We are a family of 3. Stayed in Aulani for 5 nights. We totally enjoyed our vacation. I'll list mostly positives but I'll try to include negatives (if you could call it that). First off, it is no secret that the resort is expensive. But you get what you pay for. The buildings are magnificent, very detailed. Lush gardens are...

Visited this place for my wife's birthday and also a niece's birthday. Check-in process was smooth. However once walking to the room, found out that the hotel was undergoing some construction which closed down the elevators from the lobby for one entire wing. To get to our 16th floor room, we had to share ONE elevator between hundreds of people...

We upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa upon arrival and it was amazing, heaps of space for my 3 children, mother, husband and I. Check in was late but wasn't an issue because you can use the pools and lounge/shower rooms all day. Utilise your stay and get there when the pools open at 8! The place was everything I...

Excellent service and Disney level service. We thought there would be more Disney characters roaming around. Pools are awesome but busy. Dinner buffet very expensive for the quality. Grounds are beautifully maintained. Kids club is perhaps the best feature of the resort. Very safe and secure and kids loved it. The one complaint I have is that we paid for...

Disney asked us to come and do a time share. I had never really done a time share but I was like ok. We went in April it was really beautiful weather. This is a great resort and especially if you have kids. They gave us a comp for two dole whips. And a fifty dollar gift card just for...

The resort is beautiful. It is very busy but I expected this based on previous reviews and the fact that it is a Disney resort. The service you receive is also exceptional. The characters are out frequently and the kids are able to take pictures with them. Everything on the resort is pricey but so is everything else in Hawaii....

We had a magical stay at Aulani! We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa near the pool that had a washer, dryer, kitchen & 2 bathrooms. Having travelled to many places and stayed in many resorts - Aulani surprised us as Disney went to detail with the furnishings and spotless facilities from the bathrooms to the bbq area. There are...

This is a great hotel, especially if you have young kids. If you an adult couple or honeymooners, i would avoid this place. From the outset, the Aulani service was great as you would expect from Disney. Everything is catered for, with plenty for the kids to do around the beach and pools. Several options from the lazy river, to...

I have been to three Disneyland theme parks (Florida, Hong Kong and Tokyo) but I thought Aulani Resort and Spa is more impressive (even it is not a themed park). No, no long lines-up in the sun that will drain you out but you can still have a magical experiences. It has new, well-maintained, beautiful architecture, landscape designs, friendly staffs...

What a great experience we had as a family. Such a beautiful resort and we loved that there was a water park for the kids and us big kids. Shopping and affordable restaurants are located across the street. We rented a car and got to eat with the locals and Pearl Harbor was just a short drive. It was a...

“High floors will improve your view, although a ground floor pool view would let you walk right out of your room to the pool area.”
