1. Re: Going to be at Hilton thru Christmas

We have been at the Hilton for Christmas. The hotel is beautiful with all the decorations. We are the type of family that likes to leave resorts. We do have 1 resort day, but typically we are up early, and head out. Below are just a small sample of our favorite things to do:

1 - Hapuna Beach is one of our favorite beaches and only 10 minutes away from the Hilton:


2 - Visitor's center at Mauna Kea. We leave the Hilton at 5:00pm to head up via the saddle road. Be sure to dress warm.


3 - Dive and snorkel at the Place of Refuge


4 - Volcano National Park is a must!! It will take all day, but we love the drive and take our time. We do get up really early.


We will also be returing to the Big Island this year for 16 days for the holidays. We have been going to Maui for the past 3 years, but really wanted to go back to the Big Island. Because of the length of time on the island, we have decided on a condo instead of the Hilton. We have enough Hilton points, but since my son and hubby are divers, we need a little more room :o)

JMHO - the food is just okay at the Hilton - very expensive. I recommend leaving for lunch and dinner. Grab a cup of coffee and head out on your adventure :o)

If you celebrate Christmas, you might enjoy the Mauna Lani hotel Charity Trees display...many decorated trees in the lobby from early Dec. thru New Years.
