I'm deciding between marriotts waiohai beach club (poipu) and outrigger waipouli beach resort. Traveling with husband and two small kids (ages 1 and 3). A great pool, walkable beach (that kids can play on and We can be right on with an ocean view) and preference to walk around to things such as restaurants and stores is key. Initially was leaning towards poipu bc of monk seals and beach seemed a bit more kid friendly based on recommendations. We are definitely looking for relaxing family experience and do not need exciting night life. My first trip to hawaii so would like it to be as authentic as possible. Also want ability to walk to thinks like beach luau dinners, etc. Would love to get insight comparing two places (resorts and areas of island). Will be staying for 8 nights in early September. Thanks.
