Drink specials, beers, Maitais, margaritas, food too. Great spot on the beach to watch the surfers. You can also stay for dinner and enjoy a menu full of steaks, seafood that's out of this world, and a great wine list to boot. A great place that's not too well known.

I had a Shiatsu massage this July and it was the best massage I have ever had. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. The masseuse' name is Patti. She is the best. She took all my aches and pains away and I have been in a lot of pain for over 30 years!!!! No... More

We had the banyan wing with the ocean view and it was amazing! The service was outstanding from the hotel staff and with walking distance to heaps of restaurants and shops. We couldn't stop raving on about this place when we got home to our friends and family! You must try the stand up boarding on Waikiki beach

My husband and I had our wedding here and it was simply magical! If you're thinking about having your wedding here, Lindsay was such an amazing coordinator. Since we were staying at the Moana for our wedding they put us up in a suite. It was absolutely amazing. We had a perfect view of Waikiki beach. The room was very... More

Our stay here was just beautiful. From the location to the service I would highly recommend. The only down side was that the walls are thin so you can hear everything next door do!!. If you want to get married in Hawaii I would also recommend this gorgeous hotel. I saw so many brides during my stay and they were... More

Staff were nice, room clean and quiet, right on the beach. Partial ocean view room very nice! Stayed here for 3 nights and would come back. Chicken wings from bar are delicious. Pool small but ocean is warm and nice.

My husband travels for work so we use points a lot when we travel, and this hotel kept coming up. At first we weren't sure because we heard that the rooms are tiny, but we asked for rooms in the new tower (instead of the original rooms in the main hotel) and couldn't have been more pleased. We had two... More

Don't be fooled by the impressive street frontage and lobby. We have just checked in today and the rooms are tiny, claustrophobic and are in desperate need of rejuvenation. This resort certainly does not live up to the Westin name and is totally overpriced. I'm not usually one to complain on TripAdvisor but this experience has been very disappointing so... More

Aloha Louise, Thank you for sharing your experience. I am disappointed to learn that your stay at the Moana so far has not exceeded your expectations, especially in regards to your guestroom experience. Plans to refresh the historic Banyan Wing are scheduled to begin later this year to create a more tranquil experience. I am also glad that we were... More

Full of 1920's charm the Moana Surf Rider is the original and the best on Waikiki beach. Very comfortable rooms, great ambiance great food and service, for mine you can't go wrong. From the hotel stretches out onto the beach and if you prefer there is also an excellent fresh water pool. Much enjoyed and highly recommended.
