Just got home yesterday (sigh) from another week spent at the Ko'Olina Beach Club. Love it! The grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. The rooms are just beautiful and, as usual with Marriott, you can't hear anything from the surrounding rooms. I don't know how they have those rooms insulated, but you feel like you are in your own home! We own a Penthouse room at this resort, so we were on the 16th floor of the new building. Simply beautiful. The one thing that I noticed is the relaxed pace that everything moves at. We also own in Aruba, and the HUGE difference, for those who know Aruba, is that at the Ko'Olina, you don't need to wake up at 5:30 AM to go down and reserve your pool chairs! Even during President's Week, we would go down to the pool at 8:00 or even later, and there were plenty of chairs! Not sure if it's because the resort is so spread out, or if there's just more to do and see on the Island that not many people spend their time by the pool...whatever the reason, it's NICE! One of the waiters by the pool said that they were at 100% capacity, but boy it didn't feel like it. The resort area is about 30 - 40 minutes away from Waikiki/Honolulu, so it's close enough to get to if you want, but also far enough away to be away from all the hustle and bustle. It's truly paradise! We spent most of our time at the pool and not the beach because in February, the Pacific is COLD!! The pool water was just so nice comfortable.
They've also built up the resort area a little more, so across the street from the J.W. is a new shopping center with a few restaurants, an ice cream shop, and some stores, so if you need anything, you don't need to go out of your way to get it. Also, about a 5 minute drive away is Costco, Target, Walmart, Safeway...anything you'd need. Good idea to get there and do some shopping at the Safeway or wherever you like, to stock up your kitchen. There are grills on the property as well, so you don't have to dine out each night if you don't want to. We grilled 2 nights that we were there, and the grills overlook the beach, so you see a beautiful sunset while you are cooking dinner. Miss it already!!
