Money will be your first consideration

The lobby interior is awesome. Lots of couples went there to take photos. Rooms are okay. Partial ocean view allows me to see a part of the Waikiki beach. Wish we'd booked the full ocean view room, but that's too expensive. The value for money is just okay. Good location. You can just walk to the beach in 2 mins. However, the beach can be accessed by other people from other hotels. So, living in this hotel doesn't really have a strong competitive advantage. Overall is good. I WOULD recommend this hotel to my friends.

beautiful hotel

Beautiful hotel on the best location in all of Waikiki. It may seem pricey, but having stayed at most of the other beach front hotels in Waikiki, when comparing them to the Moana, the slight increase is more than worth it. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is kind , attentive and helpful. The old Hawaii feel embraces you from the minute you walk in. The location is the best in all of Waikiki. I go to Waikiki a lot, and hope I never have to stay anywhere else again.

Great Hotel - Perfectly located

Always a pleasant stay. The staff is great. They are over the top nice. The hotel is beautiful. It is perfectly located at the end of Waikiki. Easier to get in and out of than any of the other beach front hotels. Short walk away from everything in Waikiki. The only downside is the room rate, but for the level of comfort and luxury, it is equal to the other hotels in the area.

Avoid eating at the hotel, any of the hotels really. Go to any of the local food places instead. Right across the street they have regular farmer's markets in the evening with great local food at low prices.

Overall, great place

This was a great experience. The only negative aspect was how my friend and I were treated once they knew we booked through a 3rd party travel agency/package deal. They saw that we were young (and assumed we had no money) and in combination with the package deal listed by our name, and gave us the smallest, hidden away room possible. But was still a nice place.

Terrific holiday

Fifth time in Waikiki but first time at The Moana Surfrider. It was fantastic, love the history and the location on Kalakaua. Beach is shallow but rocky however almost worth the toe stubbing are the turtles coming up for air almost right beside you, feeding on the rocks below. Fantastic. Friendly and helpful staff though out the hotel. Would definitely choose Moana Surfrider again. As there are always the pool chair hoggers that just throw their towel down at 7am to "reserve" the chair, the pool staff actually check and enforce the unattended one hour rule! I love it.
