If one is looking for Disney esk type ( with a lot of mickey, Disney tunes ) resort, this is not it. If one is looking for a Waikiki resort this is not it! If you are looking for a resort tailored to families, with beautiful grounds, architecture , stunning views this place is awesome!
We stayed in a grand villa , with friends ( 8 of us) ,
The rooms were excellent , although a bit smaller than the rest of the DVC properties. The architecture was very well thought out and I recommend taking the free tour as it explains the artwork and the Hawaiian culture, art and materials … as expected Disney did it right.
The pools and water features were again what one would expect from a high end Disney resort , lush landscaping , awesome views and scenes for taking Pics.
We did not have any problem getting seats / lounges although id one wants to sit right near the pool I would expect those go fast.
If one want some great views of the ocean, lagoon, and swaying palms I would go to the right or left of the pool and you will find great seats, open space and away from the crowds.. simply stunning
The only negative , the lazy river tubes where had to come by as people saved them back at their seats ( Disney needs to do better here)
The food.. it’s a bit pricey and I would stay away from the buffet , we found it to be average at best and for the money well its not worth it.
Ama Ama the resorts other restaurant was again pricey but very well worth it! Very good views and excellent menu.
There are a couple of fast food /pool service eateries ( off the hook, one paddle two paddle) great pool food and fair pricing for Hawaii
We spent seven day here and just booked it for early next year
