Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

Honolulu, Oahu

Virgin rating

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.

Room was spacious with comfortable beds. Staff was friendly, exceptional and helpful. I can’t say enough about the concierge (Jason).

Room was spacious with comfortable beds. Staff was friendly, exceptional and helpful. I can’t say enough about the concierge (Jason). When we were notified with a voicemail message at 4 pm the day prior to our Pearl Harbor/Arizona by the company with whom we booked it several months ago that we did not have tickets due to a “computer glitch”. The tour company offered to reschedule for another day or refund $10. Problem is that we were leaving in two days. We went to the concierge desk, explained our situation and several minutes later Jason found us tickets and booked our party through another tour company - Royal Star Tours. The tour was amazing and the highlight (beside the food) of our visit to Honolulu. Read less

I've stayed here well more than a dozen times. This current remodel, which is almost done, is bringing a new vibe which I'm not used to yet. I loved being seated while checking in, and a feeling of warmth and welcoming on previous returns. Perhaps after COVID19 is on it's way out, adjustments will be made.

I've stayed here well more than a dozen times. This current remodel, which is almost done, is bringing a new vibe which I'm not used to yet. I loved being seated while checking in, and a feeling of warmth and welcoming on previous returns. Perhaps after COVID19 is on it's way out, adjustments will be made. I was in a partial ocean view room. I wish they would have left the dresser drawers for clothing. There's now a small 3 shelf unit in the closet to place your clothing. I'm traveling solo, so I can't imagine how a couple or family deal with this. The vanity has no drawers or shelving so you don't have many options for your toiletries. I ended up putting mine in a basket under the sink and on the vanity itself. I hope they'll improve the storage options in the future. Looking forward to returning and finding the lobby shops open and construction completed. The nightly music has always been a favorite of mine, as is the location, away from much of the crowded streets. Read less

Staying at the Outrigger Reef was awesome! We stayed here in 2002 and is even better now. The hotel has been renovated in 2021, and everything is very nice. We were a bit hesitant because of the beach, but are glad we stayed here. While the best Waikiki beach is just a short beach walk, it is less crowded at the hotel beach. We will stay here… Read more
