This is the second review I've written on this hotel only this time I'm a mother and my perspective is different. I hope my comments might be helpful to other parents deciding to come here. We just returned from a 5 day stay here with our 3 month old daughter and were very pleased with most of the stay. We... More

I am a Big Island resident who stayed for two nights in June, 2006. The room was simple, but elegant and very clean. Although this is in the heart of Waikiki, it was extremely quiet and the beds were so comfortable. I was very well rested each day. I was already amazed with the most courteous valet and front desk... More

We spent 7 days We just got back from spending 7 days at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider for our honeymoon. There is no other place that I would ever stay. We're 27 and 30 years old. Good Things: 1. Location, Location, Location. It's right on the beach and close to everything. You can't get a better spot. 2. Great Staff.... More

Had to post this, as there was such an unhappy review posted by someone else--sorry for that experience, but Tea on The Veranda has always been a pleasure! I was there May, 2006 and ordered the vegetarian sandwiches, as I did not care for the other choices available--no problem they were available and pleasant enough. The tea choices are excellent,...

What a beautiful place to stay!!! We stayed at this hotel from 15-20th of June 2006. We made a last minute reservation through "Starwood Preferred Guests" 1 week before we left (we joined "SPG" 5 minutes before making the reservation, I think that it helped our stay). We requested a city view room with 2 full beds (US$260 p/n) as... More

I went with 5 friends to high noon tea. The atmosphere with the ocean in view and a beautiful banyan trea courtyard was lovely, but the prices were outlandish. I am a vegetarian and told the waiter who proceeded to scold me because he had nothing to give me! We had delicious tea. Everyone else had 3 sandwiches with a... More

My daughter's wedding was held at the Moana Surfrider several weeks ago in May. My husband and I, along with the wedding couple and several family members stayed at the hotel. The greetings with cold towels, leis and juice were fabulous, especially after a long day of travelling. Checking-in was a very pleasant experience and we were all thrilled with... More

Overall an excellent hotel that I would rate a solid four stars. A couple of comments: I paid ~400 USD/night to stay in a deluxe ocenaview room in the Tower which I thought was definitely worth it. The location is the best on Waikiki in terms of the beach and access to the surrounding attractions. The hotel is overall very... More
