Superficially looks nice but...

At first sight, the condos were pleasant and the pool looks awesome! But on closer and deeper inspection, this place was not what we were expecting. Upon check-in, they hit you with the cleaning fee which you must pay up front ($200) but they don't actually clean your room until you leave! And when we got in, the bathroom wasn't even clean (the toilet actually was far from clean)... And the beds- I should have slept on the floor- lumpy and barren mattress, no support at all. The pull out couch was just the wire frame, again, no actual padding....when I asked them about the mattresses, they send a few threadbare portable futons for the kids to sleep on. Granted, there were some benefits too, which included the location, full kitchen, and shopping marts across the street. The pool is awesome but it was very very cold (probably not an issue if you go during the warmer season). The staff was nice, very kid friendly, and answered many of our questions, but overall I would Not recommend this place nor would I revisit it in the future.

Very Disappointed

Pros: The feeling of small apartment.
Cons: Staff communication between hotel and HOA.
We recently stayed at this hotel as part of a vacation package booked through Travelocity. The room itself was very well appointed, however the partial mountain view was the main road through the island and all we really viewed was the Safeway sign across the street. The road noise was such that we could not enjoy the lanai. (This should be stated in the overview of the room).The hotel staff was not at all knowledgeable about the property. Their explanation was they only checked folks in and out, the actual responsibility was the HOA and all that could be done was to send them information on maintenance issues. Internet connection was in the room, but when utilized our computer said service was not secure. Maintenance had no clue. The elevator was not working, when we reported it to the front desk the staff did not know about it and said they would have to check with maintenance although on our way to the car the elevator service company was coming in to repair.Obviously there is no communication between entities.

wonderful honeymoon!

I was really happy with everything.... though we did upgrade to ocean side because the street/ Safeway side ("mountain view") was not pleasant or mountainous. Grills, hot tubs, pool were great and the room and kitchen outstanding.  Subzero fridge!

Great location, beautiful rooms and setting

Pros: Free Internet, air conditioning, great for families, location was convenient to whole island
My family and I loved staying here for 8 days in August. The pool was so much fun, the air conditioning was a must during the day and the wifi, though slow at times, was easy to access. Our only complaint was that our condo didn't have salt and pepper provided. Otherwise, we thought it a great place to stay!!!

Horrible view, lackluster staff

Cons: poor views, uncaring staff
We booked a Garden View room. Upon arrival we found our first floor room looked out onto the parking lot. When we complained, the guy confirmed we were in a "Garden View" room and told us there was no other room available to move us to. Clearly, the resort and I have very different views of what makes a garden. Housekeeping only visits every 3 days, which meant we got maid service once in our 5 day trip. They swapped towels & sheets and emptied the trash, but didn't do anything else we could see. Finally, we had to approach the staff for questions or concerns about several times. Every case involved a different employee, but each encounter produced poor results. From a lack of concern about our view to a worker who wanted ME to call the WiFi company to find out why I could no longer connect in our room to the denial of a late-check out, we never felt the staff made any effort to be accomodating. We walked away from every staff encounter - and from the Waipouli Beach Resort - feeling empty and unsatisfied.

This hotel was exceptional value and the location was ideal!

What a fabulous introduction to Kauai! We had such a great time and it was largely due to the hotel and it's location. We were so pleasantly surprised that the photos online were accurate portrayals of the units. The amenities in the units were top notch, nicer appliances than I have at home! The pool was great as well. The only slight con is the furniture is nice but the couch was showing signs of wear.

This was a lovely place! It was quite and very comfortable.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Some very nice beach areas. Lots of places to eat. Wahoos a must. Shopping across the street for everything you might need food, booze, and gifts. If I can I will be back for sure. Had a very relaxing time.

Nicest accommodations in Kapaa.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, central location, helpful concierge
This was a great place to stay on the island, you will be very pleased with it! The property itself is beautiful and spacious with lovely rooms. The staff were outstanding in their friendliness and helpfulness. You can walk out to the beach (can't snorkel or surf right there, but you're very close to beaches where you can). There's a shopping center and grocery store just across the road.
