Phenomenal pool!

Posted 4-Apr-2018
The staff at this hotel are very accommodating. The Pool is absolutely beautiful & lovely that they have a hot tub. The interior could use some updating but it was very clean and great value for the price point.

Nice hotel so close to action but quiet

Posted 26-Feb-2018
Cons: The lounge area could use an updating.
We loved our stay at the Bamboo. We never got to use the pool as it rained while we were there, but we enjoyed the location, so walkable and easy access to bus system, and they loaned us an umbrella to get around with all day. Staff were genuine and friendly. It is not a luxury hotel but our room was decked out in orchids when we arrived and there were other nice touches along the way.

An OK stay at Aqua Bamboo Waikiki

Posted 23-Jan-2018
Pros: Private pool is nice. Awesome customer service (from receptionists to hotel security to house keeping -- any time of the day)!
Cons: Remove unnecessary furniture & re-paint room walls white to give an illusion that spaces are bigger than they are. Remove carpet for low maintenance.
Location: Hotel is located in Kuhio, 2-3 blocks to Waikiki Beach. Restaurants, the zoo, aquarium and shopping areas are walking distance.
I booked a 6 night stay because of the good reviews I read. However, the good reviews I read did not match what I witnessed & experienced -- the online photos did not match our room’s ambiance. Although the room has renovated kitchen, there were just too many (bulky) furniture in such a small space, chipped paints on the wall, noisy AC box & you can hear the heavy traffic from the street. Listen, I am not expecting glamorous hotels like Las Vegas since guests should spend time walking around, swimming in & tanning on the beach. That's what Hawaii is about, but... if one had booked this hotel 4 mos in advanced, one should at least get what one is being offered. The good things about this hotel: It is on a prime location, just parallel & 2 blocks from Kalakaua. It is situated on a busier street due to public rides traveling on this road. But, it's a walking distance to many restaurants, shopping areas, & definitely easy access to bus rides/stops. Bus drivers we encountered were all friendly. They give info where to debark for your destinations. The main highlight of this hotel is its private pool (love it) & staff's great customer service, particularly from Aja who gave us directions for walking to site-see, & provided us bus & boarding info. I wish we had tried the Pizza place onsite as I had seen many come to eat there. Being on a great location & with awesome staff, with a bit more lobby and room renovations, this hotel will definitely be more on demand! :)

Sweet Suite

Posted 16-Jan-2018 on Hotels
We upgraded to a suite with private balcony w/bbq...it was awesome! Everyone that worked there was incredibly nice and helpful. The location was great short walk to the beach and Dukes bar & grill (perfect spot for sunset & live music). The only issue was the ac did not work very well & it was hard to sleep with out it.

Great location. Only thing I would change next time is to ask for a room pool side. We were on the road side of the hotel which was really noisy. Aside from that really enjoyed the stay.

Good place for a decent price

Posted 21-Dec-2017
Nice hotel in the center of Waikiki beach. Limited parking but you can park at other hotels for the same price. Everything is within walking distance: food, shopping and the beach. Try the Lovin Oven downstairs by the pool, great vegan place but doesn’t compromise on taste. Staff was friendly and very accommodating to needs.
