Our stay at Aulani was the second island on the vacation. We stayed the first part at the Sheraton on Maui, which we found fantastic. We meet other members of our family in Oahu, so we were twelve people between a two bedroom villa and a traditional hotel room. Many of the people were what I would consider Disney fanatics,... More

The Makahiki buffet has come a long way and is a really good place to dine with a multitude of selections. The other areas on property however, need to spice up their menu. Ulu Cafe's food quality is so-so at best, and the menu's been the same for a long time. The only other place we enjoyed was Mama's Snack... More

We visited Aulani as a family in August. We started off bad but really came to love it by the end of the stay. I will try to go through the things that were important to us researching the place before hand and during the trip. Accommodations: we stayed in the one bedroom vacation club suite. this is where our... More

This hotel is very nice but very busy. I felt like I was in Las Vegas. Hard to find chair by pool or ocean. The crowds was my only complaint. Employees were very nice and pleasant. Rooms are very clean and decorated very well. My only advice is that you are hoping a relaxing time this might not be the... More

We went to Aulani during mid-winter break with, it seemed, the whole west coast of the US mainland. For a few days at the beginning of the week, you had to be super early to not wait in line for breakfast or get a coveted pool spot, but other then that, the staff, facilities and amenities were great. This being... More

My family of four including two teens, 13 and 15 stayed for 3 nights this August. It was the third out of four hotels we went to while in Hawaii. We were very excited to book this hotel and actually arrive! Check-in was a breeze! Great concierge and no problems, loved the leis! Our one bedroom villa was great! Room... More

My husband and I stayed here during our trip to Oahu to avoid the "busy-ness" of Waikiki, and because we are DVC members. Aulani is beautiful. The pools are very crowded, but we never had trouble finding chairs on the beautiful beach. They also have 18+ pools and hottubs, which is nice, because we don't have children. Speaking of children,... More

We are locals and went with a large group of friends (with kids) for a short summer staycation. We had dined there before, but this was our first hotel stay there. We had a great time and Disney did not disappoint. Of course it was crowded, but the amenities and service were excellent. The kids had a blast in the... More

My husband and I brought our 2 1/2 year old son here in May 2014 for a 4 night stay. We had no problems with crowds during the week. It did get more crowded on our last day which was the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. Although we were disappointed our son was too young to fully use Auntie's Beach... More
