We had a trip booked for Aulani this summer but then since that was cancelled I rented out 150 points.

Also, when you sold your contract, did you strip them down to 0 or leave use year points on there? we have 300. Thanks!
People don't like Aulani for several reasons - I think the main reason is that it is a family resort so there are kids everywhere at all times - and very close to the adult only pool, too. It is hard to escape kid noise and chaos if you are looking for a quiet, adult-like vacation. It was perfect when we wanted to let the kids have free-reign without worry and we could have an afternoon relaxing as much as you can with kids on vacation.

There are several other options in the Ko'Olina area including the next door Four Seasons which is less noisy and bustling, but more expensive; and the Marriott Vacation club resort that is nearby that is much less expensive when renting from owners than is Aulani.

We loved Aulani as a 7 night stay or so when the kids were younger and our travelling friend group included younger kids, but now we have all adults and their add-ons. We'll typically spend just a few nights at Aulani because it's still fun and it's "home", but now we're more apt to Island Hop to the Big Island or Maui to do more exploring or stay a few nights here or there around Oahu to experience more than just the Ko'Olina area offerings. It depends on what type of vacation you want...
