“All the basics to take proper advantage of Waikiki.”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

This Hotel is very well located, close to the canal, and 4-5 fully entertaining blocks from the beach.
Everything is near... to take a good dinner, cheers in local pubs or to visit local market.
The service is really good, specially since your arrive; very nice people always willing to help you.
For the price...taking into account the zone, is a really smart option when you arent looking for luxury rooms (but very decent anyway!).

Having surfed the net to find somewhere clean, friendly & safe to stay on my solo travel, I opted for the Pearl. I wasn't disappointed. My two night stay in Waikiki was a wonderful experience & the staff were so friendly & helpful. After my long flights from Glasgow via London & LA to Hawaii, I just wanted to relax & sleep without the formalities of specific dining times & sample the local food at my leisure. I was sorry to leave despite embarking on a 17 day cruise to Australia. Would love to renew the experience in future. I would definitely recommend the Pearl to those who desire comfort, friendliness & safety in a clean environment at a reasonable cost. Thank you for the pleasant memories.

Aqua Pearl was one of the best decisions made ever! The staff was sooo friendly, funny and soo helpful! Everything we needed they we were there to help us out, and so happy about it. Jamar was amazing, he became apart of our family :) that's what makes an experience wonderful! So if you want great hospitality, location and whatever else in between, you should definitely, stay at Aqua Waikiki Pearl!!!

With love, from Toronto Dora(Telisa) Cleopatra (Katrina) Ballerina (Angel)

Good place to stay. Rooms are very clean. Staff is very nice and willing to answer all your questions. Hotel is in the middle of Waikiki so it's very busy area. Not as close to the beach as I thought but within walking distance. The only issue is parking, not enough parking for hotel guest so had to park offsite. Also you pay for parking everywhere in Waikiki so be prepared to pay to park. I would stay here again. Very pleased. Thank you for a great stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The staff were super friendly and welcoming! Thanks! The tour desk was great and efficient! There was a bit of street noise but it didn't stop any of us sleeping. The rooms were large and maybe just a tad tired but I think reflected sufficiently in the cost which was very affordable and they were clean. The hotel is very well situated in Waikiki with very little walking distance to the shopping strip, restaurants and beach. If you love Mai Tai's you must go to the Royal Hawaiin for a Royal Mai Tai at sunset - warning - only have one!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street. Less Noisy!

This is an old review, so perhaps the Pearl has changed her ways since we stayed there. This place stands out in my memory as one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had.

First of all, when I made the booking I asked if the hotel had parking because I knew my family members wanted to rent a car. They told me that parking was available. When we arrived, we were told that the parking was unavailable and were directed to park at a neighboring hotel. (A very shady place, where the parking attendants happened to be running a scam.)

The hotel room was huge but there was only a small couch to sit on. It was kind of like hanging out in an unfurnished apartment. There was no maid service during our stay at all.

On the second day, we came back to hotel to find ourselves locked out of the room by the hotel staff. It was an hour long run around until we finally found out that they had booked somebody else into the room at a higher price and wanted to "down grade" us to another room in the hotel. They would not let us enter our room until we agreed to clear out our stuff so their other guests could move in.

When we saw the room they wanted to put us in, which smelled weird, didn't have a balcony or enough beds to sleep everyone in our party, we decided to check out of the hotel instead. We were much happier staying at the Marriott Courtyard down the street.
