Our experience with the wedding planning department at the Hilton was extremely disappointing. There was a lot of little details involved in our wedding and our wedding planner was terrible at getting back to us (via phone and email). There were many things that she didn't update on our contract. Such as the time of our rehearsal, making sure that the tropical drinks at the bar were ONLY alcoholic (they actually started serving non-alcoholic drinks during the cocktail hour), she forgot that we had a flower girl and a Jr. BM (when we went over it numerous times). We felt that she should have taken care of much more than she did. The day before the wedding was spent running around getting questions answered on my own. If you're planning a large destination wedding at this hotel I would think again. The hotel itself is beautiful, but very big. Be aware that it takes a long time to get from one end of the hotel to the other. The food and beverage staff at the reception was amazing. They exceeded our expectations!

I went to Kalona for my hair and makeup on the wedding day. Great salon and they made me and my bridesmaids feel like total VIPs.

Hyatt Regency Maui
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We stayed here on our honeymoon, and then went over to the Hyatt on Kauai. We agreed that the Kauai hotel felt more like a resort and was more honeymoon-ish than Maui. Still nice, but not quite right for a honeymoon.

Tubing in the old Kauai sugar cane flumes was great! We can't say enough about this activity. It was so much fun!! Bring a water proof camera with you (that's something we forgot to do).

Merriman's Restaurant
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Merriman's is located in the Kings Shops in Waikoloa. I can't say enough about the food and the staff. They were great to work with from the start. We gave them a price range and they drafted a menu for us. They even offered wine pairings for each dish. They also printed up menus for our party. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ed was wonderful to work with. He's extremely professional and worked with us on our song play list. There was a little problem at the wedding with the music for the hula performance...my cousin's brought the right CD, but the wrong CD was inside the case. Ed insisted that they go through with the performance. Someone went back to the room, downloaded the song from the Internet to their Ipod, and Ed uploaded it to his computer. I would hire him again in a second.

Charla was great to work with. She has such a creative eye and our pictures turned out great. There was a couple of times when she was on the ground taking pictures of us and were were like, "huh?" =) Those were some of the best shots (our sunset shots).

Glamorous Nail Spa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This place is located about 15 minutes from the Hilton Waikoloa. This place is REALLY tiny and they only have two nail stations, but they are a lot cheaper than doing your nails at any of the hotel spas ($51 mani/pedi). They did a good job on my nails.

Lani's Floral Shoppe
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We loved the flowers! Lani's shop did a great job on getting my calla lilies and tropical flowers blended together in a way that it looked great.

We came here for our honeymoon. I liked this Hyatt better than the one on Maui. This was more of resort feel than the other hotel.
