Ko Olina, where Four Seasons Hotel is located, is surrounded by a lagoon, so even small children can enter the beautiful sea. There are a lot of small fishes in the shallows, so it is fun to even just walk around in the water.
There was a shower by the beach.
Ko Olina is a resort area, so it is very neatly arranged. There is a gate, so it is very safe. On weekends, the local people come to the beach and the parking lot is very busy. Recently, the entrance monitor informs the parking availability, so it seems a little better. There are golf courses, beaches, and luau shows, so you can have a good time in the hotel premises.
Staff and guests
The staff were very attentive. As soon as they noticed me carrying luggage, they came over to me and gave me a hand right away. The hotel was filled with Aloha spirit.
There were guests from all over the world staying. There were many couples and people who were attending weddings staying as well. There were not many guests with children.
Access from the airport was good. There are many people who think that it is far from Waikiki, but I think that it is not particularly far because it takes only about 20-30 minutes by car. A shuttle bus to Ko Olina also leaves from the airport, and a shuttle car for the Four Seasons Hotel will pick you up if you make a reservation, but you will need to pay money. There seems to be a dedicated helicopter between the hotel and the airport. If you rent a car, there is a shopping mall along the way. For convenience, there are coffee shops and ice cream shops within walking distance from the hotel. There are restaurants where you can eat breakfast, and there are restaurants for lunch and dinner. Even without a car, there is a free shuttle that runs around Ko Olina every 30 minutes, so it is convenient.

I had a nice stay at this hotel. I have absolutely no complaints. I was particularly surprised when I left my sunglasses in the room after leaving, there was a cleaner set beside it. It was very kind of them to do such thing. When I went out in the evening and returned to my room, the sofa which could become a bed as well, was changed to a bed, and the water that was in the cafe bar was placed at the side of each beds. Service was great and it is a very nice 5 star hotel.
