Our stay at the Moana Surfrider was nice, and about what you could expect for a city hotel -- very hectic and busy. Waikiki is like Vegas - a zoo like atmosphere - so if you are looking to relax, this is not the place. On the plus side, the lobby is gorgeous, and the hotel is right on the...

Our family of 4 recently stayed for 9 nights at this hotel during Christmas & New Year and loved it. This historic hotel is beautiful, the public areas are clean and well maintained and were beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our room was located in the tower wing, with a partial ocean view. It was spacious with 2 double beds and...

We stayed a week and we didn't want to leave. An exceptional, unique place to stay. Expensive but worth it. I would definitely go back again. Lovely pool. Right on the beach. Great cocktails. Relaxing rocking chairs. Lovely people!

We absolutely LOVED staying at the Moana Surfrider on Waikiki Beach! We left our sliding balcony doors open all night long to listen to the ocean waves come and go! We stayed in the contemporary tower with a full ocean view king bed room. Everything was as expected from a Westin: perfect! Don't miss the flavored water near the reception...

My first visit to Waikiki the Moana was nice. friendly staff nice ambiance. Although no Jacuzzi and the pool area was small. You are right on the water so you need to get out on the beach early to get a free spot. Otherwise you have to pay for a covered area. If you get an ocean view make sure...

I LOVED the Moana Surfrider for outdoor dining. Unfortunately it was not on my accomodation budget list but that doesn't stop people from being able to walk in off the street, head straght through the foyer and emerge out the back to their dining and bar area which faces the water. Great entertainment every time we visited for lunch or...

The two major strengths of the Moana Surfrider are its wonderful staff offering first class service and its location on the best section of the Kalakaua Ave strip and Waikiki beach. We stayed in the historic Banyan wing and after a couple of nights the limitations of old rooms in a building built before proper soundproofing techniques were used became...

If you love historical atmosphere and giant banyan trees, you will love this resort. I loved the Beach Club, the morning yoga, the fun beach bar - all in all a great stay. The resort is close to everything you'd want to experience in Honolulu.
