I’m not sure where you’re seeing hurricane risks to Hawaii, it is my understanding that Hawaii rarely experiences hurricanes – and besides, both the Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons end on Nov 30, so it would be a rare event indeed for a hurricane to make landfall in December! 

But if you just really don’t want to do Hawaii, there are a bunch of places in the Caribbean, though few of the islands would be too difficult or expensive to do with kids.

Costa Rica might fit the bill, though I don’t know how far away you can get from the ‘touristy’ locations and still have golf available.

Toronto2014:  Unless you manage to somehow coincide with a once-in-a-century type weather event, I seriously doubt you’d end up spending 2 weeks in a hotel. December is pretty much peak season for Hawaii, and EVERYONE wants to go then (who wouldn’t want to escape frigid temps for a tropical paradise?)

Yes, it might rain – but tropical rains are very different than what you are probably used to. Plus with the way the islands’ terrain interacts with the ocean winds, half of each island is usually very dry, while the other side gets the rain (and thus is more jungle-like).

You run the risk of encountering bad weather ANYWHERE you go – but I suspect Hawaii will have a lower chance than a lot of other places.

While it’s true that there are a lot of “run of the mill” all inclusive resorts out there, there are also a lot of all-inclusive resorts that have an amazing culinary scene. So I wouldn’t rule out an all-inclusive completely.

 Have you considered St Lucia? It’s amazing how much this island resembles Bora Bora. On St  Lucia a lot of the hotels offer a share program, so you can use one of their sister hotels during your stay. This helps to prevent things from getting a little too dull.
