    A wonderful experience in Hawaii. The amenities, beach bar, access to the beach, fitness center, and location are perfect. The overall feel of the place is like a hotel you see in movies. It is pricey for the average person but well worth it in my opinion because come on, you are on vacation.

    Stayed here for 5 days and had wonderful time. Our room got upgraded to a higher floor in the tower and the room was nice, but the view was amazing. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is beautiful and has a lot of character from the Victorian era. Pool is not that nice, but the beach chairs were available for booking and we enjoyed our time just chilling on the beach. Bar staff were friendly and made great drinks and the food was also very good. Would definitely stay here again.

    Wake up, check the surf from your balcony, enjoy breakfast under the banyan tree right on Waikiki beach. Grab a board out front and have a surf. Yes it's old. Rooms are small. The area is crowded. It was built with the nicer rooms facing the mountain side because customers originally arrived by boat and wanted the island view instead of staring at the ocean after months on a ship. If you want a regular hotel room go stay at the Hampton Inn. If you want modern luxury, the four seasons resorts in Hawaii are wonderful. If you appreciate the history and location of this place it's hard to beat.

    Such beauty and elegance at this hotel. We stayed there while on our honeymoon ❤️ I love the architecture of this hotel, it was very romantic. It even has a beautiful art gallery and a lovely gift shop. We had easy access to Waikiki Beach. We really enjoyed our stay in Honolulu! You must experience it at least once!😊

    This is how customer service should look. We had booked a Diamond Head Ocean View room for 5 nights. Unbeknownst to us that during two of those nights there were weddings that went until 10 pm. We have young children that need to go to bed early and the music kept us up. When we brought it to the attention of the managers they were graceful enough to compensate us accordingly. Cannot say enough good things about them going the distance in that regard. Hotel was otherwise clean, great big rooms, nice balcony, great staff, would stay again.

    Such a memorable stay for us. Keith at front desk provided us a great room during check-in and helped us along with our stay. Hotel is literally on the Waikiki beach, and is in the center of all entertainment and shopping. Rooms may be a bit old, but this is what we want to be part of historic building. Service are always great. I definitely plan to come back again this year.

    Beautiful historic hotel in a great location. Right on the beach, near the Duke statue, across the street from shops and restaurants. Wonderfully convenient, we walked everywhere. Amazing views from the balcony. Breakfast in the morning on the veranda, music at night in the beautiful courtyard under the Banyan tree. The surf lessons were great. Not as many amenities for kids (just a basic pool) but perfect for adults. Would stay here again!

    Great location, excellent service, and awesome beach. Bathroom was a little dated, but the bed is comfortable, water is hot, and water pressure was good. Our ocean view room had a beautiful view of Waikiki beach from the balcony. Good on site dining options, especially the breakfast. You're better off going across the street into the International Marketplace for multiple restaurant options for dinner.

    What a beautiful hotel! Staff was very friendly, accommodating. Rooms way more than we expected and the ocean view fantastic! What a beautiful old hotel that's been updated but still has it's understated original charm and luxurious feel. I can only imagine what the "First Lady" looked like in it's early hey day. Hope to return and spend more time.

    Beautiful hotel and a beautiful location. Can be a little loud at night being on the main strip (this place never sleeps), but it’s part of the energy and atmosphere. The staff was amazing - upgraded our room to a beautiful suite for our honeymoon!

  • 5Jacob K. 10 months ago
    The Moana Surfrider is simply a great great resort. From the minute you arrive to the second you depart the staff always go above and beyond, from the people at the valet to the people at the reception desk all of the employees were extremely helpful. The grounds of the resort, alongside the rooms and views make it an extremely attractive resort. Not to mention the location is central to everything making the stay that much easier by having everything within a few footsteps.

    Remember to use ʜᴏᴛᴇʟʙᴜʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏᴍ when booking any hotel. They compare hundreds of booking web sites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! You're welcome :)! This resort is one of the best in this area. I have been staying here for a long time. If you stay for a few days you definitely won't be disappointed. Very nice hotel, right on the beach! And on a shopping strip. Great service. Restaurant is pricey, but there's allot of other places to eat for less. I would recommend this place and will come back too!

    The 1st hotel on Oahu full of history and so beautiful. Staff are friendly and professional. We didn't upgrade our room so it was small but we didn't plan on living in it so it didn't bother us. Free beach towels and 1 complimentary Dole Whip from the snack bar. Spectacular view of the beach and ocean while sitting on the veranda or sitting in a rocking chair shaded under the breathtaking banyan tree in the courtyard. Highly recommend staying here if you can afford it.

  • 5Karen P. 1 year ago
    Beautiful hotel and surroundings. The room is very clean but a little small. The view of the ocean is awesome. Check-in went smoothly with very little wait. Clerk was very helpful explaining everything and getting us settled.

  • 5Lovie W. 1 year ago
    The lobby and rooms were so comfortable. We stayed 2 weeks and had booked 2 rooms side by side. Easy access to everything , we booked activities that were all on time. The flowers and grounds were taken such great care of. Some nights we enjoyed live music under the banyan tree. The beach was clean everyday . We will stay there again on our next trip.

  • 5ajay p. 11 months ago
    Overall a great resort with the closest proximity to the beach. Tower rooms are updated and service is great. Be aware that in room dining/ room service is closed due to Covid measures. Rooms at the historic hotel are closer to the pool and banyan tree where live music is played till 10pm. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

  • 5Peggy G. 1 year ago
    Wonderful atmosphere! Gorgeous courtyard. Amazing food. Excellent service. Bed linens extremely soft. Only down side was their DAILY resort fee of $42 that many customers did not know about! This fee is in addition to room fee and taxes.

    Everything is amazing. This hotel has it all from great room to great service. The whole staff makes you feel like Ohana (family). Great spa, great food, great service and great pool just like the most amazing beach. This hotel is located in a great street full of stores and shops. Just walk a few blocks and you have everything. I totally recommend this incredible hotel.

    The hotel is a historic building in Honolulu. It was the first hotel in Waikiki to open in 1901. This venerable hotel has a great location right on the beach with plenty of good restaurants and beach bars. In the area you can great shopping or strolling. We had a room in November 2006 with a partial lake view. The staff was friendly and helpful.

  • 4Clara J. 1 year ago
    wonderful location and exceptional service from the staff. Room definitely is small for the price point. Few things in the bathroom needed attention from the maintenance which very slightly dampened our stay there. The view outside our window overlooking the beach was so beautiful and the easy access to the beach was definite cherry on top.

  • 4S. 8 months ago
    I had my "final" meal on the island from the restaurant, beachside. It was such a special night, and hearing the waves crash with the live music and lovely lighting was just the cherry on top! I wasn't super impressed with the drinks but the food was superb, I would recommend at least a visit here, once on the island.

  • 4Stacy N. 3 months ago
    The hotel was beautiful and our room was amazing. We had unbelievable views. Definitely the best of the three islands we visited on this trip. Service was very good, and they were attentive. Location couldn't be beat. One side the water, and the other side fabulous shopping. We ate breakfast at the Veranda restaurant and it was really, really good. I didn't realize our reservation included breakfast vouchers. But even if it hadn't I would definitely recommend Verandas for breakfast. The first night we ate at the Beach Bar. Nice views, but food and drinks were disappointing. We each got 2 drinks, and neither of us drank them. Then we split a burger and fries and the bill was over $100. Server never checked on us or asked about the still full drinks. And we were disappointed to find that room service was temporarily closed. We had the perfect balconies to have meals on. But overall would definitely recommend the hotel and the Veranda Restaurant.

    Great hotel! The front desk was super nice and the views were great. A little sad they discontinued room service due to covid.

  • 4Kristi S. 8 months ago
    Rooms are clean but tight. Located directly on beach so always loud regardless of late night/early morning hours. Very busy place so you seek out a hike or your room for seclusion. The beach bar does not have happy hour and wine by the glass is $18 beer $10. To rent a chase lounge it's 45 for half the day and you must reserve in advance but location is great!

  • 3Brittany T. 10 months ago
    This place IS nice, but it was way overpriced for the dates we stayed. Over $1000 a night after fees for an oceanfront room. What is with the old fashioned showers in a room this expensive? Honestly, I'm not even sure I got the room I paid for since it was more of a side view of the ocean. Also, why is there no hot tub at a hotel this expensive? The beds were very comfy and the hotel and grounds were beautiful, I just feel there was more to be desired for the price point.

    Went here for our honeymoon- beautiful hotel but a lot of improvements could be made. These were our negatives. We spent $4k to stay here for our honeymoon yet if you want a sunbed round the pool you have to get up early due to people leaving towels on them and disappearing until later in the day If you want a sunbed on the beach these are an extra $80 A DAY!! The ones which have four posts and a curtain attached are $200!! So for us even spending $4000 to stay at the hotel it seemed we were lower class and laid on the beach with sand blowing on us. One night we went to sit in the main bar area where the piano / music is played- with our coffees that we just bought at the hotel outside bar and was told the seats were only for people spending a two drink minimum- our coffees didn’t count - again we were made to feel like the poor lower class guests. The last other thing was breakfast. We had complimentary continental breakfast and the servers were very quick to point out it only included one drink and not lattes - again $4K spent to stay there and I can’t have a bit of steamed milk in my coffee. I just think that’s very mean and poor form. Maybe the managers making these rules should concentrate on the cleanliness as the restaurant could do with a dust. Things were way overpriced in the hotel which I would expect but $12 for a (non alcoholic) frozen kona coffee from the pool bar. TWELVE DOLLARS!! All in all nice hotel way overpriced

    Beautiful hotel. We did not get the king size bed we had asked for. The girl checking us in said we were going to be in the best room according her because of its gorgeous views . She was right. Great views. She failed to mention that we were 3 floors above the garden where they host/perform affairs like weddings etc. the music literally vibrated our windows til 10 pm every night we stayed except one….(4 of 5). Also, the room they put us in that supposedly was so terrific , was so tiny you could barely get around in it. Wait staff at the Veranda were wonderful . Also the resort fee you have to pay per day is not worth it. No chairs or umbrellas available. We did find a company on beach by outrigger that we used everyday cheaper anyway.

    You cannot beat the location of this hotel and the historical importance of the building which has a beautifully restored lobby. Sadly they guest rooms are just dated and sad. The bathrooms and showers are from the 80s, I’ve stayed at holiday inns with better showers. The hotel just does not have enough lounge or for that matter sitting space for their guests. So, even though, you are charged a daily resort fee, unless you are up at 7 am snatching a pool chair or pay up 85 dollars for reserved only beach ones, you will have to grab your towel and fight for a spot on the beach. Skip this hotel, just come for the day to Waikiki and you will have the same experience without the expense.
