Great Hawaii Vacations 07/05/20
I don't know if I previously wrote to you about our vacation to Kauai this past March, but I wanted you to know that we had a great time! Our accomodations at Poipu Kai Resort were very comfortable. The close proximity to the beach, the view from our balcony and the pool and tennis court all combined to enhance our enjoyment. Our flights to and from also worked out just fine. In fact when I called United to see if there was anything they could do to get us sitted together for the trip home, someone from your office had already spoken to United and made the change. Kauai is truly a beautiful place and I'm grateful for your help in planning a wonderful vacation! Best Regards,

Our vacation was wonderful! The ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Tower has got to be the best Condo on Oahu. Everyone was so pleasant and very helpful to us the whole time. We really enjoyed the trip, in major part due to the staff there. The accommodations were nice too, especially the great ocean view. The beds could have been a little more comfortable, but maybe they will work on that. Carrie Walker was the representative who helped me book our vacation. She was also great. She was very nice and very helpful. Thanks so much for everything.

I want to thank Great Hawaii Vacations for a wonderful honeymoon experience. Our stay at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort was perfect and we were even upgraded to a nicer room and had champagne and a fruit plate waiting for us. The deal we had from Great Hawaii Vacations was the best room price we found online and included a car for free - not even the major "name your own price" web site could beat the deal we had. Also, the rental car agency upgraded our compact to a convertible for free! To top it all off, we had excellent service all around. Next vacation I go to Hawaii will be through Great Hawaii vacations since they also had very unique tours to offer on the various islands. I really am a satisfied customer and will be back for more! Sincerely,
Alex Duran Goleta, CA
Everything was PERFECT!!! We had a wonderful time and loved ResortQuest Kaanapali Shores. They have some really nice amenities but didn't make you feel like you were in a closed-in resort. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and helpful. Our condo was really nice and clean and had everything we needed. Our five year old daughter really enjoyed the Kids Camp too!!! We would definately return to ResortQuest Kaanapali Shores and hopefully will be calling you in the "not too distant future!" Mahalo,

I want to thank you and your staff for making our vacation so enjoyable. We did run into a few problems but I am happy to tell you (and others) that my problems were handled by your staff quickly, efficiently and professionally. Sincerely,

Aloha, This is a short note to let you know that my Husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. Our room had the most spectacular view of the ocean. The hotel was clean and the staff polite. The location was exactly what we hoped it would be. It was walking distance to several restaurants, main Front Street shops and a perfect jogging trial. The only mistake was that we hardly needed our convertible rental car because everything was so close and convenient. I would definitely recommend the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort and look forward to trying some of your other lovely condominiums. Sincerely,
Prencis Shaw Andover , NJ
We had a fantastic time and couldn't have asked for more from your company. Even your Barefoot Tour recommendation was right on. They hooked us up with all kinds of fabulous fun. My thoughts: Ka'anapali Shores was fantastic for a family! Rooms were amazing and the washer/dryer in room was a god send. Loved the two pools, the restaurant on site when you needed food quick and the pool side bar is always a treat. Lahaina town is a must and we loved The Lahaina Fish Co. We also loved Hual Grill at The Whaler's Village. Dinner Cruise and Submarine were awesome, would skip the big luau next time (Royal - we felt like cattle) and do a smaller freebie type. Car rental was good. Talked them down to $60 for the week since we were Costco members. We are saving for 2008 and hope to be in contact again. Thanks for everything!!

We had a wonderful trip to Maui and loved the location of our condo, the Napili Point Resort. The condo was very basic but the location was prime. Dustin was very instrumental in helping us with all of our arrangements including: accommodations, flights, car, rentals for the kids, etc. Thanks for the great service and we look forward to working with you to plan our next trip to Hawaii. Thanks,
Pam Souza San Francisco, CA
The condo you recommended, ResortQuest Maui Hill, in Kihei was wonderful. The price was right and we could spend money on other fun things! I am really glad that I booked through you guys and when I go back I will definitely use you for everything. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time and everything turned out great. The hotel, the car, the location was fabulous. We upgraded our room at the Hyatt Regency Maui when we got there and had a beautiful ocean view. We saw a great show called Warren and Anabelle, which was really entertaining. (the only bummer was babysitting at the hotel, very expensive, it gave my husband heart burn!!) My boys first airplane and out of California vacation was one I think they will always remember. My ten year old went scuba diving and loved it so much he and my husband actually went on two dives. I will recommend you to all my friends and thank you for the surprise carmel corn, it was very yummie! Thanks again,

Thank you again for booking another wonderful vacation to Kauai for us! We had a fabulous time and we got great weather. The car rental upgrade worked out great too, we were glad we did it and you took care of it so quickly for us. We look forward to planning another trip over there and you will be the one we call. We will also recommend you to all of our friend heading over to the islands! Aloha,
Lisa Bagnall & Family Santa Cruz, CA
The Aqua Aloha Surf was clean and comfortable. The staff was very courteous and helpful. It served our needs before going on our cruise. We hope to go to Hawaii again in a few years. Thank you,

Aloha, Thank you for the follow up email. What great customer service! We had a wonderful time in Hawaii. Both places we booked through your agency were wonderful! Your agent asked us if we were celebrating any special occasions. We were actually celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and my birthday. She gave this information to Napili Kai, and they greeted us with a very thoughtful welcome gift of wine, flowers and chocolate covered macadamia nuts! We would definitely stay at Napili Kai again, as well as the Grand Wailea. We would also use Great Hawaii Vacations again. We have already recommended your services to others. Mahalo! Regards,

Thank you so much, every thing was wondreful on our vacation/honeymoon. We have only good things to say about Great Hawaii Vacations! Thanks Again,

We had a great time in Oahu and Maui on our vacation. The weather was beautiful, all our accommodations were great with an ocean view as requested, and we enjoyed sightseeing in the car on Maui. Jennifer provided quick and efficient service during the booking process and we were nicely surprised by the gift of the photo album we received in Maui. The first room we were given at the Sheraton Maui, where we stayed for 9 days, had no balcony but when we requested a change, we were accommodated immediately and the room we were given (with balcony) had a fabulous view of the ocean and Ka'anapali beach. The Sheraton Maui provided leis for us on arrival and there was a box of Hawaiian chocolates in our room. We would definitely recommend booking with Great Hawaii Vacations.

We just returned from our 2 week "get away" in Hawaii . We had a wonderful time and were delightfully surprised with our accommodations at the Kona Reef. They were everything we had hoped for and more. We were impressed with the service you provided - and the fact that every detail was included and accurate, like the map to find the place and after hours keys conveniently located. We would have no hesitation in booking accommodations again through Great Hawaii Vacations. Thank you again.

It was wonderful! Thank you for your help in making our trip a success.

What a vacation!!! The best we have had. Don't know if it was the destination, the ages of the kids, or what, but we had a great time. The Kaanapali Ali was perfect. The condo was newly renovated, beautiful, comfortable and a mountain view which we loved. The beach was gorgeous, nice walking distance to black rock, nice boardwalk, safe....The kids took surf lessons, boogie boarded, snorkeled, shopped, ate........ We used Barefoot tours to book Haleakala bike tour, Steve's dolphin snorkeling, Ulalena. All were top notch!! Great location to Lahaina. Would love to go back, but from the east coast it really was a trip of a life time. Thank You,

The reservations with your company for our hotel and rental car processed smoothly. The Radisson Waikiki Prince Kuhio hotel was really nice and even gave us an oceanview upgrade when they learned it was our 30th anniversary. The room was spacious, well accommodated, clean, and had comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom was pretty tiny, but okay. It was especially nice to have a coin laundry on the 9th floor and a complimentary business center where we could check email on their computers. The location was within an easy 5 minute walk to the beach (during normal weather!), stores, and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others, especially at the great price compared to other hotels nearby. Thanks again for helping us have a wonderful Hawaiian vacation. Take care.

My wife, daughter, and friend really enjoyed our stay at the Maui Kamaole. The location was great for accessing South Maui beaches, which we found to be super. The condo was comfortable and well-maintained. I believe we also booked a luau and boat ride to Molokini through you - both were great. We would definitely recommend you.

No problems with check in, staff was helpful, and room was what I paid for and expected.

Aloha, We had a perfect Maui vacation! The flight, car rental, accommodations, weather, restaurants, shopping, beaches, whales, turtles, sunsets, tours (especially Hana) and hospitality from the locals were amazing. Our first week at the Mana Kai Maui in Kihei was great. The lobby renovations were not completed, however the new entrance looks very nice. The Five Palms restaurant was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised! Our room was in very good condition. Comfortable bed, three ceiling fans, lots of storage space, a nice radio/stereo system. Kitchen with newer appliances and all the bells and whistles except kitchen scissors. We definitely plan to return to the Mana Kai Maui and look forward to the new lobby and other renovation's. During our second week at the Royal Lahaina we were entertained by whales everyday, watched the amazing sunsets from our lanai while drinking champagne (which an employee gave us when we told him we were there celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary), enjoyed the pools and cabanas and totally relaxed. We dealt with Jennifer Runyon who was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our first experience dealing with Great Hawaii Vacations and have already mentioned you to friends. Note, we did book our Hana tour with Barefoot tours in Lahaina and received a discount and very good service! Thanks for the tip. Mahalo,

We found Great Hawaii Vacations by accident when we were planning our trip to Hawaii. When we called to reserve a room for 2 nights we found that the agent, Patti, was so informative and helpful that we ended up doing most of our holiday arranging with her. She was able to find us: a great condo which we just enjoyed so much, a car rental, interisland flights and tours. We could not beat the prices and the time saved in searching for these deals was much appreciated. It was such a nice bonus to have the phone number of the agent in Hawaii for tours and recreational activity. We found the staff very pleasant and most accommodating to our needs. On our next trip we won't waste time on the net we'll be calling GHV directly. Too bad every vacation area doesn't have a GHV agent. Thanks again to Patti and the staff at GHV for providing such an excellent service.

Aloha, We ALL had a wonderful time, even our sixteen month old. Our accommodations at the Maui Kamaole were excellent! We were lucky on the weather since it was raining everywhere else but where we were. Our seven year old asked when we could come back to Hawaii . So we may try it again sometime soon. We took our two children and the three grandchildren and it was a great place to gather. The whale watching trip was a hit, but most of all we just enjoyed being on the beaches. Thanks for all your help and information. It was very helpful! It's a very friendly place and the people were super! Mahalo,

Thank you to Great Hawaii Vacations for the excellent accommodations at Turtle Bay Resort. The directions were good and we had no trouble getting the key to our condo at 10:30 pm Sun. night. We enjoyed the kitchen and ability to cook our meals. Parking close to the room was also very nice. We visited the Polynesian Cultural Center , Pearl Harbor, Waimea Valley Audubon Center and went snorkeling. It was a very fun week, even with the cloudy weather, and we hope to go back sometime. Thanks for your help in making it an affordable and pleasant stay. Sincerely,
Pierce Moore Hendersonville, NC
My wife and I just returned from 14 nights at the Wailua Bay View condos on Kauai . Even though it rained about half the time we were there, we had a great time. The condo we were in (312) had every thing we needed and plenty of stuff we never got around to using. This was the fourth trip to Hawaii we've booked through Great Hawaii Vacations and it's the fourth time everything has gone off without a hitch. Everything was just as we wanted. We will miss Susanne Franklin but we will be using your company for our next trip to Hawaii . You have always provided great service and have found airfare and rooms as cheap or cheaper than I could and I looked all over the internet. Mahalo and Aloha,
