“Really it's this good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

It started with the checkin, "you been upgraded from Oceanview to Oceanfront". Great start. The room was spotless, and very comfortable beds. Dinner at the Ocean House was excellent, and the buffet breakfast was a great start to the day. Absolutely nothing negative, staff was great. Definitely would stay here again.

We were there for a family wedding
Loved it all, literally step out of the hotel and onto the beach
We were on the 17th (top) floor and had great views, not ocean front but still great. The room was spacious and the bed was enormous. Very clean, serviced every day unless you left the sign out.
Breakfast daily at the Shorebird on the ground floor was fantastic, walking distance to everything in town, friendly staff that went out of their way for you
Nightly karaoke in Shorebird was fun (I didn't sing!!!) and live entertainment each evening at the other restaurant on ground floor.
Absolutely fantastic in every way

Room Tip: Get a room up high on the pool side

Upon arrival I enquired about an ocean front upgrade. Even though the hotel was pretty full the lady at the desk found one for a small extra fee. Unfortunately the room had no view of Diamond Head. Back to the front desk to ask if one was available on the diamond head side. I was told one would be available the next day if I wanted to move over then. Packed our bags the next day, went out for a walk and lunch, came back our bags had been moved to the new room. The view and the room more than met our expectations, absolutely beautiful! We had a couple of minor problems with the bathroom which were fixed immediately. I can't speak highly enough about the service we received. There are also a couple of nice restaurants with a selection of live entertainment to choose from as well as happy hour. From my perspective I would highly recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation in returning.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise and generally better views

This was our 3rd trip to Oahu and our 3rd stay at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. The hotel was absolutely beautiful with the open air environment. Our room was ocean and city view, above the swimming pool. And we were not disappointed at all. The room looked exactly like the professional photos show. The beds were extremely comfortable. We ate at the Shorebird and Kani Ka Pila Grille and they were both outstanding. The one and only thing that I would say was a dissapointment was the rocky ocean, and I do not blame the hotel for that. It was hard to walk in barefoot. Because of staying there before, we were aware of that before we booked the hotel. I would definately recommend this hotel to everyone I talk to and would definately stay there again. VERY VERY happy with our stay and VERY VERY sad to leave.

Spent 5 days here. Our ocean view room was just that, an ocean view. We overlooked the pool and had a city view, as well. Who could ask for anything more? The hotel has been completely updated. It was clean and inviting. The cultural activities were great. The restaurants offered something for everyone. We enjoyed listening to the evening entertainment from our balconey. The Reef offers a wedding vow renewal service that should not be missed. We participated and came away renewed and reaffirmed in our love for one another. The Reef is a bit of paradise in an otherwise crowded busy city.

We were so amazed at our Oceanfront One Bedroom Suite. Not only did we have a beautiful ocean frontage but it was very comfortable and homey feeling. The lady who cleaned our suite ' Wo Shun - was not only friendly but made us feel like our suite was her only room she cleaned. That personal touch from everyone here was awesome and you truly felt the caring and warmth from every department. The OceanHouse restaurant is delicious with the food preparation being excellent. If you like good fish and chips the Shore Bird has the best in Waikiki and a great bar and view of Waikiki!! Checkin was expeditious as well as checkout which can be done from your Plasma television. When the bellman retrieves your luggage he asks if a ride to the airport has already been arranged. If not, he will arrange one for you. One receives a smile and a warm Aloha. This is our second time at Outrigger Reef and we will be returning next year. Oh yeah, we live on Maui but do our "staycations" on O'ahu at the Outrigger Reef.. Aloha nui from Maui Nei

Room Tip: If you have a family try for one of the 1 bedroom suites which also can include an adjoining room. O...

Loved the place - beautiful open foyer area from the main road through to the ocean 'out the back' - great location - right on Waikiki Beach and close to all public transport and shops - great staff - great amenities - only real issue (and it's only quite small) we had was with the restaurants - cook your own at the Shore Bird - might be great for some but tedious for others - however having the place opening onto the beach and having never ending ocean views redeemed it. For cocktails and great Hawaiian music from very talented local bands the Kane Ka Pile Grille was hard to fault.
