We just returned from our first Thanksgiving away from home and we're really glad we chose Aulani.
The pools are great and there are so many resort activities that you really never need to leave the property.
Rainbow Reef (the resort saltwater snorkeling area) was a great way to introduce kids (and adults) to snorkeling. The Lazy river and water slides were great as well. There are a good number of pools and even some that are Adults Only. All in all the resort is definitely 4.5 stars.
We stayed in a standard room with an ocean view (which means we were on a high floor). The rooms are OK, but nothing extraordinary. Our children had their own "spa day" and absolutely loved it!
Parking is $35/day, need I say more?
The food at the restaurants are ok, some great meals (breakfast) and others (lunch) not so great. Thanksgiving offerings at the sit down restaurant ('ama 'ama) was less than memorable. But sitting in an open air dining room listening to the waves and island music made it tolerable.
Overall I would definitely recommend this resort for people with children. We plan on going back next year for Thanksgiving, we just won't order the Turkey and Stuffing.
