      Where else to stay in Oahu

      Oahu Feb 3, 2015 at 5:11 PM

      Hi. We have booked to stay in Oahu for 13 nights. We have been to Maui before and are quite happy just to explore Oahu this time. We will spend at least half the time in Waikiki as we like to shop and bike and intend to do a tour or two. We would like to spend 4-5 nights or so somewhere else on the island. We are in our fifties but are fit and love the beach, snorkeling and walks.
      I have looked at Ko Olina which looks lovely but maybe too resorty for what we want this trip. We could visit though as i have read the lagoons are lovely. I have been looking at Haleiwa area. Is this area really for young people who want to surf? Is the road a good one to travel on? We are happy to hire a car to get around. Any other suggestions for somewhere else to stay on Oahu would be very welcome. Thanks

    • Best sport bar to watch NBA All-Star game

      Hi guys,

      I'll be on Oahu on Feb 15th, when NBA All-Start game commences in NY at 3:30pm.
      Could you please advice a sport bar, somewhere in Honolulu or Kailua, where I can watch it live? It will be broadcasted on TNT channel.

      From the web-search, RoundTable Pizza and Armbar Sports Bar and Grill seems good. Any better options?
      Your help is much appreciated, I absolutely cannot afford missing this game.

      we are travelling to Maul from April 17 to 25th. We thought Kihei would be a good location as far as being fairly accessible to other points on Maui. Can anyone give us recommendations on either a hotel or Condo location. It is overwhelming looking at all the choices on VRBO. There are many that look good but you never know.

      My extended family group (13 of us) would like to travel to Waikiki for Easter 2016. Does anyone know of any accommodation options (other than hotels) that might be able to take our whole group? One 5 year old and the rest adults or young adults. We wouldn't have to be in the same building necessarily - nearby would be okay. Ideally with a pool and some self-catering options, but anything considered.

      Two island stay

      Hawaii (State of) Jan 1, 2015 at 1:30 PM

      Am now considering an Hawaiian vacation with partial stay at the Big Island finishing up in Maui. I can get a really good rate at a hotel on the Big Island because of my employment but have heard that Maui is very lush and tropical which is why I want to experience that island as well. My head is swimming because I'm trying to figure out how to cost effectively travel to the big island, then transfer to Maui and then go back home from Maui. Because of the better hotel rate I can secure on the Big Island maybe it's better to stay there for the entire visit and take a day tour to Maui. Is this a feasible option in a days time frame? Any advice at all will be very helpful as I have never traveled to Hawaii before. Probably will spend 7-10 nights total mid to late April. To complicate and confuse things further, I also just read that Kaua'i is the most tropical of all the islands, is this true?

    • 5/6 nights in Hawaii - Honolulu, Maui or both?

      Hawaii (State of) Dec 23, 2014 at 8:28 AM

      Hi,

      I'm probably going to combine a mileage run with a holiday in Hawaii in July.

      I've never been to Hawaii.

      Honolulu would seem an obvious choice, as I'd like to see the capital and the famous Waikiki Beach. There are also some attractions and museums that I think I'd like to visit. Finally, being a foodie, I'm sure there'll be plenty of options.

      However, I'm afraid that spending 5 or 6 nights in Honolulu may not be particularly relaxing. I wouldn't mind spending a few days just sitting by a beach or a pool without too many people around.

      What would you recommend? Do you think spending some time in both island would be mad considering the short amount of time after so much flying to get there? I can easily get an inbound flight to HNL and a return from OGG though.

    • Whale watching

      Maui Dec 17, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hyatt Place on Waikiki Beach

      Hi, this is our first time to Honolulu/Waikiki and after going through many hotels on the website, we have zoomed down to the Hyatt Place.

      Is this a good choice? Based on previous guests at the hotel, they were all very happy with their stay and despite it being a little off the centre of Waikiki's happenings, it still got pretty good rated.

      Would love to hear some opinions from anyone who knows about this hotel before we book it. We will be staying 1-14 April 2015.

She loves the beach, hubby loves sightseeing and I love shopping! Will we find ll these there? As we come from a very hot and humid country like Malaysia, we would like our vacations in a cooler climate. Will the weather in April be hot and humid?

      Our other alternative is to spend our holidays in San Diego which should be cooler perhaps....but we have been there 3 times already.

    • Stay close to Haleakala or drive from Lahaina? Jan weather?

      Maui Nov 5, 2014 at 2:20 PM

      Hello, We are touring Maui for 8 days. Here is our plan until now:

      December 28th: Landing in Kahului at 10:30 AM

      December 28th: Drive around West Maui

      December 29th: Drive to Hana

      December 29th and 30th: Stay in Hana

      December 31st: Drive beyond Hana, and the back side of Haleakala

      Dec 31st night: Stay near Haleakala or Lahaina?

      Rest: Stay in Lahaina.

      On the drive back from Hana on 31st, our plan is to stop overnight somewhere close to Haleakala National Park to catch the sunset on 31st or sunrise on Jan 1st. One advantage of staying close is that we don't have to wake up early and drive for 3 hours to catch the sunrise. But on the flip side if the weather is bad on 1st morning, we will have no choice to pick a different day. How is the weather generally in early January? Do you think its better to stay in Lahaina and pick a day to drive up Haleakala depending on the weather?

      Thanks.

      We will be staying in a resort near Waikoloa Village during the March 20 - April 5th, 2015 time frame. According to literature, this is near the end of the whale siting season. Would you think we should forgo any whale excursions and concentrate on other activities? I am concerned that it may not be a good investment at that time of year. THanks

      Budget for one month...

      Kauai Oct 26, 2014 at 1:29 PM

      How much should I budget for a one month stay? (not including acommodation).

      There will be two of us and we will be dining out some of the time, but will be just as happy to buy in food and cook 'at home'. Activity-wise, we'll be doing a lot of hiking etc and a little souvenir hunting.

      I realise this is a fairly open question, but what i'm after is a 'You won't die of starvation if you bring this much' type answer to use as a jumping off figure.

      Thanks in advance for what I'm sure will be perfectly helpful answers!
