Big value at contemporary hotel in central Waikiki

The new Aqua Waikiki Pearl is a totally refreshed and upgraded boutique-size hotel featuring large rooms at a reasonable rate. The hotel is located on a mellow side street, less than two blocks from Waikiki Beach and the area's best shopping and dining. Book a suite with a fully-stocked kitchen to maximize your dollar. Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel is available and is included in the Hospitality Fee. Two pets up to 40 pounds each are welcome.

Aqua Waikiki Pearl offers a refreshing break from the revelry of Kalakaua Avenue. The hotel is situated in central-Waikiki on a quiet side street less than two blocks from the beach, shopping, dining and nightlife. The International Market Place souvenir bazaar is around the corner from the hotel.

A petite midrise hotel, Waikiki Pearl offers 135 fully-renovated, smartly-tailored island-decor rooms to match almost any budget. Standard rooms start at 195 square feet and superior rooms jump to 451 square feet, accommodating up to four people. All accommodations have private balcony, except for standard rooms. One-, two- and three-bedroom suites feature full kitchens that include dishes and utensils.

Dining

Hang out at Legends sports bar in the hotel lobby with satellite TVs. Grab coffee and a croissant at Starbucks, adjacent to the hotel. Chili's is within a block, and countless other small and large eateries are within a 4-block radius.

Horrible

The parking situation was a horror and cost $42 per night (12 stalls only). The room AC blowing into your face. You can hear everyone's doors open and closed. The bath sink was too high for short people and clogged up / slow drainage. Worst experience in Waikiki ever in 30 years.

Aqua Waikiki Pearl

The location of the hotel was good but that is the only truly posative thing I have to say about the hotel. the rooms were small and had no view. the family got bug bites from the room. housekeeping didnt even follow their own recommendations on the towel useage. the parking situation was unacceptable. we paid for parking on site and were turfed to a location 2 blocks from the hotel most nights

Great rooms at a great price

Very nicely renovated rooms and it was large and we could see the ocean from our balcony.The staff was very nice and helpful.Very close to many ammenities.The only down fall that I found was that in the early hours the vehicle noise on the road esp.the (harleys) could be heard like our windows were open which they weren't .No pool but not hard to find someplace to swim in Hawaii.

ran down

Aqua Hotel should be rated only "one star" or less. Thef first room they gave us their bed sheets had stains all over it, I found bed a bug on the bug and few flies all over the lamp. AND their carpet was dirty too. My daughter was afraid to sleep in that room. I was tempted to check in to another hotel but since we already paid for it. There was no way they would give us a refund. We went back to the lobby to complain. Good that the front desk gave us another room.

Great Family Get away

It is difficult to find accommodations for a family of 5 but the Aqua Pearl did it well with a two bedroom studio and kitchette. Very clean and spacious and the help at the front desk was very welcoming and exceptionally helpful. We were very happy with the accommodations.

weekend family getaway

Location! That, along with the super friendly staff is what makes this hotel a great stay for the value! A few blocks around the corner and you'll find yourself in the international food market. A few streets down and you'll be burying your feet in Waikiki Beach! Every morning you'll be greeted by friendly front desk staff. The room was pretty average, nothing spectacular. The room was clean everytime we got back to the hotel. No breakfast and no swimming pool, but a great value if all you need is a place to stay for a few days.
