Marriott ko olina beach club OR JW Marriott ihilini

We a a childless couple looking to use points for one of these properties in April. We prefer something relaxing, a bit quieter. We will have a car so we can travel to restaurants, but nice pool, bars etc would be good. We have never been to Hawaii and will be staying 4 nights or so before a cruise.

Both places are exactly the same number of Marriott reward points to book. Obviously, JW is more expensive, so one would think it would be the best choice, but reviews online seem to favor the ko olina.

If money isn't a factor (because we are using points) where would you stay? Thanks.

We are owners at the Beach Club and have also stayed at the JW. We love the beach club but for what you will get in room size, the JW is much better than the beach club.

Unless you are planning to get a one room villa at the Beach Club, room for room (studio at Beach Villas) the JW will be a better choice. The JW is definitely less family oriented where if you hit Ko Olina around Easter the Beach Villas will have lots of kids. The lagoon in front of the JW may be more busy now with the new Disney Resort being open (Aulani and JW are side by side).
