“Great location on Oahu”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Stayed here 6 nights in early January on business. I'm not a beach club member but am a Marriott Gold. Had a small but nicely appointed room with no ocean view. For the time of year it was fine since it was dark by 6 PM. My whole experience was good except for parking. The desk staff did not want to give me a parking pass but make me use valet parking due to lack of space. I told them that I had no problem with finding a space. I just didnt like being told something that was not true. Otherwise, housekeeping staff was very good and grounds and facility are very nice. This was my 3rd trip to Kapolei in the past 8 months and had stated at the Ihalani before. The beach club has a definite difference in atmosphere.

Stayed here three nights in a two bedroom unit (Naia Tower) with four adults and one baby. I have stayed in numerous high-end Hawaii properties (including Four Seasons Maui, Four Seasons Manele Bay/Lanai and Fairmont Orchid), and this resort does it right! I knew the reviews were good, but I still thought this would be our "temporary" place to stay before we headed to our "real" vacation on the Big Island. Boy, was I wrong!

I won't go into the details that are covered in numerous previous posts, but here are a few highlights:
- Villa was extremely well equipped, especially with the things that typically "add on" to a vacation like this, such as laundry detergent and a dish soap + sponge
- QUICKLY delivered pack-n-play and highchair, as well as a bath toy for our 1 year old (I hate having to wait upwards of an hour for the baby bed to arrive...this was a pleasant surprise)
- Beach, while man-made, is beautiful; sunsets are fantastic on this side of the island
- Pools are numerous, and offer a little bit of everything. Our one year old particularly liked the lagoon pool that had a beach entry with sand
- Staff was extremely friendly and helpful
- Valet and self-parking was the same price, so we went the valet route; never had to wait more than 3-4 minutes for our car
- I prioritized a high floor, and we ended up on the 8th floor, with a partial ocean view facing the bay and Lagoon 4 (parking garage was also in the view, but being that high up, it didn't matter). We were right next to the elevator, which was fine with us. (Note - white noise machines or apps are great for travel!)
- Tons of resort activities for all interests
- Nice path that winds around the Lagoons in front of all nearby resorts
- Grounds are impeccably maintained
- Villa was extremely clean, even for this germaphobe!

The only potential negative is that we didn't find the on-property and nearby dining to provide as many high-end options as we are accustomed to. However, it was more than adequate, and I have a feeling this area is about to explode with options soon enough.

We can't wait to return when our daughter is a bit older and can enjoy even more of this wonderful property! :-)

Room Tip: Prioritize a high floor so you have a good view from wherever you are located.

This property is very nice and I would return, largely because they have dedicated swim lanes available between 7 to 10 am. The rooms are spacious, quite comfortable, and everyone is very nice and helpful. The location is excellent and it's easy to walk up and down the beach, go jogging, etc. I highly recommend the Ko Olina area. Don't miss using the public parking lot to visit Paradise Cove. But I think the degree to which you'll enjoy your stay depends in part on where you stay in the complex. Just read the other reviews for tips on which rooms to request. I'm noise-sensitive, and all the front ocean-view rooms also overlook the pools and restaurants, all of which play music all day. Not terrible, mind you, but loud enough to be distracting while sitting out on your lanai. if you want a quieter room, ask for the Moana tower, or even consider a room on the back side of one of the buildings high enough to be clear of the parking lots.

Room Tip: We had an ocean-view room in Moana tower. Nice room, but the lanai didn't get sun till after 2...

We wanted to relax on this vacation in paradise. This was exactly the place needed.... The room we were given had an ocean view on the 8th floor of the Hale Moana. Since it was the two of us, we had the studio, which included a partial kitchen/aka no stove. But with the easy access to numerous BBQ grills, it was no problem. Kapolei, being minutes away, enabled us to access food-be it fast or a sit down meal. This beach club is highly recommended for the vacationers wanting to be away from crowds but not too far away from accessing it if need be. This was a vacation in paradise at a Marriott that could not be any better for us.

This is truly an amazing property. The pools are spectacular and the lagoons are a blast. We had a 2 bedroom oceanfront villa that was perfect for 4 adults and 2 kids. The property is an easy drive from everything but traffic can make it feel much worse. This is a great escape from Waikiki. Great staff and very clean property. Never had an issue with Internet. One point to clarify from other reviews that say you can see whales from your balcony. You can see whales "spraying" and sometimes a back or tail but not as good of a view as a tour. Still very fun to watch. Tina at the conceriege desk is the best!

Very nice, upgraded, view, beach lovely. Downside-conventioneers very loud every afternoon ,so sitting by pool or on balcony not as nice as it could be. Would rather have children or teenagers. I guess these people don't get out much.

The Ko Olina is a very upscale Marriott timeshare. The rooms are very well appointed and the amenities are in excellent condition. Ko Olina has lots of activities but it is a long drive to Honolulu and traffic is awful during rush hour. However, the real downer is the crazy Internet system they have. If your computer goes dormant for any reason, you must go through the log-in process from scratch. An unbelievably inefficient and stupid policy. I can fathom no reason for this other than to irritate their customers.
