After much deliberations, I confirmed our 8 night stay at the Grand Waikikian for my family (myself, husband and kids aged 14 & 15). After having spoken with friends who visited Waikiki recently, I'm wondering if we should be splitting our stay with 4 nights in Waikiki and 4 nights at the Marriott Ka'Olina on the North Shore.
While I'd like the kids to see Waikiki, 8 nights of the hustle and bustle might be too much for us.
We plan on visiting Pearl Harbour, the Polynesian Cultural Centre, Hanauma Bay as well as some North Shore Beaches. We are renting an SUV for the entire week.
Should I consider Waikiki my "home base" base for the week?
