Hey everyone, I am going to hawaii for the first time for my honeymoon this coming November (leaving on the 10th, spending 7 nights in Maui, then 7 on big island). Now that we have actual days planned, we started looking into hotels and I want to get everyone's opinion on a good place to stay for a honeymoon that isn't going to run us too much.
It seems like a nice resort is going to run at least $250 and closer to $350-$400, which we can swing, but if we could we would like to get something closer to $200-$250. We are aiming for a nicer place on Maui, then an average place on big island to save money, so we definitely want something we will enjoy, but we don't want to spend $500 a night and have no money for excursions. Some places I have read on that seem nice are:
Waillea Marriot seemed to be highly rated and around $285 a night for November.
The Ritz seemed great and around $300 in November, but how is that side of the island in November? Super windy all the time? I am not picky on where we stay since we will have a car and be traveling around a lot, but just curious.
Also heard good things about the Westin, Napili Kai Resort, and Grand Wailea?
Does anyone have any great recommendations for hotels in that price range of if possible a little below but still nice?
Thanks for any and all advice! I am excited to finally be experiencing Hawaii!
