Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
- What's Included
Great place to visit. Beautiful ocean, property, pool, programs. Kids enjoyed the activities. The programs are great if you're kids are little or teens. Pre-teens felt left out. I loved the paddle board yoga class. We also tried boot camp. Running trail is not great. It's just a walkway connecting the hotels; concrete and unshaded. The movies and games room is a great place to find family bonding resources. We had a chance to play board games and enjoy family time. Pool chairs usage arrangements were terrible. I was exhausted trying to get chairs for the family. Start by running around the pool in search of empty chairs at 8am... or earlier. If lucky, you might find two chairs next to each other under an umbrella. Shade is not abundant. I had to wait in line at Auntie's house before 7am to sign up for kids activities that are often sold out. All the activities require you to get up at the crack of dawn. Don't try to sleep in, because there's a daily wake up chant broadcasted throughout the pool area. Next time, we plan to forgo the ocean / pool view room and get something not facing the pool, for some peace and quiet. I go there to rest, not wake up at crack of dawn to go to work.
Cast member are GREAT! Room was really good and the whole hotel was fun and easy to navigate. They understood my food allergies and had a chief come talk to me about what was safe and what to avoid. Make reservations for the day trips early and check out Auntie's house for kids so you can do day trips. The spa staff was excellent!
Aulani being a Disney resort is expensive but if you have little kids it's well worth it. If your kids are over 9 or 10, I'd save the extra you pay for souvenirs and stay at another place. The lagoons(there's more than 1) are small and not much to see however the pools and slides are well worth the price if you have small kids. First thing you should do is get the refillable mugs. Pay once and use the mugs the entire time to at least save on drinks. The food is expensive but very good quality. The shopping center across the street has a market and other restaurants for variety. Overall i'd rate a 4 if you have young ones.
We loved our stay! We loved seeing the characters with the short lines! The pools were perfect for our kids (5 & 3). The beach was perfect. They really have perfected our Hawaiian experience for families A couple complaints:The chairs by the pool were nearly impossible to get. People would have 4-6 loungers saved and one person sitting. Something needs to be done about it. House keeping was very inconsistent. Nap time for our 3 month old was hard to take in the room because we never knew when they were coming. One day it was at 5 pm the next day it was at 9am. We didn't even shower in that time. Overall we enjoyed our stay. AMA AMA was fantastic. The breakfast buffet was great as well. I wish they would change out the food though so that it was a little different each time you want. We will be going back!
Beautifully located at the Hawaii Oahu Island. Lots of activities for family fun. Many activities for children with daily activities from a daily itenerary from the front desk. Included is a beach front to swim in with lots of chairs on the sand to enjoy. The weather is fantastic here! The food can be costly but they have deals on refillable drinks. There is a small shopping area with a pizza restaurant walking distance from the resort. Included is the famous Fashionable Ko Olina Monkeypod Station eatery with sustainable Hawaiian food plus a patio & happy-hour scene.Live music · Happy hour drinks · Great cocktails
