We spent a few hours sitting at the bar at the Moana Surfrider. This hotel is right on the beach so the sun off the water was beautiful, the staff was helpful and outgoing. I would definitely stay here when I return to Honolulu - beautiful, on the beach, right downtown with activities, shopping and restaurants close by.

We stayed at the Moana Surfrider in January 2015. As the other reviews mention the rooms in the main hotel are rather small, however, we did not spend much time in the room as we always touring, hanging at the pool/beach or out for a meal. The location is fabulous and the hotel itself is just beautiful! We are so... More

This was our second time here and we enjoyed our stay both times. Service was friendly, obliging and efficient. Big smiles and any problems sorted out with the same. We like the location best. We were with three families with teenagers and there's lots to do along the Waikiki strip without having to organise transport. Restaurants, shops, beach. And we... More

This is a lovely hotel. We stayed in the tower wing on the 19th floor. Fantastic view of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. A majority of the hotels in Honolulu are extremely dated, but they have kept Moana Surfrider in amazing condition. Our room was a fantastic size. Beds were comfy, and balconies were a good size too. Bathrooms were... More

All rooms great, the city view rooms are a little more noise. Everything is wonderful I.e location, amenities, staff. Problem is the beach seating. No longer can have any drinks with alcohol on the beach. They have new rules about what type of lounge or sand chair you can have. My husband has bad knees and couldn't get a chair... More

I love this property right on the beach. Our room was tiny but we got a good rate because we are AAA members. Few amenities but the bed was very comfortable and high quality linens. Service was quick and efficient and very helpful. Beautiful plantation style building. Nice bar on and near the beach. We saw several weddings going on... More

We paid for a premier ocean view room and it was great. large balcony over looking the famous Banyan tree, resort, the beach and diamond head. Fantastic sum rises and ocean views.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights after staying 3 nights at the Trump down the street. If we could do it all over again- we would skip the trump and stay here longer. The resort is absolutely beautiful, the 110 year old banyan tree right in the middle of the property adds so much character...and helps provide... More

My son and I stayed here on our first trip to Hawaii. When you drive up to the front door of this hotel, there are valet staff who are very kind. They'll take your car and store it somewhere for you. When we walked into the lobby of this hotel I knew we had made the right choice. The lobby... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for a ten night stay. We have stayed at other Westin locations and loved it. Both were very much looking forward to it. We booked through Expedia and there was a small mix up so we had to stay in a smaller room the first night that not cleaned when we arrived. Since... More
