Stayed May 6 for one night in one of their remodeled rooms. Very nice room and amenities. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, etc,. and very nice toiletries and shower in the bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was okay, plenty to eat and the coffee was good. Juice could be improved as it was drink mix not real juice. Short walk...

Aqua Aloha Surf is located 3 blocks from Waikiki Beach and close to everything, but far enough away that you are not disturbed by the Night Clubs. Breakfast is included and a great way to start your day. Staff is friendly and attentive, there is a pool, exercise equipment and excursion desk on site. They also have a shuttle to...

Just spent a week in beautiful downtown location, and central to everything. Included full buffet breakfast, so great way to load up before your busy day. Nice view from our lanai, out over the Ali Wai Canal in one direction, and down to Waikiki beach in the other. Staff were great & quick to provide service, from the front desk,...

Stayed at the hotel for 4 days as part of a multi city trip. Disappointed...rooms are outdated and dont expect a garden view, if your booking states it. All you get is the view of apartments. When it comes to the breakfast, dont except a wide variety. It will suit you if you are from Japan. Location is good....only a...

Duplicate billing. As a fact, accommodation fee was directly charged to my card one month later even though we used a package tour and already paid to travel company. This direct charging was done without pre-information from this hotel. Up to now, the detailed statement has not been disclosed yet. If we stay at this hotel using a package tour,...

Queen bed room on 8th floor. Bathroom facilities a bit worn but otherwise room spotlessly clean and with a neat little kitchenette, which came in very handy for doing our own breakfast as the continental provided by the Asian restaurant on site was simply dreadful. Very easy walk to the local supermarket and the beach. Would go back to this...
