'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.

Week in paradise

We spent the week relaxing on the beaches of Oahu--a different beach every day: two days on the North Shore, two days on Waikiki, and beaches on the East and West sides of the island. It was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. We thought staying in Waikiki would be expensive, but it turned out to be very affordable. We didn't want to leave!

Snorkel at Shark's Cove on the North Shore. It's free and really amazing. Stop and see the turtles on the way! Eat breakfast at the Hula Grill above Duke's. It's delicious and fairly priced.

1st time Moana & 30 Years Later in Waikiki

The Westin Moana Surfrider fulfilled numerous expectations and provided incentive to return for a longer stay. She has a foot in the past and a foot in the now that will continue into the future for there is nothing like her on Waikiki. While the nightlife on Kalakaua has become more intense from what I recall 30 years past, the Surfrider maintains its charm and on the Beach comfort for relaxation. The staff is courteous, helpful and provides top-notch service. Arrival Manager Casey King was attentive to our needs and went over the top to assure our stay would be in his words “relaxing, refreshing and memorable.” Roxanne at the excursions desk, and Colin and Gloria at the pool and beach side service were fantastic. The Westin Moana Surfrider has a fabulous breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, and a classic veranda for dining. Fitness and Spa are conveniently accessible as with Yoga and Hula lessons for those wishing to experience diverse activities. Nightly entertainment in the Banyan Tree Beach Bar courtyard who's setting can't be compared to any other resort on Waikiki. The Moana Surfrider is a thriving resort whose energy flows like the breeze that carries the spirit of the Islands. We were loyal vacationers to Cancun but I think we've found a new home. Well done Moana Surfrider!

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Hawaii has a passion for her unique lifestyle and good living, happy moments and calming of your spirit if you allow yourself to slow down and learn to enjoy what is there. The diversity of cultures in the islands provides foods from all around the world and some recipes are in a state of flavor fusion. Experiment and try small establishments. The name brand eateries are predictable and can be pricey. Entertainment is also a necessity for fine and enjoyable dining so seek out where the “Local” talents are jamming (Tiki's Grill & Bar). Don't forget to "suck-em up! It all works together. There’s everything you want by foot, public transportation, rental car or nearby hotels. If its to busy then head out to outer Islands. They are all good for what suits your temperment.

Fantastic Place!!

We really enjoyed the location of the hotel and the staff was extremely friendly. The room with the ocean view is great and the beds were comfortable. I recommend the buffet breakfast in the morning. Everything went was great and I would recommend the place to anyone!

Wow what an amazing hotel

This hotel has the charm and grace of an old southern mansion. I chose this hotel because it was completely different from anything on the island. The staff was amazing and I was impressed by the friendliness and caring that I received from everyone there. Excellent service, great rooms and a really great price.

There are a ton of local and chain restaurants nearby. I highly recommend eating at those instead of the hotel. The pricing for in-hotel eating was astronomical.

A short walk to everything

Our plan was to go to the beach every day, and this was the ideal hotel to do it. It's literally about 10 feet from the beach, and there's an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand on your way back in. Paddleboards, surfboards, and the like can be rented about 20 feet down the beach. There are easily 20 restaurants and shops within walking distance. We got a room in the tower. It was spacious and clean and modern. It had a fridge, but no microwave. The balcony was big too. The Wifi network was unreliable. My wife's iPod touch and my Android phone were impossibly slow on the wifi. Next time, I'll bring a laptop and connect to network cable in the room.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't rent a car: take a taxi. If you're traveling with two or more people, and you don't plan to visit the other side of Oahu, taxis are an affordable and stress-free way to get around. So much is within walking distance you'll rarely need a taxi anyway. Parking everywhere seemed to cost a lot.

possibly best value for money in Waikiki

Love this hotel. Would absolutely return. They got all the small details to make a vacation relaxing and enjoyable right. Only downside was that the king room we stayed in was small but we had an ocean view to compensate. I was expecting this though because the pictures on the website did not sugar coat this. Friends stayed in a room with double beds and the size of the room was more of what you would expect-quite adequate. Had a beautiful court yard overlooking the ocean. Did not nickle and dime us for amenties either. Would recommend.

Perfection in Paradise

The historic hotel is centrally located in Wakiki. Nice access to beach, shops and excursions. The hotel helped with tours and has everything for all all types of stays (family, couples, friends) and budgets. Updated fitness center and pool is located just off beach but has privacy. Clean and comfortable rooms. The hotel had several weddings there and would consider it when I get married. It has its own indoor chapel, large patio/lanai for reception of outdoor ceremony and the hotel is perfect to takes pictures. As a photographer, it is ideal.

The location of the hotel has many attractions within walking distance or a short city bus ride. Take the time to walk around and find out what is around first before booking tours.
