We are 4 adults, parents with an 18 and 20 year old. Should we request the Waianae building even number room high floor to be closer to the adult pool or doesn't really matter which building? We are in a 1b OV for a couple of days and then a GV for the rest of the stay. Don't want to request near the adult pool as some of the ocean views in that building seem to look over the JW next door. Don't want them to mistake my request as a view of the adult pool

From the first page I see that the even numbered rooms have the better ocean views


Thanks

We love the Ewe building, room 950 or room 50 on any other floor above. Great ocean view and you can see the whole pool area and the lazy river. Plus you can hear music from the bar right below. The adult pool is on the other side of the hotel, but not a far walk. I really don't recommend the adult pool though...there is no view.

Hello everyone, this is our first post on this thread. We are about to book Aulani for our first trip as DVC members for Thanksgiving 2015. Wondering what Ocean View Studios people recommend, looking at the pictures, it seems you can't go wrong.

I think our priority above all else would be view, as our favorite thing to do when we went on our Disney Cruise last year was sit on our verandah and drink our morning coffee while looking out on the ocean. Any advice for what specific rooms we should request when we book would be welcomed. Thanks so much!

Welcome to the thread. We have been to Aulani twice (Sep 2012; Oct 2014) and have two pieces of general advice about ocean view rooms: Usually, the higher the floor the better the view. The lowest floor for Ocean View villas are on the 6th floor. The views are good, but they improve the higher you go. The second piece of advice I would share is that the Aulani Resort is fairly compact and it doesn't take long to get from one part of the resort to another. Thus, there is little advantage, or disadvantage, to having a villa in one part of the resort over another.

Since views are so subjective, I suggest you click at some of the links in Post #1 and see for yourself what views look most appealing. Personally, I like the Ocean views in the Ewa Building Phase 1 (xx50-xx58) and Ewa Building Long Wing (xx70-xx86) because they offer sunset views.

My 2 cents would be.,,,,,. How important really is the view?? We enjoyed our spot looking out to the ocean and the main lawn, but truly, anything but a parking lo would have been lovely. :-7
