Aqua Waikiki Pearl isn't the fanciest hotel in Waikiki, but it was fine for my recent stay. This hotel is off the main street in Waikiki and still convenient to the beach and the shops. All of the employees were friendly and ready to help. My room was on the top floor - spacious and comfortable with a sunny balcony....

We stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was great. This is not a 5 Star Resort-like hotel, so if that's what you are looking for, this is not the place for you (and you won't find such perfection and ammenities for the rates charged at the Pearl). When we booked this hotel, I set reasonable expectations. This is...

Aloha Kerry, Mahalo for posting a review for us! You are absolutely right, if travelers are looking for a resort type hotel to lounge in all day, we do not have the amenities to meet expectation and they would be disappointed.

We stayed 3 nights and we had no major complaints besides the noise from other guest slamming their doors and no pool. this is a motel style hotel... the kind where you walk down a outdoor hallway to get to your room.

Not the best place to stay. Rooms and building were old and poorly kept. Stains on carpet, walls and run down basic furnishings. Wifi access was only avaliable in tiny hotel lobby.

Staying at the Aqua Waikiki Pearl has been a wonderful experience. The hotel is centrally located in Waikiki. Restaurants, stores, and all kinds of entertainment, including Waikiki Beach, are within walking distance. The hotel is also very clean. It has a laundry for the guest’s convenience. The staff members are extremely friendly, especially Lucena. She is very kind and professional.

My friend and I stayed at the Aqua Pearl in July 2012. It is a good place to stay if you are looking for someone to sleep in between busy days seeing the area! But it is not a resort style hotel and would not be good if you are looking to relax by the pool (it doesn't have one!)....
