I wonder if anyone has advice. I am planning a last minute trip to Hawaii leaving mid October. I have the flights and the hotel in Oahu. Now looking at going to Kauai and was initially thinking of staying at Poipu, perhaps at the Waikomo Stream Villas or Outrigger Kahuma Plantation. After reading through the reviews, I realise that most of the condos at both places are individually owned and therefore some are good, some not, difficult to know which are the good condos. So perhaps a better idea is to split my 7 nights in Kauai and book for example 4 at Outrigger and the other three somewhere else. Any suggestions please on where would be a good place to stay. I would be looking for a room for three adults - 1 bedroom is fine - and trying to keep within a budget of $150 per night. I will be hiring a car for the seven days.
Also, as this is not high season (October) could I just book the first four days inn Poipu and just drive and find something wherever I end up for the last three nights? Or would it be better to get everything booked up before I leave.
If anyone has any views, I would be pleased to hear them.
