We were SO sad to see the Outrigger Keauhou close. We had to find a new location so trusting the Outrigger brand and knowing the general location of this hotel we got reservations here. These are condos. The setup is a little strange because it's one large building, but there are two check-in desks, two different owner/operators. Part of it is owned by a vacation plan and the rest is operated by Outrigger. The Outrigger units are owned by individuals and managed by Outrigger hotel group. They are scattered throughout the building. The building is built on a hill. The top floor (5) is at street level and level 1 is near the ocean. There are only 2 or 3 levels to the structure, so it is in steps down the hill. The structure has 2 sides with a garden in the middle and walkways and bridges connecting the two sides. There are "wings" extending from the main building on both sides and there is parking under the main building and outside near the units that are located in the "wings" - very convenient to those units. We were in a 1 bedroom unit with a garden view, in a wing on the 3rd level. We thought it was a very nice place to stay. They have 2 pool areas - one much larger than the other. Neither of them have great views although they are near the ocean. There are plenty of chaise lounges and some chairs and tables. Not much shade. There are restrooms close at hand which is nice. The unit we had was nicely furnished. We had some problem figuring out the light switches. When we checked out we mentioned that - some of the light globes may have been burned out. We didn't make a fuss about it because we could get by with the lights that worked. Our unit was quiet. The bed was very comfortable. We were there at a slow time (the end of November) so I think the place was not very occupied. The hotel has an entrance area that is open to all, but the rest is "gated" and you have to open a gate with your key. We like that because there weren't "extra" people there and it made the place more secure. It's NOT anything even close to our old favorite hotel down the coast as far as grounds and views, but it was nice, and we enjoyed the extra room that the condo provided. We will stay there again. It was reasonably priced, quiet, and very clean.
We like the unit in the "wing" because the parking was so close and it was very quiet.

Thank you so much for your extensive description of the property. I can certainly agree with you that we all miss the Outrigger Keauhou Beach Hotel - it had such a Hawaiiana spirit and we were all sad to see her "shut down," but it has allowed us to showcase some of the features of staying in a condo versus a hotel room. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you back.
