We travelled with a group of 32 people to Hawaii and stayed 3 nights at the Aqua Bamboo. Although not a 5 star hotel it was a pleasant stay. The staff was very helpful and the location was a short walk to Waikiki beach. Having the ability to make breakfast in the room was a plus. We would recommend this...

This place is located only few minutes from Waikiki Beach. There is bus stop just across the road. Rooms are well equipped with nice view. The staff is very nice and helpful. There is pool with salty water outside with nice garden seats. Coffee is free of charge! I do recommend this place.

I went back to Waikiki because it is my favorite place to vacation and get away. The weather is great, humidity is perfect and helps me breath easier, and the people at the Aqua Bamboo are always happy and helpful.

We had a nice 2 night stay at Bamboo. While the rooms are a bit dated, the location and staff can't be beat. The front desk employees were incredibly helpful and kind. We enjoyed Bamboozle on Thursday night by the pool, and took quick walks to the beach and dinner both days.
