The staff is great, friendly and accommodating. I have stayed there 3 times so far this year and look forward to staying there again. Beds were good, view on the pool side is awesome and the rooms were clean. Parking was $25 a day, not bad for Wakiki. Only 2 blocks to the ocean. Close to numerous restaurants ranging from dives to top end. Collapse

This hotel is a bit older than the photos on website might have believe. But overall its quite good for the money. Tip: book city view room: The rooms are small but comfortable, but the best thing is the location. Only a short walk to the heart of the city, restaurants,bus stops, and most importantly the beach. I know some will say this hotel is outdated but i think its good value for money, in a quite part of town and everything is within walking distance. For a couple of dollars you can use the laundry facility on floor 6, washers and dryers are available. Pool, gym, sauna, BBQ area, are all on this floor. Overall a place worth considering. Collapse

I have stayed in many Aqua brand hotels and I was honestly pretty disappointed with this one. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't really great either. There is plenty of construction going on in front which was a little inconvenient. The parking garage is convenient but also $25 a day so make sure to add that on to your budget. I am guessing, the higher up you go, the nicer the rooms are. We stayed on the 11th floor which surprisingly isn't that high. We were right next to the trash chute so the hallway always kind of smelled of garbage. The room was fine but falling apart a little bit. The view is pretty decent (mostly a city view) and it's nice to have a large balcony. The best part of the hotel though is the location. It is right in the middle of Waikiki and easy walking access to all the beaches/shops/restaurants. If it weren't for the location, I probably would not go back here. Collapse

Expensive family trip to Hawaii with 2 kids and we were a little disappointed with the hotel, to be honest. We were promised wine & chocolates in the room as it was my 'big' birthday, but they never arrived. (Very minor, but don't promise if you can't deliver!) There was a lot of building renovation going on in the front entrance, which was very noisy and started early in a morning, you couldn't hear a thing when walking through the lobby! This was a let down as there was a small cafe in the lobby but I couldn't see them doing much business because of the noise. We were on the 31st floor, not good if you suffer from vertigo!!! But the views were amazing. There was a small shop on the 6th floor which had loads of essentials. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and clean, this was also on floor 6 along with a small fitness centre. We did use the laundry, which was a total rob! It costs $5 to buy a swipe card, then you have to top it up with a minimum of $10 to be able to do any washing or drying! We didn't realise this until we had already bought the card but hey-ho, you live and learn. It made for a very expensive wash and dry. The room was quite pokey with old fashioned dark green carpet which was a bit threadbare and dark olive green walls and a bath room which was no more than 5ftx7ft with a shower which was so small we had to bend down to use it (me and husband are both 6ft+) not brilliant for a family of 4 really. There was a tiny sink and fridge in the 'kitchen' which was no more than a worktop really, but it was handy for keeping the water bottles in. The A/C was very noisy so we had to switch it off at night and leave the door onto the balcony wide open instead. The location was it's saving grace as it was only a 5 minute walk from Waikiki beach and the shops. Lots and lots of very expensive shops to walk around and the beach was amazing, but we wouldn't go to this hotel again unless it had a serious makeover and upgrade. A bit disappointing considering we spent so much. Collapse

I took my teenage children (16 & 18 yrs) for their first holiday to Waikiki. I have been to Waikiki several times and found that many of the hotels are fairly average (due to their age) for the price you pay, unless you stay at a 4-5 star at hotel with a very high price tag. I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel so we could save our money for shopping! The Aqua Skyline at Island Colony had everything I was looking for. It is located on Seaside Ave, only a few minutes walk to Kalakaua Ave (main street) and close to the Beachwalk, Victoria's Secret, Sephora, Macy's, Footlocker and lots of other great shops. It was easy walking distance to The Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen (2 of my favourite places to eat with teenagers). It was also a short walk to Bills Sydney to get my great 'Aussie' coffee each morning. There is also a pick-up point for many of the day tours just around the corner in front of IHOP, and easy access to the The Bus (local bus network). We stayed in a Studio Kitchenette room with 2 queen beds. This was great it you want to have toast/cereal for breakfast. Mc Donald's is also just around the corner if you want to grab a quick breakfast. The room was just like the pictures on the website. The only issues were the air conditioner was quite noisy and the shower head was quite low. Not a real problem though as you got used to it, and the other benefits outweighed these issues. The hotel has a great pool/spa area with a convenience shop on this level. It is open till late and prices are the same as the local ABC stores (including alcohol) which is really convenient. The rate also includes DVDnow. You select a DVD or PS3 game from the self-serve machine at Reception and play it in your room, which was great. There is also an ice-water dispenser at Reception which is great to grab a drink when you walk in from the beach. Don't worry about bringing your beach towel because the hotel provides these for you, clean daily. Every week they have a complimentary 'Welcome Cocktail' on the rooftop which I thought was a very nice gesture, and also provides a great photo opportunity. They also have a regular complimentary shuttle to Ala Moana shopping Centre which leaves from a sister Aqua hotel around the corner. The staff were friendly and helpful. Arriving from Sydney on a flight at 6am, Reception was happy to store our luggage. He even arranged a shuttle to Waikele Outlets so we could fill in our time before check-in, which isn't until 3pm. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely stay here again! Collapse
