My family and I just got back from a seven-night stay in an ocean-view one bedroom (B209). Very good value for the $$. We used to live down the road in Kahana, and I would often go snorkeling in Honokeana Cove (to the left of the Outrigger) to see the green sea turtles who hang out there. On this trip I wanted my kids (ages 8 & 11) to enjoy this unique Maui experience, since they were too young to do so when we lived there. Our first morning we went down to the cove, and within 30 seconds we were in snorkel heaven. They later joked that the cove was like "Turtle Soup." If you want to snorkel with turtles and see lots of marine life up close, the Napili Outrigger puts you within a few hundred yards of the best snorkel spot on Maui. Believe me, no boat trip can ever beat it (I've been on them all), so save your money for other pleasures.
We paid $190/night, booked directly with Outrigger. Check-in was fast -- got our towels, key cards, and headed to our room. The upstairs units are best, as the high ceilings really help keep the place cool, plus you don't have anyone creaking around above you or walking right past your lanai. Two daybeds in the living room for our 2 kids, a seperate bedroom in the back towards the parking lot, sparse but quaint island decor, and ceiling fans (no AC). Fully-loaded kitchen with new toaster, coffeemaker, dishwasher, refrigerator, all the utensils and dishes/glasses you need, includiing BBQ stuff. All very clean. Big shower, hairdryer provided. Plan to make use of the broom in the closet as you'll be tracking in sand, and regular maid service is only every 3rd day (if you want it every day just call and it's no extra charge). I brought ear plugs as I am sensitive to noise, turned out to be a good idea due to proximity of parking lot to master bedroom. Car alarms, the bane of modern existence, would go off at night - not the hotel's fault. People in general were very considerate of the quiet hours, we found -- but if there's a baby in the next room, or you're unlucky enough to lodge next to the "Loud Family from Hell" (there's always one in every hotel) you're going to hear it.
Definitely try Fish & Poi one night, or for lunch - it's reasonably priced, and the food is very fresh and very good. They have a daily happy hour from 4-5pm with reduced-price drinks and pupus. The Gazebo is still as good as I remember, not worth waiting in line for every morning, though. Try the Coffee Store in Napili Marketplace up the road (they have very good quiche, smoothies, and gourmet pastries). Another must-try is the Honokowai Okazuya / Deli down the lower H (lower Honoapiilani Road) in Honokowai - the Lemon Caper Mahi Mahi is fabulous. But the best bet is the Outrigger's own Turtle Soup, it's on the house...
