Just finished our third trip to Aulani. It has truly become our favorite place on the planet! The staff, the lazy river, the pools, the atmosphere...all of it is wonderful. We have an adult daughter with Down syndrome and we always bring her best friend, also disabled. They still adore the characters, the pool parties, the crafty things in the Community House. And the staff is incredible with them.
We had an ocean view one bedroom using DVC points. Incredible view. The room was very clean and well stocked. I cooked dinner a few times, made breakfast every day and made many lunches. Also there is washer and dryer which I used every day for swim suits and even towels since DVC members don't get towel service every day. We stopped at the Safeway on the way from the airport to get supplies.
This is our first time in a one bedroom. We had a two bedroom the last two times. So there a couple of issues that I didn't consider before. First, the bathroom has slatted doors, allowing little privacy. A silly design feature. Also there is no storage in the living room. The couch pulls out to a comfortable bed and there is a single bed thst folds down under the tv. But that means there are no drawers in the living room. Another silly design feature.
Some people complain about the food. I think it is fine and yes expensive but so are all restaurants in Hawaii. The Monkeypod across the street had good food, again a little pricey, with entertainment every night. The Marriott next door has a nice restaurant, Azul, with excellent food. And there is a sushi place across the street that was great.
Also, if you play tennis, the marriott had tennis courts you can use for $23 an hour. We played there three times.
