We just completed a 9 night stay at Aulani and would come back anytime. The resort is amazing with the friendliest staff ever. A great 3 mile (round trip) walk/run on the paved walk between the hotel and the lagoon and a great exercise facility. Grounds are immaculate.
Dining options on property are not the best. AwaAwa has some excellent food but they're still figuring out how to seat people and will refuse to let you sit at an open table by the water and put you elsewhere even when asked directly. Food is pricey for what you get. If you have a car then leave the hotel (or walk to MonkeyPods across the street) and find local Hawaiian food which is fantastic.
The best thing we did was take the Hawaiian Food Tour (Hole in the Wall Tour) that isn't supported by Disney but was the highlight of our trip because not only did we have fun in the local parts of Honolulu but we also learned volumes of the local food scene.
The Olelo Room ended up being our favorite place on property. Live Hawaiian music starting at 5pm with a good happy hour food & drink menu. Cheese bread wasn't worth tasting but the fries, poke (ask for it raw vs seared) bowl, garlic fried, pork nachos, etc were fun and good. Sitting outside in the beautify Hawaiian evening can never be bad either. :)
The pools, slides, lagoon, etc. are all the best.
