Mikrotik is great, provided you want to take time to learn the 

Ubiquiti have two offerings here:

* EdgeRouter kit - based on Vayata, but with a nice GUI that'll suit 
most people's basic needs.  Use the GUI if you want to, use the command 
line if you don't.

* UniFi USG (Unified Security Gateway) - this is almost entirely a GUI 
product (at least it's intended to be) but it integrates with the rest 
of the UniFI management stack so it's _really_ pretty to work with and 
easy to manage.   You'd buy a USG, your choice of access points from the 
UniFi range and a CloudKey.

I don't have a USG (I use an EdgeRouter Lite), but the rest of the 
management looks like this:
