Step into history. This must be one of the oldest properties on the island still standing. Sitting on the veranda, one can imagine guests having breakfast as Pearl Harbour burned, as war was declared and later won. Like the Raffles in Singapore, it is beauty, style, and grace situated among the modern monstrosities surrounding it. Yes, the hotel is bullseye...

Since 1998 a favorite stop is the outdoor bar at the Moana Surfrider and Craig the Bartender has been there to make it for me this whole time. Beautiful view, excellent location, and potent cocktails. Tells you something about a place where Craig the Bartender has been working there since 1980. Tell Craig that "Rog" sent you for one of...

A very enjoyable dinner with nice music and great vistas over Waikiki beach with the sun setting. Good menu and drinks were reasonably priced. Excellent waiter service. Entertainment was great as well with a duo and hula dancer, then a guitarist.

We choose this hotel because we thought it would be nice to experience one of the older quaint hotels here, rather than the massive high rise hotels. the courtyard area was a nice touch so we ended up spending a lot of time there!

Loved waking up to the sun rise over diamond head. The front desk staff helped us find the best of the island. You must see the banyan tree in the court yard at night. Old world charm with all the modern emanates.

The location for the surf rider was perfect, right on Wakiki beach. The architecture of the building was stunning. As platinum members at SPG, we were upgraded to a honeymoon suite which was pretty.

Lovely style hotel. Beautiful courtyard and fabulous banyan tree. Rooms could do with more storage rather than the day bed. The WiFi was EXTREMELY slow and very frustrating. Barely functioned. Definitely not high speed.
