Moana Surfrider is a great hotel with friendly and helpful staff and a spectacular location. My wife and I have stayed at other Waikiki hotels but so far, Moana Surfrider is the one we like best. The hotel has a great classic look and feel yet still has a contemporary sense. The beach front area of the hotel is fantastic...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 January 2017

This resort was just lovely. The view from our room #3418, was spectacular! It was the perfect spot for watching the fireworks on New Year's Eve - a direct view from the room. Be aware that some rooms (including ours) have only a small balcony for standing. It worked well in our situation because the weather was not too hot,...

We read a number of negative reviews about the Moana Surfrider in Waikiki, but our experience was outstanding. Great people, great service and nothing was a problem. It's a beautiful old hotel, packed with charm and old world elegance. If you want modern, stay somewhere else. If you want charm and grace, stay here. Can't help but think the negative...

We stayed at the Moana Surfrider during our very first visit to Waikiki, so the very first thing that struck us was the amazing location, wedged between one of the most famous beaches of the world and some of the best shopping one could see anywhere. The hotel looks amazing, with decor from another era - just beautiful to the...

My family of 6 recently visited and we were very pleased with the resort. This was our first trip and I wasn't certain if the expense would match the value since we have a rather large and young family. I'm pleased to say it exceeded my expectations. We didn't check in until about 5:30pm. This was the same day of...

We stayed in 2 different rooms and I can't tell you the difference it makes to be in the Tower with an oven view. The rooms in the "original" hotel have character, but they are small, don't have a view, and are "loud" at night. By contrast, the rooms in the tower have plenty of room, are quiet, and the...

This was an amazing place to stay. It may not have had all of the glitz and glamour of the newer hotels, but it had an amazing charm and was just a great place to kick back for our week in Hawaii. The staff were amazing. When they found out it was our 1st wedding anniversary while we were there,...

This place oozes Hawaii history. There are different "phases" of the hotel as there is the original structure, and the add-on sections on either side. The circular drive out front was obviously built for a time with a lot less people and cars, so there's not a lot of space for pickup and drop off of guests. We checked in...

I have been to Oahu several times before and even though I have been to this hotel many times to eat in the past I have never stayed there .
