This little gem has to be one of Waikiki's best kept secrets. The place personifies the spirit of "Aloha". Keolo, Cecelia, Venus and Stella are just some of the fabulous staff who looked after my every need and delivered service the way the industry used to - with panache and grace. Upgrading to a suite - the standard is definitely...

My husband an I stayed the Aqua Palms Hotel for an extended time. We found everyone to be wonderfully nice. Norie, our room attendant, was so caring and went out of her way to assist us in any way she could. She made us feel like we were part of the family. The weekly parties that the hotel hosts are...

The location is across the street from the Hilton, which is very convenient because lots of tours leave from the Hilton (like the Polynesian Cultural Center tour). Aqua Palms is a 5 minute walk from the Ala Moana beach, and a 20 minutes walk from the Waikiki beach. It's close enough to get to the main strip of Waikiki, but...

You have got to check this place out! The rooms are so clean and spacious. You just can't ask for more. I know this because I'm a local resident of Hawaii and I've stayed everywhere here. Seriously for the cost you get so much plus you're so close to Ala Moana shopping center you can walk there in ten minutes....

I wondered if Aqua Palms needed yet another glowing review, but it was SO GOOD I felt I had to gush a bit. The thing is, Aqua Palms did what no other hotel in my experience had done before: made me feel 100% welcomed, 100% valued and 100% at home. Wow. And for so little! I would be honoured to...

Could not check in until exactly 3:00. We were traveling for business with enormous bags - hotel did not have self service luggage carts - we were at their mercy - they would bring the bags up. We were anxious to get to the beach BUT we waited for over an hour for our bags. They have beach towels but...

The staff at the Aqua Palms was very professional and helpful. My stay with Aqua superceeds any Hilton or Sheraton. The Front Office manager, Keola takes guest service to another level and his staff follows in his footsteps. The location is perfect as I attended a convention at the convention center which is just a 10 minute walk away. This...

Well, we booked this hotel based on not only value but the positive reviews we read on both Trip Advisor and Expedia. I am wondering if we stayed at the same hotel. Check in was smooth and staff was friendly. The problems arose when we actually arrived to our room which was quite run down and smelled extremely musty. The...

We have got via their web page very good price (65 usd per room) and were bit suspicious but the hotel was very nice, clean and well located at the beginning of Waikiki which is about 15-20 of nice walk. Just 5 min is the biggest shopping mall in Honolulu. In front of the hotel is bus stop (easy to...
