My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Moana numerous times through the years. Sadly each time we arrive we discover they have discontinued many of the amenities and now have become more aware of the bottom line. I was shocked a few years ago when they started charging 35.00 to sit on the beach. I... More

We stayed in one of the renovated rooms in the Tower wing, we were upgraded to a premium suite on arrival which was a nice touch. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, the premium suite had sweeping views down Waikiki beach and a large balcony. What we liked most about Moana is the character in the architecture, the rocking chairs... More

Had a fantastic experience at the Moana in November 2013 - corner room had an amazing view of the beach, the Beach Bar was delicious, and the location was fantastic! The thanksgiving buffet was just delicious. There was a slight issue at check in, however the upgrade to the corner room more than made up for it. Would definitely return.

Having visited this hotel at least once a year for nearly a quarter century, we obviously have had many pleasant stays here. This year's visit, though, topped them all. Past reviews noted that premium SPG members should be prepared for reduced amenities compared to mainland properties, but last month's 10-day stay demonstrated emphatically that such a warning is out-of-date.

This review is little late but needs to be done. My husband and I stayed at Moana Surfrider in October for our anniversary. We arrived and greeted by friendly staff with refreshing juice cocktail. We were checked in very promptly and they upgraded us to nice room with great ocean view in the historic wing even though they misplaced our... More

This is the fith time we've been to the Moana, and each time we've been, we've also been to another island, if that makes sense. It's quite a thing for a Brit to go to Hawaii, due to the vast distances, so you can imagine visting the Hawaiian Islands five times in nine years makes us experts from a UK... More

Terrific location, history of building and sunsets to die for. The only downside in what is an absolutely great place is: You pay for chairs on beach despite room rate was not cheap. Also, food was not quite up to the standard of other good restaurants in Waikiki. Great bar and band under Banyan trees. Good view of beach from... More

We arrived at the Moana Surfrider and was greeted by the friendly staff as we checked in. The room we had been booked was just a city view room and we immediately asked if we could upgrade this as we wanted an ocean view room for the remainder of our honeymoon. Josh on the reception was extremely helpful and he... More

This is my second visit to this hotel, both times in the historic Banyan Wing. This time I went for one of the cheaper (but still incredibly expensive) City view rooms and that was a huge mistake. However, the ocean view rooms are so prohibitively expensive. My room was right above the front entrance and at the top of the... More

We stayed in Hawaii for a month and really enjoyed our time at the Moana Surfrider. It's a great location; and everyday we relaxed on the rear and front porch either in the morning or evenings.
