My hubby and I stayed here in January of 2011 and it was great. The service, the amenities the location and the staff were great! The restaurant was great. I would stay here again. Actually, I won't stay anywhere else if we can get a room here.

Oahu was the last leg of our trip. We had visited the Surfrider on our last trip and knew we wanted to stay there. Great location on Waikiki. Historic. Beautiful. Well maintained. Staff is friendly, professional. Our room looked out over the Kalakaua and the mountains. Have to say that if you;er looking for a place with a great pool... More

I loved staying here at the Moana Surfrider! Right on the beach, huge, spacious hallways, very nice rooms, and a porch complete with rocking chairs. It doesn't get much better! The staff was very attentive and helpful. They even told us that our favorite college basketball team would be staying there and when we might be able to catch a... More

We've been to Hawaii a few times now and the Surfrider is definitely our favourite place in Waikiki! Everything was fantastic from the staff through to the restaurants and spa. I don't think you could go wrong staying here! We can't wait to go back

A nice hotel in a pretty good location convenient to most of what you might want to do in Waikiki. Our room in the main/old building was very small and seemed to cater to a Japanese tourist more than an American businessman. The building and grounds were charming but the beach was narrow and crowded and the "rental" cost for... More

We had a Deluxe Ocean View Room which was good, however the bathroom was a little small. Could not fault the staff in all areas, from check in to the bar under the huge Banyan tree (which was right on the beach) to the restaurant to the boys looking after our luggage. The whole atmosphere of this first Hotel in... More

I loved our stay at the Moana Surfrider. We stayed in the new part of the hotel, not the historic, original section, and our room was perfect. It was tidy, spacious, and overlooked Waikiki beachfront. The sunsets over the beach are to die for, and we always had a warm breeze blowing through our room. The beach is literally a... More

I took the historic tour of this hotel. The young man who conducted the tour seemed to be a novice who was learning his job. It was not nearly as good as the tour I took previously. It took less than an hour and we did not even view one of the hotel rooms.
