Sheraton waterslide vs. Marriott Ko olina waterslide???

Deciding between these two hotels for the family with 2 kids 12 and 14. Can anyone tell me their opinions on the water slides at these two hotels? Which slide is funner?

Thank you.

I agree with scott on this one. There is certainly nothing spectacular about any water slides at the hotels...but, if you really want the best slide at a hotel, it would be at scott's least favorite hotel....Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Additionally, the two hotels you mentioned are in two very different parts of the island. The Sheraton is in Waikiki, while the Marriott is quite aways away...with very little to do outside the resort grounds; although, you will be closer to the waterpark if slides dictate your location.

I'm a little (well, no ... I am VERY) concerned that you are making your decision based on a water-slide? Wow ... not a good idea.

These two areas are very different, as are the hotels/resorts. Ko'olina is isolated and you won't find much to do in that area. About 45 minutes, if you are lucky, from Waikiki.

Are you familiar with both areas? Will you have a car? Start with a good map and a list of the things you want to do. And remember that the Pacific Ocean and grrreat beaches are at your doorstep.

You are from California. There are water parks all over the place. Keep that in mind.

If your young people don't love the beach vibe in Waikiki, I would be very surprised. Forget the pool slides and stay in Waikiki. In fact, I would go so far as to choose a less pricy hotel and use the money saved for surfing and stand up paddle board lessons and to rent boogie boards. Hawaii = beach, not pool.
