Great Value

The Aqua Aloha Surf Hotel was a great value for the money. The room was surprisingly spacious. The bathroom was a little small but it worked for what we needed. The staff was extremely helpful whenever we needed them, answering all of our questions and giving directions. The hotel was within walking distance to all we needed. It was located just a few blocks from the beach and many restaurants and shopping.

The beach was only about three blocks away. The Waikiki Shell was a bit further of a walk but still doable.

very nice hotel

the aqua aloha surf hotel is off the main strip but close enough to walk to everything in waikiki. the distance from waikiki means quiet at night, a little peace of mind after a hectic day. it's a nice hotel with a friendly staff. this was a pleasant surprise since i didn't realize when i booked this room that i had stayed at the hotel before. i'd definitely stay there again.

Good Value for the price

The Aqua Aloha Surf is a good value for its price. The room was clean and the bed felt good after a long day of sightseeing. For those of you who only spent time in your room to sleep because you are out and about spending the extra cash you saved on your room, this hotel is the place for you. Two blocks from Waikiki beach and the International Market Place, my favorite places to go. The staff is friendly and I plan to stay there again on my next trip.

Good Place for Money

I stayed in this hotel from June 6th to June 10th for 4 days. It was a nice stay. We were two people. The room is very much comfortable for two. The hotel is very close to famous Waikiki beach and Bus stop. The shopping center is very near. You find lot of ABC stores where one can buy all the groceries required. I have taken a superior room, it has got small refrigerator, Microwave and free internet browsing. The hotel lobby is very good. The contenental breakfast was Ok. They have given muffin, Doughnet, fruits and juices for the breakfast. The only problem is the car parking. They charge $15 per day. But i have taken car for only a day to visit Hanauma Bay and North shore other car is not neccessary in Honolulu. Bus facility in Honolulu is very good.

My review of Aqua Aloha Surf Hotel

The Aqua Aloha Surf Hotel is a great find! Room was very clean and well maintained with confortable bed. Staff was exceptionaly frendly and helpful and worked with us to find a parking spot the first night before they were able to provide a reservation for subsequent nights at their somwhat limited parking garage. Easy walk to beach (two blocks), nearby good and fast food restaurants and the local tour bus pickup location. Some street noise at night, but that is typical of entire area.

If you wish a larger breakfast than the continental provided by the hotel, there is a great place for breakfast about a block from the hotel towards the beach on the same, hotel, side of the street. We also enjoyed dinner here one night.
