I’ve visited there a lot.  The resort is gorgeous, and huge.  My favorite part is the lagoon, which allows great and safe snorkeling.  I always see a bride or two while I’m there, and they always look thrilled 🙂 

I don’t know if you’ve seen the chapel, but it’s pretty tiny.  I assume that with a DW, you’d have a small guest list, so just be aware of it.

My grandparents go about once a year, and my grandmother won’t stay anywhere else.  But we always stay in the condos.  I haven’t seen the hotel rooms in a long time, but I would bet they’re gorgeous.

The last time I was there myself was last May, and it looked great. 

What did the reviews say?

People are picky.  But, the staff is phenomenal, and if there’s anything you dislike, just ask.  

Just do me a favor and scold anyone you see teasing those poor parrots in the lobby.  People are so rude.

I stayed there on my honeymoon because friends of our stayed there on their honeymoon. They loved it but I hated it. I think it ruined my Hawaii experience actually. BUT… I think it is all about what you like. 

It is just too big for me.  I didnt want to fight crowds on my vacation or take trams etc. And I found the service to be pretty bad too. Check-in took hours. Getting our car took 20+ minutes. The room was okay (totally passable) but not great and half the time we called for things, they never showed. 

Nightlife there was non existint. But I get that many people staying there are families and everyone gets up super early to play outside etc. but DH and I am the type that would want to find a bar to hang out at and make friends.

True, there is no nightlife. Oahu and Maui have that. The big island is the biggest, but because of the landscape, there isn’t the city life that you find on Oahu or Maui.
