As far as life jackets, are you talking about near the beach, or out in a boat? Do your children know how to swim?

The book I bought at Costco is called "Maui Revealed" , fourth edition by Andrew Doughty and you can buy it on Amazon - they are out of new copies but plenty of older ones for sale. Seriously, I was only sorry that I hadn't done my homework before I went to Maui and winged it. They list beaches that are easy swims and also places that are better for more advanced swimmers. My kids used noodles and flippers snorkeling, but I would have felt better if they had on lifejackets or some variation on that. Its great to be able to concentrate on viewing the fish and not on just staying afloat.....

fyi- For any Maui westin people, there is a 50% off sale at travelocity now if you book a flight too. A sub $200/nt room might make that $80 meal doable

Aloha

I've stayed at the Westin and it was really nice and not run down or filthy..why would anyone allow to stay in a room like that and not make a phone call to the GM or Front Desk?
(friend could of been upgraded to a suite or comped if she let them know)
Been going to Maui since the 70's and it is expensive but it doesn't have to be..
Costco is a great place to get breakfast stuff, drinks and gas..
Shrimp trucks are a wonderful thing around the island and fresh fruit abound.
I really don't like those Maui guide books..you can get so much info off of this site and others..
There are great deals in the islands and the Westin is a great place to stay and the kids love it.

Ashley, I know people would be happy to help you, but you might get more responses if you do two things: first, start a new thread with a title like "Hawaii Honeymoon on a Budget", then also put in the post about how much you're willing to spend for each night's hotel.
