I didn’t know there was a kids club. I have seen so many facebook fans club for different hotels. You can join the one for that hotel and keep contact with either members or fans who can give you more detail info.

No need for a pool in Hawaii :) They're both beautiful I like Mauna Kea a little more, even if you don't stay at Mauna Kea you need to go to their Luau, best in the Island.
