    Assuming by Honolulu you mean the JW Marriott Ihilani at Ko Olina... you are in for a treat!

    My wife and I spent a week there and it was wonderful.  The pool area is very nice with limited 'cabana'-like chairs that are on a first booked first served basis.  Depending on the heat they can go fast but we managed to have them for 2 of the 3 days we spent around the pool.  It just adds one more flair of enjoyment for that relaxing atmosphere (says the irish boy).

    Just two lagoons down (about 1/4 mile maybe) is the Vacation Club which had massage huts on the beach of the lagoon and you can stop by there to expand your restaurant options if you feel the need, although we were too engrossed by the great ones on the JW property.

    The location is about a half hour out of downtown Honolulu which makes it much more quiet and romantic.  Downtown and Waikiki are easily accessible though not sure if you will have a car (making it easier I felt).

    If you are able, having the elaborate breakfast buffet offered at the hotels restaurant is not to be missed and worth the cost.

    We have stayed here twice and it is beautiful for being in the heart of the city.  Take time to climb Diamond Head and take the time to go out on a Long Boat paddle trip.  You can  make arrangements right on the beach across from the hotel.  

    If you want another place on the other side of town and outside of the busy city go to the J.W. Ihilani or see if you can get a room at the Ko Olina resort.  This is the time share but they will still rent rooms if available.  These are the most romantic spots!  If you have a car go to the Valley of the Temples on your way to the Polynesian Cultural Center.  Have fun!

    The hotel is an absolute delight.  But it is not anywhere near Honolulu.  It is about 25 miles away.  If you are looking for peace and tranquility you will find it here.  But if your looking for a lot of activity go to Waikiki.  They have the Marriott there.  perhaps you can split the trip and stay at both.  Enjoy!!

    The JW Marriott at Ko'Olina is fantastic.  I stayed there for a week last year (September).  The many restaurants are delicious, the grounds are beautifully landscaped, the pool is fantastic (salt water) and the beach is quiet and peaceful.  We stayed in a room overlooking the beach and had breakfast every morning on our balcony.  Also, the spa is fantastic.  If you want to enjoy some of their spa services you shouldn't wait till the last minute.  The hotel is away from the city - which is nice.  You will need a car.
