  • Well, I've been to Oahu and Maui. I really didn't care for Oahu that much but Maui is awesome!! Loved it! We stayed at the Embassy Suites. It was a really neat hotel and a little kitchen if you are taking a family. There are tons of things to do. Have fun!

  • I think Maui is most resortish. I have been to Kauii and that island is very quiet and rural.

  • I have to disagree with you slyvester, Oahu has just as much cultural events and activities as Maui.
    Oah'u has, of course, Waikiki Beach, the North Shore, Mokapu Point (gorgeous!!), Pearl Harbor, Kaneohe Bay, Chinman's hat, etc......

    Oah'i is more active than Maui --thus is why I recommend it over Maui for a first time visit w/ two kids.

    You'll want to be able to some kind of "life" (to keep kids busy) whether it be on Waikiki Beach, Polynesian Cultural Center, or kayaking to two off shore islands with TwoGood Kayaks (I HIGHLY recommend this activity!!!)
