My husband and I got back from a FABULOUS 9 nights at the Ihilani. We arrived to be informed we had been upgraded to an oceanview room, which was excellent and unexpected. We slept with the lanai doors open every night! The staff was constantly attentive and very very friendly, we especially loved the valet...Abe in particular. There were plenty of activities at the resort (ukulele lessons, lahaula weaving etc.), we explored all 4 lagoons (*a must do if you want to avoid the influx of families on Friday and Saturday), the restaurants at the resort were overall "good" if not a bit expensive, though Ray's was outstanding. The property itself was stunning and vast. We kept joking that Ko Olina must mean "nice digs" in Hawaiian. The spa was nice, though not your Canyon Ranch, though I was dissapointed to learn that the mens spa had a cold dip pool whereas the womens did not!
Overall fabulous, glad even though they did have timeshares we never felt pressured...nothing can ruin a vacation like a semi-constant sales pitch!
Just great!...we even toured the island and took a look at Turtle Bay, my husband turned to me and said "I'm so glad we are staying where we are staying", that I think speaks volumes.
Also fantastic as we were only 20 minutes from the oppresive swarm of Waikiki...and to think we could have stayed with 40,000 screaming kids for the same price!
