While in Hawaii, we rented a Jeep Compass from Hertz. Partly because when traveling with a three year old there are lots of extra things to lug around, and partly because it was priced so competitively. Sadly, the week we had with it only served to convince me I would never buy a Jeep Compass.
We have stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, on Hawaii’s Big Island, three times now, and it is always a great experience overall, though not a cheap one. And where else can you stay in a hotel/resort large enough to justify both a train and a boat for getting between buildings?
