The pool looks nice. It is probably the best selling point of the resort. I'm not sure I care much for the beach/lagoon. If I stay there, I will have to go elsewhere for a respectable beach.
I've had the pleasure of swimming in the lagoons and relaxing on beach chairs at Ko Olina. I consider the lagoons to be very "respectable." The water is warm. The lagoons are beautiful. And being able to go to a wonderful beach without having to get into a car is terrific.
The lagoons at Ko Olina do not have large waves. Is someone is looking for large waves, then, I agree, that person might want to go to a different beach.
Curator of Yesterland, featuring discontinued Disneyland attractions
It has been a great pleasure watching this take shape over the last couple of years. Thank you for the marvelous photos and sharing of information. Our family could not resist the Sirens' Call and we bought into Aulani. I was surprised the Disney sales person had not seen this series of articles and she was quite pleased with your evolution of the resort.
