HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I tend to take stellar reviews with a grain of salt. I had been given the name of Surfjack by colleagues who had stayed there a couple months before, and after reading all the reviews I booked two nights starting a 10 day Hawaii vacation. To put it mildly, this hotel is amazing! From the moment I walked in after...

What an awesome, laid back hotel with exceptional staff! Our room with two double beds was immaculate and comfy. The famous pool was being retiled, but the Surfjack made arrangements with a hotel near the beach to provide chairs, umbrellas, etc. We loved the Surfjack - central to everything!

A little away from the madness of Waikiki beach, lies the super adorable Surfjack. The views shouldn't be the reason you stay (since they're not great), but the convenience (easy walking to all of the shopping, restaurants, and beaching you could ever want), and the adorable factor. The staff were phenomenal straight out of the gate, and the grounds and...

Had a wonderful nights stay in this amazing quirky hotel prior to flying home to California. Would definitely stay here again. Staff were so friendly and helpful.

Fiancé and I stayed just one night to try it out. And liked it. Room was large, quiet and comfortable. Location was very good but we preferred being right on the beach. And the balcony, while nice, looked right into the building next door. But whoever designed the hotel did a great job. Design wise one of my favorite of...

The Surfjack is an oasis in a sea of skyscraping tourist filing cabinets. The location is convelnient and the rooms are well-thought-out with a timelessly calm feel.

We had 1 night in Hawaii on the way to NYC.We wanted to stay in a smaller hotel & could not have been happier with Surfjack. The staff were delightful, & the hotel was extremely comfortable. A great place to stay in Waikiki with a very cool vibe.

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, 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. ... more   less
