An authentic Waikiki experience awaits you at this vibrant new hotel located in the center of the action. With handcrafted design elements, surf-culture throwback & modern touches, you'll feel the energy of Waikiki at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. The Surfjack is home to stylish apparel shop, Banks Journal, and Mahina & Suns. Guests also gather at the Swim Club - our outdoor pool and sun deck area where we share cultural programs and unique events as you sip on a cocktail (or two) and maybe jump into the pool because the moment was oh, so right. The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club offers renovated bungalow-style guest rooms, in addition to spacious one, two, and three-bedroom suites. Each charming guest room includes air-conditioning, a refrigerator, The Indigenous Soap Company® Hand Soap, and a private balcony. The feel of open space and the handcrafted style in decor creates a sense of curiosity and serves to inspire adventure. The Surfjack is situated in the heart of Waikiki and offers easy access to prime shopping such as world-famous International Market Place, dining and nightlife, and is located just three easy blocks to Waikiki beach. From morning surf sessions to sunset catamaran cruising - it really is an endless summer. For the moments in-between sand & sun, take a short drive to the art and culture communities of Kaka'ako, Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown for a true urban-Honolulu experience. Join us and immerse yourself in the ebb and flow of the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki.

Stayed there for three nights and would not hesitate to return. Older hotel that reminded one of 60s and beachboy area. Clean and friendly. Very good on site restaurant and coffee in the morning available by the pool. The staff were outstanding and a special thanks to the front desk and a great guy named Sheperd who was so helpful and friendly. This was a very good stay and I would recommend.

We spent a week at this boutique hotel. It has such a playful vibe and great employees. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The location was perfect for our stay in the city and our escapes outside the city. And for walking to shopping and dining. I enjoyed the surfer decor. The bar and restaurant are convenient and gourmet.

My husband and I ended our week-long stay on Oahu with two nights at the Surfjack. It came highly recommended - my sister had stayed there with her five-year-old when the hotel first opened and absolutely loved it, and the pictures on the website were really appealing. Great design. Loved that it's dog friendly. We also didn't want to be smack in the middle of Waikiki, and the hotel's location was walkable to the beach/shops, but away from the major crowds. Check in was smooth, and the staff was very nice. But walking to the elevators, I started noticing how worn the hotel was, like it had really seen better days. The hallways were kind of dirty (they're open air) and there was some trash laying around. When we got inside the room on the 3rd floor, our one-bedroom suite seemed much smaller than in the photos, and again, everything seemed worn - the furniture chipped and stained in places, the sofa kind of flat, the grout on the bathroom sink coming off. It was pretty clean in general, just kind of old-looking. And the view, wow: hello, next-door multi-level parking garage! It felt like it was 15 ft away and made the room very dark. So we called the front desk, and the woman very kindly switched us to the same room on the 9th floor, which was much better. Slightly less worn, slightly better view. Later we'd find the bed was pretty comfortable, and there was a lot of closet space. The room safe didn't work, though. Other amenities: the coffee bar had pretty good coffee, and the little shop had some interesting clothes and home goods. Also had a really good breakfast at Mahaina and Sons. The pool was never that crowded, even though it's kind of small. And there's a hotel mascot dog! Her name is Winnie, and she's very cute. All in all, not terrible. Would be great if it got spruced up a bit. Choose your room wisely.

We loved our stay at the Surfjack. From the initial check in to the pool and dining experience, we found everything to be well-thought out and priced appropriately. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Oahu.

Malik and Hoku at the front desk had me covered for my stay here. They helped me understand the area and had a great knowledge of local restaurants, bars, beaches, and Sightseeing. Would recommend for any solo, couples, or family stay.
