This hotel is absolutely great for those who want to be close to the action and beach without the high cost. Yes the rooms are a bit dated however it is very clean and had everything you need. Every employee we encountered was very friendly and happy to help.

Location is perfect, about 2 blocks from the beach. A little noisy at night due to cars and motorcycles (maybe higher floors are better - I was on the 8th floor) Huge room, very comfortable, with a kitchen (microwave, fridge, stove, dishes, pots and pans, just everything!) so you can buy things at the ABC stores and have breakfast in...

Booked the aqua pacific monarch for a one night stay in Waikiki before heading to the big island for 4 nights. Great rooms. Very close to Waikiki beach and entertainment and foods. Shuttles to activities available and shuttle to Pearl Harbor. Good reasonably priced stay! Our room had Great views of the ocean, city and mountains!

This is the perfect place to stay for those who want a great location on Waikiki without having to pay a fortune. We asked for beach views and kitchenette which we got. Very clean, great service from the front desk and literally a two minute walk to the beach, shops and restaurants.

We could not have picked a better place. We really had to rely on reviews for our first visit to Hawaii. We selected this place because it had a kitchenette and we were glad we did. It was very convenient to have some place to have breakfast or an afternoon snack. We had seen some negative comments online about the... More

Our room had a balcony , lovely to sit there and catch the afternoon breeze with a drink and some nibbles. Very quiet room, comfortable bed, and perfect kitchenette. Just a couple of minutes walk to Waikiki. Close to an excellent shopping centre. Bus going past the door. I'd go back there any day!

We stayed 10 nights in the Aqua Pacific Monarch. The staff were all very nice and knowledgeable (especially Daniel) except for a little mix up at the beginning when we were told we would have to pay the resort fee and I had already paid it in my original booking, but this got sorted swiftly.

Stayed in a 31st floor condo at this mixed use hotel. Had a view of both the mountains and the sea, which was nice. The hotel itself is probably 3 star at best - basic facilities and reasonably clean. However it's a great price, and it's only a couple of blocks from the beach. The Korean cafe across from the...
