Hot at night
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The first night was great. But the next morning when we left the condo, we followed instructions to turn the air down and it was never the same after that. We made sure the doors were shut tight. It took about 2 hours for the rooms to get down to a comfortable temp and every night we slept with no covers on because it was too hot. Seems like the air needs to be checked. We were afraid to leave our sliders open even for a little bit becuse it took so long to get the rooms back to a comfortable temp. Also, I see no reason that the kids can't use a kid-sized floaty ring in the pool and I even saw a man sipping a soda at 10 in the morning get reprimanded and told to take his beverage out. The pool was too strict this time making it kid and family-unfriendly. Also, it would be nice if the landscapers with their mowers and blowers could work around the pool hours. We used the pool exactly 1x during our stay. :(

Thank you for your feedback as it assists us with knowing how to improve our services. I have forwarded your comments to the General Manager of Waipouli Beach Resort and this is his reply:
"Aloha and thanks for forwarding the review!
Many times we learn more from criticism than from praise, although I have to disagree with this guest on the pool rules and landscapers. We actually get more complaints when rules are not enforced than when they are - see TripAdvisor's 732 reviews. And the suggestion about having the landscapers "work around" the pool hours simply wouldn't work. Our pool is open from 7 am to 10 pm 7 days per week. Is the guest suggesting that we run the blowers before 7 am or after 10 pm? If we were to do that, the complaints would be unimaginable. (Per my direction, they are not allowed to operate power equipment before 9 am.) The guest has a point about the AC unit, but it isn't anything mechanical. The past couple weeks have been incredibly hot and humid. The amount of cooling capacity required to reduce humidity from 95% down to the 60% range is enormous. That's what happens everytime lanai doors are opened and then closed again. It literally takes hours to dehumidify and cool from 79-80 degrees down to 72-74 degrees this tim
