I wasn't in the mood to complain about our horrible stay when we got back. Until 10 minutes ago when I chequed my credit card statement and saw that they have charged my credit card 3 weeks after we got back. I prepaid our stay and there is absolutely no reason they should have charged us this extremely high fee....

Dear "Scottmoe66", As the hotel manager at the Aqua Aloha Surf & Spa, your feedback about our hotel and the idea that someone on my team may have posted an improper charge to your credit card concerned me a great deal. We take pride in conducting our business with integrity and professionalism. Any conduct that might not uphold that standard...

Honestly an Ok 3 star property. Booked over 6months before travel and had email contact with the Hotel reservations area from date of booking stating that I was travelling with 2 adults and 2 children (3 & 1yrs.) was told all along that "we love to have the Kids along at Aqua Hotels" and Kids stay free..

My husband and I stayed here for a week in mid- May 2010 and were extremely pleased. The rooms are small, but are well laid out so the size is not a problem. The hotel has been recently remodeled into a modern stylish look that makes it feel a step up from typical moderate priced chains. It is truly only...

We stayed here for one week and had a wonderful vacation! We were upgraded to a deluxe room which was very spacious and had a couch and coffee table and plenty of room for all our stuff. Previous hotels we've stayed at (Marine Surf and Maile Sky) had tiny rooms and we always felt very cramped. The bed and linens...

We have just returned to Australia after a wonderful holiday. This hotel's staff did everything possible to assist us in any we asked. The light breakfast, which is included in the tariff was great and we had a wonderful time at the Manager's reception. There is some street noise but it has to be expected if you want to stay...

We stayed here twice during our stopover to/from the Big Island. Both times we experienced friendly staff at the front desk during check-in. The first time we got a complimentary upgrade from a standard to a deluxe room. The second time we had made advance reservations via travelocity.com but the hotel didn't have us in their system. The hotel was...

We loved our stay here. We were on a tight budget, but still wanted a really nice stay. This hotel was perfect, only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The room was small, but there was enough space for us to relax and feel comfortable. It was very clean & there was a microwave & fridge with a set...

This hotel was completely adequate for our needs. We were just staying in Waikiki for a couple of days before driving to the North Shore. Its a very quick walk to the beach. The lobby was lovey, the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was small but comfortable. The sheets were soft and clean. We even had a mini-fridge! Breakfast...

I’ve stayed at the Aloha Surf a dozen times on business. The hotel was remodeled a few years ago. It is modern and stylish. The rooms are also nicely decorated. The upper rooms have a wet bar, micro, and frig. Parking is extra cost, and a limited number of stalls. Street parking is scarce and tricky. Phone before your trip...
