We stayed here 4 nights. Nice location about a block from the beach. Very friendly and helpful staff. It is a little dated but they keep things up well. Free beach towels you can check out. Our room had a big balcony, no view of the ocean though. Small kitchen, living room area, table and chairs, good a/c. The only...

We had a one bedroom corner apartment on the 17th floor. The view was amazing! The hotel itself is a little bit dated. The room was small to my liking because we could hardly move once the sofa bed was spread out. The air con was noisy so we could not have it on during the night. The bedroom has...

This is one of the best locations in the area. It is very central, lots of great restaurants and shopping near by. Waikiki's famous lounging and surf beach is a minute walk from the door. The higher rooms have amazing beach views at a reasonable price for the area. The hotel itself is a little dated, but it is clean,...

We stayed 12 nights at the Aqua Pacific Monarch from 26 Nov until 8 December 2016. From our initial booking enquiries until our checkout the service was first class. We stayed with our 16 yr old son in a one bedroom suite overlooking Waikiki beach. We requested a high unit and were put on the 26th floor which gave wonderful...

We recently enjoyed our first visit to Honolulu - Waikiki . The Aqua Pacific Monarch was like home from the first minutes of our very late night arrival to the last moments of our slightly traumatic departure. It was exciting to see the lobby renovations progressing each morning and the seamless way the staff met and greeted guests with a...

Stayed at the aqua pacific monarch in early December 2016. This was booked through my travel agent so we were not sure. I have to say it was fantastic, it's in a very good location, close to Waikiki beach and all transportation. It is a bit tired looking but at the end of the day it serviced our needs. Great...

Pros: The quick and efficient service during check in, staff at reception were all very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at the Aqua Pacific Monarch for a week in November; I had stayed there previously eleven years ago. I did notice that it had been refurbished and looks great. The location is perfect in Waikiki: the bus stop is right outside, so close to the beach and close to a lot of eateries. The staff are wonderful and...
