gottcha.  we’re going to maui, but we’re renting a condo.  if we decided on a hotel/motel/b&b we were going to book honua kai.  the only negative i heard about the hyatt on maui is that it is located on a very popular stretch of beach along with the sheraton and others.  so the beach is always crowded.  that’s all i know.  a friend tells me the luau show is fun there. 

a friend of mine stayed at kaui’s grand hyatt and loved it.

i totally gave you the wrong place on maui.  we were going to book a condo at honua kai (so much cheaper than going through the hotel and less fees involved) but the condo we wanted went too quickly.  the other place we considered was this: http://www.hooilohouse.com/ it’s a b&b.

Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island is also quite nice, and there can be some pretty good deals (Jetsetter on Gilt has a flash sale coming up).

I just stayed at Kauai Beach Resort in January and it was amazing! It’s on Kauai, which is my favorite island. It’s in the middle of the island which makes it easy to go visit the Northern shore and Southern shores without being too long of drives. I went mountain tubing while I was there and it was AWESOME! You should really look into that. For Oahu, I like Hilton Hawaiian Village if you want to be near all the tourists and night life and Turtle Bay is really nice if you want something nice and quiet. I think the Hyatt on Maui is where my parents always stay when they go there. And they go a lot and have always had an amazing time there.

It depends on what you want on Oahu…  Turtle Bay is on the north shore I believe, which will make for a good relaxed getaway.  If you wanted to include a little more nightlife, stay in Waikiki.  

 

OH, and another nice relaxing type place on the west side of Oahu is Ko’olina

Turtle bay is extremely overpriced for what it is, and it’s also in a pretty inconvenient location, unless you plan on staying only on the north shore and not exploring very much. Don’t get me wrong, though, north shore is (to me) by far the most appealing area of the island (we’re moving back up soon and I CANNOT wait).

But, there are tons of really nice hotels/resorts in Waikiki that I would probably go to if I were visiting, simply for the fact that they’re a lot nicer, you’re going to be around a wide variety of places to eat and a fun nightlife, yet you’re free to go explore, so definitely rent a car and get out of town to go do things, like spend at least an entire day on north shore, for example. Take another day to go over to the eastside, rent kayaks and paddle out to the Moks in Kailua, hang out at Lanikai (this is where we currently live), eat at some good restaurants (yelp it), etc. Westside is pretty cool as well. Anyway, just thought I’d throw out a few reccomendations.. hope you have a great time when you come!
