The setting could not be more perfect. The water, the beach, Diamond Head and the banyan tree. Add a few drinks, spicy mango chicken wings, juicy burgers and music and you got a perfect evening. One complaint is they would not let me buy two drinks at the bar without the second person (my wife) present. She was sitting where... More

A plum location in the midst of Waikiki , beautiful beach, heavenly beds and our room had a huge deck with a sectional on it, overlooking those azure waters. Downside: busy place, a wedding every time we crossed the lobby (not all bad really) and a tiny bathroom, I may have chosen poorly but my dinner at the veranda was... More

A beautiful, well maintained hotel full of character with excellent views (stay in the tower, ocean views). We stayed on the 3rd, 8th and 20th floor during our three visits in Dec/Jan. All good with excellent views and we enjoyed the low key, easy listening music from the bar in the evenings which finishes at 10pm. We actually opened our... More

The hotel and staff are wonderful and the location is ideally set in the heart of Waikiki beach-close to anything you could want to do. Definitely a unique and eye catching hotel. The beds are Westin quality which is like sleeping on a cloud. A couple tips: Consider a tower room. There is a lot of street noise that is... More

This hotel doesn't live up to the Westin reputation. It is in a great location, but stay at one of the other numerous hotels in the area. Great buffet breakfast, if you can get one of the staff members to actually share with you the information on it. We kept being told we could get waffles and pancakes, but could... More

Stayed on 11th floor in tower for seven days. We travel to Hawaii every year for 6-8 weeks which mostly consist of stays in Maui with a week on one of the other islands. We had not been to Honolulu in years and thought it was time to again pay a visit. The amount of traffic and people has grown... More

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
