    Kid-friendly Sustainable Resort Option

    The pools here are so kid friendly for my new swimmers, so this is one we have to keep coming back to! The rooms are spacious enough for little people to stretch during the midday break. We do appreciate the access to the lounge, which has excellent service. Emiel and Robyn helped to accommodate us by helping us access more sustainable options, like glassware over compostables to drink from. There are no composting facilities on this island, so compostable waste goes into the landfill. We are also limited in recycling, and receptacles are not to to date with current standards; this means the recyclables are probably also landfilled. Outrigger has been a leader in sustainable hospitality, and I hope we get to continue to see that trend as disposable flatware and containers are phased out from primary use.

    Best resort, prime location, family friendly

    This is the best resort ever! Location is a prime - right next to coast. Huge swimming pools separated into 2 parts: adult area and family area. The family pool has a big swirling slide that even the adults are having fun playing on. The resort has a big beautiful garden with fruit trees and a chapel. It’s 5 minutes walk to Captain Cook,, where the snorkeling boats depart from. Our room is updated and clean. The resort also has lots of activities every day : from morning yoga, arts and crafts to educational talks about marine life and local culture. We had a blast!

    Under major renovations at the moment

    Recently stayed here and as always, I prefer breaking my review down to two sections as follows: THE GOOD: *Beautiful views along the coastline and the waters that surround. *Manta Ray viewing deck which keeps you on land and above where the Mantas populate - however once the tour boats release out, their lights and feeding attract the population away from the hotel. *Nice pool set up for all ages - the interior pool set aside for 21+ is certainly inviting. *The rooms are spacious and recently renovated. *If you love Manta Rays, this could be your place. Every night the roadway in gets packed with lined up cars waiting to go on a cruise or simply to rent a surfboard or snorkel set to enter the water at the harbor and float among the Rays. THE NEEDS ATTENTION: *The staff try to be friendly, but something is a bit off and I couldn't put my finger on it. A good customer service re-orientation could resolve most of their issues. For example, the bartender in their cafe seemed to be bothered by someone ordering a drink. Odd, isn't it? *They're currently under major renovations and re-construction. As a result, there is lots of construction activity throughout the resort. You'll often see building materials and truss throughout the areas. Lots of earth moving as well. Noise seems to be somewhat controlled, however I was facing the ocean and not all rooms face that way. *The food outlets were pretty underwhelming. Granted most are closed during this renovation period, but they should have better anticipated. *Getting service/attention - similar to first point - it's virtually impossible to reach anyone via the in room phones. They go on ringing forever. Still to this day have no idea if they have room service bc nobody ever answered the phone when I was there. *No beachfront - perhaps the greatest disappointment is that there is zero accessible shoreline. Thats a major tease for someone coming to Hawaii - it's a must to dip in to the inviting waters. The closest place to access the water is in the fairly dangerous adjacent harbor. *The areas around the hotel need attention and perhaps the renovation will help - however some of the structure is in poor shape. *The guest room upgrades were somewhat basic - Outrigger is somewhat synonymous with Holiday Inn on the Mainland. Beds were comfortable and the TV worked really well as did their internet so A+ for those areas.
