Aqua Waikiki Wave Honolulu Reviews

Great location but... Sep 04, 2012
First time going to Oahu, you can only imagine the research I did to find a good, "affordable" hotel in the center of Waikiki. I read about the Wave hotels and decided to give it a try. Everyone was very nice and helpful; there were only two things that turned me off; room doors and parking. Before moving on to my complaints I will tell you that we had a great stay overall. The market is just steps away from the hotel and there is always something happening at night. The beach was only about 3 blocks away, and so was the mall. Great restaurants and convenience stores everywhere! Moving on… When browsing for hotels I read a couple of reviews stating that the doors where shut too loud. Of course I was like "ah, who would really mind?" ah, I did. We were waking up fairly early every day, around 3 am or so, but we were also going to sleep fairly late. People coming in and out of their rooms were our worst nightmare. The door slams, every door, so if you are a light sleeper this is no bueno! Heck, even if your sleep is deep you're out of luck! The second complaint was parking. The garage right behind the hotel was great, if you were lucky enough to find parking. The hotel owns a partially done garage across from the main parking but that did not look safe. That type of garage has a name I can't think of right now, but you get out of your car and they drive the car into a lever and pull it up to the second & third floor. There was no staff before 7am. The day where we couldn't find parking and we needed to be out by 6am we parked in a 24hr parking garage about two buildings away from the hotel and the hotel staff adjusted the bill for the parking. Parking was $20.00 a day which wasn't as expensive as other hotels and a room with two beds, microwave, fridge, and balcony (the view is mainly of streets and other hotels) was ~$1,173.00 for six nights. I included the prices so you have an idea of how much it is in the month of August. Overall, I had a good time in Aqua Waikiki Wave and I will go back if the price isn’t beaten by surrounding hotels.

You get what you pay for with this hotel. My friend and I booked this hotel for a holiday in December 2010 because we (thought) we got a good deal. After arriving at the hotel, I was glad to know we didn't pay full price. The beds were average, as was the rest of the room. The noise outside is CONSTANT (the hotel even provides ear plugs). We found out on the last day that the hotel actually had a pool, however I didn't get a chance to see it. The hotel itself is a short walk away from the beach and close to shops and the outdoor market. If I went back to Honolulu I would pay a little extra and stay at a resort on the beach.

Couldn't agree more - the hotel isn't the greatest but like he said - you definitely get what you pay for!

Refurbished hotel in the heart of Waikiki Apr 22, 2009
With only 3 days to spend on Oahu we chose to stay at the Aqua Waikiki Wave as it was located in Waikiki, in the heart of the busy tourist area and close to the beach, shops, and restaurants.

The hotel is right next to the International Market and one block away from the main shopping/restaurant street. I had read some negative reviews that the location meant that some rooms were noisy. After a quick call to the hotel we book the rooms labeled as "Partial Ocean View Wave." The average price a night was $86 which was only slightly more than the basic rooms which were on the lower floors closer to the noise.

The Aqua Waikiki Wave has recently been refurbished and is nicely decorated. The staff were very helpful and very friendly except for those manning the concierge desk. The room was located on the 14th floor, just one below the top floor and included a flat screen TV with DVD player, a microwave, and a fridge.

The noise from the streets could be heard on the 14th floor but it was not too bad. The only negatives I have for this hotel is that the free wifi is very slow and the bathroom is small and parking was $25 a night.

If you want to be were all the action is in Waikiki then I would recommend this hotel for being clean and good value for money. I would choose to stay here again on my next visit to Oahu.

My first impression of Aqua Waikiki was probably not the best one. When we arrived at night in a shuttle, I first noticed the number of hookers/escorts and trashy clubs surrounding. The lobby was a bit tacky, run down, but all in all pretty clean. I was slightly doubtful of the room when the manager cheerfully handed us our key. AND.. was i wrong or what. The room we had was a corner room - massive, 1 queen sized bed and 1 king sized bed, a tv and a nice view of the city. We had a wonderful stay. :)
