A must stay at! A review of JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa
Our family had a tremendous time at the Ihilani resort. The room was very spacious (even for our family of 5), the staff was friendly and helpful and the lagoons (4 of them) were incredible. They are perfect for children since there are virtually no waves. The snorkeling was great and there is a nice walkway that connects the four lagoons (perfect for a quiet evening stroll). True that the resort is about 30 minutes from Honolulu, but I would much rather stay away from a tourist trap like Waikiki. We spent one day at Waikiki beach and concluded that there is NO comparison to the lagoons at Kapolei. The beach at Waikiki was crowded, dirty and the waves were too big for our young children.
We loved the Ko Olina Resort! We also loved the Ko Olina Beach Club by Marriott! Talk about a luxurious vacation- Marriotts Ko Olina Beach club is hard to beat-just a mile from the JW Marriott Ihilani. ENJOY AND HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!!!
