Hi Lesley

We had a great time. Because of the location of the accommodation on the big island, a car was essential and we managed to see more than the usual I expect (I can get lost with a nav-man!). The accommodation was good but we were on the road a lot so it became just a place to sleep rather than relax for any length of time.

As it turns out, we were there just before the world famous Kona Iron Man and Kona itself would have been bedlam – although if you like that sort of thing then – great. Staying out of town suited us.

I did like the accommodation in Waikiki – Embassy Suites on Waikiki Beach Walk. The staff were fantastic – nothing was too much trouble. The proximity to the beach and shopping was great. The area has been recently redeveloped and it was just a great spot. Having breakfast as part of the price was an added bonus.
