We have been visiting the islands for two to three weeks every some summer for years. We have stayed all over but particularly love staying at this hotel for its location on the beach, the vibrancy of the restaurants, the breakfasts at the Hula grill, the music on the deck at Duke's, the kids learning to hula dance, the staff and so on.

We just had our first really bad experience when on check in we were told that our reservation could not be honoured since the deluxe oceanfront rooms we had booked had only king size beds even though our reservations clearly stated that we required two beds in each room. The reality is oceanfront rooms with two beds are plentiful and less expensive than the deluxe rooms we had booked. No one at Outrigger seemed to have bothered to tell us that our request could not be honoured until we arrived hot and tired after 17 hours of flying.

No realistic fix and, worse still, no attempt to make nice by front desk staff or "powerless" management as oceanfront rooms were all sold out. So our overpriced beds were overcrowded on our first night in paradise.

Still love the Outrigger though.

Room Tip: Read carefully to make sure you get what you think you are booking.

Aloha Eric B. Thank you for returning to the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. We are very sorry your reservation requests could not be honored on your day of check-in. Our Deluxe-Oceanfront room category consists of units with only one king-sized bed, thus we could not have honored your request for two beds in any of those rooms. Please be assured that our staff would have been more than happy to accommodate you in an Oceanfront room with two beds, which does not have a Jacuzzi tub as the Deluxe Oceanfront units do, if the category had not been sold-out on that day. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. Mahalo Nui Loa.

Hotel is in the best location on waikiki with all the shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Hotel is right on the beachfront so it only has a small pool but the beach is so nice and stunning there's no point in spending time at the pool.

Has a few small shops and souvenirs available at the hotel and a few restaurants to eat at most of which face the beach. Prices are also reasonable for a hotel.

Rooms are decent size but best to ask for a room furtherest from the street as the main road can be noisy till about 10pm at night as it is very tourist based so weekdays aren't excluded from the noise.

Not to far from the hotel is the stop for the pink trolley which cost US2.00 per person to got to the main shopping mall, comes every 10 minutes.

Room Tip: Choose a room furthest from the Main Street just to avoid the noise

The first impression of this resort is the wonderful atmosphere and the very helpful staff. Its position was perfect and central to shopping and restaurants. The beach was amazing and the access from the resort was great. All public transport was right out the front and easy to get on. All our pre booked tours ran without any problems. The drinks and food at dukes were fantastic and the free poor was unreal. Overall it was a great place to stay and we will defiantly return.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the street are a little noisy so I would recommend a higher floor at the rear of the hotel.

We splurged and got an oceanfront room on the eighth floor. The Outrigger even offered a military discount. Before we even arrived, the staff at the hotel exceeded our expectations. Keith helped us with our resevations and later with a package that we had to have delivered. We rented a car on Oahu and were constantly in and out of the hotel, and the valet guys were so friendly and always offered us some local advice. We were able to walk to many restaurants and shops from the hotel, and especially loved having Dukes in the lobby. We also really appreciated the fruit flavored water that was always available in the lobby.

We have stayed at the outrigger waikiki for 4 years in a row, each time for 12 nights. Our family loves this hotel, the staff, location everything about it is great. Rooms are always clean with friendly housekeeping staff who are always smiling. We prefer to stay on the diamond head side of the hotel as the side that faces the Cheesecake Factory is loud from the restaurant fans. The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere or grab a cab from out front. There are no resort fees at this hotel either, wifi is generally good and they have a Hula Grill and Dukes restaurant on site. We are excited and looking forward to our next winter holiday!

Room Tip: We prefer the diamond head side of the hotel, partial ocean view on a high floor
