Reviewed 8 January 2011

This hotel was reasonably priced and well within walking distance to Waikiki beach. We had a room at the front of the hotel though and found it very noisy throughout the whole of the night. The breakfast offered is also pretty poor, very basic and the breakfast room too small for the size of the hotel and its guests.

We rented three rooms for nine people total, one with the king bed and two with the double/ twin bed layout. It was one of the very few hotels in the area that we found that didn't charge extra for more than two people to a room. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and all in our party agreed...

I was pleasantly suprised by Aqua Aloha! For the price I wasn't expecting much, but I assumed wrongly. Aqua Aloha is bright and welcoming. The staff friendly and happy to help.

Fast free internet (much faster than the paid internet at the Hyatt down the street), free continental breakfast, clean rooms, comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff, close to the main shopping area and 5-10 minutes walk from the beach. The only minor issue was a noisy air-conditioner, but turning it off over night solved the problem. All in all, excellent...
