I'm sure this has been covered in other formus but trying to find the answer is like doing reasearch on Hawaii...very overwhelming! This is a first time trip for us...Me, my husband and our three kids (9, 6, and 4). We are planning on a trip in late June, early July for ten days. We are leaning toward the Kolea Villas in Waikoloa, BI. We love staying in a condo - more space, kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. From what we can tell, these are new units and the only ones in the area "on the beach." I understand there has been construction there and at the Marriot but we are not deterred. We picked BI because of all of the activity...my kids love to play on the beach, but they also love to go on excursions. And, my husband is not one to sun bathe all day. We will be renting a car and feel we have plenty of time to mix it up and see just about everything. For me, if I'm going to travel all of that way, then seeing volcanoes is a must.
A friend of mine travelling around the same time with the same number of kids picked Maui. They are staying in a resort and plan on doing very little...pool every day, swim with dolphins, go in a submarne, etc. I understand that Maui is very tropical and that the beaches are beautiful.
Given how active we like to be, do you agree that the BI is a good choice for us? I know if you ask ten people, you will get ten different answers, but what am I missing?
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
