My husband won a sweepstakes trip to Hawaii, 3 days at the Trump Waikiki, including some very nice amenities for 3 days. Of course, no one from the east coast goes to Hawaii for a "long weekend", so we have turned our good fortune into a 15 day vacation. From O'ahu we plan to go to the Big Island and stay two nights in the Kilauea Military Camp. We have stayed here before and love it. Then onto the Kona side. Our two college age sons will be coming with us. We are thinking of the new Marriott Courtyard that was the King Kamehemeha Beach resort because of the proximity to Kailua-Kona for 3 days. We have stayed at the Hilton before and I am sort of in the "been there, done that" mode. From there we will go to Maui for 8 days. Any thoughts for the Kona side of the Big Island. We are really looking to see the sights again, enjoy the town areas, take the tour to Mauna Kea, etc. We will enjoy beach time at the Hyatt on Ka'anapali Beach. Any suggestions are more than welcomed.
We REALLY did win a trip to Hawaii!
