I'm looking for a resort type hotel which is oceanfront for a family of 4. I would like a 4-5 star, but would like to pay < $500/day. Am I dreaming? I was looking into the Aulani because it is such a nice resort, but the location is bad for accessibility to the restaurants and shopping and Waikiki in general. There appear to be a lot of negative posts about it also on Trip advisor. The cost is quite high.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
