This hotel met my expectations. The pros: great price! We paid $69 for a Diamond Head view (I would call it less than partial view however). Staff is friendly and helpful. Bed is very comfortable and the room gets really dark at night (perfect). Clean. The cons: Furniture is dated. I don't think the location is as great as some...

The service was great from start to finish. The room was very clean, had a comfortable bed. The room included internet and a great view. I wish the internet was wireless and I wish the room was a little bit bigger. The location was great. The beach, restaurants, and shopping were all in walking distance. Also paying $20 per day...

Stayed one week. Room overlooked the busy Ala Moana Blvd. with balcony, table and chairs with a small view of the ocean. Located right across from the mammoth "Hilton Hawaiian Village" through which we strolled to get to the beach a block or two away. Shops and restaurants nearby, bus stop right out front. Room had microwave, fridge, coffee pot,...

Internet free of charge. 42" flat panel TV. Kitchenette with a microwave and very adequate size refrigerator in every room. Occasional entertainment and free wine in the lobby. Thanks to my room attendant, Francisca, everything in the room sparkled during my 16 days of stay. In short, Aqua Palms & Spa is superbly run hotel. My compliments go the hotel...

Our first experience with Aqua Resorts was 26 days at the Aqua Palms and Spa. It was a wonderful value for a clean, comfortable hotel in a great location. However, the thing that made our visit a fabulous experience was the kindness, friendliness, and professionalism of the entire staff. Everyonwas great, but several stood out. They were Kuhealani, Nicole, Berna,...

Everything was pretty good about the hotel, but it's true that you don't get any free breakfast. Another thing I found is that parking is not cheap @ $20/night. We did some research and found a parking lot at Hobron & Lipeepee, and it only costs $52 for the whole week. It's a 5 min walk from the hotel and...

We have stayed at the Aqua Palms 3 times in the last 5 years. It's a nice, reasonably-priced hotel with great service. We arrived 4 or 5 hours before check-in time. They suggested we store our luggage, gave us beach towels and after a few hours of snorkeling we were in our nice cool room. The front desk staff is...

As we hadn't been to Hawaii for several years, we expected Honolulu to be quite expensive we were apprehensive because of the low cost of this hotel. We had been warned that many of the hotels there are old and outdated. The first impression was that it looked quite nice and the staff were very friendly. We had paid extra...

It's a nice lttle hotel near the beach. The rooms are functional but the bed was great and the TV was huge. There's also a lttle fridge. The hotel is not on the beach but we actually had a bit of sea view. There's also a small swimming pool on the sun deck where the deck chairs need renewal. Breakfast...

This was our 2nd stay at the Palms in 8 months. On our previous stay the continental breakfast did exist, but not anymore, you must pay for it now. The elevators we found slow this time as there were so many people who stayed on the lower floors using them. We were on the 5th floor last time and ran...
