It's easy to believe paradise really does exist at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, with accommodations in the Ocean and Pacific Towers allowing full views of the Hawaiian island. Having undergone a $110 million renovation in 2009, you'll now find historian Herb Kane's collection of Polynesian canoe art mounted in the lobby, a Hawaiian literature library next door, and lots of extras like high-speed Wi-Fi around the pool (fees may apply) and direct phone calls to the US mainland (fees may apply). The resort ensures that guests get the most out of island life, from private surfing packages to hula lessons, all topped off with a fruit-packed cocktail and local pupus (hors d'oeuvres) at the poolside hangout, Kani Ka Pila Grille.

Neighborhood
The Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort has a prime Hawaiian setting on the southern shores of Oahu, with barefoot access to the silky sands of Waikiki Beach. Roam the lush 500 acres of Kapiolani Park, or chase butterfly fish at the Waikiki Aquarium - both are within a mile of the hotel. Even stargazing from the Diamond Head crater is within walking distance of each guest's front door. If you crave designer labels, nearby Kalakaua Avenue beckons with upscale boutiques, fine jewelry emporiums and antique treasures.
Hints and Tips
There are different live music acts playing at the Kani Ka Pila Grille every night of the week. When the sun goes down, check out the Waikiki Beach Walk complex on Lewers Street, or the laidback, retro vibe of bars like Lulu's Waikiki, which becomes a club after the dinner crowd fades.

Great hotel

Great stay at the hotel. The staff was extremely nice and you can't beat the location. The only thing I would change is the vendors at the small store need to stop offering samples every time you walk by their store. When you are forced to walk by multiple times a day it can become annoying

Perfect Location & Room for Families w/ Young Children

We had a perfect experience at the Outrigger Reef hotel in Waikiki. The spacious 1 BR suite was perfect for our family - we have a 2 yr old and a 5 yr old. The crib they provided was quite nice and the fridge and sink area came complete with a microwave. The nice thing was that we didn't have to ask for these things and we were not nickled and dimed. Everything was included and there was NO resort fee!!! The restaurants had great menu choices for kids and the hotel is just a quick walk from an ABC store to grab milk as well as other fun restaurants. We look forward to the opportunity to stay here again!

For a change of scenery, the Sheraton Waikiki is about a 4 minute walk and has a great breakfast buffet with fabulous options for kids. You can sit and look out at the ocean. Heaven!

Perfect Spot for a Family w/ 2 Little Ones!!

The Outrigger Reef was a last minute booking for us and we couldn't have picked a better spot! The hotel pool is the perfect team and has a roped off area indicating the "shallow end.". They have great kids food options at Shore Bird that are very fairly priced. Great beach access and an easy walk to the nearby hotels for a chance of scenery. Fun live music by the pool in the evenings. Very convenient to all family-important amenities and a Starbucks on site. We stayed in the 1bd suite which provided out family with plenty of room for both the pull-out couch and a crib, a great (and cold!) Mini-fridge, and great black out curtains for a napping baby. We'll be back for sure!

Had a great time at Outrigger Reef on the Beach

Excellent location, great staff, very clean hotel. The hotel's beach is a bit small but the hotel is located a few feet away from two great beaches.

Family Vacation

Hotel was nice and clean. Only complaint were the many birds that aggressively searched for food. The walls were then so you heard neighbors especially on their patio.

Best location on Waikiki Beach!

We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights at the Outrigger Reef hotel on Waikiki Beach. It was our first time in Hawaii and the host at the check in guest gave us an "ocean view room" even though we may have originally booked a "partial ocean view" because we were celebrating our anniversary. The view from the room was stunning! Open the doors to the balcony and we were basically floating on endless blue water. The sand of the beach is small so the room (and hotel) is very close to the ocean. The room was comfortable. The hotel is a great location choice on Waikiki. The beach is easily walkable from one end to another and this hotel is in the center of the walkable board walk and marina on one side and the other large hotels and large surfing beach on the other. There is a path to walk along the beach all the way past the large hotels and restaurants. The beach in front of the hotel is small and has a reef but still able to swim. There are great restaurants in the hotel and you can enjoy a meal while looking out onto the ocean. Do not confuse this with the Outrigger that has "Dukes" restaurant on the first floor. That hotel is good to visit for food and fun (short walk) but this hotel looked nicer to stay and relax. I would definitely stay here again for a great time in a great location and beautiful setting.

Get up early while you are here! The best time on Waikiki beach starts by 7am when you can watch the surfers already out in the beautiful ocean. Go for a walk or jog along the beach or boardwalk to really appreciate the beach in the morning!
