Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

With its rich heritage and stately décor, ‘The First Lady of Waikiki’ is a legendary resort that combines turn-of the-century Victorian elegance with modern Westin amenities and luxuries. Relax by the lovely pool area, under the shade of the historic banyan tree or on the hotel's private beach section. Dining is a treat here — from the elegant oceanfront setting of Beachhouse at the Moana and the delightful island tradition of afternoon tea at the Veranda at the Beachhouse, to the Surfrider Café's healthy meals to take with you to the beach. For a pre-dinner glass of wine or artisan beer, head to Vintage 1901 overlooking the banyan tree, or enjoy a tropical libation with live entertainment at The Beach Bar.

Our family had a dinner at the Beach House Nov 13th to celebrate my husband’s Birthday. Upon arrival reception staff was very friendly and escorted our seat right away. William was our server and he was very attentive to our needs. Explained the menu very well and his recommendation was spot on. We enjoyed our dinner and the special acknowledgement that William provided to my husband’s birthday. We had our wedding ceremony in 2016 at Diamondhead lawn at this hotel so this place is very special to our family. Thank you Beachhouse, William and Westin Moana Surfrider. We will definitely be back again. Read less

To me highly overrated, very expensive for what you get or not get, would not recommend it to any one, we didn,t even have a working fridge in the room which was very small, food over expensive as well as the bars

Beautiful hotel, enthusiastic and helpful staff, great location. The rooms are beautiful and the whole place is spotless, views good and the location on Waikiki Beach is perfect.

Beautiful hotel, enthusiastic and helpful staff, great location. The rooms are beautiful and the whole place is spotless, views good and the location on Waikiki Beach is perfect. This is a busy area of town so if you want something very quiet, head elsewhere. Otherwise, not a single complaint. Feels like home from the moment you walk in, albeit with a friendly concierge and right on the beach. Would stay again. Read less

My family enjoys their high tea. We've experienced them in Europe, Asia, North America and now Hawaii. The Veranda at the Moana Surfrider offers an outstanding afternoon tea. Local flavours with traditional favourites are beautifully presented on a three tiered plate. Everything was very fresh and obviously prepared with skill. The service was the attentive but non intrusive. We never felt rushed. Sitting on the open veranda under the banyon tree while watching the scene on Waikai beach was delightful. Highly recommend.

From the moment you arrive the unhelpful concierge makes sure you feel like a bother. We as a couple where placed in a 2xdouble bed room besides booking a king. The aircon is noisey and no cutlery and to get some you have to pay $20 and it took 30minutes to get some, cutlery is a basic in all hotels how is it ok to make people pay. This hotel… Read more

The aircon is noisey and no cutlery and to get some you have to pay $20 and it took 30minutes to get some, cutlery is a basic in all hotels how is it ok to make people pay. This hotel looks nice but the bathroom we had had black mould growing on the roof and it was cracking. For a Westin Hotel this is the worst I have stayed in and I would recommend staying at The Royal Hawaiian down the road, slightly cheaper, bigger rooms, better service and not as noisy. I won’t be staying here again. Read less
