We originally booked a points stay at the JW Marriott but they decided to do renovations at the same time and moved our reservation to this resort. We were happy they did! We were upgraded to ocean view and the pools were far superior (which our 10 yr old daughter appreciated). Dining options are a bit on the expensive side but the food and service was excellent so we were ok with paying a premium. Lagoon and sunsets were also amazing.

We just got back from a week's stay there. The property is gorgeous, the beach and pools are amazing. You WILL need a car while you're there. We arrived on a Friday nite at 11pm and every eating establishment and market in Ko'Olina was closed. The front desk gal took us to the employee lounge to use their vending machine. It is baffling how you can run a luxury resort and not have one food option available to your guests who arrive late, not even a vending machine FOR guests! The restaurant closed at 8:45pm and the onsite market that sells a very small selection of absurdly-priced groceries closes at 10pm. After a 5 hour flight and another hour to get our bags and take a taxi to Ko'Olina plus the time change which meant we actually arrived at 2am our time, finding out there was no food to be had made us feel like we were suddenly on the show "Survivor". We were having trouble feeling the paradise!!

With that said, once we did get a car and had access to reasonably-priced necessities, this was truly a remarkable vacation experience. This side of the island seemed to have beautiful weather even when the areas closer to Honolulu and Waikiki were overcast and rainy. Ko'Olina is it's own little remote community and is perfect for unwinding away from the hustle and bustle of areas like Waikiki.

My advice would be to take an earlier flight, rent a car at the airport, and hit up the Costco which is only about 10 minutes away from Ko'Olina. Grab some good cuts of meat and grill them on the onsite BBQ's at the hotel. There are also kitchens in the units so you can save a lot on all your meals. The extra expense of the car rental is totally worth it to have access to nearby civilization. Get the car!!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad location, they're all beautiful and it's such a peaceful pa...

My wife and I took a day trip to this resort and we were very pleased with our brief experience. Now, we didn't stay overnight, but we did have a look in a couple of rooms. I just wanted to throw that out there because you could argue we didn't get the full experience. From what we saw, they were clean, well decorated, spacious, and had a kitchenette.

The best part: Honestly, and I going to sound like a kid here, THE WATER SLIDE was the best part. I don't want this to discount the rest of the resort because it was fantastic, but the water slide made the trip worth it.

The worst part: The FOOD and DRINKS WERE OVERPRICED. For example, a cheeseburger and fries was $17. Since this resort is meant for "staycationers," I would exercise a little caution here. If you are trying to do your vacation on a budget, I would use the kitchenette a few times.

Honorable mention: The lagoon and pools are beautiful. I believe there are three pools each with their own uniqueness, such as a grotto or cave in one. For the wave lovers out there, the lagoon is blocked off from the ocean so there are no waves to play in, but it is still a private lagoon.

My wife and I exchanged a week for the Ko Olina to celebrate our 25th. What a great selection! A top-notch resort with all the frills. The balcony was just right for 2 people who enjoy a wine & cheese dinner. Rooms are very spacious. Don't miss out on going down to the pool area and taking in the live music at the bar. The entertainment, lounge chairs, and sunset combo next to the bar was a perfect way to end each day.

The location of the resort is far away from the airport & Waikki. This could be good or bad depending on what you're looking for on your vacation. For us it was great as we like quite relaxing resort.

Most everything is within 30 - 40 minutes of driving though, even the North Shore. Main grocery stores are about a 5-10 minute drive. Try to avoid the freeways at rush-hour from 4:00 - 6:00pm...

Room Tip: The newer building has the best views, but you need to get above the 5th floor due to the palm trees...

We used Marriott destination points for an 11 day stay in a penthouse ocean view studio. Ok for a couple who are not into much in house cooking--otherwise get a larger unit with a full kitchen. It was fine for us as we enjoy trying restaurants while on Oahu. So we explored the restaurants on the western side of the island and I'll be reviewing some of those too. The Marriott folks know how to enhance your vacation experience and the four near perfect lagoons, the multitude of pools and hot tubs, good if expensive bars and restaurant, make it easy to just stay at the resort and enjoy it all. I recommend however if you have a rental car, explore the region and try some of the local dining options to augment a very friendly and luxurious resort experience.

Room Tip: Some ocean views are better than others. Check your room location carefully if this is important to...

Visited in October, 2012 as Interval exchange owners (no fee for parking 1 car if you're an exchange owner) with a family of four including two little girls (2 and 4) and three grandparents. Stayed in a 2BR/2BA, slept everyone comfortably. Pull-out beds left something to be desired, but A) they're pull-out beds and B) you're in Hawaii, who cares? Echo everything that all the previous reviews said about where to grocery/supply shop, what views to request, etc.. Some extra tips, especially for famillies with little kids:

-- There's not a lot of pantry/cabinet space in the kitchen so if you plan on stocking up on dry goods, be ready to spread 'em out on the counters. Otherwise the kitchen/dining areas were great. Pack light, then take 4-5 more things out of your suitcase...washer/dryer is great to have.

-- If you have little kids and plan on spending most of your time at the resort, DEFINITELY get a hold of the activity sheet ASAP. Among the things we did with our girls were Lei Making by the kiddie pool, painting a coconut shell/cup while they made smoothies to fill 'em up, fish feeding, Torch Lighting ceremony with native Hawaiians singing, drumming and climbing a coconut tree (actually got the kids involved in a dance or two) and Kariel the Mermaid ("K"ooler than Ariel) who shows up most Saturdays from 1-2:00. Look her up, it was my daughter's favorite part of the week.

-- If you plan on drinking lots at Longboard's, Happy Hour knocks a buck or so off the drink price. Buy the plastic, "refillable" cup early in the week. Refills aren't free, but they are a bit cheaper if you re-use the cup. Not sure but I think they may only be usable with the Frozen Mai Tais (will knock you on your butt) and Key Lime Coladas (not as strong, but freakin' delicious). Contrary to other reviews the food is good, $$ yes, but good. Kalua Pork Sandwich was a perfect lunch.

-- Never saw Pearl Harbor this time around, but I hear you should GET THERE EARLY as it's first come, first served, and will take a few hours. Leave the kids at home if you have the option.

-- Aulani Character Breakfast (only certain days): A blast with little kids and you can walk from the Marriott. Unfortunately you can't reserve a table unless you're a guest there, but do what they suggested we do. Call 24 hours before to see if they have an opening--call EARLY, EXACTLY 24 hours before because it fills up fast. They were "booked" when I called, so I requested to be put on the waiting list for all 7 of us. They called back within the hour and we had a table for 10:30...says it ends at 11:00, but the show goes well past, so don't worry if you get a late time. Mickey greets you and takes pics (for purchase later if you want), Goofy & Minnie spend time in the restaurant, they play music, have a few parades around the area, all in all a great time. The food is good with lots of choices...expensive to go here, but again, it's Hawaii people.

Only real downside was we never got to snorkel. The surf season kicks in this time of year, a big storm had just passed not too far away and the ocean waves were pretty rough the entire week. (Lagoons were fine as they're cordoned off a bit, but you couldn't see anything). Even heard they closed some of the north shore beaches early because the waves were so rough, so ask around if you plan on taking a day trip somewhere. Have fun!

Room Tip: We had the newer tower (Hale Naia), 9th floor, had views of the pool and the lagoon/ocean.

Hey everyone we stayed here for a family reunion, and had a wonderful stay. Stayed in a 2 bed villa, overlooking the marina area. Amazing rooms with tons of space for privacy. My only complaint was that the resort is very family oriented. Me being in my early 20's was quite bored at night because there wasnt much near by. But that didnt matter cause I spent 3 more days in Waikiki... and that made up for it. The resort has tons of pools, fitness room, sauna, steamroom, and has a Costco/Target about 5 minute drive away which saved us tons of money on food and groceries.
Best part about the resort were the lagoons that you can go snorkel in. While snorkeling on my last night there, I saw a green turtle swimming against the current. Pretty good way to end the stay.

Room Tip: Ask for Ocean view, amazing sunsets
