      First time Hawaii visit

      Kauai Dec 1, 2016 at 11:32 AM

      Hello! We are visiting Hawaii for the first time and I am having some logistics problems !
      I have booked 5 nights at Disney's Aulani Resort on O'ahu... had too do that part first,
      rooms were disappearing. My question is:

      • Kauai before or after O'ahu?
      • Can we fly into Honolulu...then jump over to Kauai ( Hawaiin Air?) then fly directly

      back home from there, Kauai - Chicago? Is there a better/cheaper way to do this?

      • Most popular area of Kauai to stay in? East , West, North, or South? for walkability,

      restaurants, beaches, etc?

      Any other tips?

    • How far out from travel date do you book airfare ?

      Kauai Dec 7, 2016 at 6:51 PM

      I'm going to Kauai the beginning of May, and am comparing airfares now. How far out from the trip should I book in order to get the cheapest airfare ? I'm flying from the east coast. Thanks !

    • Accommodation Easter 2016 for group of 13

      by bobtheduck1 Online Now Jan 4, 2015 at 5:20 PM

      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.

      Waikiki Weather in April 2015

      by carolnsharmaine Online Now Nov 22, 2014 at 12:44 AM

      Hi, we are planning our very first trip to Hawaii from 1-14 April 2015, and will be travelling with our 2 1/2 year old daughter. 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.

    • Hyatt Regency Waikiki

      by Dean285 Online Now Aug 27, 2013 at 5:16 PM


      I have seen mixed reviews of this hotel with a lot of comments suggesting that the rooms are in major need of renovation. I currently have a reservation which is still within the cancellation window. Generally, I prefer Hyatt's because the status I have with the chain gives me some perks - although it doesn't look like I will be able to get a ocean view upgrade. I would still get access to the Regency Club. If you were choosing between the Hyatt Regency or Marriott Resort and Spa - what would be a better choice? It looks like I can get a room between 30-60 dollars less at the Marriott - depending on whether the resort fee will be charged or not. The booking site suggests it will be waived but not certain given some other wording.

      Hi! When we were in Waikiki last, we stayed in Outrigger Hotel. And right next to it there was an apt building for rent. We went in, looked at apartments, liked them, talked to the site manager, took his card.....and lost it. And I can't remember the name if that complex. Again, it's right next to Outrigger. Need help from someone local. We are looking to rent an apartment in that complex for a month next January-February.

      Hi All,

      We are travelling to Hawaii and staying in Waikiki next Monday 14th of September. There is 3 families (all related) consisting of 6 adults and 5 teenagers and 1 baby.

      What can people suggest about shopping. Where are the bargains. Where are the value for money food eateries.

      And for the guys where are the best places to grab a coldy.

      What places should we steer clear of?

      Basically after any advice you can offer. We will be doing the Pearl Harbour tour as I don't believe you can come to Hawaii without paying your respects.

      Also, are there certain streets or areas of Waikiki one should avoid? (We have something called "East Hastings" in downtown that is not a nice area ie drugs, homeless etc)
