Editor’s Review of Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort is one of just two Outrigger Hotels and Resorts on Oahu in Hawaii; the other is Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, a short walk away.

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort is slightly larger than its sister, and offers more accommodation variations -- including connecting rooms that sleep up to 12 guests.

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort offers similar services and amenities, such as a small swimming pool, cultural programming, onsite dining (plus discounted options for children), and best of all, a beachfront location. Only seven hotels are located right on the beach in Honolulu, and Outrigger Reef on the Beach is lucky enough to be one of them.

This hotel has a total of 635 accommodations, each one equipped with a coffeemaker and (empty) mini-fridge, plus standard amenities: hairdryers, safes, irons and ironing boards, daily maid service and the like. Most rooms also feature balconies, with the exception of standard rooms.

Note: There is a limitation of four guests per room, even if you have an infant sleeping in a crib; cribs are complimentary upon request.

Rates are based on single or double occupancy, but third and fourth guests can stay free if they are 17 years old or under. Otherwise, a charge of $75 per person, per night applies. Connecting rooms are available for large groups.

Standard (No View)
This is the hotel's most basic room, equipped with one king or two double beds. It doesn't have a lanai (balcony) like all the other rooms. Also, only three people are permitted in this room, making it best for couples or those traveling with an infant. It is 340 square feet.

City View
This room faces other buildings in Waikiki, and comes with one king bed; one queen and one double sofa bed; or two double beds. It is 350 square feet.

Garden View
This room offers the same bedding options and square footage as the City View, but instead features views of the hotel's landscaping.

Partial Ocean View
"Partial Ocean View" means that if you stand on the balcony and turn your head, you'll be able to see the ocean. This room is 355 square feet and has one king or two queen beds.

Ocean View
This room offers a view of the ocean -- it is not totally oceanfront -- and is equipped with one king bed or two queens. It is 340 square feet.

Deluxe Ocean View
The difference between Deluxe Ocean View and Ocean View is that Deluxe Ocean View is closer to the ocean. It has one king or two queen beds, and is the same size as the Ocean View.

Diamond Head Ocean View
This room has one king bed or two double beds, and offers a fantastic view of Diamond Head, plus of course, views of the ocean. It is 340 square feet in size.

This room is right on the ocean, with one king bed or two doubles and one double sofa bed; the latter option only accommodates up to four people, though. This room offers 405 square feet in which to spread out.

1 Bedroom Suite
For extra space, choose a one-bedroom suite with a city view or ocean view, or select one that is completely oceanfront. There is a king bed in the bedroom, and then a queen sofa bed in the living area for a maximum of four guests.

2 Bedroom Oceanfront Suite
In this unit, one bedroom has a king bed, another has a queen bed, and then there's a double sofa bed in the living area. Up to six people can sleep in this room -- perfect for families. These rooms start at 1,038 square feet.

3 Bedroom Oceanfront Suite
This connecting room option sleeps up to nine people, with two king beds, one double bed, one queen sofa bed, and two double sofa beds.
