Location location location

Our family stayed here for 7 nights and had a fantastic time. The best part was the fact that it is right on the beach so one could either spend time there or on the pool deck, and be within a minute of your hotel room. The pool deck is huge as is the pool - not a bathtub sized like most hotels. The food / drink service around the pool is reasonably priced, and the nightly entertainment is excellent.

Wonderful Location & Welcoming Staff

Every time I stay in Waikiki {this is my fifth stay}, I book a room at the Outrigger. The rooms are clean, the location is unbeatable, and the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. I always feel safe and welcomed at this hotel. Definitely recommend it.

Yardhouse {though a chain restaurant} is located just around the corner and has incredible food and killer drinks… Plus, the atmosphere is fun and lively.

Trip to get away from Winter

The experience at the hotel was fine, what was completely unsatisfactory was that no one met us at the airport at arrival. I did send a e-mail to the agency responsible for booking when I got to my hotel requesting an immediate repayment of the $96 I had paid and an apology. To date I have heard nothing.

right on the beach

We've stayed here 3 times and have only had one somewhat bad experience - music from the pool area at night that's inconvenient for those who go to bed early. The location is great - beach out the back door, dining and shopping out the front. The staff is quite helpful and the rooms are very nice, if not lavish. Will definitelly return again.

Pro-Bowl getaway

Hotel and staff were very pleasant and fun to talk with. Do not eat at either of their restaurants. The service and food was poor. The food was cold and when it was brought to their attention, all they would say was sorry and they would work on it. If you do not eat at the hotel, you’ll be fine. Also be careful when you are out in town. Two blocks from the hotel, I was assaulted while my wife was inside a store shopping. Law Enforcement response and follow up from the local prosecutor's office was poor. Basically, if you cannot stay in town to testify in court, the Prosecutor's Office will not file charges against anyone that assaults/attacks you or those you care about. Travel in groups when you go out

Stayed here for 5 days and was a great time. Perfect location on the beach. Walking distance to most of the popular Waikiki side beaches and near the shopping area.
