I live on the wet, rainforest side of the Big Island. It’s lush and tropical, but every once in a while, I need an entire day (or two) of sunshine.
Hawaii residents are offered kama’aina rates at local hotels at a discount. But, I’ve found that I can get even better bargains on Priceline.com. Using “Waikoloa” and “resort” as my search options, I can always get the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa for about $100/night using “Name Your Own Price” bidding.
There’s a gorgeous pool area, waterslide for the kids, beach activities and many restaurants and shops nearby.
Another day in paradise…
