A Family Favorite

Los Angeles

Everytime my family travels to Hawaii, regardless of the island, I am coerced into staying at least a couple nights at the Aulani on Oahu. While filled with Disney's not overdone. It's ridiculously expensive and they nickel & dime you in every way possible BUT in the end, it's worth it. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. We love the restaurants...especially Ama Ama - the upscale restaurant with breathtaking views and delicious food. When it's not overcrowded, the pools, lazy river & beach are great. I'm really glad they added a new policy since our last visit which gives people an hour away from their chairs before a staff member collects their belongings and frees up those chairs for others. It used to be the early risers would throw down their stuff & towels on a group of chairs, disappear for hours just to hold the chairs for the entire day leaving those who like to sleep in a bit on their vacation s.o.l.. You spend too much money at this resort not to be able to find pool chairs. The rooms are decent size with many options to choose from. Nicely appointed and well thought out design...which I find rare even in nice hotels. My kids love it here as does my I'm a happy camper. Ko'olina is a beautiful part of the island and the sunsets are fantastic. You can stay at the 4 Seasons next door for roughly the same amount of money, but this place is a special experience.
