“Georgeous Location - Excellent Accommodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

This is our second time staying at this condo complex and we'll be back again. Every time we stay here we learn more about how to choose the right condo. Reading some of the other reviews - chilling, and understandable. If you don't know what to ask for, you might get placed in a condo without a nice view, or perhaps one of the owners who don't take care of their property. You do need to be somewhat 'aggressive' in getting the best place - but boy, is it worth it. The ocean front condos are truly on the ocean. We've walked the beachfront and seen all the complexes and Lae Nani is far superior. The grounds are impeccably kept up. I've been congratulating the gardeners on our stay. All the plants, flowers and shrubs are gorgeous, with many palm trees. There are hundred of birds that live here, and walk into your condo from the balcony. I had to meow to discourage them from leaving any surprises in the apartment. The swimming pool is pristine, large and a great way to cool off if the surf is too rough. There's a little beach in front, and if you pick JUST the right spot, you can bathe without being swept away by the infamous Kauai tides. We usually would drive to another beach to swim more peacefully. We never got it together to BBQ (my husband is a master, but I couldn't bear to pay the price of good meats at the Safeway), but they have several first class gas barbies strewn around the property that they prep each night for guest's use. They have a security gate, and plenty of parking. The lovely receptionist is friendly and helpful. This isn't the least expensive place to stay on Kauai, but if you are looking for an amazing quiet, restful and peaceful week, it's worth every penny

Room Tip: Building #5 condos are closest to the ocean. Try to call them direct to choose the condo. No ADA - s...

We're not real picky people but we wouldn't stay at the Outrigger Lae Nani again despite the grounds, beach and pool area. Granted, it's proximity to shopping and restaurants is good and we did appreciate the large lanai and free parking, but we were not impressed at all with the condition of #436. The walls and furniture are beat up and dirty and the carpets, floors and bedroom drapes are filthy. There's a sign at the entrance requesting people to take their shoes off but when we did, our feet ended up absolutely black. The coffee maker leaked, the toaster barely toasted and two of the stove burners didn't work. The ceiling fan is woefully inadequate to keep it cool enough for sleeping at night and although there was a floor fan provided, it also did not work. All in all, not a happy experience.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else ...

It appears that the Lae Nani is a collection of individually owned condos. Some units are nicer than others. Our unit (336) was an older two-bedroom with a queen in the master suite and two single beds in the other. The kitchen was well equiped with plenty of utinsils and even a blender for those tropical drinks. Loved having the louvred windows open at night to let in the fresh, plumeria-scented breezes. No internet service in our unit but there was a DVD/VCR player and a second TV in the master suite. Very clean with good maid service; however, they did change out towels that should have stayed. Nicely landscaped property that's well kept. Nice little pool area. The beach was rather small.
Our flight landed in the evening and it was a little tricky finding the place, the front is not well lit. Luckily, I ran into the security guard who gave us the keys and showed us to the unit. He even carried our bags to the thrid floor for me and my 77 year-old mother. Very courteous gentleman. The manager was also was very helpful the next morning, suggesting some place for breakfast and lending me a phone charger.
Very nearby is a little shopping center, the Coconut Market Place, that's somewhat beyond it's time. However, we really enjoyed the free hula show on Wednesday at 5:00. The kieki (children) were wonderful. Support the hula school with a donation or purchase one of their beauitful leis.

We stayed in a two bedroom ocean view apartment at the beginning of April. This hotel is a collection of apartments and did not have a restaurant - but had fantastic gardens by the beach and a small but lovely pool. The apartment itself was outdated and in need of renovation. The ocean view was also distant - but the large balcony was a great place to eat - the full kitchen was great. The location was off the main road and central to most things on the island - but lacked the beauty of some of the southern and northern beaches . Overall not a bad choice - but do not expect luxury.

Stayed several weeks in Unit 416 Feb 2012, corner ground floor unit, garden view only, carpet stained, but vacuumed. Kitchen cabinets chipped especially door to garbage under sink. Kitchen wallpaper peeling above window. Toilet in master leaks and self-fills very often. Twin beds in second bedroom are very saggy and creak loudly with even the gentlest of movement. Daily maid service excellent at changing linens (obviously no water conservation here), never swept patio once. Excellent location. Large lawns, nice landscaping. Pool is heated to same temp as ocean. 20 min walk to grocery and restaurants. Tennis raquets available at front desk. Management said they contact owners regularly to tell them to update and maintain the suite. Obviously not enforced.

Room Tip: rent directly from owners rather than outrigger may help get a maintained suite.
