The Entrance and Lobby are very boring in design and color, including Cast Members outfits. We were greeted with a Lei and offered refreshing water. It was a little disconcerting when you are trying to gather your party together and a cast member starts describing the interior like I was on a tour. I just wanted to get to the... More

Our kids had a blast. Everything was perfect for them. The pools, the beach, snorkeling in the tropical fish pool, the kids club, the entertainment, the treasure hunts with the rented ipads, etc. Everything is kept in tip top shape and there are plenty of life guards making sure everyone is safe in the pools. The only thing we didn't... More

We stayed at Aluani the week of July 14th 2014. We are DVC members using Bay Lake Tower as our home base. I like Disney but am not one of those people who feels Disney can do no wrong. After reading several reviews from different sites I did lower my expectations. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to find the... More

Our family stayed here after cruising with NCL. Everything is perfect. Pools, restaurants and rooms. Our family loved everything. The private beach is stunning. Best part are the Disney characters running around. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful...A must do for everyone!!!

Great grounds and pool in the best area on Oahu. As can be expected with Disney kids everywhere but they were more well behaved than in Orlando. The lobby was noisy and crowded beyond belief and detracted from the experience but it was a design flaw to have two humungous towers have to transit a small lobby to get anywhere.... More

We stayed at Aulani the week of Jul 4th. We were going on a cruise the 5th. The place is a zoo. It is way to small for the number of rooms that it has. Unless you get to a chair by the pool by 7:30 you are out of luck. The kids club is a joke. All the kids... More

This is a very lovely, well thought out hotel suitable for both families and couples set in a very quiet part of Oahu well away from the craziness of Waikiki. Service is not quite as efficient in some areas(Housekeeping) as other Disney hotels but you soon learn this is the way it is in Hawaii and it is very easy... More

My expectation for this resort was that it was a luxurious resort get away but instead I'm getting a typical Disney theme park - overpriced and overcrowded (we're here at the end of July). Its a nice hotel in a great location but the experience is completely lacking and is disappointing considering the cost of the trip. - The hotel... More

We took our family of 5 to Aulani in May of 2014, right AFTER spring break. We actually split the trip between TWO resorts- Aulani in Kapolei and Turtle Bay on the North Shore. If you are looking for a more AUTHENTIC experience, we LOVED Turtle Bay. The waves of the ocean crash right up against the hotel property, and... More

It is a beautiful hotel, with many attractions for Kids. Great for families with young kids. Lots of activities every day and you can see the characters almost everywhere. VERY crowded though. We were there in summer so maybe in other season would be less crowded. Beautiful beach and very safe for kids.
