I really enjoy Maui in May. If you are flying from seattle there are some great rates on Hawaiian air that time of year. Less than 800 bucks round trip for the two of you :)

We prefer September - but I just booked for May. Couldn't resist the great deals available right now. We've been in May a couple of times before and it's always been lovely.

In my humble opinion:

July, August, and September are too hot;

February, and March are peak whale watching times;

But, it's pleasant and uncrowded in October, November and most of December.

The weather in Hawaii is, relative to the mainland, really very consistent througout the year. A little hotter and drier in the summer, a little cooler and rainier in the winter. The vacation "seasons" are driven primarily by the weather on the mainland.

That being said, some of the best times to go are the so called shoulder seasons including late-April, May, Sept, Oct when the kids are in school and the weather on the mainland not too severe. Prices for flights and hotels are better and it's less crowded.

April is great - just avoid the week before and after Easter.

April is a great time, weatherwise - but can be crowded due to Spring Break and families taking holiday. Sometimes rates can be higher at some places due to the demand.

May is when we usually go, weather again is great! April, think June/July in WA weather!

Hop over to Hawaiian Airlines and look at fares - if you have any flexibility in your schedule at all you can save hundred by flying on an 'off' day. Rates are currently excellent!
