for our exclusive Great Hawaii Vacation Deals for this festival. Deals include:
We were very impressed with the new Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort. From its beautiful entrance to its pool side ocean views this hotel is a jewel of Hawaii. The spa and fitness center, oceanfront Crystal Blue Lounge with its evening manta ray watch, water activities (including the longest waterslide in Hawaii), golf and tennis make this one of the top on our list of Hawaii vacation spots.
Oceanfront hotel with easy access to Kahaluu Bay for wonderful snorkeling and swimming. Beautifully landscaped tropical grounds. Enjoy all the amenities of the wonderful Keauhou Beach Resort: oceanside dining, tennis, room service and much more.
Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel is located in Kailua-Kona Town and is an easy walk to shops and restaurants. One of the few resorts located on a sandy beach (the beach is not very large). Reasonably priced.
