There are plenty of budget hotels near Waikiki Beach. However, you may find yourself annoyed with the barebones amenities and the rooms may be a bit too cramped for your liking. However, if you do have a more generous budget then you may want to pay attention to this Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort review. This may be the hotel for you.
Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort is directly on the beach, which is truly convenient if the beach is your main reason for going to Waikiki in the first place. The neighborhood of the hotel is rather quieter, as it’s located on the western side of Waikiki. But it sure is near lots of dining and shopping spots.
Inside the hotel, the rooms are nicely spacious. That’s because they cut down the number of rooms here in 2009, so they now have fewer but bigger rooms. There’s cocktail hour entertainment along with daily activities like ukulele playing and hula dancing. Continue reading

Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club Resort
Do you need to get away from the stressful job? Is the crowded city getting a little too much for you? What about that ache in your back and the headaches that don’t seem to go away? Maybe you need a little TLC, and a lovely vacation with your loved ones? A break is what I desperately needed, and I ran away to a place most people only dream of going.
My wife and I booked a lovely vacation at the Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club Resort for a few days. We thought why reside in one area for our two week vacation in Hawaii when we could stay at a few places and get as much of a “Hawaiian” experience as possible right? Bright idea huh?
Ko Olina is a unique place you definitely need to visit, or even stay, when on the island of Oahu. Continue reading
Here in Hawaii, there’s quite a lot for tourists and residents alike.
Real estate is very valuable on the islands, because it’s that, an island. Space is limited on an island as opposed to the mainland United States where land is abundant and vast. So, being paradise and such a beautiful place, the real estate market will be pretty consistent. That’s why me and my partner decided to delve into the subject and try to learn about real estate and investing in the market.
So, we signed up for a RE seminar of which the company is based out of Arizona. They put up a few events here in Hawaii every year and we signed up. The seminar was held in Waikiki, in the Hilton Hawaiian Village resort. Since it was a 3 day event and in Waikiki, we decided to to a little “staycation”.
A “staycation” is Continue reading

Palm trees, nice crystal blue beaches, surfing, leis, and hula dancers come to mind right?

Rest at the Westin Resort and Spa in Kaanapali. My family and I had the privilege to come here and vacation during the spring of this year. How nice it was to have been there. After such a long year before, I don’t know why we waited so long for a break? This vacation was long over due. The Westin Resort and Spa is great for couples, singles, business owners, and families alike. Its as beautiful as the pictures point out.
What’s There To Do
There are many amenities to keep you busy throughout the day. Just walking around the resort and beaches itself may take you quite awhile. The Westin has many resort shops and many more if you take a nice short walk along the beach. They have a great fitness studio that opens regularly and is great for people that don’t want to fall behind on their fitness on vacation. Thats no excuse, right?
What I enjoyed most Continue reading
