“Room #312”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The location of this condo is fantastic. The condo is very outdated and dirty. The fridge leaked water and lamps did not work. We were not comfortable in this unit. We were very disappointed for what we paid for this. Thank goodness you spend most of your time outdoors.

We went to Kauai with a 2 and 3 year old, and expected to be booking into a resort (like Outrigger on the Reef in Fiji). Not quite.

This is a collection of what seems to be independently owned condos, so each condo can be quite different to others. The condo that we were booked into was pleasant and overlooked the grounds and beach.

Great proximity to a great bakery, cake store, and Mexican. Short walk to the markets (but they were dead, half closed when we were there) and fairly close to decent supermarkets.

However:-
1. The pool was not really great for kids of the age of ours
2. The beach was not great for surfing - once we were there, the pamphlets actually stated that the east coast of Kauai is blown out most of the time
3. Nice secluded beach, but an offshore sand bar with a deep channel and rip right on the beach. Not particularly safe for our kids.
4. No internet access. Whilst this is a blessing for many, my wife and I both run our own small businesses (no 2IC we can leave to sort problems), so it was not acceptable for us.

It would be a good place for others with other holiday needs (fewer demand?) than us.

First time in Kauai. We stayed at the Hyatt in Maui previously and this was much different. This is a condo not a hotel. Spacious and clean. Huge balcony with an ocean view. Great location and very nice swimmable beach. If you're looking for quiet and a little more privacy than the major hotel chains this is a great selection. A couple things to note. They only come clean your place once a week and empty trash. You do have the option to pay more if you want cleaning. Also the pool's across the street and kind of inconvenient. So if your not a beach person you may not like the pool.

We just came back from our very first vacation the Kauai, the Lae Nani gets a bad rap for sure....it is a lovely quiet place, with spectacular views and nice people that come and stay there year after year. If you are not expecting to be waited on hand and foot or upscale pricey rooms these are just like home, if you are an urban lover. I will definitely be staying here every time.

Room Tip: we stayed in 212 right next to the pool and a few feet from the ocean! great location

We have been returning to Kauai for over 40 years. We have stayed at several properties around the island. We find the location and beauty of Lae Nani is an outstanding value. Many TOP restaurants within a mile. The central location of Lae Nani for all island activities is ideal. You will need a car-but just relaxing next to the waves and the pool is enough.

Our condo #433 had a remarkable view of the grounds and surf. The condo was well maintained and quiet. The fans and louver windows allowed for plenty of ventilation. You could hear the surf all day and most predominantly when the island was quiet in the early hours of the day. A variety of birds and the native roosters would serenade you from dawn to dusk. If you forget to set your alarm, no worries, the roosters have that under control. The island lives up to it's reputation as the ' Garden Island '. This is our second Hawaiian adventure using Outrigger and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed with their locations, condos and staff. We are looking forward to future trip to the Big Island.

Room Tip: All the condos at Lae Nani seemed to have good view of the ocean. The upper floors were probably th...

This condo complex was built in the 70s, so no A/C in the rooms. We are staying in 324 and it has great ocean view indeed. The pool is good, easy access to the beach, sufficient free parking.

We have 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, small kitchen with dish washing machine, stove and microwave oven. The fridge is ok.

This is a lower class, budget oriented stay. They won't clean your room until after you leave, so should take good care of your place and keep your towels dry.

This is a 15 minute drive from Lihue airport, close to Kapaa town.

We are pleased after all!
