My wife and I LOVE this hotel. We stayed at the Moana this fall because a couple in our church raved about how wonderful it is. We had previously stayed at two other hotels in Waikiki, both on the beach, both respected brand names, both fine hotels. But our friends going overboard seemed out of character for them, so we...

The "brand new" Moana Surfrider, originally opened in 1901 as the first hotel on Waikiki, is a wonder to behold. A recent 20 month closure updated the Moana, bringing her back to her original glory but with modern amenities. Stay in one of the historic wings if you can. From your arrival, complete with a lei greeting to the historic... More

We stayed one night in the Banyan city room on the back side of the hotel away from the street. It's a beautiful hotel inside and out. Loved the "heavenly bed" so nice and comfortable. The hotel is close to stores and restaurants. The outdoor bar is a little noisy but they usually close early, so the noise didn't really... More

Staying in Waikiki is not inexpensive - be prepared to shell out some higher end room rates for the privilege of staying in the heart of the action. For that reason, I think hotels need to strive to meet customer expectations, and many fail. Not so with the Moana Surfrider. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival with seed leis... More

We purchased a vacation from USAIR Vacations and chose this venue fore our stay. I requested a room in the "old section" with a king bed and ocean view. We were given room 312. From the reviews I've read I expected it to be on the smaller side, but it was perfect with a veranda. (One of the very few... More

We arrived on the 13th of December to a warm gentle breeze, and easy transport to the hotel. Usually we rent a car, but this time, booked Robert's airport transfers through the SPG website. Great price of $58 per person round trip. We exited the baggage area to be met by a Roberts employee with our name clearly on the... More

Moana Surfrider brings memories of old colonial hotels in the Far East such as Raffles in Singapore and the Peninsula in Hong Kong. It is perfectly situated on the main drag in Waikiki with the beach as its backyard. It is just a gorgeous hotel!

We went to Moana Surfrider with a 5 and 8 year old to unwind and it was perfect. The original hotel rooms are surprisingly large and great value, especially with the club room access for breakfast and drinks. For us it was a great compromise between a family hotel, which there are lots of in Hawaii and a luxury hotel.... More

My mother, brother, and I stayed at this hotel for 9 days. We originally asked for a two-double bed room + rollaway. We are SPG members and they let us look at the rooms before checking in since we were going to be there for 9 days. The first 2 rooms we looked at were fairly small in the tower... More
