Hotel's Favourite
TLDR

Resort overall - 5 stars

Service - 5 stars 

Location - PERFECT. 

Right on the beach, yet walking distance to an array of eateries, shops

Sleep Quality - Incredible. 

Listening to the sound of the ocean, it doesn't get better than that!

The bed and linens were so comfy and luxurious.

Room - Beautiful. Bright. Airy. Clean. New!

They recently did a renovation so the room was really new with all new furnishings and such!

Cleanliness - So fresh and so clean. 

Thanks to Sonia D. who took care of our rooms. 

This is why we return year over year. But this year, something felt even more magical with the hospitality.

Long Version:

We were so excited to return to the Outrigger Reef after taking a pause on traveling due to the pandemic. We traveled as a family of 6 with 3 rooms in total booked. 

We have been visiting The Outrigger Reef for the past 20+ years because it has always been an excellent hotel located on the beach of Waikiki yet within walking distance to so many eateries, stores, and more. 

The excellent hospitality was felt from when we first arrived at the valet area. John (who we remembered from previous years) was there to greet us which was so nice to see a familiar face. I'm not sure exactly how many years he has been working at Outrigger Reef but he is a staple figure every-time we arrive in the more recent years. He always has the best recommendations. Then there was Deemer who was at valet and also helped with the bell desk and was so cheerful and offered suggestions. All the valet crew are always so cheerful and helpful, asking if we need directions, etc. always welcoming us back with such warmth and kindness. I wish I could have remembered all their names, especially the one who recommended Yogur Story as a breakfast spot, which did not disappoint. All I remember is that his fave were the Red Velvet Pancakes!

After valet, we headed over to the lobby/reception area where we were warmly welcomed by Rick who truly embodied the aloha spirit and extended hospitality like no other....Aira was able to help us with arranging special gifting in the rooms prior to arrival. The resort manager, Ceci H. was instrumental in helping me plan surprise and delight moments for our family traveling and our vow renewals as well. Her level of attention to detail, thoughtfulness, and thoroughness is unreal, and I am so grateful for her support and hospitality from even before we arrived on the island. !

The property is extremely clean, airy, and comfortable. The renovations were so beautiful. Our rooms were always left clean thanks to Sonia D. who was very attentive and had a special skill of knowing when to clean our rooms. She was super sweet, genuine, and seems to truly enjoy her job. It was a joy to see her daily. Our room types were ocean view and partial ocean view which was worth the additional cost. There is nothing like listening to the sounds of the ocean when going to sleep, waking up, or just chillin’ in the room. And the view, just priceless. We could just sit on the lanai for hours. We brought many meals back to our room just to enjoy the sights and sounds.

The restaurant on the ground floor was so convenient, with tasty food, and they had something for everyone in our traveling party (accommodating for some in the group w/food sensitivities). Our favorite drink…the “Lava Flow.” We learned of the Voyage 47 Club, which gives you a bit of premium access and are looking to explore what that looks like for our next visit! 

To all of the above whose names I mentioned, mahalo.

To all of those whose names I couldn't catch (vacay brain), but worked from August 7 - August 14, mahalo.

To the General Manager of this property, mahalo.

And one more time, to Ceci H., mahalo.

We don't do great things in life, alone...the vision, leadership and strategy to inspire your team to deliver exceptional service was seen and felt by our family.

While the property, rooms, location are all 5 star...it's really the staff that made it special and stand out. This was a very memorable trip for us because of all of you. It's a trip that our hearts and souls needed after dealing with several tragedies and losses in our family and circle of friends during the pandemic. 

Thanks again for welcoming and greeting us and providing an amazing experience. 

With appreciation...RM

Our last stay in Waikiki was four years ago at this hotel - it’s now almost finished it’s renovation and looking very good, and has the same friendly and well trained staff who make the stay very pleasant. Our room was very clean and the housekeeping staff were outstanding. This is a property that works hard to treat guests well without being cloying. We always take in the benefits of the Voyager Club, and the offerings there have been superb.

I booked the reservation through TripAdvisor to save off of the rack rate on the hotels site and was happy I did. The hotel itself has been renovated, with an open airy valet drop off and front desk. It is also located right in the heart of Waikiki with many restaurants and shopping within walking distance. If you want a big beach front for your stay, this is not the hotel you should stay at because the beachfront area is limited. The good definitely outweighs the beachfront size and here are a few I want to highlight: updated Contemporary decor, great grill on site for meals, rooms are sizable with new furniture, friendly staff and a free vow renewal ceremony every Tuesday and Friday. The ceremony includes an officiant, hula dancer, photographer and ukulele player/singer beachside. The only thing I did not like about our room was the shower head, I'm short and it was almost at the ceiling hitting me in the face every time I showered. The valet parking and resort fee is now $45 a day but the hotel did honor my $40 resort fee from my booking prior to the price increase so that was very nice. I will definitely recommend and/or stay at this hotel in the future. Btw...you also get a free bag to use for the beach or shopping and metal water bottles. I won't tell you what it is but maybe even a little surprise at check-in.

The staff was great and greeted us warmly the minute we arrived. The bellmen took care of our luggage promptly with smiles and desk staff was very helpful with directions and information. In the morning, the housekeeping staff was greeting us and cleaned the room very well. The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. Nicely decorated and fresh from the new remodel this year. We had a corner room with two balconies, one facing the city and one facing the ocean and park. We watched the Friday night fireworks from there too! Lots of room for luggage but could have used more counters to place bags etc. Nice walk in shower and clean bathroom. Good vanity with lot of space. The food was delicious and we ate there for every meal. The wait staff is exceptional! We loved the live music and Hawaiian dancing. It was so relaxing to be there. We felt like part of a family. The pool area was kept clean and busy but we were able to find loungers any time we went there. Loved walking out to the beach and the park beach right next door. Saw turtles there and enjoyed walking along the beachfront. It isn't recommended to swim as the water is rocky within a few feet of the beach but it was nice to watch and listen to the waves and walk about into the water a foot or two. If you want to go to the swimming part of Waikiki beach it looks like a little bit of a walk but not too far, maybe 10 minutes. There are stores to walk to within a couple of blocks if needed. We highly recommend this hotel.

All the employees we encountered at Outrigger Reef were SO friendly. It’s a cheerful & happy environment. Our check-in was a little complicated because we wanted to change the credit card we used to reserve room then it was switched again because parents wanted to pay for our room. Manager Stanley St. Charles was so patient, kind & friendly in setting up this credit card switch. He made us feel so welcome! Rick at front desk and Karson with valet were great! Special shout out to Shyla for going the extra mile to reserve a table for ten people at hotel restaurant. Shyla was so helpful and friendly. Housekeepers were so very nice and always greeted us when they saw us. Our room was spotless and brand new! The grill restaurant has great nightly music and the hotel will inform guests by text of times of nightly music and daily activities. We had a wonderful time at the Outrigger Reef and loved our oceanfront room! Unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean.

Cannot recommend hotel more highly. From the moment we got there we were greeted by the most friendliest and welcoming staff. Big shout out to Frank, Joe, Rick and Shaylla from the V47 Club. I can only name these few but everyone was truly amazing.st (apologies for spelling). They made us feel like family. We had an ocean front king room and it was amazing - you could almost touch the water! many times we saw turtles swimming around. Housekeeping kept our room spotless. The V47 Club was worth every penny. Beachfront, perfect sunset views and unlimited cocktails and snacks where we didnt have to buy dinner some nights as they were quite substantial. I personally like the location as it is away from the hustle and bustle yet walking distance to everything you need. If you plan on swimming in the ocean bring along some water shoes as it is quite rocky.

The Outrigger Reef Resort was amazing! The entire staff was truly one of the greatest and friendliest groups I've ever encountered. Literally every staff member we encountered was extremely helpful and kind. Karson from the valet team was THE BEST! He's awesome! In addition to the amazing staff, the on-site restaurant has delicious food as well live music every night. I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone!
