We stayed at the Outrigger Lae Nani in November 2011. The Lae Nani is in the town of Kapaa, about midway between the north shore sights and the southwest attractions of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park. We were in building 3, Unit # 333, and it was in excellent condition and beautifully furnished, roomy, comfortable, and clean. There was free wi-fi and the owner had left a book of "tips" with recommended sightseeing, shops, and restaurants. The complex was quiet, almost too much so, and we saw few other residents. The grounds are nicely landscaped, with lots of flowers and palms. The beach in front of the resort is too rocky for swimming, though there is a small protected area that would be good for children. But if you want an active beach scene, this is not the place for you. The pool was good sized with lots of chairs, and like everything else, it was well kept. There are many shops and restaurants nearby, within walking distance or a short drive away. One complaint is that the standard chairs, found on most of the decks, are low and when you sit down the deck railing really obstructs the view - and it's a gorgeous view. We brought the bar height chairs out from the kitchen, and that made a world of difference. For restaurants, we enjoyed Bobby V's, a casual italian spot a half mile north on the main road. Just a bit farther was the upscale Lemongrass Grill and Seafood, where we had a wonderful dinner of sea bass and filet mignon. On our last day on Kauai our plane did not leave till 9:30 PM, so we asked about a late check-out. We were able to stay till 6:00 PM, but at a cost of $75.00 - a bit steep, but we were glad we did it. One final tip - the sign for the Lae Nani is tiny and we drove past it several times before seeing it; there is a sliding gate with an intercom that will connect you to the desk.
