Where are the best, places to stay? That depends, do you want to be pampered or do you want to get lost in paradise and escape the crowds?
There are 100s of, places to stay, from romantic getaways to family friendly to rustic getaways The Best,place to stay, is the place that is the most central to your vacation style. If you’re the type that wants to have spa days and sit under your Cabana Sipping Mia Tai’s you not going to like this site so you might as well leave now.
If you absolutely need to stay in a hotel or business requires you to be central to Honolulu then these are the hotels I would recommend:
The royal hawaiian: Located Down town this is the original Waikiki hotel. There is something to be said for nostalgia.
Turtle bay: Located on the North Shore, they have Golf, Tennis, Horse back riding, Scuba, Snorkel, Jet ski and about 45 min from Waikiki so no crowds. This is the best place to re injure that expensive sports injury.
Ko Olina resort: West of Waikiki with peace and quiet with no one around. They have 3 man-made lagoons that are completely picture perfect.
Halekulani: Located Down Town they treat you like royalty. Your check in is done in your room. They even give you sunscreen, you wont want to leave. So go pamper yourself, you nambi pambi.
For those of you that want to experience more of the beauty that is Hawaii and less of the commercialism here are my recommendations for, places to stay:
Rent a house or condo and stay where you want and escape the crowds. Most of the rentals are on the windward side of the island. Here are some of the best sources for getting the best price.
Most of these need to be booked for a month at a time. Don’t let this scare you off call the owner and find out if they can rent for the times you need. You’ll be surprised that most are willing to work with you.Check the list of items included or available with the house. Most of them have snorkeling gear, boogie boards, surf boards and kayaks. This way you don’t have to rent them.These are my top picks for places to stay:
Reasons to stay in a house or condo instead of a hotel. Your own washing machine, a kitchen for when you get tired of eating out and more sq feet for the price so you’re not stepping over each other.
