Hawaii Family Hotels – Tips and Recommendations

  • Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America (USA) to be recognized as one in August 1959. It consists mainly of 132 beautiful islands, but only eight are habited. These islands include Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and the Big Island of Hawaii. Despite being the farthest state of the USA, it is home to over 100 white beaches and resorts that families are raring to go.
  • Hawaii is an incredibly exciting destination for families. It has everything to offer, from nature-loving resorts to the most audacious accommodation. What makes Hawaii unique is the plethora of family-oriented festivities that both parents and kids can enjoy. You will never regret going to these islands.
  • The climate of Hawaii is tropical. The temperature can go as high as 37 degrees Celcius (up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit), but it is because of this weather that made Hawaii the best go-to place for families looking for the most memorable beach experience.
  • We recommend booking your holidays through Booking.com. It’s one of the trusted hotel booking sites out there, and the one with the best deals. Note: we do earn a small commission when you book through them. We display prices usually for a family with two adults and one child, to make pricing more realistic. The actual price you pay might be higher or lower of course based on your family size.
