You can't beat Hawaii for a family vacation! I do have to say that it takes effort to get to Hawaii, especially if you are traveling with children. The closest flight (from the west coast) is about 5 1/2 hours so you are on the plane with your children for a while. But once you arrive in paradise it is worth it!
Waikiki is the traditional touristy spot, but not worth throwing out of the itinerary! When I visit Hawaii I love making it part of my stop. It brings old Hawaii into a newer city that is vibrant and lively. The beach itself has a lot to offer as far as beauty with the view of Diamond Head and all of the water sports. Time for a surf lesson!
Kauai is an island of beauty and also offers the warmth of Hawaiian hospitality! The island is perfect for relaxing with your kids on the beach, a spectacular pool or finding adventure around every corner.
Staying in Poipu you are sure to always have a sunny day and a beautiful sunset!
The big island of Hawaii offers the most variety from all of the islands and if you are looking for a resort to stay at the Hilton Waikoloa Village is amazing and perfect for anyone. It is a village and it has a world to offer. The property itself is so big there is a tram and a boat that travel through the resort. And the architecture is so big it reminds me of something that would be in Rome or Las Vegas. It offers something for everyone!
There is a full ocean lagoon that flows out to the beautiful Hawaiian waters with water sports and swimming. You can snorkel in calm waters or eat in one of the many restaurants around the waters edge.
The variety of entertainment and food is out of this world! There are so many different restaurants and bars around the property and they all have a different feel. From 5 star to sitting by the pool and eating sandwich you will be pleased with the options. There is no need to leave the property and go find somewhere new to eat and try. There is also live music around every corner. The luau is a must see. It is a traditional Hawaiian luau and it is cool because it tells the story of Hawaii. The food is also amazing with fresh fish, yummy desserts and traditional Hawaiian food.
Dolphin Quest is one of the coolest things about staying at the Hilton Waikoloa Village! The dolphins are on the property for everyone to look at and enjoy! You can book different packages to swim and interact with them. It is truly magical and amazing to have you child interact with such sweet creatures. You feel as though you are part of their world.
The pools at this amazing village are endless! There are kiddie pools, water slides, adult areas, waterfalls, it is a water wonderland! The property is located on the rocky beach but offers soft sand at the lagoon and at the kiddie pool. All of the pools offer a bar service for parents enjoying their stay while watching their child swim!
I can't say enough great and amazing things about the Hilton Waikoloa Village! Traveling to the Big Island offers waterfalls, beaches, culture, volcanoes, black sand, history, The Kona Brewing Company (which is amazing!), and all the beauty of what Hawaii is can be found on this island. This resort is what the Big Island is all about. You don't have to ever leave the resort if you don't want to. You can make it as relaxing or as exciting as you want. It is truly a village and it is worth the trip! Visit Hawaii and visit the Hilton Waikoloa Village and experience the magic of Hawaii!
