Believe me, you will we at least 5 couples getting married here or taking their wedding pictures here. Therefore this hotel is always busy and packed! The night we stayed was full house and we couldn't get our room changed, even if there was dirty vent or dirty pillow with small windows that can not be opened, I hated that... More

This place has excellent location, the rooms are larger than average and have a nice balcony. The prices are ridiculous like the rest of Hawai'i. The beach of course it's top notch. Pros: Being charged for beach chairs! $17 charge for room service in addition to the delivery charge. Pros: Free water in the room Beds are the best I've... More

After two nights at the Royal Hawaiian that were lackluster, I moved to the Moana Surfrider and am so happy I did so. The rooms a little smaller but they are recently remodeled and have modern fixtures and wonderful beds and linens. The staff was very friendly and helpful, which again was refreshing after the stale staff at the RH.... More

This hotel is beautiful don't get me wrong but the service here is ridiculous. I've been to many hotels but the service here is Definitely 2 star and below. I will not be coming here again for sure. My wife and I are on our honey moon for 14 nights - on our arrival I actually lifted all 3 of... More

This is a beautiful hotel. Loved sitting on the beach purchasing drinks from the friendly wait staff. Pool tended to get crowded so we preferred to stay at the beach. Had a wonderful breakfast every morning outside downstairs. The fresh fruit was delicious. After breakfast we would head to the front of the hotel to rock in the rocking chairs... More

We generally look for older, classic hotels, so we knew what to expect from the Moana Surfrider. It is a beautiful hotel. Yes, our beach view room in the historic Banyon Wing was very tiny and there was no where to put clothes or suitcases. But the view was beautiful and the sound of the surf was exactly what we...

Charging for a lounge chair---really? What are they thinking! That's just wrong. I've been to Waikiki several times and will stay at another property ths trip for comparison. Check-in line was long but moved reasonably. Beautiful ocean view room with comfortable bed and linens. Maid service did a good job. Public area had many glasses, plates left around for hours--...

I'm from Hawaii and used to stay @ the SurfRider when we traveled from Kauai to Oahu. It had been a long time since I stayed after we moved to Oahu. Then I returned in April of this year, 2014. Initially I was disappointed that my experience was less than excellent as it had been. After a few room switches... More

From pre bookings home in Australia to check-in the whole experience has been appalling. As a regular guest this will be my last. Weddings, mango market stalls, small beds (no queens) and noisy bathrooms next door I will definitely look elsewhere in Waikiki.

Thank you Moana Surfrider . We had a fabulous family holiday in July 2014. We enjoyed an 8 night stay and loved every second of it. This hotel possesses a certain charm that could only be found in Hawaii . The food was on the expensive side but you get what you pay for...... It was worth it. Listening to... More
