Ok hotel, close to beach

Posted 8-Apr-2014
Pros: The pool area is nice (if you want to use a pool when so close to the beach).
Cons: Hotel could be updated and made a little more fresh, although it was clean.
Location: Just 2 short blocks from the beach and Cheesecake Factory. Close to pink line trolley and outlet shuttle.
Hotel is a little dated and rough around the edges. We were 'upgraded' to a kitchenette room with 2 doubles although we booked a king. This made the room seem a little small compared to other hotels we've stayed at in Waikiki. Our room was also located on the road which was quite noisy with traffic, though this might be an issue in quite a few hotels in Waikiki. We were not given fresh soaps although staying for 5 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful though, it is in a good location for the beach and easy walking to Cheesecake Factory, which is a must!

Nice hotel 4 blocks from Waikiki beach.

Posted 4-Apr-2014
Pros: Pool landscaping was great. Having the full kitchen saved us money as we cooked our own breakfasts and a couple of dinners.
Cons: Update the tub.
Location: Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and pickup for purchased tour of Pearl Harbor. On site Lovin Oven made great pizza!
Enjoyed the free appetizers, drink and entertainment on Th night. Especially enjoyed making my free orchid lei! Rooms and kitchen were fine. Bathroom could use a little updating. Was great being able to check out beach towels and beach chairs from the hotel.

Could have been great with a few changes.

Posted 2-Apr-2014
Pros: Loved the pool, garden area. Very private and comfortable. Liked the option of a separate bedroom as there were four of us. Kitchen was great.
Cons: We read that beds would be changed every 3 or 4 days and ours were not changed over a 7-night stay. Bathtub needs replacing. Room needs painting.
Location: Great location one block from main street, 2 blocks from the beach.
Our room was quite run-down, in serious need of a face-lift. Also very cramped and dark. We felt mis-led by the photos on-line and we were expecting something more airy with a sitting area on the deck. Perhaps the rooms overlooking the pool were nicer. Sheets appeared too big for the beds and beds were not nicely made, ie the top sheet crept higher each day and the blanket lower. Liked the size of the hotel (small) and loved the patio/pool area which was private and surrounded by a well-maintained garden. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Very happy with our stay

Posted 24-Mar-2014
I have just spent a week staying at the Aqua Bamboo. Great location; easy walk to the beach and bus stops, main strip shops and dining. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Free wifi in the room and lobby is a bonus as is free access to cold water, coffee and tea, and the daily paper in the lobby. The hotel itself is a little older than most, however our room was clean, spacious and we heard little street noise. Free drinks and music are put on by the hotel staff each Thursday afternoon. Access to beach towels and chairs is also a plus.

Nice hotel for our Honeymoon. Close to the beach,

Posted 17-Mar-2014
Pros: The staff and the welcome that you receive.
Cons: Bathroom was a little dated but manageable. The positives by far outweighed the negatives.
Location: Close to the beach, transport, ABC stores (but they are on every corner anyway) and the ease of access.
The staff were excellent, the hotel close to everything including Waikiki, Value for money, nice pool area just had an overall great time in Honolulu. It is the staff that make any establishment, while there are many more expensive hotels, and I mean more expensive hotels, the personal service we received was commendable. Our parents have stayed there before and plan to stay there again this year.

Comfortable hotel, friendly staff

Posted 13-Mar-2014
Pros: They had a kitchen..helpful staff, comfortable bed
Location: Close to beaches, shops and a good walk to Diamond Head.
Excellent service, and comfortable roomy place. We walked everywhere, but the public bus was just outside and for $2.50 you can ride all over the place. The zoo, beaches, restaurants are all within walking distance, and for a bit of exercise one could walk to and back from Diamond Head...a shaved ice is great on the return journey

Nice but not fancy

Posted 15-Feb-2014
Pros: It was an easy two block walk to the beach. The rooms were clean and well attended. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
Cons: Some traffic noise but that could be drowned out by the air conditioner if you choose to run it all night.
Location: It's part of the beach strip so there are lots of restaurants and shops nearby.
This is a very nice, older hotel that is close to the beach and very comfortable. The staff was helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.

Nicest people!!!

Posted 1-Feb-2014
Cons: The beds
The staff was so nice and super helpful. We were able to schedule all tours we wanted to go on through the hotel. The free beach towels were awesome. The beds weren't super soft but worked fine for me. There were some cosmetic repairs that would make the hotel look better. The walk to the beach was so easy. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.
