We have heard some jack hammering going on near the #1-4 cabanas, by the right lagoon entrance way when we have used the pool during the day. Other than that, the construction has not been noticed by my group.

Is it a "cabana" or one of those 2 beach chairs that have an "awning" over it?

In my mind a cabana is like a tent w/4 poles supporting it....thanks.

Ok guys, I admit it, the jackhammers are real loud today. We are still enjoying ourselves though! The characters are out with their Halloween costumes on and the staff are real accommodating

Is the jackhammer noise bad everywhere you go outside? All pool areas as well as beach? Just trying to set my expectations, as we arrive in one week.

We returned last Saturday and for the most part it was heaven! I thought the construction noise was loudest and most noticed near cabanas 1-4. In fact, they were drilling last Friday to add more umbrellas and they hit a gas line, ooops. If you sit closer to AMA AMA or near the towel cananas it is minimal. We thought the best seats in the house were 5 chaises by a small jacuzzi up a walkway across from the Pau Hana room. It was shady, quiet and felt like our own private island! Oh I could go on and on......

Hope you both are enjoying Aulani as much as DW and I did 7 weeks ago! Any pics you can post will be appreciated. If either of you get a chance to try Roy's restaurant near Aulani, it will be worth your while. We liked it much better than Ama Ama! There is also a small grocery store across the road from Aulani back behind what looks like a jewelry store. The intersection leads back to a condo and there are two small restaurants there as well (a taco place and a BBQ place). There are pre-made and ready made QS type food items at the grocery store that we kept in the room for snacks. The two restaurants aren't there for their ambience but the food was good and very reasonably priced. Have fun!

I did not notice the jackhammer noise by the beach mostly by the main pool. They have closed the main entrance to the beach and created a new one while they are doing construction in that area. I will try to post some pics.

Just checking in to see how the jackhammers were coming along this week! Is anyone there now? I'm trying not to worry about it for our Saturday arrival, but it's hard not to.

Just got back and can concur with what most folks have said. The construction is mostly noticable in the section by the cabana's. We noticed the contruction was widing in the week we were there. They had put up more walls and things down towards the beach.

We did have cabana #4 but did it on the weekend when there wasn't much construction going on.
