We celebrated our anniversary here with our two kids and all I can say is WOW! I did not want to leave. It was everything I had dreamed and imagined. When we first walked into the A frame lobby area it literally took my breath away. The breeze coming off the water through that area along with the beautiful scene... More

Aulani from start to finish is an incredible experience. Upon arrival you are welcome with floral leis and beads for men. Kids also get their own necklace. The resort is incredibly well designed and it is clear that the ownership took great care in selecting quality furnishing and building materials throughout the resort. The walls are thick so you do... More

Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of Disney and thier customer service. But after spending a week on Maui at the Grand Wailea and 6 nights at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, I find that the other two resorts fit our family better. My tween and teen were bored. The kids programs are geared toward... More

I love this resort. It is beautiful, magical and majestic. When you arrive, you are greeted by Disney Cast Members with a friendly smile, genuine hospitality and Hawaiian leis. Then, they hand you pineapple water and show your the lobby. When you enter the resort it is apparent that they have put much detail into all aspects of the hotel.... More

You can't go wrong in combining Hawaii, Sun and Fun activities and The Aulani is great. The grandkids loved Aunty's Beach House, the slides and the kid only Bridge play area. The adults loved the Spa and quick service of drinks by the pool and of course the pools. The down side; not enough lounge chairs; slippery and hot surface... More

Great place for kids. Tons of activities during the day. Snorkeling in the lagoon is very good, though the beach to the right of the Disney lagoon is better. Rainbow reef is full of kids and parents who have no business being in the water. Makahiki restaurant is a buffet with plenty of selection, but is quite pricey for either... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Aulani in a 2 bedroom villa. The first half of our trip was spent at the Marriott villas down the road. Wow, this place is incredible. From the moment they open your car door and welcome you with a fresh lei (for the women) kukui necklaces for the guys and little totem... More

And we've stayed at pretty much all of them. We are a family of 5 - stayed in a 1-BR villa through DVC. Our stay was March 2013 (although indicated here as 2014, more because I forgot to review ealrier). I'm sure all other reviews have commented on the positives: pool, water area, service, rooms. I won't spend much more... More

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
