Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Enjoy an aloha-style welcome at the award-winning Outrigger Reef. You can take in the stunning ocean views, relax among the Polynesian canoe art and soak up the sun by the pool. In need of some peace and pampering? Look no further than the elegant Spa — we recommend the traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage. But if you like to be more active, why not set sail in a catamaran (keep your eyes peeled for spinner and bottlenose dolphins) or enjoy a paddle in the surf in an authentic outrigger canoe. If you prefer dry land, amble along the Waikiki Beach Walk promenade, stopping at a café on route, or take a hike to Point Leahi at the summit of Diamond Head. Back at the hotel, you can grill-your-own hand-carved steaks and fresh fish by the beach or dine poolside at Kani Ka Pila Grille, as you watch the live evening entertainment.

The blue construction walls are like a maze and the construction noise from our balcony took away from the relaxing beach stay we were hoping for. The staff was excellent, however every time we stopped by the activities desk there was a long line and only one person working. Read less

I spent nine days at the Outrigger Reef with my family and it was absolutely incredible. We decided to spend a little more on the ocean front room and club access, which ended up being completely worth it. We loved our room, it was spacious and comfortable. Lily from housekeeping was the BEST. She was so kind and kept our room looking amazing. Everyone at the resort was friendly and very accommodating. I was blown away by the service! I spoke with a resort representative about the construction before booking. We still decided to book because we’re usually out and about adventuring most days. I only cared about the pool being open, which it was. The construction didn’t impact us because everything was within walking distance of the resort. There’s tons of coffee shops, restaurants, surf shops, retail shopping, and the beach. The location is perfection! For us, we only noticed the construction on the way in and out of the resort. However, I can’t wait to return to see it once it’s all finished. Thank you Outrigger Reef for making our trip so special! Read less

Room was large enough. Ocean view was amazing. Now...the butttsss.... I spent a long time trying to find a hotel to pick in Waikiki. spent hours looking. spent days and hours researching. Outrigger seemed like a great choice. Laundry service. Fitness center. rooms were at a great price. Breakfast not included. NO ONE mentioned the construction. No laundry service. No self laundry. No fitness center. I probably would have picked a different hotel knowing what I know now. Valet $40 per day. No options to park. Resort fee of $40 per day per room. Pool small. Does have beach access. Read less

The starbucks is not open and only the restaurant near the pool are open. Tjere is no lobby and you cant see the beach from the pool. The construction noise is ridiculously loud and the walk way to the beach is like a creepy alley. On a positive note, our room was large and recently remodeled. Tons of shops and restaurants within walking distance and you can also get delivery from some of them. Even with the negatives it is paradise here! Read less

This was going to be my second time coming to Oahu so I wanted to pick a hotel different from the experience I had at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. I conducted research on most hotels in Waikiki and found the Outrigger Reef to have the best reviews and perfect price range. I was able to book one of the preview rate promotions back in April which made this stay wayyyy cheaper then anything else I would find in Waikiki. I booked through the official Outrigger Website which did state that this hotel was going through major renovations. Breakdown of everything below: Check-in (10 out of 10): Upon arrival the bellboys came right up and took all of our luggage. Checking in took literally less than ten minutes because there was no line. Room (10 out of 10): Our original room was a City View room which was the lowest priced one. Upon arrival we found out we got upgraded to the Club Oceanfront room which includes access to the Voyager 47 lounge! Our room was on the highest floor (10th) and had the most breath taking views of Diamond Head, the ocean, and the sunrise/sunset. The room had one king bed and one sofa bed that layed out into a bed. This room was modern, newly renovated, and comfortable enough to fit four people and all of our luggages/clothes. Voyager 47 Lounge (10 out of 10): The main reason we chose to upgrade to the Club Oceanfront room on the estandby upgrade program was the included breakfast and dinner appetizers at this lounge. I 100% recommend getting a room with access to this lounge especially if you are coming with a family because it will save tons of money. The breakfast is always two main options that rotate throughout the week. The main options included waffles, potatoes, scrambled eggs, omelettes, bacon, breakfast sausage. They also had pastries like croissants, and oatmeal, cereals, milk fruit plates that were there everyday. For drinks there was hot/iced coffee, hot/iced tea, a variety of fruit juices a variety of the hawaiian sun company guava juices, and all the normal sodas. For dinner appetizers they also had two choices that rotated, including beef skewers, coconut shrimp, veggie potstickers, mini corndogs. For dinner they also had the same fruit juices, cans of guava juice and cans of soda. In addition they had alcoholic drinks which included beer, wine, other things and a special cocktail of the day. So everything from this lounge is unlimited meaning you can get unlimited amounts. My family and I grabbed all these canned drinks at breakfast and used them throughout the day to save money while eating lunch/dinner. In addition the Voyager 47 lounge staff were AMAZINGGGG they always remembered our names and were always extremely kind and were a key highlight of what made our trip so memorable. Pool/Beach (7 out of 10): The area around the pool is all boarded up so its not really all that pretty and relaxing. Me and my family didn't use the pool a single time because the beach is always better in Hawaii. You can't hear the construction from the beach or the rooms. The beach in front of Outrigger is washed away so everyone just uses the beach right next to it thats literally 3 steps further to the right. Beach is rocky so bring water shoes or buy them at the ABC store when you get there. Construction: Only place with construction is the lobby. You can't hear construction from the rooms or beach. Theres no construction on the Weekend. Personally the construction was a really small price to pay for the discounted rate on this hotel. Especially if you are out doing excursions during the week you won't even be at the hotel so the construction really won't bother you unless you are super picky. Hotel "Amenities" ( 7 out of 10): The one thing that annoyed me was the unreliable internet. If you wanted premium/faster internet you had to pay more money so the standard wifi was only ok. Went to the hotels only open restaurant once and it was overpriced and the food just wasn't that good. The hotel is surrounded by tons of other food options so def go on yelp and look around. Whenever we needed something or had a problem we called guest services which had extremely fast service! Thank you Outrigger Reef for such an amazing vacation! Read less
