Just like its name suggests, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort can be found along the midpoint of Waikiki Beach, an obvious plus for any Honolulu hotel. The Outrigger Reef is within walking distance of the many shops that are housed within Waikiki Beach Walk shopping complex. But you don't have to stray too far from the resort to have a fun-filled day. This Outrigger property boasts its own list of amenities, including the LaáKea Spa Hawaii, a 24-hour fitness center and surf lessons on the beach. And let's not forget the pool, complete with several chaise loungers, whirlpool spas and food and cocktail service. Meanwhile, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort's guest rooms earn praise from previous guests for their views (travelers recommend requesting a room that overlooks the ocean), as well as their private lanais (balconies). Visitors also give kudos to the eager-to-please service staff, but the standout for many is still the location. Though there are many eateries within walking distance, don't overlook the on-site Kani Ka Pila Grille, which features live Hawaiian music nightly.

Critic Reviews



You'll find the outrigger theme throughout the hotel, such as in the collection of Polynesian canoe art by Herb Kane, who some call the 'father of the Hawaiian Renaissance.'



What had been a plain but pleasant oceanfront bargain now offers polished elegance in keeping with its prime location.



One of the best Waikiki choices in its price range.
