We booked this hotel because of the reviews. Best hotel! Decor is fun and the service is the best! Huge mention to Sai! He made everything great for us! We had 21 family members flying in and he helped so much with everything! Would stay there again and would not stay anywhere else on Waikiki!

Love this place! The service was great and the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The food at Mahina and Suns was delicious and inexpensive compared to other restaurants in the area. Very satisfied with the service at the restaurant. Special thanks to Kenny at the front desk for his professionalism and assistance during our stay. Will be back soon!!

Couldn't have asked for more got the price. Service was great, rooms were lovely and the bed was amazing!! Would definitely stay here again in Honolulu. Location was great too and despite being right in the action of Waikiki it was quiet at night in the room.

Friendly staff in a well maintained facility. Construction behind and around could be noticed when truck backup beeps started early in the morning. The $25 per day add on fee with a $10 daily credit to be used or lost at the restaurant - was just an add on cost, as we did not feel that the menu was as... More

Intensive research made me choose The Surfjack Hotel. Total chill, away from the busy shopping crowds but perfectly walkable to beach, restaurants, & luxury stores. Saying that, we ate at their hotel restaurant Mahina & Suns for Thanksgiving & a few times more for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Really good homemade style meals (ex. Pork adobo fried rice bowl, poke bowls). Live music... More

We initially had reservation with another hotel but we had some problem after checking in (around 11pm) and decided to stay at another hotel, which was the surfjack hotel. Although it was past midnight, a front desk staff name Chris was extremely friendly and helpful. He provided a very clean and nice room. Also, other staffs were very friendly ad... More

The surfjack was great, the rooms were nice and the staff were excellent. Special mention to Kenny who went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. Would definitely stay here again. The restaurant is very popular so make sure you book in advanced.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An authentic Waikiki experience awaits you at this vibrant new hotel located in the center of the action. With handcrafted design elements, surf-culture throwback & modern touches, you'll feel the energy of Waikiki at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. The Surfjack is home to stylish apparel shop, Olive & Oliver, and Mahina & Suns, renowned chef Ed Kenney's newest eatery. Guests also gather at the Swim Club - our outdoor pool and sun deck area where we share cultural programs and unique events as you sip on a cocktail (or two) and maybe jump into the pool because the moment was oh, so right. The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club offers renovated bungalow style guest rooms, in addition to spacious one, two, and three-bedroom suites. Each charming guest room includes air-conditioning, a refrigerator and a private balcony. The feel of open space and the handcrafted style in decor creates a sense of curiosity and serves to inspire adventure. The Surfjack is situated in the heart of Waikiki and offers easy access to prime shopping, dining and nightlife, and is located just three easy blocks to Waikiki beach. From morning surf sessions to sunset catamaran cruising - it really is an endless summer. For the moments in-between sand & sun, take a short drive to the art and culture communities of Kaka'ako, Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown for a true urban-Honolulu experience. Join us and immerse yourself in the ebb and flow of the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki. ... more   less
