Thinking about going there sometime in the near future......... have a free air ticket to use up (and yes i can use it to hawaii)

Never been there, but doing a little research on them.


Ill be mainly playing golf, the other person that would be going would be mostly interested in beaches.


From what im reading, it seems like Kauai, maui, or the big island might be the best? I am really against oahu because i dont want it to be all crowded, i want a nice relaxing time and to play on a course that isn't so packed that they dont mind if i go off by myself. any suggestions?

I'm not sure about golfing accommodations but Maui is amazing. Great beaches, great food, and very kickback. Don't go to Oahu it's L.A. on a raft.

Been to all of them...Maui is by far my favorite. We go every year. Specifically stay and golf in southern Maui. Makena and Wailea are the best spots.

By the way stay at the Fairmont or the Four Seasons when there...both our favorites, nothing else comes close.

Kuai is very high end with not many amenities...its where all the stars stay and the most remote. I thought Maui gave a nice blend of gorgeuos countryside, awesome beaches and rain forrests. I'd go to Kuai for a honeymoon and Maui to golf and play at the beach.

I've only been to Maui and it was amazing. It's hard to imagine a bad Island to visit though. Leaving sucked we about missed the shuttle to the air port because we drank to much by the pool. I got to Salt Lake and it was cold, when I got to Billings it was snowing and I was still in my swim trunks.

Maui's my favorite.

Oahu was too built up for my taste. Kauai was absolutely awesome, I just wish there were a few more places to eat/go out to. Maui wasn't as crowded as Oahu, but a bit more built up than Kauai. It was a good blend.

I don't think you can go wrong with either Maui or Kauai.

I've been to Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island.

Depends on what you like.

Oahu is just like a mini LA, but good parties.

Molokai is pretty barren, but is known for it's coral, which is cool for scuba.

Maui has a pretty good mix of them all - you can go to Molokai, they've got luaus, and shopping and good restaurants. Stay at the Hyatt Regency and when it gets dark take some girls to the grotto by the private beach. During the day, the back end of the grotto has a sweet waterfall for jumping.

The Big Island is more adventurous. That is, stuff like wilderness excursions, chopper tours, para sailing/gliding.

Hope that helps.

Maui by far.

Kaanapali Hyatt is my favorite resort. Good value, great beach/pool, easy access to both Wailea & Kapalua for golf, walking distance to Whaler's Village for bars/Restaurants (along the beach), good snorkeling nearby, etc.

The main four 'touristy' things to do are all great & don't feel tourist trappy....
Iao Valley park, Road to Hana, Sunrise Mt. bike ride down Haleakala & Catamaran snorkeling trip to Lanai.

Hyatt usually has good 'breakfast included' package deals. Upgrade to concierge level if you can. Also, if you are renting a car...insist on a convertible.

Have fun!

Is that the Hyatt in Maui?

I thought it was in Lahaina...

Nevertheless, I concur. In Hawaii, the Hyatt is the place to stay.

Yes....Same place. Forgot to even mention how close it is to Lahaina as well.

I've been on 3 land based trips to Hawaii. Twice to Hyatt Regency Ka'anapali & once to Waikiki. Also took a NCL cruise with stops @ Oahu, Hilo (Big Island) & Kauai.

The Hyatt @ Ka'anapali is just about perfect IMO. Location/Value/Service/Amenities can't be beat all things considered.

That's the the hotel that has the pool bar in the cave right? I'm pretty sure that is the one I stayed in. I thought the hotel nearest to Whaler's Village had better beaches the the one I stayed at just because during high tide they seemed to have more beach. The snorkeling out side our place was great though. Saw turtle's and a tons of fish. Pretty much everything I saw on a boat tour that cost me $100 bucks :)

Some advise about snorkeling rent good gear that doesn't allow water to go down the air tube at a shop and take them with you if you go on a tour. Not all boats have the good gear and water gets into your gear. I forgot the gear I rented and ended up with some crap stuff and swallowed a ton of the water. It drains you of energy faster.

Also stayed in Hilo and Keahou. Much more relaxed. 1000 times better.

Next time we go we are going to go to Maui or Kauai.

Been to the Big Island, Maui, and Kauai. For me, it's neck and neck between Maui and Kauai with Kauai just barely winning out. In my opinion, they are very similar in terms of natural beauty and beaches (although, Maui may have a slight edge on beaches, but they are more crowded).

What it really comes down to is "lifestyle". If you want to "party" and people watch on the beach, go to Maui. If you want to enjoy quieter beaches and a more laid-back time, go to Kauai. I have a wife and a kid, so Kauai is more our speed. But - they are both awesome. My favorite place on earth. :)

I lived a time in Kauai and visited it often. There are so many hidden places to explore if you know where to look. Great Golfing. Loved golfing at the Lagoons. That 18th hole was a joke.

...but Maui is bar far the funnest IMO for the active experience.

I ran into the Raiderettes one year at the Maui Mall when they were doing their tour. They picked one person out of the crowd to get up and do some dances with them. Of course they picked the good looking guy with the bronco hat on! :twokisses:wiggle:

On second thought. Why don't you visit me while I'm studying abroad this fall at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

What are you studying at Maastricht Smurf? Its a lovely old city you'll like it. close to Belgium and Germany as well.The people in Southern Holland have a kind of joie de vivre and enjoy the good things of life. Amsterdam is about 2 hours 15 mintues drive north.

As for Hawaii, my other home, every island has its unigue charms. Those that say to avoid Oahu though, simply don't know the island beyond the Waikki downtown area. Yes the traffic has gotten bad in certain parts on the south coast, but a little timing when driving around can avoid the bulk of it. The north shore beaches are hard to beat. Oahu has some fantasitc jungle trails as well and the drive from the north shore to Kailua along the windward coast is one of the most beautiful anywhere in the islands.

Maui is majestic from Hana and Haleakula to Kaanapali. Kauai is very laid back and beautiful as well. Similar in size to Oahu but far less people. Waimea Canyon and Na Pali cliffs are stunning as is the long hike around the North west coast where no roads are.

The Big Island has a very vibrant natural energy that is hard to miss. Not as many great beaches as the other islands as it is the newest one, but still some nice beachs around. Perhaps the special vibe on the Big Island is from the volcanic energy ... Madame Pele they say :-) .... Some really great nature and much larger than all the other islands combined.

But all of Hawaii is a great place. Making a point to spend a fair amount of time on all the islands, Molokai and Lanai as well, is a very worthwhile adventure. The color green in the tropical plants there is electic making green leaves on the mainland look rather drab by comparison. Also, all the colors are heightened by the brilliant sun almost over head and the incrediblly blue/torquoise ocean.

You typically have to work hard to have a bad time in Hawaii.

Way too commercial. McDonalds and Burger King on every corner isn't my idea of an island gettaway. The Hyatt has liqour stores in them so you can pick up booze at the resort at a resonable cost.

We stayed at the Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort, a bit expensive but nice and secluded.
Definately make a stop for dinner at Mama's Fish House in Paia (on the road to Hana) and hit Lahaina market for trinkets and shopping.

Went to Oahu and Maui last summer. Maui was awesome. Stayed at the Hyatt which was great. Was there 6 nights and got free buffet breakfast for the entire stay, which is well worth it. Stayed at the Hilton in Honolulu, which was nice, right on Waikiki Beach. Great view of Diamondhead from the room too. But Honolulu itself is too urban, and full of Japanese tourists. And I mean FULL. Iíve never been to Japan, but I honestly canít imagine the feeling being much different. They are rude and a lot of shops have Japanese help, and they most definitely take care of their own first. And donít get me started how theyíre all over Pearl Harbor. It really is like being a foreigner in your own country.

My first experience in Hawaii was on Oahu, but I didn't think it was all that bad (to me anyway). Had friends and family of my wife's there, but rented a condo in Makaha plantation- much less tourists & quiet (Other than the peacocks) as opposed to the windward side of the island. However it was about 45min- hour to get into Honolulu or Haleiwa (Check out Matsumoto's shaved ice, its the **** up there). Anyway, my wife (having grown up there) would suggest Kauai or Maui.

Anyway, we found our rental on this site:

Depends what youre looking for.

If you want the country, the surf, some sights but also want to have the nightlife available, then Oahu is the place to go.

Just rent a North Shore home on the beach and kick it at Pipeline, Sunset or Waimea. Lots of bodies, lots of sun, lots of waves.

Its about 45 minutes to an hour to town, in case you want any kind of cuisine you can imagine, or nightlife.


Maui is probably the most picturesque island. You can see other islands from there and its beautiful. Upcountry has some unreal realestate and is horse country. Also, Lahaina is a stunning rustic little village of art shops, galleries, eateries and shoreline boardwalk style mainstreet.

Maui is also the best place for whale watching. Haleakala is king of the mountains on Maui, and many people drive to the top to get above the clouds and watch the sun rise in the mornings. DO NOT DO THE BIKE TOURS IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE. I would only suggest it if you ride all the time.

If not, does doing cartwheels down the mountainside sound fun?
Lastly, if you dig big wave riding........Should I say....the BIGGEST wave riding...... JAWS is there in Maui is there for those who like to risk their lives at tow in surfing 70 plus foot waves.

Kauai is where my wife was raised and is definitely the most laid back. It is the most underdeveloped of the main islands. Unreal hiking and trails is there for the adventurer. Also, it brags notorious surf if youre an avid surfer.
Kauai is for the person who likes to cruise the beach by themselves, or with a babe. (or boob if youre a girl)

Lastly, the Big Island is the big gear fishing mecca of the islands in KONA. Waimea is an absolutely beautiful town in the heart of the island of Hawaii, and Hilo is an old vintage town of not much to do but look around. Also Kilauea is erupting there, so volcano tours can be done. Watching the volcano erupt at night is a lifetime experience.

Hunting is also there and the biggest ranchlands on the islands at Parker Ranch.


The best town? Where I live. Kailua, Oahu.;D



BTW, you can fly to the other islands for anywhere from $30 to $100 and rent a car to cruise another island. ITS WELL WORTH THE MONEY, maybe even spend a night or two there.

Maui was my Fav by far but we did not get to go to Kawai(sp?) which I hear is awesome.

Stay on the west side of the island, we got a great deal on the Ritz on the north west side and it rained at the same time every day the locals said that there was some current that caused it.

If you go you must break the car rental rules and go to the 7 falls of 7 something, that must be one of the greatest places on earth. We also went to a spot further north east that was amazing.

If I ever go back I would like to see Kawai(sp?)

Also you have to go to Pearl Harbor and see the Arizona Memorial. It is really a humbling experience.

Good luck.

Kauai didn't even seem like a real place. It was too green. It wasn't real. You drive to the middle of the island and there is a grand canyon with emerald green vegetation and waterfalls. surreal.

I promised myself if I ever fall in love I will take her there, maybe forever.
