Aqua Coconut: the right choice for our familyfrom dmmmama5
Good value budget hotelfrom brisbaneblue
Aqua Coconut, pretty nice I should think...from derdonkderd
The only downside was the A/C to our room was a bit lacking, but that is the only complaint I have. The staff was amazingly friendly, personable, and very helpful.
The location is convenient, only a couple blocks from the main drag of Waikiki, so it is easy to enjoy the night life, and not worry about driving or paying a high cab fare.
The rate was very reasonable... I would recomend it to anyone looking to have fun in town, or anyone really. It is a bit far from teh beach, but I am not so much a fan of the beach there in any case.

What a relief to find such a great little hotel!from dleaolson
So So Stay at Coconutfrom GingerGirlNY
Desperately needs renovatingfrom OntarioJackson
We had booked this hotel on suggestion from our travel agent, but were unable to book it at the end of our vacation 7 weeks later, so booked a sister hotel the Aqua Palms for that stay.
We checked in late in the evening after flights from Toronto and Vancouver ( read very exhausted travellers). The entrance was difficult to find, so our taxi let us off at a semi-hidden pathway and we hiked our luggage up the hill to the door.
The young girl on the desk was friendly but didn't have a lot of authority, so when we reached our "king" room and found it as 2 twins, there was apparently nothing she could do to change it as all the rooms were booked.
That wouldn't have been too bad except that the room wasn't clean, the wallpaper in the bathroom was hanging in strips, the sink and shelving were rusty and the tiles were broken and dirty.
The linens were threadbare and the kitchenette appeared about 30 years out of date.
We gingerly got into bed and slept OK.
We discovered in the morning the only good thing about the hotel was its good location and lovely views from our decrepit balcony.
Needless to say, we were thrilled that on our return to Honolulu 7 weekslater, the Aqua Coconut had no room for us, so we had to stay at the Aqua Palms which was wonderful and cheaper!!!
Thank you for your feedback and I certainly agree that the condition of the former Aqua Coconut Plaza hotel was in need of renovations. Since your stay 6 months ago the Aqua Coconut Plaza Hotel underwent a major transformation and has been renamed as the Aqua Coconut Waikiki Hotel. I encourage you to visit our website to view pictures of the new hotel. The hotel recently re-opened its doors on June 1, 2008 after an extensive 3-month renovation which addresses the guest room issues you previously mentioned in your review. The rooms are completely new with either a king bed or two double beds with brand new linens. All the tiles were replaced with carpet and the bathrooms were completely overhauled and transformed to a bright sleek contemporary appearance. The kitchenette that you referred to as, “appeared about 30 years old” have been completely removed and replaced with new cabinets, granite top and stainless steel appliances.

Top Local Tips for Honolulu
Robert's Hawaii bus service & Submarine I paid for a pick-up service to take us from HNL airport to Waikiki and though it seemed expensive it turned out to be a pretty good deal because it was our first trip and we had no idea how far away Waikiki is from Honolulu. They met us with a real flower lei and drove us to our hotel. We were invited to a free breakfast the next morning were they gave us a little entertainment from the Polynesian Culture Center and an overview of what attractions could be purchased. We bought the Submarine ride and it was very fun. We could probably have booked it ourselves for the same price or less but we didn't have much time so getting the schedule and location from them made things easy and relaxed.
Don't miss The Bus! check out www.thebus.org for information on the Oahu bus system. You can get all over Oahu inexpensively, buy an extended pass, etc. Just don't plan on bringing luggage on board - get a taxi. Otherwise, the buses go where you want to go, so why rent a car and spend a fortune, not to mention the horrendous traffic congestion in Honolulu.
Oahu Coupon Book Pick up this coupon book before you leave the hotel and thumb through often. There is a map of the area, and valuable coupons in there.
