It is a really nice resort and its got one of our must eats, Boma. It's our Home resort as well, as a matter of fact just the other day I book a week in Feb/Mar three days ago. We picked it because of its relatively low cost per point per night when we normally do a bulk of our travels.

Yes DW and I went to Bomas and thought it was amazing. I loved the little zebra cake things! We quite often just visit AKL to hang around. We like the atmosphere and the shop there. Our home resort is SSR which we love. Its great for me as I am disabled, got zero entry pools and very flat. I have auto immune disease which attacks joints, digestion and eyes ( nice lol ) so AKL is a bit dark for me. I keep falling over as I cant see properly when my eyes are bad! But if it wasnt for that we would def get points there.

We booked for May 2013 but because we now have to use dvc points for the awol cruise in september we had to pay to stay at ASMo! Instead of SSR! DCL have managed to affect two holidays!

Where do you live?

We live in Los Angeles. Wow it's really interesting how my plans really was like no biggie to change, and yours were a huge deal. I am not making light out if it, just interesting how the world works. Truly shows how every situation is different for everyone. Another reason for AKL is the fact I work for a airline so we can go at a whim if we wanted. Since the resort is large with the addition of Kadani, and it's low point per night cost, it was a perfect fit for us to stench our points. I mean I have 17 nights booked for 2013, still have 22 points left and I had to borrow 13 points for our trip this year.

Cool re LA. Me and DW went there and really enjoyed it. The Paul Ghetty museum was amazing. That is really good value re AKL. It is funny isnt it how this charter has impacted different people. I bet there are some who are even worse off we dont know about!

Your right. There are probably people in way worse shape than us.

Cool. We did not regret it in fact we bought more points since! Have you tried Hawaii yet? We would love too. We did a cruise around the Hawaiian islands a few years back when my health was better and were blown away by it.

We were on the first Hawaian cruise on the Wonder in April/May. It was fabulous. I would not want to stay at Alunai. Besides being to many points per night, it is way to far from everything. We were able to take a free tour thanks to DVC, but after seeing how far it is from Honolulu and Waikiki, we are not interested. It is a beautiful resort though. I will give it that.
