We have been coming to this hotel for about 20 years. We would not stay anywhere else. The cabanas are a delight. We can stay out side all day and not get too much sun. The staff are wonderful. Gloria is at the pool and she has been here for some time. My daughter broke her fingered and Gloria was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 January 2017

After staying elsewhere on our first trip to Waikiki, this time I was determined to stay at this exceptionally well located iconic resort. It didn't disappoint. Check in was fast and the staff cheerful and efficient. We were fortunate to be upgraded and our room was amazing. It was clean and modern. Although a partial ocean view, we had a...

Robert M and Stuart went above and beyond to take care of us while we were using one of their conference rooms. They are thoughtful, friendly and very professional. It's always a pleasure to spend time with them at the Moana!

Similar to other comments, nothing don't expect to be treated like a Gold or platinum guest. We just hit SPG Platinum last year, and we have been to the Moana annually for the past 10 years. We were hoping our last trip to be treated as Platinum guests. Definitely not the case. It was the week after Thanksgiving, and according...

This is the third time I have stayed at the Moana Surfrider and I was not disappointed! In my opinion, this is the only place to stay when you are staying on Waikiki. The property is beautiful, very well-maintained and clean. The staff at the Moana is just amazing! Always friendly and helpful, they make you feel like a welcomed...

My wife and I recently spent a week at the Moana Surfrider Hotel. A wonderful hotel, beautiful building ideally set on the beach. Excellent restaurant and bar. Service with a smile. For example if you arrive before your room is ready they have a room that you can use to have a shower and change clothes.

The Moana is the first hotel built on Waikiki Beach, truly the "First Lady" of Waikiki! We were graciously greeted by Frank our doorman, Alyssa our wonderful hostess, and received excellent service from Aki and Joel of the Banyan Veranda. Can't beat the ambiance of the historic hotel, the ocean front view, and the banyan tree in the courtyard. What...

The brother of one of the persons in my party recommended this hotel. It was a little pricey but when the price dropped we jumped on it. We were there for two birthdays and when we let Keola know that were were there for two birthdays he upgraded our rooms to a balcony room. He also sent the two birthday...

I think the historic wing is fine, and that is where I stayed. Those rooms are small, and probably the same size as when the hotel opened in 1901. The biggest plus is the hotel is right on the ocean. I like to hear the ocean. My window had a "block" that limited how far open it would go, but...
