The travel industry has been hit hard recently and probably none harder than Hawaii. This was my 4th visit to Aulani, in the last 5 years, and the only reason that it doesn’t have a 5 rating is because the COVID-19 has required mitigation measures that closed some of the amenities. Besides that we had a great time with a group of 9 in a 2 bedroom and a studio. All staff were very nice and kind. Also, as a DVC member, this has been one of our favorite spots in the array of choices. The real disappointment came when we discovered that the Ama Ama was closed. I hope this pandemic ends soon so to restore full operation to the Aulani as well as other hotels.
August trip report
Sep 13, 2021
Our group (5 adults, ages 34 to 66) spent 4 nights Aug 28-Sept 1 and the overall consensus is a solid 4 stars. We felt we got a good value using DVC points versus paying $ for the room. Highly recommend the luau which had pretty good food and exceptional entertainment. Also, each group sat at their own table. We rented the executive lanai for one day at $350. This was an excellent base for our pool/beach resort day. The service was quite slow (the lady was incredibly nice but she had the entire pool area) so bring your own snacks and drinks. The reef onsite had plenty of beautiful fish but like people have mentioned before, it is very cold. We loved the pools, adult hot tub, slides, and lazy river. The two disappointments with Aulani were the food (we all thought the food at Makahiki was pretty bad, however the acai bowl at the café was delicious) and how dark our two-bedroom ocean-view villa was. We liked that Aulani's location on Oahu was peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu.
