Upon arriving at Moana Surfrider, we were placed into the "Diamondhead Wing" which is a horrible part of the hotel with decor and amenities that appear to be from the eighties. The room was ridiculously small and smelled of mildew. I have never complained about a hotel room prior to my stay at Moana Surfrider however, I called the front... More

My wife and I stayed at the Moana Surfrider in early Feb 2008 for 4 nights. I was in Honolulu for business and a couple days of vacation and my wife was able to come with me on this trip. We booked a cheap room directly from a special on the Westin website ($209/night). We got a city view room... More

We arrived at the Moana on Xmas Day in 2007. We were greeted by the most beautiful reception area, and an ambience that was immediately relaxing. The Moana Surfrider is perfectly located, directly on the beach. It features rocking chairs on the front balcony - great for people watching, a small but sufficient pool, a selection of great restaurants, a... More

This hotel is historic. The first multi-story hotel in Waikki. Prime location. Beautiful interior. First class service. We stayed in the newly renovated Banyan Wing and the Westin bed was heavenly. We only ate once at the buffet breakfast which was fantastic with a wonderful view of the beach. The only fairly minor issue we had was the music in... More

My wife and I just returned from our third trip to Oahu in as many years. This was our first stay at the Surfrider and enjoyed the experience so much that a review was in order. We arrived very late at night and weren't greeted by the customary lei and cold juice spoken about by other reviewers. To our dismay,... More

We arrived at the Moana Surfrider on Dec. 30th for a stay thru Ja. 2nd and were immediately taken aback by the beauty of the Moana. The hotel is magnificent both inside and out. The outward beauty of the Moana Surfrider truly does set this hotel apart from the other hotels on Waikiki Beach. It truly is a gem on... More

This hotel is beautiful and has a historic atmosphere. The rooms are beautifully furnished, as well. This hotel is right on the beach which is convenient after a dip in the water. Though, since the hotel is right near a main street, street noise was a bit of a problem for me. At night, you can hear the musicians. In... More

From the outside, the Moana Surfrider is an elegant hotel, with a distinct, historic yet pleasing exterior. Upon entrance to the lobby and check-in desk, you will notice the openness of the lobby, with large (no doors) entrances into the hotel and out onto the patio/veranda and beach. Upon check-in, we are greeted not only by the usual room keys... More

Moana Surfrider hotel photos speak for themselves - it is a very charming, historic hotel in a fantastic location, however, we encountered some issues during our stay related to; the size of the "double" bed, noise levels outside 6th floor city view room, construction noise in veranda area etc. We also felt that due to the fact we had booked...

We held our wedding here on the beachside lanai, with the reception in the adjacent ballroom. It was beautiful, and they went out of their way to make sure every detail was taken care of. We had a suite in the "new" tower, but I spent the night before the wedding in a room in the original building with a... More
