The best family resort

It has private lagoon to play with. The ocean wave is quieter. It is safe to let small kids going... See full review

A luxurious Island sanctuary away from the city
JW is a luxury offshoot of the Marriott hotel group, and the Ihilani Resort and Spa reflects the company's emphasis on pared-down style, with its simple wooden furnishings and muted palette. Sitting solo on a private beach cove with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and the Waianae mountain range, the hotel has an impressive arsenal of amenities, ranging from seawater massage and color therapies at the spa to championship golfing. Sip Blue Hawaii's by the side of the pool as the sun sinks, dine on coconut shrimp at Naupaka Terrace, or rise early for some yoga under the shade of the huge tropical greenery in the hotel garden; guests can design their visits exactly as they wish at the JW.

Neighborhood
Located on Oahu's scenic western shore, the Marriott Ihilani is within the Ko Olina resort, just up the coast from Ko Olina Beach Park. This area is known for its 'wow' factor, even amongst the postcard-worthy beaches of Oahu. Less crowded than Honolulu's famous Waikiki strip, the lagoons here are perfect for activities like paddle boarding, snorkeling, and even whale-watching. The nearest city is Kapolei, a vibrant residential community to the east, while Kalaeloa Airport (JRF) is roughly a 17-minute drive away.
Hints and tips
Breakfast options at the Marriott Ihilani Hotel are numerous, but if an alfresco wake-up feast sounds tempting, try the Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict from the Poolside Bar.

While out and about, be on the lookout for street snacks like malasadas, a kind of Portuguese donut popular around the island.

Good all around.

As others have said on here the hotel was wonderful. Far from the maddening crowd of Honolulu and it's traffic. Make sure to have GPS to go anywhere, the traffic is bad all over the island. If you're young and want to 'make the scene' go to Waikiki, but for a laid back vacation this is the place. The hotel has many little hidden charges...beware $35.00 per day parking and if something says free it usually refers to once for 30 min....then the charging begins. Food in the hotel is very high but high all over the island and good food within walking distance. The lagoon makes for easy swimming but don't expect waves and there are many children because of the Disney resort next door that shares the lagoon.

Nice hotel

Nice hotel, friendly staff. It's a little touristy with the Disney hotel next door, but still a fun place to stay.

The best family resort

It has private lagoon to play with. The ocean wave is quieter. It is safe to let small kids going into water. It has its own pool also. It is nice. Hotel room is big and comfort as well. Overall it is the best in west area of Oahu from price point of view.

Had a great getaway!

My girlfriend and I only stayed one night this last time, but it was a good little 'vacation' for us (we both live here on O'ahu). We had a great time at the beach and a great Saturday night seafood buffet. The room was cool, clean, and comfortable, and staff was polite and helpful. The biggest negative is the price (of course) but we have stayed at this hotel before and will do so again, simply because there are so few good hotels for locals, and this one is definitely a good one.

Awesome experience

The hotel is around 20 minutes away from the waikiki beach, so there is not so crowed even in summer season. Me and my husband enjoy the five days trip at JW Marriott . We also found the good food around the hotel. Teddy's burger and tasty bbq are only 5 minutes far, and they both awesome.

Great retreat

The location is great if you would like to get away from the hustle of Honolulu. The service of the staff was great, they were very respectable. The only issue is from the amount of the resort fees you will be charged during check out. Overall a very great place, I would most likely be back.
