    Any comments about this resort - my fiance and I are hoping to go to this resort and get married at Paradise Cove with the Luau - My only concern is reasonable restaurants - unsure what kind of budget is reasonable for 2 weeks for meals - we won't eat fancy everyday - maybe twice and the luau - we will likely rent a car so we can drive to various locations - but we don't want to have to do that everyday. I hope someone can help = thanks in advance :)

      JW Marriott is a beautiful resort but pricey. And from last time we were in Oahu, we found it to be quite a distance from Waikiki. Get the book "Oahu Revealed" from Amazon. It is a great guide to restaurants and everything about Oahu.

        Thanks Jtds - Yes I think we are going to go with either the Miramar or The Pacific Beach - my grandmother took my mom and I to the Miramar in 1985 and I really enjoyed it (I was 15 though so Hawaii was cool all by itself) - it is budget tho - so is the Pacific Beach but that is okay since here we are getting married in Hawaii - so I can deal with a 3+

            I loved this resort. We actually almost had our wedding at Lanikuhonua and stayed at Ihilani, but because it was so far away from Waikiki area, we decided against it (traffic is horrible also). Its a very quite area though, which is nice. The resort has one reasonable restaurant, but Ko Olina has several reasonable restaurants as well. Its a great place to be as long as you aren't looking to go to the Waikiki/Downtown Honolulu area.
