U.S. News Review

It's easy to confuse this hotel with its sister, the Outrigger Reef on the Beach, which sits less than a mile northwest along the Waikiki shore. Both have similar amenities, restaurants and local cultural programs, and neither one charges a resort fee. But what sets this hotel apart is its location: Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach is a bit closer to the more bustling nest of the city, with a great selection of shops both on-site and just steps from the front door. And while most travelers appreciate the attentive service staff and gorgeous ocean views, but the close proximity to the International Marketplace’s open-air shops earns this hotel extra points. What's more, the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach recently underwent an immense renovation — previous visitors are impressed with the size of the guest rooms here, which now come dressed in tropical decor and feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Should you need a little more R&R, relax poolside with a good book before sitting down to a seafood feast at one of the hotel's restaurants. For a true Hawaiian mean, guests highly recommend the Hula Grill.

Critic Reviews


“It's in the heart of the action on one of Waikiki's best beaches.”


“Renovated in 2012, this star of Outrigger Hotels & Resorts sits on one of the finest strands of Waikiki Beach.”

Lonely Planet

“While not or the classiest or the coolest place, this hotel caters to those tourists who believe it is. Sprawled on a prime stretch of sand, you can hit the surf in the morning then join the party crowd at Duke's Waikiki over sunset cocktails.”
