Trip Report

Our trip went very well due to the help from Tripadvisor. We were in Oahu 11/11/09 through 11/16/09.

After a 5 hour plane delay, we arrived later than expected. We had booked with ABC Limo for Melvin to pick us up. Notified him we would be arriving late. He was there waiting for us upon our arrival. He was very prompt (even early) in returning to the hotel to take us back to the airport. Highly recommend ABC Limo!!

Outrigger Reef: EXCELLENT!! Nothing negative to say.

Reliable Shuttle: We used them for transportation to Pearl Harbor. It wasn't our choice but rather the company that the hotel uses. Because of previous reviews, I was hesitant. They were on time but the problem was the drivers. Both drivers must have been nascar drivers. We were never so happy to get out of the van.

Enoa Tour: This was the best. Shannon was our tour guide for the Majestic Island Tour. Shannon is very knowledgeable of Hawaiian history.

Dune Buggy Adventure: The dune buggys can be rented or you can arrange a tour. We arranged a two hour tour to see Round Top Drive and H3. This was a neat advventure and the owner, Bryan was a great guy.

Jimmy Buffet's Restaurant - OK. Nothing spectacular.

Outrigger Catamaran: FUN! Previous reviews showed rough ride and wild group of people. Our ride was very smooth even with rough waters. We are not drinkers so the free drinks didn't interest us; however, the drinkers did not over do it.

Trolley: Not timely at all. Wasted money for a 4 day pass and only rode it twice. We could walk to the location faster than riding the trolley.

Bus: Fairly timely just stops every other block.

Cheeseburger Paradise: Loved it! Excellent food. We ate there 3 nights.

Hilo Hatties Shuttle: Not timely. Neat store.

ABC Stores: Almost on every block and has large variety of items. Each store has some of the same things and also different things.

Zoo: We usually visit zoos every where we visit. It was a small, yet nice zoo.

Overall, our trip was memorable. Definitely a place to see.

Thanks for sharing your trip with us, tawill! Sounds as though you had a fun time! May I ask what kind of room you had at Outrigger Reef, and what you paid per night?

We had a corner, oceanfront room which was $299 nightly. This price included breakfast every morning. In my opinion, it is well worth it. Would stay there again!
