I arrived late last night with my 8 year old son. The hotel was fully booked and we were given our pre assigned room which was a studio with a partial kitchen. The room itself is ok but there is no extractor fan so when you cook the room smells of food! Our view is a huge wall and our...

Dear LondonGeorgia, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for allowing us to address the concerns brought forward. It is with disappointment and surprise that I learned of your dissatisfaction regarding your room accommodations. Unfortunately, due to high occupancy upon your arrival, optional rooms were limited. Had we known of your discomfort, we would had gladly...

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. Everyone on the hotel staff was simply amazing. They were so nice to us, loved playing with our little girl, and went out of their way to chat with us and make sure we were happy during our stay. The rooms are nice.... pretty spacious with a full kitchen...

They voluntarily upgraded our room for free. It is 2 blocks from the beach, but it still is calm. They allow you to bring your own drinks to the pool area which was awesome because it allowed us to have what we wanted. Staff is super nice and they really try to help you enjoy your stay. They have boogie...

I was dubious of the positive reviews on here--seemed to good to be true. They're not. This isn't paradise or perfection, but for folks who understand value and a great travel experience, I recommend this hotel. There was a problem with our room (plumbing) and the staff found a quick solution. And then an even better one. When they found...

The location is superb and there is great dining and shopping close by. The beach is a minute walk and in a wonderful location. We also stayed in two other...

Stayed here with my wife on our first trip to Waikiki. Stayed in a room with a little kitchen - very comfortable room. Good value - short walk to beach. Bus stop across the street.

A great little hotel in a great location! We have traveled all over the islands, and even keep a home in Maui, but have the need and want to travel to Honolulu every so often to enjoy the city and Waikiki. We seek out special places of special value, and we truly enjoyed our stay and were completely satisfied with...

We stayed at the Aqua Bamboo for 7 nights at the end of June. The service there was excellent and we enjoyed the little perks that came with a boutique hotel (free wi-fi, free local calling, complimentary juice & coffee all day). The staff were always very helpful and courteous. The rooms were a bit on the small side, but...

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Bamboo & Spa! The staff were wonderful from the time they opened the door till the time we were ready to leave. Our room was very clean although needs a little updating. The staff were second to none - so friendly and helpful. The pool area was well kept and very pleasant....
