    Heading to Marriott Waiohai Beach Club

    Traveling to Marriott Waiohai 4/23-30,2024 with 6 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 babies. We have a babysitter to allow us to do some activities/dinners without children. Would appreciate advice on restaurants/activities with and without children as we’ve never been on island or property before.

    Waiohai view map

    I was making a Waiohai reservation and wanted to include my villa preferences. I searched TUG for a map that shows the views by villa number but couldn't find it. Then I remembered I had one in my purchase docs and had scanned it in...so...here it is in case anyone else could use it. Hope...

    Waiohai interior colors - Yuck!

    Do any of you think the interior colors at the Waiohai are awful, as my wife and I do?

    Marriott Hawaii Trading Power in II

    Many Tuggers say buy where you will stay and I have also read some posts indicating it is getting harder to trade within II since Marriott is trying to save space for its DP owners. We are trying to decide if we should buy a Marriott EOY 2 bedroom lockoff in Maui Ocean Club or Ko Olina or a 2...

    Interval-Marriott Disaster

    Ok, maybe a little dramatic, but that's about what I'm feeling right now. I deposited a late June 2016 Marriott Waiohai 2bedroom with II in early September 2015, knowing we would be unable to use it. In April 2016 I put in a request for June 2017 for an equivalent property (actually 12...
