We have returned to this hotel due to the great experience we had in 2013. This time we came for a college football game and chose the Moana due to its charming ambiance and its convenient location. There are many nice touches included in staying here. Housekeeping staff is prompt and efficient. Check in was awesome and we were given... More

It is a gorgeous hotel right on the beach. We had excellent ocean views out of our windows, but the room was terribly small. If you want to stay here verify the size of your room. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Bathroom was also tiny, but the shower was nice.

The Moana Surfrider had the most amazing king suites with waterfront views. Comfortable and luxurious. Here is a video of the room. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfzMAw9IG1I We had fantastic views of the hot surfing areas that I saw on the travel channel.

We paid for the privilege, but the Ocean View Diamond Head Tower room, on the 18th floor had the most amazing views. The room was a good size and well appointed, and nice enough - nothing extra special --- except for the view up Waikiki Beach to Diamond Head, it was memorable. I would definitely recommend this room, especially if... More

I love this hotel. I stayed in a corner, oceanfront room in the heritage wing… right above the beach, with stunning views of both Diamond Head and the whole expanse of Waikiki Beach in both directions. The room was really superb. This hotel's restaurants serve fresh and healthy food, with many locally-sourced ingredients. I also loved sitting in the chairs... More

Pros: This property is BEAUTIFUL, fully restored with great Westin beds and lots of Hawaiian extras (we got so many free treats delivered to the room including chocolates and fruits!). We went for Thanksgiving and the main areas were beautifully decorated for the holidays during the time we were there. You can walk right onto the beach (see below) and... More

There is no questioning that this hotel has a great location and that the old part of the hotel is a grand old lady but it needs to be dragged into this century in terms of staffing and accomodation. I have stayed here a total of 6 times in the last 20 years and there is huge variation in room... More
