My huyband, myself and my 21 year old son stayed 5 nights at the APS in early July. I read the reviews from trip advisor before I booked this trip and was pleased with this hotel. The rooms are clean, equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker (mr. coffee style) It had free internet (hardwired, not wireless in...

I was very disappointed - I researched for a terribly long time for a hotel in Waikiki that was quiet. This was NOT it!!!! I thought I had made a good choice - but this room is right above the Children's pool - we woke up to kids screaming at 8am almost every day. I know this is beyond control...

This hotel was great! If you dont mind that there is no ocean view. Check in was fast, walked in and immediately attended to, and we were in our room in five minutes. The front desk staff were very helpful and very kind. The room was clean, the beds were very comfortable! We stayed in an updated room with a...

We stayed for 5 nights at Aqua Palms and Spa. We felt the hotel room was clean and adequate. We were able to control the temperature of the room quite easily, and the bathroom was again adequate. The location is very close to the Hilton and within a 5-10 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. We didn't use any room service...

We traveled to Honolulu from the east coast, a very long journey. Getting to the Aqua Palms was easy from the airport via shuttle. We were tired even tho it was only 6:30 HST. Upon arriving at the AP&S we were checked in in a fairly efficient manner. However, when we got to our room it was hardly the size...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and would never return. The rooms were not very clean, there were stains on the carpet and the sink leaked on the floor everytime the water would be turned on. It felt like we were staying at a "seedy" hotel.....I would compare the quality to a motel 6. The rooms definitely have...

We flew into Honolulu and stayed for just a couple of nights en route to our final destination on the Big Island. I found an outstanding deal on our room at Aqua Palms & Spa so I jumped on it. We paid for the "partial city view", which is exactly what we got. If we were staying longer I'd definitely...

Traveled to O'ahu for one night for a high school reunion. I booked the room for the night because of the location, the price, and the pillow top bed. I always stay at Aqua hotels because their staff is alway great and the prices are affordable. It was my first time at the Palms and Spa but definately not my...

This was a very average hotel in a great location. The rooms were a little outdated. The best thing about the room was the large flat screen TV and free internet access. We requested a double bed room and at check-in they only had rooms with queen beds available, however they were able to accomodate us the following night with...

Wonderful manager who greeted us with the Hawaiian welcoming spirit of the islands. The hotel was in a perfect location, convenient to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, excellent places to eat breakfast, and easy when you have a rental car. Loved the complimentary coffee as well! Nice touch.
