    Beautiful - as expected from Disney

    We stayed in the grand villa as part of DVC. It was a very spacious 3 bedroom 3 bath room. The views were spectacular and being at the end of the hall, we didnt have the noise of people passing through at all hours. I love the extremely long balcony that gave a great view of the layout of the pools and beach. They were working on the lazy river and stuff in the middle, so all of that was closed off for construction. It kinda sucked to hear that noise going on throughout the day, but they have to get work done some time, so you kinda just had to deal with it. My one complaint would be that the parking spaces in the garage are very small. So many people didnt park their cars correctly and were crossing into other spaces so it made it very difficult to park correctly or even find a spot. I guess some guests couldnt be bothered with straightening their cars out as a courtesy to others. The full kitchen was nice and we shopped at the nearby walmart and other grocery store to make breakfast every morning or have sandwiches and snacks. We explored the rest of the island for more local choices for dining, though we did eat at Ama Ama on our final night - which was delicious!

    We stayed in a villa. It's pricey, even w/ kamaaina discount. It was spacious and even included a kitchen (that we didn't use). The bathroom was nice and even had a jacuzzi. The pool is relaxing but very crowded. The character bfast is not as good as Goofy's Kitchen in terms of selection, quantity and overall character experience (none came to our table). Would love to stay here again.

    Beautiful resort with the added Disney charm

    Took a family of 5 here for 3 nights and it was a magical experience. The hotel was beautiful with multiple pools, slides and various water activity for kids. The beach was calm and perfect for toddlers. My kids particularly enjoyed going to Aunty's beach house. Its free for kids 3 and over. Meals are expensive, but there are grocery stores nearby. Will definitely go again when I can afford it ;-)

    Comfortable stay

    Been here a few times now, still a great place to stay. Hotel is however a little tired and really expensive for in house food and drink. The pool areas are a little slippery and saw a couple of people slip over. The room itself had everything (plus more) that we needed, was clean and very comfortable. Staff were very helpful when we needed assistance. Parking wise, self park on site, don't use the valet, it isn't needed. Will still stay here again however was probably a little disappointed this time. I would assume that an upgrade for the rooms etc. will happen soon.

    very nice resort with friendly service

    The resort is beautiful with a beautiful beach and facilities. The only draw back is far away from the city, and takes one hour drive to get to downtown Honolulu. There is Disney character in restaurant and the atmosphere is fun and the food is good.
