Really nice hotel a few blocks back from Waikiki Beach, but an easy walk. Very convenient to beaches and shopping. Best surprise was the bar and restaurant in the hotel. Really nice food and drinks. Great they showed the '60's surf movie "The Endless Summer" on the screen over the pool and adjacent to the bar. The availability of coffee...

I wasn't to sure what to expect when having booked here as it being quite a new hotel. This fully renovated hotel was simply great, we had booked the 2 bedroom bungalow and found it suited our needs. I loved the water pressure as a lot of hotels have such bad water pressure. The music that was played each night...

We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our 3 year anniversary! The staff was the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered, and the space itself boasts this energetic and trendy atmosphere. We received a complimentary bottle of champagne to put our stay over the top! We'll be back without a doubt.

Surfjack was our oasis and we looked forward to returning to the hotel every evening after exploring Honolulu. We enjoyed listening to the live music in the lobby every evening while we relaxed with a nice glass of wine. The restaurant food was amazing. The staff took very good care of us. The rooms were clean, smelled nice and the...

We had a great stay for what was a pleasure trip with many other couples. All of whom stayed in other hotels. We feel we selected the best one of the group with the Surfjack. Staff is very accommodating and helpful. We changed rooms twice as more of our family members arrived over our stay and they were very helpful...

*I say hipster paradise in the very best possible way. It's a mid-century property updated with thoughtful details and carefully curated design elements. If you're a fan of HGTV, this might be the place for you! But comfort is not sacrificed to design. It's a very gracious and unpretentious place. *Great location: walking to the Waikiki strip and beaches. Mahina...

Sometimes hotels will the cool factor have an aloof staff. Surfjack had all the hipness and current styling throughout the hotel and into our suite. The cuisine at Mahina and Suns was some of the best we had on the island. We were impressed by the quiet atmosphere of our room during the weekend nights while the pool and restaurant...

This is a hip hotel with a friendly staff. However, it is new and they are working out the bugs. The lighting turned off and on randomly, enough to wake me up in the night. The door was not fit properly so it let in lots of noise.

I love the 60's surfer retro vibe. Our breakfast and dinner was Pacific fusion at it's most tasty. Our one bedroom suite was decorated retro surfer style - so comfortable. Our number one favorite part of our stay was the extraordinary friendliness of the staff - especially the manager and bartender. We cone to Honolulu a lot - this hotel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An authentic Waikiki experience awaits you at this vibrant new hotel located in the center of the action. With handcrafted design elements, surf-culture throwback & modern touches, you'll feel the energy of Waikiki at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. The Surfjack is home to stylish apparel shop, Olive & Oliver, and Mahina & Suns, renowned chef Ed Kenney's newest eatery. Guests also gather at the Swim Club - our outdoor pool and sun deck area where we share cultural programs and unique events as you sip on a cocktail (or two) and maybe jump into the pool because the moment was oh, so right. The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club offers renovated bungalow style guest rooms, in addition to spacious one, two, and three-bedroom suites. Each charming guest room includes air-conditioning, a refrigerator and a private balcony. The feel of open space and the handcrafted style in decor creates a sense of curiosity and serves to inspire adventure. The Surfjack is situated in the heart of Waikiki and offers easy access to prime shopping, dining and nightlife, and is located just three easy blocks to Waikiki beach. From morning surf sessions to sunset catamaran cruising - it really is an endless summer. For the moments in-between sand & sun, take a short drive to the art and culture communities of Kaka'ako, Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown for a true urban-Honolulu experience. Join us and immerse yourself in the ebb and flow of the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki. ... more   less

“On 5th floor street noise made it difficult to leave the doors open at night. Lower levels may have less street noise.”

“Our room was at the back of hotel, which meant it was quieter plus cooler. Those rooms over looking pool might be noisier.”
