We are needing to book lodging for 12 persons (6 AD and 6 CH) for a week the first week of June. We choose the Waikiki area because we have two young adults and two older kids and thought they would want to be in close proximity to activity. So I have opted for 3 rooms in either the Aston Waikiki Sunset or the Ohana Waikiki Mailia. I initially tried to locate a home or condo but could not find anything suitable within our $600 night budget. I have research both and read the reviews. There is about a total $600 difference in price between the two hotels. The other difference is "kitchenette vs a full kitchen". I am inclined to take the kitchenette and save the money for other activities on the island - thus booking the Ohana Mailia. My concern is that I am missing something.
