We're looking to decide between these two properties for 4 nights in August. Two adults, 2 young teens. Primary interests are a decent pool, close to the beach, and walking distance to shops/restaurants as we won't have a car. Budget is around $250 and both of these are available for around that (Reef is $20 more per night).
Another option in our range is the Regency on the Beachwalk - about $30 less than the Reef, $10 less than the Waikiki.
Our trip goals are:
Visit Pearl Harbor
Hike Diamond Head
Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center
Relax at the pool / beach
We may rent a car and drive the rest of the island as well.
Thanks in advance.
