We always have the same room and it was clean and well stocked as usual. Shao the housekeeper from our floor welcomed...

Good morning, It is disappointing to read you felt intentionally deceived on check in; I offer apologies and wish to assure you there was certainly no malice intended. All efforts are made to clearly identify the product proposition and I am sorry if this was in any way misleading. I trust the alternate accommodation options provided by our hosts at...

The location of this hotel is very convenient. Very close to the beach and walking distance to all the shops. The rooms are simple and clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, including the ladies in the car park. Value for money.

We were on the 15th floor with a city view room and stayed for 10 nights. The room itself was not the largest but we were only there for sleeping and an afternoon rest some afternoons otherwise we were out sightseeing. The daily resort fee included unlimited wi-fi which was great and free transport on the pink line trolley which...

First time staying at this hotel and found this to be a good place to stay. It's a bit outdated in terms of furnitures and the bathroom is so small. Noticed a few cracks and whoever designed how a bathroom should look like should be fired. Other than that, the room is very clean and tidy, staff here in general...

Mahalo, Oh my, “whoever designed how a bathroom should look like should be fired” is the statement of the year. If you have never read the book Kelleys of the Outrigger its an entertaining journey of our founders. It will certainly give you an insight into the design behind our Hotel. Whilst, as your host, I can’t attend to the...

Aloha Maree Thank you so much for the kind words.

My room wall shared with the wall of the elevator. When the city was falling sleep, I could lie awake to hear the elevator ran up and down. I felt like my bed was placed on the rail road. As I could not sleep because of the elevator noise, I could see some small size roaches crawled along the wall...

Good morning, Your review on this forum appreciated but whilst I am sorry we appear to have fallen short of your expectations this is not an appropriate forum for addressing individual staff performance by name. I would welcome the opportunity to address with you directly but will not do so on a public arena. Mahalo Niel Mason

We had a great stay at this hotel. It's so close to everything and the staff were lovely. I'd stay here again. It's not the newest hotel but everything was very clean and it's a non smoking hotel. It also gas a pool and gym
