Napili Shores Maui by Outrigger
Ranked #19 of 32 Hotels in Lahaina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2012

THE LOCATION:
If you are familiar with Maui and have stayed before you know all this, but the Outrigger is about a 15 minute drive south to Lahaina and all the restaurants and shops. It is a short walk to Napili Bay which doesn't have a good beach for lounging, but it is good for swimming. Kapalua Bay is 5 minutes drive North and is great for families and snorkeling! The Outrigger is 5 minutes drive from Napili plaza and market- but buy all your groceries at Costco close to airport when you arrive, otherwise you will be blown away by cost! One downside of this location is there are NO sidewalks around resorts, so going out for a morning stroll or after dinner is a bit dangerous- definitely not good for walking the stroller or with small children.
THE RESORT:
The grounds of this condo resort are very well manicured, with two pools and a jacuzzi. We stayed in Garden View Condo unit #134. So this review reflects just that condo, all are owned separately and can be varying quality. Even though it was close to the onsite restaurant, it was still very quiet. I can imagine the units closest to the Gazebo (nearest the ocean) could be a little noisy in the morning as that restaurant always had a line starting at 7 am! It was updated and modern, King size bed, flat screen TV, granite counter tops in kitchenette and bathroom, large closet in bathroom. As two people we were very comfortable in this space. The kitchenette was well equip with full size refrigerator which was great for us because we cooked almost all of our meals in condo., blender, toaster, etc. Except the two pans are TERRIBLE (too small and definitely not none stick anymore), no tupperwear present for packing lunches, so buy some or bring sandwich bags and freezer bags for food and left over storage. I would recommend this to a friend! But next time we will stay more south and in a better walking environment. We were always in the car!

Room Tip: second floor would be less noisy! Garden view away from Gazebo is also better, too noisy in am if yo...

This was the second time we've stayed at Napili Shores and both trips were great. We had a garden facing room this time but could still hear the ocean waves at night. We were located on the north side and didn't notice any undue noise before the 'quiet hours' were over at 8am. At night, I don't think I've experienced a more quiet location-it is very mellow and laid back and it seems most folks return to the resort in the early evening, so few car noises were heard. It appears that the Gazebo wholesale deliveries are in the afternoon to avoid both the restaurant crowds and disturbing guests on that side of the resort. The one bedroom condo, managed by Outrigger, was clean, well furnished and well equipped for a long stay. The new restaurant, Cafe Au Lait, is average and a bit pricey, but a real plus for tired travelers at the end of the day. This is an excellent resort for many reasons. I have to say that I find the concerns about treatment of 'children in the hot tub' overstated, as this is the policy in all the resorts I've ever known. The parents who 'violated' that policy during our stay were the only rude, loud folks we encountered on the entire trip to Maui.

We had an okay time at Nalipi Shores. The property is nice, however there were a few problems with it. The first is the noise, as isulation between the bedroom walls and the parking lot was minimal. This wouldn't have been so bad, except that there was a significant amount of traffic going through the parking lot to get to the restaurant. Second, the lower pool is not heated, so it is basically useless. The upper pool is nice, however, if you have kids, be prepared for some serious stares from the older people. Also - KIDS NOT ALLOWED IN HOT TUB!!! Very disapointing, as Napili is more windy than the rest of Maui, and it is nice for the kids to warm up. The beach was nice, however I would not recommend it for small children in the winter, as the waves are large, and break right on shore.

Room Tip: I would pick something south facing

Ninety of the units at Napili Shores are managed by Outrigger. Those units underwent a complete renovation in 2006 with new appliances, granite counter tops, carpeting, furniture, and flat screen TV's.

Children 5 or over are now allowed to use the hot tub under adult supervision.

Napili Shores is ideal if you want a mellow, lovely Hawaiian vacation. The rooms/studios vary, so try to find photos of specific units. The pools are never overcrowded, the turtles are always visible, the view is as calming as the breeze. You can swim, walk, snorkel, shop, get a massage nearby, sun bathe, explore tidepools, and more without every using a car!

Room Tip: Rooms in the A,B,C buildings are more ocean view/more expensive, but all buildings are nice!

Have just returned from this resort where we stayed for 3 weeks in total.. No a/c is right and yes the wind does blow through but not quite enough for me, so luckily i had asked for a fan and did use it at night..Watch out for the bread delivery guy at 5;30 in the morning,, just on the one side,,people parking early for the famous Gazabo restraunt, locking there cars and slamming doors..Trying to get there early for 7'30 opening,,As the other review says, kids are okay, it's the parents who can't control them. The barbecues were great to have, they do clean them well and the grounds were kept great. Gal at the front desk was a little iffy,, not a great first impression.. But it was a great place to head out from to go do the sight seeing........Definately need a car,,or I noticed the bus stopped right outside the resort,, A little to expensive for eating out etc and will not head back to Maui any time soon.........
