Amazing views! Expensive to eat and drink though. Pool closes at 5pm which was way too early but you have the beach right there and gorgeous sunset to watch from the beach. Good service and great fun live music. The Verander Restaurant was lovely fine dining, again though expensive. Perfect location.

But this last visit I've celebrate my wedding anniversary and birthday last aug. And as always this place is excellent. Complimentary Buffet breakfast and love the beach bar.

I recently stayed at the Moana Surfrider in Honolulu for a friends wedding and in general the hotel was very nice but there were a few points that were disappointing. Firstly if you have children who love to swim and have adventures in the pool this hotel is not for you. The pool is tiny for a hotel and was... More

My wife visited Waikiki for 4 nights after spending 6nts in Maui. I originally wanted to stay at Halekulani but it was full so we settled on Moana after a recommendation. I always check out other hotels to see if we made the right choice for future reference. Moana tops them all - even Halekulani. In my humble opinion it... More

We were there the last week of August 2014. The most unique hotel on the entire island. Very clean, comfortable bed. Plan to stay there again. Staff was very friendly. The Rocking Chairs added a homely twist. The best location in Waikiki. loved it...!!!!

Hotel is very nice and rooms are clean and generous with space.Staff are friendly and helpful if you have any questions. The down side of this resort is you have to pay an extra $31.41 daily charge as a local tax.there are many hidden charges at this hotel that you will not be informed of by your travel operator.

I am currently here on a business trip and can't really say much positive. I have stayed at most SPG properties in Hawaii, but this one is by far the worst. From the moment I checked in there was a long line (they did not enforce the separate SPG gold/platinum line) and no SPG platinum recognition, which I can deal... More

The hotel is in a great location with both charm and a great atmosphere. At the same time it had all the modern amenities I could think of. The old building is great, with the front and back porches, beautiful views, and the great bayan tree with the bar in the back. The beach and pool area are small and... More

The Moana Surfrider is a great place to stay even for a business traveller. From Frank at the valet stand to Karen in the Beach Club, you won't find anything but impeccable service and a very friendly staff. Frank is great to help with directions and Karen quickly becomes a friendly/welcoming face. And talk about service, Karen went out of... More

I stayed at a couple of hotels on my recent trip to Honolulu and the Moana Surfrider was my favorite. It is such a beautiful old building with lovely vintage decor and the perfect location, right on the beach. We got upgraded to a Tower Ocean View room and it was fantastic. We got two balconies (one looking out over... More
