After our NCL Hawaiian cruise, we had a room booked at the Outrigger Waikiki for two nights, to finish up our vacation in Hawaii. We were very pleased with this hotel. Our cruise came in early, and I had requested an early check in. When we got to the hotel (9:30 a.m) our king ocean front room was not ready- but the lady offered us a deluxe ocean front-for $50 a night more. (She didn't push the upgrade on us at all- but just ofered it to us for an early check-in.) We decided to go ahead and upgrade- so that we could get settled in our room. (That was nice- a 6 hour ealier check in.) The deluxe ocean front room was beautiful! It was not a huge room, but it was very nice. It had a jacuzzi in the room, and a huge shower. We had a safe. The king bed was very comfy. We had a refrigerator and coffee maker. (but no microwave- to my surprise- but no big deal) We had a nice desk with a place for our laptop and internet access and calls to anywhere in the US are included in the roooms. We had scales in the bathroom- which came in handy for us to weigh our luggage before our flight out (to make sure had not exceeded our 50 lb. limit with all the souvenirs we bought.) We had a nice ocean front balcony with comfortable rocking chairs! I enjoyed just sitting our there and watching the surfers, boats, and all the beach action. Breakfast was included with our room, so we ate at the Hoola Grill one morning and the other morning had a wonderful breakfast buffet at Duke's Canoe Club. These resaturants are right on the beach, and are very relaxing. We had dinner at Duke's one evening (I had reserved us a table several days in advance-thus we didn't have an hour wait like most people did.)
We could not keep the room as cool as we like it to be. We had the thermostat set for 65, because we sleep better in a cool room- but I don't think it got much cooler than 72- but it was fine. However- the halls and elevators had no air conditioning at all. With no air flow the halls had a very stuffy smell. Everyone in the elevators was complaining about the heat.
This hotel is right across the street from The International Market Place. That was a great place to get some souvenirs. (lots of jewelry) The hotel is right next to the Cheesecake Factory- yum! But it is right in the middle of EVERYTHING and it gets very crowded on the beach and on the street.
So if you are looking for a quiet place to relax, you might look elsewhere than Waikiki. We were only there 2 nights, but if we had been there for a week- I would look for someplace a little quieter.
The pool was great with comfortable chairs.
All in all- we were very pleased with the friendliness and cleanliness of the hotel. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be in the action with great restaurants and super service!
