Fodor's Review

Across from the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Ala Moana Boulevard, just as it curves toward Waikiki's Kalakaua Avenue, the 12-story Aqua Palms completed a $15-million transformation into a "condotel" in 2005 and now offers studio and luxury one-bedroom-suite accommodations. The studios include kitchenettes while the suites have full kitchens; both have tiled entryways, private lanai, and in-room DVD players, and there are coin-operated laundry facilites on-site. One-bedroom penthouse suites are elegant and spacious enough to make you want to move in. The hotel offers complimentary coffee and tea service in the lobby 24/7. The minimal cost difference between the studio and penthouse suite is well worth the splurge.

Can't Afford The Hilton Hawaiian Village? Try Aqua Palms Across The Street

We compared a few hotels in the area, but the Aqua Palms won our stay because it had the best rates for the location and amenities that we wanted. The location was great! A short ten minute walk to the beach. A 20 minute walk from major shopping and dining areas. There were two ABC shops on the block, as well as plenty of restaurants. The hotel also gave us vouchers for the on-site IHOP, which helped us save a bit of money on our trip, which

we put toward surfing lessons. Totally worth it! Don't miss the coconut syrup! Sometimes you have to ask for it specifically, but they always have it. The rooms were fairly basic and our pull-out couch bed didn't work, but other than that, everything was dandy. It was very clean and we especially appreciated that the Aqua Palms also provided us with beach towels. One less thing to pack. The Aqua Palms hotel staff were very friendly. Actually, everywhere we went everyone was absurdly happy. Must be the perfect weather every day, island living, and unlimited access to fresh Kona coffee. Note: this is contagious. We were so charmed that we pledged to start a new colony on the island.

near the beach, a bargain for the price

We stayed here for a week in April, and were very pleased with our jr suite on the 9th floor, which had a nice lanai with views of Diamondhead, the ocean, and DeRussy Park. Staff was attentive and pleasant, too. Used the internet and paid half the rack rate.
