Enjoy a free shuttle pick up at various hotels throughout Waikiki on it's way to the Hilo Hatti Flagship store. The open air bus provides a breezy ride, along with the driver's friendly comentary and history about the area. Upon arriving we were informed that we may be fortunate enough to see Hawaii 50 celebrity Taylor Wiley (Kamekona) along with... More

Hilo Hattie's is a tourist establishment on all of the islands now. They are a little spendy, but they do have a good selection of aloha shirts, mu'umu'us, t-shirts, and other items such as caps, jewelry, hair accessories, painted silk scarfs, even aloha shirt pattern dog collars. If you are looking to bring back clothing items for family, you can... More

You might use the free HH shuttle from Waikiki as a mode of transportation up and down Ala Moana, but the price you will pay is a trip through their retail store. Very expensive and mostly HH aloha-wear. If you are in the market for an aloha shirt, we found an infinitely more varied selection at any of several thrift... More

Basically a high end tourist store. The snack bar at the back of the store was very reasonably priced. If there, try the waffle dogs, and dole whip, yum.

Very big store but mostly all clothes. And all the clothes are the same over and over. I was super excited to go here for souvenirs and I barley bought anything. They also had a roach in one of the display cases.

The free shuttle leaves from various pick-up/drop-off points in Waikiki, usually every 30-40 mins depending on traffic. It is an open trolley, therefore great for taking pics as it passes by many attractions. Tip: Sit on the opposite side to the driver to get pics of Waikiki beach and King Kamehameha and other attractions along the route. If you sit... More

The quintessential tourist gift shop. The sales people are friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a place to buy souvenirs, especially clothing, they have a large selection. It is a large store and has lots of touristy things to buy at touristy prices. But if you're shopping for bargains you shouldn't go to Hawaii anyway. It doesn't have a... More

On our trip to Hawaii, last week, we booked an Expedia tour to "Oahu, Arizona, Pearl Harbor City" on the Roberts Hawaii bus. We had a lovely tour of Honolulu, Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial. The tour alone was $35 per person but we selected the tour with "Deluxe Lunch" for $50 per person. At the end of the... More

Cant go wrong with Hilo Hattie's. Love this place. We made two stops at this store. We bought several 99 cent calendars and had them shipped home along with several others items. Items arrived back home in 3 days. Don't forget to print out a $10.00 coupon on the web. Aloha

If you're in the market for Hawaiian clothing, shirts, sandals, coffee, and macadamia nut treats, this could be your one stop shop for these and more. We came off our cruise ship and, when they noticed our cruise line bag, we were greeted with a shell Lei and a place to have some cold water or fruit drink to cool... More
