The suite we had was excellent, but please remember each suite is individually owned. Furnishing can be very different from suite to suite. We booked into the highest rated unit overlooking the water. We were assigned one unit. It did not have internet access and the furnishings were low end. We quickly requested another unit. The staff was receptive and... More

We booked a one bedroom condo at Waikiki Shore through Outrigger. This is so not a one bedroom. What you get is a flimsy plastic accordion divider that separated the bed area from the living room. We stayed with our two young children, who were sleeping in the living room, and the divider did nothing to block light from their... More

This place has three different management companies and Outrigger is clearly the lowest quality. Another reviewer notes this problem that there is a phone in the lobby to connect the Outrigger clients to a desk manager at the hotel one block away. The place is sparsely furnished with cheap beach furniture. We had to call for housekeeping two of our... More

Booked our vacation with Waikiki Shore after seeing their hotel on Expedia. This was our first visit to Ohau and the studio apartment and view were outstanding. What they advertise is what you get at reasonable prices. Very clean rooms, kitchen facilities, & housekeeping. The location was ideal, could walk to shops, beaches, restaurants, bus stops, didn't rent a car.... More

This is the best location in Waikiki, overlooking Waikiki Beach and Fort De Russy. Our room was on the top floor, well equipped and very comfortable with a large deck and awning to shelter from the sun. As it is situated right on the beach front there are no roads to cross to go for a swim. The staff that... More

I have stayed twice at this condo. Can be rented thrugh Outrigger or direct from owners. Outrigger has advantage of use of pool, weight room and valet parking at the hotel next door. Voiews on the lanai are fabulous becuase there is a park next door (instead of another hi rise). Sunsets are phenomenal. Can see downtown and jets landing... More

We stayed at other Outrigger properties and had a very pleasant experience. Right from the time we checked into Waikiki Shores, it was nothing but trouble. Had to wait for ~30min before someone from Outrigger came down to check us in. Our car didn't fit into the parking space and hence we were asked to park in Regency and walk... More

After reading all the reviews I thought I was prepared for an outdated expensive apartment, however nothing could prepare me for the Waikiki Shores. Very outdated with verticle blinds that do not turn day into night. If you are looking for a sleep in, then do not stay here. There is little insulation and you can hear everything from the... More
