“Wonderful from beginning to end!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

My 13 year old son and I just got back from such a wonderful stay at Kapilana!!! We arrived to the most cheerful host Karen--our room was cold and AC worked great. The views and the hospitality was exactly what I wanted for our trip across the US!!! I made my reservation via the phone and Karen was able to accomodate our stay date. We came back to the check in to get directions---she gave us directions to the Bryant Auction House from the TV Show "SOLD", as well as a map and marked it so we could find our way around--as I have no sense of direction. I can't wait to go back and stay for several days so I can really see all of Lake Osage. Kapilana will be the only place I'd stay! Thanks for a great visit!!!

Room Tip: We got a ground floor room and the views were as good as the upper levels with less stairs:-) All t...

Just completed our annual family vacation at Kapilana Resort. Excellent value and location, Great Pool, boat docks are secluded from the main channel. Nice views from the balcony. Great location both by water and by land. Condos are A+, Pool side appartments are B, but save you some money and if you are like us are only there to sleep! Would certainly recommend, If you have questions, give them a call as they are nice hosts and friendly to talk to! Much of the facility also has Wi-Fi coverage.

I paid for 1 full week, the cost was a little over 1200 dollars. I tripped over 1 of the many screws sticking up out of the other decks, resulting in my arms going through a window I had a severe laceration on my left bicep, and they provide me with absolutely 0 first aid. they couldn't offer me a bandage no neosporin no nothing, I ended up with 13 stitches in my arm plus they ask me to leave after the second day and did not refind any of my money, I would never ever in 1,000,000 yearS for this condominium complex to anybody that wants to have a good time at the lake of the ozarkS, save your time and money and go somewhere else

Our family has stayed at Kapilana for the last 15 years at least. We have had many nice times there. The condos are nice. A few years ago I would have rated this place excellent, mainly due to the hosts, the Hull's. They just made everyone feel right at home. A few years ago this resort changed hands. The new owners , sad to say, are not near as friendly as the former ones. They seem more interested in the "business" than making people feel at home and wanting to return. Not saying that we would never return but this year will be trying another resort.

Room Tip: We like either the walk-in parking lot level or the level closest to the water.

We enjoyed our 3-night stay in a 2-bedroom suite/condo. It had a full kitchen and laundry, was clean and spacious. Being there in HOT June we didn't use the gas fireplace, but it was lovely. There are boat docks if you bring a boat, and a good-size balcony to enjoy the view of the quieter end of the Lake. There is a roped off area for swimming in the lake, and a nice sparkling pool. Only drawbacks - the sofa bed was extremely "boney" and uncomfortable, and you have to tote your garbage to the dumpster at the end of your stay. No online reservations, you have to call; but then you get to talk to the charming host! They will ask how many are traveling and recommend a room or suite/condo. Wonderful hosts and a resort stay that is a throw-back to the old days, we enjoyed it and will stay there again.

took a 3 night vacation with my husband and my 2 nieces, 16 & 13 years. We had so much fun the whole time. We spent about 90% of our time there in the awesome pool! We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom poolside apartments. It was so affordable and very nice! Management and staff were really nice and friendly! The overall feel of the resort was home! The other guests were like friends and family. The resort was close to everything but a bit off the beaten path, so it was quiet and relaxing! We will be back next summer and we'll be bringing the rest of our family! Can't wait to go back !

Room Tip: The only thing I have to mention that was a problem was that our room didn't have an oven, only...
