My wife and I are visting the Big Island during the first week of December and were hoping to stay in Waikoloa. We have stayed in Waikoloa many times but but this time we need to watch our budget. Does anyone know of any good deals at any of the resorts? Can I save money by calling the hotel direct? I saw a post on Craigslist that said Waikoloa is a ghost town these days. Are things that slow over there?? Thanks for any tips!
