Good review.
Snorkling and water tubing for the family is emphasized.





Aulani opts for Menehune over Tiki:

Haha, Savoy6, that sounds like a very good encapsulation. Only one way to be certain - to go visit and check it out.

I'm guessing that Disney's Aulani isn't oceanfront - I have not heard of any beaches associated with the resort.

The Atlantis built a new timeshare resort adjacent to the original. This has made it virtually impossible to visit the famous "movie beaches" of that part of the island without being a paid guest, although you may be able to walk from adjacent resorts if you are willing to spend the time and a little extra cab fare. In years past I took great pride in sneaking in to all sorts of things on and around Atlantis.

It is oceanfront, but with man-made beach/lagoons....actually, there are no mellow family friendly beaches on the west coast over there....it's always too rough!

Here's the beach / lagoon at the Aulani, I took this last year the morning after a tsunami warning and the beach was closed.
