Lovely Atmosphere in the Original Building

The original building is gorgeous and the foyer very welcoming and has a south pacific charm. The pool area is a non-event - go to the beach instead. Breakfast is a nice venue on the verandah, but the food is standard fare - nothing special and expensive. Restaurant choice is limited to the one outlet which also does the standard line up, fish chicken, steak - but plenty of options nearby. Wine list not so good. Sunsets are lovely here. Probably the best beach front location in the whole strip.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a walk and have breakfast else where to save money and avoid repetition. Try Bills Sydney for a breakfast without fried potatoes and fresh juice. Bills probably do the best coffee in the strip too - the other just sell warm milk...

Charming hotel in the heart of Waikiki

This hotel was really lovely to stay at. The entrance, verandah and courtyard areas are worth the stay alone. You won't find a more charming hotel than the Moana Surfrider. It is an oasis of calm. Breakfasts on the verandah next to the banyan tree - ahhh! Beach at front of hotel is really good, too.Recommended.

Classy but small

Fabulous location, beautiful elegant hotel. Room was beautifully appointed but a little on the small side. The breakfast buffet was utterly superb and it was wonderful having this included in the deal, and whist I can't afford it I am sure the tower suites with the ocean views would have been the best bet for a longer stay. The toilets that do all the work for you are the bees knees!!

Great Location in Honolulu

Great Ambience and location, right in the middle of Waikiki Beach. Room size and layouts vary - just need to ask reception.

Celebrating 60th!

Since this is a 5 Star hotel you would think that it would be immaculate! You would be wrong!! The carpeting in our room was filthy!! Not just a few spots of dirt, but lots and lots! We had a city view and it was extremely noisy. We had a small balcony on the street and the windows in other rooms that we could see was severely in need of a paint job. I don't know who gives these hotels their 5 Stars, but they should take a closer look at this hotel and put them down to a 3 Star at best!! I also requested a king size non smoking room on your site and when we checked in the woman told us our "queen size" room was not ready yet and she was upgrading us to a "king size" room. I told her that I booked a king and not a queen. She said this was a much better room that she was giving us. Very disappointed in this hotel!

Review of our staff at Moana Surfrider

The location of the hotel is second to none. It also has an amazing lobby and beachfront presence. We were a bit disappointed at the amount of 'partial ocean view'. It was hardly worth paying extra for. We seriously missed having a small lounge in the room; leaving us to sit on the bed or on the chairs provided. Our biggest disappointment was the lifts in the tower we were in. One was continually out of service the whole time. We continually had to wait what seemed ages for a lift to arrive; and then it would be full. When we were able to get into the lifts, we regularly experienced problems with all of the lift selections disappearing, meaning people had to lean over each other to re-select their lift choice or attempt to converse in whatever language they spoke to the person nearest the selection pad. The next time the lift stopped, the same problem would happen, meaning we had to re-select our choice of floor sometimes up to 5 times going up or down. These lifts were the worst I have experienced in any hotel I have stayed in.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cheesecake Factory fills a large void when trying to find the type of western food one might be accustomed to back home. Any number of places will serve up fast food or traditional fare, but the Cheesecake Factory had great food at great prices.

Great if you intend to be out

Banyan wing rooms are small. Tower rooms are a good size but most rooms have no view (looks into the next resort). Located in the heart of waikiki so great for shopping and food.
