We lived in Hawaii for many years in the ‘80s and ‘90s and have been multiple-week Marriott Ko Olina owners since 2005. Our children, nieces and nephews live on the islands – and Marriott Ko Olina has always been #1 choice for our Oahu stays. We stay a few weeks in the spring and a few weeks in the summer.
One of the things we love about Marriott Ko Olina is how close the resort is to everything and yet how wonderfully far away. There’s nothing you can’t get to in about 30 minutes, give or take, from the North Shore and its wonderful shops and quieter beaches, to Waikiki and its hustle and bustle. On the North Shore, be sure to eat at the shrimp trucks or have a shave ice and spend some time watching the surfers.
As Ko Olina is on the West Side, the resort and nearby Kapolei have much better weather than other parts of the island. We stay and enjoy bright, sunshine and relaxing days year round, even when other parts of the island are getting a lot of rain.
The units have full kitchens and we save a ton of money by cooking most of our own meals. Kapolei, which is 5 minutes away, is where we do much of our shopping and dining while on Oahu. We love shopping at Costco for its low prices but also shop at Safeway, Foodland and other stores.
As Marriott Ko Olina now has rental cars on site, we stopped renting cars for our entire stay and now only rent on a day or two we want to go out shopping or travel around the rest of the island. Transportation from the airport to the resort is fairly priced, so we use that to get to and from the resort.
We like the beach, the pools, the rental cabanas, and the BBQ area. One of our favorite activities is a daily walk along the waterfront. The boardwalk goes 1.7 miles from the marina past the resorts and lagoons to its end by JW Marriott. Lots of places along the walk to quietly enjoy the beautiful sunsets.
Of course, you don’t need to even leave the room to see the sunsets. The ocean view rooms have wonderful views - and the ocean can be seen from the lanais, bedroom windows and living room windows. Often we spend the mornings on the lanai, enjoying the beautiful view while we eat breakfast, read the newspaper and drink our coffee.
Even though we enjoy visiting Maui sometimes, we prefer Oahu and the Kapolei area. There simply are more choices and more options.
During the spring whale watching season, we have several times seen migrating whales from our balcony—no expensive boat ride required, only patience. On our last visit, we saw several pods pass through, with whales breaching. With whales, it’s timing as much as anything and they do pass by the west shores of Oahu.
We also like the resort because the staff is always friendly and helpful. If there’s ever a problem, it is solved quickly.
Very relaxing. Recommended.

My wife & I, along with our daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren stayed in a 3-bedroom unit at Marriott Ko Olina in 2007. This was the most memorable and close to perfect vacation we have ever had. Since that time we generally traveled to Maui or Cancun for a restful time on the beach. We decided (just my wife & myself) to revisit Ko Olina this January (2015). At first we were a bit apprehensive about what to expect, since often times memories can lead to unrealistic expectations. I am pleased to announce that the Marriott Ko Olina is still as wonderful as we remembered. The facilities have been well maintained, the Ko Olina representatives (from check-in to check-out) were so friendly & always asked how we were enjoying our stay. They all seemed to wear a smile, but why not…they live in Hawaii. Mahalo to all of you for making us feel like Ohana. While in Hawaii, and afterward, I found myself thanking our Creator for allowing us to enjoy His beautiful creation. More than once, my wife & I commented to each other that regardless of where we looked, it was beautiful…a glimpse of heaven. And on top of everything else, we were happy to see that the Chief was back with the Fia Fia. Thanks to all of you, and especially the Hawaiian people, for making this vacation another wonderful time to remember and reflect on.
Just one (non-critical) suggestion: Please consider cleaning the beach a few times a week. You take a few sweeps back and forth in the sand, but some days we found the beach to be littered with non-natural materials. Where we stay in Cancun, all of the workers (including room service & beyond) take a few minutes in the morning to simply make sure the beach is clean. Due to the basic size of the Marriott Ko Olina, you would not need all of the workers, but just having a few to clean the lagoon beaches would be a nice touch. I’m not trying to be critical, but more so helpful in trying to maintain the natural look of the island. (This is the only reason I gave the cleanliness a 4 instead of a 5 star.)

Worst vacation experience imaginable. We were at Marriott’s Ko Olina Vacation Club from 9/14-9/21. We rented our timeshare vacation from an owner from RedWeek.com Unbeknownst to us, Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club was aware that the Arashi Japanese Boy Band would have a Premier Concert right in the middle of all Five Resorts including Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club Resort on Ko Olina’s property. There was no notification by Marriot Ko Olina Beach Club to any guest or owner prior to check-in, although Marriott was aware of this nightmare 45 days in advance. At least 45 days. Ko Olina, according to the Resort Manager, Bill Quieseng, "facilitated" this concert. The giant stage was placed in the middle of all Ko Olina Buildings, approximately 100 yards from our balcony. We arrived at night and had no idea what awaited us for the next Six days of our stay.
We were awoken on Monday at 8:00 a.m. to the sound of music and sound checks amplified through our closed slider. The same obnoxious song played over and over on a loop. We were treated to the same creepy looping every morning and intermittently for Six days. Six days instead of Seven because WE LEFT the resort 24 hours EARLY.
This was not the worst of what we were subjected to. Every guest on this “Marriott Resort" property was assaulted with the most intense noise pollution you could be subjected to, short of intentional psychological torture. The effect was the same. Every day for Six days, 12 hours per day, every inch of the property was consumed with incessant amplified sound checks that lasted for hours at full concert venue volume. Sounds like da da, bom bom bom, yah yah yah, etc., constantly. When the sound checks ended, intermittently, because they were every day, we were soon to be bombarded by strobe lights repeatedly streaming the balcony, slider and walls of our Marriott Resort room. What we thought was quite enough only gained momentum when the Japanese Stage Manager having to check thousands of strobe lights and video, repeatedly and methodically gave direction over the same PA system amplified at the same full volume as the sound checks. Constant direction being repetitively given to someone in Japanese at full amplified volume. He had a mind crushing habit of going, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, for about three seconds after every sentence.
Again, this assault was inescapable anywhere from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. In your room, beach, restaurants, even underwater. Literally underwater while snorkeling. Every person on this so-called "Marriott Resort” was infuriated. I've Never seen so many miserable people on vacation. The distress and visible frustration on every guest and owner face was something that will never be easily forgotten and easily describable by any of our photos or videos taken in the midst of constant suffering.
The staff was completely unresponsive. Some were polite and apologized, although ALL of them denied any Marriott involvement. The party line was, “We have no control over this, had nothing to do with it, and you'll just have to deal with it." This is on Ko Olina property, mind you.
On the 4th day, 9/17, the Resort Manager, Bill Quieseng sent a letter to each room describing how things would get worse on the days of the actual concert. Two days, Friday and Saturday, 15 to 20 thousand people being bussed in each day. Firetrucks, Police Cars, Taxis, Shuttles and 110 Buses were chartered to cram the two lanes in or out of the main intersection to the Marriott Resort. Any guest or owner staying at the Marriott Resort could not use shuttle service to and from restaurants and cars could barely move in or out of the Marriott Resort area. The letter stated that Ko Olina "facilitated" this monstrosity, and that they were "appreciative" of our "understanding". No apology. Ever. From anyone in charge. No compensation or solution to the horrific conditions people were subjected to was ever offered. In terms of hotel management and customer relations the Marriot Ko Olina Beach Club gets an F-, ...repeat the class. You all failed miserably.
I eventually contacted KITV4 ABC News, submitted video from all over the property, and did an on-camera interview in our room. 4 other guests stopped the News Crew …….praying for the opportunity that someone might listen to their common distress…….and were interviewed on camera as well. It aired the night of the first concert. Although my name and image were broadcast across Oahu that night from my balcony at Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club, and I left a voicemail for Resort Manager, Bill Quieseng, I never heard a word. Nothing. This is an insult on top of the abuse we suffered. An absolute outrage.
The Friday of the concert was about to prepare us for “things are about to get worse” show. The Marriott Resort was basically locked down for 12 hours. 110 buses. Roads closed. We were trapped. If we left the Marriott Resort, we could not get back in and staying on resort was just shy of giving us a nervous breakdown. At one point we hiked to a lagoon and tried to remove ourselves only to be told on the way back we would have to walk out to the front intersection and go around the entire five resort buildings to get back to our room. You see at this time they were bringing in the Fireworks to prepare us for the Shelling Effect we were about to endure. And if we didn’t think we might be in the middle of a war zone yet, they added plenty of helicopters to the spectrum. One poor retiree told us he was feeling Post Traumatic Stress from the Vietnam War because he could not tell the difference.
For all of you considering this place, you can guess my advice. We have stayed at Marriott time shares on Maui and Kauai and had pleasant experiences. Those properties are nicer and the staff is much more friendly.
My sister is an owner of Two timeshares and is trying to get us to buy. This will Never happen now, just on principle alone. Don’t waste your time on the 90 Minutes Sales Pitch, because this scenario could definitely happen to YOU, as it did many who bought-in thinking they would retire, relax and read a book by the Pool. Many were psychologically tortured day in and day out. If you think we are being dramatic, check out the interview by Channel 2 News with Eric Takahata of the Hawaiian Tourism Authority, “We have some surprises for everyone next year as well.”
Don’t buy-in, you will be sabotaged as we were.
The island of oahu is not nearly as pretty as Kauai. The traffic is bad, the beaches are not nearly as nice as Kauai, there is a lot of homelessness, and zombie drug addicts lurking in all the more urban areas (Honolulu, Waikiki.) We were told by everyone not to leave anything in your cars here. Ever. Even the docent at the Pearl Harbor Monument told us the parking lot isn't safe.
If you don't want to waste thousands of your hard earned dollars you saved for years, like we did, take your business to Kauai. The responsible parties and “knowing parties” to this catastrophic failure put the interests of the rich and powerful over the most basic consideration of THOUSANDS of their customers. We felt especially bad for the retired elderly people that just needed some rest and rejuvenation. Many with health concerns spent hours being tortured, in disbelief and utter frustration making it impossible to relax.
The management as well as Marriott Resorts has demonstrated an outrageous and unacceptable lack of judgement and incompetence that should never be patronized by guests who will spend many thousands of dollars here. John and Therese Cloughen

Our family had the best time of our lives! So much fun and activities right there at the resort, but also close to many other local attractions. Friendly staff to provide that real feeling of aloha. We will be back many times over! Mahalo, Ko Olina.
