Fairmont or Grand Wailea?

We are going to Maui in August with two kids (ages 8 and 6). We can't decide between the two. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I would add that the water slides are great at GW, nothing like it...BUT...if your kids are 6 and 8, depending on their swimming, you may end up having to go along with them on the whole slide river! Otherwise you have to be prepare to let them go, and find their way back thru all the pathways, caves, crowds...at 10 or 11, OK, but at 6 we worried about letting them out of our sight...some of the water is a little deep. KL slide ends at one place, more laid back and less crowded. Maybe a couple days at both?
