Had a lovely 4 night stay at this hotel. Visited the spa twice - nice facilities and relaxing treatments. Our initial room was in the Diamond wing and was quite small - was supposed to be a King bed but was not even a Queen by the look of it. The staff were very accommodating and switched us to another...

This hotel was wonderful. Every single staff member we spoke with was friendly and helpful. The location was superb. Our room was lovely, clean and roomy. Someone else mentioned that the partial ocean view was only from the balcony, but so what? So was ours but when we weren't out exploring, we were on our balcony enjoying the view of...

The Moana Surfrider is the oldest hotel in Waikiki. Right on the beachfront in the middle of Kalakaua Ave. The beautiful white Hawaiian icon is famous for its beautiful Banyan tree in the courtyard. Also popular for weddings. The rooms are quite small but beautifully decorated. Their is a smallish pool and deck area right on the beachfront. Also a...

The Surfrider was the first hotel built on Waikiki, and thus has a distinguished history (including an unsolved murder of a Stanford heiress) and a gracious, classical decor. Advantages: Perfect location on the curve of the beach, with gorgeous views of Diamond Head from the Tower. The hotel is right in the middle of the action, next to Duke's and...

I assumed my partial ocean view would be from my room, but all I could see from my room was the hotel next door. I had to go out onto the balcony and position myself to the right in order to see a bit of the ocean. The initial room they gave me had a brown stain on the toilet....

First out maid was Cecilia! She was very attentive to our needs. We had a couple of special requests and they were handled effortlessly and with an amazing attitude! This resort had great amenities and was super clean, great ambiance with the old Hawaiian culture of the building! We got a corner room with a view of the Ala moana...

We spent a week here. We stayed here for a week 5 years ago for our honeymoon and it was amazing, but I wasn't as impressed this time. It was still nice but our room was super small. I probably would not stay here again...I will say it is in a great location.

My husband and I stopped by for a drink after dinner tonight and were definitely not made to feel welcome. There were 3 bartenders behind the bar and they were all more concerned with cleaning up and cashing out then serving their guests. We would have stayed for a second drink but were never asked if we wanted anything. It...

I have stayed in a few hotels in Honolulu, but always find myself coming back to the Moana. I personally like modern hotels, so finding something comfortable in Honolulu on the beach can be difficult as the decor is dated. Moana delivers beachfront location, beautiful decor, great service and amazing food. If you are after a view, be sure to...
