    Hawaii -Kona Big Island - Feb 11 - Feb 25 >> 2B 2B >> Pick your days inside those dates (2023)

    Rules say $115 per day so there you have it. :cool:Want to visit for 6 days or 9 days or? Let's chat and you could catch midweek flights within Feb 11-25. Resort does have taxes and a fee for A/C which total about $25 per day (not included in the $115). You'll need to put a CC down for that...

    Back from Waikoloa

    I recently visited the Marriott Waikoloa. I had a 2 bedroom suite. The suite was excellent with 3 balcony's & 3 TV's which helped a lot to satisfy all interests. The room had partial ocean view.

    Banking our Paniolo Greens Week question

    We currently belong to RCI - but we are considering banking our week elsewhere this time. We usually cannot get another week in Hawaii for the TPUs RCI offers us - even for our xmas week! I don't usually do the ongoing search. That is probably the problem. But it irritates me that everything...
