Service rating : They were very responsive to our telephone calls and emails. When our flight out was cancelled at the last minute due to a snowstorm, they made the necessary adjustments promptly.
Vacation : It was a fairly priced trip. My only suggestion would be to use another resort on Kona. I did not like the Sheraton at all except for the pool. The food was mediocre and the hallway smelled moldy. I have a severe allergy to mold so I was concerned that I might get ill. It did affect me a little but I did not get really sick. Beautiful location though. The other hotels were quite nice and more upscale, I think.

Sight Seeing 1) Farm to Table tour and lunch was a HIDDEN GEM! a) Presentation and quality of the food was superior b) Tour of the facility was excellent 2) Attention needed for touring on Maui and Kauai Dining 1) Welcome reception a) No wow factor – just another “Happy Hour” no wow factor b) No desserts – brownies – when I asked a staff member he said “popular item, no more” - Oh WELL!!!! 2) Tom did try to compensate the roach incident by buying lunch Accommodations 1) Outrigger and Hyatt were excellent choices 2) Sheraton was just average – no wow factor 3) Kauai Beach Resort – very POOR a) found two roaches in bathroom one in tub and one on bath matt b) moved to another room – opened the cabinet to refrigerator and one jumped on door that was the last night of our stay and left a WONDERFUL IMPRESSION!!!!!! “Roach Motel” 4) Best breakfast was at Outrigger 5) Worst breakfast was at the Sheraton Coach / Driver 1) Rosario on Kauai a) excessive chatter about personal information on wife, divorce, settlement of divorce 2) Chatter and commentary between Tom and Rosario was that of a POOR QUALITY morning Talk radio show!!!!!!!!!! But no dial to turn it off!!! 3) Bus windows needed attention – they should be SPOTLESS!!! a) asked a bus driver about the window quality answer was “do they need clean”? – now really – we are taking pictures on this tour Optional Experiences 1) Maui needs more tour options 2) Kauai is in desperate need of more optional tours

Great accommodations and nice tours of the islands. We loved being able to do several inter-island flights with little-to-no hassles. The tour company handled our bags for us whenever we were departing or arriving.
