A classic, truly Hawaiian hotel, located directly on Waikiki Beach. The location was ideal and was a fabulous spot right on the strip. Approximately 20 minutes from the airport, but everything in Waikiki is then in walking distance from the hotel. Pool was small, but nice. Front balcony with the rocking chairs was fantastic. Would suggest renting lounge chairs on... More

Last visit 2 years ago was just my husband and I and we splashed out with a Diamond Head room in the new tower, it was amazing ---- this time we had our two daughters with us and were in the older block. The Moana Surfrider is a beautiful historic building, and great they have retained the character of yesteryear... More

I visited in June with my family of two teens , husband and mother. You really feel like you are in the heart of it all. Sometimes the club access could feel a bit crowded but you're in a city! I loved the rooms, loved our dinner at the Beach House, daughter enjoyed a massage and a SUP board rental,... More

Being a former resident, the Moana stirs my heart for its elegant beauty and I would stay here time after time. Some reviews here are less than stellar, and admittedly, the Moana is not the newest, most modern hotel some might expect. But the location, views of ocean and Diamondhead, and the spirit of gentle aloha shown by staff (we... More

Wow, I love the history of this beautiful place my cozy corner room has million dollar views. From the curbside valet to the exceptional hotel staff, this has been an amazing experience...pure bliss. I'll not stay anywhere else in Waikiki.

Great Location, excellent service from all staff, a bit of history to it being the first hotel in Waikiki. We had ocean view so was great leaving doors open and just listen to the waves roll in. I am sure there are many places more modern but this is still just right. A drink in the outdoor bar under the... More

This beautiful historical hotel was a wonderful place to stay for our family. The banyan tree was the focal point of the inner courtyard, young ladies dressed in wedding gowns walking through the halls and being photographed, all helped to create a magical stay in the Surfrider. We did request to stay in the older part of the hotel, as... More

This hotel is certainly overrated. Whilst it's clean and nicely presented it doesn't deserve the 5 star rating it has. Location is good, but rooms are average , some very sub-standard. Costs within the hotel are excessive...breakfast buffet cost us $84 USD. It is constantly busy with weddings...often 3 or 4 each morning. I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

I stayed in Westin Moana Surfrider for a 1 night stay only and the hotel was very well located, clean, comfy and charming. It is located in the very heart of Waikiki and a footstep away from the beach. Rooms are quite spacious and clean. I've been ugraded to a Tower Ocean view room in the newest wing of the... More

We recently spent a week at the Moana Surfrider, and found it to be a lovely hotel. After staying in a few other hotels in Waikiki, this one would go to the top of our list. We visited in the height of summer (including 4th of July), so the hotel was at full capacity. Despite the fact that there were... More
