“Wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

During my first trip to Hawaii and awaiting a cruise we stayed at the Outrigger Reef for 3 nights. Very clean and comfortable rooms. We booked partial ocean view with breakfast. The balcony overlooked the pool and did have a partial ocean view. I did not notice any noise from the pool area although we were on a higher floor. We had breakfast at the pool one morning and the buffet another. Both were very good. Unfortunatly we miised breakfast #3 due to an early excursion to Pearl Harbor. Luckily there is a Starbucks on the corner. We had dinner at the pool/bar restaurant 2 evenings and it was enjoyable. Everyone we came in contact with were very pleasant and helpful. We booked 2 tours from the excursion desk inside the lobbty and would recommend both the Circle Island Tour and Pearl Harbor Tour. The area surrounding the hotel is beautiful with many shopping areas. You are able to walk right on to the beach, but the beach is quite narrow. Chairs and unbrellas along with other water toys are available for rent. I really enjoyed the location and the entire Outrigger Reef experience and would stay again.

Great location. I like the different choices of restaurants on the premises. The food is excellent, but a little pricey on premises, but I like the convenience. There are plenty of lower priced food places within 1 block, so not a big problem. The poolside grill has excellent Hawaiian live music during dinner hours to put you in the Island mood. Can't get enough of that. Overall a pleasant getaway. Also a few good stores to shop on premises and within walking distance. I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a location on "Waikiki Beach". Willie M.

Room Tip: Higher Floors will avoid any and all street noise, but overall pretty quiet neighborhood.

We flew to Hawaii to take a cruise, so we booked a lower priced room for five nights. What a pleasant surprise. The room had a small balcony with a partial ocean view. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The staff at the pool and housekeeping were happy and friendly. The three restaurants in the hotel were excellent. A luscious meal watching the sunset on Waikiki Beach, heaven. We highly recommend the Outrigger on the beach, and will return.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary here in 2011 and it was wonderful. Don't think we reviewed our trip but want everyone to know this is a great place to go! It is clean and comfortable and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable! Our room was upgraded to a partial ocean view which was very much appreciated. The hotel is right on the beach and in walking distance of shopping, dining, and shows! We are definitely coming back for our 45th! Can't wait!

The hotel was welcoming and had very attentive staff to make our stay even more special. The hotel room was spacious, clean and very well maintained. The location was excellent! Waterfront and right in the center of it all with great shopping and thing to do! The Outrigger also has everything you may want to rent for the real Hawaiian experience such as stand up boards, surf boards etc. We loved staying at the Outrigger and would definitely stay there when we visit Honolulu next!

A beautiful hotel right on Waikiki. The room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The staff were all very helpful. If you do have your car they have a parking garage and have a daily fee for parking (all valet) which is very helpful. They do let you know there is a daily fee which considering the area is well worth it. The restaurants on site were wonderful as well. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I can't imagine there are any "poor" rooms. A room with an ocean view would be great...

Sadly we only stayed the one night, but what a night!!! we got upgraded to a suite on the top floor with fantastic views all around...thanks for that much appreciated... :-))
The hotels in a brilliant spot for bars and dinning...
Would defiantly book this hotel again.....
The tourist tax is a total rip off so beware, no benefits unless you come from the States or Canada....

Room Tip: High floor with sea view...
