Pali Ke Kua or Hanalei Bay Resort?

Hi! We are a multi-generational family of six planning a trip to the North Shore this August. Can anyone tell me whether Pali Ke Kua or Hanalei Bay Resort has the better (easier) beach access? Also, when you do get down to the beach, which has better snorkeling? Views? Which is better for small children?

Thank you for any and all comments!

<<HBR is a huge resort. disney like>>

It is far from Disneylike though the acreage is a bit larger than at PPK. It is 22 acres but most of that is bluff and jungle area surrounding the units. There are no waterslides or playgrounds, not even Mickey Mouse comes out to greet you.

Here are some aerial shots to compare.

Hi again! Thank you all for your insight and suggestions. Since we have two very small children, we have decided to book a condo at HBR. It looks like either way, we are in for quite a lovely treat! Your help has been greatly appreciated!
