Great place to stay!

The only down side to our stay was that the restaurant was closed for renovations. Close to everything you need. Everyone extremely friendly.

The aqua palms and spa is a wonderful place to stay. It's probably not the nicest hotel in the area, but for the price and location, it's hard to beat. We were able to use the Hilton facilities for everything except sleeping. The hotel is close enough to everything where we walked to 95% of the attractions we wanted to do. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The concierge was helpful for the most part. They are part of a travel agency so will try to get you to sign up for stuff, but so is every other concierge that we talked to.

This was our hotel in Oahu. It was average. We heard fire sirens all night long the 2 days we were there. We would not choose this place to stay again in Oahu.

Horrible!

Stayed a night at this property. The first room we were given smelled bad, a/c wasn’t blowing cold and there were stains on the bed sheets and carpet. Contacted the front desk and given an “upgraded” room. The “upgraded” room had stains on the carpet, curtains, & bedsheets. The lamp shade was torn and furniture worn. The bathtub was extremely horrible too! I’m a local resident and I will say I will never go back to this property!

Perfect little clean hotel

What a lovely experience here at this hotel. It is attached to the world famous Wailana Restaurant that is still up and running since I was a little girl. The staff here is amazingly friendly and helpful. Coffee, lemon water, apples available in the lobby area. Great for the hot summer days getting back from the beach and the cool evenings. The lotion, shampoo, conditioner is Hawaiian coconut scent. I just think the bed pillow is too bulky but for 3 nights, I can live with it. The room is spacious and the sleeper sofa is perfect for additional guests. Also, a DVD station in lobby. Fun past time to choose your own movie to watch after you get back to relax.

Average hotel

We booked a package holiday and our weeks stay in Hawaii had us staying at this hotel. The hotel is basic and quite dated however it was fine for what we needed - a bed to sleep after our busy days exploring the island. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant on site, just an iHop attached next door which we enjoyed. Our stay wasn’t bad but we’d probably choose somewhere different next time.

Average but no value for money

I booked our stay at the Aqua via Trip advisor. Specified 2 adults & 1 toddler. Paid just under $3k for 7 nights and the room was barely big enough for 1 adult let alone 3 people. No water was given, we had to drink from plastic cups in the lobby area. I travel a lot and stay in many hotels but never in my life have i stayed at a hotel that didnt give complimentary water in the room.. our linen was never changed in 7 days, i know because my daughter spilled some of her milk on the bed and it was still crusty on day 7. Even after asking housekeeping to change the linen nothing happened. Yes the hotel does offer beach chairs, towels to take to the beach plus the complimentary shuttle to the local malls etc, however that does not compensate for their short comings. There is no eatery in the hotel you have to eat at the ihop, or other places around meaning no room service. Lucky they do provide microwaves, so you can buy from other places and heat it up later. The draw for us was the proximity to the Hilton village, the shopping at the ala moana centre is about 5 mins drive, loads of shopping on kalukalau blvd too. The views of the other hotels look good from this one. Would i come back no- not in a million years!! Would i recomend - only to people who are desparate for somewhere to stay or want to flush money down the drain..

One of the better cheaper hotels in Honolulu

I have stayed here many times before. Always Clean and the front desk is always great. I have had a few problems with the showers in the rooms before, low pressure or not draining. But never anything that will cause major problems with my trip. Each room has a small refrigerator and bathroom come with toiletries you need other that a razor. Parking was $25 day the last time I stayed there (about the same as every other hotel in the area). They clean everyday, and the cleaning ladies do a great job.
