Editor’s Review of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort

Outrigger used to be an exclusive name in Hawaii... and it still is. Its popularity has simply helped it expand to other countries, including Fiji and the Maldives. Families visiting Oahu have the option to enjoy the unique brand at this property, along with the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort.

Guests of the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort enjoy direct access to the sand and surf; a swimming pool; onsite (al fresco) dining; cultural activities, such as lei making; and a spa. They also enjoy coupons (included in a resort fee) for activities such as outrigger canoeing (a must at this hotel), and a resort shuttle to local attractions.

Guestrooms feature balconies,
... more coffeemakers, and mini-fridges; the only downside is that there's a maximum occupancy of four guests per unit. Connecting rooms are available, however. less

I had a business trip to Hawaii and we decided to make a family vacation and stay over for the week. Well, it's really interesting that the pictures online are not always what they are in person, as we found out. First, the ...

The Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort is fairly large, with 524 rooms in various configurations. All rooms feature authentic island decor (minimal furnishings and shades of green and beige), balconies, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges (no freezers). Guests receive a free beach bag in their room, as well.

Note: There is a maximum occupancy of four people in each room, but plenty of connecting rooms are available for large groups who want to stay together. Cribs are complimentary, so you can sleep five in one room if traveling with a baby.

Rates are based on single or double occupancy, but children ages 17 and under stay free. For those 18 and up, a $75 charge applies per person, per night.

Guestrooms either have city views, partial ocean views, or ocean views; note that ocean view rooms are not the same as oceanfront. Of course, the more water you see, the higher the nightly fee. Rooms are equipped with one king bed and a sofa bed, or two queen beds and a sofa bed; even though the latter option can technically sleep six, the hotel only allows four people in all guestrooms. Most rooms have a shower/tub combo, though some have a "half" shower/tub combo, which is basically a shower stall with a tub the width of the stall.

Deluxe Ocean View
Deluxe Ocean View rooms are 360 square feet in space, and offer views of the ocean. They have one king bed and one double sofa bed.

This room can be anywhere from 307 to 471 square feet in space, and offers a true oceanfront experience. It comes with one king bed for a maximum of two people, or two double beds and a double sofa bed for a maximum of four guests.

Deluxe Oceanfront With Spa Tub
The main feature of this room is, of course, the spa tub. This room is best for couples (it has one king bed), though a crib can be added for a couple traveling with a baby.

One-Bedroom Oceanfront Suite
This room, which spans 555 square feet, has one king bed and queen bed for a maximum of four guests. It also offers a large living space with a sofa bed, and full-on views of the ocean.

One-Bedroom Diamond Head Oceanfront Suite
This room is the biggest option, with 685 square feet of space. It offers outstanding views of the ocean and Diamond Head. Like the one-bedroom suite, it also has a king bed, queen bed, and large living area with a sofa bed. It accommodates up to four people.
