Have concerns about Maui/Kauai. Are they valid?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip (no kids) for early September for 10 nights. We went to the Big Island last year (3 nights Hilo, 5 nights Hilton Waikoloa Village) and for this year are considering 3 nights Honolulu and 7 nights Hapuna Beach Prince on the Big Island (well, the Mauna Kea would be our dream resort, but the price is prohibitive).

However, we are also considering other itineraries, perhaps including Kauai or Maui instead.

What we liked about the Big Island:

1) Relatively quiet and uncrowded; and
2) Hapuna Beach was beautiful (also uncrowded).

Fears about Maui:

1) Crowds (particularly at the beaches);
2) Choice of big, poor service, mass market resorts (Kaanapali) or paying insane amounts for Wailea hotels (though the Fairmont has special renovation rates). To be clear, we do not like (nor could we afford) something like the Four Seasons or Grand Wailea. But we've read stories about the Kaanapali resorts that make us nervous. We don't want to be fighting for seats by the pool or waiting in long lines.

Fears about Kauai:

1) Restaurant options;
2) Rainy?;
3) Beaches comparable to Hapuna or Mauna Kea.

Given the time of year we'd be going (early September), any input on whether our concerns about Maui and Kauai are particularly valid/relevant?

We are looking to split up the trip between two islands at the most with a 6 night/4 night or 7 night/3 night split.

Thanks!

David
