I normally am not the type to leave reviews, but this hotel and my stay there was the worst experience! First things first, we call the hotel that morning(4/20/17) to make a reservation for that night, checking out on 4/21/17. It was a one night stay, thankfully, as we were traveling around the whole island. We get to the hotel...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 March 2017

I went back to Waikiki because it is my favorite place to vacation and get away. The weather is great, humidity is perfect and helps me breath easier, and the people at the Aqua Bamboo are always happy and helpful. I like to stay on the 12th floor, 1201, because it is quiet and has a great view of the...

I like Honolulu. It's safe, people are friendly & whilst some aspects are a bit expensive, tourists can get good value for $s spent. We were placed in Aqua Bamboo as part of our cruise package, and having previously used up to date TimeShare resorts in the city, this was rather sub-standard. The pool area was comfortable & secluded, but...

Disaster! Room 1205- on the 12th floor! Don’t stay there! Facing Kuhio- very noisy! Ask for a quieter room opposite the pool. Tiny reception area. You had to get a key to use the only one toilet outside in the pool area. The poolside pizza cafe sells 30” pizzas for $US30 at dinner time and you can bring your own...

Super close to beach, shopping strip and great eating places. No need to take beach equipment ie lilos, blow up tubes they can be purchased cheaply at the ABC stores.

We travelled with a group of 32 people to Hawaii and stayed 3 nights at the Aqua Bamboo. Although not a 5 star hotel it was a pleasant stay.

This place is located only few minutes from Waikiki Beach. There is bus stop just across the road. Rooms are well equipped with nice view. The staff is very nice and helpful. There is pool with salty water outside with nice garden seats. Coffee is free of charge! I do recommend this place.
