Alternative to Moana Surfrider please.

This will be our second visit to Oahu. The first time we stayed at the Moana Surfrider. This was a lovely hotel but we felt a little out of place after a big day out, trudging back into the foyer laden with snorkels, flippers and towels amongst such eloquent surroundings and sophistocated bridal parties.

Can I have some suggestions for "nice but casual" Ocean views, King and comfy bed definitely a must. It is just my husband and me past the kids stage. I was thinking of the Hilton Waikiki Kuhio Hotel but not sure.

Try the Royal Hawaiian, this is also owned by the same chanin Starwood that owns Moana, but, haS A separet entrance for swimmers, the New Otani kaimania, also on the beach, Hyatt regency, is not on the beach, but across the road, but faces the beach-good luck

Wow -- not a very good reason to avoid the Surfrider. You'll run into a similar situation in most nice hotels. This is Hawaii ... the sand and the bathing suits are the norm.
