“Great place to stay in Maui”
Reviewed 24 May 2006

Firstly, the Napili area of Maui is a great place to stay on the island. The Outrigger Shores is only a 15 minute drive to Lahaina and walking distance to many other resorts and shops. Our unit was very clean and spacious (I highly recommend the one bedroom unit over a studio & get the 2nd floor). The one drawback we found was no air conditioning. Unfortunately, the trade winds were not blowing most of our 12 days, so it was very hot. Even with the fans at full speed & with all the windows open, it was still uncomfortable for sleeping. Having your windows open means you deal with car alarms going off, luggage being wheeled across the parking lot (the rooms back on the parking lot), talking and cat fights! We didn't get one decent night sleep the whole time. Bring your earplugs and expect to be uncomfortable sleeping! That was our only complaint. The units themselves are equipped with everything you need and the grounds are spectacular. We never had a problem getting a bbq & ate dinner on our lanai every night. The two pools are very clean and the ocean pool is very quiet (kids seem to use the other pool more, so it's noisy). Have breakfast at the Gazebo at least once! The line ups start at 7:00 and continue right until it closes at 2:00 (after lunch). You can rest fresh towels daily, otherwise, the rooms are cleaned every third day, which we found was sufficient. We walked to the corner store often, to buy fresh fruit & other groceries. The mall also has many other facilities, including snorkel/boogie board rental. The resort faces lava rock, but the beach is just off to the right of the resort & it's beautiful. We never had a problem getting a spot on the sand & there was great snorkeling as well! I think the resort is good value for what you pay.

I just returned from a blissful 10 day stay at the Napili Shores resort. The resort is a collection of nine two storey condominium unit buildings situated in a quiet oceanfront section of the community of Napili. There are two pools, two whirlpools, a koi pond and numerous gardens and palm trees throughout the grounds. There is a beachfront restaurant, the Gazebo, which serves lunch and a restaurant in the front complex building of the resort, the Fish and Poi, which serves dinner and lunch. The Gazebo is known for its Macademia nut pancakes and there are line-ups for breakfast beginning at 7:30 am.

The resort has access to the crescent shape beach around Napili Bay. The beach is clean and composed of golden sand while the bay offers calm waters due to the presence of a coral reef. The coral reef offers terrific snorkeling opportunities. I went on snorkeling trips to Molokini, Lanai and Napili Bay and found the variety and frequency of ocean and reef life greater in Napili Bay. Snorkel Bob's, a snorkel gear shop located down the road from the Napili Shores resort, rents snorkel gear on a daily or weekly basis. Daily rentals range from $ 5 - 9.00.

The resort offers a daily beach towel service, a condo cleaning service every third day and has an on site laundry. There are also 5 gas barbeques where you can grill your dinner or lunch. The resort's clientele is composed of older couples or young families primarily drawn from the U.S. West Coast. The atmosphere is quiet, laid back and quite friendly.

I enjoyed my stay at the Shores and hope that I can return again. If you're looking for a piece of tropical paradise and want value for the money, this is the resort for you.

Aloha.

My fiance and I just returned from a week long stay at Napili Shores.....Like everyone else, we did a loooot of research but with the help of a travel agent and all the reviews here, we decided on Napili Shores.
This truly is a beautiful property, the grounds are immaculate, yes the rooms are a bit dated and the beds could be better but everything else was so perfect that those were minor in comparison.
Pros:
-Full Kitchen and grocery stores within a couple minute drive (kitchen has stove, microwave, fridge, blender, dishwasher, dishes, silverware, and cooking utensils)
-Quiet private, safe property
-Amazing Beach ( I feel that its not mentiond too much here but the beach is beautiful, private, easy access, great for swimming and great sunsets)
-Can see the ocean from most rooms, even garden view
-It is in a more private area away from the high rises and 5 stars but they are within a 10-15 min drive if you want to eat, shop or drink there
-Free Parking!!!
-Two pools, one jacuzzi, great gas grills

Cons
-Beds are a little hard, but they are manageable
-outdated decor
-we could hear people/kids from our room but wasnt too disturbing

If you are looking for a romantic, private, beautiful, affordable getaway, Napili Shores is fabulous..there are about 5 hotels along Neapili beach that are all condos/low rise. You will not find spring breakers looking to party here, it is more geared towards couples and families. I recommend this hotel highly and will definitely be back!
PS Dont Forget to sign the guest book in your room

The facility was well maintained and the staff helpful. There are about eight 2 story buildings in a "U" configuration. The rooms are exactly like the Candid Pictures.Oddly, our room (A104) had a piano. The kitchens have everything you need to prepare a meal and, since we don't believe Hawaii is noted for it's culinary art, we ate breakfast and most dinners in, enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. There are 2 sets of very well maintained gas grills near the oceanside pool and the pool at the other end of thecomplex. Our rooms did not have A/C; the cool winds -and they really blow- are more than satisfactory to keep you comfortable. We stayed in 2 rooms: G156 and A104. Building G had an Ocean View. We decided we wanted an Ocean Front room (buildlings A & I) and enjoyed being 50' front the crashing surf. It's a very short walk to the pool, seaside cafe, and the beach at Napili Bay. We saw a whale from the cafe! It's a great place for kids and there are kids of all ages. Parking is secure and ample. We had an excellent dinner at the restaurant, Fish & Poi; better than Roy's at 2/3 the price. Personally, I prefer smaller, intimate hotels like this than the high rises where you have to walk forever just to get to the pool, beach, or the car

Of all the places we've stayed at Maui (including Kaanapli Beach Hotel, Planatation Inn, and Outrigger Royal Kahana), this is by far our most favorite place to stay. Very affordable, clean, great garden and a beautiful view by the pool next to the ocean. The second story condo was absolutely gorgeous (recommended over ground leve due to the vaulted ceiling, unless you're looking for immediate access to the garden). Not the most up-to-date, but very clean and functional, also spacey. The kitchen comes with full supply of cooking ware along with all the ammenities you'd expect in your kitchen. The shore by the property is rocky, but in my opinion, it adds far more interest than a sandy beach front, and offers an excellent chance to explore the ocean live in shallow pools between rocks. If you really want to hit a beach, it's a simply three-minute walk from the shore. Definitely do not miss the gazebo for their pancakes with crushed macademia nuts! The gazebo isn't big but very cozy, and offers a great view of the ocean. We even saw whales while having breakfast! We're definitely coming back to Napili Shores for our next trip!

This was our third stay at the Napili Shores. We love the location and the condo gives us flexibility to enjoy our time in Maui. The rooms are clean and maid service was excellent. The room is cleaned every third day. However, if you want it cleaned more often, all you need to do is request it. We always have a hard time leaving the Napili Shores. We'll go back again and again.

Napili Shores is a quiet condo resort at the west end of Maui. After driving all over Maui I prefer the area of Napili/Kapalua the best and I am very glad we stayed here. Napili Shores has a great beach (Napili Bay. The condo has two swimming pools, one up by the ocean and one at the front of the resort. There are several barbeque grills on site, two restaurants and a 24 hour front desk staff.

Pools are on the small side, but hey you have a beach why lay at the pool right? There is a laundry room on site $1.25 for a wash and $1.25 for a dry. The washers do come in handy if you are staying a long time because your clothes do get kind of damp and musty smelling after awhile.
There is an on site concierge to help you book activities and things around the island, although you can do this yourself, it is not always necessary to use the concierge.
Stamp machine onsite for mailing those postcards, however, a 23 cent stamp will cost you nearly double as the hotel charges there own "fee", which I think should be illegal.
Free pool towels, the front desk will give these to you as you check in. However, you do have to return them.
