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.

Aloha, Mahalo for your comments. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the convenient location of the Moana Surfrider. With popular shopping outlets, attractions, and the beach, guests are offered a an array of experiences all within walking distance. Both our Diamond and Tower Wing guestrooms are newly renovated, so am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your accommodations....

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 are in room 520 which is tiny but really cute/charming and although no balcony (not that we were expecting one) there is a beautiful beach and Diamond ahead view.

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...
