'The First Lady of Waikiki' was constructed at the turn of the 20th century, and the Moana Surfrider lives up to her elegant name as a Waikiki beachfront property. Upon arrival, you'll be treated to a signature Westin elixir, a fragrant flower lei, and a refreshingly chilled towel. Catch a great night's sleep on your Westin Heavenly Bed, and soak up traditional Hawaiian healing techniques and treatments inside Waikiki's only beachfront spa. High-end toiletries, superior linens, and comfortable bathrobes adorn the accommodations, while the refurbished lobby features hardwood floors, along with new fixtures and fittings.

Best vacation

The Moana Surfrider is beautiful, we love it! Great for families. Best location. Rocking chairs and coffee shop in the front are the best. The music on the outside patio every night is perfect.

Great but expensive hotel!

When I first checked in, I was disappointed to see that the room was much smaller than the pictures I looked at online. Fortunately, they still had a couple rooms available in their tower but I ended up paying an extra $80 per night for the room. Make sure you know how large the room that you're getting is. Sure, a king size bed and tv can fit in their room but those things can also fit in my closet at home but I wouldn't call it a "room" (especially at a "resort and spa"). Other than that, the amenities were great and the staff was superb!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you can wait till you get to Hawaii or have someone send you some free guide books that are all over the island you can save alot of money on entertainment and adventures like a luau, para-sailing, submarine tours etc.

Luxurious couples stopover

Only a short stay but we wished it could have been longer. Luxurious rooms with comfort in mind - quite possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced in a hotel with decadent linens. Staff were great, restaurant food exceptional. The room was a little small - compact but bijou! We will definitely be back and recommend it.

Holiday in Paradise

Location Location Location, The Moana Surfrider is in the perfect location. The main attraction is the beach which is beautiful, even more so if you are sitting under the magnificent banyan tree sipping a cocktail as you watch the sun set over Waikiki Beach. It is this sort of magical moment that turns a holiday into a life time memory and to experience this in the old world charm of the Moana Surfrider Hotel was something special. The hotel is within easy walking distance of other resort hotels located on the beach front. If that is not enough there are shops and restaurants located along Kalakaua Ave which is right at the front of the hotel, and if you need to go future afield there are numerous trolley buses that run into the evening to get you around Waikiki and Honolulu.

couples getaway

The hotel location is great. The ocean view from our room was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable. I think the rooms themselves could use a facelift. The decor was boring and minimal.
