We've been coming to the Moana Surfrider for many, many years now and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Honolulu. The first stay was just before our youngest daughter was born and she's now 22. Both our adult daughters still holiday with us and rate the Moana as their favourite hotel - as do we. Our last stay in December 2013...

We had the opportunity of staying at hotel for 4 nights over Christmas in a partial ocean view, which was spacious even with 2 double beds and a rollaway plus a large balcony. The partial ocean view rooms look directly into the Outrigger Waikiki, which is like 25 meters away so be prepared that everyone can see you in on...

Very comfie location in the middle of Waikiki but old room and so many people all the time. Good to stay first time but room was old even though tower building. And so many people all day n night. Good to try hotel tour. Check with concierge but no need the reservation.

Great location in a congested area. Rooms are nice but small. Staff is very good but always handling a complaint at the front desk. Waikiki is what it is, the Galleria on a nice beach. For the price I expected more but moved on to another island to celebrate New Years.

An amazing beach front resort. Book an oceanfront table in advance for the breakfast. One of the best ocean front breakfast views I have ever experienced. Plan a few hours on a lazy day to watch the boats and beginner surfers with diamond head as an inspiring backdrop.

Stayed in one of the older rooms. Very charming with a great view of the courtyard banyan tree. The older rooms are small, though. Service was fantastic. This hotel was a ridiculously beautiful lobby.

We consider the Moana our home-away-from-home when traveling to Hawaii. This really speaks to the level of comfort, hospitality and escape from the hustle of Waikiki that we find at the Moana. As we've come to expect, service was impeccable and the hotel just beautiful, especially more so as it was decorated for the holidays. There were some changes since...
