This place is all about that banyan-tree-covered courtyard. There are a couple of restaurants, a bar, a snack bar, a pool, and of course beach access from there. It's nice. (Probably not ideal with kids; the pool isn't huge). It's hard not to love this area. My room this time was in the Tower (last-minute planning), and was nice but...

Reviewed 15 June 2014

This hotel is over 100 years old, and sticks out in the best way possible from modern hotels and stores up and down Waikiki. The room was nice enough-nothing incredibly special, but suited our needs well. We loved taking a drink to sit under the huge banyan tree in rocking chairs each afternoon. There was some construction going on nearby,...

We loved the Moana Surfrider. It is beachfront in the heart of Waikiki. You are walking distance to restaurants and shopping. It is also the site of many of the trolleys that transport visitors in Waikiki. The hotel has a combination of older(restored original) architecture with modern conveniences of today. Beautiful courtyard under large famous banyan tree with outdoor dining....

It's a classically designed hotel with a lot of history - for better and for worse. On the plus side, the public areas are gorgeous and the inner courtyard is great, with a big banyan tree providing extensive shade, live entertainment, and the beach just on the other side of it. But on the downside, our room was very small...

We stayed at the Moana for 5 nights the week before memorial day weekend. Still an excellent place to stay. But they no longer greet you while waiting in line to check in with a damp cloth to refresh yourself with. Housekeeping took 2 days to figure out that for 2 people we needed 2 washcloths and 2 handtowels. Kind...

My wife & stayed from 4/20-4/26/2014. My wife was really impressed w/ the ocean and sceanery from our balcony. We will definitely stay on our next trip to Oahu. The hotel made our 20 yr anniv. more enjoyable knowing we could sleep & cool off in a clean suite with just the amenities we needed.

This is a great hotel with a much more "old world" vibe than most of what you see in Waikiki. The beach bar is, by itself, enough reason to stay here. Right on the sand with amazing Mai Tais.
