Waipouli Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Kapaa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We just returned from a ten day stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort in Kauai and were very impressed. The two bedroom, three bathroom suite was a great size for our family of four. We had a ocean view room that overlooked the pool on the 4th floor and we were very happy with the view, the quietness, and the space. The check-in was fast and efficient. The conceirge service was helpful, friendly and not pushy. The house-keeping service was fine, some days better than others.

The pool was a fun shape and size for the kids although it was a bit chilly on some days. It seemed to be more heated on other days. We never had an issue with lack of towels (as reported by some others). Six towels a day was enough for our family and we often took them up to our room and threw them in the dryer. There is plenty of grass space to play ball or other games.

The resort is on the ocean, but is not safe for swimming and was not a long stretch for walking. However, we enjoyed being right next to the Kapaa bike trail along the ocean and used it often for running and biking. We are also types that like exploring, so travelling to different beaches was not an issue for us.
We ate lunch at the Oasis (restaurant by the pool overlooking the ocean) and were impressed. We always meant to go back for dinner, but never got around to it. You can bring your own food and drink to the pool area and there are many tables to sit at.

The location of this resort was central and easy to go north or south. However, we were a bit disappointed with the restaraunt choices in the area and never did find one that impressed us.
When we travelled to Poipu, we found many great restaurants. However, that area is very crowded.

Tips:
I wouldn't chose this resort if I did not have a young family. I wouldn't choose this resort if I wanted a large swimming-lane type pool, or if I wanted pool-side service and beach activity. I would choose this resort for the large condo-type room with lots of space and amenities, a fun pool for the kids and a quiet safe environment for the family.
Bring bug spray, you will need it for the hikes or other outdoor adventures. I also got quite bitten sitting out on our deck at night.
We did the "Tubing the Ditch" adventure and "Outfitters Safari". Both were excellent for our ages of kids (10 and 8). The helicopeter ride was a little boring for the kids (not worth the money).
On the last day, we had to check-out at 12:00, yet our flight wasn't until 9:00 that evening. This resort did offer us a hospitality room to use (meaning a room to shower and change). We decided to go elsewhere. We went to the Marriott in Lihue and for $110 were give an ocean view room for the day. It was the perfect way to spend the last day. This place had lots of pool and beach side service and fun restaurants. We enjoyed our day there, but would not have been able to spend a long period of time in a hotel environment. The space and kitchen at Waipouli Beach Resort was better for us long term. If we went back, I'd probably do part time in a hotel environment that had lots of action and then have quieter time in a condo like Waipouli Beach resort.

Room Tip: I would step up and get an ocean view or ocean front. You do not want a room over-looking the parkin...

We spend 6 nights in a two bedroom, 2 bath unit that was located with a fantastic ocean view. This place is amazing!!! The pools and the grounds were continually cleaned and monitored for cleanliness every morning and evening. There was security walking around continually at night and we felt the utmost in safety for our children during the day or night. The Oasis Restaurant was located right outside the gated area and we could see our unit H306 from the restaurant and were able to leave our kids inside the condo while we ate. The kitchen is fully stocked and felt like home. The appliances both in the kitchen and laundry are top of the line and very efficient. We continually kept up with the laundry. This condo is located across the street from a Starbucks, Safeway Grocery Store (large full service), restaurants and Subway shop. We had everything we needed within walking distance. We are hooked now on the condo way of living while in Hawaii and it is due to this condo experience. The spa was also very nice and located on the property. The maid service is limited so don't expect that to be top of the line but they kept us in fresh towels and the place was kept clean. There is plenty of onsite parking along with a concierge that helps in planning activities. Some of the units are owned but you would not know because they are kept standard across the line. There are 4 bar-b-que (gas) pits and are always being used but always available too. Some families complained about the long codes we had to memorize to access the pool area, but really? This is not a big deal people, we are in Hawaii and that is all we have to remember! The Oasis restaurant is 5 star too with phenomenal food and drinks. We will be back to stay here again without hesitation!!!

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean View since you can see the ocean as if you were in the Ocean Front.

We spent 10 days with our 4 children and had a wonderful time. The appliances and other amenitities were superb. We take regular island trips, to include Kauai, and you just can't get a better room/facility/location/grounds/experience for anywhere near this price on Kauai. The children loved the pool. The location is perfect to run across the street for coffee or other necessities. You are right on the ocean. There are more expensive places to stay on Kauai--for a lot more money--but this place has it exactly right in terms of relaxing by the sea on a beautiful island. You will not be sorry you stayed here.

We went as a family of 4 last April (2011). Brought a 5 year old and a three year old with us from Maryland to Waipouli. It is a vacation still talked about by the kids and my husband!. We would go back in a heartbeat. My now 4 year old said he wants to go there for his 5th birthday! The place is amazing. Clean, friendly and accommodating staff from the front desk, to room cleaning to the pool towel helpers to the Koi fish food helpers! Awesome. Located across from grocery store so you can cook in your awesome kitchen or out at the grill. Prices at the grocery store are very high so it is not a huge savings. The location is perfect for sightseeing the whols island and located close to airport and local golf.

Room Tip: We had a great room on the corner of the building over looked part of parking lot but wasn't bad...

We just returned from a wonderful week in Kauai at the Waipouli Beach Resort D303. This was our first time to Kauai so we picked this condo for the central location and fun pool for our kids. We made multiple trips to beaches on both the north and south parts of Kauai and also visited Waimea Canyon on the west side. The kids LOVED the pool, especially the waterslides and probably logged about 500 slides during the week. The condo was very clean, modern and had everything we needed including beach chairs, snorkel equipment, and boogie boards. We cooked in, used the resort's BBQ, and went out for dinner at some of the casual local restaurants throughout the week. We loved having a Safeway grocery store across the street. There is a nice 4 mile paved path along the ocean that begins just north of the resort which is wonderful for running, walking or riding a bike (rentals nearby). The beach infront of the resort is very nice and sandy, but not good for swimming because of the strong current and large number of rocks in the water. Sunrises are wonderful from the beach! We would return to the Waipouli Beach Resort again next time we're in Kauai!
