staff let us check in early which was very nice after a long-haul flight and travelling with a toddler. What was also good was that they have a free DVD-rental system, so this definitely came in handy with our little one.
I previously stayed at this hotel a year ago and there is no denying that the views you receive when booking a panoramic ocean view studio are second to none. However, I had provided some constructive feedback regarding my stay. Not often does a hotel care enough to follow up on feedback, but surprisingly Aqua Skyline at Island Colony did. Their hotel manager Brian Kovaloff promptly contacted me in response to my feedback, addressed the issues and requested I try the hotel again. Brian then promptly put me in touch with Guest Services Manager Marlon Henobio. Management clearly care about the reputation of their hotel and the satisfaction of their guests. I am so glad I gave this hotel another chance because my stay was superb. We received superior customer service and great level of communication. We visit Hawaii every year and will certainly be returning to this hotel. I can't thank management enough for making this trip one to remember. We also absolutely love this hotel, not only because of the amazing views, but the ease of access to transport, tours and shopping. Thanks Aqua Skyline for making our holiday just that, a holiday! The Aqua chain of hotels is definitely for us.
I arrived for a 6 day/5 night stay and was very disappointed. I got sick during my flight from Florida and arrived to an undesirable hotel. I had a weird feeling before my trip and thought I should change my hotel, but decided against it because maybe I was overthinking. I should have followed my first instinct. The hotel was not up to my standards. I booked this hotel based off the pictures and the few good reviews, but those pictures must have been taken over 10 years ago. The first room had a full kitchenette which would have been fine, but everything looked unclean, and the a/c unit gave no directions for turning it on. The curtain was broken so I couldn't even close it all the way and the tub was Nasty. I called the front desk and was told that I could move me to another room. Once I got into the second room, the sheets were spotted and nasty. I got a call from the front desk asking was it okay, I told him no and explained the sheets and again a nasty tub. He sent housekeeping who said that it looked fine and they should have changed the sheets, but she would. She left and I called Delta to find another hotel, I would not touch anything but the chair at the desk and the phone (probably what made me worse). The housekeeper came back up and only wanted to change the top sheet until I asked was she going to change all of them, she said it was new, well I looked at her funny and then she pulled off all the sheets, there were crumbs, possibly bugs, and hair on the sheets. I was DISGUSTED. I knew I could not stay there one night, let alone 5. Needless to say, Delta found another hotel close by and I left. To think they also charge $18.95 a day as a resort fee. I advise anyone to stay somewhere else, do not book this hotel.
My fiancée and I stayed here for 6 nights and had an amazing stay. We had an ocean view kitchenette on the 34th floor. The view was out of this world and the room was very modern, clean and tidy! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The internet wasn't working at the start but the staff were quick to fix this issue and get it working for us. Only a short walk to the beach, I think it's in a great location with shops and restaurants all around. I would definitely stay here again. The only negatives I have is that the aircon is way too loud and is hard to sleep with it on and there was no kettle to make a tea or coffee. Besides that, we had a great time!!
