Aqua Oasis, A Joy Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Hawaii’s fun side is ever-present at Aqua Oasis. Of course it has all your easy-going island essentials: a spot near Waikiki Beach, chilled sitting areas, the all-important pool and sun deck, and a deep-soaking tub and private ‘lanai’ balcony in every room. But it also brings effervescent extras, including a karaoke lounge, but also its spot steps away from luxury shopping and the International marketplace, and the unlimited movies and PS3 games on tap. Smartly furnished and crisply designed, it has just enough subtle Polynesian touches to remind you you’re in Hawaii, from floral prints to splashes of turquoise or orange, without losing its modern edge. And there’s also a taste of Hawaii in its complimentary breakfasts, which mix Continental favourites with fresh island fruits.

We stayed 11 days at Aqua Oasis. This was an outbound PCS Military move. The staff was amazing. Mike, one of the valet members was amazing. He learned my kids names, treated my daughter like she was royalty whenever he would pull the van around and alway had great conversation with us. My kids after just two were calling him Uncle Mike. Olivia and Rachel, both with the front desk. Both of these individuals were amazing. Always smiling and talking to my kids. My little ones had millions of questions and they always took the time to answer them and just be all around amazing people. Again, cannot stress this enough that these folks become your family. Olivia and Rachel are by far some of the greatest folks we have ever worked with during a PCS or even hotel stay. They always checked on us and asked if there was anything we needed. By the second day they knew all our names and the kids names. Last but not least, Evelyn, the manager. When our hotel at another location didn’t reopen as planned due to Covid, I scrambled to find a new place to stay as I was about to be temporarily homeless. I spoke to about 15 locations and none of them wanted to work with the size of my family or were even friendly on the phone. When I got to Evelyn at the Aqua Oasis she could tell I was stressed by the tone in my voice. She asked what I needed and to if she could help. I explain our situation. She put me on a very brief hold and then told me she could fix it all. She gave us two amazing rooms at an amazing rate. If you are military in a PCS move, call her first. She will make miracles happen. She resolved all our lodging issues and basically let me dump all the stress on her. I have never had a team at a hotel or resort treat us in such an amazing way. I stay at hotels about 200 days a year in general for work. This is by far the best place and most accommodating place I have ever stayed at in 18 years. I would compare the service to the service you receive at Disney World. Everyone is happy you are there and they want you to relax. The maid service / rooming cleaning service needs a special shoutout. We had a kitchenette room and it comes stocked with everything you need from plates and silverware to pots, pans and a rice maker. We did our own dishes daily but one morning we ran out and left the sink full for later. The cleaning team washed and put away all the dishes. Not their job at all as we are all adults but it was such a nice surprise to come back to the hotel and find it all done. If you are traveling with a large family, ours was a party of six, this is the place to stay. The rooms are huge and plenty of space for the little kids to run around the room. 5 stars isn’t enough for this team, they definitely are the top of the spectrum when it comes to Hotel Staff. They are family. Read less

Great gem of a hotel, booked the 1 bedroom suite and had a full fridge/freezer, stove, microwave. Quiet cold air conditioning. Awesome bathtub and living room setup. Will come back again. Olivia at the front seat was professional courteous and the essence of Aloha.

During our stay their were a plethora of dining options and the hotel practices were very safe. The highlight of our stay was the service. At no point did any of the staff say no to any of our requests, and they were very accommodating during what could have been a tumultuous period. While we were here Olivia the Hotel Manager took care of us going above and beyond all our expectations. Thank you so much for making my families health your number one priority. Read less

I had a work related stay at Aqua Oasis in September 2020. All staff members that I encountered were extremely friendly. I used the WIFI my whole stay and it worked well for my needs. The location cannot be beat for the price. They have hand sanitizers set up around the first floor too. Highly recommend staying here.
