Hi there -
We need to re-book our Costco trip to the BI due to the prices going WAY down since when we first booked. We will save up to $500 off the original package preice we paid if we re-book.
I know that the Hilton Waikoloa is not everyone's favorite on these boards, but I do need some help. We are certain that the Hilton is where we want to stay. When I re-book I have the following options:
Garden View - either Ocean or Palace tower (won't know which until check-in)
Partial Ocean View - either Ocean or Palace tower (won't know which until check-in) About $50 more than pkg base price
Ocaean View Deluxe - either Ocean or Palace tower (won't know which until check-in) About $150 more than pkg base price
Lagoon Tower - Garden View - aboout $75 more than pkg base price
Lagoon Tower - Partial Ocean View - about $90 more than pkg base price
Lagoon Tower - Deluxe Ocean View - about $225 more than pkg base price
I read through at least a dozen posts on the subject, and they are relly split on which is the best tower.
Here's more about what we are looking for. We are 27 and 34, going to the BI in Sept this year for 1 week and then flying to Maui for 2 weeks, where we will be getting married. We are doing the BI first, by ourselves, and will have about 30 people waiting for us on Maui and will be staying there in a garden view condo.
We really wanted to have a nice ocean view, close enough that we could potentially hear the ocean at night. We don't mind lots of kids, but would prefer a quiter atmosphere (at least in the tower itself - we expect the pools to be a kid-zoo) and we know how long all of the walks are.
So what would you pick if you were me??
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
