has amazing beaches, scenic mountains and stunning sunsets. Since almost all of the resorts on the island offer a diverse selection of specials you are bound to find a package that meets your needs. Choices range from large full service resorts to secluded hideaways and hidden hotels.
The best way to pick a special that's right for you and your family is to ask everyone what they want to do. Travelers are often surprised how expensive breakfast is in Hawaii, ranging from $30 to $50+ per person. If you are a family of four, that can really add up so picking an offer that includes breakfast is a good idea.
Resort fees are another expense that people forget to consider - a hotel package that includes the daily resort fee can save you from unexpected charges when you are paying for your stay. Other great offers to look for are free nights, free car rental with your stay, golf and spa treatments.
