I liked this hotel. The location is great and I like having a small kitchen. The roof top pool and hot tub is protected from the wind and very nice. The hotel seems like a condo used by owners. I will stay here again.

Aloha SCMichaelTravels,

Thank you for your recent visit with us at the Aqua Pacific Monarch Hotel. I am delighted to hear that you found our location to be convenient and that you enjoyed our pool. We are indeed very fortunate to have access to one of the most amazing views on earth, the Pacific Ocean! We do share this amazing view with a handful of condo owners that came, loved it, and decided to stay. We can hardly blame them.

We appreciate your patronage and hope to welcome you back again on a future visit. We hope you have a happy holiday season.

Warm Regards,

Kahealani Colón
General Manager

We are here now and enjoying it very much.
The hotel web site does not give complete helpful information. The following may help you, as, because it is a condo hotel, one is never sure of what is provided. Because airlines are all about luggage weight, why pack things if you don't have to?
-pool towels are available at the front desk, so no need to bring your own.
-all rooms have blow dryers
-shampoo/conditioner/lotion/soap/bath gel are provided
-paper towels, tea towel, basic cutlery, plates, rice cooker, cups, glasses are provided.
-although they provided packets of ground coffee sealed in round coffee filter packs, it is not good coffee, and you get a few tiny packs of powdered whitener, a single pack of sugar etc that is inadequate, so, be prepared to get take out coffee, or buy grounds at numerous close stores. We use a paper towel as a coffee filter.
-Bring you own salt and pepper or buy at the local grocery store.

The Good
-Charlie at the front desk checked us in and is very helpful. All others that we've encountered are nice as well.
-Location.....3 ABC convenience stores within less than a 1 minute walk. Full sized grocery store called the Food Pantry is a 2 minute walk away. Front door to beach is a 1 minute walk. The views are spectacular as long as you are high up. We are on the 31st floor. Am not sure how high you have to be to get a good view. Pool is on 33rd floor. Great view.
-Large lanai with table and 4 chairs
-Excellent water pressure in shower and plenty of hot water
-Good Housekeeping in suite, corridors and lobby.
-Self serve laundry on 3rd floor in parking garage is handy. Quarters only. $2 wash and $2 dry.

Could Be Improved
-Generally, the room and furnishings are in good shape, but the bathroom tub/shower fixtures need replacing. They are old and shabby. The rubber baseboards in the bathroom are peeling away fron the base of the tub. Multiple layers of silicone etc, just doesn't give a feeling of cleanliness. Tub doesn't drain very well.
- Roof top pool is small with not many lounge chairs. No atmosphere up there. Perhaps a bit of piped in music would help. We whisper to each other so others can't hear our conversations. Too quiet and dead feeling. Pool apron needs repainting. Lots of flaking paint.
-Slow elevators
-Poor lighting. Lamp shades are yellowed out. Dull lighting in kitchen area.

On the whole, we are very pleased. Usually stay at the Sheraton Waikiki, but wanted the ability to have breakfast items etc. at hand, via fridge etc. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Just hope they invest some money on improving some of the older fixtures etc.

Room Tip: Get a 1 bedroom instead of a studio so you get a large lanai rather than just a narrow 'Romeo and Juliet' style balcony. Ask for high floor with ocean view.

The view from the One Bedroom Ocean View rooms is 5 star, but the hotel overall is a bit tired and dated and so 3 star. It's for that reason that I've rated it four star overall. The One Bedroom Ocean View rooms also have a really spacious balcony with table and four chairs. The staff were friendly and there were laundrette facilities. There is also a really good, big supermarket 3 minutes away (called something Pantry). The beach is also an easy 5 minute walk away. Buses stop nearby.

Have stayed here 3 times now it is very close to everything and a bus stop outside front door to get to anywhere else far away. Every thing else is in walking distant beach shops all one block away. So have a great stay.

We were here for 14 nights,it was excellent.Unit was clean and tidy and the full kitchen was a bonus.
Serviced every day and the sheets were changed every 3 days.Wifi was included.
All the staff were very helpful.
I suggest you stay on a level as high up as possible,we were on the 20th.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit that has been renovated.
