Recent guest reviews

Great time. The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool. The good at the hotel is quite expensive.

Was a wonderful hotel for young children. Our 18 month old had fun and there was areas set up where she could play without us having to hover. Friendly and helpful staff, clean, and excellent room accommodations. We did get a free room upgrade which was really nice. Wish it was closer to some local attractions such as pearl harbor and diamond head or that parking was cheaper. Would recommend for families.

Family oriented and amenities were great. They took care of everything. And it was a tropical paradise. Awesome pools next to the beach with its own lagoon!

We liked being away from Waikiki. Great facility for families. Having a kitchen helped save money on meals. Easy to get anywhere on the island from the location (Especially the North Shore). Customer service is first rate.

Lots of fun for little kids! The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had a kitchen and laundry too! Nobody wants to do laundry while on vacation, but if you are set on traveling light with kids, you can't help but to throw in a load before heading down to the pool for some fun. It was great being able to leave the kids at Auntie's Beach house at no extra charge. We can't wait to go back!

Hotel and resort was great. The kids loved it. Kids activities with meet and greet for the kiddies!!!

Great trip that everyone enjoyed the lazy river tubing, beach, and catamaran boating.

We had a wonderful first stay at Aulani. The kids loved the various activities and the beach/lagoon. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. We also enjoyed the character breakfast. We'd love to return again in the future!

Although the Aulani is not the cheapest place to stay in the Ko Olina area, it's definitely an experience. We went at the height of summer but there were so many pools that all the people were spread out enough to be comfortable. If you didn't want to swim in the pool, the beach was steps away and the water was so calm and warm. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Having the kitchen helped to lower some costs by preparing breakfast and lunches in the room instead of eating out everyday. The Aulani has a kids club called Auntie Beach House, but it was a tough sell to our kids since they always wanted to be out in the pool or beach. They did go once to make space goo and they had a blast! The kids club is included in the price of the hotel, so if you can get your kids to attend, it's a great opportunity for mom and dad to enjoy some alone time! The biggest minus is the fact that some of the more popular activities (like the space goo) need reservations and you need to stand in line daily to reserve a spot for your child. Reservations start at 7:30, but the line starts forming before 7am, so if you're not an early riser, you probably won't get a guaranteed spot for those activities. The staff at the Aulani were always welcoming, helpful and courteous. When they greet you at arrival, they say welcome home and for the time we stayed there, it really did feel like home. Thank you Aulani for a vacation our family will always remember.

My teenage daughter and I were at the Aulani for 3 nights. We had a great time relaxing on the lazy river, swimming in the lagoon and pool. We also had the honi honi massage at the Aulani. Though the massage was expensive it was well worth it. The food at the hotel was expensive as expected. We ate dinner one night at monkey pod across the street from the hotel. The food was really good and they hand live music which was enjoyable.

Muted disney theme. Room layouts are a little smaller than most hotel rooms. Loved the lazy river! Great location away from the over crowded waikiki beach.

Went during spring break. It was busy but no overly crazy. Kids had a blast. Disney knows how to make kids happy.

The hotel, pool, beach and kids club are worth the money.

Fun for all in Hawaii. Disney Magic for the kiddos and nice for the parents too.

The Disney Aulani is on of the best places we've ever stayed. The room was awesome! We would definitely go back. Disney Resorts are the best in the world. You get what you pay for. Even though Hawaii is a bit on the expensive side, we would go back to the Disney Aulani again. I strongly recommend this place. GREAT TIMES!!!

This is our third time visiting Aulani. Our daughter loves Disney Characters and the pool. We learned the first 2 times that the restaurant experience at the Aulani is really not good, too expensive and very low food taste quality, we opted to for the one bedroom suite with full kitchen. The room was labeled Ocean View. I would say the room was a Partial Ocean View at best.... One thing i noticed was that the Lazy River pool seemed to be heated slightly. So although the outside temp was not very high, I didnt get the feeling that it was so cold as my previous 2 stays. Overall, satisfied with the stay, and i cooked all of my meals during my stay which i think is the best way to go here. The restaurants in Kapolei area are aweful too...

it was a wonderful trip for the kid. Not much to do for adult. Foods are pricy but not that bad. ABC store is close and very convenient. We stayed for five days. Three days are good enough.

Limited food options. Be prepared to choose only 3 food options and bar/pool food.

Perfect vacation - great weather, lots of activities, and Hawaii! The Disney themes are muted - which I liked - not so much in your face (like at the parks or cruise). The service is impeccable. The prices are steep but its Hawaii and Disney, so be aware. The location in Ko'Olina is perfect - always better weather on the leeward side. The downside it that you have to drive a bit to most of the sites in Honolulu and the windward side. Nice trade off, though.
