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.

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.

Great Girl's Getaway

The hotel and the staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean and the perfect size for our 4 night stay. Since we were staying at an ocean front hotel we did expect more hooks, racks to hang our wet towels and swimsuits. We were surfing as well and found that we were having to be very creative to hang our wet items. The food in the open dining area was disappointing. The prices were extremely high for the poor food quality and small portions. Although, the cocktails were generous. We did not try the formal dining room. We ate most of our meals at Dukes, next door. The food was delish and fresh and very reasonable. Other than the two issues mentioned above we had a wonderful time and will definately stay at the Westin again. The bed was heavenly! The hotel is beautiful and the location is fantastic.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Request a fridge as they are free and the Pantry grocery store is a mere two blocks away. Stocking your fridge with a few snacks and drinks makes for a more confortable experience and saves you a bit of cash.

Waikiki's most elegant property

Moana Surfrider offers its guests a beautiful beachfront property. The main lobby of this famous historic hotel is elegant and classy -- you will NOT find sandy, barefoot surfers traipsing through this lobby. The open air design allows for plenty of outdoor seating in the front and back of the open lobby. There's an outdoor bar with plenty of seating next to the pool. And the beach is just a few more paces beyond the pool. There are rooms in the main building and also in the Tower Wing. I liked staying in the main building because it's just more historic somehow. On the downside, the room didn't have a patio or balcony. My room was also facing Kalakaua Ave where many street artists show up in the evenings. Unfortunately there was a drum set across the street on 3 out of 5 nights which was really quite loud. Next time I will fork out the money for an ocean view room so I don't hear the Waikiki bustle at night. This was my first visit, and all in all I have to say that it's now among my favorite Waikiki hotels with Royal Hawaiian and Sheraton Waikiki.
