Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel

The hotel was very nice and exactly what we wanted. Clean, large room, 2 balconies (we didn't even request a balcony, so that was nice!), all the features we expected and everything worked fine. The hotel staff was professional and courteous, very friendly and helpful. The desk clerks, the concierge, and the housekeeping staff were great. The hotel is a short walk from Waikiki beach. The International Market Place is right beside the hotel. We enjoyed shopping there several times. We liked the location for shopping and restaurants. There are dozens of fine restaurants in walking distance.

Perfect location to everything

The Aqua Wave was not luxurious but it is very nice and location was perfect to everything we wanted to do. It has two very nice gift shops and a very good Chinese restaruant. Next door is a very nice and friendly restaruant and bar called The Big Kahuna. Food is delicious. On the other side, is the International Market Center. It is 10 minutes to the beach and shuttles will pick you up in front of hotel or down the street one block. The people were extremely nice and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Very nice friendly, helpful staff

Very nice friendly, helpful staff members, clean, tidy, gym would need a little upgrade. Higher floor recommended for the little noise coming thorough the neighbouring night-clubs. Would recommend and would stay there again.

Worst hotel experience

The hotel was the worst hotel we have stayed in. Parking was a nightmare. The hotel charges $20 per day and they only have 12 parking spots??? At night there is no way you could find a spot. Rooms are not bad. Swimming pool is the size of a bathtub. Front desk staff are very rude and make you feel like you owe them just because the weather is good. Right outside the hotel enterance, all drug deals and prostitution are taking place starting 8 pm. The city view of the room was the roof of the utility level. Everything you want to change is an upgrade. Over all we would never go back to such a hotel again.

Good location, good value

Picked up at the hotel for Circle Tour and Pearl Harbor tour. Rooms were clean and fresh looking. The rooms had been updated with a flat screen TV. Hotel was walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the beach.

Unbeatable location for the price

The room and location was great for the price. The only problem was the noise from the street. The hotel is located on a main street and the young party-goers are out until 4am or so shouting in the streets. Needed to leave the tv on all night in order to stay asleep.

Great hotel for the price

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the beach, restaurants, and shopping in Waikiki. It did not disappoint. Everything was within walking distance. The hotel staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were very clean. The only downfall was the noise level. It is very close to all the bars, which can be a good or bad thing. We were on the 10th floor and the noise could still be easily heard. The hotel provides ear plugs for you so they are trying. We both slept well in spite of the noise. Overall i was happy with the hotel. I recommend trying to get a room on a higher floor and on the west side of the hotel. I would stay here again.

The breakfast food on the strip by the beach is a lot cheaper than the ones by the hotel. The IHOP by the hotel is charging almost $20 for an omelet.Its worth it to walk and find something better, and cheaper.

Would recommend for families as

Would recommend for families as 2 x queen beds in most rooms and ample space to stretch out. Bathrooms clean and staff helpful. Noisy at night but you are in the middle of Waikiki.
