Just got back from 8 nights in an oceanfront condo (A204) at the Waipouli Resort and it was an awesome experience all around. The location of the Waipouli is perfect for adventures around Kauai--Kapaa is centrally located--or just grocery shopping--Safeway shopping center is across the street. The grounds of the Waipouli are really nice. The pool is beautiful and fun to play around in; my husband and I had a great time on the water slides! The gym is fine, a little humid and strangely shaped, but perfectly good for working out. The resort is right on the beach, but, as others have pointed out, it is not a swimming beach because of the reef. There is still plenty of area to bob around and enjoy the water, though. The only subpar thing about the Waipouli is the Oasis restaurant--too expensive for what you get, but it's in a good location beachside. There is a bbq/cooking building by the pool which apparently used to be for pool customers and a couple, who have been coming to the resort since it opened, told us it was perfect for getting good food poolside. The restaurants original owners closed it, and the Waipouli took over and used the bbq place to make the food. Not successful. I hope they do more with this place in the future; it would be nice to have good affordable food on-site, including breakfast!
The condo itself was beautiful and super well-appointed with all the amenities you could want. We especially appreciated the separation of the two master suites; we were traveling with our daughter and her new husband and it was nice to have the common living area and kitchen between our rooms. Each bedroom has a large spa-like bathroom and lanai, and we totally enjoyed just hanging out in our rooms, while the living room was large enough--with fantastic view--to all spend time there together.
I can't say enough about the Waipouli staff. They were friendly, considerate and informative, and went above and beyond: when we needed to get into the "owners office" after hours to check in with our airline and print boarding passes, security kindly unlocked the doors and let use the office...thanks you guys!
All in all, we would recommend the Waipouli Resort without question.
