“Perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Outrigger Waikiki is the perfect place to stay in Waikiki. We had an amazing ocean view room on the 14th floor, and the resort is right on the beach. The staff are super friendly and you don't have to leave the resort with dining and shopping options on site. Dukes is on the ground floor, looking out over the ocean - the perfect location for sunset - make sure you have a 'Lava Flow' cocktail too. Outrigger Waikiki is our home away from home!

This was our first visit to Outrigger "Waikiki on the Beach" this hotel is set perfectly on the beach with Dukes famous Restaurant and Bar on the bottom level. Our room was very nice and quite big, newly remodeled which is always nice. The only complaint about the room is that we found the beds to be a little hard and the pillows were not very soft either. The staff at every turn was very friendly and helpful we give them an excellent rating. from the reception desk, housekeeping staff, concierge to the housekeeping staff.
We ate lunch in Dukes Bar quite a bit, excellent food and great friendly service.
Now the NEGATIVES of this stay: Noise carries up and so we found it quite hard to sleep peacefully at night. Dukes bar was open till 1am it seems on most nights or maybe just the weekends with music playing & people laughing and talking quite loud (understandable), after the second night we had to close our doors which meant the ocean sound was blocked out which is why we spent the $$$$ on a hotel like this and insisted on Ocean Front. The Royal Hawaiian next door let their staff run a four wheeler to rake the beach and set up chairs, bad thing is the operator ran the noisy thing every morning at about 4:30 - 5am then again around 6am this was very disturbing to our relaxation.
The pool staff removed the chairs from a large portion of the deck and shut the hot tub down every day around 5pm to make room for diners and private parties that closed sections of the pool on many nights. We like to relax in the hot tub after the sun goes down. NO CHANCE here.
Our next visit sadly will not be at this hotel.

Aloha Celice C. Thank you for choosing the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Your positive comments about our location, restaurant, rooms and staff are truly appreciated. We are sorry to hear that there were negative aspects of your stay. As our hotel is located in the heart of energetic Waikiki, and also on the most desirable stretch of beachfront, the sounds of people having a good time can be heard throughout the day and night. Our jacuzzi is open until 8pm on Monday-Thursday. On Friday-Sunday, the jacuzzi closes at 4pm when Duke's Waikiki utilizes the lower pool deck to feature live Hawaiian music by well-known local celebrity entertainers. Mahalo for taking the time to share your feedback with us.

Have stayed at this hotel more than once... great location, great staff, great facilities!

From the moment you walk in you feel at home, all of the staff are happy to help and make you feel at home! The rooms are a great size and have everything you need. When you go down to the pool you can always get a sunbed... for some reason they have reduced the size of the swimming pool but it doesn't restrict too much as most of the time you will use the sea! So close to the sea that you can walk straight out without having to walk miles!

Dukes Bar is great... great service and the breakfast is good too... a little expensive but sometimes you can vouchers from your travel agent... The breakfast buffet is great but at $15 per person it can be expensive if you are with family.

Walk out of the hotel and you are in the middle of the strip with everything you need on your doorstep!

Room Tip: Double rooms for family will get you two beds... if you are traveling as a couple ask before hand to...

Aloha Ross L. Thank you for returning to the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Hearing that you felt right at home as soon as you walked into our hotel makes us extremely happy. Throughout the year, we look forward to welcoming our return guests back as part of our `Ohana (family) from around the world. As you have noticed, we recently completed renovations to the pool deck and the upgrades include a newly remodeled saltwater swimming pool. The length of the pool was shortened to allow more sunbeds to be placed. In addition, the depth of the entire pool has been reduced so that guests can enjoy more useable space for standing and wading. Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again very soon.

We just LOVED staying here. Our room was beautiful, clean & spacious. We had a problem with the thermostat. We called the desk & within 5 min maintenance was there to take care of the problem. It is located perfectly on Waikiki Beach. Can't wait to go again.

My husband and I visited to celebrate our 20th anniversary. All of the staff are wonderful and friendly! We were there during the latest tsunami warning. The staff was very proactive in making sure all guests were safe and comfortable. Top notch hotel with beautiful views; wonderful shops (Stop by and see Crystal in Pele Signatures for Hawaiian handcrafted pens; Hawaiian Accessories for amazing fine Koa wood jewelry & gifts) ; fun activities, and excellent restaurants (Duke's breakfast buffet is a must! Hula Grill has great food and prices - try the Hula Pie!). Don't forget to try the sandwich shop downstairs - great sandwiches and prices (my husband LOVED the chocolate chip cookies).

Stayed here for a week in late October with my husband. Hotel is in a great location right in the centre of waikiki and right on the beach. The rooms are clean, my only complaint was the noise of the aircon from the Royal Hawaiian Centre however it did not dampen our holiday at all. Next time I would probably pay the extra for the ocean view room instead. Great selection of restaurants in the hotel and seems like a place to be. If you want to be right in the action this is the hotel for you

Aloha elliecanne. Thank you for staying at the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. We are happy to hear that you and your husband had a wonderful Hawaiian holiday. Our centralized location does provide a lot of action in paradise, as many vacationers visit our property for the best beach, the best restaurants and the best variety of shopping options nearby. We hope you will return for another visit soon. If you prefer to stay in a room on the east side of the building, away from the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, please do not hesitate to let us know after you have made your reservations. Mahalo.

I've been staying here several times a year for work/leisure since 2002. It has just went through a major room upgrade that has improved inter-room noise. The restaurants are great, and I love the breakfast buffet at Dukes...make sure to tip the omelette guy, he deserves it. The Hula Grill has, in my opinion, the best happy hour prices for food and bar menu that can be found on Waikiki. Finally, it says something that I find staff still working here that I met on my first trip, and I respect a business that retains employees. Great new pool too!
