If I did not know better about the room rates of Hapuna Beach Prince hotel and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, I might think 2 rooms for the price of 1 should attract many visitors. However, let's have a closer look at this Hawaii vacation deal from the Prince hotels: "Book the 1st room at published rates listed below and the 2nd room is FREE! Choose from select locations on Oahu, Maui and Big Island. Valid through 9/30/09."
Here are the published room rates:
Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki - rates start at $330
Maui Prince Hotel - rates start at $425
Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel - rates start at $415
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel - rates start at $700
I don't know about the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and the Maui Prince, but I can definitely speak for Hapuna Beach Hotel and Mauna Kea Beach hotel that the rates listed are nearly double the room rates from the past. We reported that the Mauna Kea room rates had skyrocketed after it reopened in December 2008. Anybody would expect that with the economy slowdown and Hawaii Tourism trying to attract visitors to Hawaii, Hapuna Beach Hotel would offer special room rates instead of raising those considerably and then offer 2 rooms for 1. So where is the promised Hawaii vacation deal?
Anybody familiar with Hawaii travel knows that Spring and Summer Hawaii visitors have been the average or even budget traveler. As the middle class is the same affected by the economy slowdown as everybody else, I have my serious doubts that this Hawaii Prince Vacaction promotion will sell additional rooms. And remember before committing to booking your Hawaii hotel, make sure that the quoted rate is really what you have to pay at check-out and no surprise resort fees will be added.
What's your alternative to higher Hawaii hotel room rates and resort fees for a Hawaii vacation deal in April? Best way to go these days are fully equipped Hawaii vacation rentals, homes and condos. Maui condo in Kihei are well-known among Maui visitors for their beach locations top amenities and affordability. Same applies to Kauai condos in Kapaau. We loved our walk to the beach, daily tennis and pool. Most of the Big Island condos are very fancy resort condos on the Kohala Coast, which are renting for the same high room rates as the 4- and 5- star hotel.
However, there are great fully equipped Hawaii vacation rentals and homes available, short 10-min. drives to the white sand beaches of Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea beach, with affordable low rates for April and May. Kohala Coast home owners are happy to offer you special rates for April and May 2009. You can cook at your own kitchen, have a Maitai on your lanai, enjoy all the goodies of a local farmers market, go online through free Wifi connection, make use of boogie boards and snorkel for free and so much more.
