          A very nice hotel in a good location close to Waikiki beach. The room was lot bigger than I thought it would be and the staff very helpful and friendly and indeed on the first day we were recommended to a superb restaurant! Only fault would be that there was a construction crew working on one side of the hotel.

          Aqua Still Needs Work


          Very nice location in Waikiki. About four blocks from the beach and one block from the International Market. The rooms are neat but very basic. We had constant problems with water pressure and temperature in the bathroom. Door locks do not work very well. We had to repeatedly use key card to open the door. One room door would not stay closed and dead bolt lock was broken. The rooms had no hotel information books. There was no info on how to use the phone, what amenities the hotel offered, etc. The air conditioner had two settings - high and off.

          What a difference!


          I've seen this hotel when it was previously managed by a different company. They've recently changed management companies and completely renovated the hotel. What a difference a renovation makes! The lobby and hallways are bright and inviting. Furniture and fixtures are new, with nice flat screen TVs in the room. I really appreciated having complimentary wireless internet access, a great help when there for business. The location, while not ocean front, is very convenient...centrally located, within walking distance to almost anywhere in Waikiki. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating, from the front desk clerk (Frank) to the maintenance man who installed my DVD player (Rick) to the overnight clerk (Joseph) and the Security Guard (sorry, didn't get his name) they all made me feel welcomed and ensured that I was comfortable. I felt very well taken care of. I must say I'm impressed with the job that Aqua has done in turning that property around. Great deal for a reasonable price. I will definately return.

          Great Hotel in the HEART of Waikiki


          I had a wonderful stay at the Aqua Waikiki Wave. There are renovations all over this hotel. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and the friendly staff was full of Aloha. Once you step outside you are right in the middle of all the action in Waikiki. I did have a hard time finding it because the hotel sign is pretty small. It is right across the street from Jack in the Box on Kuhio, and has a 7/11 right next door. I will certainly be coming back to the Aqua Waikiki Wave when I am back in town.

          Wonderful little hotel


          I found the Aqua Waikiki Wave rejuvenated, clean, stylish. Those who work there, from front desk to housekeepers to maintenance, were very friendly and helpful. You definitely get the feeling they take great pride in their new little diamond in the midst of Waikiki.

          This is a great little property for price and location.

          Not bad but some problems


          dont be fooled by hotwire and travelocity, they rip you, when I went to see how much this hotel was travelocity quoted 107$ plus fees. But when I called them directly it was 99$. Small savings but savings nonetheless.

          The hotel is nice, but still with construction going on.

          The first rooom we had was over the nightclub so we asked to be moved and they promptly did so. But the staff are rude mainly the women. She just threw the keys at me.

          Thee rooms are nice and newly remodelled. wireless free internet was great. The TV is too small, but your not in waikiki to watch TV.

          The shower hot. The beds i found comfy. But they provide you with such a thin blanket, even with no aircon I was cold.

          Price and location cant be beat. Stafff needs improvement in customer service. Big Chinese restaurant downstairs.

          Good Deal. I heard also stay away from aqua palms unless your a jjunkie in need of a fix.

          Loved the Wave!


          I definitely recommend staying at the Aqua Wave. We had such a great time. The hotel was very clean, the staff was super friendly and they are in a great location. Our room was awsome and we had a great view. If you like being in the middle of all the action, then this is the place! I'll definitely be back. Thanks to everyone at the Aqua Wave for making our stay memorable and fun!

          Great hotel with new rooms and wonderful service.


          This is a great property! Stayed here 8 nights from 18th sep-26th and had a great experience from beginning to end.

          The newly renovated rooms are very large and very clean with comfortable beds and has a very modern feel. The staff was wonderful and everyone from front desk, housekeeping and maintenance were always very attentative, friendly and helpful with any requests.

          Location also great. The beach is just a few minutes walk and shopping, restaurants and nightlife are very close.

          We would definetly stay here again and as a t travel Professional I highly recommend it and feel great booking my clients here! In terms of value, service and location this is a great hotel.

          We had to be up early today to catch the flight to Hawaii at 8:30 and had a taxi booked at 6am to take us from the hotel to the airport which was kindly organised by the clerk at reception. Typically there was a problem when checking in my luggage as due to all the gifts that I had accumulated over the trip meant that my bag was over the allowed …

          What's been going on

          Thursday we went to camp as usual and then we made plans to go to the beach for the first time that night. We got done with camp early so we got back to the hotel at 3 but we were waiting for the last person at camp to arrive from the airport. He didn't get in until 6 or 6:30 so we were not able to leave until 7:30. We decided to go to the pool ...
