On the whole, we find that Disney tries to do things well. This resort stood out as unique and different from other regular resorts. It was a little shy of what we would like it to be as Disney, but still great overall. The price is hefty. But the price does include the taxes/fees, and there is not an additional... More

Aulani is a beautiful resort. The attention to detail is true to Disney form and I love how they really focus on Hawaiian culture. Sadly, the beauty is where it ends for anyone over the age of 18. Sure, Aulani has great fun for kids, it is a Disney resort after all. However, there is only one real adult pool... More

We've stayed at Aulani twice now, and would come back every year if we could. There is so much good to say about this resort. It's great for singles, couples, and families. You can be as active or inactive as you like. The private lagoon is fabulous; the pools and hot tubs are great, too. There are plenty of dining... More

Too expensive and very crowded. Beaches are made of fake sand ( more gritty) and fakey inlets. Water was mucky. Went once, wouldn't go back. Some places had great food, others not so much! The pools were fine, just crowded. The characters are sporadic, they are usually in the breakfast buffet....which was fabulous! Just expensive all the way around!

Aulani is a gorgeous resort with beautiful amenities. If you are an average family wanted to go on an affordable vacation do not come here. Hawaii and aulanis scenery is world class beauty however everything is very expensive, especially food and groceries (13$ for a cold turkey wrap for example, alcoholic drinks are 13ea as well) . So get your... More

Aulani is our favorite staycation destination. Living on Oahu, there are plenty of hotels to choose from, but we love the West side to get away from all the city congestion and Waikiki craziness. We usually just get a standard view room, but this time we splurged for an ocean view one bedroom suite. Definitely worth the extra money. The... More

We had a long awaited family holiday with our three boys at Aulani. My boys are aged 10, 8 & 7 - the perfect age for the resort in my opinion. Highlights include generous, well appointed rooms, immaculate grounds, friendly staff, Disney characters, kid's club, lots of fun thanks to pools & slides, located on an amazing beach. I've seen...

Aulani was a very nice resort however we stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and it cost over $800 per night. In the evenings we found ourselves bored as the pools and activities closed for the most part at 6pm. I honestly do not feel that the resort lived up to the disney hype which I have found is the...

Aulani is by far the best resort I've been to. Everyone in my family had an amazing time. The kids really enjoyed the kids club, water slides and meeting their favorite Disney characters. I really enjoyed the free classes by the beach every morning. The hotel is super comfortable, quiet and they offer activities for the whole family. I highly... More

We are a couple in our 60's and DVC members. Aulani is one of our home resorts. Anything Disney is considered a family affair and they do a wonderful job with that. However, they also do a great job of remembering that not everyone comes with children. We just got back from a two week vacation there and had a... More
