Good hotel for the money

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, convenient location
Cons: Carpet needs to be replaced.
Location: On busy Ala Moana Blvd., convenient to beaches, other hotels, and restaurants. Close to Ala Moana shopping center.
Aqua Palms is an older hotel which has kept its original charm. No bells and whistles, but a clean room, friendly staff and adjoining parking. Convenient location. A bit noisy with the morning traffic and other activities, but the interior was quiet. No loud parties at all hours. Carpet could use a redo. If they shampoo it one more time, they're liable to hit flooring. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was miniature but very adequate.

Extremely close to the beach, great location

Posted Jul 7, 2014
This hotel was very close to the beach, and about a 10-15 minute walk to the Royal Hawaiian shopping mall and Ala Moana mall. There was also a trolley that stopped right at the hotel, which made getting around easy as well. The hotel itself was very nice, the rooms were very clean and quite spacious, and the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely hotel near beach

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: I loved the aqua colour theme and clean beach towels as needed, I appreciated the smiling staff and efficient storage of my luggage after check-out.
Cons: Metal chairs really hard to move and insufficient room between desk and bed to leave chair out. Lanai doors locked so no tropical air or night views.
Location: Excellent situation 1 block from beach, easy walk to lovely beachfront restaurants, shops and water activities and Ala Moana Centre.
I was really happy with the location of Aqua Palms, towards the yacht harbour end of Waikiki where it is more peaceful and less crowded than the centre of Waikiki. The staff were smiling and helpful which enhances your experience especially when you are travelling alone like me. I enjoyed not needing a car, an entertaining trolley ride took me from the door anywhere too far to walk such as the Aquarium and Diamond Head. It was great being a few minutes walk to the beautiful beach, shops and eateries and being surrrounded by warm, fragrant air day and night. You can exchange your Aqua Palms beach towel as needed for a clean one, which is a great system. I especially enjoyed watching Hawaiian hula dancing and singing and eating fresh tropical food

A very nice and cute hotel with helpful staff

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Staff; Service; Hospitality;
Cons: Perhaps renovate the elevator? It is not security mended, anyone (including non-hotel guests) can get in.
Location: Ala Moana Shopping Centre is just a 13 mins walk. Also a 15 mins walk to the main Kalakaua Ave where all the luxury brands and local boutiques are.
We stayed with Aqua Palms Waikiki for 10 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed every stay of it. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Although the condition of the hotel itself is a little bit old fashioned but our room was always clean and comfortable. Hotel provides free in-room WiFi, which is definitely an advantage for international travellers!!!! The hotel also provides free fruits at the main desk and complimentary beach amenities. There is an Expedia concierge desk and the lady Malia there was sooooooo friendly and helpful, she arranged our entire stay with wonderful tours but also gave us free time to enjoy the beach. I cannot thank enough of all the staff at Aqua Palms Waikiki, highly recommend everyone staying there and experience the true Hawaiian hospitality!

Request a balcony

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: Location, price
2-night stay was booked as Deluxe Diamond Head view. Room was large, clean and comfortable but had no balcony and primary view was an elevator shaft. Diamond Head was visible if you stretched over the railing.
