Recent guest reviews

Can't not be better!!! They upgraded us to partial ocean view studio but I asked about upgrade to one bed room, they offered $50/night but it has a garden view . Room was great.

Always great at disney. Rooms were good size. We loved the pools. The shows were awesome and as always safe for the kiddos

We stayed for 6 days, it was wondeful...my son had a blast....he didn't want to leave the pool or beach area..my wife and I enjoyed it aswell..Lazy River awesome...

Only disappointment was no movies to rent or premium channels. Need to bring DVDs. Otherwise, beautiful, luxurious, property, children are plentiful but seem to be well behaved for some reason. Never seemed too crowded. Buffet was spendy but disappointing for the price. Get to pools early if you want a good lounge. The beautiful settings make up for any shortcomings. It's a huge property, they do a great job!

Everything about this hotel was great. Both me and my son enjoyed the vacation. Restaurants were nice, beach was lovely and pools and slides were awesome. You definitely feel the Disney magic here. Loved it. Will be back for sure...

Our family like Aulani a lot because of the location. It's away from the busy Waikiki area but at the same time we are able to do what we wanted to do and was able to explore other areas too by driving. My daughter enjoyed Aunty's beach house a lot. The only downfall is $35 for parking.

We have returned to Aulani four times and love it each time. Tip 1: during holiday periods, get to the pool early in the morning to make sure you get a good deck chair near the amazing pools. Tip 2: make your restaurant reservations in advance through the hotel's website.

Lazy river was fun even mom went on it twice was kinda of disappointed first night did not see any Disney characters but the next morning we saw them all Great time thanks

This was my second trip to the resort as the first one was exceptional. I was disappointed at the customer service this time around. Last time I got a room with 2 queens and when I asked for one king, they were open to helping me find something that would work. This time around, they said there wasn't any availability and there wasn't an apology or any effort to try to make my stay better. Some, not all of the employee weren't as friendly as before. The first time (2012), everyone was in a great mood and very friendly. This time, some employees gave us attitude seemed like they did not want to be there. I used to tell all of my friends and family about the resort, but this time, i'm reconsidering it. Not sure if I will go back now. It's unfortunate.

Disney thinks of everything for the kiddos. We had a great time!

Disney thinks of everything for vacationers with children. Being new to parenthood and this being our daughter's first trip I was very nervous, but Aulani was amazing!

Dreams do come true in this aulani disney resort. We had a great time. Mahalo!!

Very fun and beautiful hotel and will be coming back soon.

Enjoyed the experience. I think it would be too much for more than a day or two, but was a fun experience for my kids for a short stay. Nice rooms, nice staff, nice pools and beach. Even still, a bit pricey for the experience.

Took the family here. My little ones loved it. The rooms are clean and new. The service is great and accomadating.

The hotel was perfect, pools a little bit cold but its perfecto for kids, 100% recommended!!

You get what you pay for. Pretty pricey, but all I can say is.... Awesome awesome awesome. Wonderful, friendly staffs. Love Aulani!!! We got engaged there during our trip and the staffs were all so sweet! I would also recommend the SPA! A little bit pricey but it is worth it. Can't wait to return again!!

We stayed for 6 nights and had a blast. The spa is a must-do and everything is perfected down to the little detail. The only complaint that I had was that the prices on the menus aren't consistent and can be overpriced (I had a $21 cheeseburger that wasn't as good as Wendys for example). Overall I really enjoyed the entire stay and the atmosphere.

Pricey but worth it. We are going back for two more days

Ok, Disney is out to steal your money! Gosh its so expensive to stay here. Ok the rooms themselves are on the highend, but understandable. Its just that they add on 20 dollars here, 30 dollars there, and on and on. So you though\t you were spending 500dollars a night, but you end up paying like 10000 dollars a night. Stay away from the Character Breakfast, as the food is terrible but will charge you like 70 bucks for 2 adults and one child. Add on a photo with Mickey and you get charged 110 bucks with tips etc. The all you can drink soda cup costs 20bucks. Which you can use for the whole period you stay in the resorts sounds expensive, but I think is the most reasonable thing on the resort. I recommend you go out of Ko'oilina resort and drive down to Kapolei area for dinner. Cheaper and better quality than the resort. All in all a good time for the kids, but tough time for your wallet.
