Known as "the first lady of Waikiki," the oceanfront Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, Waikiki Beach combines turn-of the-century Victorian elegance with modern amenities. Located in the heart of Waikiki, we are a short walk from shopping, dining, and attractions. Retreat to the shade of our historic banyan tree, splash around the pool and ocean, or recharge at our WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio. Soothe body and mind at our Moana Lani Spa, a serene sanctuary set amidst a true tropical paradise on Waikiki Beach. Enjoy Hawaii as smart and sophisticated travelers have since 1901. Recent renovations have revitalized all 793 guest rooms and suites, many of which offer spectacular ocean views as well as the signature Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath.
The pool is very small, opens late and closes early. The beach umbrellas $50 a day and also close too early. One or the other should be open at least till sunset.
Great location with great views. iPad in the the room was a cool touch
Considering the cost of getting a room at Moana Surf, I expected the room facilities could be upgraded (ie...shower and other parts of bathroom
Pretty much Everything!
Pool and beach seating was very limited
From the moment I walked in the door, I fell in love with the old beach vibe. The understated luxury just oozed from the place. The staff was amazing and always attentive to our needs from dinner plans at check in, offering a hospitality suite after check out because we had a late flight. Truly amazing experience and 100% worth the price tag!
The staff were incredible and helped so much. Our flight was leaving late at night and they let us use a hospitality room to shower and get cleaned up before we left for the air port. The staff at the restaurants on property were fantastic, epically Omar at The Beach House. It's a quiet gem in crazy Waikiki.
The Banyen tree at the rear of the hotel was a great hangout.
The older part of the hotel (8 storey section), the A/C was very noisey and the corridor had a musty smell, the rooms need a makover, the bathroom is very outdated. apart from that the ocean view room we had was good.
It is a classical hotel with long tradition. Even with 4 stars only it trys to keep a high level. Its absolutely perfectly situated on Waikiki Beach. Great view from most rooms.
The rooms are for todays standard too small. The hotel, the restaurant and the services are too highly priced.
Truely beautiful Hotel, an experience we will never forget.
The air condition was noisy all the time and couldn't sleep well. The light of the bedside table was out of order, however the beds were very comfortable.
We stayed at the ocean front view room, but the view was not as good as we expected considering the rate of the room.
