Waipouli Beach Resort & Spa Kauai by Outrigger

Kauai, Hawaii

The hotel

Set along Kauai’s Coconut Coast on two oceanfront acres, this resort offers a choice of well furnished apartments. A beautiful heated river pool meanders through the manicured gardens, with waterfalls, water slides and whirlpools. For an indulgent treat, the oceanfront Spa By The Sea offers a wide range of wellness services, such as massages, body treatments and even a Japanese soaking tub. Oasis on the Beach is just as the name suggests — dine on delicious cuisine, nearly all locally sourced, and sip on tropical cocktails as you gaze out over the gardens and beach. After dinner, there’s a seaside walkway, ideal for a moonlit stroll. If you like to be more active, hire a bicycle and ride along the four-mile Kapaa coastal trail, enjoying spectacular ocean views as you pedal.

We were robbed at the pool. Do not leave your things unattended at the pool. It is a lagoon style pool and very beautiful, but as soon as we went around the bend, our stuff was stolen. So disappointed.

We stayed here in unit G402, oceanfront. This is a great unit in every way except one, the bed. It is TERRIBLE. There is no support from the mattress or box spring at all. We sunk into it like a sinkhole. Had to put a bunch of pillows under the mattress just to make it possible to sleep, poorly. The rest of the unit and resort are great, but the… Read more

The rest of the unit and resort are great, but the bed in this unit is making us think of going somewhere else next time. Would've got 4.5 out of 5 if not for the ridiculous bed. Read less

First, all units are different so make sure you do some research when you book your condo here. All the rooms are different, so you may find a great review for one, but a terrible review for another.

First, all units are different so make sure you do some research when you book your condo here. All the rooms are different, so you may find a great review for one, but a terrible review for another. You will find this resort listed on all sorts of websites. The best value is to find them via a local Kauai property management company (look on their sites first to avoid the "BRBO" and "CLAIRBNB" fees...please note this resort regardless of where you book will tack on cleaning fees, a daily resort fee and they also charge if you do not return pool towels at end of stay...these fees are all unavoidable so just be aware of those added costs). Our unit was perfect for us! It was updated nicely and clean. I found the staff that we did interact with to be very professional and friendly. This resort is in a great location. If you are debating which side of the island to stay on and you don't have a couple of weeks to split between the north and south side, just stay here. The island is not that big and roads can get busy, but this is still a good spot to do day trips to both sides of the island. The Safeway closest to the resort is just okay (works in a pinch or if you are exhausted when you get there). The nicer one is in Lihue (by Costco, Costco if you have a card is also an excellent grocery option, but be prepared to wait in line for gas there). I recommend going to Lihue to shop (but again you are close for last minute things, it's just not stocked that well). The pool is awesome. My kids loved it. The beach is not the best on the island, but it is nice and so cool to be able to walk over at anytime. We did spend time in the water (ocean) right at the resort and also lots of sand if your kids love to play in it. Read less

Our overall experience was great. The view from the oceanfront unit (G406) was spectacular, the condo was nicely appointed with updated kitchen and bathrooms, beach access was superb, the pool is great for young children and the staff was friendly and professional. That was the good, here is the bad. Our unit G406 has old furnishings which were not comfortable to say the least, the sofa sleeper was not usable as a pullout. The mattress was so lod you could feel every spring and due to the humidity you could see the rusting from the springs, the couch dipped to the back and was uncomfortable to sit on without the help of extra pillows from the bedroom. The sitting chairs weren't to bad just old, the beds in both rooms were used to the point that when laying on the mattresses there were valleys not simple indents where previous people had slept but actual cavernous valleys limiting where one could actually sleep. I wrote outrigger who manages this property and was told there was nothing they could do for my family due to the resorts capacity which I understand. The manager then went on to embarrass himself by offering a $100 dollar credit for the issues which doesn't even pay for a dinner on the town which I found to be disrespectful. Overall the resort is good but I would not stay there again or recommend to friends or families. Read less

Great location. Certainly located in Kapaa. Easy to get around the island. The room was extremely clean and what a view of the mountains. Staff was friendly and stayed out of your way. My family and I loved the place. I would absolutely stay there again.
