“Great hotel, good value , close to everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Great hotel on the beach, with large wide beach next door at park, great WIFI., good food.Great breakfast buffet, the early bargain dinner at Seabird restaurant (which is not owned by the hotel) is a grat deal but you have to cook your own meat. Location is fantastic for other eateries nearby, shopping etc. WIFI free and strong everywhere. No resort fee is a bonus.

Room Tip: Seaview is a bit questionable from a lot of rooms. Pay for oceanfront if you really want to sea it...

Booked an overnight stay here, not realising there are 2 Outrigger Hotels on Waikiki beach. Assumed from the description it had a sea view, this was only if you hang out over the balcony and looked sideways. It was also a huge hotel, almost a shopping mall. Tried to have a cocktail at sunset - about 16.30 - at the beach bar, only to be told we could take any table at the back, nowhere near the beach or sunset as the other tables were all booked. Went to another hotel.
It was far too busy with people nothing to do with the hotel wandering around the foyer.
Rooms were a good size and comfortable.

Room Tip: Check carefully the situation of the hotel. It is hard to choose your room but ask at Reception, qu...

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Literally on the beach. Shore Bird is delicious, definitely go there for lunch. The rooms were spotless and very roomy I found, and we travelled with our 2 toddler boys (2&4) and we only had a room with 2 double beds. Plenty of room. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Also very handy having Starbucks within the hotel. Extremely handy early in the morning! Also loved the convenience store downstairs too. Large coin laundry in the basement, great added bonus when travelling with little kids. The only negative I could find, which only really applies to families with little kids, the pool doesn't have a shallow end for little toddlers, so we lived on the beach or up at the lagoon near the Hilton Hawaiian Village. And the pool was also freezing. Just keep that in mind. Other than that, well done Outrigger Reef!

We had a great time during our stay at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach during the 2013 Chinese New Year vacation.

The location is just perfect: the Hotel is directly on the beach (you literally walk from the Hotel onto the beach, cannot be closer) of Waikiki with great weather and calm seas. And after a day on the beach it is only a 10 min walk to the main boulevard with exclusive shops and many restaurants. The Hardrock cafe is within 5 min walking distance (which is quite convenient after a few cocktails ;-)). We also liked it that the Hotel was at the end of the line of Hotels on the beach, that made it a bit more quiet around its beach.

They Hotel has 3 restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner which left us with plenty choice. The Hotel also has many amenities such as a pool, gym and shops. I tried the gym and found it very complete, clean with all equipment in good working condition.

The staff was very friendly throughout our stay. For instance when we arrived and our room was not ready yet (we arrived at 9am and official checking time is not until 3pm), and the Hotel staff provided us with a temporary room for 30 min so we could change and get a shower to freshen up. You can also book excursions or rent a car through the activities desk in the Hotel. The room was clean, spacious and offered partial ocean view as promised. The room style is a bit outdated perhaps.

If we ever make it back to Hawaii then the Outrigger Reef on the beach Hotel will be our first choice!

Not an awful hotel , although first thing they did was try to get us on some time share deal - I was not impressed!! Location is great but after spending time at Lava Lava Beach Club on Big Island, I am glad we are only here for a couple of days, enough for a dinner cruise and Pearl Harbour tour. Staff are great (apart from Time Share Girl) - just depends what you are looking for. Me? I prefer laid back peace & quiet! But unless you go, you'll never know!!!! And we have to go home via Honolulu so why not make the most of it.

Room Tip: Ocean View - well yes but over dirty roof tops and there's not much room on balcony. Pool is qui...

My brother and I enjoyed our first visit to Hawaii January 20-31, 2013. We stayed at the Outrigger Reef On The Beach. Our partial ocean view room on the 14th floor was very nice. Sue, our housekeeper did a great job of taking care of our room and was quite personable. We enjoyed the on site restaurants and had a lot of fun grilling our own steak on our last night at the Shore Bird. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Outrigger Reef on the Beach and would definitely stay there again. The whole trip was great!

Stayed for 7 nights at the outrigger. The atmosphere of the hotel was very relaxed. All the staff were helpful and polite. It is literally steps from the beach with amazing views. Really lovely stay and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: We had a partial ocean view room and ocean view room, not that much difference in terms of the view...
