Sandy - Hi
Since you have stayed at Andaz Hyatt and seen Four seasons which resort do you recommend for us to stay?
Which resort has a good beach and service? Thank you

Su-Lynn - Hi Sandy,
Although I have not stayed at the Four Seasons I have walked through it and find that it is a beautiful 5-star resort as well. The difference is mainly the decor. The Andaz is brand-new and very modern while the 4 seasons is more established and traditional in style. The Andaz may seem very minimalist in design but I don’t think they sacrificed the luxury details or service. The beaches are beautiful at both resorts. I am pretty sure service is very similar between the 2 as well. Of course, the Four Seasons brand is reknown for excellent service and personal details…I believe there are also club level rooms. I guess it would depend on what you would like more – a modern island escape or traditional island resort feel. I’m sure you will be happy with either decision! Thanks for reading!

Stacy - Hi! My fiance and I are going to Hawaii for our honeymoon in May and we want to eat at Mama’s as well! What is the best time to make a reservation in order to have amazing views/scenery? Thanks!

Su-Lynn - Hi Stacy! Thanks for visiting. I think the earlier you eat dinner the better, as once it gets dark you won’t be able to see anything. I would say around 5-5:30pm. In addition you can also have lunch at Mama’s. If you get there a few minutes early you can take some pictures on the beach out front. It’s quite pretty. Enjoy and congrats on your wedding!
