We recently stayed at the Moana Surfrider it was a great stay. We were coming off a cruise and arrived in port at 7 am, we thought it would be a long day waiting for check in at 3pm, also we were flying out the next evening but not until 10pm. So we weren't looking forward to checking out at... More

We booked our hotel through Expedia and were given a wonderful ocean view room without paying extra. It was on the west side of the hotel and the 4th floor. We slept with our window open to hear the waves and we did hear people talking, partying late, but that was to be expected in a city and a top... More

What a perfect hotel! Beautiful decor, beautiful food, wonderful service, on a beautiful beach. I could not fault this hotel, the staff were amazing, the good fresh and delicious, they have really thought about the small things too for example the mat in the lift is changed morning, afternoon and evening to say "good morning" "good afternoon" or "good evening"...

We are staying in another Sheraton with shared privileges, the beach bar service is not what I expected. Will not spend the money to stay at the Westin if this is the level of service. Beach service was very rude after 8pm.

I loved my stay at this beautiful hotel! Check in was a breeze, food was outstanding, high tea was a delight and the spa was pampering. It is close to Duke's, rentals, shopping and I ended each night there with a sunset walk on the beach. I loved the outdoor dining, plenty of shade at pool, and the beautiful banyan... More

TIP 1: Order beers in to-go cups at the beach bar (even if your dining in) as those cups are 2oz larger. TIP 2: Cary your spg member number with you as you get discounts at on-property shops. TIP 3: Check directly with tours companies before you book through hotel as I saved 40% on one excursion asking for a... More

After making a big mistake on our first selected hotel on Oahu we moved to the Moana Surfrider Resort. The hotel is one of if not the oldest hotel on Waikiki Beach and maintains the character of the great historic hotels.
