I stayed in this condo building for a week in June on a high floor that had 270 degree views (beach, city and mountains). Great views and nice size lanai that could easily seat 4 people.

Pluses:
- Fabulous location; 2 blocks from the beach, supermarket, on the bus line, easy to park the car for in/out; surrounded by restaurants and shopping. If you like to walk, this is a great place for pedestrians.

- Roof top - small pool, small hot tub, 360 degree views and indoor common area rooftop where you can read or have a small informal function.

- Friendly staff

Negative for the unit that I was in - (Check with your specific unit; each unit may have a different owner and this may not be applicable for your unit)

- Our unit did not have a dishwasher.
- There was only 1 AC unit and it was in the living room and it did a great job cooling this room and the adjoining kitchen. However, it did not cool the bedroom down during day time hours. At night, the temps drop so that it is comfortable again and the window could be opened, but the bedroom only had a ceiling fan. Bedrooms are sometimes needed during the course of the day.

- Yes, you are in paradise called Waikiki; but you will hear lots of street noise; sirens (police, fire, etc) in this concrete jungle even up on the 29th floor. Also, depending on the time of day, you will hear hula shows, drums, etc. The garbage trucks have beepers when they back up and these begin around 6:30am and last for a good 90 minutes several times a week. The point that I am trying to make is that you are still in a big city and expect to hear big city noises. Bring your white noise maker and a good pair of earplugs if you are sensitive to this.

Aloha Chicago90phoenix,

Thank you for your sharing your feedback of your recent visit with us at the Aqua Pacific Monarch Hotel. It's great that you enjoyed the location, rooftop pool, and that you found our team to be friendly. You are correct however, there are no dishwashers available in any of the rooms at this time. In addition, we certainly understand your comments about thelack of cool air in the bedrooms on a hot summer day. When temperatures are cooler, typically the air conditioner in the living room can cool the bedroom just fine however it has been a very hot summer so it can get a little warm in the day time. But as you noted, it gets cool in the evenings and the bedroom drops to a comfortable temperature. We have looked at adding air conditioning to the bedrooms however it is unfortunately not a simple fix and will require some long term planning to find a permanent solution.

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Aqua Pacific Monarch for your family vacation. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Warm Regards,

Kahealani Colón

This hotel was perfectly located in Waikiki. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Having a kitchen was a real bonus as it made breakfast and dinner a homely option rather than going out especially when supermarkets were near at hand.
The rooms were well appointed and the ocean view was a real treat

We have just returned from our stay at the Aqua Pacific Monarch and would recommend it to all. The staff are fun and courteous, always greeting you with a smile. We had our accommodation cancelled with airbnb 12 days prior to departure. Having been to Hawaii many times, the hotels I have stayed in before were booked out as it is busy at this time of year. We had to find something in a hurry and glad we found this place. It had a kitchenette and some of our group were upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment. The kitchen was well equipped and they have a great room upstairs where you can catch up with friends etc. The hotel is close to everything and buses at the door but you can walk to most places. The ladies at the tour desk are a delight and so helpful. For the price you pay I feel it is good value for money. We stayed in room 1101 much cooler than 1105,6 where our friends stayed.

Room Tip: Choose the diamond head side as the afternoon sun makes the room very hot

We stayed for 2 nights and wish we could have extended our time at this fabulous property. What a great experience at a very reasonable price! The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, gorgeous Waikiki Beach is literally a 3 minute walk from the lobby, and we really enjoyed the breezy views from the rooftop pool. We stayed in one of the serviced apartments, which comfortably accommodated our family of five (myself, my husband, two young kids & my visiting mother). The Aqua Pacific Monarch is so centrally located -- near key shops and restaurants. We can't wait to return. Mahalo!

I stayed here many, many years ago & was very happy with it, so we decided to try again when my family was coming into town. The location is wonderful...near Waikiki Beach, all sorts of shops, & tons of restaurants. The prices are very reasonable considering you're in a high, pricey tourist area. Daily parking is expensive; but if you're not venturing out of the area, you probably won't need a car. You can get a bus to many local attractions. There are choices of rooms with bedrooms, or studios...some with better views than others, but all have some cooking facilities.
Enjoyed the roof pool area too!

Room Tip: My preference would be the one bedroom corner units facing the beach on one of the higher floors.

We stayed here for 3 nights before our cruise. The room was small for 4 people but who cares. We were only in the room to sleep. Place was clean and staff were very nice and helpful. Beautiful view of Waikiki Beach from the pool area. The only thing I'd change would be a more comfortable pull out couch. If I go back to Honolulu, will defiantly stay here again!
