Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club Resort Review

My family has just returned from our first trip to Hawaii in 4 years! Returning to Hawaii after a long break due to travel restrictions was incredible.

On this two week holiday, we decide to return to our favourite resort on Oahu, Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club. From the moment we checked in, we knew we had made the right decision.

About Marriott’s KOBC

Marriott’s Ko Olina beach club is located in the resort area of Ko Olina on the west side of Oahu. The resort is oceanfront and located on a beautiful man made lagoon.

Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club is the perfect place for families visiting Oahu. Guests can choose to stay in studios, one bedroom villas and two bedroom villas. Each room type has a lanai. The one and two bedroom villas have full kitchens.

The Marriott Ko Olina has three pools, several hot tubs and a waterslide. There are plenty of comfortable lounge chairs throughout the resort for guest use. There are also lounge chairs on the beach and the option of reserving a cabana with an umbrella.

Marriott Ko Olina Highlights

We had many incredible moments during our stay. One of the most memorable was our night at the Fia Fia Luau.

The Fia Fia Luau takes place every Tuesday on the property. A pig is roasted on site at the resort ,the great lawn is transformed with seating and the outdoor stage brings the most talented performers. Chief Seilu puts on a funny and touching show. The cultural performance is moving and memorable. The food and drinks served at Fia Fia is delicious and plentiful.

Our entire family loved this evening and plan on attending every time we visit the resort. The Fia Fia Luau can be booked through the concierge at the resort. I highly recommend booking your tickets before arriving to avoid any disappointment.

More highlights included the daily activities on site. We loved participating in the slide races, the corn hole tournaments and yoga on the beach. On Friday, my nieces thoroughly enjoyed the visit from mermaid Kariel. They listened to Kariel read them a story and swam with her.

The activities team at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club work hard to make your stay fun. They are professional, kind, and approachable. The activities and fitness schedule has something for everyone.

The Villas

I absolutely appreciate how well equipped the villas are at Marriott’s KOBC. Our two bedroom villa had everything we needed (and more) to make our stay comfortable. From pots and pans, baking dishes to rice cookers, it was easy to prepare and enjoy a home cooked meal while in Hawaii.

Our villa had a king bed in the master and a queen bed and sofa bed in the second bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room. The villa had two bathrooms and a large living room and dining room, and full kitchen. We also enjoyed our large lanai.

The villas at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club are currently being updated with new furniture. I trust that the new decor will be beautiful.


My family had the most incredible time at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else on Oahu. I know we will continue to return to our home away from home.

To book your stay at this resort, you can book directly on the Marriott site, you can use your Marriott Bonvoy points or you can rent from an owner.

If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, I highly recommend you stay at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club. It is the perfect place to relax and take in all that is Hawaii.

Tell me, have you traveled to Hawaii before? What island did you visit?



  1. Wow, what amazing photos. Looks like such a great place. This would be a great family vacation spot for my family and I.

  2. That lagoon is incredible! Looks like it has always been there. This would make a perfect second honeymoon spot.

  3. This looks amazing. My husband and I would really love to go to Hawaii for our next big anniversary. I’d love to stay at this resort.

  4. Wow, this looks like a beautiful resort, and like you all had a great time. Will definitely check out your other stays.

  5. Our favourite is Aulani, right next door. It was fun to read about your experience at the Marriott, our family often wondered what the neighbouring resorts were like!

    1. I’ve stayed at Aulani as well. It’s great but I feel that the Marriott is a better fit for our family. It’s not as busy, has so much space and many more chairs available. I think it’s worth giving it a try on your next vacation in Ko Olina.

    1. The luau is such a special treat. It’s great that you can stay on site to enjoy it too. It’s such a great resort, I highly recommend it.

  6. Wow, what a beautiful place! It looks like your family had a lot of fun! Thank you for sharing, and letting me dream that I was traveling for a minute. 🙂
