Hello! We will be visiting the Big Island over Thanksgiving - our first time on the island after visiting Maui several times. Currently we have a reservation at the Fairmont Orchid, but we might want to do a condo in the Waikoloa area instead because it might give us more space, plus more dining and shopping options nearby (any advice on Fairmont area vs Waikoloa will be appreciated :). We like walking on sandy beaches and want access to the ocean and beach -- it looks like A-Bay Beach is the main beach for Waikoloa. I wanted to know if the hurricane did any damage to it? I know it's a narrow beach anyway. Our lodging situation is not locked in, so if the hurricane did any damage anywhere, we'd like to know that before committing. Does anyone know how things fared? Thanks so much for any advice and info!
