Yes, Hawaii is all CL. We stayed in Samoa and loved it. We had a first floor room facing the quiet pool and we never had a problem with noise. As others have said, you may experience noise if you are on the other side facing the volcano pool, but we were fine where we were at. We loved Samoa as it was very convenient to everything as it was just steps from the GCH, volcano pool, the beach, and Captain Cooks.

We loved Rapa Nui. We were on the parking lot side but we also had a view of the monorail, which is cool. What I loved most about Rapa Nui though was that it is a 2 min walk to Tickets & Transportation, which means that getting to the MK and Epcot is super easy. I think Rapa Nui is closed right now though so check before requesting...

We have stayed in Samoa and Tahiti and didn't find either to be loud at all. We prefer Samoa because of its closeness to the GCH, pools, and transportation. Tahiti is nice but far from the GCH, although very close to TTC. If EPCOT is a major focus of your trip this may be nice as well.

I think I would request Rapa Nui. And, if you have a car, there is a small (not main) parking lot right by Rapa Nui. It is a very quiet location. But, it is one of the farthest from the magic Kingdom monorail. But that does not make it far. Rather, it is a few minutes walk to the magic kingdom monorail from rapa nui. But, it is the closest to the Epcot monorail at ticket and transportation center.
