You know, a hotel with 740 rooms takes in a lot of cash in a resort like Waikiki Beach, Even if it's a condo type of operation there's still plenty of money for the management company to keep the property spic and span, but the downside of a condo operation is that nobody wants to spend that type of money, neither the management company nor the owners. It's not like the Hyatt or the Sheraton where they have entire departments looking after guest satisfaction. So what you get is this type of animal, where nobody really cares as long as they get their income from it. It's like living in a condo yourself ; if the condo management council wants to upgrade, they have to raise an assessment and nobody wants to pay. This is obviously what's happening with this place, it could be so much better if it was run as as a hotel but that's not going to happen. I enjoyed my stay but my comments below will flesh things out. Everything is dated from the 70's and the pool wouldn't be out of place in one of those minimum security prisons. The water was cold and I could have got more agitation out of the jacuzzi if I used a swizzle stick! Don't expect a Hawaiian type welcome when you check in, it's just a vertical motel, the staff aren't paid to put on any form of show and so they don't. They're very pleasant people but they're like Government employees, they just do what's necessary to make sure you get settled in. But for $150 a night at an all inclusive posh resort in Mexico or Spain you get ten times the value, plus a warm pool and nightly entertainment (and food). You can't put that down to low wages in those countries, as I'm sure the hotel staff here in Hawaii are at the bottom of the scale too. There's two other things that are off-putting about this place . The first being that the reception area has all of the atmosphere of a Greyhound Bus Terminal, it's dated , forlorn and the furniture could have come straight from the Thrift Store, just sitting on it makes you feel a bit icky. The fact that the cafe is closed adds to a general impression of neglect, you feel like making a bid for the kitchen equipment The second one is the imposition of the daily "amenities fee" something that the profiteers dreamed up in Vegas that has spread like a virus to Hawaii. Why should I pay an extra $20 a day for stuff that should be the bread and butter service of a resort hotel? It's imposed like a ransom fee at check in (cash only) and if you don't want to pay it, then sleep next to the hobos on the Waikiki beachfront ! Include it in the overall price for goodness sake! ( they probably can't do it because of the condo nature of the ownership- each room has a separate wifi access code) Despite all of these shortcomings it's still not a bad place to stay, the housekeeping staff did a good job, the sentry/receptionists at the front desk were very nice, if a little lacking in tourism skills and I'll have happy memories of staying there. With a little bit of dynamism from Aqua's management strategy this could be a much better place, for very little outlay they could spruce up the reception and pool areas and they could get away with charging a little bit more , everybody could be happier , staff, management AND guests Collapse

Considering the price you pay this hotel was great. Nothing fancy but rooms were a decent size, room was clean and bed was comfortable. I had a decent balcony with nice views back to the mountains. Much quieter than an expensive beachfront place I stayed at. Two easily walked blocks to the beach. My brother and his fiancé were upgraded to a beach facing room and had the most amazing view. Looked out over the whole of Waikiki (well a lot of it). My only issue was my shower had a really low shower head. I at 5'9 only just fit under the shower head, my brother hopped in as a joke and it was hitting his chest. It was adequate for me though considering I was staying my myself. If you're looking for a room on a bit of a budget I would recommend this place. Collapse

Arrived at Island Colony in the evening and first thing we saw outside were a group of men that were drunk and it seemed they were homeless. Check in was fine. On way up to room, there was another drunk person in the elevator with us. Hallways were very dingy. Room as it was advertised and looked OK. Deadlock on door was broken- therefore not able to use it. The feeling we had at this point was this place was not safe and were afraid to go down to lobby alone. Not good feeling. As we slept I was bitten by bed bugs, on legs. Bites had to be medically treated! That was it - we were out of there by early morning. HORRIBLE BEGINNING TO A HOLIDAY. DON'T EVEN BOTHER. FAR FROM STRIP AND BEACH (I have travelled alot and never had a experience like this) We were even charged a 2 day penalty for leaving early and company has not even responded to my agent emails. KEEP AWAY Collapse

We stayed 1 night here and for us it was a great affordable stop over in a great location. I would prefer to stay at a nicer hotel if I was staying for longer. It was reasonably clean but just didn't feel like a relaxing holiday hotel but you get what you pay for! It was noisy but not overly. Great location just a short walk to the main area. Collapse

I generally opt for the penthouse or higher level apartments. The views are spectacular and the units are perfect for a holiday- including kitchen. They have security desk and it feels really safe. The main pluses for me are: on-site convenience store (sells everything you need) and the pool/spa and BBQ areas. There seems to be so much room that it doesnt feel overly populated. Collapse
