Close to everything in Waikiki, right on the beach. Rooms are nice and restaurants and shops ate good. Only complaint is wi-fi. It's free but is so weak it's almost useless and the cell signal is weak here too, so Internet, email, texting are severely limited.

Our stay at Outrigger Reef was great! Pleasant and courteous staff, nice corner room with 2 balconies and a partial view of the ocean. Very relaxing stay. Located close to everything we needed. Starbuck's was right out front with another just a short walk. The post office was also only a short walk away as well as many shops and... More

We went for a full week and it was wonderful! The hotel was great! Loved our room. Starbucks in the lobby. I bought a watch in the gift shop. Great location in Waikiki- walked all over the place! There are so many shops, restaurants, beaches, etc. all so close by. The BLT steak house across the street was amazing. The... More

We loved our stay here, the food was good, the room was great and the views were even better! The staff was nice and helpful but really, we didn't have to have much interaction with them. We were in the middle of the action and a short walk from many restaurants and bars.

Great beachside location. Beach rentals at the backdoor. Tried stand up paddle boarding but there really is a reef on the beach so expect a bit of damage to your feet if you fall off. You can walk the beach in either direction. Great village atmosphere at the front door. Plenty to eat. No complaints about our ocean view room.... More

This review is well overdue as hubby and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon a few years ago. We had a partial ocean view room which also overlooked the pool area and back towards the mountains. The breakfast buffet in the hotel was incredible and had everything you could want. Hotel is in a great location for restaurants... More

One of the best places to stay in Waikiki. Good price, fantastic service & located close to everything. A step to the beach or pool. Shore Bird bar at the back of the Oitrigger is friendly, vibrant & lots of fun. I have met amazing people from all over the world here. There are lots of beautiful places to stay... More

I've had the opportunity to stay at the Reef a few times prior and have always been satisfied with my stay, and this time was no exception. I stayed 8 days over March, and found the hotel to be on par with my previous stays. There's something to be said about consistency in terms of hotel stays. Take advantage of... More

I've been to Honolulu 3 times, and spend most of my time at this hotel. Just got back from 2 weeks on March 19th. The staff is very friendly, it's very chill, open, and non-pretentious. The hotel is small, and quaint. The pool is small and quaint, it's a saltwater pool, not noisy at all can get busy. Very clean!... More

The hotel, it's facilities and all staff that we came into contact with were exceptional in their care of us. My only complaint is that the water was so rocky it was impossible to enjoy. We were told that beaches near the other hotels closer to Waikiki had been replenished but not up near our hotel. I would definitely consider... More
