“Not a bad value for the money”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Just stayed at the Luana for 5 nights while vacationing with family in Oahu. The hotel itself is just average when it comes to the room which has basic appointments. The bathroom was small and the decor a bit dated and in slight disrepair (cracks in the wall and paint discolorations). However, considering its location about 10 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to high-end shopping and restaurants, the price makes the Luana a good value. The rooms and the hotel were clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and our room had a kitchenette with a small fridge, and plates, cups, and utensils, but no stove or microwave. We originally selected this hotel based on perceived value and though there is no direct beach access, or sweeping views from your room, the location is right at the edge of the action giving us what we wanted: access to the action, but just far enough to not get swept up in it. For value minded travelers, I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher floor.

Just stayed at Luana over President's weekend. The location was great, a short walk to a lot of food, bars and about 5 minutes to the beach. The rooms aren't anything fancy but they have everything you need, including a little kitchenette. The staff was friendly and accommodating the activities desk is very helpful and knowledgeable about things to do. The pool is very small, but who needs the pool when you have the beach right behind you. I only went to the pool to lay out and tan one day when I was too lazy to take the 5 minute walk to the beach. The fitness center is also decent. This hotel is one of the best options in the Waikiki area for the price.

Room Tip: I paid an extra $10 a night for the partial ocean view room. It was worth turning over in bed in the...

I stayed in the outrigger from October 18th til the 29th 2011. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the fron desk. The lobby is a little dated but very well air conditioned throughout the hotel. The room was very clean, simple and very comfortable beds. It included a small kitchenette for making toast and coffee in the morning.there is a small freeze/fridge as well as a balcony overlooking the city with an ocean view!They have a well kept pool outside and a nice sun deck with towels put out every morning [front desk is happy to refresh your towels anytime!] and an outdoor bbq area next to the gym. There is also a reception area on the 2nd floor which has different events-wine tastings... Also it is a 10 minute walk to Waikiki beach and right along the main strip close to lots of great shopping and restaurants! I went for nightly walks and discovered so many great places [Cheescake Factory, Ala Moana Center [the largest open air mall in the world] , Keos thai restaurant, and my favourite Italian restaurant Arancino- lobster to die for! Very high energy!! I walked through all the hotels around the city. Gorgeous gardens in the Hilton Hawiian Village with flamingoes, turtles, parrots, koi fish, penguins! Great prices for what you get! The front desk is very helpful and if you plan on extra activities its cheaper to book through this hotel. we did the North Shore shark cage diving as well as the dolphin/snorkelling catamaran tour. Both were amazing and picked us up in a shuttle and drove us back for an xtra fee. I would definately go back again and recommend it to everbody!!

We stayed here one night in a City/Park View hotel room (it faced the city). It was clean, comfortable, and was what I'd expect for the price we paid. I'm unsure what else we could have expected and found it to be great value.

The fridge was a great size, even though we didn't need to use it. The coffee and tea selections were adequate; a few herbal tea options would have been a nice touch. The size of shampoo and conditioner provided were generous.

Front counter staff were all pleasant. Could have done with a few more smiles, but we managed to elicit a few after the initial greeting.

All in all, a good value experience. We will be staying there again for three nights in a few days' time when we head back to Waikiki, so I'll be interested to see if our experience is the same this time with a Partial Ocean View hotel room.

This year, we tried a 4 day stay at the Outrigger Luana in Waikiki. The views from this hotel are really great in that it overlooks Fort Derussy Park; some rooms would include an ocean view. The bed was the most comfortable one we've experienced in our travels. While we hadn't requested a suite with full kitchen, we were pleased to be provided with a fridge, toaster, dishes, cuttlery and coffee maker but no cooking facility. The kitchen and bath areas had granite countertops and marble surrounds. TV was a flat screen model. The lanai was rather small and there was a bit of a problem aligning the locks on the lanai door. There is a guest laundry area. The pool lounges had comfy mattresses on them. Now for the negatives: the pool is too cool, which is becoming an annoying complaint of visitors to Hawaii. The other concern is bus service could be more conveniently located. All in all, I'd recommend the Outrigger Luana based primarily on the hotel itself and it's picturesque location in Waikiki.

Room Tip: Be sure to specify the view you require and whether or not you need to have a stove for cooking.
