Rio Rancho, New Mexico
Reviewed 28 July 2010

This hotel exceeded my expectations. With the complimentary breakfast, clean and quiet room and the friendly and helpful staff lead me to highly recommend this hotel. The free 'Wired' internet connection in the rooms was a plus. The Manager's Reception on Tuesdays welcomed all guests in a true Hawaiian tradition.

Let me start off by saying that the customer service from the Aqua Aloha Surf and Spa is probably some of the best that I've ever had to deal with. Everyone from the front desk to the woman who cleaned our rooms, we're all very friendly. During the second day of our trip, one of my friends had dropped her...

Okay, the rooms may be small and the showers are really small but who stays in their rooms in Hawaii? Clean, simple hotel.

The Aqua Aloha Surf and Spa is a great place to stay in Waikiki. It's a short walk to the beach, but it's out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. The staff is so friendly and helpful and they make you feel right at home. The room was very comfortable and affordable. I would...

We had a nice stay at the hotel. The staff was helpful and service good. Breakfast is only from 7-8:30 in the morning. It's not anything special, but they make fresh pancakes for you. Parking can be expensive. At the hotel it's $20 a night, but we found free street parking about a 10 minute walk away. There's also $10...

This charming hotel was remarkably comfortable and relaxing. It is just small enough to offer that "boutique" hotel feeling, far beyond its affordable rates. The staff and management were exceptional;, always available without being overbearing, efficient and effective but calm and professional. The Aloha Spirit is alive and well at the Aqua, from Manager Tim Clark's warm and competent demeanor,...
