Just booked 11 nights at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Flying from DCA. Always go to Barbados - first trip to Hawaii. Should we spend all 11 nights in Oahu seeing the sights and enjoying the food (we love Hawaii 50 & want to see that gorgeous type of scenery), or should be go someplace else for a few nights. Also - should we spend 11 nights at the Hilton Hawaiian Village if we stay on Oahu or should we break that up?
Typically we enjoy condos too but don't want to spend more than $230/night for the 2 of us. We are going on September 15 for the 11 nights.
What are some "must see sights" - we love gorgeous scenery, flowers, waterfalls (not into big city).
Also what are some of the top restaurants to enjoy - we like gourmet most of the time, but also like to try the "local-flavor" type places. Just want a memorable trip.
Are any of the luaus better?
Any particular tour operator we should check with for the best value?
Thanks in advance for all of the advice.
