Excellent experience at this hotel. Located on jam-packed Waikiki beach! Very friendly staff, concierge desk and maid. Free introduction to hotel by concierge desk was great and felt no pressure to just buy something! He was very candid about a snorkel trip and we appreciated his honesty. . Partial view of ocean means go out on balcony to see ocean! […] We had asked for a king with partial view..got two double beds.... Great restaurants located at the hotel!!! Pool is located between two tall buildings but nicely landscaped and friendly staff! Room amenities are great...location great for long walks on beach, superb shopping area and activities to choose from. Would stay here again! Had been 20 years since we were in Honolulu and it certainly looks like Las Vegas except on the beach! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"e.Yearly Anniv Getaway"
We go there ea year - this time it seemed a bit 'scaled back'. Last year, attentive to note our anniv and even gave us small bottle of wine. This year, no acknowledgement and room was unclean at check in, closet was broken, and it smelled musty. Talked to them about changing rooms but there were not very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location,very close to the beach"
We quite enjoyed our 4-nights stay at this hotel. Its location is very convenient,close to duty free,7-11 and restarant,the best thing is it locates just on Waikiki Beach. Parking is a bit expensive, $35per day. The rate per day is also quite expensive, maybe hotels at Hawaii are all the same.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful vacation on the beach!"
We chose this hotel because it was located on the beach. We had a great time. The hotel was very well kept and nicely maintained. Our room was very nice. The beds were comfortable. The shower was nice and clean and had good water pressure. All the staff at this hotel were very nice. They offer a hospitality room for you to use to freshen up after you […] have already checked out of the hotel. That was a great feature since we had a late flight home. This hotel is nicely located in walking distance of resturants and shops. I would stay here again if I ever get the chance to come back!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to all Waikiki sights and exemplary service"
Our stay was great. A 3 day stop over on the way to Manila. Somehwere in TSA at O'Hare, 2 or our 3 passports disappeared, I called the cociierge from our LA plane change, and when we got to the hotel they had all the arrangements made for us to feet new passports expedited in Honolulu. Had I needed to coordinate this myself, it really wipeouts have […] consumed all of our time in Honolulu. Instead we were able to shop, complete an organized tour of USS Arizona Memorial, take surfing lessons and see cousins that live on the island. These people know how to take care of their guests. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"First Waikiki experience."
The hotel was great but Waikiki was way too touristy and busy for me. The main reason for staying there was a visit to Pearl Harbour. I will never forget how I felt looking down on the Arizona knowing how many sailors were still down there on the ship.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Thank you for staying at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Waikiki being such a popular location is at time very busy. Waikiki Beach Walk, located at the beginning of Waikiki, developed by Outrigger Enterprises Group is one of the best and quieter areas in Waikiki
We were pleasantly surprised with The Outrigger Reef on the Beach. The hotel had so many attributes that we were not expecting. Loved the walk around along the beach, it made for some very nice long walks to take in all that Waikiki Beach had to offer. The restaurants were very good. Would definitely go back!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Aloha Jodi & Bill, Thank you for taking the time to review the Outrigger Reef on the Beach.

Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Aloha Kathy, Thank you for choosing Outrigger Reef on the Beach and we are looking forward to welcoming you back! Mahalo!
"Pretty good choice for Waikiki."
Location close enough to action but not in the midst of the masses. Beach is narrow and crowded but next door to Fort DePussey park beach. Rooms satisfactory with"partial ocean view" that really gave us view of pool. LOVED being over the bar with the nightly music until 9pm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Aloha Harriett! Thank you for taking the time to post this review. I will forward your compliments to the staff at Kani Ka Pila Grille. Mahalo!
"Great Hotel- Oceanfront Experience"
Ocean House restaurant within the hotel was a pleasant surprise! Went back 3 nights in a row. Room and service level were good. One negative- we had an oceanfront room and we slept with the windows open every night. Every night of our stay we were awoken by different random drunk people between 1-4am. People yelling at the top of their lungs on the […] beach. The hotel should have a person keeping an eye on the beach directly in front of the hotel. The drunks typically hung out loudly for 15-20 minutes before moving on. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel great location"
Knowing ahead of time that this was the most expensive place on earth I thought the hotel was great. The service was fantastic. The hotel has been updated and you can't beat the location. I'll be back to the Outrigger Reef on my next trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great all around experience. Loved everything about itGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly and extremely accommodating staff"
Every single employee that we encountered was extremely friendly and willing to accommodate any and all requests. The wedding vow renewal ceremony was so meaningful! We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Still a 5 star"
This is my second time at the Outrigger Reef. I have nothing negative to say about my stay. From the concierge to the valet personnel, I was treated first class....I am going to make this an annual tradition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I am so glad we chose the Outrigger Reef!"
Excellent choice! great staff, clean rod, good food, right on the beach, and close to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and close to the beach."
Family vacation was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and friendly staff! We had a free breakfast included with our rooms which was convenient. They had three restaurants to choose from do we didn't get bored eating at the same place everyday. Pool was immaculate. I signed my parents up for a free vow renewal on the beach which was beautifully done and quite touching. My only complaint is […] regarding the activities desk. They overcharge by quite a bit, much better to book any activity reservations directly than through hotel. I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great large hotel on the beach"
After a glitch with my room, I was transferred to a better room - the management was exceptional in dealing with a problem with the carpeting. I think this is a great hotel if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, large hotel right in Waikiki. I recommend that you find out if you will be facing the adjacent tower because you will be looking out […] across about 15 feet at another building. Other than this hazard, I've stayed here several times and always found the rooms to be comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not to bad..."
Had a good time, everything is really expensive though...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would go back"
Hotel was great. Employees were friendly and helpful. In-house restaurants were very good (and a little expensive). The location is on the beach and near shopping and restaurants. Would definitely go back to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent and affordable choice"
First stay at the Outrigger Reef - excellent choice in an ideal Waikiki location. Not as price as nearby hotels, and every bit as nice. Staff is friendly, well trained and attentive. Didn't dine at Ocean House, but it is an outstanding choice for elegant dining on the beach. Booked an ocean view, complementary upgrade to ocean front room. Great room, […] outstanding view. Easy access to the beach. Quality + Price = Winner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location Location Location"
Great Location just in front of the beach and close enough to the shopping area!Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful Hotel right on Waikiki Beach in the morning had breakfast and the beach and a view of Diamond Head. Just another day in Paradise.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Outrugher was a comfortable beautiful hotel. Beach is a little rocky but being right in the water was great. Had a gorgeous view of both the Pacific and Diamondhead.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel with great location and sub-par staff."
Everything was just ok nothing really great stood out. The hotel staff was barely average. The customer service and activity desk people annoy you every time you walk by for a "free meal and $150 gift card" if you attend a short two hour seminar telling about their other great hotels. It got to the point were I told them I would pay them $150 just to […] leave me alone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
After doing a lot of research I settled on this hotel for our short stay In Waikiki. The location is right on the beach with 2 restaurants that overlook the ocean, so you can sip Mai Tai's and relax. The wifi is included in your room, which is a huge perk since it is pretty costly at the neighboring hotels. They also offer free classes such as Lei making, […] hula lessons and walking tours to give you a feel for the culture. The staff is super friendly and helpful with everything. And don't forget to have Loco Moco for breakfast to make your Hawaiian experience complete. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel and location of your dreams"
Arrived on a weds luchtime, allowed us to check in early. Went down to the shorebird for happy hour and the view takes your breathe away--ocean, then beach, then bar, couldn't ask for more..hotel exceeded all expectations and I will be coming back again. Close to all shopping and restaurants and bars, happy hour at the yard house was awesome...took […] a food tour on the Saturday which was amazing, tasting all the local flavors and finally got to eat ahi tuna for the first time, awesome. A vacation to remember..Richard and Ardie. Las Vegas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice resort for vow renewals"
We booked this resort for the free vow renewal ceremony on the beach. It did not disappoint. The celebrant Kawena was superb. The photographer Boyana of Nature's touch photography took some wonderful photo. The resort itself was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, very good hotel"
The Outrigger Reef on the Beach is in the perfect location for a Waikiki family vacation. The spacious, open main level offered a number of shops and several fun restaurants with lovely ocean views and good, if not great, food. Our room was clean and decently sized. We would have preferred a slightly firmer mattress than is there now and the decor is […] a bit drab, but the bathroom looked recently updated. Our partial ocean view room was as advertised, overlooking the pool with a nice view of ocean from the veranda. We had a slight issue in the middle of our stay with a foul smell in the sink area. Within minutes of reporting the problem an engineer arrived and the problem was resolved in less than an hour. That level of service, plus the unbeatable location right on the beach and within steps of Waikiki restaurants, shops, etc. made this hotel a very good choice for our vacation.

Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Thank you for staying at the Outrigger Reef and all the wonderful comments about the service and the location of the hotel. Outrigger Reef $100 million renovation was completed in 2008. The décor of the hotel represents a collection design, artifacts used by Hawaiians. The bedspread and carpet are replica of Ohe Kapala (Bamboo stamping), which is currently part of the cultural activities available on Sundays and Wednesdays. Other items are designed to represent the sail of an Outrigger Canoe. Koa wood is used thru out the entire property for its rich color and as it was commonly used by our Kupunas(Ancestors) in construction, furniture, building canoes. Aloha!
"A great stay as advertised and purchased"
The staff was very friendly. Hotel has a lot of amenities. 3 restaurants but 2 are separate contracts from the hotel. They just rent the space. One expensive one very reasonably priced given it is a restaurant in a resort town. The staff can arrange any trip you want One warning the will offer you free events in exchange for getting to listen to a time […] share presentation but so did the booths on the beach that will arrange stuff as well. The hotel was generally cheaper than the street booths. I'd stay there again. Took the whole family. All loved it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Like any other resort we have our share of challenges, and our guests’ feedback provides us with valuable insights regarding the quality of our service and facilities.

I will pass your kind words on to all. We think of our guests as long time friends who should not stay away too long; we are looking forward to hosting you once again on your next visit to Hawaii. Mahalo!
"Hotel on the beach"
We really enjoyed the hotel, as the staff were friendly and prompt to any questions and information about the area and tours. The pool was a real treat for the kids, and it was located right on the beach. However, the beach was , no kidding , on the reef so there were hard rocks right on the shore that hurt our feet, that isn't the hotel's fault. we […] ended up going next door to another part of the beach and walked 5-10min on the beach east where it was much nicer. The location was very convenient to all the local eateries, ABC stores, etc Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Aloha Everett, Thank you for taking the time to share you recent visit with us. We are delighted that you found the staff to be friendly & the location of the hotel to be convenient & it met your needs. I am sorry to hear that the swimming area out front did not meet your expectations. Our hotel is situated on a fresh water stream that leads from the mountains to the sea. The first Waikiki settlers were ingenious engineers & they harvested the wetland into ponds filled with a variety of marine life. One of the largest ponds is known as Kalia, our hotel is situated on Kalia Road. In ancient Hawaii, people with a spiritual or physical ailment would come to the pond in search of healing. When the priest (Kahuna) would place a lei around their neck & instruct them to submerge the lei would come off & it was said that the afflicted ones were healed. This particular ceremony was called Kawehewehe which literally means “the removal”. Long gone are our ancient ponds but we welcome all our visitors the healing shores of Kawehewehe. I do hope you to take into consideration our history & visit our hotel again.
Price is high. If it can be a little cheaper that would be great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Check the Pool for Hotel Guest ONLY"
This is a very nice hotel. Rooms are comfortable and it sits right on Waikiki beach. But keep in mind it is a public beach and there are many other none hotel guest who come to visit as well. Also there is no one checking if people swimming in the hotel pool are guest. There was also outside guest wandering in the halls of the hotel. There was a lady […] who was there almost all day asking hotel guest for a cigarette until security finally escorted her out. Overall though, the hotel is very nice, convenient to shopping centers and the hotel staff are very helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Outrigger Reef on the Beach Aloha! Thank you for mentioning about your observation regarding non-guests at our pool and on our property. Our pool attendants do try to verify guests at our pool area however due to the open air atmosphere that we try to create and many of our guests prefer, it is sometimes difficult to monitor. We will remind the pool attendants to be more attentive. The safety and security of our guests are very important to us and it’s good to know that our Security eventually took care of the undesirable person. We’re happy that overall, you found the Outrigger Reef on the Beach nice, convenient and with helpful staff. We hope we will be able to host you again. Mahalo!
We had a WONDERFUL time at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach!! The hotel was beautiful, and our room was spacious, comfortable, and spotless. The Hawaiian décor was lovely, and the waterfall and live Hawaiian music in the lobby/restaurant/pool area add a wonderful touch. We enjoyed the nice ocean breezes and watched surfers and swimmers while enjoying […] coffee on our balcony each morning, and walked right out to the beach when we were ready. The pool and hot tubs were relaxing and beautifully maintained, and the activities staff helped us plan unforgettable trips and tours. The hotel staff were the friendliest and nicest we have ever encountered!! We can't wait to come back and stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice Hotel, right on the beach."
I love this hotel. It's right on the beach, walking distance to shops and restaurant. My family ate all all three restaurants on site, all are very good. Various shops offered on site, on-site rental car, professional photographer and a great concierge desk (Lydia and Gregg) were both very helpful! My only draw back is how rocky the beach is entering […] the water. I recommend water shoes. Over all this this BEST place!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel - Great Location"
We stayed at The Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Authentic Hawaiian feel. The hotel was beautiful and the location was the best. Right on the beach and in walking distance to everything. We stayed for 2 nights before a cruise of the Hawaiian islands. I was surprised at how narrow the beach and how crowded it was. The beach itself was not what I expected […] at all but the hotel was beautiful and the staff could not have been nicer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We enjoyed the beach at Fort Derussy Park next to the hotel that is less crowded than Waikiki. We liked buffet breakfasts at the Shore Bird restaurant with fresh local fruits. Lovely artists performed by the pool in the evenings.Genuine Expedia guest review
