Stayed there 3 nights but also bumped into a couple that stayed for 9 nights...we all agreed this is by far the best hotel in Waikiki. They gave a list of 5 other hotels they stayed at (I only remember Vive) said Surfjack was by far the best. We ALL agreed that we All did not venture out of the...

There was a scheduled power outage on Schofield so we decided to get a hotel, I searched for two weeks looking into all the different places in Honolulu and all the various booking sites. Based on the reviews, we decided to chose Surfjack. I booked the one bedroom suite since we had our two toddlers with us and when we...

This hotel has not overlooked a single detail when it comes to service, ensuring the guests are happy and an amazing staff! From the time we called for last minute reservations, until our last minute request for late check out due to flight changes, the staff was amazing! Extremely clean facility, rooms and linens. We were welcomed with curb side...

This is my second home when I do business in Waikiki. There is something magic about this gem, from the moment you step into its revitalized-retro #WISHYOUWEREHERE lobby. The staff, the coffee, the design, the details, the intangible experience that recalls the wonders of Waikiki. I recommend this hotel for a memorable experience in authentic hospitality...and of course, aloha.

This is a nice hotel that was renovated earlier this year. It has a 1950's vibe to it; you will feel like you are in an Elvis movie. The single room was a bit tight but as I said the hotel was built in the 1950s or 1960s. They show old movies on the wall about the pool which I...

The Surfjack Hotel & Swimclub was on my bucketlist for a while. What a unique hotel so one of a kind. It takes you back in time. When I was passing by Honolulu I took my chance to book a stay here. It is hard to explain how cozy it felt arriving there. They did an outstanding job creating a...

You can't go wrong with a stay at The Surfjack. The whole experience is top notch - from the laid back coolness of the rooms, the exceptionally friendly staff, and the local culture-infused activities. The hotel is also very conveniently located in the heart of Waikiki, but set back just enough from the main strip to be very relaxing. I...

A friend and I met up in Waikiki for a week and booked this lovely hotel primarily because it had two-bedroom suites at a reasonable price. It's an older place that has been very recently remodeled and I was impressed by the results. The place was spotless and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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, Olive & Oliver, and Mahina & Suns, renowned chef Ed Kenney's newest eatery. 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 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, 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. ... more   less
