I really need help deciding on the island.
I will be traveling with my family, 7 adults and 1 child (10 years) for 5 nights.
We were considering Oahu at 1st for the short duration and to avoid having to take another flight from honolulu (flights already booked).
However, after reviewing the hotels in Waikiki, they all seem to be very crowded, expensive and lacks the relaxation vibe.
We want an oceanfront hotel, partial or ocean view room, relaxing environment, and the Hawaiian feel with a budget from $200 to $300 per room per night. We also want the best beach for swimming (White sand and clear water)
This is the first visit for all of us, and I wanna make sure its as expected.
I came across the Hilton Waikolola in the Big Island, and it seems to be in the budget but i am not sure about the beach and the hotel itself.
Your input is highly appreciated.
