Aulani weather and water in feb?

Hello,

My family is planning a trip to Aulani mid feb. My only concern is that the pools may be too cold. I am high maintenance when it comes to water. I've read that the average ocean temp is 76 - I can live with that. But, how are the pools? I've read some reviews that say the water is "refreshing" or "cool" or even "too cold." Can anyone comment. I usually like the pools to be at lease 80, or higher. It also matter if the weather is cool. Has anyone been to Aulani in feb? How did you find the weather and the water temps? Thanks

I have been to Hawaii in Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Nov.

The weather has been pretty consistent regardless of the time of year. It's been warm to very warm depending on the breezes and cloud cover.

Aulani's pools are refreshing. All of the pools I've used in Hawaii have been that way. When it's that hot outside, it's cool for the first minute when you get in but then it feels really good.

I'm high maintenance about pool temps too. Everyone makes fun of me. I have to prepare myself for the first dip but after I do it I realize it's feeling just right there.

OP I've not been in Feb but you may get more responses if you ask this in the DVC section of the boards vs here as you've find quite a number of DVCers have been on trips.

Air and water temps in Hawaii are pretty much the same year-round - there is little temperature deviation. We've been at all different times of the year and have never been sad - you WILL be cold if you go to the top of any of the peaks on Maui or the Big Island though - it actually snowed on us one year on the Big Island (in May)

If you go to weather dot com and search weather in honolulu, you'll find a chart (I'd link it, but I don't have enough posts).

or you can do www dot weather dot com/weather/wxclimatology/monthly/graph/USHI0026

Oahu regular here: temperature Totally Depends!

I grew up in SF Bay Area and lived a few years in Michigan and my family (part of which grew up in Oahu) visit annually.

That said...standing on Waikiki beach in the middle of the day almost always feels like a microwave...but it's not like that in other parts of the island, especially in the winter. There are parts of the island that is always breezy or wet, etc due to all the microclimates...and there's always going to be a couple days a week of rain/week (will come and go quickly) in the winter.

We were at the Aulani in the Nov. The pool being too cold was definitely an issue for our family...grand parents were basically covered head to toe...wife always wore a cover and we felt the pool too cold for our baby for more then 10 minutes. We would typically run to the hot tubs after a dip.
