This was our first trip to Hawaii & after reading so many wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided on Outrigger Reef. Wow, best decision we could have made. This hotel is beyond magnificent.
Our room had that 'wow' factor as soon as we opened our door. We had decided on an Oceanview room & it didn't dissapoint. Our view was over the beach/ocean & up to Diamond Head. The room was clean, spacious & quiet. Leaving the balcony door open at night, hearing the gentle sound of the waves, was a perfect way to sleep. Our housekeeping lady Yue Ling was such a lovely lady. She would greet us each day with a lovely smile & would ask us what we had planned for the day.
We had breakfast included in our package, so we tried all 3 restaurants. The buffet at Shorebird was dissapointing (only had this once). Selection is very poor. The Ocean House Restaurant had amazing views & the staff at this restaurant were exceptionally nice. However, our favourite restaurant for breakfast was Kani Ka Pila. Their vegetarian omelette was delish - we kept going back day after day for this amazing dish. The staff at Kani Ka Pila went out of their way to please us & the atmosphere beside the pool was lovely. One thing also - the coffee at all 3 restaurants is amazing. Mum & I are not coffee drinkers, however, we'd wake up each morning thinking coffee. Something about that Kona coffee left us wanting more.
All staff at this hotel were helpful, happy & friendly. From the moment we arrived, to the time we left, all staff we came in contact with were genuienly helpful & happy. It isn't just a job for these people, they clearly enjoy their work in paradise.
We recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Honolulu. It's down the quieter end of town, away from all the noise & crowds - however close enough if that is what you are after. Location is right on the beach & Waikiki Beach Walk is right across the road.
We hope to visit Honolulu again in May next year & we will again head back to Outrigger Reef.
