Recent Aqua Pacific Monarch Reviews

This is a great location for going to Waikiki Beach and the main strip. You are close to all shopping, restaurants and of course ABC stores. The rooftop pool was very nice, although a bit windy. The balcony had a nice view of the ocean, we found it quite windy so werent able to spend much time on it, and couldnt enjoy coffee or meals out there. We used the rooftop grill one evening and it was very clean and worked great. The hottub is a nice place to chat with other guests. The room was good. The bedroom is nice when traveling with a family. We found the pullout couch to be a bit uncomfortable due to just having a memory foam and not a real mattress. The kitchen could use a few more cooking utensils, there was no flipper or tongs for the grill, and there were no baking sheets or steak knives. Those would be our only complaints though. Check in was easy, the staff were very friendly and always helpful with questions or suggestions. The unit is very clean and bug free. There were 2 beach chairs and a medium sized cooler bag, we purchased a beach umbrella that we left behind so hopefully the next guests can use it. The ceiling fan and stand up fan in the bedroom were nice and the main air conditioner kept the unit nicely cool. Any communication with the host company was answered quickly. We would definitely stay in this unit again.

Location is excellent and close to beach and restaurants. The suite was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the super-mini ironing board was totally useless. Get a decent one please. Rooftop pool and bbqs were very good too.

In the future won’t stay anywhere else! Very clean condo with huge lanai and panoramic views (ocean out every window)! Condo has a great layout and is perfect for 1-2 people- a new couch/ futon was comfortable for sleeping. Owner Steve was in regular contact with us making sure everything was as expected. Condo In a hotel building in Waikiki surf area- best access to beach, shopping and entertainment, great pool and community spaces with friendly and very helpful staff.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The property has a great view, and was as described. The decor is dated and needs some TLC, but for the price and location, it is a good value. We did find that the queen bed was comfortable, but the fold out futons for guests 3 and 4, were not as comfortable.We enjoyed the hot tub on the roof.

For me the best features of this unit. The slider opens wide, 10 feet. Makes for a real open-air feeling. Next, this unit has an ocean view filled with activity, also a sparkling city lights view at night. Another feature important to me, the unit faces away from direct sunlight all day. The kitchen is fully equipped the pillows and bed are so nice, the internet and tv service work well. The elevator is fast and the lobby people are the best...

What an amazing place. Loved it and loved the location. Well equipped. Lovely host who was very communicative. The beach is literally within sight and a two minute walk. The host provided amazing beach accessories for which we were very grateful. Staff attge front desk made check in very long and difficult and gave incorrect info about several things including parking and laundry. That is pretty much everyone's experience.😅 but overall this is agt place!

Just about a block from Waikīkī Beach and on the 13th floor had a fantastic view of the ocean between and over some buildings! Our host supplied many items useful on the beach, but unfortunately weather wasn’t the best and Waikīkī Beach is pretty crowded even in late January when we were there. Only had one problem at the end when were charged for face cloths that were thread bare when we arrived and ripped during our use. Our host just uses a cleaning company though so she didn’t know about those items beforehand. Would recommend her and the facility ultimately.

Incredible sunrise, Diamond Head and ocean views. Suite had everything we needed. Ate all meals in and picked up groceries from Waikiki Market. Unit is on 31st floor, 2 floors from roof top pool and BBQs so very convenient amenities access. 2 min walk to the Duke statue on Waikiki Beach, shopping and restaurants. Would rent this unit again.

The room physically was all I could ask for. Nice furniture, lanais, kitchen, bath, all perfect.But the CONSTRUCTION outside was awful. Jackhammer every day. Backup beeping all the time. Hammering early in the day before 0800. You could not open the doors to enjoy the healthy sea air or hear the birds. NOWHERE in renting the unit was there any warning this was happening.

This unit is close to the beach, amazing views, friendly building, kitchen had everything I needed, and management was super responsive. I cannot wait to stay there again. And hopefully open up the whole wall of glass doors. Very lovely place. Thank you.

Property was clean and comfortable. Communication with the host was easy and quick. We could use an extra set of towels as there were 3 people staying and only 2 sets of towels. Other than that, I would highly recommend. Thanks for a great stay.

Rating Details: The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was very unhappy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo is in DETERIORATING condition: bathtub enamel is worn through to rust which wasn't removed after cleanig; bath/shower tile grout was black with mildew/mold even after cleaning; sofa upholstery is torn and smells of mildew; filter in wall air conditioning unit was black with mildew/mold/dirt; pictures removed from the wall were stacked on the floor; all lamp shades were water stained and in poor condition; vertical shade slats on living room sliding door were broken off in multiple places; aluminum track for bedroom sliding door is so corroded we were not able to shut/lock door; all furniture surfaces were dusty; bedsheet thread count was paper thin and translucent revealing the mattress pad below; bathroom vanity/counter tiles were broken off and replaced with laminate pieces; all furniture was in poor condition (scratched, old) and looks similar to free furniture listed on CL. Spent $1800 for 7 days and we couldn't stay one night because of the state of the condo/apartment. Called the contact phone number given for this unit and the representative said that they had to contact the property management company (Novation) in order to get authorization for remedial action, and instructed "We should stand by our phone and stay in the apartment awaiting a call back which may take up to 24 hours to happen." I would not jest: this response was considered appropriate customer support. My recommendation is to stay clear of this Novation-owned rental and buyer beware of VRBO listings. This is the second poor experience we've had with VRBO listings. If you're going to stay in Waikiki Beach, I highly recommend the Hilton Waikiki Beach hotel where we stayed for $50 more per night for a gorgeous, drop-dead ocean view room on the 30th floor, first class customer service, first class hotel rooms with on-site maintenance and housekeeping.

BLUF: Do Not Book This I booked this property for 18 nights. The lack of reviews made me nervous, but being a host myself I know everyone has to start somewhere, so I booked. Evolve communicated check in instructions. I was feeling good. My family of four, including a 5 year old landed in HI from NJ after 18+ hours of travel and arrived at the hotel to find out there was NO parking. The listing said it came with one parking spot (which you had to pay for) but there was no available parking. That’s not the worst. I tried to check in to this unit at 5 PM on the day of check-in (2 hours past check-in time). The hotel had no record of my reservation, even though the check-in instructions told me to check in at the front desk. I tried to call the “local host” - FYI Evolve (the main host is a giant company)- anyway, the local host didn’t answer the phone. So here I am in a lobby, awake for 19+ hours at this point, a sleep deprived 5 year old, and an unresponsive host. I then called Evolve, who was able to get a hold of the “local host,” who Evolve told me to give the local host 15 minutes. I waited for the local host to call me. He still did not call. Then called the host myself. He answered. He said the room would be ready shortly. It was another HOUR before we were able to get into the room. When we walked in it was trashed. Dirty towels, bedding, hair, and trash everywhere. I tried to call the “local host” back and he did not answer. Getting a refund took one month!

Great location. Beautiful view. Kitchen is well stocked. Amazing to have a washer/dryer and a parking spot. Host was responsive with a few questions we had when on site. Did not respond to a question I had before I left about a parking spot. Would stay here again . . . if they replaced one of the single beds. There was a huge “divot/hole” in the middle of the mattress. My sister had to put 3 pillows in this “hole” in order to use the bed. I notified the host.

Central location within a three minute walk of the beach. Lovely water views. Place itself is clean but a bit bare bones. We did not like the bedding. There was no duvet cover! Just a blanket between two sheets! So we went to Target and bought our own sheets and duvet. Also no kleenexes. The paper towel was very poor quality and paper thin so we bought some bounty. No dish drainer. Weird. Anyways, we felt they could have spent just a little more to make the experience nice. Host was not very helpful. We reached out that the blinds were defective and blocking the view. They initially said someone would stop by but 8 days later and no response. Having said that, location was nice and walkable. Not 5 star accommodations but a solid 3 star.

The location of this condo cannot be beat, in the middle of the action and only a short walk to the beach. The condo was clean and comfortable with all necessary amenities. The building itself has some nice amenities such as a nice lounge on the top floor, a sauna and a rooftop pool. One thing to note is that the condo is right below the lounge and one night there was a party in the lounge that did cause a fair amount of noise in the condo. However the party was over by 9 PM so not a big deal in my opinion. At night the 'quiet hours' are respected by everyone in the building it seems, but of course being in the center of Waikiki there is sometimes street noise, especially police and ambulance sirens, that can be heard. The property manager is very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Overall definitely recommended.

Condo itself is very compact, maybe 500 sq ft. However, it had everything you need, including a full kitchen, dining table, pull out couch, and balcony with lots of room. Beach gear is supplied. The property manager and his assistant are very helfpul and were available when we needed them. The rooftop pool area is unreal and the condo is very conveniently located in central Waikiki, just a block to the beach. Would love to stay here again.

This property is perfect for stay at Hawaii, specifically close to the Waikiki ocean. And me and my best friend had fun time. We usually eats outside, so didn’t use kitchen stuffs. But there’s a lots of missing the cooking stuffs in the posting. If they put all the stuffs, many people likes it. (Rice cooker, electric kettle, hair dryer etc..) But the most thing they have to change ASAP is The Air Conditioner!!! DOES NOT WORK at all! This is ridiculous in Hawaii even in Winter. Yes, I saw the reviews that people wrote about the air conditioner doesn’t work properly, but I didn’t think Doesn’t Work At All!! We wok up in the middle of night often, but the fan in the living room was so dirty (dust and greasy all over the fan 😥) And the cushions pillow are so dirty they’re stains looks like somebody’s sweating… Please Please change these stuffs fir the next travelers and if it’s changes, definitely this room will be most popular and I will be back next time and will suggest to my friends too. Thank you!

My mom, husband and I stayed for a week while we were exploring the area. This is a great spot for walking to the beach, shops and resturants in Waikiki. Its also a close drive to Diamond Head etc. As most places right downtown we did find it loud at night hearing people and vehicles on the street and we could hear the wind loudly. The space was a good size for 3 people for a short time.

We stayed in this lovely condo with our family of 4. Our kids are 8 and 10. I was a little anxious about where everyone would sleep, but everything was perfect! One kid slept on the futon and the other on the purple chair, which folds out into a tiny bed. An adult would not likely be comfortable on the purple chair, but for our 8 year old, it was perfect! We brought a little teepee tent thing and put that at the head of the chair to make it fun, and she loved it. The view is absolutely stunning. We loved how close it was to the beach and so many shops. Waikiki is such a fun, vibrant place! And it wasn’t a bad drive from the condo to places like Kualoa Ranch, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Diamond Head, etc. The only tiny problem we had was there were not enough dishes or utensils for 4 people. We thought it was hysterical that we only had one fork and had to share. But there are food trucks and ABC stores every 10 feet in Waikiki, so it was an easy problem to resolve. The rooftop pool and hot tub were fantastic, and we went several times and no one else was there! We watched sunrises and sunsets from the roof, which was amazing.

Super easy booking and great communication. Pictures match post. Love the location and distance to beach and all our needs. Helpful information on rental vehicles and parking situation made our planning easier Had a later evening arrival and found that location did not have our details, had to reach out to host/booking to get information to allow entry to suite - relatively quick response but check in process could be improved. Would stay again. Thank you
