A Winner's Vacation in Hawaii
Great Hawaii Vacations is happy to post a report from Christie, one of the winners of our free vacations in Hawaii. We are so happy to have been part of her vacation in Paradise.
I want to thank Great Hawaii Vacations for winning 5 nights at the Waikiki Marriott Resort and tell you a little about our stay.
We recently returned from our trip which was wonderful. We arrived on a beautiful, sunny
afternoon and caught a quick shuttle to the hotel. Check in was so easy and we were given a room on a high, quiet floor with fabulous views of Diamond Head and the ocean. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. A new flat screen TV with a mini-fridge made it even better. Every morning I swept open the curtains and gazed at the view. It was so amazing it made it hard to leave.
The beach is right across the street and we just walked to everything. If we were too tired to walk, the bus and $2 pink trolley stops are right outside the hotel. We didn't need a car for anything.
The concierge can make arrangements for any activity you desire. We went to Hanauma Bay to snorkel, hiked to the top of Diamond Head, and went to Paradise Cove for a luau. Again all the pick-ups are right outside the hotel. How easy it that!
We ate at two of the restaurants in the hotel for dinner, and if we had more time, would have eaten at more. They were both top notch with excellent service and food. Everyone at the hotel was very professional and friendly, always saying hello when they passed you in the halls. I had no complaints about anything except the internet, no free Wi-Fi. :(. I also liked to shop in the hotel. There was a Hawaiian Accessories shop with items made from indigenous trees and other locally made gifts. It was the perfect one-stop place to get gifts for my family.
Other stores had great gifts for myself! We also made sure to go to the happy hour at the pool area daily. The views area wonderful and it's a great place to meet other guests. We had such a great time that we almost forgot to relax.
I hope it doesn't take us too long to go back as we know how easy and fun a trip to Hawaii can be. Hope you like some of the pictures.
