How to Get There
Currently staying in the hotel and definitely underwhelmed by the hotel, the rooms, the location, the food and the pool. Was looking forward to celebrating 15yrs anniversary here, but we are spending most of it away from the hotel. If you’re Aussie this is like 1990s Novotel to give you a comparison.
Firstly this hotel needs a serious renovation. To charge $500+ a night for a room that looks like something from the 1990s is a little much. Very outdated, dark and wooden. Whilst acknowledging that we paid for a partial ocean view room I didn’t think we would actually have to go onto the balcony and hang off it to see the ocean. We also upgraded to the Club Lounge access which is in another tower which requires 2 lifts and a lot of walking. The check in desk didn’t even realise this and we had to tell them we paid for it. No apology or nothing. Mentioned all of this it at check in and nothing offered.
The pool - it’s tiny, crowded and has no ocean views or ambience. If you’re thinking of bringing kids it’s not worth it, not suitable.
The location is ok. If you want to be dead centre then the Sheraton or the other Outrigger is more in the heart of everything.
Now the Club Lounge upgrade we paid for. It might be an American standard but the food offering and drink options here are mediocre. The views and ambience from the lounge are amazing and the highlight of the day but the food needs a serious upgrade to get in line with international standards.
Also don’t rent a car from here. We got the same car down the road $60 cheaper per day.
We stayed her as a family of 3 for 10 days and could not have chosen a better hotel or location. The Aloha welcome on arrival was much appreciated after a very long flight from the UK the luggage guys were really helpful too, and didn't hang around for their tip which was refreshing.
The room was a part ocean view on the 4th floor and I couldn't believe how quite the rooms were, it was very rare we heard any noise from elsewhere. The pillows and beds were super comfy and the room kept clean and fridge topped with bottled water. We ate at the bar for lunch sometimes and at the beach restaurant both were really lovely food and service.
The activities on offer were a lovely touch to find out more about the Hawaiian culture, a special mention to Sherwin who just had the Aloha spirit radiating from him.
When I read the reviews on here a few mention the tired looking lobby and time share - so I came prepared with my big no thanks, and to be disappointed at check in.... I'm not sure which lobby they related to because there was nothing tired about here! Neither were we once asked about time share - although I did see people being shown round.
Overall this hotel has a perfect relaxed atmosphere, fabulous staff, lovely food, and is based in a great location on the quieter end of Waikiki beach. I'm sure there are more up market hotels but I'm not sure they could ever have the same feel.
If you are thinking of booking this hotel you will not be disappointed, one day we hope to return. Mahola x
Outrigger Reef was a wonderful place to stay. Everyone was helpful, pleasant and friendly. Beach is on site and shops are within walking distance. Great staff to book excursions. Shops are also within the hotel with beautiful items to bring home. a piece of paradise.
