“Very Nice. Great Location”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I stayed here for 5 nights of my 8 night vacation to Honolulu. This was my favorite hotel. This trip was actually a last minute decision for me but I was still able to get a decent rate directly through the hotel's website.

Large hotel lobby, easy, pleasant check in. The lobby was always full of activity night and day. There are several shops, a Starbucks and a couple restaurants/bars on the first floor. The room I had was spacious and very clean but the view wasn't great. Guess I should've paid for the upgrade LOL. Nice size bathroom and sufficient closet and storage areas. The bathrooms products they provide are awesome! I wish I knew the brand.

This hotel is in an excellent location, right on Waikiki beach, at the end of the Waikiki Beach Walk. Despite being in the middle of all the action, I was not disturbed by any street noise at night. I had a rental car but most of the boutiques and restaurants I went to were within short walking distance.

I enjoyed great times at the pool, the lobby bar, and both restaurants right off the beach. All employees I encountered were very nice and helpful.

The only thing I wasn't pleased with was the lack of help by the pool and on the beach with beach chairs, drinks, etc. Overall though I was happy with my stay and when I visit Honolulu again I would definitely consider staying here. There are just so many options for accommodations, there are other hotels I'd also like to try.

Room Tip: Make sure you visit the Peter Lik gallery at Waikiki Beach Walk

The outrigger is in the perfect location to everything, beach at the doorstep, shops and restaurants the other side, everything in walking distance. The hotel staff are very helpful and nothing is too hard. Perfect hotel to laze away or get amongst the action. The walls are a bit thin and you can hear the neighbours coming and going. Definitely need reef shoes for the beach as the sand has broken shells through it and the ocean has rocks and no sand. Definitely recommend paying extra for a partial or full ocean room. We were here for our wedding, didn't get married at the hotel but had the best time and already planning when we can get back!

Aloha Louielou79,
Thank you for taking the time to share your review of your recent stay at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. We are glad that you appreciated our ideal location and that you found our staff to be very accommodating to your needs. The area directly in front of our hotel can be a little rocky but the beauty of it is that it is a reef area and you can often see sea turtles. A more sandy area is only a few feet away. We apologize for the noise you experienced from your neighbors. Congratulations on your recent marriage and we are delighted that you chose to spend your honeymoon with us. We are excited to hear that you are planning your next visit. We will be happy to be your host again. Mahalo and Aloha.

My wife and I travelled to Hawaii for the first time for our honeymoon in October 2013. The resort was amazing friendly staff, location, and beautiful rooms with views of the ocean to die for. Only down side for us really was the very short walk to the popular tourist beach where there was not so much coral for swimming. Have recommended this hotel to so many friends now and would definitely be the spot we stay when heading back to Hawaii. Thankyou to all the staff who made the start of our honeymoon truly special.

This resort had all the elements my husband and I were looking for on our trip to Hawaii. The location was great, in a quieter section of Waikiki still very close to all shops and restaurants. Situated on the beach made for easy access to the beach and the view from our ocean view room 707 was beautiful.
Room was spacious, check in was the best I have had in a while, Susie I think her name is, was very efficient and gave us a good run down of the resort and its surroundings.
The only negative was that we could hear noises from neighbouring rooms which was annoying at times. We also had an issue with our door not locking, but this was rectified as soon as we notified staff.

The only downside to our stay at the outrigger reef on the beach, was the fact that we only got one night here! The staff here are fantastic. We arrived at 9am fresh off the plane from an inter-island flight and reception were able to check us in to our room straight away. The room was great! Clean, big and very comfortable! We had lunch at the hotel ocean side restaurant (Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar) and then dinner at the pool bar/restaurant (Kani Ka Pila Grille). Service and food at both were great! Highly recommend! Location is good, about a 5 minute walk to the main strip of shops and right on the beach. We left at 4am the next morning. Bellboys were fantastic and had a taxi already waiting for us!

We would definitely stay here again!

Aloha & mahalo for taking the time to share your experience while staying here at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Although we wish you could have stayed longer, we were delighted you made the most of your short time by enjoying both of our restaurants, the Shorebird and Kani Ka Pila Grill as well as the nearby shops and our world famous Waikiki beach! We will share your kind remarks with our entire hotel staff and hope that the next time you visit us, it will be for much longer! A hui hou (until we meet again).

We stayed on the 9th floor partial ocean view room which had a beautiful view of Diamond Head some of the beach plus a view of the pool. No doubt, this is a bustling hotel. At times the room was very noisy as we felt this building might not have been well insulated. Sounded like chairs being pulled in/out additionally you could hear the pounding of feet (loudly) on the floor above us. Beds were "full size" which for 2 adults traveling with 2 teenagers felt a bit "snug". Bathroom is nicely updated. House keepers and the Bell Captains were super friendly and accommodating. Beach was very crowded with a rocky ocean floor. We did find the beach a few doors down more comfortable. Location: you can walk or take the bus/ free trolley pretty much anywhere in the city. EI. to the mall or main strip of Waikiki. Teenagers were thrilled to have a Starbucks in our lobby. Evening time the live music pool side was a very nice touch as the sounds flowed throughout our room and the hotel which gave the location a nice tropical vacation feel. I wouldn't be against staying here again, but perhaps would look else where first.

Room Tip: Higher levels ocean view/partial ocean room. I would NOT go for a city view room here. Pool is small...

We stayed here for a meeting/vacation with our 2 teenagers. We loved the location and were comfortable letting our kids be on their own. We had 2 business dinners (without kids) and the hotel was very good about helping us get our kids set for the evening. All of the restaurants we good and the valet was speedy. We would definitely stay here again!
