“Great stay in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Stayed here for four nites in June and from the moment of our arrival we experienced great friendly service. After a mix up with our dates (my mistake) we ended up with 2 bookings in 2 different rooms - Mikala at check in did all she could to get us into the same room for our stay which meant I didn't have to check out & check back in the next day. We stayed in a partial ocean view room & this was sufficient for us (after all you don't go on holidays to stay camped up in a room). The room was spacious enough for us (2 adults, 2 children). The pool isn't very big but it was sufficient for our stay & I liked that it wasn't too deep so it was easy for my 8 year old to swim in. The location is excellent - right in the middle of restaurants & shops & with easy access to the beach. Dukes & Hula grill restaurant situated within the hotel were both good. We were told about the Wyndham timeshares but after declaring our disinterest they didn't push us any further. Overall a great stay. Would stay there again in the future.

Three girlfriends and I celebrated our 50th birthdays in Hawaii (theme Hawaii 50) of course! What an extraordinary place! We had a ball. Now for the hotel...The location was out of this world and simply put that's what we paid for. It wasn't the plush accommodation that we are used to in Bali and Thailand (cheaper 5 star hotels) but it was certainly like no other we had experienced before. We had the ocean view room which was sensational. The beach was like nothing I've ever seen, we could surf, paddle, swim and float all in the same area, an extremely safe beach for the whole family. The hotel has friendly staff, with all amenities within walking distance. The shopping (if you like it) is sensational. We enjoyed our breakfasts (granola and muesli) and lunches (magnificent salads) from the abc shop across the road and then splurged on dinner and cocktails at night. Ideal location, magnificent sunsets, plenty to do, a great family location.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the ocean view, however, we didn't spend much time in the room, might be best to spen...

Very small pool! Beach chairs expensive for the day - should be included. All lessons super expensive, in fact twice the price of Maui. Great location and Dukes just downstairs. Stop trying to sell me onto your timeshares at the Wyndham for a $150 teaser an free breakfast - simply not interested and very Gold Coast! Beds super comfy. Free water and some milk wouldn't hurt.

Aloha 23KSA. Thank you for staying at the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. We are delighted to read your compliments about our comfortable beds and great location. We are sorry you found a negative in the charges to rent a chair and umbrella on the beach. Unfortunately, since our hotel does not operate the business that rents these items, as well as provides the surfing lessons, we are unable to control the costs. We do, however, offer abundant sun lounges on our pool deck for guests to use free of charge, just footsteps away from the beach. We hope you will come back soon for another wonderful stay. Mahalo Nui Loa.

Stayed here for five nights in June. Check in was a dream and considering I had made an error in my dates it was so not an issue for the delightful checkin lady. Given room on top floor with great partial ocean view, wouldn't bother paying. Extra for full ocean view because your not in room ok g enough. Room was spacious and clean, had sofa to store items on and lots of other strange and hanging spots. Shower was awesome. Had breakfast included so had two at hula cafe...highly recommend the banana mac pancakes and two at dukes buffet.
, fabulous omelettes. Great to be able to sit and have breakfast watching the water.
Great variety of shops downstairs but this hotel is all about the location.

Room Tip: Go for higher floors and wouldn't bother with ocean front unless you like to sit on your balcony...

Generally liked this place. Location was good -- right on beach, near food, near shops and rental car. View from our partial view room was very good! Breakfast was good at all 3 locations at hotel but thought dinner was just average. The Elevators were a pain in the _ss. Had to swipe room key to get assigned to elevator each time. Not sure why its set up that way. To a bit longer and unpleasant. Would stay here again.

Aloha dan748. Thank you for staying at the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. We are glad you liked our beachfront location, the views from our rooms and breakfast at our on-site restaurants. The reason guests are required to swipe their key cards each time they attempt to use the elevators is to ensure non-guests are restricted from entering the floors on which our rooms are located. This security measure is in place 24 hours a day to protect hotel guests from criminal activity and disturbance during their stay. Mahalo Loa Nui for your feedback. We look forward to your next stay with us.

We spent 4 nights at this excellent hotel. Wow location, location and with two 20 something's in tow would be hard to beat! The restaurants are always busy, a tourist attraction in it self is Dukes.
We had two Ocean front rooms, the views wonderful but if you don't like live music these rooms may not suit you. The music was great for us seemed to make us feel even more on holiday.
The rooms are clean & spacious, furniture a bit tired but let's face it you are really in your room to sleep! The bathrooms also tired, not sure why there is a bath as it's small, but all works perfectly.
We ate at all the restaurants, each is different, Dukes more beachy & casual, Hula Grill a little more up market & Chucks a steakhouse also upmarket with salad bar & great views. A great family time was had!
