Some of the adventures and sights to see are guided by: “Buy and download our app and which has the GPS coordinates and can guide you to the starting point or the exact location of the attraction (such as the “tunnels” hike or the “Bell Rock”). Please explain to me why they couldn’t put the GPS coordinates in the book that I could plug into my phone, without having to pay a second time to have the information? This is an obvious attempt to shill more product and get more of our money.
The reviews for many of the restaurants in the book also seem to be based on simply ambiance instead of quality of food and value for money, which is counterproductive to me and my significant other. Also, the food pricing for restaurants is completely outdated and inaccurate. For example, Puka Dogs (which are absolutely delicious but have shrank significantly in the past few years) are listed as $10 for a dog and lemonade, but are actually $12.50. Now I’m not griping about $2.50, but that is a 25% difference, and looking at other restaurant prices in the book, a 15% difference in price was about the minimum I saw (that adds up over a week trip, and can be dramatic on a little nicer place like Keoki’s, Duke’s, or Eating House 1849.
All-in-all, this book still has a good amount of valuable and worthwhile information, but is outdated, and has lost value to me. Your mileage may vary.
Everything we did, we used the tips and advise from this book and was not disappointed!!! Such great info
we stayed in Lihue at The Marriott Beach Club
rented a car from airport (cheaper than getting from hotel and its just a shuttle ride to airport from hotel)
Took the car and went to the North Shore for a full day - Anini beach was our favorite but had fun visiting Hanalei Bay, Tunnels Beach and Ke'e beach as well. on the way back to Lihue that evening, We stopped at the best Mexican food spot in Kapaa called Verde. we got the yummiest margaritas and burritos! However, do not mistake this location for the Lihue location... not the same at all and you will be disappointed!!
We did the Captain Andy's 5.5 hour Napoli coast catamaran tour and loved it. lots of dolphin and whale watching. beautiful way to see the south and west side of the island. That afternoon we spent the day cruising the south shore and relaxed on Kekaha Beach. Stayed there to watch the sunset. Such a beautiful day! On the way back to Lihue, we stopped in Poipu to eat dinner at Keokis Paradise. Such a fun spot!
Yes, we also did the helicoptor tour and went with Blue Hawaiian and had a great time. WOW, this is a must do on your trip! you get to see the entire island and the pilots are fun and knowledgeable. Blue Hawaiian was also super easy for us to get to...our hotel shuttle took us to their bay at the airport.
Enjoy your trip!!!

Always a challenge that these books can never be quite up to date, so I recommend that you cross check with recent entries on trip advisor. With both of those references you'll be home safe!
