So I know this has to be one of the most asked questions in this forum and I have read lots of old threads on the split stay dilemma, however I wanted to run my particular trip by the board and get some thoughts.
Trip dates are 2/27 to 3/7. Currently all 8 nights are at Sheraton. I am currently debating about making it a 5/3 split with the St. Regis in Princeville.
I have been to Kauai before and stayed at the Sheraton for the 5 nights and only made it to the north one day and did some hiking, I don't remember the traffic being particularly bad but seems like that is the consensus here, maybe I am just not remembering that part clear enough.
Obviously my main concerns about going to St Regis for the last three nights are, time to move pack/unpack and the higher likelihood of rain on north side. The packing thing should not be too bad as we are both fairly light packers and won't have kids etc along.
I am going with my girlfriend this time and we will probably do about 60-70% swimming/beach time vs 30-40% hiking/4WD touring/Helo rides etc and would be a bummer if it rained us in the last 3 days in Princeville.
I guess one option I may have is to just wait until I get there and check out the weather the day before I would want to move?
Anyway, if you have some thoughts I would love to hear them! Sorry if this has been beat to death already but this board was quite helpful in planning my first two trips to Hawaii and so I wanted to come back and ask about this trip as well.
