I had actually stayed here back in November 2007 but was not a member of TripAdvisor yet.
We had booked this through a third party since according to the Outrigger website there were no rooms available, or the one bedroom suites were not available.
Writing this is based on memory and I will say this property has absolutley great rooms, I wished I had its kitchen here at home! The property at the time was less than a year old so everything was practically brand new.
Some of the best things I remember in the room was the two LCD widescreen TV's, DVD players, fully equiped kitchen, sub-zero fridge, dual drawer dishwasher (first I've ever seen), big monster stove/oven, front load washer/dryer, two bathrooms, separate shower/tub and plenty of room. What's really nice about this is that most of the units are privately owned and managed by Outrigger so there where some beach items in the room that were available to use courtesy of owner.
The restaurant in the facility was not up to par in my opinion, maybe because there are too many options right down the street?
The pool area is nice, not as big as the website pictures show, but it's better to venture out to the beaches.
Across the street is a Safeway and Long's where you'll find almost everything you need. ABC Store and Starbucks too! And today (2009) there's a Papaya's Natural Foods Store (sorry no Whole Foods...yet). It's basically a small shopping plaza.
I really wanted to stay here again as I thought it was central to Princeville and Poipu Beach and very nice rooms, but for my trip (August 2009) there were no one bedroom suites available, only two bedrooms which drove the rates way too high. (For the August 2009 trip we stayed at the Westin Princeville, read my write-up if you have time).
At the time when I booked this in 2007 the room rate was averaged around USD $189 per night, and stayed for five nights.
We went to several different beaches for snorkeling but eventully went back to Lydgate Park, they have the best beach because there's a water-break for the waves so it's very calm and many fishes...buy some fish food from the ABC store, the fishes will love you!
Staff wise, only dealt with them checking-in and out. Average when it comes to welcoming, nothing really stood out.
Hope this helps!
