The best part of the hotel is its location. Right in the middle of the shopping craziness and close to the beach. Staying in Waikiki is expensive and though this hotel can do better when it comes to facilities and rooms, it is okay for the price. The breakfast can improve... options are too limited.

Very reasonable deal for a great location and newly renovated room with modern design and very clean. Staff is very friendly and with this reasonable price includes simple breakfast. Shuttle service between airport is also available at $16. I choose this hotel every time when I go Waikiki. If parking was free for the guest would be really helpful as... More

I stayed at the Aqua Oasis previously known as the Joy Hotel. The staff was amazing really showed me the aloha spirit. The hotel was on the smaller scale but the rooms were real nice and the location was superb. Bottomline what the hotel lacked in size was made up by the awesome staff and aloha spirit. Especially, the staff... More

You guys did an amazing job. We booked a 2 twin bed suite and upon having it unavailable we were bumped up to the penthouse suite. Very happy with the service and customer care. Will be back in future.

Just off the main strip, the Aqua Oasis is within walking distance of everything in Waikiki, including the beach. The staff were very friendly with great recommendations for things to see and do. The price was reasonable too.

Very comfortable and well located to walk and get the feel of the place. Staff very pleasant and room very comfortable and clean. Construction of new apartments nearby but did not worry us just spoilt the view a little. Would happily recommend for a short stay. Pool only small but beach not far away.

The room is large with lots of amenities. Just a couple of blocks off the beach...away from all the commotion of Kalakaua Avenue. Yasu at the Front Desk is especially kind and helpful. He even ran our Boarding Passes for us when we checked out!
