I think we settled on a Hawaii honeymoon. We were going to do Sandals at St. Lucia or somewhere else but they are just too expensive. They are 65% off right now and are coming in at $280 per person per night for the cheapest room at the cheapest resort out of all of Sandal's options. It would cost $600 a day for the cheapest scenario, which probably wouldn't be at a location we want anyways. We can get at least 1 free flight to Hawaii with our miles and we have a coworkers who has visited Hawaii 11 times and is recommending houses/condos to us that are around $75-$300 a night ranging from basic to extravagant (ocean front, jacuzzi, etc.). We also have friends and his parents offering their timeshare there to us since they both always let points expire (we would insist on paying them). So we have many options!
We decided on the big island and will stay in the Hilo area. Any suggestions? Recommendations? Thanks!
