Such a beautiful hotel. Close to shopping and places to eat. Staff was very professional and always willing to assist with anything. Rooms are clean and neat and appeared to be recently renovated. Rooms have icebox and microwave and flat screen wall mounted tv's.

I was exhausted from long flight from Singapore and spontaneouly decided to stay in Honolulu. I was concerned Waikiki was going to be very pricey, but this place was $89 (tax inclusive) and was great. It's within walking distance to everything, has pool, good room amenities and VERY friendly staff! Only suggestion I have is to not get a room...

We stayed three nights at the Aqua Palms & Spa hotel and really enjoyed it. The room was somehow small but really clean. The furniture was fairly recent. The room was equipped with a flat screen tv and with free internet access, this last one being a huge advantage to keep in touch with the rest of the world. The...

Overall stay was great; very good value for the price we paid. One thing that I didn't like was a little bug that was running around the bed when we just came in. I didn't let it bother me too much; it's something that could happen anywhere. The employees were all very friendly and even had a huge basket of...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Aqua Palms & Spa for 10 days and we were very happy to walk into our room on the first day and see that we were upgraded.

I was travelling with a friend and during booking we could not choose our room type. We asked the hotel if we could have a room with 2 queen size beds. The hotel fulfilled our request and for that we where really happy. The service was always good and very polite. The hotel staff helped us with everything from booking...

For two and a half weeks in January 2010, we stayed at the “Aqua Palms and Spa Hotel” in Waikiki and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our accommodation was the “partial city view” which we enjoyed when sitting on our lanai. Although the décor of the room was a little “tired” it was clean and quiet and had a comfortable new...

Travel Zoo web site offerred an unbelievable bargain for a Waikiki hotel. Newly remodeled rooms with huge hi def TV, microwave, refrigerator, and bathroom amenities. Staff were very accomodating and we really appreciated the maids asking if we needed service. Two of our four days we only needed coffee refills. Certainly saves the environment with no need for clean towels...
