I am just coming back from four days at the Aqua Pearl. For what it costed me ($78 per day + taxes) I could not have expected more in overpriced Waikiki. Late night receptionist was very polite and helpful. She gave me a high floor room, which was spacious and clean (even though a few refurbishments won't be a bad...

The hotel location is good and the price was reasonable. I was relieved that there were no signs of cockroaches in my room after reading some of the reviews on here! In saying that, I can't say I enjoyed staying here. The room was a bit dungeon-y - a small, dark box with a tiny window that was too high...

We stayed here in 2013 and found it great. Location wise was excellent and the size of the room was spacious for what we needed. There is onsite coin laundry service which we used & found helpful to have on-site. Coming back here in 2017 we were less than impressed. We only stayed two nights as everything about the room...

Disgusting. We booked only one night to stay in Waikiki with my girlfriend. There were cockroaches and little bugs everywhere. They wouldn't give us our money back. Should be closed. Also charged 30 dollars for parking. Book another place.

The staff was great to work with but the rooms were nasty. Declined two rooms due to awful stains on the carpet and cockroaches in the first room. Third room was cleaner but still had bad stains even after being cleaned the day before we arrived. The sliding glass doors were very hard to open and close. Shower head needed...

The hotel is in the heart of Waikiki. It's on a busy street in the morning well most of the day so the noise can be a bit of a problem period but the hotel is been thoughtful and giving you ear plugs. I was wondering what they were for in the beginning because in the daytime you don't notice...
