Waipouli Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Kapaa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 March 2008

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Outrigger Waipouli. My family loved it. The property is not a timeshare but all individually owned. Some owners live there full time, some rent their units out, some don't. This a a great place for families or adults.

It is quiet, the pool closes at 10pm and reopens at 8am. so no late night people in the spa being loud.

The pool is like a big serpent. By the water slides more families and a beach area for smaller kids. At the opposite end of the pol there are private places by the pool.

Even though it was a condo daily made service was provided. The units are gorgeous inside. Granite in the kitchen sub zero refrigerator, Viking oven and cooktop. The bathrooms have travertine counters and are very spacious.
We rented a 2 bd 3 bath unit, the bedrooms were separated by the living area, so it worked well for us.

We had an oceanfront unit in the A building. We were about 30-40 yards from the water. Every room had awesome vies. We slept with the windows open every night to hear the ocean.

Food service is lunch and dinner, burgers and sandwiches, and a full bar.

there is a Safeway accross the street so we bought breakfast items and snacks there.

the cost was less than 2 rooms at the Sheraton and great views, more space.

I want to go back!!!!

This resort was absolutely fabulous!
We booked this resorft for 4 days out of our 7 day trip in Kauai (the other 3 days we stayed in Poipu) and let me tell you, was every hotel we've stayed out after this resort a sore disappointment.
The room we had was more like a super high end luxury model room they show you when you're looking to buy a Condo. They pulled all the stops. Top of the line Subzero fridge and Diswasher, front loading Washer and Dryer. Plasma TV's (YES, two of them) and a fantastic tub that seats two (very romantic for honeymooners).
We had a view of the ocean as well. And Kapaa is very centrally located within the Island, like 15 minutes away from the airport.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The only complain I have about this resort is that it has ruined my wife. She now expects all hotel/resorts to be as nice as this one, and seriously it's going to either cost me a fortune or disappoint her every trip we take. Oh well, I guess that's life.

We stayed for 10 days at the Waipouli Beach Resort and absolutely loved it. The grounds were fantastic, the condo was gorgeous, the staff were very friendly. We felt it was the perfect place to stay, 10 minutes from the airport and half way between everything else. The sand bottom hot tubs were amazing. Grab a drink at the bar and walk 20 feet to the beach.

We didn't bring our kids on this trip but the kids that were there were having a great time on the water slide and in the sandy bottom kiddie pool. Aloha!

I picked this hotel for our trip based upon Trip Advisor comments. I must say we were not disappointed. Everything was just as described by other reviewers. This is an almost brand-new facility and all of the furniture and accessories in the rooms are in top shape. The grounds are immaculate. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We were traveling with our 1-year-old and this was a perfect lodging choice for a family with toddlers. There appeared to be a lot of other families with young children as well, so this might not be the best destination for young singles.

The pool was AWESOME! It was perfect for our little one. The pool side restaurant was surprisingly good and the prices were not astronomical. There are many good restaurants within walking distance and there is a Safeway and a Foodland across the street. (We found Foodland to be more economical. Get yourself a free club card and save even more.) There is a Wal-Mart about 8 miles down the road in Lihue. I recommend going there or Costco (in Lihue also) at the beginning of your trip and fill up the fridge.

We liked Kapaa because it was centrally located. You are about 40 minutes from Poipu Beach and about 40 minutes from Princeville. Traffic can be a nightmare in Kauai, so choose your travel times accordingly. During commute hours, stay off the road!

The only drawback we found at the hotel was the cleaning service. Although everything was immaculate upon our arrival, we found the daily housekeeping service lacked a thorough cleaning. They told us that day 1-3 was a “light cleaning” and the 4th day they do a “full cleaning” to include mopping the floors, etc. We never saw this happen. We had to call housekeeping numerous times. They were extremely nice and always responded quickly—they just didn’t do a very good job.

Overall, this place rates very high with us. We had a fantastic time and the accommodations were great. We highly recommend this facility.

Anyone that has any complaints about this beautiful resort is just one of "those" people that will never be satisfied! This resort was magnificant, clean with very attentive and polite staff who catered to our every whim! The meandering pool was great for kids of all ages (my boys are 12 and 15) and safe for toddlers and senior citizens (we traveled with my elderly parents). The Safeway across the street was very convenient. Others say the restaurants are pricey---NOT!!!! compared to the other islands. The bar and grill at the resort was nice to just grab a quick bite. The hot dogs there were great and so are the wraps at reasonable prices. For the best ribs in town, go to Scotty's, but be warned, make reservations or you may be waiting for over an hour for a seat, if any. Having a washer and dryer in the room was terrific, especially after going on an ATV ride and the kitchen in the room was perfect, especially for breakfast. The grounds had several outdoor grills so we had the men cook the meat and we at 'al fresco' on the linai and watched the beautiful sunst over the pacific. All I can say is that it was total PERFECTION!

Stayed here in a fantastic two-bedroom that had great ocean views. The inside ot this place is very nice and the five of us were all very comfortable. We had a huge lanai with seating for five and had dinner there every night. The kitchen is top of line and the bathrooms are quite large and have a few 'extras'. The beds were comfortable. The location isn't the best because of the traffice, however it was nice being across from the shopping center and the location is pretty central for Kauai. It does have some fun hot tubs (sand in the bottom) and a fairly nice pool area, however the beach isn't the best. We are into exploring and doing other things outside the hotel, so this place was perfect for us. Also, the limited staff I did deal with were all very pleasant and quite helpful.
