“Awesome Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I spent 3 nights at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach, and the hotel is spectacular! The room was spacious, clean with the most comfortable bed. Plenty of amenities including free wifi, great pool and 3 great restaurants. It pays to take advantage of the early bird and breakfast specials at the Shorebird restaurant. This hotel has easy acces to the beach, a great pool and the staff was great. I will be back to this hotel on my next visit!

Room Tip: Ocean view are the best!

We stayed in the Outrigger on the Reef after reading many reviews on trip advisor. We are so happy with the decision made. We were made very welcome and found the staff so friendly and obliging. The non smoking policy was an absolute plus. The linen was beautifully laundered and pressed and changed upon request. Our room 421 on the south side with sea peeps was very very quiet and would recommend this room for privacy and quietness yet able to still see what was happening on the beach outside from your lanai. Swimming out the front of the resort was okay but stoney underfoot however a few meters right along towards the Hilton the beach is sandy and swimming is just perfect. Shopping was brilliant and right on your doorstep with taxis, shuttles and buses as required. This was the perfect holiday destination and we will return and our family are making plans now with their friends to go to the Outrigger in a few months time. We are here in September and reports say that this is the best time. We have just done the cruise on the Pride of America which too cannot be faulted.

Room Tip: We had room 421 on the south side with sea peeps and it was perfect. It is also very very quiet and...

The outrigger reef on the beach was a place that truly was family friendly. The staff went out of their way to accommodate my family in anything that we wanted to do. They organized all our tours and help us with how to get around easier on the island.

Room Tip: Choose the floors that are on the Waikiki beach side of the hotel. Less noise and more privacy.

Excellent customer service from all including housekeeping, valet, reception. We ate breakfast at all three of the restaurants. We preferred the food at the pool restaurant. Scenic view and service was excellent at the Ocean restaurant. Shorebird for breakfast was just ok. Really wanted toast but this is not an option. Convenient access to Starbucks and many restaurants in the area (especially beachwalk and Lewers street).
Many shops in the hotel. There is an "art shop" that was wonderful.

Room Tip: For cost reasons, we choose a non ocean/city view. We were satisfied with this choice.

Vacationed here with three of my friends. Hotel is ideally located. Plenty of shopping, fine and casual dining, entertainment and relaxing on the beautiful beach. Hotel staff was friendly, housekeeping staff was exceptional and the view from our third floor ocean front balcony was breathtaking. This is the only place I would consider staying when I return for another vacation.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are the best. Ocean view is breathtaking.

We really wanted to stay on the beach, and found the Outrigger Reef. It was definitely worth it for the money. Fun pool , and great restaurant Shorebird. Shorebird offered happy hour Mai Tai everyday from 12-5 for only $3...you must drink a couple a day. Also the Shorebird had a great breakfast buffet.

The rooms were nice, and came with a fridge which is always nice to have.

I would stay again!

Room Tip: We over looked the pool which was nice, and could sit out on the balcony and listen to live music.

We stayed at the Outrigger Reef in September 2012 and once again very impressed with this Hotel. Great location, rooms, friendly staff, free wi-fi and no hidden resort charges like some other hotels charge.

This is our second stay at the Outrigger reef and have stayed at other hotels in Waikiki and when I return will be the only hotel we'll stay at.

Room Tip: We had the Ocean view room 1003 (which is the top floor in the tower closest to the beach) was on a...
