This is my personal paradise. I have timeshare here which I can swap out to other destinations. I also live on the US east coast, so it’s a long journey to get here. None the less, my wife and I choose to come here most years and usually stay for 2 weeks. On site, there are three pool areas: a ‘sports pool’ area where, for example, you can play water volley ball; a ‘fun’ area with tunnels and waterfalls; and a ‘reflection’ area where they ask people to be quiet. The Marriott facility is build beside a lagoon with beautiful soft sand which provides safe swimming in Pacific water. There is an on-site bar and grill called Longboard, which also runs a tikki bar in the fun pool area. Other local dining includes Roy’s and a Mexican restaurant, and several restaurants in the nearby JW Marriott Ihilani, of which our favorite is Azul’s. These are all served by a shuttle bus that runs constantly through the day and evening.
Also scattered round the site are plenty of bar-b-que pits, which provide an economic alternative to eating out or cooking in your room. I like using these bar-b-ques as I meet all sorts of interesting people there from different parts of the US and other countries.
All the staff are very friendly, helpful and give the impression that they love working there, and that is part of the appeal of the place. Despite the fact that is a large facility with a lot of people there, it is never crowded, and you are made to feel that you are special.
I have just returned from a 2 week stay where we hosted my son’s ‘destination’ wedding, and had an absolutely wonderful time. We accommodated a total of eight people, 5 of whom had never been to Hawaii before; it was an international group that came from as far away as Ukraine, Moscow and London. All of them thoroughly enjoyed their stay and had a wonderful time. For the wedding, we used the services of Cathy, the local wedding planner (not sure if she actually works for Marriott) who did an excellent job, and located the service on an idyllic site on a grass lawn overlooking the lagoon, just before sunset.
I’ve saved the best to last, those sunsets. The resort faces west looking over the lagoon to the open ocean, and every evening there is a beautiful sunset. As the sun goes down, the sky lights up with reds, oranges and yellows. I can think of nothing better than sitting with good friends, mai-tai in hand, watching the sun go down at Ko’Olina.
